Merryspring offers talk: Building with Birds in Mind

Mar 01, 2021
Bird and building collisions can be prevented.

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

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. 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.

This talk is part of Merryspring’s Online Winter Talk series. All Online Talks will be held as Zoom webinars. Access to a computer or smart device is required. All guests must request a meeting link by emailing info@merryspring.org to attend.
