Building with Birds in Mind talk with Maine Audubon

Event has passed

Nick Lund of Maine Audubon will lead an online webinar titled “Building with Birds in Mind,” on Tuesday, March 16, at 12 p.m., hosted by Merryspring Nature Center. 

“Believe it or not, nearly one billion birds die each year in the United States after striking windows, making building collisions one of the leading causes of bird mortality,” said Merryspring, in a news release. “But, it's a preventable problem.”

In this program, Maine Audubon's Nick Lund will talk about why birds hit windows and how anybody can help save birds from strikes by building with birds in mind.

Lund is Maine Audubon's Network and Outreach Manager. He is also a writer focusing on birds and science, with regular columns in the Portland Phoenix and in the National Audubon Society magazine, and bylines in Slate, the Washington Post, and others.
