The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) funded the original review through a grant to the Department of Biological Engineering of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). CanWEA provides no support to develop our response nor was it aware of the need to respond before submission of this letter to the journal. In accordance with MIT guidelines, members of CanWEA did not take part in editorial decisions or reviews of the manuscript. Drs McCunney, Mundt, Kaliski, and Dobie have provided testimony in environmental tribunal hearings in Canada and the United States.

The authors report no conflicts of interest.
