Wind Power Development and Raptor Migration in the Central Appalachians  

Author:  | Siting, U.S., Wildlife

This article was published in Hawk Migration Studies, Spring 2005.

“The potential conflict between wind power and raptors is now cdlear, as raptor migration is often concentrated along higher elevations such as ridgetops and the edges of plateau escarpments because of the presence of updrafts from deflected surface winds. … [T]he potential for raptor mortality at new wind power plants in the central Appalachians, a region well known for raptor migration along its many ridges and escarpments, is clear. Despite the USFWS guidance, wind power sites are being proposed in the region on known raptor migration pathways.”
