Project Description

SoCal Gas; NV Energy; BrightSource Energy; Silver State Solar

During the nesting bird season (March 1 to September 15), nesting bird surveys for raptors and all other birds covered under the MBTA were conducted within a 500 foot minimum avoidance buffer for raptors and a 300 foot minimum buffer for passerines birds within a minimum of three days prior to the start of work.

Breeding habitat/nest sites were fenced and/or flagged in all directions in a minimum 100 ft buffer until the nest was inactive, the young have fledged, the young are no longer being fed by the parents, the young have left the area, and the young will no longer be impacted by the project(s).

Monitored work activities occurring near a burrowing owl winter buffer or any active nest buffer in order to monitor burrowing owl and/or nest behaviors that may be impacted by construction activities. Buffers may be enlarged or decreased in size, depending on the nesting behaviors observed.
