32. no it is not overblown
Architects are notorious for being unresponsive to the problem when it is documented. Ever see those skyscrapers that are deliberately designed to be mirrors to reflect the sky and clouds? Many studies have been done showing the birds killed by those buildings. The stance of the architect's society or union or whatever it is ... is simply that they just do not care. The American Bird Conservancy has lots of material on this. I see dead birds just walking around skyscrapers all the time. People see what they are looking for and they don't see what they don't choose to see.

Having good eyesight is not very useful when some buildings, such as mirrored skyscrapers, are deliberately designed to fool the unsophisticated eye. Birds do not have experience of mirrors!
