How to stop birds hitting windows is a question many of us ask when we sadly find a bird that has fatally collided into a window.
Watching our garden birds through the window is a simple pleasure in many of our lives. This makes it all the more heart breaking when you hear the dull thud of a confused bird flying into a window. Sometimes, if we’re lucky the bird is only stunned and will fly off a little later, but sadly this isn’t always the case.
Ultimately, there’s only so much we can do in protecting our feathered friends from the peril of windows. If you find a bird that has hit your window, it may just be stunned so leave it alone and check up on it later. You could also transfer the bird to a dark safe place to rest, from this it’ll either recover or die from its injuries. For further advice please contact your local wildlife charity which can be found at: Search the Rescue Directory.
Read on for some of the steps you can do to reduce the number of birds sadly hitting our windows.
