Bird Collision Monitors are volunteers who
patrol areas of downtown Milwaukee in the
early morning hours during periods of peak
migration to collect and rescue injured
or dead songbirds. Injured birds are transported
to the Wisconsin Humane Society Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center for care and deceased
birds are collected for identification.
Data collected from monitoring helps us
understand the window collision problem
you need is a good pair of walking shoes
and one morning a week to spare for this
effort. Prospective monitors will attend
one informative training session and must
be willing to collect dead birds and try
and save injured or suffering birds. You
may want to ask a friend to accompany you;
it's a good way to get some exercise and
watch the sunrise in our lovely city.
spring patrolling season runs from May 1
through May 31. The fall patrolling season runs from September 1 through October 31.
