The initial idea for this project came from long time Detroit Audubon Society member Jonathon Walton. After many years of seeing dead birds around the base of the building in Detroit where he works, the sight of so many dead migrants year after year compelled him to contact Detroit Audubon to see if something could be done. Detroit Audubon leadership set out to find if any one else was doing anything to address this issue.
