A couple of months ago, Keith Schneider of the
Michigan Land Use Institute wrote about the proliferation
of communication towers brought about by mobile
wireless communication systems, and the subsequent
impact on the landscape, in an OpEd in the New York Times.

Now comes news from ornithological organizations that
such towers, and towers which will be erected to set up
high definition digital television, are causing large numbers of
migratory bird kills.

Here is a map showing the extent of the existing communication
tower network in the state of Michigan and links to information
about this problem.
