Keywords:oiseaux, collisions, édifice, vitre-miroir, mortalité, population, déclin, habitat, Québec
Since its construction in 1978, thousands of birds have been killed following collisions on the Marly mirror-glassed building located in the western area of Quebec City. This paper presents ornithological observations and describes the collision phenomenon at this site. Data show that the number of birds killed by collisions has declined dramatically over the 30-year period. Probable causes of this decline are discussed.
