Birdwatchers flock to see rare bird, killed by wind turbine

There hasn’t been a sighting of a White-throated Needletail in the United Kingdom for 22 years, so nearly 80 birdwatchers flocked to Scotland this week to get a look, the Telegraph reported. But instead of enjoying the world’s fastest flying bird soaring, they watched it fly into the small blade of a wind turbine and die.


I think the only solution is to ban alternative energy altogether. Agree?

Jesus died for their sins. It would be a waste if they just didn't sin it up. If you ask me, it's almost unchristian if you DON'T eat the kiddies.

I remember having to argue against wind energy once for Debate in high school by using bird deaths. It was pretty embarrassing.

The title made me think the onlookers died. RIP mr bird

Right?

Birdwatching almost went from the lamest pastime to the most brutal.

man, I'm so sad I made this thread now after seeing those shake shack burgers. I would buy an extra just to fuck it while I eat its siblings. then i'd eat that one too.


I am so sorry for my mother's "escapades"...

If that bird hadn't been so god damn stupid none of this would have happened

Stop endangering yourself, animals.

Also 80 people flocking to see a bird....wow. Just wow.
I have nothing important to say

I once told my class in an energy presentation that wind turbines are bad because the sonar frequencies created by the spinning causes a bat's head to explode.

Not my proudest moment, but I got an 80.

I think the only solutin is to ban all forms of energy: let's return to live in the caves! save the birds!!!

I don't think we should care that much about animals behaving stupidly. I'm all vegetarian etc, but a bird flying into a massive object is just... no, that's evolution.

I hit a duck once. It flew right into my truck. It didn't die right away and I was freaking out cause I didn't know what to do. The duck then did some sort of spasm and died. Its mate came walking up to it trying to figure out what was going on. So I picked up the dead duck and took it to a near by pond. I just set it near the water and put it in a dignified, peaceful position.

It wouldn't have been so bad if the ducks mate wasn't there :-\

Actually I looked into it. Ducks keep the same mate for one season. Sometimes they will keep it after that but not always. They are monogamous for a year and then they move on.

What majestic creatures. We ought to learn from them.

I kind of thought you meant 'mate' as in 'friend' as in 'there was another duck there too', but then I looked at your location and figured out what you meant.

Those birds aren't actually that rare, they just live in India. It's like 80 people flocking to see an Indian on vacation in Scotland and he gets hit by a bus.

It will be gone

It was an analogy, but if a birdwatcher sees a Feral Pigeon, they might act differently.

The bird deserves to die if it can't avoid an incredibly slowly rotating wind turbine.

Wind energy sucks **** anyway, why are we trying to use it? Geothermal energy is tens of thousands of times more powerful and it can be used anywhere.
