How to Prevent Birds From Flying Into Your Windows

Birds have an unfortunate tendency to mistake the clear glass of windows or patio doors for open air. As a result, they sometimes fly directly into the glass, which can lead to injury or death for the bird. Fortunately, there are things you can do to prevent this issue.

How to Prevent Birds From Flying Into Your Windows

In this post, window replacement professionals at Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares ways to prevent birds from flying into your windows.

Screens or Netting

Adding a mosquito screen over your window is a surprisingly effective way of preventing birds from flying into it. Alternatively, netting is also a good way of preventing this as the bird can simply bounce off the taut mesh netting before hitting the glass. Just make sure that it’s wide enough to prevent entanglement.

Shutters

Installing external shutters on your window replacement unit is another good way of preventing birds from hitting the glass. Close the shutters when the windows aren’t in use so the birds will see them. To install replacement windows with shutters in your home, you can always turn to Renewal by Andersen of Portland.

Move Feeders

If you have feeders close to your windows, then that may be a contributing factor to this issue. To rectify this, move your feeders or bird baths more than 30 feet away.

Sun Shades or Awnings

Sun shades and awnings can be a great help in preventing birds from hitting your window. These devices help minimize the reflection and transparency of your window.
