Those with a serious interest in ornithology will want to attend the free general meeting of the Fort Worth Audubon Society 7pm-9pm at the UNT Health Science Center (3500 Camp Bowie Blvd, Everett Hall, Rm 100, @fwas.org). Guest speaker Dr. Tania Homanyoun’s topic is Lights Out, Texas: Safer Skies for Migrating. To help birds safely journey south, the Lights Out, Texas campaign encourages Texans to “turn off or dim lights 11pm-6am each night during migration season thru the end of November. Artificial lights at night can disorient birds, even causing them to crash.” For ways you can help during peak migration — today thru Thu, Oct 29 — visit TX.Audubon.org/UrbanConservation/Lights-Out-Texas. You can also sign up for migration alerts about heavier days at Birdcast.info/Lights-Out.
