    Lights Out for Wildlife

    Several major migratory flyways pass through Texas. Every spring and fall, millions of birds pass through the state. Many birds fly at night, but can become disoriented by bright lights. Texans can help solve this problem by turning off non-essential lights late at night during the peak of migratory season.
