Audubon’s ‘Lights Out Network’ Helps Protect Birds on Nighttime Migratory Journeys

Chicago and Indianapolis are two cities on Audubon’s “Lights Out Network”.  Audubon says it was in 1999 that they along with partners established the very first Lights Out program in Chicago, and now groups in many other cities including Indy are working to help birds safety navigate their nighttime migratory journeys in the Spring and Fall. The Audubon website says when there’s a lot of exterior lighting on buildings, it disorients the birds, who die after crashing into them. Here is a link for more information on how cities are joining in the effort.
