“Lights Out Cleveland” Hopes To Save Migratory Birds With The Flip Of A Light Switch

Every spring and fall, millions of birds migrate over Ohio but they face a threat along their way -- nighttime collisions with brightly lit buildings that leave birds either injured or dead. 

Tim Jasinski's group of volunteers is just one aspect of Lights Out Cleveland -- the other? 

Convincing building owners to flip the switch, overnight.
