It may not be aesthetically pleasing - or perhaps could be with the right design - vertical stripes on glass can deter birds from flying into glass - simply because they realise
their wing span has limits - see attached video - hoping it is of some use/value. Perhaps a pattern glass would help?
and: (I have pasted the relevant information) :)
Anti-reflective Window Films
Antireflective vinyl or polyester films to apply to the exterior of a window to make it visible to birds.
Covers the entire exterior surface of a window, reducing its reflectivity and transparency substantially, while thousands of small perforations in the film allow light to pass through to the interior. Ten percent of the purchase goes to the Fatal Light Awareness Program (FLAP) to help fund research to reduce bird-window collisions. Can be custom-printed.
Window Dressings, Etc.
“Glass art for windows,” these patterned films stick to any smooth surface, decrease glare and UV light, and reduce reflections and the illusion of clear passage. Take care to select a design that offers adequate coverage.
