Who we are

Members of the Chicago birding community created a working group for the advancement of a bird-friendly building ordinance for the city of Chicago.  Representatives from Chicago Audubon Society, Chicago Bird Collision Monitors, Chicago Ornithological Society and Illinois Ornithological Society have formed "Bird Friendly Chicago", an alliance to promote a safer urban environment for birds through improved lighting, landscaping and glass features of buildings. Partner organizations and individuals are invited to join our efforts.
