We share living spaces with birds. Collision with building glass is currently estimated to be the second greatest source of direct mortality of birds. Millions of birds die annually from window collisions. Birds collide with windows on residential, low-rise, and high rise buildings, or on walkways or bus shelters. Bird collisions on glass surfaces occur due to transparency, reflectivity or nocturnal lighting. Collisions happen almost everywhere and on every type of building, but they can largely be prevented.
Help birds to see your window!
While we are forced to spend more time indoors now, we can bring the colors of spring into our rooms.
Use water color or finger paints to draw the spring on your window.
Or use paper, create flowers, butterflies, … and stick them to your window. With tissue paper you can create special light effects in your room. Create origami flowers or simply cut out shapes. You can find ways for all ages to enjoy this activity!
