New York-The New York City Audubon's efforts to document migratory bird deaths and injuries after striking the city's buildings is paying off. In July, the Morgan Processing and Distribution Center, a United States Postal Service site, retrofitted its windows-like decorative panels with black vinyl film to deter migrating birds. The Morgan Center announced the change and cited the NYC Audubon Society's careful recording of hundreds of bird deaths caused by the building. The chapter currently monitors other buildings in the city that are a danger to birds, including the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bellevue Hospital Center and the World Financial Center, as a part of its "Project Safe Flight".
