How the Birds See It
Birds take what they see literally. Reflections in glass appear like habitat they can fly into. Strikes result in bird deaths, and there are ways to prevent them.
Bird Strike Support
American Bird Conservancy reports that up to 1 billion birds a year die in the United States from hitting windows. The group offers solutions to retrofitting windows at your home or office.
Begin with windows where you have found a dead bird. Large windows, especially those that reflect habitat and sky are another place to implement avian life saving strategies. Also, check windows near bird feeders and bird baths. Read tips here.
