Vancouver Window Collision Project

Did you know that window collisions are among the leading human-related causes of bird deaths? Every spring and fall, many species of birds migrate through Vancouver. When birds collide with windows they can die on impact, sustain injuries, or become stunned, leaving them vulnerable to predators.

Current estimates of bird mortality from window collisions are based on work conducted in eastern North America. Understanding the impacts of window collisions in western Canada is crucial for conservation and policy planning. Bird Studies Canada aimed to address knowledge gaps and engage communities through this Citizen Science program that monitored bird-window collisions.

While the Vancouver Window Collision Project is now finished, you can still contribute to conservation efforts by collecting data on species, collision evidence, and building information and reporting it to Bird Mapper.
