2009 was the 11th combined meeting of Bird Strike Committee USA and Bird Strike Committee Canada. Previous separate meetings of the two organizations have occurred since 1999 throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Presentations have included papers, posters and demonstrations on wildlife control techniques, new technologies, land-use issues, training, engineering standards, and habitat management. These presentations have all contributed to an enhanced awareness of the bird hazard issue.
