PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) -
A plan to build a wind turbine along Lake Erie near a well-known spot for migrating birds is worrying environmentalists.
Conservationists say wind turbines are a threat to the birds and the thousands of tourists who come to the area east of Toledo every spring to see the migration.
The News-Herald newspaper (http://ohne.ws/V0Mf16 ) in Port Clinton reports that one and possibly two wind turbines are planned in Ottawa County.
Mark Shieldcastle is research director for the Black Swamp Bird Observatory. He calls the area 1 of the best for migratory birds in the nation.
He says one wind turbine has been in the works for a while, but he just learned another one might be in development.
Tourism officials say bird tourism brings in over $300 million to the county.
