You can try various tactics to scare birds away from your windows to prevent them from injuring themselves or damaging the glass.

Video of the Day
Place a fake owl near the window. Move the fake owl to a new location next to the window every three or four days so that the birds do not catch on that the owl is not real. Place the owl on a windowsill, banister, porch or other sturdy surface.
Purchase owl eyes or owl face decal silhouettes for the window to scare away the birds. Place the decals on the window panel so the birds fly away when they notice the "enemy."
Cut 2 feet of fishing line. Place the fishing line through the center of a CD. Tie the fishing line off into a knot and hang the CD with the excess fishing line. Select a location where the CD can twirl and catch the sunlight to create a flashing light. Cut the fishing line into different lengths to hang the CDs at different levels around the window to scare the birds.
