Are we talking about Wyoming? That's a natural nesting ground for Ravens and Eagles. And it was the home of outlaws for awhile cause nobody but mustangs wanted to live there. Save the mustangs how about it? They are killing them by the dozen on sight. There's your endangered species.
But whatever it takes to bash alternative energy and Obama in the same thought.

they compared eagles to texting drivers.
yeah because texting drivers need to look down to hunt for food for their survival.

Well the NSO was never endangered as a result of man-caused acitvities. It was getting eliminated from the evolutionary pool by predators. No man-caused activities were contributing to that since the vast majority of the NSO habitat is on land that was protected from logging/development.

Sorry about giving you facts, salty. I know that you'll be even more confused for the next couple o fhours after reading this.

sw, you are starting to scare me. We are talking about land after it's been strip mined. You are really starting to ramble. Are you on mind altering medication?
