Two bird protection groups joined forces to halt plans to put up a wind turbine on a National Guard Base here in Ohio. Though initial reports and assessments concluded that the wind turbine would not have drastic effects on the bird population, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has suggested that the turbine be turned off during peak migration periods. The bird enthusiasts go to the area to observe several hundred different bird species during migration, including bald eagles. Birds that pass through this area have come from as far and Central and South America and are sometimes headed all the way up to northern Canada. Plans are halted for now and it is unclear what actions will be taken in the future.
