Window collisions are a serious and often fatal problem for many of our migrant songbirds. But as Heidi Trudell explains in the most recent issue of Birder’s Guide to Gear, not every collision is a fait accompli.
Heidi’s article contains a wealth of information on what are currently understood to be the best methods (and materials) for making windows visible to birds, and it includes some nice example photos so that you can see how the methods are properly implemented. It also does some myth-busting (e.g., raptor silhouettes decals are ineffective).
