PROTECT BIRDS FROM STRIKING WINDOWS
One garden task I’d rather avoid is burying wood pigeons which have died after crashing into a window. Thousands of birds are killed or seriously injured this way each year. One way to prevent bird strike is to apply decals that reflect ultraviolet light, which birds can see but we can’t. To birds the decals glow brightly, giving warning of an obstruction. They are available from Bird Rescue Whanganui/ Manawatu Trust. Have you got a tried and true method for preventing bird strike at your place? Send your suggestion to email@example.com.
