Project Safe Flight Unwrapped: Fall 2020

Aurora Crooks | Jan 15, 2020
Despite difficult and uncertain circumstances this fall, Project Safe Flight continued forward in its efforts to study bird collisions throughout our city. This community science project, now in its 24th year, relies on the efforts of volunteers, who wake up at the crack of dawn from the start of September through mid-November to monitor select routes in our city for birds that have collided with buildings. This fall, 28 enterprising volunteers monitored 6 different routes throughout the city and reported 403 bird collisions—more than double the amount found in fall 2019.
