Billions of birds are on the move across North America this fall as they migrate to their southern breeding grounds. Countless young birds, born this summer, are making this challenging journey for the very first time. Unfortunately, many do not reach their destination due to fatal collisions with reflective and transparent glass. Take action today to ensure a safe passage for these tiny travelers!
Paint your windows to protect birds: a fun, kid-friendly activity
You can make your windows bird-safe this fall using washable, non-toxic tempera paint. Learn how in our YouTube video, and also be sure to check out other permanent or semi-permanent bird-safe window solutions to protect birds year-round.

Are you rescue-ready?
Bird-window collisions are at their peak during fall migration. Do you know what to do if you find an injured bird? Learn how to safely help an injured bird, or call our bird rescue hotline at 416-366-3527 (monitored from mid-August to early November, 8am-5pm, 7 days a week). Also consider preparing a few 'rescue packs' to keep in your car, purse, or backpack, should you encounter an injured bird that needs your help in your daily travels. Prepare an unwaxed paper bag by scrunching up a clean tissue and placing it inside the bag. Fold the bag flat and seal with a paper clip or small binder clip. Store rescue packs in a Ziploc bag until needed to keep dry and clean.
