Barge will track birds through Buzzards Bay 

A barge loaded with equipment that will track bird migration through Buzzards Bay left New Bedford Harbor Tuesday morning. The barge was chartered by Patriot Renewables LLC, which has proposed a 300-megawatt wind farm in the bay.

The company, owned by Boston developer Jay Cashman, has hired bird expert Richard H. Podolsky to perform avian studies in the bay, which are required before the $750 million South Coast Wind project can proceed.

Mr. Podolsky and his team of researchers will conduct radar monitoring from the barge as they study flight patterns of the bay’s diverse bird population, which includes endangered roseate terns, migratory song birds, bats and waterfowl.

The barge will remain in the bay until the end of year, barring severe weather, said Elizabeth Isherwood, spokeswoman for Patriot Renewables.
