Bird safety is integral to the sustainable building movement, and New York City Audubon has stepped in to offer techniques and strategies that complement the LEED building rating system.
“Bird-Safe Guidelines” is a new 55-page manual for architects, landscape designers, municipality officials, policy makers, and other professionals. It reveals the magnitude of bird collisions with glass and describes the methods to reduce bird crashes. The guidelines also suggest ways to retrofit existing buildings.
The guidelines, in PDF form, are available through NYC Audubon.
