Bird-tracking study reveals some migration paths cross areas slated for offshore wind farms
By Scott Dance
If wind farms are built off Maryland's coast, turbines will be spinning in areas where many seabirds cross — but few linger — during annual migrations, according to a bird-tracking study.
Researchers spent the past five years tagging more than 400 birds with tiny transmitters and watching their movements. The exercise has produced the most detailed picture to date of the territories crossed by three common species of seabirds.
