Title: Constructing bald eagle nests with natural materials

Author: Grubb, T. G.

Date: 1995

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: 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 human-made 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
