Saving Birds One Window at a Time

Birds cannot see glass windows. This results in birds colliding with windows, a phenomenon which contributes significantly to bird mortality.

Every year in the United States alone, 100 Million to 1 Billion bird-window collisions occur. While this can happen in any season and at any time of day, it occurs more frequently during spring and fall migration.

The majority of collisions occur at residential and low-rise commercial buildings.

Bird-window collisions are the greatest human cause of bird mortality world-wide. It is more deadly to birds than power lines, pollution and pesticides, vehicles, towers and wind turbines. Only habitat loss and cats are more lethal.

Fortunately, this widespread problem has some relatively easy and cheap solutions.
