Eagles appear to have declined around the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area (APWRA) since the wind farms have been in place, according to a 1990s study by Grainger Hunt, an ecologist with the Predatory Bird Research Group of the University of California at Santa Cruz.
The Center for Biological Diversity says that wind turbines at the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area (APWRA) in California, which is located on a major bird migratory route with high raptor density, "kill more birds of prey than any other wind facility in North America.
Results of the study, contained in a new Energy Commission report, entitled Wind Turbine Effects on Avian Activity, Habitat Use and Mortality, examines data compiled during 1989-1991 from the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, and another wind resource area under development in Solano County.
