Scientists estimate that up to one billion birds die annually as a result of window strikes in the United States alone. At the Wildlife Care Center, we see from 200 to 300 strike-related cases each year, or roughly 10 percent of the total case load. Birds do not recognize glass as a solid object and are prone to collisions, especially when passing through unfamiliar landscapes.
Every year the Wildlife Care Center treats 3,000 injured or orphaned native animals. If you would like to make a donation to support our wildlife rehabilitation work at the Wildlife Care Center, click here.
