OSU Researcher Trying to Prevent the Deaths of Eagles Hit by Wind Turbines

A 2013 study published in the Wildlife Society Bulletin found that wind turbines kill an estimated 573,000 birds a year in the United States alone, including the once-endangered bald eagle and golden eagles.

That’s why the U.S. Department of Energy is looking for solutions to keep the birds from being struck by the giant blades of the turbines.

Central Oregon Daily’s Eric Lindstrom looks at the work of an Oregon State University researcher who is spending time with the raptors at The High Desert Museum to come up with a solution to this deadly threat.
