On the subject of structures and birds, is there any data on the impact
of wind generators [like the ones at Esperance and Cooper Pedy] on birds
[ie apart from the bleeding obvious, he says in an attempt to ward off
the inevitable punsters]?

I know that some locals were expressing concern that wind generators in
northern Tassie might be a problem for migrating orange-bellied parrots
[ie a solution to a climate change problem possibly causing a
conservation problem].

If the wind generators were to be a problem to the OBPs would a few fake
raptors be a solution?
