A news story on All Things Considered on NPR Radio by Lauren Sommer discusses the toll on wildlife by free-roaming cats, and also describes the science study of Birdsbesafe cat collar covers, in a discussion with Dr. Willson.
A new multi-country study used GPS collars on cat to help establish the hunting cats' roaming patterns. They also collected prey animals returned home by the cat.
The reporter then discusses our own product, the Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover, with Dr. Willson, whose field study (published in 2015) validated our product claims of protecting birds from cats. Birdsbesafe cat collar covers are able to highly reduce the number of birds caught when cats wear them, by making the predatory cat more visible to birds.

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.
