This is FALL migration season!
How can you help the birds avoiding to collide with your windows?
Draw blinds, shades and curtains and Turn Off unnecessary interior lights during this FALL migration season!!
New York is part of the Atlantic Flyway, which many migrating birds use to reach warmer climates. Glass windows are the greatest threat to migratory birds. Please draw blinds, curtains and/or shades in your apartment and lobbies. Please make the windows visible to birds and you will help saving their lives.
Each migration season, twice a year, nearly one third of the bird species found in the United States, diurnal and nocturnal, die by colliding with buildings. Fast fliers like: finches, hummingbirds, swallows etc. are considered diurnal or daytime migrants. The cuckoos, flycatchers, warblers, orioles, waterfowl are nocturnal taking off within an hour of sunset and flying through the night. It is vital that we do all we can to minimize or better eliminate these dangers whenever possible.
Architects around the world have created fantastic bird friendly structures that incorporate little or no exposed glass i.e. New York Times building in NYC (by FX Fowle and Renzo Piano). However, designing a new structure to be bird friendly does not need to add much to the cost of construction. There are many different solutions. Wildlife Freedom Foundation, Inc. will submit some suggestions to both Cornell Tech and Related in order to promote sustainable bird-friendly construction on Roosevelt Island.
An immediate “Quick Fix” for everyone:
ABC BirdTape to make home windows safer for birds. Decals.
It is an easy-to-apply tape that lets birds see glass while letting you see out; it is easily applied.
