Monitoring endangered birds in New York

Peregrine Falcon monitoring and biological assessment

Project Details

Great Ecology is conducting monitoring activities of the endangered Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) on the Robert Moses Causeway in Suffolk County’s Great South Bay. The client, KiSKA Construction, is conducting repairs to the bridge and is required to monitor the birds for compliance with New York State endangered species regulations. Great Ecology is observing the nesting behaviors of the Falcons, which have historically nested on the bridge, and using behavioral cues to determine the potential effects, if any, of construction activities on the birds’ nesting success
