This is a follow-up to a previous post summarizing the September 2013 issue of Avian Conservation & Ecology that features several articles with the theme of human-related bird mortality in Canada.
A thread on one of the birding groups that I follow was discussing the effect of wind power on birds and one of the contributors pointed to the Barnard on Wind web site (creator: Mike Barnard). More specifically they referenced the article: How significant is bird and bat mortality due to wind turbines? This article, along with its extensive list of references, contains a wealth of information for anyone interested in understanding the effects of wind-power on bird populations. One of the references in Mike’s article is, in fact, the same article on the effects of wind-power that is referenced by the September issue of Avian Conservation &Ecology.
It’s a great and informative site that’s definitely worth a bookmark.
