Light Pollution and Birds – Virtual

The Missouri River Bird Observatory is hosting the event, Light Pollution and Birds during its winter webinar series. Artificial light at night effects species in a range of ways, all of which are evident in birds.

Led by Travis Longcore with the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, this virtual talk will describe the effects of light pollution on bird orientation and navigation, daily, monthly and annual rhythms and interspecific interactions.

Options for mitigating these effects will be discussed relative to the variability of bird visual systems and color sensitivity and current lighting technology such as LEDs.

6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
