I was working from home the other day when I heard something hit one of our back windows. At first all I saw outside were a few downy feathers drifting away on the breeze. But later I discovered the remains of this poor black-and-white warbler lying dead in one of our tomato pots.

NYC Audubon maintains a tool were you can report bird strikes like this. It’s part of their Project Safe Flight program, and they use the information to raise awareness and find ways to help species like this warbler navigate the manmade dangers of New York City and the Atlantic Flyway.
