Window Collisions

Millions of birds die each year in the United States from colliding with windows. This hadout provides information about how to reduce bird collisions with windows.

Some birds simply become stunned as a result of a window collision. If you suspect that a bird has become stunned from hitting the window or wall, put it in a shoebox with holes and a soft towel. Then, carefully open the box and see if the bird can safely fly away.

If the bird is more seriously injured, contact your local wildlife rehabber.  CLICK HERE for a list of Oregon rehabbersCLICK HERE for a list of California rehabbers
