Things that are good for people sometimes can be very dangerous to birds. One of these dangerous things is glass windows. The problem is that glass is reflective. when you stand in front of a glass mirror, what do you see? Yourself? A glass window on a building can act just like a mirror. If greenery is planted in front of the window, the glass will reflect them. The birds are fooled! They think the reflection is more greenery where they can land, and they fly into the window, injuring or killing themselves.

You can help birds avoid glass windows! Hang lots of colorful decorations in front of windows or put decals on them. The more the better! Also, make sure any flowers or plants cannot be seen from the outside of the window. Birds may see the flowers and plants as shelter or food and try to fly through the window to get to them. For more information on how you can make your windows more bird safe, click here.
