BBG new visitors center opens

Today the Brooklyn Botanic Garden new visitor center opened in an official ceremony.

It isnt bird news but for the fact that the new visitors center is all glass and that presents a problem if reflective enough to confuse birds. About 2 years ago, I met with the architects and BBG's chief manager on construction projects along with BBC's Steve Nanz and Susan Elbin of the NYC Audubon to discuss our concerns.

Now the trial basis begins.  We need to look and see if any birds are found dead or injured at that center, So, take a picture, send to me at  and document the species, time and date if found at the base of the visitor's center located at the Washington Avenue entrance.. We can't rush to judgement until evidence presents itself over time wthin a fixed timeframe . Migration is also a very good time to check. Thanks

Here's the announcement and news
