Sadly, there used to be decals to prevent bird strikes on many of the windows, but they were taken down during the pandemic due to "renovations." Administration has not been very responsive to calls for them to be put back.
Thanks. Apparently there's been a few of them found dead around the Bio-Life and SERC buildings in the last few days, according to one of the professors. My guess is they might have been going for the spotted lanternflies that have been bombarding SERC, which is completely glass walled outside for the first two stories. 😞
Found this morning on Temple University's main campus in Philadelphia PA, between the Bio-Life and Beury buildings. Best guess is that it smacked into one of the 3rd story Bio-Life windows. Green back, yellow breast, black cheeks, about the size of a small computer mouse. The only bright yellow birds I've seen near here (about an hour north) have been goldfinches, but I don't think that's what this is.
