"The death count along the ridgelines of the Bay Area’s Altamount Pass Wind Resource Area has averaged 67 a year for three decades.
The 200ft high turbines, which have been operating since the 1980s, lie in the heart of the grassy canyons that are home to one of the highest densities of nesting golden eagles in the US."

I hate to see this happening. This is a no win for everyone and the only answer I can see to disable the windmills. We need these magnificant birds, they work non stop hunting rodents, snakes and insects. But, the damage may already be irreversable, averaging 67 deaths per year for decades I hope not.
