    ... comment as a Washington resident passing thru Idaho this winter:

    As an energy specialist, for the state of WA, I was pleased to see all the renewable energy sources from wind, yet I am also aware of the possible bird kill problems being studied. I have read some of the research and agree that the truth really is that birds run into more tall buildings then wind turbine blades. The Growth has also created jobs and that is good.

    As an artist - I loved the pictures we got from our moving car; blurred was good; Later I pushed the colors on my computers. Now this looks like a watercolor of golden grass with a row of white dancing large birds on the border line.
