New research released this month says bright lights can lure migrating birds to cities at night, derailing them from their normal southbound path each fall.

The researchers, including University of Delaware professor of Wildlife Ecology Jeff Buler,  used weather radar to measure birds migrating through brightly lit urban night skies over a 7-year period.
