Through the recent years, collisions between air crafts and birds have drastically increased. This occurred possibly because there are more planes in the sky than there were before. On the other hand, perhaps birds are becoming more confused. Deaths which have occurred due to birds attacking planes have exceeded to 219 since 1988. More than 200 air crafts have been destroyed. Most people think that these collisions happen because of increased environmental changes and the fact that planes are much quieter today than they were years ago.
