    All in the name of "GREEN".

    A controversial wind farm proposed near Red Wing, MN, plans to ask for federal permission to legally kill eagles, making it one of the first in the nation to participate in a new federal strategy aimed at managing the often-lethal conflict between birds and turbine blades.

    The West Butte Power Project in Oregon also has a permit.

    I've worked on several windmill farms replacing blades. Unfortunately bird strikes are quite common.

    He'll have the state dept do it for him, then blame Bush and the Reps in Congress

    Likes to shoot, how do you work on those things? My A hole would be so pucker up that high, I wouldn't be able to do anything except put finger indentations on what ever I was holding on to

    From what I've seen, the eagle, hawk, and owl season never closed in North Dakota, I dont think the farmers there got the memo.
