Study by FWS scientists confirms 85 eagle deaths from wind farms
Wind farms have killed at least 85 eagles in nearly a dozen states over the past 15 years, according to a new study by Fish and Wildlife Service scientists. But that tally underestimates, "perhaps substantially," the total number of eagles that have been struck by wind turbines, due to a lack of rigorous monitoring and reporting of eagle deaths, the study said.
