GLASS AND BIRD COLLISIONS

With migration in full swing now, there is always concern for birds colliding with glass windows.  When birds approach glass, it is important to remember that the reflection they see is a reflection of their habitat and no danger is perceived.

If a bird hits your window, investigate immediately and follow the advice offered by  FLAP (Fatal Light Awareness Program) on their website .....


Our local wildlife rehabilitation facility is The Toronto Wildlife Centre - phone # 416 631 0662 - located in Downsview Park.  It is essential the you phone the hotline number before bringing any injured bird.
 


The City of Toronto now has bird-friendly design guidelines in place for glass in new developments.
