Feather Friendly® window markers are an easy-to-use scientifically proven solution for preventing bird collisions with glass surfaces. Feather Friendly® window markers are highly effective in making the area visible to birds and preventing deadly collisions while remaining unobtrusive to humans.
An easy to use product that is suitable for all building types, from homes and apartments to condos, or cottages. Our markers provide the best combination of collision avoidance, longevity, appearance and visibility to birds, while still maintaining your home’s outside views and natural light. Feather Friendly® is a simple solution with a meaningful impact that protects our winged friends and supports bird conservation efforts.
When To Use Light Grey
Feather Friendly® Light Grey markers are recommended for most reflective or mirrored areas. In these circumstances, light grey is much more visible on the outside surface of the glass, which makes them more effective at preventing collisions from the first surface side.
When To Use Black
Feather Friendly® Black markers are recommended for most fly-through areas such as clear glass railing systems. In these circumstances, black can be much more visible on both sides of the glass, making them more effective at preventing fly-through collisions

on how to effectively install Feather Friendly® window markers
Description: Although Feather Friendly® Deterrent Markers are made to last, you can easily remove them by following the steps in this video. This process is helpful for renters or owners who need to remove the markers.
Yes! Feather Friendly® is designed to withstand regular window washings for many years. After the initial installation, allow the adhesive to set for 24 hours. Then you can clean with cloth, paper towels, or rubber squeegee, and you can use typical cleaning products for glass, including soap and water and glass cleaners like Windex. However, we recommend against using pressure washers or abrasive cleaners.
As with any product designed to prevent birds hitting glass, Feather Friendly® is far less effective if placed on the inside of the glass. Birds must be able to see the markers in order to avoid them (and thus avoid the glass). Reflections of the sky or nearby vegetation on the glass—as well as glare from sunlight—can make it impossible for birds to see anything that is placed on the inside of a window. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you apply Feather Friendly® to the outside of your window.
Consider hiring a local window washer or handyman to apply Feather Friendly® for you. Window washers will have the equipment needed to access difficult-to-reach windows. Also, the glass should be cleaned before applying Feather Friendly® anyway! Many customers have reported to us that their local window washer was eager to add “installing Feather Friendly®” to their professional skill set.
It depends on how much glass you plan to cover, but generally speaking, an area of glass roughly the size of a sliding glass patio door takes 1-3 hours. The first rows of markers take longer as you are getting used to working with the material, but after a while the application should become easier and faster. Check out this installation video that one of our customers posted on YouTube—it’s a great demonstration of how to apply and will give you an idea of how much time you will need.
