In The Spotlight
Chicago Bird Collision Monitors
"The Chicago Bird Collision Monitors put in hours patrolling the early morning streets of Chicago, collecting and rescuing birds that have struck windows in the one-square mile area that constitutes the Loop. It is both a triumphal and sobering vigil, kept by people who rise at 3:00 in the morning to take an early morning train to arrive before sunrise."
