Finding the Answer to Environmental Issues with Windmills

In Cleveland, there has been talk of adding wind farms in the middle of Lake Erie. While there many problems, one large one is that many bird migration paths cross the lake, and windmills may kill many birds, which could cause declines in their population. My idea is to tag and track birds that migrate across the lake and place sensors on buoys where the prospective windmills may go to track how many birds would have been hit. This would give developers a way to cheaply move the windmills to a safer location if necessary.
