Bald Eagle Survey – Private Developer – Buckeye Lake Area, Perry County, Ohio

Private developer requested a bald eagle survey be performed on an approximate 50-acre forested site adjacent to Buckeye Lake. STONE performed a bald eagle survey and identified one bald eagle nest, with a bald eagle actively residing within the nest. Several smaller nests were identified and dismissed as potential bald eagle nests. Multiple juvenile bald eagles and a second adult bald eagle were also observed within the project area. Deliverables included a summary of field results, figure showing all recorded locations, and voucher photographs of the active bald eagle nest and juvenile bald eagles. Coordination with USFWS was completed to assist the client in staying compliant with the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

I just wanted to reach out to both of you & all of Stone for your outstanding effort, due diligence & professionalism on this project.

I’m certainly no ESA expert, but I was blown away by the detail contained in your report, especially given the tight timeframe that was required for delivery.

Please know that your work at Walnut Grove is very much appreciated by everyone here at POAH.

For the record, I am now a huge fan of Stone Environmental, and I hope we will continue our working relationship well into the future.

Doug Dempsey, POAH
