Both reading and listening parts offer two opposite views about the provided solutions to prevent glass injuries to birds. While the passage lists three possible solutions for declining these harms; the professor, on the other hand, casts doubt on the accuracy of these solutions and provide some clues to call them into the question.
First of all, the article mentions the one-way glass as a possible responsible solution. According to the text, one-way glass while is translucent from inside is blocked from outside; thus, the birds will consider them as a solid barrier. On the other hand, the lecturer refutes this solution; as he explains, the one-way glass works as the mirror which as hazards as the transparent glasses. As he describes, the birds cannot distinguish the mirror; furthermore, since the mirror reflect the surrounding, birds assume the reflection as the sky and nature and fly through the glass. Therefore, the one-way glass cannot solve harms of accidents with glasses.
Secondly, the text provides the colorful design on glasses as another alternative to hamper these accidents and their injuries, in which some painting such as stripes cover a part of the glass. In this case, while the glass provides sights from inside, the paint will be considered as the barrier from outside. On the contrary, the instructor rejects the accuracy of this solution too. As he claims, since there is some transparent opening between the paintings, birds consider the glass as a wall with small openings, which birds get eager to fly right to. To prevent this event, the opening should be so tiny, in which the inside light would be blocked by the big painting and make the inside darker. So, the colorful design would not stop this hazard too.
Finally, meanwhile, the passage offers the magnetic field as the possible guiding solution for birds to coordinates their flight, the professor, on the other hand, refutes the feasibility of this solution too. Based on his assertation, although birds use the magnetic field during their flight, this usage is merely for long-distance flight, such as migration from a cold region to the warm one. Furthermore, for the short journey, birds use their eyes and brightness of the light. Consequently, the use of a magnetic field for short-distance flight in the city and the prevention of accidents with glasses will be useless.
