Thousands of migrating birds are being thrown off by New York City's
brilliant twin beams of light that honor those lost on 9/11/01. In
response, volunteers monitor the skies all night and are able to have the
lights turned off for 20 minutes when too many birds are trapped.  9/11
Survivors are among the volunteers. Amazing story:
