PROJECT TITLE :
Preventing Bird Electrocutions: Alternative Construction Methods Could Help Birds and Utilities
In December 2011, we visited distribution pole lines in the Thar Desert in western India to assess the electrocution risk to raptors. We have a tendency to inspected 624 concrete poles and found 160 bird carcasses at the pole bases. Although power lines will give positive edges for birds, the trend of using concrete poles with metal crossarms outweighs the benefits. If concrete poles are utilized in raptor habitats, different construction strategies should be substituted, like the use of suspended insulators.
