Latest on Birds and Windows

I've been posting about the problem of birds hitting windows for a long time, though not as long as Bill Watterson (see above). Recently I got to spend an afternoon with Dr. Dan Klem who is the leading researcher on this topic. He teaches at Muhlenberg College just up the road from me in Allentown. I've posted an interview with him over at Urban Birdscapes. So if you want to check out the latest on birds and windows, that's the place to be.

Thanks for posting this. The cartoon is very moving. It's always a special category of heartbreak to have a bird hit the glass. I use some of those decals on my window to reduce the problem, and placed our bird feeder very near the window, and I think those things have helped, but every now and then there's a tragedy...and it feels just awful. Good to see the topic get the attention it deserves.
