I’m back to cutting new silhouettes by hand until we see which designs earn their way to being printed in quantity. This is a new material that I found. It still has a backing sheet and comes in a sleeve for easy storage when not in use. The difference is that the dark, smoky vinyl is translucent. If you look closely, you can see the scenery beyond the window showing through ever so slightly. We started making these silhouettes to deter birds from flying into windows but they could as easily be seen as purely decorative. If you are intrigued and would like to order or learn more, please visit my Etsy Shop.
I really like these. if I get any $$ for Christmas, I’ll treat myself. 😉
Thanks, Beth…that means a lot to me.
It may be purely a coincidence but I wanted to let you know that I had a visit from a hawk this week. It’s unusual for one to set down so close to our house and I noticed that this one swooped down very close to the window displaying your anti-bird strike decal. It occurred to me that he may have been attracted by the decal, at least at first. He hung out on our mimosa tree – until I annoyed him trying to get a few photographs.
We were aiming for accuracy, but that is ridiculous. Mind if I post your comment to Facebook?
but not cuddly
How cool that you make these, Rickii! Just the fact that it’s the silhouette of a cat would keep me at bay if I were a bird!
That’s the plan!
I wonder what Mickey and Rosie would think cats on the windows ?
Sami pays no attention, but she is old.
not a problem here yet
but in Porterville we often had to rescue stunned birds.
The ones we found were beyond rescue. I’m told that even those who recover and fly away often die later from trauma and/or wounds.
