Wind turbine fatalities approach a level of concern in a raptor population
Abstract: Mortality from collisions with increasing numbers of wind turbines is a potential hazard to raptor populations, but the actual effects on a population scale have rarely been studied based on field data. We estimated annual collision numbers for Red Kites Milvus milvus in the German federal state of Brandenburg (29,483 km²). A hierarchical model considering carcass persistence rate, searcher efficiency and the probability that a killed animal falls into a searched area was applied to results of carcass searches . . .

Bird losses at wind energy plants in Germany
This table lists all dead birds found at German wind energy plants from Spring 2002 to September 2008. These counts are not the result of regular or rigorous sampling and therefore represent only a very small fraction of the true numbers killed. The author notes that in Brandenburg roughly the same number of dead bats have been found. Download original document: “Bird deaths at wind energy plants in Germany” Complete article »
