A 9/11 Tribute Snares Migratory Birds

My screenwriter/filmmaker  brother Dan — the recipient of the now-famous letter from Justice Scalia saying “there is no right to secede” — made a one minute film on the annual memorial lights from the World Trade Center site.

And in filming, he noticed that the lights had captured thousands of migratory birds, and put that on film.

Wired Magazine has an article on it today along with the film, now on YouTube: 9/11 Memorial Lights Trap Thousands of Birds

Update (9/15): NPR now also has the video online (without attribution). The video has now been viewed almost 40,000 51,000 68,000+ times. And a direct link is here: Downtown NYC 9.11.10
