Hi Dave

I remember an item (in Wingspan?) giving alarmingly high casualty rates for Swift Parrots in Hobart as a result of collisions with windows and high fences (eg around tennis courts).

But I take your main point. And I would like to nominate excessive lighting as another threatening process, especially for its effects on nocturnal insects with consequent effects on ecosystems and therefore birds.
