Steadily glowing red lights seem to confuse flying birds, causing them to crash into towers or to fly in circles until they drop from exhaustion.

The free-roaming domestic cat kills far more birds, between 1.4 and 3.7 billion birds annually in the lower 48 states.

Yvonne won the prestigious 'Hortt Art Competition Award' at the Museum of Ft.Lauderdale, Florida. This work of art remained on display for several months at the Museum. Over the years Yvonne has entered many competitions winning countless blue ribbons. A trip to Paris, and a stay in Monmarte where she spent time with a few choice artist's changed her views toward her own art work. Art is truly an expression of experience and love to her.
