Artificial light at night creates serious challenges to migrating birds, increasing their risk of collision with buildings and glass, a significant cause of death to native birds in the United States. This presentation will introduce this challenging issue and why it matters to bird conservation, focusing on what we’ve learned through research and monitoring efforts. We’ll discuss biological and design factors associated with artificial light at night and bird-building collision and how you can take action in your home and community to make our skies safer for migrating birds.
