    Bright lights attract and disorient birds during their night migration, causing fatal collisions. Texas sits at the crossroads of major bird flyways, amplifying risks.

    Skyscrapers and convention centers pose significant threats due to their size and illumination.

    Following tragedies, initiatives like “Lights Out, Texas!” emerged, urging businesses to switch off lights during migration seasons.
