But instead of being treated to a wildlife spectacle they were left with a horror show when it flew into a wind turbine and was killed.

fricking green energy crowd. Wind turbines kill thousands of birds- protected and unprotected species- and no one says shite about it. If that bird would have died anywhere near an oil refinery or drilling rig you'd never hear the end of it.


This!

I believe that there needs to be a complete cease in the use of wind turbines until all of them can be fitted with "bird excluder devices"!

News Alert: In the UK a Popeye's is serving a free wicked chicken dinner to the first lucky customer who says "white-throated needletail".

Birders do. People keep lists of what they see, and there are places to report sightings and whatnot.

As far as the people saying it's misleading, it is kind of a big deal in the birding world to get a rare migrant/transient like that. Instead of going part way around the globe to have a chance to see one...boom! it's a couple hour drive from home.
