Abstract: 

At the June 20, 2005 meeting of the Black Bear Sub-Group of the Green Mountain National Forest Deerfield Wind Project ("Project"?) wildlife review team, the use of a remote camera to document wildlife movement at or near the existing Searsburg Wind Facility was discussed. Previous focus has been on human activities within the Project bounds and not the potential disturbances resulting from the operation of the Project. The Sub-Group suggested, and accepted, that a remote sensing camera be erected within close proximity of the turbines to record wildlife movement. Each photo frame was time- and date-stamped for correlation to operating records of the existing Searsburg Project. The camera was set up and maintained during the month of October 2005; October is generally the month of highest bear activity in the area because it coincides with beechnut production; it is also above average in terms of wind speed. During the study period, Wind Turbine 7 was available 95% and generating 80% of the time.
