Birds provide billions to our economy in eco-services. In the U.S. we lose an estimated one billion birds each year to collisions with window glass. We now have materials that can make buildings safe for birds without sacrificing light, appearance, or view clarity. This class explains how to recognize and remediate hazards to birds in the built environment. Case studies and a slide show illustrate how many sustainable strategies for controlling heat and light can also reduce bird mortality. Techniques now in use for evaluating the relative threat level to birds of different materials are described, along with typical results.
