Window Alert window clings and all other similar products have to be placed on the OUTSIDE of your windows, not inside.  The UV in the cling-ons goes away over time, so you have to replace them every 6-9 months.  Wild Birds Unlimited sells them plus you can get them on-line.  You have to use a good amount of them per window to be effective.  Close your blinds at night so migrating birds aren't attracted to light inside your house.  My vertical blinds also help reduce the reflections birds see of trees and shrubs.  I've seen migrating robins fly directly towards my big picture window and then take a 90 degree turn at the last second due to the Window Alert clings.

Suzanne & all,
I have found a good product for this purpose. Go to the website for -
abirdseyeview.com. They sell square plastic decals that go on the
inside of your windows. They deflect and divert ultraviolet light
outward through the whole window to make it visible to birds. I think
the decals are available at Hoe Depot & Wild Birds Unlimited, or you
can buy them directly online. They are not cheap but last a very long
time and can be repositioned & reused indefinitely.
On our house they are very effective.
