excerpts from above:
Quote:
The agency would hire people to tag sage grouse in areas where wind farms are proposed and track the birdsí movements to figure out where turbines could be located. Contracts have not yet been awarded.
Quote:
Hagen said reasons for the decline could be drought, invasive plants and encroaching junipers, West Nile virus and human activities.
Quote:
The chicken-size bird, with its long, spiked tail feathers, has been called the spotted owl of the desert because its listing could drastically change what people can do with the land.
