We invite birds to our garden in a variety of ways using fragrant flowers, flowing fountains and feeders. To that end, it was disheartening when the occasional feathered friend mistook our window for the sky. That unmistakable thud left an indelible mark on our soul.
The good news: by applying WindowAlert™ Decals, collisions are largely a thing of the past. According to their site:
WindowAlert is a window decal that may be applied to home and office windows. The decals contain a component which brilliantly reflects ultraviolet sunlight. This ultraviolet light is invisible to humans, but glows like a stoplight for birds. Birds have vision that is up to 12 times better than that of humans. WindowAlert decals help birds see windows and avoid striking the glass.
The decals are removable and re-positionable. The static cling variety can be cleaned by rinsing in warm water as necessary. I purchased the Decorative Leaf Decal, but they are available in a variety of shapes.
