hey dudes, real quick: reviewing this now, I'm not sure it was clear that the 5-50 million figure was from towers alone. Air collision is the leading cause of bird mortality, and towers, windows, turbines, and everything else combined leads to an estimated 700 million annual birdeaths, if I remember my figures. Anyway, was that clear? or did you think total bird deaths? just wondering. okay, thanks.

no i felt you were talking bird deaths with cell phone towers, because cell phone towers suck! it is interesting to know that that many towers exist and more and more are build each year. I just want to say, I would give up my cell phone if it meant saving millions of birds each year.

It was clear for me! I liked this video. I didn't know cell phones were so devastating to the bird population. Way to inform me. (I wonder what would happen to a bird if I fed it an airhead?)

Yes, it was clear. Very intriguing informational piece with a strong touch of "you." I can hear you talking, even though there is no sound.

Great job relating a bunch of seemingly disparate elements. You know, I haven't even seen "The Birds" and the opening shots kind of weirded me out a bit, so we've got that Halloween theme goin' on. And as far as sound goes, I liked that someone did a piece without any. I certainly didn't expect not to hear anything, so nice variety.

Something political, in a way, only insofar as the only way to make it stop is through political channels.

But this is really alarming and makes me be like, "oh, okay, cell phones are 100% not at all vegan." God. Those number?! When it says "It's hard to count," it's a really good moment.

Also FUCKING WEIRD!! Because I've been talking a lot lately about shooting video of birds flying in circles, like what you have captured here. So when I do it, I'm not stealing it from you, I swear to it.
