Aerial Survey for Raptor Nests


Northwestern Tennessee

Copperhead was contracted to conduct a survey for potential raptor habitat in northwestern Tennessee. Using one of Copperhead’s Cessna 172s, two Copperhead biologists flew for approximately 3 hours and 250 miles over a five-mile survey area searching for raptor nests and assessing the status of any nests found. Two previous known Bald Eagle nest locations were determined to be inactive and one new Bald Eagle nest was discovered. This nest was determined to be active based on the presence of two adults.
