The Ornithology Department has bird cast alerts about whether migration is high medium or low in your area of the United States.
“Every spring and fall, billions of birds migrate through the U.S., mostly under the cover of darkness. This mass movement of birds must contend with a pervasive but largely unrecognized threat: light pollution. Find out how artificial light endangers migratory birds and learn how you can help with Lights Out .” ~ Retrieved from Cornell University Ornithology – Bird Academy -10-3-2020.

If you love birds, check out the website to sign up to get texts to let you know, when you can help aid the lights out project. Dallas, Houston and Fort Worth area is set up. There maybe other cities that have ‘lights out’. Check your local cities’ birding groups for their possible lights out participation..
Lights at night make their migration flight more difficult. Turning off your lights at night during peak migration times will help.
