Great Hearts Initiatives | Chicago Bird Collision Monitors

Mission

Chicago Bird Collision Monitors (CBCM) is an all volunteer bird conservation project that operates under the auspices of the Chicago Audubon Society.

We are dedicated to the protection of migratory birds through rescue, advocacy and outreach.

CBCM works to protect and recover migratory birds that are killed and injured in the downtown Chicago area each spring and fall migration. Confusing lights and glass building design cause thousands of birds migrating along the lakefront to collide with downtown buildings. Our teams spend the early morning hours recovering these birds to save the injured and document the fatalities that have occurred.

We promote bird-safe lighting and building design to reduce bird collision hazards. Our project collaborates with building management, architects, planners and the public to prevent bird collisions.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"Attention to the little things can add up to making a big difference, so why not help a bird today? A vast number of birds make their way north and south in migration each year, but many species are in decline, and you never know, the one you scoop up downtown today may end up fostering a healthy bunch of nestlings. The CBCM makes it easy to make..." - Stephen Constantelos
