    Birds flying into glass is a common cause of bird deaths but there are ways that you can minimise the chances of this happening. This article will give you a few options on how to keep birds away from your windows.  %%AFC-ADVERT%%

    Ways to Stop Birds Flying Into Glass

    • Buy some bird screens for your windows. Bird screens are designed to cushion the impact if birds try flying into glass. They work by hanging loosely against a window and are transparent so it won’t affect the amount of light entering the room.
    • A cheaper option would be to buy some white string and tie it across a window at 12 inch intervals.
    • Keep blinds partially closed to minimise any window reflections. If you do not have blinds then lace or gauze type curtains are good as they let the light in but stop the majority of reflections.
    • Do not put birdfeeders close to windows make sure the window is at least a couple of metres away from the birdfeeder.
    • Apply a transparent window film. This window film will not affect your ability to see outside or change the amount of light let into the room it will simply eradicate reflections.
