Students make bird silhouettes to prevent birds from crashing into windows.
Pollinators are attracted to specific colours and may get confused by man-made objects. When there is a pane of glass in front of them, pollinators see through it and often try to fly right through a window to get to what is behind. Putting something up on a window gives birds a signal to avoid it.
What To Do
- Cut out silhouette.
- Tape silhouette to a window at home or at school.
