Flocks of Birds Perish by Crashing into New Minnesota Vikings Stadium

Scores of birds are dying due to collisions with the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, according to a new report from the Audubon Society. The finding supports previous claims that the building is dangerous to birds because of its reflective glass facade.

.

The survey started last autumn when Jerry Bahls, president of the Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis, and other volunteers began walking the stadiums perimeter to search for injured or dead migratory birds. The volunteers collected close-up photos of 74 birds  60 dead and 14 stunned or injured from 21 species  and documented the locations where the birds were found.

.

By comparison, the previous average death rate for a single building in Minneapolis during a fall migration was 42 birds, according to the report.

.

It just confirms what weve been saying, that birds will die there and the numbers are pretty substantial, Bahls said. After accounting for regular removal of birds by the facilitys maintenance and security staff, the Audubon team now projects 500 deaths over three years for the stadium, which would be double the previous high for a single building within the city limits.

.

The Audubon Society and local conservation groups raised concerns about the building as early as 2014 because of the glass exterior, which can reflect large portions of the sky or vegetation. This reflection tricks birds into flying into the glass. An estimated 365 million to 988 million birds die each year from building collisions in America, according to a 2014 study by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and U.S. Fish and Wildlife.
