Bird Silhouettes on Glass

I'm sure all of you have seen the bird silhouettes on glass in Switzerland. I wondered why I had only seen this pheonomenon here. As there are birds, and glass buildings in every country. Either that people care more about birds here, or the birds are more stupid here, or as my Swiss friend offered. He thinks that birds in England wear crash helmets- still don't buy that.

In my research I came upon this website. Saying it is a global problem, and more birds die in the US than in a major oil spill every day.

Why is it then, when I lived in London I never saw deads birds on the floor , or even slightly dazed pigeons? Where on earth can they get these figures from?

Has anyone witnessed a bird flying into their window?

I have actually had a nightmare about this with birds halfway through windows and bus shelters.. but im still not giving up the cheese
