Introduction

Our goal:
Substantially reduce bird strikes and mortality at windows in Washtenaw County and beyond.

Some of our monitoring projects:
Eastern Michigan University
University of Michigan
Washtenaw Community College

How can I help? 
There are many things you can do to make your windows more bird-friendly! Check the "Resources/Links" page on the sidebar for tips on how best to reduce bird/window strikes at your home or work.

INJURED BIRDS should be taken to a rehabber IMMEDIATELY:

Volunteers are always appreciated! Checking a problem building 2-3 times per week (March through November) can help establish baseline data and allow us to work towards finding bird safe solutions for problem windows.
