Subject: [Tweeters] Acoustic Scarecrows: A Humane, Date: Apr 18 23:56:43 2016 From: Devorah the Ornithologist - birdologist at gmail.com
I wrote and published a piece that will greatly interest everyone here, particularly those who are conflicted about the use of green technologies, such as wind and solar, which tend to kill birds and bats.
Acoustic Scarecrows: A Humane, Non-Lethal Way To Reduce Bird Strikes? http://blogs.forbes.com/grrlscientist/?p=2122
This newsstory discusses an innovative technology that uses a non-lethal method to convince birds and wildlife to stay away from airports, and other places where they're not wanted. This "acoustic scarecrow" thereby reduces the risk of a bird or wildlife strike, with an annual savings of millions of dollars, and hundreds of human lives.
