Why do birds strike windows? What can you do to prevent this?  Many migratory songbirds fly thousands of kilometres from tropical over-wintering sites, only to meet an untimely end after hitting a picture window.  This has a huge impact on songbird populations already threatened by habitat loss, climate change and non-native predators like house cats. Join Dr. Emily McKinnon to learn more about this important issue. Get practical tips to help prevent collisions and practise some easy DIY solutions on some tester windows.
