Best practices for data collection in studies of bird-window collisions (192.5KB) - Data collected by researchers and volunteer-led monitoring programs has been exceptionally important for improving the understanding of bird-window collision mortality. However, after compiling and analyzing data from dozens of monitoring programs, it was revealed that there are common pitfalls that limit the applicability of these data to large-scale studies. This paper covers the best practices to following that will ensure monitoring efforts more accurately document local window collision mortality and better inform large-scale research studies.
