Birds will see the white lines as a barrier

Regarding your article, “For the Birds...”, another trick to reduce birds hitting windows is to get a fine-point white marker, available at any craft store like Michael’s or JoAnn’s, and paint straight vertical lines on the inside, 4” apart.

The lines are virtually invisible from the inside looking out, but from the outside, the birds see them as a barrier and avoid the window.

They must be vertical lines, not horizontal, because birds potentially could still hit your window, since they want to glide in between horizontal lines.
