RM-RN-535: Constructing bald eagle nests with natural materials

Grubb, T. G. 1995. Constructing bald eagle nests with natural materials. Res. Note RM-RN-535. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 8 p.

A technique for using natural materials to build artificial nests for bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and other raptors is detailed. Properly constructed nests are as permanently secured to the nest tree or cliff substrate as any eagle-built nest or humanmade platform. Construction normally requires about three hours and at least two people. This technique is simple, effective, physically and aesthetically unobtrusive, and free of material hassles.

Keywords: bald eagle, Haliaeetus leucocephalus, artificial nests, nest construction
