Not to be a downer. It makes me furious~! The Wind Farms they tout chew up migrating birds.<quoted text>
Me too! It was six years ago this week that a mind-boggling movement of blackbirds migrated above my Mom's house. I was there that morning and we watched in amazement as a large, wide stream of blackbirds made their way south. As far as the eye could see, birds filled the sky- appearing in the northern horizon, flying right over hers and the neighbors property, and then disappearing into the southern horizon. They just kept coming and coming and coming like a massive cloud. They did not even stop in the surrounding farm fields.
I watched in awe for about an hour before having to leave. Talking to my Mom later that night, she said the flock took all day to pass over. She talks about it to this day and hopes to see that again. We estimate it consisted of 15 million+ blackbirds.
That was an amazing spectacle of nature I will never forget. I am glad we still have the opportunity to witness events like that. It's sad that some people don't appreciate things like that.
THe freaking 'wireless' cell phone towers ly in the direct path of migratnions.
