Every year more than 100 million birds die as a result of hitting glass in the United States alone. You can prevent some bird injuries by helping birds avoid flying into your windows at home by making a simple but effective bird deflector.

You'll need:

  • A piece of string long enough to hang from above the window to about 1/3 from the bottom
  • A small pine cone or other light ornament for weight. Choose something small and light because it might hit the window when it’s windy.
  • Strips of shiny silver paper or aluminum foil about 8-12 inches long
  • Duct tape, cup hook or thumbtack


Tie the string firmly around the pine cone or ornament. Tie silver foil at intervals along the string. Attach the string under the eaves outside above the window. You can use duct tape, a cup hook, a thumbtack – choose what works best for you. That’s it!

Your window is no longer a danger to our feathered friends!

Prairie dogs are like a canary in the coal mine. If their population declines and dies, others will soon follow.
