Forconi, P.; Fusari, M.; Appiotti, A. (2012). The impact of a central Apennine wind-farm. Rivista Italiana Di Ornitologia, 83(1-2), 138-140.

We monitored raptors and investigated collision rate of birds with 2 turbines of a central Apennine wind-farm. We detected 1,18/raptors/km2/h. We have not found bird fatalities with turbines. We found 2 carcasses: one Subalpine Warbler, Sylvia cantillans, died by collision with a close communication tower and a Kestrel, Falco tinnunculus, died by electrocution with an MT power-line starting from the communication tower.
