New Studies Highlight Energy Development’s Impact on Birds
Ornithology journal The Condor: Ornithological Applications is publishing a Special Section of open access articles highlighting the impact that energy development is having on North America’s bird populations.
Ornithologists have long been aware that lights on skyscrapers and cell towers can disorient migrating birds, but research forthcoming in The Condor: Ornithological Applications demonstrates that even ground-level artificial lights can affect birds passing overhead at night. The study's authors used microphones to record the nocturnal flight calls and discovered that ground-level illumination equivalent to a porch light was enough to alter migrating birds' behavior. Their findings underscore importance of studying the consequences for wildlife when human activities alter the natural environment.
