: Federal investigators in California have requested that BrightSource — owner of thermal solar plants — halt the construction of more (and bigger) plants until their impact on wildlife has been further investigated. "Unlike many other solar plants, the Ivanpah plant does not generate energy using photovoltaic solar panels. Instead, it has more than 300,000 mirrors, each the size of a garage door. Together, they cover 1,416 hectares. Each mirror collects and reflects solar rays, focusing and concentrating solar energy from their entire surfaces upward onto three boiler towers, each looming up to 40 stories high. The solar energy heats the water inside the towers to produce steam, which turns turbines that generate enough electricity for 140,000 homes." The concentrated solar energy chars and incinerates the feathers of passing birds. BrightSource estimates about a thousand bird die this way every year, but an environmental group claims the real number is much higher.

An AP story at CBC reported:

: Federal wildlife investigators who visited BrightSource Energy's Ivanpah plant last year and watched as birds burned and fell, reporting an average of one "streamer" every two minutes, are urging California officials to halt the operator's application to build a still-bigger version.

When I told this story to my Dad, he told me of a story he was told when he was visiting a 64 M parabolic dish in Goldstone, California, one of three, globally, used to communicate with Voyager. He gave them an algorithm to synchronize the three so the operation went from requiring 120 people to run, to just two. While visiting their facility, they told him of a time when they turned on the array, which emits microwave radiation, and a flock of geese the happened to be flying nearby all dropped dead.
