Decal Windows Protect Birds
I heard from a friend that every year millions of birds die because of our buildings. Not just because we cut the trees and build on top, but because we use excessive glass panes on our buildings and skyscrapers. Birds can’t recognize that its a glass and they ram into them head on and die. The plain polished glass pane may look like a decorated piece of magnificent architecture. But for the birds, its like flying straight into the jaws of death.
Today I bumped into an article in Lifehacker, that could actually be a lifesaver for these poor birds. Birds can see reflected UV light. So either put a UV decal (sticker) on your windows or go for a UV film insulation in all those exposed glass panes. UV insulation will also save energy and Decals add a decorative edge to the panes. It’s a win-live situation for us and the birds.
