Yesterday - Sound on. During migration, about six birds a day die on campus, a statistic that mirrors the millions of birds — up to a billion — who die in the U.S. each year in window collisions. Such extraordinary numbers alarm biologists and may have consequences for the viability of many songbirds, says ornithologist David Flaspohler, @mtuforestryenv professor and director of undergraduate studies, worked with with student Enterprise team members Phillip Cauley, Marcus Stojcevich and Cole Kendall to help test the team's prototype of an internet-controllable circuit breaker is connected to test sensors, in different shapes and sizes, placed on the glass. The tiny, window-mounted sensor detects vibration and sends a wireless signal to a laptop computer that registers each strike. 🐦 🐦 🐦 Project leader and visual and performing arts assistant professor Lisa Gordillo (cradling a black and white warbler) challenges her design classes to create window treatments for use in specific strike areas - a systematic approach that preserves birds and views.
