Vikings, 3M to test bird-safe film for new stadium this spring

"A Twin Cities-based manufacturing and innovation giant is working with the Minnesota Vikings on an effort to save migratory birds from colliding with 200,000 square feet of glass on the new stadium rising in Downtown East.
Minnesota Vikings Vice President Lester Bagley said Wednesday that3M has a potentially bird-saving film that could be used on the glass. “It’s a test, and we’ll see what the test shows down the road,” he said.
The Audubon Society and other bird advocates in recent months have been whipped up over the decision by the Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) to use clear glass on the new $1 billion stadium."
