Wind turbines have not been in Europe for decades, unless your confusing dutch windmills with the current montrosities!!! It is a new thing. Altamont Pass turbines in California have killed many migratory birds of prey. Do a search on any scientific web site. As much as I hate windmills...the new ones are have a much more bird friendly. Not sure what their kill rate is compared to the old turbines. At one time I saw some statistics...google it. Wind Power still sucks. It is not a solution.
