Since January 1994, 177 golden eagles have been tagged and monitored through radio signals in a study of the effect of wind turbines on the birds in Altamont Pass co-funded by the Department of Energy (DOE). A population of nesting golden eagles now considered the largest in the US is nesting there, said Grainger Hunt at the recent AWEA conference. Hunt is an ecologist with the Predatory Bird Research Group of the University of California-Santa Cruz. A new report will be released by DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory later this year, he said.
