This is a story about a Bald Eagle, likely smashed by a turbine blade, then covered up, that died after days or even weeks of suffering. From content and story design, it is clear that the media and State game officials are lying by omission to protect this fraud of an industry. Instead of mentioning a nearby group of wind turbines as the likely cause of death, this story goes on to tell us how well bald eagles are doing. Even offering this....... "A nest was found at Harriman Reservoir about four years ago. Although Watkin was told there were two eagles spotted in the location this year, he has only seen one there."
But the hidden truth is that these turbines probably killed off these adult bald eagles and their nesting territory was abandoned. Otherwise bald eagles being spotted at Harriman Reservoir would be a common occurrence. With these wind turbines located nearby, the public should never again expect bald eagles to ever survive long enough to nest here again.
Let this be the lesson for the rest of the country......These turbines will slaughter off your eagles and this fact will be hidden from you.
It is a fact and a complete disgrace that in this day, conservation groups, this fraud of an industry and our government officials, routinely lies their asses off for the green energy fraudsters.
If this eagle were not found by this group of people wanting answers, the sad story of this eagle would have been kept quiet and never even hit the media. As it is, most eagles smashed by turbines are found by wind personnel, never reported to the public and are then secretly shipped off the the wind industry's eagle mortuary located in Colorado. Most others like this eagle that made it away from the wind farms, are never found.
This bogus story should have posted an image of the wound on the eagle so the public could better understand what these horrific countryside monsters are doing to our eagles and other precious wildlife species.
In another post I will present a similar situation that took place with a wounded whopping crane, most likely hit by a turbine blade, that died after weeks of suffering.
Image showing some of the local wind turbines, showing a location 2-3 miles from Harriman Reservoir. To the west of these turbines are several other small lakes and ponds holding fish. A short flight for a eagle and any bald eagles living in this habitat would also be using them as a food source.
The Deerfield Wind project shown in the image, consists of 15 2.0MW, 80 meter hub-height wind turbines. The project is notable in that it is the first commercial wind project in the country on land managed by the US Forest Service. Simply put, what this means is blatant collusion and corruption will allow other public lands across the country to be invaded by this industry.
In a perfect world, most of these people would be arrested for their participation in this massive green fraud.
