A report at the first link below says more than 573,000 birds are killed by the country's wind farms each year, including 83,000 hunting birds such as hawks, falcons and eagles.
Each death is federal crime, a charge that the Obama administration has used to prosecute oil companies when birds drown in their waste pits, and power companies when birds are electrocuted by their power lines.
No wind energy company has been prosecuted, even those that repeatedly flout the law.
The Obama administration has given wind farms 30 more years to kill eagles without penalty yet the oil and gas industry continues to be fined on a regular basis.
The Obama administration has never fined or prosecuted a wind farm for killing eagles and other protected bird species, shielding the industry from liability and helping keep the scope of the deaths secret, an Associated Press investigation has found.
