Earth Calendar for March 7th and 8th
Birds can't see glass and don't understand architectural cues, such as window frames, mullions, and handles, that alert people to the hazard. Experts estimate that up to one billion birds die each year from resulting collisions. A new translucent adhesive tape, which tests show can significantly reduce bird collisions with glass windows and doors is now available to the public and is being sold by the American Bird Conservancy. ABC has also produced Bird-Friendly Building Design, a unique publication that provides planners, architects, designers, bird advocates, local authorities and the general public, with a clear understanding of the nature and magnitude of the threat glass poses to birds and solutions to eliminate this threat.
