Remember, we're not talking ham towers, we're talking about those
thousand-foot guyed and lighted monsters.|
It still sounds like a lot, but it would be scattered over a few acres of guy field. At night, it would be nearly invisible and to a "bird brain" there couldn't be anything that tall. The big hazard is alarmists applying occasional big tower events to everything taller than a tree.
10,000 at one site in a single night? That number discredits the report, in my opinion. Think of the pile of that many dead birds. Ever find a victim under your tower?
