Research: greater prairie-chickens pay turbine fields no mind

Nest site selection and nest survival of Greater Prairie-Chickens near a wind energy facility - file:///C:/Users/rue/AppData/Local/Temp/CONDOR-17-51.1.pdf

Grassland bird community and acoustic complexity appear unaffected by proximity to a wind energy facility in the Nebraska Sandhills

https://academic.oup.com/condor/article/119/3/484/5152922?login=true


 A new study shows that the endangered greater prairie-chicken pays little attention to small-scale wind energy infrastructure in choosing nesting sites, and grassland management and proximity to roads play a larger role in whether they survive.
