Three major issues regarding the impact of transmission lines on birds are addressed: the magnitude of the problem, possible short-term solutions, and future (long-term) approaches. The proceedings include papers on migratory behavior and flight patterns, mitigation through engineering and design modification, studies of Bonneville Power Administration lines, impacts on waterfowl and eagles, transmission line engineering and its relationship to migratory birds, transmission line routes through water habitats, and a case study of the Klamath Basin. References, summaries, and a list of participants are included.
