Does Green Energy Trump an Endangered Species?

Now this is what you call ironic. Prairie Chicken Mating Dance Threatens Texas Projects (Update1) -
Iberdrola SA and E.ON AG’s turbine dreams for the windswept Texas Panhandle may be stymied by the mating rituals of the lesser prairie chicken.

Wind-power developers such as E.ON are scouring sagebrush and grasslands for the presence of ground-dwelling chickens that could impede turbine construction plans.
I thought how it was all green and everything it wouldn't hit the environment so hard. Guess I was mistaken.

So how's that green energy program coming along? Damn chickens.

Absolutely no "Why did the chicken cross the road jokes?" in the comments. [Hat tip to Jeff at Alphecca]
