12th Floor View

My leadership pod met County Commissioner Abrams today. Likeable guy and his office has a nice view of downtown West Palm Beach. I wonder what kind of bird list I could get from this vantage point?

I also learned a little more about the new wind farm that's going into the Glades. Supposedly there are detectors that trigger the blades to stop if large bird flocks move through.  I'll be curious to hear how much bird fatality occurs.  Unfortunately, I don't think this venture will be bringing lots of jobs to the area but if the energy production is high and the mortality low, this could be a good project.  Time will tell.
