Valley Talk: Bird-Window Collisions with Keith Russell
October 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It’s estimated that 360 million to one billion birds collide with windows in the U.S. every year making bird window collisions one of the most significant conservation issues affecting birds today. This talk will discuss the causes of bird collisions with windows, especially on residential buildings, and what can be done to prevent them.
Keith Russell is the Program Manager for Urban Conservation for Audubon Pennsylvania. Based in Philadelphia he works on a variety of bird conservation issues including bird collisions with man-made structures, birds and nocturnal lights, non-native plants, and migration stopover habitat. He is also a research associate of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and he has received a number of awards including the 2016 American Birding Association’s Ludlow Griscom Award for Outstanding Contributions to Regional Ornithology.
