I've had three towers around 200 feet for about fifteen years on Florida's 
Gulf Coast, which is somewhat of a migratory path.  I could probably count on 
both hands how many birds I have found dead around the towers over those years.

On the other hand the hawks are in love with my towers.  They will spend 
hours either at the top or perched on one of the sidearms looking for a meal.  
guess they figure it's a dead tree.  In any case I guess they can see well 
enough and have enough sense to not fly into guy wires. They should tell their 
friends...the species that are kamakazing into towers.
