Wind turbines pose threat to birds, too  

Credit:  www.desmoinesregister.com 19 January 2012 ~~

The Des Moines Register editorial board opined recently about the use of lead shot by hunters (“It’s Time Iowa Lets Go of Lead Ammo,” Jan. 9 editorial). There is a valid debate on this subject.

In the spirit of consistency, the Register needs to take a position on bird deaths from wind turbines. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, wind turbines across the country kill 500,000 birds annually.

It has also been reported that the wind farm near Livermore, Calif., has killed an estimated 2,000 raptors and 500 eagles over a four-year period.
