Golden Eagle Wind-Farm Story With a Happier Ending

Young Bald Eagle over McDowell Sonoran Preserve

Young Bald Eagle over McDowell Sonoran Preserve, Scottsdale AZ, November 2013

I first found this story – US firm Duke Energy pays out over wind farm eagle deaths – on the UK raptor site: Raptor Politics.  If you do a search you will find this story widely reported around the world.

The NPR article – Duke Energy Pleads Guilty Over Eagle Deaths At Wind Farms – has a long list of comments which are entertaining to read.

From the Great Falls Tribune (Montana), this article – Duke Energy pleads guilty to killing eagles at wind farms – which has some data on similar fines paid by oil companies in the past for infractions of the migratory bird treaty.
