How to Prevent Birds from Hitting Your Windows

Many birds fly into windows because they cannot see the glass. During migration, this can be particularly deadly because birds can hit windows at considerable speeds. Some birds fly at the window because they see their reflection and think it's another bird invading their territory.

Make your windows safer for the birds by following these suggestions:

  • Locate feeders and bird baths 30+ feet (9 meters) from your windows. If you want your feeders close to your windows, move them to within three feet (1 meter) of the window, or put up a window feeder. That way, if birds hit the window when "fleeing a predator," they will not be going fast enough to harm themselves.
  • Where practical, use window screens.
  • Place decals, including cutouts of raptors, and leaded glass decorations in windows. (Ask in-store about UV decals).
  • Put vertical exterior tape strips four inches apart on windows.
  • Use interior vertical blinds and open the slats halfway.
  • Plant shade trees outside windows to reduce the reflection.
