How does this help migrating cranes?
The Firefly reflective tag that hangs from the power line, is visible in low light conditions, the time when collisions are most common.
Usually both the BFD and the Firefly are used together at different intervals on the power lines. Flying into hard-to-see power lines is a leading cause of death for migrating Whooping cranes. BFDs will help keep the skies safer for cranes.
flight diverters - These markers increase the
diameter of the power line, making it easier for birds
to see and avoid the lines.
