That news is very disturbing!  but I have been hearing about and reading
about designs for bird friendly wind energy.  the following are some links
to such....soft blades, or bladeless.   Audubon seems to be involved with
some of the research.
One wind generating energy source I heard about , but haven't found
research on yet, is when the wind is funneled down a tall empty pole and
the energy is generated underground.
