Birds flying over Palm Springs solar farms have had their feathers catch fire from the reflective panels . And of course they fall to the ground . Migrating ducks and other birds must run a gauntlet through these farms and as more huge farms are made, their death toll will rise UNTILL a size limit is imposed on new solar farms.
