| Bird-Friendly Buildings (BFB) is a key part of Audubon’s Bird-Friendly Communities strategy and reducing bird-window collisions is a central goal of the BFB program. Launched in 2016, the Bird-Window Collision Working Group (BCWG) is a chapter-led, collaborative effort to reduce bird mortality caused by collisions with glass. Inspired by a meeting of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter Network of Bucks, Lehigh Valley, Wyncote, and Valley Forge Audubon chapters, the work is led by Leigh Altadonna, Wyncote Audubon Society and Peter Saenger, Lehigh Valley Audubon Society, with additional support from Keith Russell, Audubon Pennsylvania and the Acopian Center of Ornithology at Muhlenberg College.|
The group’s work focuses on low-rise buildings including homes, schools, apartments, and business parks. Learn more about their work which was featured at the 2019 Audubon National Convention.
