In the September 2013 issue of Waterbirds, the influence of wind turbines on inland shorebirds is documented. In addition, the Waterbirds September issue documents recent advances in the understanding of long-distance migration using satellite and radio geolocators. Technological advances often spawn new discoveries, and this is certainly true of avian migration.
