ABSTRACT Millions of birds are killed annually as a result of collisions with buildings or exhaustion from being disoriented and trapped by intense artificial light (Crawford and Engstrom 2001). The problem is especially pronounced in urban areas, during migration season, and during times when anomalously large amounts of man-made light are emitted at night. Previous research has shown that there is an association between light and bird flight paths at low spatio-temporal resolution (La Sorte et al., 2017) as well as at a very granular spatial resolution during specific temporal events (Van Doren et al., 2017). However, there is a notable lack of research addressing neighborhood-scale flight and death patterns in urban areas. Here we develop statistical and spatial analyses of the relationship between reflectivity as a proxy for migratory birds and photogrammetrically mapped light intensity levels at a high spatio-temporal resolution in Manhattan. From there, we aim to correlate bird death counts at specific buildings to these increased light levels. The findings of this project demonstrate no conclusive positive or negative correlation between reflectivity and building brightness, but do suggest variation at a local scale and clear temporal patterns in aggregate.
