How many decals should I put on a window?
On an average size window, one decal should be enough. A sliding door or a large window may need two or more decals. The number needed will be determined by the placement of your bird feeders, the location of trees and shrubs, the way the light reflects on your windows, and various other factors.
Will the decal stop all bird collisions?
It has been estimated that as many as one billion birds die annually from hitting windows. Many of those are killed by colliding with lighted buildings while migrating at night. In the case of birds around our houses, no method is perfect, as nothing can prevent the panic flights caused by hawks and other predators. If you work in or near buildings that are left lighted at night, please help educate those who influence that decision.
I've Looked Everywhere for These, Finally Found Them Here
I've had these on my windows for years. They've held up well and done their job in preventing bird collisions. But recent nasty weather here in the Northeast finally took its toll on several of them. I've looked everywhere for them, then finally found them at MoreBirds.com. I was disappointed to find that my purchase was limited to only two packs, when I needed several more. Other than that, I'm pleased with my purchase.
Hi Carole, We're glad to hear that the Warning Webs have been helpful for you and the birds! Thank you for pointing out the order limits--this has been corrected if you want to order more!
Window Web Effectiveness
These are really easy to install, without much effect on the view from the window. The crazy bird still tries to fly into the window every once in a while, so the Window Web is not totally effective. However, it's so much better than before. Maybe this bird has hit the window too many times!? But, overall I'm glad I bought it.
Hi Rebecca, We are sorry to hear that one of your birds is still striking your window. Unfortunately, you may be correct--this bird may have permanent brain damage from striking the window so many times. If you find the bird stunned, here is some advice on how to get it to a wildlife rehabilitator: https://morebirds.com/blogs/news/how-to-prevent-window-strikes We hope this information helps!
Web to deter glass crashing birds.
The web was a bonus given to me when I ordered 2 squirrel free feeders. I put it on my front storm door as it has two glass panels they fly into. They are still flying into it. I don’t know if it’s just the lower panel as I only have the decal on the top panel. Not sure if I would buy this. I have two other spots that need something like this.
Hi Carol, We're so sorry to hear you are still having issues with bird strikes! In order for window decals to be effective against window strikes, you'll need to cover the majority of the window with decals, placed less than 4" apart. Of course, no method is 100% effective, so we also recommend turning lights off in your home when you are not using that room.
