Birdwatchers Gather To See Rare Bird…Which Flies Into A Turbine, Dies

SCOTLAND — 80 birdwatchers got together in Scotland to get a glimpse of a White-throated Needletail: a rare bird that has not been seen in the United Kingdom for 22 years. The birders were there to watch the world’s fastest flying bird, instead they witnessed it fly directly into a wind turbine where it was killed instantly. 

According to Bird Guides’ Josh Jones: “It was seen by birders fly straight into the turbine.”

Suicide has not been ruled out.
