Hello All.
I am interested in collecting information on this topic. All information is 
welcome, but peer reviewed work is especially useful.
I work for a NGO<> that creates rating tools 
for assessing the environmental impacts of different types of buildings.
I am trying to convince the board to incorporate a "bird strike minimization" 
credit into our tools.
We all know that massive numbers of birds are killed each year by crashing into 
windows and glass buildings.
This is especially true in the northern hemisphere, and there is a good chance 
that a credit incorporated into Australian tools, will also be taken up by our 
international counterparts.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Kind Regards,
Steve Ransom
