Maňosa, S. 2001. Strategies to identify dangerous electricity pylons for birds. Biodiversity and Conservation 10: 1997–2012, 2001


Description:

Bird electrocution rates in Secanos de Lérida, an important bird area in central Catalonia (northeast Spain), were estimated based on 804 visits to 507 electric pylons between 1995 and 1999. Electrocution caused a minimum of 160 victims on 67 pylons. Victims were corvids (36%), diurnal birds of prey (60%) and owls (4%).

Summary / Notes:

The objective of this paper is to identify the best approach to eradicate bird electrocution in an important bird area of northeast Spain. To do so, the pattern of bird electrocution in the area is analysed and several predictive models are constructed, in order to identify high hazard pylons. On the basis of these models, the performance of several strategies for the allocation of the mitigation actions are compared in terms of the cost-effective reduction of casualties. Key words: birds of prey, Catalonia, conservation, electrocution, Lérida, logistic model, power lines, Spain.
