Ducks can help locate turbines  

Credit:  By: Artie Tefft, www2.turnto10.com 21 February 2012 ~~

Ducks are being used to help decide where to place wind turbines.

Biologists from the University Rhode Island and other agencies are tracking the movement and migration patterns of sea ducks to determine future wind farm locations.

Scientists placed satellite transmitters on 26 female eider ducks and are tracking their locations throughout the winter.

Studies in Europe have shown that wind farms can displace birds from their natural habitats.

Data collected will be shared with the government and wind farm developers.
