On Nov. 26, the subheadline of your editorial “Use the Talons” stated that “Justice must crack down on eagle deaths.” No disagreement.
As I understand it, the problem is that raptors are continually scanning the ground, looking for prey. They are not paying attention to potential hazards coming from other directions, until it is too late.
So the goal should be: How can we get the attention of the raptors? Couldn’t wind turbines have whistles or some other noisemakers attached to the ends of the blades, preferably using frequencies out of the range of human hearing? How about flashing lights? (They might look pretty at night, but that’s a value judgment.)
Some reasonable solution should be able to be found.
