Reports of such avian mortality at communication towers in North America became common in the s [2] – [7]. These observations were consistent with the long documented mortality of birds at lights, including lighthouses [8], light towers [9], buildings Cited by:

The annual losses due to col- lisions with towers have been estimated at to million birds (Aldrich et al. , Banks ) which represents approximately to percent of the total estimated annual avian mortality (Mayfield , Banks ).

Anthropogenic causes accounted for million bird deaths, less than 2% of total mortality. Recognizing these limitations, Banks () recently analyzed avian mortality, including collisions, related to human activities and estimated that .
