HELP AN INJURED BIRD

If you're like the rest of us, it won't be long before you'll encounter a bird that has been injured from a window collision. Leaving this defenseless bird on the ground to recover from its injuries is not recommended. Instead, the bird will need all the help it can get...and this starts with you.

MAKE YOUR HOME SAFE FOR BIRDS

Now that winter is upon us, our bird feeders will be busier than ever. With this increase in activity comes an increase in bird collisions with your home windows. You can help reduce, and in some cases eliminate this threat with easy and inexpensive window treatments. Start by visiting our collision prevention page.
