Hi Tweeters,

The Seattle Bird Collision Monitoring Project<https://seattleaudubon.org/our-work/conservation/urban-conservation/bird-safe-cities/seattle-bird-collision-monitors/> is gearing up for its fall 2022 field season. We are seeking community science volunteers to help us document bird-window collisions in Seattle.
