    farms, like the Peñascal Wind Farm in South Texas. I hope it works, because it (and others nearby) are built in a major NA bird flyway.

    The wind farm includes an innovative radar system that detects the arrival of large flocks of migratory birds and shuts down the turbines if visibility conditions present a danger.[1]

      thank you.

      I'm glad people are working on this.
      I hope that one day they have something to warn a stray bird or hawk :)
