Migratory Birds

Trileaf reinforces its reputation as a leading nationwide vendor for migratory bird services by providing accurate scientific based knowledge and targeting effective techniques for conducting migratory bird evaluations. Migratory birds frequently build their nests on towers posing significant issues to the wireless industry. Trileaf works with various state conservation agencies and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to prevent companies in the wireless industry from violating the following Acts:

  • Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA)
  • Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (BGEPA)
  • Endangered Species Act (ESA)

Trileaf utilizes a blanket Migratory Bird Nest Removal Permit in the state of Florida for the removal of “inactive” (non-Bald Eagle) nests; in addition Trileaf assists with other permitting processes that may be required by state and federal agencies. Trileaf also maintains an independent database of known Bald Eagle nest sites ensuring that clients have the best access to current Bald Eagle information and permitting procedures.

Estimated fledge dates are provided in all evaluation reports where eggs or flightless juvenile migratory birds are observed occupying a nest. This information assists carriers in scheduling start dates for construction, maintenance, or modifications.
