If you have registered as a volunteer nest monitor, and have your Username, you may request to monitor one of the Unassigned nests shown on the map below.
We have more nest monitors than we do available nests, so we ask that you do not monitor more than one nest at this time.
1) CHECK for unassigned nests IN OUR DATABASE
Below is a map created by the Maryland Bird Conservation Partnership showing nests that are actively monitored through our Bald Eagle Nest Monitoring Program. Unassigned nests are shown as a Green eagle icon, or a Blue eagle icon if the nest is only accessible by water via a canoe or kayak. Click the square icon with the arrow, to the left of the map heading "MBCP Bald Eagle Nest Monitoring Program Map (Public)" to toggle the map legends.
Inquiries concerning regulatory issues related to Bald Eagle nests should be directed to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Migratory Bird Permit Office, (413) 253-8643. To report a wildlife crime against a Bald Eagle, call 1-844-FWS-TIPS (1-844-397-8477).
** If you already monitor a nest, please let a monitor without a nest request one of the unassigned nests. **
