Landscape and birds are an important cause of blocking wind power projects. This paper investigates in the South of France the question of whether birds and wind power can be part of a same landscape and what type of landscape this could compose. The AA. focuse on the attachments that animals or landscape might develop or entice humans to develop. They show that the process by which such a wind power landscape is composed engages birds into successive translations, which ultimately translate bird intelligence in composing with the wind into a quality of the landscape. As a result, such a landscape emerges from a net of relations and has a quality which is not necessarily visually readable: it is accountable to the entities which have been brought into representation through/for its making
