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 field 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 reading and the lecture are about the birds injury due to the glass. The reading provides three supporting ideas in order to describe three solutions to ward off bird injuries. However, the professor says, none of them are effective to prevent the bird injury. He refutes each of the statement of the passage.

First, the article asserts that one sided glass is working to prevent birds from getting injury. But, the narrator denies this idea. Apart from this, he describes that, as the one way glass is like to work as a mirror, birds will get confused to differentiate what is building and what is sky or tree. Moreover, it will fall more in danger as like as regular glass.

Second, the passage states that the embellishments of design on glass is another way to reduce the bird injury. However, the professor refutes this claim. He explains that birds are thinking these colorful design are hole and they tends to go there and exacerbating the injury. Furthermore, it is also bad for the people to use unpainted glass in there house as it contributes the darkness inside their house.

Third, the written excerpt claims that the use of magnetic field in building bring an advantage for the bird. The point is quite incoherent and unconvincing with the lecturer. He explains that birds are normally use the sense of magnetic field in order to travel a long distance journeys such as traveling from cold country to warm country. On the contrary, birds are using their eyes, brightness of the light more to travel a short distance. For this reason, using magnetic field is rather futile to checked bird injury.
