Three of our readers have recently written to tell us about their Tundra Swan sightings.

Industrial Wind Turbines
by: John Bowden

We see the Tundra Swans in our area south of Dunnville, Ontario, every spring. They often spend 3 or 4 days eating in the corn and soy bean fields before they move on.

What effect are all of the proposed industrial wind turbines going to have on the Swans? These turbines are scheduled to be constructed along the north side of Lake Erie directly in the migration path of the Swans as they head to their next stop in Long Point.

Will they have to change their migration route to avoid the turbines? Will a number of them be killed each year by coming into contact with the turbines?

Has the Premier of Ontario considered this, or is he more interested in trying to establish some kind of noble legacy as the man who brought so-called green energy to Ontario?
