Wind power development and bird conservation: Are they compatible??

a series of sites along the south shore of Lake Erie, in the northwestern part of the state of Ohio known as the Lake Erie Marsh Region, are stopover areas that support migratory birds and bats. They also contain wind resources of great interest to the wind power industry, which now proposes to build wind turbines nearby. Mark Shieldcastle, Research Director Blackswamp Bird Observatory will discuss cumulative effects of wind turbines on migratory birds and bats (e.g. direct mortality, avoidance, and disturbance to stopover and breeding) and the need for scientific study at a major stopover locations.
