From the Audubon Society of Portland: Fall migration is officially underway – are you shielding your exterior light fixtures and drawing your curtains at night to reduce light pollution?  Many birds migrate after the sun sets, and bright city lights lure them into urban areas and confuse them by obscuring their navigational aids.  Once trapped in the city, birds may hit windows or circle buildings until they collapse from exhaustion.  It’s time to go lights-out, Portland!
