Bird Killings And Glass Buildings

In a recent article in the New Republic magazine I was quite shocked by how many birds are killed every year with birds crashing into Glass buildings. The article concentrated on the new glass stadium in downtown Minneapolis which has killed 700 birds since it opened in the last year or 2. Which makes me wonder how many others are killed every years due to glass buildings.

Anyone know? And is there any alternatives?

According to a certain politician, wind mills are a much larger threat to the bird population. If you were to risk the threat of cancer by standing at the base of a wind mill, you'd find yourself knee-deep in dead birds including several dozen bald eagles. Wind mills are a national disgrace.

As an alternative, I suppose birds could be asked to walk when traversing areas with glass towers.

I thought about it and now I wonder will they recognize as the sky mirror glass, that is toned in non-blue color, e. g. Mercury City Tower from Moscow?
