Use a Hawk Picture to Scare Birds Away from Windows

One way to prevent birds from hitting glass is to place a picture or silhouette on the window. Try this printable hawk picture to scare birds.

We hear from readers all the time, asking us what to do about birds flying into windows. It’s a tough one. The only thing you can really do is to break up the reflection in the glass. We’ve heard of readers using everything from wind chimes to streamers to do this, but here at our offices in Wisconsin, we use a simple paper cutout. You can buy window clings and gels to put on your windows to accomplish this as well, but a simple silhouette print works, too. Here’s a printable hawk picture to scare birds that you can use for your own windows. Download your own pdf to print out by clicking on the bird below.
