About 20 bird diverters are now in place along power lines on South Padre Island and the diverters are bright yellow coils which are meant to to drive away ducks and birds from flying into the power lines.

In recent months, a large number of Redhead ducks in the area were flying into the power lines and became injured or die from their injuries. AEP officials finished installing the diverters last week in an effort to cut down on the number of birds killed in the area.
