Windows are everywhere: in our homes, offices, stores, cabins...everywhere. Bird Collisions with windows is a leading cause of bird death across North America. Birds cannot see glass. They see a reflection of their habitat (trees, bushes, water, sky) in windows but they cannot see the glass. FLAP (Fatal Light Awareness Program) works to safeguard migratory birds in the urban environment through education, policy development, research, rescue and rehabilitation. They have an excellent website to help save birds. You can help in your own yard by closing your blinds, hanging things in front of your window to break up the surface or pick up UV window clings at Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop.
NOTE: If you'd like to share your photos of birds please do so on ourFacebookor bring them into the store for our bulletin board.
