Preventing Bird Collisions

Migratory birds move through Ohio in the spring and fall traveling to or from their breeding grounds. Experts estimate that up to 988 million birds are killed annually by building collisions in the U.S., with roughly 56% of mortality at low-rises, 44% at residences.

You can help migratory birds at home by reducing nighttime lighting, treating reflective glass, planting native vegetation and carefully placing shrubs and bird feeders around windows. In highrises and lowrises: turn off exterior decorative lighting, dim lobby and atrium lighting, turn off interior lights or draw blinds, especially on upper floors, and consider reducing the reflectivity of glass surfaces, especially those adjacent to green spaces.
