Experts estimate that up to a billion birds die each year from window strikes. Much of the mortality takes place during the spring and fall migrations.
You can help by placing decals, tape, netting or screens on your windows to break up the reflection. Hanging window chimes or streamers may also help. There are many items on the market, including a new tape made by the American Bird Conservancy. For more information on window collisions go to abcbirdtape.org. Your birds will thank you!
