Did you know that as many as 100,000,000 birds are killed each year in North America by colliding into windows?
Do you know what to do to prevent birds from colliding with your home's windows?
Do you know what to do if you find a bird that has been injured in such an accident?
Many residents of Clark County now do since Discovery Day at Clark County Wetlands Park on Sunday July 6th. Over 600 people attended this family-friendly event.
Trish Wooddy and Nancy Chang were on hand at the Red Rock Audubon table to help the public learn about window strikes. They demonstrated a number of solutions for homeowners and renters. For example, commercially sold solar screens can be installed on the outside of the window or you can actually make your own inexpensive screen barriers. Decals, ultra-violet paints and even bars of soap can help.
Children who visited our table made their own raptor decals to place on their windows to scare birds away.
Events like Discovery Day are a great way to let our community know about our organization.
We are more that people who watch birds. We are active conservationists concerned about our environment and work toward solutions to protect birds and other living things.
