Join architect Nick Liadis for a program on the alarming number of birds killed in building strikes, and the solutions to the problem that he sees in architectural details and window treatments. Nick Liadis practices architecture in Pittsburg, PA, and is a certified bird bander, currently volunteering as a bander at the Powdermill Avian Research Center in Rector, PA.

Come at 7:10pm for a chance to talk with fellow birders, and enjoy snacks before the program begins.
