BCAS partners with local and national organizations to address conservation concerns. Following are some of those concerns, as well as events to attend and actions to take.
The Ridgefield Park Eagles
Thanks to the grass-roots action of Bergen County Audubon our nesting Bald Eagles on the Overpeck Creek in Ridgefield park have been protected from development with the company Skymark agreeing to preserve a 10 acre Eagle park for this magnificent pair of raptors. BCAS continues protect the nest site and monitor the nest for the NJDEP.
Bird Collisions with Glass and Buildings
An estimated 300 million to 1 billion birds die each year from collisions with glass on buildings, from skyscrapers to homes. Birds simply can’t tell reflection from reality. Even if a bird flies away after striking a window, it may die elsewhere as a result of the collision.

Shut Down Bird Death Traps
Every year, millions of birds die because of oil pits, power lines, communications towers, and other hazards. In response, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just launched a plan to strengthen the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, one of America’s most important bird conservation laws, to help meet the challenges of the 21st century. Send a message to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today to support this critical action.
