New study shows wind turbines don't harm birds

For those who thought they could survive the Long Emergency by standing under windmills and catching dinner, we have bad news. A recent Danish study shows that migrating birds learn quickly to avoid routes that pass through windfarms- less than one percent of the birds get close enough to risk a collision. The birds gave the turbines an even wider berth at night, sticking more closely to the middle of the corridors between turbines. Many avoided the wind farms altogether and found alternate routes. ::New Scientist
