Seneca Rocks to present program on avoiding bird-window collisions

From staff reports

Seneca Rocks Audubon members Paulette Colantonio and Alice Thurau will present a program created by the Bird-Window Collision Working Group at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, at the Clarion Free Library at 644 Main St.

The Bird-Window Collision Working Group is a collaborative group made up of members from several Audubon chapters in Pennsylvania, along with Pennsylvania Audubon and the Acopian Center for Ornithology at Muhlenberg College.

The program is free to the public.

An estimated one million birds die daily as a result of hitting windows in the U.S. Most of those collisions occur with buildings four stories or less like homes and apartment buildings.

The program will inform the public of the extent of the problem and also offer advice on finding solutions that are available.

There will be handouts describing a variety of window treatments, actual samples to examine, and time to discuss this problem.
