Wind power... is killing birds. Someone could make a mint if they could find a way to get birds to NOT fly into the spinning blades.

I donít have any real big issues with the spinning blades part.

Itís the windscreen that I donít like them hitting.

If the spinning blades are inside the shroud you'd have an issue...

You on the other hand have the option at times to fly around them. Wind turbines have little options.

I was thinking like a deerwhistle type of thing or some type of annoying light?
