Welcome to Bird Safe Guelph: Home to the Guelph Bird Safe Window Initiative!
*NOTICE TO ALL WHO ORDERED KITS IN DECEMBER 2020*
Window kits have been mailed! Keep an eye on your mailbox – delivery expected by the end of March! Once you receive your kit, check out the kit instructions here.
Every year in Canada, an estimated 25 million birds fatally collide with windows. Birds cannot see glass, and reflections of trees or sky in glass can confuse birds and make them think they can fly through the glass. Colliding with a window may kill a bird on impact or may stun the bird and leave them vulnerable to predators.
The good news is that YOU can help protect birds at your own home! The Guelph Bird Safe Window Initiative is providing instructions to City of Guelph residents to transform your windows at home to be bird safe! Window transformations are easy to install, and effective at preventing bird collisions. We have more free kits available to Guelph Residents in April 2021! Check out how to get a free kit here.
