Keeping your curtains or blinds drawn, whenever possible, will cut down on the clarity of reflections, thereby deterring birds from flying into the glass.
Attach a layer of netting in front of windows to catch birds before they reach the glass. The netting will also distract the birds from the glass reflection, keeping them from flying into the windows.
Remove hanging plants from windows. If robins see hanging foliage in a window, it will enhance the notion that they can fly clear through that area.
Move bird feeders away from windows. If you are an avid bird feeder and want to keep attracting robins to your feeders, simply move the feeders back from any windows. This will cut back on the threat robins feel from their own reflections.
Stick adhesive shapes, such as predator birds in flight, on the outside of your windows. Not only does the image break up the glass and distract the birds from their reflections, but it will also create a sense of alarm that deters birds from approaching the glass.
Things You Will Need
- Window blinds
- Window-cling silhouettes
- Netting frame
- Although the above methods may not completely stop birds from crashing into your windows, they should certainly cut back on the number of incidents that occur.
