Project Safe Flight is a conservation effort to further understand the issue of bird/building collisions in Atlanta and coastal Georgia. The goal of this project is to determine what species are colliding with buildings, how many birds are affected, what parts of town are problematic, and what can be done to make Georgia a more bird-friendly state.
Volunteers with Georgia Audubon’s Project Safe Flight patrol the streets during both spring and fall migration, looking for birds that have been killed or injured after colliding with buildings. More than 2,200 birds, representing 115 different species, have been collected since monitoring began in fall 2015. Ruby-throated Hummingbird continue to be the most collected species.
