Cool Ways to Prevent Birds from Colliding with Your Windows

There’s something about spring that makes you want to tidy things up in your home – I guess that’s where the whole idea of spring cleaning stems from. Maybe it’s just the charm of seeing Mother Nature take on a new look as things grow.

Well, whatever it is, your spring cleaning will be incomplete and quite pointless if your windows are looking utterly woebegone. Now’s the time to give your window the treatment it deserves. Just as the rest of your home, takes on a new look, let your windows get new looks of their own. There’s no telling the joy and satisfaction you’ll derive from being able to see through your window like it’s not even there.

However, as your windows take on their new shiny glory, our little-feathered friends get a little too excited and decide to pick a fight with their rivals in your windows or simply take a kamikaze flight into your windows.

Thanks to research and modern science, we’re able to give you these tips that will prevent these from continuing.

So why do Birds Collide with Windows?

Reflections in windows create an optical illusion for birds as they fly. These illusions cause them to think the space behind your windows is real and they can actually fly into this space. Well, we know they can’t of course, but that’s just how they perceive it.

The illusions don’t make it easier on them. They also see their reflections in the windows and perceive their reflections as a threat to their territory. It’s a hard life for these birds and you can make it easier for them. And Yourself too – I don’t think you like the mess they make on your windows. Here’s how:

Installing One-way Transparent Films

As the name suggests, you can see through your window while inside your home but nobody and of course your little-feathered friends will be able to get any reflections from the outside. All anyone will see on the outside are the patterns that come with the transparent films. CollidEscape is a perfect example of a one-way transparent film.

Using Window Decals

Decals make for an easy way to prevent birds from colliding with your windows while letting plenty of sunlight into your home. They reduce the reflections from your windows to a large extent. There are different design patterns of decals you can choose from. In acknowledgment of the spring season, you can pick patterns of flowers in blossom. But, the choice is yours.

Zen Curtains

One such beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, they save birds preventing them from colliding with your windows. The string curtains can be purchased in a custom set to match the dimensions of your windows.

Whichever your mind goes with, make your pick and save these birds who can’t tell virtual from reality. Birds life matter.
