advertisement below for the stickers called Window Alert is an excellent
and long overdue idea. We would encourage you to buy some if you have
experienced bird strike or have large panes of glass in your home on the
island or the city. They cost only $24.95 – just phone Fenella on

Recently a kaka hit full on into one of our Little Windy Hill
shareholder’s glass windows. It was stunned but survived due to the
efforts of the local vet; time with Karen Walker (Bird Rescue);
specialist care from Halema Jamieson (DoC) and a long recovery period.
Birds often receive a brain injury if they survive at all – and thus
require long periods of recuperation after such a strike. Avoid this and
support the Trust by purchasing these stickers. They are especially
designed for bird eye-sight using their ability to perceive ultra-violet
light. Birds’ eye-sight is up to 12 times better than ours. They have
many more photo-receptive cells (colour vision) and cell-rods per square
millimeter than humans.
