    There are birds that migrate through the Himalayas at 20,000

    Short answer? Evolution.

    The Bar-headed Goose, seen occasionally at over 30,000 feet.

    You can see California Condors perching and flying at Pinnacles National Park (the “newest” national park, previously a national monument since 1908). I’ve seen them flying at Pinnacles and at the Grand Canyon. They seldom flap their wings once they’ve taken off. Maybe they’ll multiply (slowly) in the wild if California successfully bans lead bullets and lead shot.

    A friend of mine was a radio operator on a B-36 years ago. He told me they once observed a vulture at 29,000 feet.

    I believe that recognizing the cleverness of a system capable of adapting itself over time to changing conditions and differing locales is even better engineering – and even more respectful of a Designer – than a simplistic “someone made it that way”.

    If that “designer” is Nature itself then yes. It is environmental factors that dictate change. Not all of the organisms can do that and die out.

    Ted Wade: One early wind farm at one site, and petro-addicts think it is standard. It isn’t. Danish studies show birds avoid the whole array as a single object – except for cormorants and gulls which find the service platforms ideal nesting sites. Skyscrapers kill hundreds of times more birds than windmills – try outlawing them!

    @hippogriff: I know in San Francisco any new buildings (yeah, it’s a little late, but) have to have windows that are more bird-friendly, less reflective if I remember right.
