Every year many birds die by colliding into bay windows. Even if they are agile enough to avoid obstacles there is nothing they can do as these windows are invisible or reflect the vegetation around them. After a collision, if the bird doesn’t die instantly, its chances of survival are weak as it could have after-effects or be caught by a predator (a cat, a mongoose, etc.) whilst it is on the ground.
If you have bay windows in your home which are potentially dangerous for birds, you can install electrostatic silhouettes (rather than self-adhesive which can leave marks on windows), which serve to make birds aware that there is an obstacle present.
