Condor Editor Pick - Prairie-Chicken Nests Appear Unaffected by Wind Energy Facility

Recommended Posts

Wind energy development in the Great Plains is increasing, spurring concern about its potential effects on grassland birds, the most rapidly declining avian group in North America.

Instead, roads and livestock grazing remain the most significant threats to its successful reproduction.
