Seasonal patterns of bird and bat collision fatalities at wind turbines

Author:  Lloyd, John; Butryn, Ryan; Pearman-Gillman, Schuyler; and Allison, Taber

Using data pooled from 114 post-construction monitoring studies conducted at wind facilities across the United States, we described seasonal patterns of fatalities among birds and bats.
