Wind Turbines And Birds

In this months issue of Birding, a magazine of the American Birding Association, there is an article entitled, Seeking A Bird Solution To Wind Energy; needless to say I read it and it was good.

It writes about establishing guidelines for develooping wind energy…there are good guidlines for birds and wind energy now.

The article writes about placement of wind turbines and my thinking is that therein lies the problem.

Locally they want to put wind turbines at a place called Kevin Rim. This is a known concentration area for the rare Ferugenous hawk.

Montana is a windy state full of locations for wind energy…I have to say…why Kevin Rim?…

The article in Birding was written by Gavin Shire. It provides food for thought.
