Lights Out Indy volunteers have been monitoring downtown Indianapolis streets since Spring 2009. As of year-end 2012, there have been a total of 1,299 bird strike observations involving more than 80 species. Many of the birds are found dead, but some are still alive. Injured birds are assessed to determine if they can be released or if they need to be taken to a licensed wildlife rehabber. Dead birds in good condition are salvaged and donated to the Indiana State Museum or local nature centers. Below is the list of bird species that have been involved in bird strikes in Indianapolis since 2009.
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Cape May Warbler
