You'd be surprised what flies into the windows of rural houses - examples I've come across include emerald ground doves and graceful honeyeaters.

I suspect most terrestrial bird species would be susceptible to cars.

Wow - so (excluding cats) say 230m a year - which would scale to around 20m a year in Aus I would guess. Windfarms are totally insignificant overall,
but of course different structures would get different types of bird -
windows would mainly affect urban birds which tend to be common and/or
feral. Pesticides would be more widespread. Windfarms would probably
"target" specific species dependant on location of course.
