Date: Thursday, October 13, 2016 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
If you’ve heard the sad “thud” as a bird strikes your window, this Lunchbox Talk is for you. Kim and Lynn share a number of effective strategies for saving birds at your home. Window collisions are a leading cause of bird mortality in the United States, with nearly a billion bird deaths each year caused by window strikes. The good news is that you can bird-proof your windows and still see out of them to enjoy the birds you love.
Free; registration required.
