Current Opportunities: 

Collision Monitoring

Seattle Audubon is committed to understanding and reducing the risk of bird window collisions in Seattle. We’re developing a long-term research study to help us understand where, when, and why bird window collisions occur and what we can do to prevent them.

Bird window collisions are understudied in the Pacific Northwest. This new program will be one of the first of its kind in Washington. And we’ll need your help to get it off the ground!

Join us in July for either of two online information sessions to learn more.

Friday, July 23 @ 12–1:00 p.m. REGISTER HERE

Wednesday, July 28 @ 6–7:00 p.m. REGISTER HERE

 

Highlights of the project:

  • The first monitoring period will be September 1 – October 31, 2021.
  • Monitors will sign up to cover a route once a week, on the same day of the week, for eight weeks.
  • Buildings included in this initial pilot phase of the study are being finalized this month; pilot monitoring sites will likely be in Seattle Center or the Capitol/First Hill area.
  • The information session will cover the monitoring protocol and answer common questions about building access, data submission, handling dead or injured birds, etc.

These info sessions will cover the same material. You only need to sign up for one.

Can’t attend, but want to learn more? Register anyway, and receive a recording of one of the info sessions.
