When thinking about your dream home, did you ever think about local birds? Most people don’t. They think it means bird feeders in the garden or maybe somewhere for some birds to nest nearby. However, every year a shocking 1 billion birds flying into our windows – the lucky ones are just stunned while many more die on impact or soon after

While skyscrapers and office blocks do the most damage – their windows reflecting the sky around them, there is much we can do at home too. This includes:

  • Angled glass at 20 degrees
  • Fritted glass
  • UV-reflective glass
  • Wind chimes
  • Tape Strips on glass
  • Year-round bug screens
