At the Birdsbesafe® company, we obsess about fabric colors and patterns. We've been paying careful attention to which fabrics work best to warn birds since 2008. We've got it "figured out" at this point. How did we figure out the magic formula for bird-warning success?
It involved paying a lot of attention: to shades of colors, patterns of colors, and principles that seemed to emerge over years of selling these. We keep photos of past fabrics, with notes, and we keep track of things like which fabrics were used by cat owners who raved about success, which fabrics were re-ordered many times, and which received less than stellar comments.
Our customers, back a few years ago, would receive free covers to replace sub-par performing ones. We always take care of our customers. And our customers have taken care of us: providing testing of new fabrics, too.
In 2015, we are selling patterns and colors that work very very well. It's not random, and it's not a guessing game. We have principles guiding the fabric choice--and these principles have proven themselves over years and thousands of cats. So, buy with confidence and in the very unlikely scenario where you don't feel happy with the colors' performance, let us know and we'll take care of it.

We really enjoy hearing from you about your successes with Birdsbesafe® collar covers on your cats protecting birds in your yards. Here's just a sampling of some recent emails that we have received! We appreciate every one of them.
Thanks for caring about cats and birds.
"We love your product, it’s amazingly effective…not a single caught bird since we’ve started using the collar covers. Wish all cat owners who let their cats outside knew about these."

Today, in Vermont, we are past our peak foliage color display, and the first snow fell in the White Mountains last night in nearby NH. Many species of birds have already migrated through, on their way to wintering locations to the south.
A few weeks ago, we saw this unidentified Thrush species, with a few other birds, grazing over a period of days as they fed for the long flights to come. And today, there were Dark-eyed Juncos and a small flock of these Sparrows.

UPDATE: Oct. 20. We are seeing slow shipping times for individual packages to Australia and New Zealand. If your tracking shows no change for a week, be reassured your packaging is still traveling towards you, but slowly.
The postage cost is very high, and the shipping times too slow. More news, as we know it.
