    32 birds are killed each second....

    32 birds die every second in the United States alone. The culprit? Windows!

    Basically according to this this cnn article , about 1 billion birds die in the US every year because of thier lack of ability to detect windows. The article says either a bird sees whatever is beyond the window, or sees the reflections of trees and the sky on the window... either way, birds are doomed!!

    So, I propose, that we all work as a team to board up all windows and anything clear that a bird might fly into, so as we dont kill so many :D

    I have a better idea. Kill the birds with wind farms first. :D

    On a serious note, there are windows made that are bird-friendly. They reflect light differently that standard windows, thereby giving visual cues to the birds there is something here.

    but just think, if no more birds were dying due to windows, then in 30 years we'd have about 30 billion more birds flying around, plus however many billion birds those birds would offspring ;)

    and you HAVE had to have heard about that bird flu going around..... who need 50 billion + more carriers :D

    Seems Bill has even more to answer for. Lucky he decided to give all his money away. Some will surely go to bird welfare organizations.

    Don't for the flight-less birds... they tend to get thier beaks trapped in Linux...

    *da dum crash*




    At Children's Mercy Hospital (where both my parents work) there are large windows that are on both sides of an elavated hall way...birds leave dusty prints on them daily and there are dumpsters below them.

    There doesn't seem to be any shortage of birds.

    Too bad we can't view those 32 birds a second slamming into windows in untimely death with funny music playing in the background.

    There was a big window in the living room of my Grandma's old house and occasionally birds would crash into it when we were there.

    well the number of birds that die per second is directly proportional to the settings on your sick twisted screensaver that features them being killed in a variety of ways

    damn bill gates

    I boarded up my windows along time ago, for the birds. And so the government can't steal my thoughts.

    The birds in this country must be smarter, I haven't ever had one fly into a window here.

    I think the pigeons can die...little flying rats...

    Maybe we should start using duct tape on windows...
