As we enter the holiday season, in 2020, it is remarkable how very unique 2020 has been around the globe. What remained the same, for us at Birdsbesafe company, was our devotion to helping cat owners save birds!
We are grateful for the continued help from our production partners in the U.S., our suppliers, and other people that we depend on to keep things running smoothly. We are grateful to the cat owners that share our product with their friends on social media or in other ways.
And more than a few times, in the pandemic, we have been grateful to our customers overseas for their patience in receiving their orders--especially when some packages traveled by ship, unexpectedly last spring.
We know everyone has felt the stress of the pandemic in various ways, and we are proud that we were able to keep in stock and keep you supplied in the tricky times of 2020. We have helped you protect more birds than ever before, this year.
As we navigate towards even greater bird conservation goals in 2021, we wish you, your cats, and your local songbirds all great health and good tidings. Thank you for caring about cats and birds!
Shipping Updates, December 12, 2020. We have resumed shipping to Australia and New Zealand. Your packages may travel more slowly than usual. We are also shipping to the UK and Europe. Some pandemic related slow travel times may occur. Looking forward to 2021!

Results of a scientific field study, led by Univ. of Exeter's Dr. Robbie MacDonald, were published in the journal Current Biology this week."Fitting Birdsbesafe collar covers reduced the numbers of birds captured and brought home by 42% but had no discernible effect on mammals."
And, the research paper characterized it: "Birdsbesafe is a colorful collar cover that works as a visual warning, increasing the visibility of cats to potential prey animals with color vision. It exhibited pronounced effectiveness in reducing killing of birds, and more generally, prey with good color vision, including herpetofauna."

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.
