Mar. 13, 2019 -  The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that, in 2011, the 46.7 million bird watchers in the United States and Canada generated a total industry output in excess of $107 billion. In spite of this massive interest in birds, up to one billion birds die each year in Canada and the United States when they hit glass windows, walls, and other glass structures. This threat is one of the costliest to bird populations, killing an estimated 10-20% of the birds in North America. But it’s also a relatively easy problem to solve. IGMA and the American Bird Conservancy are raising awareness of this issue. There have been two presentations on the subject at IGMA conferences over the past couple of years.
