The migration season is ending but that does not mean that bird awareness should begin to be overlooked. Just because it is not high season does not mean that the steps we take now cannot help the following years. As our class continues we keep brainstorming and combining ideas our group has settled on a list of targets to aim towards. Our LOI partner, Don Gorney, shared with us this list of the 20 tallest buildings in Indy. (The link is shared below.) This gave us a good place to begin since many of these are highly lit at night. The number one on this list is Chase Tower standing 49 floors. This became a focal point. Our goal became to try to gain the following of one of Indianapolis’ major icons and that perhaps that will give us the reputation we need in order for more to follow.

This week I also hope to get in touch with IPL in order to gain some insight to real numbers or costs for nighttime energy usage.
