Clear the way for the Birds!

While migratory birds face many perils during their journey, collisions with human-built structures receive relatively little public attention. I've read one expert's study that estimated up to 100 million birds die from collisions during migration in North America each year.

Eagle Optics is a proud program sponsor of International Migratory BirdDay. This celebration recognizes the incredible journeys of migratory birds between their breeding grounds in North America and their wintering grounds in Mexico, Central, and South America. This year's theme for International Migratory Bird Day is Collisions: Clear the Way for Birds.
