Stop birds from striking your windows with these beautiful decals. To some, these lovely birds symbolize wisdom (owl), agility (swallow), devotion (cardinal) and pluck (wren). May they bring these attributes and beautiful rainbows into your home.
This set of 8 decals is made of durable, reusable prismatic vinyl. The clear decals change colors with the light and cast rainbows. They stick using static cling and will not leave sticky residue on your windows. The decals in this set range in size from about 4 inches to 7 inches. They are easy to apply using warm water, and every set comes with instructions.
The decals work best for preventing bird strikes when applied to the outside of the window. Place them 2-4 inches apart using enough decals to cover most of the window. They will break up the reflections that confuse the birds. For more information about bird strikes and how to prevent them, please see allaboutbirds.org published by Cornell University. Search for "window strike."
If bird strikes are not a concern, place the decals on the inside of a sunny window. They cast rainbows in bright sun, and they are beautiful in any lighting. The pictures in this listing show the decals in a variety of light conditions. They even cast beautiful projections on window shades and curtains.
To make these decals, I start by sketching the designs. Then I cut them out of black paper by hand and use the cutouts to make digital images. I adjust and clean up the images until they look just right. Then I use a cutting machine to precisely make each decal. I remove the tiny pieces from the lines, letters and textures. Then I pack them by hand to send to you. I enjoy doing this work and hope you love your decals!
