Do wind generators really kill birds? If so, how serious is the problem? Mick Agrillo wrestles with this problem and does some real homework to put wind power’s effect on birds in perspective.

Over the past 20 years a lot has been written about wind turbines killing birds. The Altamont Pass wind farm in California has become the poster child of “bad wind turbines” and is pointed to again and again as a key case on turbines causing the death of birds and bats.

Mick Sagrillo’s article on birds and turbines is a really good piece to kick off your project homework on the avian issue. Birds are killed by so many things in our world – wind turbines are only one of them. Read this article. It’s amazing that there are any birds left to visit your yard and bird feeders.
