I believe the take permits are much bigger here along the river valleys since so many live there in the vicinity. IIRC, the permits allowed something like 30/year - of course this is based on recollection. I heard the info on the Jason Lewis show, he mentioned it.

“Every year, wind turbines at the Altamont Pass Wind Farm in the Bay Area kill approximately 75 to 100 eagles, according to the Audobon Society. Some are decapitated. Others lose their wings, or are cut in half, suffering a painful and sometimes tortuous death.”

Not sure how reliable the source is, but even the lower estimates are not good.

Here’s another local source: http://www.startribune.com/local/137803668.html - they discuss a MN wind farm considering getting a take permit.

I can’t find take permit numbers because they are all tailored to the wind farm operator’s assessment and requested take allowance based on such.
