If your cat killed a bird or one flew into a wall of your house and died, you'd be mighty surprised if a federal prosecutor showed up and said he was putting you in jail for that.

Wow look at the orginal article it appeared on a very biased source News Corp's WSJ , and was repeated by another one CBN. Seriously anyone defending the Oil Industry has never been to a drilling site in their lives. I suspect the attacks on the Windmills is a little inflated as well, and is based upon estimates as if all the recent advnces in tower lighting have not been made. The newer lights as well as several other factors have significantly reduced bird deaths. Still more neds to be done, but nopne ever goes into a thriving Business District and looks at all the dead birds who have died from flying into those shiny mirror glassed buildings that have become so popular.

The Cellular industry experienced thw same attacks years ago until the factual data ahowed thw shiny nuildings killed many times more birds. Thw newer lights being used on newer structures, and retro fitted onto older ones are much more visible to birds. This was never taken into account before since the older lughts were for pilots.

Just a factual update that this story failed to cover given it was not news, but commentary.
