Lets talk birds - and CC windows...

Our 04 Allure, like many other years and models of CC, have the dual pane bronze like window coatings. They provide like a mirror reflection in bright sunlight, offering occupants some added privacy during the day. That is good, and I also think it helps on keeping the coach a bit cooler too(?).

The downside, is that they seem to confuse the heck out of birds. We have probably been hit by birds on these windows, while parked, over 10 times now. Sometimes, the birds just shrug it off and fly away. But, we've had a few that just did not survive the impact.

We like the clear windows, to see the scenery, but would also be willing to sacrifice some clarity of view, in order to put up a visual to help the birds identify that they're not flying thru clear sky!!

Has anyone come up with some form of outside way of marking these side windows?

(Placed it here in CC, but know these same windows are used on other coaches too.)

Then you have the birds that sit on a branch next to the window and repeatedly keep trying to chase the other guy off by flying at him again and again and again.
