"The floodlights will remain off for the rest of the season, says Bruce LePard, the senior vice president of American National Insurance." Thank you.

Education is part of the answer. Maybe communication too. Send LePard a quick thank you note. I did. The more he and his type receive, the more impact.

For you information. Window collisions are taking out a billion birds a year. It takes 3 billion nesting attempts just to cover this loss not including those lost to feral cats and other mortality. We are losing 4% of our birds per year. Forty percent fewer birds are crossing the Gulf than crossed just 10 years ago. It is obvious to those going afield that the birds are not there. If you are not going to help the birds in this lifetime, what lifetime do you plan to start?
