Here’s a staggering statistic: nearly one BILLION birds die on an annual basis as the result of collisions with windows.
Scary stuff, right?
Well, it doesn’t have to be, so long as we are all willing to help our feathered friends along the way. As more studies are released on the subject, more businesses, municipalities and residents are coming cognizant of the effects our homes and the places we work have on birds and the natural world around us.
With many architects now designing bird-friendly buildings and structures, the art of reducing window and bird collisions is really beginning to take hold. For a number of years, we have obviously advocated for proper window decal placement and have hosted a number of different products in our Ottawa area stores. As time has marched on, innovations have been made in the space and just this year, we began to carry a new window collision product made by the clever folks at 3M.
