Over this past weekend I applied some bird protection to our house. We live in an area with a lot of birds, and we have large parts of our house where we have a lot of windows. On top of that, I like to feed birds and with the landscaping work that we've done over the last three years we've seen a marked increase in the number of songbirds that frequent our yard.
However, we've also seen a huge increase in "bird strikes". Almost everyday birds would hit our windows, and sometimes the hit would be fatal. I searched for a while to find a solution to this problem and finally found Window Alert.
I've applied these decals to the major windows where we were having problems and so far it's been great. No hits that we've heard since then. They don't ruin the view -- and while you can see them they are not annoying. They work by reflecting ultraviolet light which birds can see, but we cannot. If you have a problem with "bird strikes" you should give these a try.
