Orland Reservoir

Orland, California

Foothill Associates’ biologists conducted pre-construction nesting raptor surveys for the Orland Reservoir project in Orland, California. Biologists examined all potential nesting sites for signs of nesting activity (nest construction, adult nest behavior, whitewash, etc.) associated with the reservoir site and construction sites. Surveys for Swainson’s hawk and western burrowing owl were determined per survey protocol guidelines.
