Re: Bald Eagle in PV?
Following up on this and raising an alarm:
Both the resident and a respected local birder
have confirmed activity in the nest in the last two days.
PG&E intends to cut the tree down by January 15, which is the date California regulations establish as the start of the "critical period" during which timber harvest operations are restricted in the vicinity of nest sites. It's not clear to me that those regulations allow cutting of nest trees even outside the critical period, but it is evidently clear to PG&E and its contractor that they do.
There are not many inland Bald Eagle nests and
if this one is cut down, it is not at all clear what the pair
I hope someone over in the Ukiah region knows who to call to get some clarification and perhaps stop this action.
