Step 4. Determining whether your activity is
likely to disturb nesting bald eagles.
Your activity is: (Check your selection
to document your choice)
You have determined that the bald eagle nest (active
or alternate nest) cannot be seen from the project site
and that there is no similar activity
within 660 feet of the nest.
Therefore, to avoid disturbing nesting eagles and
their young, we recommend that you:
(1) maintain a buffer of at least 660 feet (200 meters) between all your activities and the nest (including active and alternate nests), and
(2) maintain established landscape buffers that screen
the activity from the nest.
These recommendations are valid only for the states of Alabama,
Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi,
North Carolina, South Carolina,
