Guide to Raptor Remains

Guide to Raptor Remains

In order to address avian fatalities, many utilities now check equipment for potential areas that may pose hazards for birds.  A common method is to look under power lines for dead birds.  Identifying species for these fatalities is important for a number of reasons.  When decomposed carcasses, bone pieces, feathers or pellets are found under electrical structures, it can be difficult to identify the species.  This guide provides a resource for identifying partial remains of selected avian species.

In partnership with PIER, EDM has developed and made available a photographic guide to identifying the remains of selected species of raptors.
