Orange balls on power lines work for big birds as well as big planes. To deter federally threatened wood storks from flying into power lines on the Millen Bypass Mitigation Site in Jenkins County, Georgia, the Georgia Department of Transportation partnered with Georgia Power to install eight bright-orange fiberglass balls onto the power lines. Minimal labor and about $4,000 have kept wood storks safe on their way to the site's wetland ponds.
