Preventing Bird Collisions Into Glass

With Spring migration approaching, there is an urgent need to prevent birds striking into glass windows in homes around the world. It is estimated that over half a billion birds a year perish as a result of collisions in just the United States. The Rusinow Family Foundation has tried to support efforts to get decals into households of concerned owners. With the terrific support of the Wisconsin Humane Society, recently over 10,000 homes in all 50 states, India, Italy, England Ukraine, Russia, Romania, Lithuania, Guam, Puerto Rico, Tasmania and the Canadian provinces will soon be receiving window decals as a result of this initiative.
