One of the methods used in the U.K. to prevent birds colliding with windows,
particularly large patio types, is to stick a lifesize cut out flight
silhouette, in black, of a raptor to the inside surface.Very often
Sparrowhawk ( Accipiter nisus ) is used but I guess Collared Sparrowhawk
would serve your purposes. Some of the conservation organizations have them
for sale so it's possibly worth a check. Even a home made version is likely
to work as it's the shape not the artistry that counts!!!

Every success
