Detailed Description

The USGS Eastern Ecological Science Center Bird Banding Lab webinar on the threat of bird collisions, current science and future opportunities. It is estimated that over 1 billion birds are killed annually by collisions with glass every year in the United States. This webinar will provide an overview on the threat of bird collisions, the state of the science, how the USFWS is taking the lead to reduce the number of bird collisions at federal buildings across the U.S.; and management approaches and partnering opportunities to better combat this issue!
