Eagles are large birds that pose a threat to a multitude of industries. Removing bald eagles can be difficult, as they are protected birds under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act. The most efficient way to keep eagles away is to use a Birdzoff eagle deterrent system.
What do bald eagles look like?
White head and tail. Dark brown body and wings. Weight: 6.5 – 13 pounds Length: 29 – 40”, Wingspan 6’ – 7.5’. Found in all 50 states. Their nest size is between 4-5’ feet wide and 30 – 45” tall, though this can vary depending on the space in which a nest has been built.
Where do bald eagles perch and nest?
Bald eagles tend to nest where they can survey their surroundings. This means they tend to nest in tall trees, transmission and cell towers, and occasionally on cliffs. Bald eagle nests can appear quickly – their nests can be built in a matter of days to a matter of months, while they can be reused for a matter of years.
When their nests are active, bald eagles usually remain in their nests. When nests are inactive, bald eagles perch near their nests, on areas with a high vantage point, or in tall, mature trees.
Why do I need bald eagle deterrents?
Eagles pose a threat in both the electrical and communication industries. Nesting can cause extreme delays in construction and tower maintenance.
Bald eagles are a protected species under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act of 1940, as well as the Migratory Bird Treaty Act in 1918. The removal of a bald eagle nest requires special permits, which can be very difficult to obtain. When a bald eagle nest is active, meaning that there are eggs or chicks, no work can be done on the structure on which their nest is built.
How can I keep bald eagles away?
Eagle deterrent devices should be installed immediately once nests are removed. The Birdzoff Tower Guard system and mesh barriers can be installed to successfully prevent eagles from perching and nesting.
