Activity

Either individually or with a partner, go for a 45-minute walk around campus. Walk slowly.

Take a variety of photographs using “birds-eye vision”, not to be confused with “birds-eye view”.

Look for windows that reflect the surrounding foliage (trees/shrubs), transparent windows that open to rooms with plant life, windows that reflect other windows, or areas that may trap and disorient a bird—any feature that you believe could pose a collision threat. You may also want to take video/photos of birds that you encounter.

Upload a selection of these photos/videos to our Instagram story.
