Dear fellow birding enthusiasts,

As a lifelong birder and professional aviator for over 16 years, I am conducting 
a nation-wide study on the level of community support for the mitigation 
measures used at airports to reduce the wildlife strike hazard to commercial 
aircraft.  Getting input from different regions of the country is necessary to 
gauge whether there are regional differences due to varying bird populations 
or possible high profile incidents involving wildlife strikes on aircraft.  

Responses are submitted electronically to a database that does not identify 
users, so your answers will be completely confidential.  Findings will be 
released only as analyzed data or summaries in which no individual’s answers 
can be identified.  Please take a few moments to share your opinions and 
experiences.  I appreciate you taking time from your busy schedule to 
contribute toward this important research about community views on wildlife 
mitigation measures at airports.

The survey can be accessed at:

If you would like a summary of my findings, please send me your e-mail 
address at [log in to unmask]  Once the study is complete, I will e-
mail the summary to you.

Best Regards,
