Many birds fly into windows because they cannot see the glass. During migration, this can be particularly deadly because birds can hit windows with incredible force. This is different from when a bird flies at a window repeatedly because they see their own reflection and think it is an invading bird.
Make your windows safer for the birds—and yourself—by following these suggestions:
· Locate feeders and birdbaths 30+ feet from your windows. If you want your feeders close to your windows, move them to within 1–3 feet of the window, or put up a window feeder. That way, if birds hit the window when "fleeing a predator," they will not be going fast enough to harm themselves.
· Where practical, use window screens.
· Place decals, including cutouts of raptors, and leaded glass decorations on outside of windows.
· Put vertical exterior tape strips 10 centimeters apart on windows.
· Cover windows with soap if appropriate.
· Plant shade trees outside windows to reduce the reflection.
