One of the photographs I sent to Brandon was a window-strike Ovenbird that I 
held in my hands and survived, at least long enough to fly and perch and go 
to the bubbler!  I believe some of what he is trying to show is the impact 
of humans on migration, i.e. buildings, lights, etc.  The general public is 
just not aware of small songbird migration it seems.  He has done 
documentation on amphibians and more.  Some of his listed websites are:
