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.
Cats are also one of the top killers of birds worldwide. Keep your cats indoors or consider a 'Birds Be Safe' collar that is proven to save birds (also at Wild Birds Unlimited).
