Noel J. Cutright Bird Club – Simple Strategies to Prevent Bird-Window Collisions

June 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Joins the Bird Club for an enlightening presentation by Chuck Hagner, former editor-in-chief of Bird Watching magazine and board chair of the Western Great Lakes Bird and Bat Observatory. Every year in the United States, between 365 and 988 million birds are killed after colliding with buildings. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the greatest mortality does not occur at gleaming, glass-covered high-rises, but at shorter buildings, and especially at residences.This means that homeowners across the country have a great opportunity: By decreasing the number of birds that strike their windows, they can dramatically improve the state of our birds. In this presentation, Chuck will describe proven strategies and effective products that homeowners can use to keep birds from striking their homes.

Pre-meeting bird hike at 6 PM. Meeting at 7 PM.


The bird club meets the first Tuesday of every month. It brings together those who enjoy observing and learning more about birds and sharing these interests with others. All activities are free & open to the public. Attend a meeting or field trip to become a member and receive the electronic bimonthly newsletter.
