a diary of death and windows

Name:
windowbird
***if you find a LIVE and INJURED bird, 462-6675 is Andrea, our Alton rehabber...you can drop the [live] bird off at Riverbend Wild Bird Supply*** (then e-mail me with all of the details - h.trudell at principia.edu)

...if it's dead, bag it, label it (date/building & location/your name/time) and make sure the bio folks know about it and e-mail me letting me know all of the above details, plus description or pic of the bird (h.trudell at principia.edu)

this journal was created to document window-killed or otherwise dead birds on the Principia campus...

let's call it "bird population impact studies, with an emphasis on principia college. the focus is on windows as a primary cause of injury and mortality among migrant passerines," shall we?
