shiny stadium causing bird death

blog_illl_05-01

美國明尼蘇達州上年新建了外場是反光玻璃的體育館。有義工花了11週,發現60隻雀鳥因撞倒建築物而死亡,14隻因而受傷,當中包括20多個物種。但這數目未包括體育館工作人員日常清除的屍體。

a stadium with highly reflective glass was built in Minnesota state last year. volunteers spent 11 weeks and found 60 dead birds that were killed by colliding with the glass windows, and 14 injured birds. this number does not include the number of dead birds regularly removed by stadium staff.
