Forget weather forecasts, looking up bird migration forecasts is much more entertaining! BirdCast is a forecast that provides a three-day outlook of how many birds will be flying overhead across the US — and where. The tool, which was developed by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and a handful of other universities, presents real time information. BirdCast can help migrating birds by guiding cities on when to turn off the lights to stop bird deaths due to disorientation caused by city lights.
