I am writing in response to the negative responses on birds and wind power. One, in our area there will be a negative impact on the birds that use the wildlife areas and refuges where the turbines are being constructed. Second, these studies and facts come from educated personal within the federal government, state government paid for by the tax payers to get the facts. Both USFWS and ODNR have said there will be impacts on the birds. We are talking millions of birds that flock to the beach ridges along Lake Erie during migration. These protected areas are for the birds since over 300 species can be found in Northern Ohio during migrations. Surely not just for the deer.
