Everything in nature adapts. Birds and windmills will be no different, just takes time. Those who adapt will breed and beget more of the same. Just look at how well urbanites have done.

Breedin' and begettin'?  Great, now Wyatt's gone to Bible thumpin'.  

I bred and begat, now I'm adapting to less breedin' and begattin'....not unlike DonQuijote trying to tilt whose windmills only with less bird.

The effects on birds and bats are definetly a problem but I'd be more concerned about the infrasonics (sound waves below around 50Hz). Wind turbines are notorious for producing infrasonics and at a high enough level these can have an adverse affect on some people's health. I think wind turbines are a good thing but I would not live anywhere near one.

Geeze John,

You were right in my backyard. You should have come up and helped me stack wood. They're just starting to fire those windmills up now.

In the last couple of years we've had hundreds of windmills go up within 20 miles of us in North Central Iowa.  When you drive at night, all you see are flashing red lights.  That must be why our pheasant numbers are down.  I haven't heard anything about potential health effects.  I hope maybe they lower sperm count as my lovely wife started talking about having #3 the other night.
