It’s unfortunate that the question has to be asked, but the issue is actually quite common. Bird strikes are one of the leading causes of avian animal deaths in the U.S. states. Specifically, the U.S. Fish and Game Department estimates that approximately 365 million to 988 million birds die each year as a result of window collisions.

If you’ve been dealing with bird collisions yourself lately or you’re concerned about the welfare of Dallas’ bird population, you’ll be happy to know there’s a solution. It’s called bird safety film.

In this article, we’ll discuss how to prevent birds from hitting windows by installing bird collision film.

Why Do Birds Crash into Windows?

While windows may be easy for you and I to see, to birds, they’re less than obvious. Many windows in commercial buildings located around Dallas have a reflective surface. In the sunlight, they show a mirror image of their surroundings. Sometimes this includes nearby trees and bushes.

Birds often mistake these reflections as the real thing. And when they’re looking for a place to land or build a nest, they fly towards them, unknowingly heading to their death. Flying at high speeds, they hurl they bodies at full force onto the hard glass surface. Sometimes, they break a wing or a bone, but often, the results are fatal.

How to Prevent Birds from Hitting Windows with Window Film

One of the best ways to prevent birds from hitting windows is to install window film. Any Dallas window tinting contractor can provide this service for you.

Once in place, the specialized film acts as a visual warning for birds. Subtle stripes, patterns, or dots indicate the presence of something else besides the reflected image. That way, birds understand that the area is unsafe for landing and fly around the building instead of into it.

Installing bird safety film is a responsible and compassionate decision. Truly, it’s one of the best ways to do your part to help keep birds safe.
