As we shift from summer into fall, it’s important to keep practicing bird friendly behaviors, and to find new, creative ways to spread awareness on bird strikes. In addition to education and resources, FLAP Canada produces its compelling Annual Bird Layout, which is created using the bodies of deceased birds. This rendering is a thought-provoking way to demonstrate...
Did you know? Despite its name, fall migration can occur as early as mid-June, with peak fall migration beginning in mid-August and ending around mid-October. In fact, thinking about migration as a constant process- rather than a semi-annual event- can help citizens recognize the ongoing threats that birds must navigate to survive.
With Fall migration set to soon be underway, we thought we would take some time to re-introduce North America’s Flyways.
According to an article in Sarnia This Week, the total number of bird collisions varies between resident and migratory species. In fact, Feather Friendly® ambassador Brendan Samuels, a PhD student at Western University, emphasized the need to distinguish between resident birds and migratory birds, which are at a much higher risk for bird collisions. And, while there...
Continuous research and development is a significant cornerstone of what we are about here at Feather Friendly®. Therefore, we are very excited to share the newest option in bird conservation technology - Pro DIY. Our Pro DIY will be available for order starting June 1st, 2022. This mini version of our commercial product is an excellent medium-scale option.
Approximately 1 billion birds are lost in North America due to glass collisions every year. Unfortunately, this number will continue to rise unless we start making urban developments that consider wildlife species. Prevention is vital, as birds that succumb to this issue include healthy breeding pairs, nestlings whose survival depends on parents' care and protection,...
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.
Feather Friendly window markers have made their debut in New Zealand with a large-scale bird collision mitigation project.
We are honoured to form partnerships with organizations who demonstrate
an ongoing commitment to bird conservation.
