Project Safe Flight Atlanta is a conservation effort to further understand the issue of bird/building collisions in the Atlanta metro area. The goal of this project is understand what species are colliding with buildings in Atlanta, how many birds are affected, what parts of town are problematic, and what can be done to make Atlanta a more bird safe city.
Volunteers with Atlanta Audubon Society’s Project Safe Flight Atlanta have been patrolling the streets during bird migration this fall looking for birds that have been killed or injured after colliding with buildings. To date, more than 225 birds, representing more than 40 different species, have been collected bringing the total collected since fall 2015 to nearly 500 birds of 63 different species. Notable species collected this fall include Sora, Baltimore Oriole, Bay-breasted Warbler, Cape May Warbler, and Chimney Swift.
