|Management at a Glance
Two factors most influence an eagle's response to human activity:
- The activity's visibility from the eagle nest and;
- The regular occurrence of similar activities near the nest.
General recommendations to avoid disturbing nesting bald eagles:
- Keep distance between the activity and the nest (distance buffers).
- Maintain forested or natural areas between the activity and the nest tree (landscape buffers).
- Avoid certain activities during the nesting season (timing buffers).
