Golden Eagle sightings
From the AZ Game & Fish comes this announcement:

Golden Eagle population in the western U.S. is estimated at around 30,000, however, some evidence suggests numbers are declining. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (through the newly established Bald & Golden Eagle Protection Act) are concerned with current information regarding eagle breeding distribution, occupancy, and productivity. To help fill this data gap the AZ G/Fish Dept, in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management, has initiated a 2-year helicopter flight survey to document potential nesting sites throughout the state.

The 2011 surveys concentrated on the western third of Arizona's cliff nesting habitat. These cliff surveys will continue during spring 2012 to cover high priority areas in central and eastern Arizona. In spring of 2013 overall assessments will be conducted. Any information from BIRDERS regarding Golden Eagle nest locations and sightings can help refine the state population estimates. Golden Eagle sighting information during the breeding season (March to July) and potentially active nests can be reported at goldeneagle@azgfd.gov.Confusedtarhit:
