They fall on their backs

" ... on a single night in May, as many as 21 million birds cross an imaginary line connecting Toronto and Hamilton."

Countless birds die each year after crashing into brightly lit buildings at night.

940, 000 die annually after colliding with the windows and mirrored walls of Toronto's sleek office towers and apartment buildings.

" They see the buildings as a world they can fly into. In some cases, they're falling on their backs, they're falling into the lunches of people at their picnic tables. "

Hmmm, but with avian flu a serious threat, you'd like to think the sick ones would be more likely to end up dead before they get too far. Just don't eat them with your lunch!
