Simple measures can make wind turbines more bird friendly. New research shows that measures such as painting the rotor blades or towers, using UV-light and smart micro-siting of wind turbines, decreases the risk for bird collisions considerably.&
As more and bigger wind-power plants are built, we expect the number of birds killed by wind turbines to increase. This comes in addition to other challenges, such as habitat loss and degradation.
"Luckily, there are co
