Why Bird Safety Film?
"Birds cannot see glass. They see a reflection of their habitat (trees, bushes, water, sky) in windows or in the mirrored exteriors of office towers and other structures, but they cannot see the glass. From a bird’s perspective, glass is an invisible barrier to their habitat.
The growth of dense, urban areas along ancient, bird migration routes poses a significant and often fatal threat to migrating birds. Ornithologists now claim that collisions with human-built structures are the leading cause of migratory bird mortality in North America, second only to habitat loss.
Deceived by the reflection, and unable to detect the presence of glass or mirrored exteriors as solid objects, birds often collide head-on with the windows and buildings themselves. Many migratory birds die on impact or sustain serious injuries that prevent them from continuing their journey. Stunned birds fall to the ground and become vulnerable to predation.
Migratory birds will also collide with the clear glass on structures like greenhouses, solariums, bus shelters, walkways between buildings, or windows that meet at the corners of homes or workplaces. They see through these glass structures to the trees or bushes on the other side and strike the glass in an attempt to find refuge. The same will occur when they see interior, ornamental trees and plants in glass-walled lobbies or through the windows on our homes." Source - flap.org
