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) can 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 your activities and the nest (including active and alternate nests),
(2) maintain any established landscape buffers, and
(3) if possible, create additional landscape buffers to
screen the new activity from the nest.
These recommendations are valid only for the states of Alabama,
Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi,
North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
