“Then the (wind turbine) blades strike another bird. And another. And another. And another.”

If you read nothing else today, spend a few moments absorbing this powerful essay by Kenn Kaufman, a “lifelong birder and naturalist, author of the Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America, Lives of North American Birds, and ten other books.”

It would be impossible to select a single comment as representative of this excellent piece, which ultimately is a plea for sanity.  You must simply read the full commentary.  It’s available at this link – “A Long Night’s Journey Into Death

Then consider signing the petition requesting a three-year moratorium on building wind turbines in the most critical areas of stopover habitat in northwest Ohio.

A link to the petition is here.

Many thanks to Jon Boone for drawing our attention to the commentary.
