Window glass is a major factor of death for migratory birds. Between 100,000,000 to 1,000,000,000 birds die annually from collisions with windows.
I’m Elliott Frank, from Troop 152 in Vienna, Virginia, and for my Eagle project, I wrote, directed, and produced a video public service announcement for the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia, linked here: https://youtu.be/0hPFdRHvEMM.
This video provides an overview on bird collisions with glass, and covers several alternative techniques to bird-safe glass local homeowners can implement on their own windows to help minimize this problem.
I’m an aspiring videographer and video editor, hoping to study film and video in college. The majority of the Eagle projects that I help my troop mates with consist of intensive outdoor manual labor building structures for local organizations. This may seem to you like an unconventional Eagle project, and you’re right. I wanted to combine my passion for filmmaking with my love for birds to create a long-lasting impact on Northern Virginia’s bird population. I’d like to thank the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia for allowing me to make this video on their behalf, and for providing access to my video on their website: audubonva.org
