Creating a Bird Safe Environment at the University of Chicago
More than five million birds pass through Chicago in airspace known as the “Mississippi Flyway" during spring and autumn migration seasons. During this bi-annual journey, tens of thousands of birds lose their lives when they collide with building windows, which, for various reasons, they are unable to see by day or at night. Implementing some small changes can make a big difference in creating a more bird-safe environment at the University of Chicago.
