All too often, the sound of a bird hitting a window is the sound of death.
Birds see windows as open space to fly in, so they usually hit at full speed. Sometimes, they are just stunned, but many times, they die.
The American Bird Conservancy has been working on ways to reduce bird collisions with windows, and it is introducing BirdTape as one such option. BirdTape is applied to windows. It makes portions of the windows visible, deterring birds from thinking they can fly through. Check out the video below:
Considering an estimated 300 million or more birds die from window collisions each year, BirdTape is a welcome idea. For more information, click here.
If I never again hear the sound of a bird hitting a window, that would be music to my ears.
