An energetic group of bird enthusiasts here in Nashville have begun a new organization to be known as BirdSafe Nashville. The group is all about reducing the many threats to bird safety imposed by our human activities.
Their first project is called Lights Out Nashville. As migratory birds fly at night, it has been demonstrated that city lights often cause the birds to be disoriented and to collide with buildings and other structures. Lights out Nashville aims to encourage homeowners and business owners to turn off or turn down the lights during this migratory season.
