Birds are beautiful, but they can be easily deceived by the glass windows in our homes. As birds start to visit our backyard feeders more regularly in spring, the risks of window strikes increase. To protect our feathered friends, here are some tips and tricks for making windows safe for backyard birds.
There are two main types of window collisions: daytime and nighttime. In daylight, birds crash into windows because they see reflections of vegetation, or see through the glass to potted plants or vegetation on the other side. At night, nocturnal migrants (including most songbirds) crash because they fly into lighted windows. Learn more about how to prevent daytime AND nighttime window strikes here: http://ow.ly/QI4m30bLEPA
