Training for Bird Collision

March 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Collision monitoring is a statewide community science effort supporting Lights Out Texas. Volunteers spend roughly 2-3 hours each morning before sunrise during spring migration locating birds that have been injured or killed due to striking a building. Volunteers will walk a 2-mile pre-defined route around 10 buildings downtown and collect data on any birds that they find. Our volunteers do NOT need to have expert knowledge on birds – data is entered into iNaturalist where others can help identify or confirm the species. We provide kits with all the materials needed. This data will be used to help scientists better understand the factors that contribute to nighttime collisions, the species most susceptible to collisions, and the best strategies to reduce collisions. Collision monitoring will run from March 15 – May 15.

We will be holding a mandatory training on March 7 at 6 PM for volunteers (volunteers should register for the training at this link: volunteersignup.org/FQXYM).

The zoom information for the training is below. This training will be recorded for those who are unable to attend, and we require all volunteers to confirm that they have watched and understood the training prior to signing up for a monitoring day.
