Winnipeg Can Be Deadly For Birds

Winnipeg Deadly For Birds

WINNIPEG - A new report says action should be taken in Winnipeg to save birds.

Many birds die in our city and one of the more significant risks is windows.

This report recommends Winnipeg adopt the national Bird-Friendly Design Standard from the Canadian Standards Association.

Visual markers or shading on windows and turning off lights in buildings during peak migration season would go a long way toward solving the problem.

Winnipeg sits in the Mississippi Flyway, a migration path from the boreal forest, through the prairies to the Arctic.
