S.F. Weekly examines how windmills, long hailed as a nonpolluting, renewable electricity source, are killing thousands of birds worldwide. Among the victims are red-tailed hawks, American kestrels, turkey vultures assorted owls and federally protected species like Aquila chrysaetos, the golden eagle. It turns out the Bay Area--specifically Altamount Pass in the hills above Livermore--is the windmill bird-death capital of America. (March 29 - April 4, 1995)
