Nesting Bird Surveys

It’s might seem a bit early to start thinking about nesting birds, and that’s precisely why it’s the right time.

Most songbirds won’t start nesting in earnest for a couple months. Preparing a site for development now can help prevent delays in the spring and summer. Before grabbing a chainsaw, it’s worth remembering that some species will start nesting very soon, and that some nests are also protected year-round, whether occupied or not.

It’s also important to review any development permit guidelines or tree protection bylaws to make sure you aren’t unintentionally contravening any land development guidelines.

Navigating Nesting Bird Season

We are now in the full swing of nesting bird season and most jurisdictions require a survey prior to tree or vegetation clearing.

A survey is usually done first thing in the morning in the days preceding the work, or on the day of the work, depending on the extent of the project.

Redcedar Environmental has experienced and trained staff that can assist with your project on short notice.
