Abstract: 

As part of Vision Quest Windelectric's environmental monitoring program at the McBride Lake Wind Farm, we systematically searched for bird and bat carcasses for one year after the wind farm was commissioned. From July 2003 through June 2004, we conducted 69 surveys of the entire farm.

 

The McBride Lake Wind farm is located 10 km south of Fort Macleod in southern Alberta. It comprised 114 turbines during our study. Individual turbines have 3 blades, with a rotor diameter of 47 m, mounted on a 50-m tubular steel tower.
