The Bird Collision Crisis in North America
The statistics surrounding bird fatalities due to glass collisions are startling. Every year, up to 1 billion birds lose their lives in North America, and this crisis affects not only our natural surroundings but also our homes, cottages, and buildings. In fact, houses and cottages are responsible for an estimated 25.9% of these fatalities, while low and mid-rise buildings contribute to 63.9%, and high-rise buildings cause an estimated 10.2% of bird fatalities.
Why do birds collide with glass? The answer is that the outside of glass is reflective, mirroring the environment around it. Birds don’t perceive glass as a barrier, leading to these tragic accidents.
