Up to one billion birds strike glass in North America each year, and millions more hit windows each year around the globe, including across Australia. This is an enormous and heart-breaking number. But with your help, we can learn more about where and why it's happening, and work together to prevent one of the highest causes of bird injury and mortality. 

Please use this survey to report incidents of bird strike. 

BirdLife Australia’s Birds in Backyard Program is investigating the scale of the bird-strike problem in Australia, including both window and car collisions. Research is being conducted to guide solutions and best practice guidelines so that we can begin to understand this issue and how it is affecting Australian birds.

The aims of the bird window/car strike project are to:
1. Determine the scale of bird strikes and eventually map potential hotspots and;
2. Collate international research and management solutions that may be applied to Australia.

Read more about the project here and be sure to sign up to receive updates at the end of the quick survey.
 
If you have a sick or injured bird you can find a list of contacts here, or contact your local veterinarian.
