The Bald Eagle is the national emblem of the United States selected in 1782 by Congress. The Bald Eagle was recently (2007) removed from the Endangered species list by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service but Pennsylvania and New York both list this species as Threatened. The Bald Eagle is protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Act of 1962.
- Bald Eagle Nest Search: Following state and federal protocols, Wildlife Specialist's biologists are qualified to survey for Bald Eagle nests and roost tree locations via helicopter aerial surveys or ground surveys. Bald Eagle nests are massive and are usually placed near large bodies of water. Roost trees are used by migrating eagles and are especially important winter habitat.
- Presence/Absence Surveys: After conducting an aerial nest search of a project area, Wildlife Specialists staff is qualified to identify the presence of Bald Eagles at possible nest locations.
- Comprehensive Reporting: Wildlife Specialists reports contain all necessary information required by the regulatory agencies to evaluate a project. Specifically, we provide detailed habitat descriptions, high quality maps, photographs, and all required data collected at each site.
