Another easy way to prevent bird impacts is simply to keep your household or apartment lights off from dusk until dawn.Andrew Del-Colle, “Three Ways You Can Help Migrating Birds This Fall,” August, 2018.
I like birds just as much as the next bird lover, but that’s just stupid.
To begin, a spot of editing is in order. An apartment is type of dwelling, just as is a tarpaper shack, double wide, or cave. Household pertains to the people who occupy a dwelling, typically as a family unit. There are many households in apartments. I get it. But it still should have been ‘house’.
Bird impacts is a highfalutin way of saying the birds fly into windows. And of course! No one wants that. And I understand that migrating birds do become disoriented by vast displays of lights. But keeping your dwelling’s lights off from dusk to dawn? You go right ahead and let me know how that plays out with the other members of your household. Idiots.
