Lesson Plans

Countless millions of migratory birds die each year when they fly full tilt into windows. It’s both the reflective and transparent characteristics of glass that make it an invisible killer. Birds see the tree reflected in a window, or the plant beyond the window — not the glass itself. Lights shining from windows are also a fatal attraction for birds migrating at night. To keep birds off this collision course, we must make glass visible to them and break up reflections on the windows of our schools, homes, and other buildings.
