Re: Bird Silhouettes on Glass

It's really common throughout Europe to have these things. Unfortunately they are not always effective and the cafeteria of the European Investment Bank is usually surrounded by drifts of dead birds. Eventually they put up a mixture of black and white birds and this cut the carnage.

The saddest one I saw was a red-tailed kite. A beautiful bird, common as Croydon in Switzerland, but still a sad thing to see crumpled on the terrace.

I think it's worth trying on the multiple bases that the RSPB estimates that around a billion birds per year die from impact with windows and that they also reduce the likelihood of a human/glass interaction and they don't cost much.
