These WindWise folks are really doing their homework  Visit their site to show your support.

3:Opinion: Gov. Chris Christie wisely vetoed allowing wind farms on preserved farmlandNJ.com

Industrial wind doesn’t belong anywhere.

4:Oregon wind farm first to ask for permission to harm birds – Sustainable Business Oregon

The key word here is “first.”  The rest have just ignored the US Fish and Wildlife folks and, for the most part, the requirement placed on them by the Endangered Species Act.
