Wordless Wednesday…Lights Out
We love watching our backyard birds (and squirrels). Larry and I do what we can to provide food assistance, water, and shelter (not to mention a nursery for mom and dad bluebirds).
We’ve recently had hummingbirds stopping by to help fuel their little bodies for their long flights.
Hummingbirds consume half their body weight in bugs and nectar and feed every 10-15 minutes.
The Lights Out Alerts are to protect the many birds as they migrate south (or north in the spring) from striking structures.
An estimated 365 – 988 million birds die in collisions with buildings annually…
Those in the migratory path are asked to turn off exterior lights from 11 PM to 6 AM and close blinds and curtains to reduce light from interior sources.
