PROTECT BIRDS FROM STRIKING WINDOWS

Manukau Courier - - GARDENING -

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 in­box@get­grow­ing.co.nz.
