San Francisco to tally bird-into-window death toll
SAN FRANCISCO — San Franciscoofficials have launched a program todocument the number of birds that dieby crashing into windows in an effortto reduce such collisions. The city’s planning department isseeking volunteers to count the num-ber of dead birds around their homeseach week during peak migration peri-ods, the San Francisco Chroniclereported on Wednesday. The partici-pants would then log that informationon a city website.Officials say the goal is to raiseawareness about the dangers windowspose to birds and get better numbersabout how many birds are dying thatway.“So far, there hasn’t been enoughscientific data gathered on bird-win-dow collisions in urban residentialsettings,” said Cindy Margulis, execu-tive director of the Golden GateAudubon Society.At least 100 million birds die eachyear in North America by striking win-dows, according to the American BirdConservancy. The group says far morebirds die by colliding with windows orglass buildings than by hitting windturbines or cellphone towers. ASan Francisco ordinance passedthree years ago requires new develop-ment projects to treat some windowswith netting, frosted glass or similarbird deterrents. The ordinance mainlyapplies to new commercial buildingsor large additions to existing commer-cial buildings if they stand in birdflight paths or are near parks or theshoreline, the Chronicle reported.But experts say the protections donot have to be that elaborate, and eveninsect screens or strings in front of large picture windows can help.“The more I learned about birdstrikes, the more I learned how com-pletely avoidable they are if onlyhumans would pay more attention,”Judith Pynn, who signed up for thecity program, told the Chronicle.Pynn and other volunteers get adecal certifying them as a “bird-friend-ly resident” and can be entered in a raf-fle, though the prizes have yet to bedetermined.San Francisco has set aside$140,000 — half of it from a U.S.Fish and Wildlife grant — over a four-year period ending next June for birdsafety efforts, including subsidies forresidents to make large windows safer.

Anyone wanting to hear the music of oneof their favorite bands for a fraction of theprice, should head out to Redwood CityFriday night to catch The Eagles tributeband The Boys of Summer.This is part of Redwood City’s free week-ly Music on the Square concert series.Named after the 1984 song by Eagles’vocalist Don Henley, the band formed backin 2004. It originally started out as a trib-ute band to Henley, but soon launched intoa full-blown Eagles tribute band.“We had the guy who was the Don Henleyvoice,” said Jimmy Williamson, who is ondrums and vocals. “Every time we went outit was all about people yelling ‘TheEagles’to us. It’s been 10 years now and weare known nationally as the Eagles tributewith the Don Henley guy.”“The Don Henley guy” is Darrel Monson,who is on guitar and handles lead vocals.Monson and Williamson started playingtogether back when the SouthernCalifornia natives were in high school in1970. The bass player, Bill Winkler, joined them 33 years ago. The rest of theband is comprised of Craig T. Fall on leadguitar and vocals and Chris Turbis on key-board and vocals.Although the band has been on the roadtouring since Jan. 1, the men, who are intheir late 50’s and early 60’s, have other jobs. One owns a paving business, whileanother owns a tile company. Two runrecording studios and another is a chef inthe movie industry.“We’re all able to get away from our reg-ular jobs and run them from the road,”Williamson said. “We all have families andkids and grandkids. To have support fromhome from our families is just a beautifulthing.”Williamson also enjoys the comradery of the group of guys, being able to recreatethe sound of the Eagles like they do and thestellar venues they play together. The bandplayed in Redwood City about two or threeyears ago, Williamson said.“It was just off the hook,” he said.The Boys of Summer plays songs such as“Take It Easy” to “Hotel California” andeven the newer country hit “How Long.”Why should people come out to theshow?“If they’re Eagles fans, they should comebecause if they want to see the Eaglesthey’re going to pay $200 ticket,”Williamson said. “To hear and see recre-ation they can come for free.”The band plays at the Music On TheSquare at Courthouse Square, 2200Broadway in Redwood City, 6 p.m. Friday,Aug. 22. Aug. 29 is the last week of thesummer concert series.
