Golden Eagle fatalities and the continental-scale consequences of local wind-energy generation

Author:  Katzner, Todd; et al.

Abstract. Renewable energy production is expanding rapidly despite mostly unknown environmental effects on wildlife and habitats. We used genetic and stable isotope data collected from Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) killed at the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area (APWRA) in California in demographic models to test hypotheses about the geographic extent and demographic consequences of fatalities caused by renewable energy facilities. Geospatial analyses of δ2H values obtained from feathers showed that ≥25% of these APWRA-killed eagles were recent immigrants to the . . .

Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle Mortalities at Wind Energy Facilities in the Contiguous United States

Author:  Pagel, Joel; et al.

[abstract] Individuals of Haliaeetus leucocephalus and Aquila chrysaetos have been killed in U.S. wind energy installations. We found the number to be at least 85 eagles killed, including 6 individuals of H. leucocephalus and 79 of A. chrysaetos, in 32 wind energy installations in 10 states from 1997 to 30 June 2012. Our results probably underrepresent, perhaps substantially, the numbers of eagles killed in the United States by wind-powered electricity production. Authors’ Note:  Between 30 June 2012 and the time . . .

Repowering Altamont Pass with Smoke and Mirrors

Author:  Wiegand, Jim

A few months back it was disclosed through the media that the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area was repowering with new safer turbines. With their new turbines Altamont was going to drastically reduce the bird mortality rate by 80 percent and raptors by 67 percent. We were led to believe that this major upgrade was going to drastically reduce the number of bird kills in the Altamont region while increasing energy production. This highly publicized move was received as good . . .

FWS letter against Garden Peninsula wind energy development

Author:  Hicks, Scott

… Based on the data currently available, we must once again recommend that you not construct a commercial wind energy development on the Garden Peninsula, because of the high potential for avian mortalities and violations of Federal wildlife laws. Since 2007, our office has expressed significant concerns with this project. Our concerns are based on several factors, including the proximity of the project to a Great Lakes shoreline and Big Bay de Noc, the proximity of the project to adjacent . . .
