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.
