Following the MBTA’s plain language, MBTA penalties apply to corporations through section 703(a), which makes it “unlawful at any time, by any means or in any manner, to . . . take or . . . kill . . . any migratory bird, any part, nest or eggs of any such bird,” included in the list of migratory birds provided by the FWS.137 The MBTA expressly lists “association, partnership, or corporation” as potentially liable entities, and, on its face, the MBTA is no exception to the typical strict liability nature of federal environmental statutes.

 

Altamont Pass has the highest numbers and rates of bird kills of any wind facility in the world.147 Wind turbines at Altamont Pass kill an estimated 880 to 1,300 birds each year, including up to 116 golden eagles, 300 red tailed hawks, 99 to 380 burrowing owls, and hundreds of other species including falcons, vultures, and other owl species.148 These facts have created discontent among environmental and animal activists.
