Glass is a favored building material for modern architecture, yet it is also very dangerous for wild birds. Because they often cannot distinguish between glass and open air, millions of birds are harmed every year when they try to fly through glass windows There are, however, several solutions that responsible businesses can use to prevent injuries to birds.

One-Way Glass

One solution is to replace the regular, clear glass with one-way glass that is transparent in only one direction. The occupants of the building can see out, but birds and others cannot see in. If birds cannot see through a window, they will understand that the glass forms a solid barrier and will not try to fly through it.

Colorful Designs

A second solution is to paint colorful lines or other designs on regular window glass. For example, a window could have a design of thin stripes painted over the glass. People would still be able to see through the openings in the design where there is no paint, while birds would see the stripes and thus avoid trying to fly through the glass Architects can be encouraged to include colorful painted patterns on glass as part of the general design of buildings.

Magnetic Field

The third solution is to create an artificial magnetic held to guide birds away from buildings. Humans use an instrument called a magnetic compass to determine directions-either north, south, east, or west. Bird research has shown that birds have a natural ability to sense Earth’s magnetic fields; this ability works just like a compass, and it helps birds navigate in the right direction when they fly. A building in a bird flight path can be equipped with powerful electromagnets that emit magnetic signals that steer birds in a direction away from the building.

The article states that glass is very dangerous for wild birds and provides three solutions that companies can use to prevent injuries to birds. However, the professor explains that these solutions are not effective and refutes each of the author's reasons.

First, the reading claims that one-way glass can be a solution and the people can see out but birds cannot see through it. The professor refutes this point by saying that one-way glass reflects like a mirror and birds will not understand the mirror. He states that the images of trees or other things on the glass can deceive the birds and more injuries will be occurred.

Second, the article posits that colorful stripes can be designed on the glass and so birds would see the stripes and would avoid the glass. However, the professor mentions that birds will see the openings as holes and it will increase the risk rather than decreasing. According to professor, to avoid these holes, small openings can be done but it will make the inside more dark.

Third, the author says that creating a magnetic field will steer birds in a direction away from building. The professor opposes this point by explaining that birds use magnetic strategy for long distance travel like mirgating from cold place to warm place. We also learn that birds use their eyes and light to travel short distance like movement inside in a city. So, this solution will not be effective.
