Incredibly simple tip to prevent birds flying into window
Sep 20, 2017
Please share this with a birdlover you know. It is often said that between 100 million and a billion birds die in the US each year after striking windows , in the UK the British Trust for Ornithology estimated a few years ago that 100 million birds hit windows each year. I have tried all the usual ways of trying to stop the birds hitting the windows including sticking hawk shapes in the window, which just don’t work. Eventually I came up with this really cheap and simple solution.

The gap is probably less than 4″ , probably 3 ” and the pen I used is like this (but any white “write on glass” pen will do). Make sure it is white as I think part of the reason it works is by triggering bird’s fear of flying into cobwebs. www.amazon.co.uk/Posca-Marker…
