Bird’s Eye View (4) – 6″ x 6″


In stock

Product Description

We’ve partnered with ArtScape to bring Bird’s Eye View to CatGoods.

  • Package of 4 (four) 6″ x 6″ pieces
  • Easy to apply and remove
  • Installs on the inside of the window

It is estimated that nearly one billion birds are killed annually from Bird-Window Collisions (BWCs).  To make matters worse, many Cats take advantage of these windows to harvest birds that are stunned, but may not be dead.

The solution is a product that emits light where bird vision is sensitive, but human vision is not.  This allows birds to differentiate reflections in windows from actual habitat while remaining aesthetically pleasing to people.

The scientific proof:  Bird’s Eye View absorbs light peaking at 410 nanometers (nm) and reemits the light peaking at 450 nm. Bird vision extends well into the ultraviolet range and is near maximum sensitivity at 450 nm whereas; human vision is only about 7% of maximum sensitivity at 450 nm. To birds, Bird’s Eye View film presents a bright blue glow spreading out in all directions across the window surface disrupting the reflection of habitat but to humans, it appears as a faint white geometric design.  This combination helps bird’s be safe.  Find more details an information on the manufacturers web-site.

The Bird’s Eye View is a perfect complement to the CatBib, further reducing the cats ability to catch and kills birds.

  1. :

    These are nice looking, are easy to stick up, and should save some bird lives! We live in the woods and get a lot of window collisions. We use dark plastic bird silhouette shapes on the windows and they help, but we still get occasional crashes. These Bird’s Eye View films claim to reflect UV light which the birds can see and also to reflect different colors when seen at different angles. That should be a lot better than the dark plastic shapes we use now, and which are hard to see from outside. It will be weeks before I can say whether they are effective at stopping bird collisions, but from the way they look from the outside and from the product maker’s claims about reflections, I do believe they’ll be effective.

    Putting the 6″ x 6″ squares on the windows is easy — just clean the window, spray the window with water (I saw no need to use soap solution as instructed) or dampen the square, and press on the window (inside). They are easy to move around until positioned where you want.

    My photo shows two squares (one in the sunlight and one in the shade) on a large cathedral style window. They look so nice my wife is going to order more for all of our windows that birds hit.
