Lights Out Chicago
Chicago is the first U.S. city to dim tall building lights to save birds' lives. Through the "Lights Out" program, Chicago's tall buildings have all turned off their decorative lights during spring and fall bird migration, putting them in the forefront of American cities taking action to help birds. In a great display of civic concern and responsibility, all buildings cooperate with the program by dimming their decorative lights for almost 5 months of the year, making 'Lights Out' a real success. Field Museum researchers estimate that the program saves the lives of more than ten thousand migratory landbirds each year.
