The Lights Out Baltimore, Downtown Fatalities photo series might be hard to digest, but it raises an important issue for modern times. Documenting the death of birds by skyscrapers, it shows that buildings need to adopt a better system in order to avoid such unnecessary loss. In fact, there is a rather simple solution, as the title of the series gives away.

Light pollution is often the underlying culprit to these deaths, and so if people turned off the lights in these skyscrapers, a big change can be made. According to Fast Co. Design, "Songbirds use the constellations to guide them as they migrate at night, and bright cities can confuse them." If the images in the Lights Out Baltimore, Downtown Fatalities photo series doesn't make an impact to do so, then nothing will. Stats for Skyscraper-Killed Bird Portraits Trending: This Year & Hot
