This webinar is part of the Continuing Education Webinar Series for Virginia Master Naturalist volunteers.
Description: Window collisions are one of the largest human-caused causes of avian mortality in built environments and, therefore, cause population declines that can be a significant conservation issue. Come hear Professor John Swaddle from the College of William & Mary discuss his latest research on collisions and efforts to reduce them!
