The Center for Conservation Biology (CCB) conducted a single aerial survey to identify bald eagle and osprey nests within the immediate vicinity of the current power line project between Eaton’s Ferry and the Carolina sub-station, near Roanoke Rapids, NC. Efforts were made to identify all bald eagle nests in the immediate vicinity of the power line right-of-way, with particular emphasis on nests that have management buffer overlaps with project boundaries and osprey nests that occur on Dominion Power structures. In addition to the nest survey, efforts were made to identify private structures that encroach upon Dominion’s right-of-way.
