Great bird loss summary by David Sibley

David Sibley's website has an excellent summary of bird mortality with a great graph showing the relative losses to different causes. Each of the factors contributing to bird mortality that he mentions was discussed, with specific suggestions about ways we can help, in 101 Ways to Help Birds, a book which has sold several orders of magnitude fewer copies than Sibley's extraordinary field guide. Oh, well.
