BIRDCRASHES: You hear an unpleasant thud; unsettled and surprised you investigate. The culprit is a bird, dead on arrival. Like a scene out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie, birds are crashing into windows at alarming rates. You may say, “Birds crash into windows, who gives a cluck?” Actually, quite a few people do. For example, the Kalamazoo Nature Center built a preschool with windows that are easier for birds to see. By Kayla Smith. FOR STURGIS, THREE RIVERS & ALL POINTS.
