So with the wind energy moving more into the counties mentioned, it does cause concern for the plight of such a majestic bird, for me anyhow.
Wind power is catching on around here in a big way because of all the farmland.
I completely agree it's a concern and so do turbine companies, which is why they're working on the problem. Newer turbines have already managed to mitigate some of the issues. I looked into a wind turbine for my house to use in conjunction with solar, but for where I live, the costs really outweigh the benefits. It's not suitable everywhere, for sure.

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
