Human Caused Bird Mortality – Request for Bird Carcasses from SW British Columbia

For the past two years Tara Imlay of the Canadian Wildlife Service and her colleagues have been researching bird mortality from things such as collisions with windows and vehicles, and those killed by cats and other domestic animals.

This is their final year of carcass collection which will take place from September 2021 to April 2022.

They are again requesting BCFO members and other interested members of the public to send in carcasses of birds that they find. Please record the day and location where the bird was found, and freeze the body (placing in a Ziploc bag or similar is sufficient).
