BBC - Earth News - Wind turbines wrong colour for wildlife
A study has revealed that a wind turbine's colour affects how many insects it attracts, shedding more light on why the turbines occasionally kill bats and birds. Scientists say that turbines, most commonly painted white or grey, draw in insects. These then lure bats and birds - as they pursue their prey - into the path of the turbine blades.
Support for the idea comes from another study showing that bats are most often killed by turbines at night and in summer, when insects are most abundant.

Airplanes "murder" birds all the time too.
Shit, my Trailblazer SS took out a crow once too.
And I just "murdered" a chicken a couple days ago. It was tasty! (SERE is like #3 of PITA's shit list)

I wonder what they will say when I've "murdered" Bambi'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

I bet the foxes at the base of the wind turbines appreciate the catered meals.

Bah humbug to wind turbines! Knock them all down and build something sensible, like a nuclear power station. At least that way the wildlife won't die. They may glow in the dark, but the road kill will light the highways for free.To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

It's not until you look at an Ant through a magnifying glass on a sunny day, that you realise just how often they burst into flames for no reason!
