There were two recent eagle deaths at nearby wind farms. There is an eagle nest with 2 adults and 1 eaglet within 1.2 miles of the Black Rock Wind Farm turbines. USFWS recommended that BRWF complete 2 years of pre-construction eagle surveys. But they have not. The rotor area is 3 times larger than turbines at nearby wind farms, but the BRWF wildlife risk studies used those nearby wind farms as a comparison when predicting avian deaths. The turbines are not comparable and the data submitted in the application is deficient.
SAVE THE EAGLES.
