Blue light attracts nocturnally migrating birds

Xuebing Zhao, Min Zhang, Xianli Che & Fasheng Zou
Light pollution is increasing and artificial light sources have great impacts on animals. For migrating birds, collisions caused by artificial light pollution are a significant source of mortality. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that birds have different visual sensitivities to different colors of light, but few field experiments have compared birds’ responses to light of different wavelengths. We used three monochromatic lights (red, green, and blue) and polychromatic yellow light to study the impact of wavelength...
