Do you want a New Bald Eagle Nest in Your Area?

An Economical Artificial Pole & Nest for Bald Eagles

We now have built dozens of artificial nests for bald eagles. One hundred percent of the territories we built in hold their nesting eagles or entice them in. Our 3 CAMs in the lower mainland: Delta 2, White Rock and Surrey Reserve, are all nests we have built. These cost about $3500 with climber, lift etc. We charge developers a bit more. When the trees are too small or non existent we have to erect a Pole & Nest. These are much more expensive. Augering the 12 foot (3.5m) hole, getting in a 70+ foot (21m) preserved pole, constructing the aluminum nest and getting it all erected is expensive. In some areas we need a higher pole and the price goes up with it. The above costs do not include travel and HWF consulting time.
