unexpected side-effect of building green

December 15, 2008

building green and killing birds…

greenboston.com had an interesting article this morning about a contradicting after-effect of building “green.”

read the article here.

“An estimated 5 percent of the country’s bird population – or about a billion birds – die each year by crashing into buildings they cannot see”

“Last year, the US Postal Service spent more than $200,000 on such a film to reduce bird kills on a Manhattan building after a local Audubon volunteer corps counted more than 330 dead birds near it during a 2 1/2-month period.”
