Audubon wants Vikings stadium safer for birds

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Audubon Society of Minnesota is asking the Minnesota Vikings to do more to protect birds from fatal collisions with the massive glass walls of its new stadium.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports (http://strib.mn/1qAu2KU ) the team recently told the society they wouldn't use glazing techniques and lighting that could warn birds away from the building.

The Vikings and the authority overseeing the stadium told Audubon last year they would turn off stadium lights at night to lower risk to birds. But Audubon says that's only a partial solution. They say using a safer glass wouldn't cost that much more for a billion-dollar stadium that's getting hundreds of millions of public dollars.

An MSFA spokeswoman said the agency had no immediate comment. A Vikings spokesman didn't immediately return a call.
