At the March meeting of OKC Audubon tomorrow night, March 20, Nathan Kuhnert will present the results of several years of his own research into bird fatalities in downtown Oklahoma City. Nathan's interest was prompted by the large number of dead birds he saw as well as the reports he received from other concerned workers in the business district. Nathan conducted regular surveys, collected carcasses, took photographs and kept detailed fatality records for several years to document the hazard posed by glass or mostly glass structures when insufficient mitigation strategies are employed. His research is the first of its kind in Oklahoma City and is probably one of the more thorough efforts in a major business district in the central and southern parts of the Central Flyway. Nathan will also discuss the constellation of organizations continent-wide who are involved in calling attention to the problem and in communicating about the technologies which are available to solve it. This month OKC Audubon will return to its traditional meeting room in the newly renovated Will Rogers Park Garden Exhibition Center. The meeting will run from 7 to 9 PM. Non-members are encouraged to attend. For more info on the program and Nathan's goals, go to http://okc-audubon.org/. Bill DiffinOKC Audubon President
