Objectives for conducting an eagle survey on Dominion lands are: 1) to document the status, distribution, and success of nesting pairs in association with Project reservoirs; 2) to provide updated information to pertinent parties; and 3) to increase our understanding of Bald Eagle natural history in interior regions of Virginia and North Carolina. Results of the survey are intended to support the information needs of Dominion required by the Roanoke Rapids and Gaston FERC License.
