Beyond the Window Markers: Check out These Bird-Friendly Organizations
Here at Feather Friendly®, we know that installing your own DIY kit, or connecting with us to create a custom, commercial installation is the best way to keep birds safe from window collisions. However, as we get close to Migratory Bird Day and welcome migratory species back home, there are many ways that you can help protect birds and support biodiversity, too.
So, if you’re ready to take your conservation efforts even further, our amazing partners can help! Today, we’re sharing just a few of the local and national organizations that you can connect with to protect birds at home and in your community. Whether you’re volunteering at an event or participating in one, we know you’re in good wings at these organizations.
