Every year at least 7 million migratory songbirds collide with communications towers in North America. Many agencies manage and utilize a system of communications towers for their operations and several agencies manage land with permits for siting communications towers. Learn about the new FAA lighting recommendations that make possible a 70% reduction in bird collisions while reducing tower lighting and
maintenance costs. These “win-win” tower light changes are simple, fast, and can be applied to both existing and new towers.
