        Dear Eagle Watch Volunteers,

        Barring any last minute challenges, the bald eagle will be removed
        from the Endangered Species List on June 29, 2007. Once the birds are
        delisted, they will be protected primarily by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. The state is also planning to remove the eagle from the Imperiled Species List, with an anticipated delisting in December.

        As EagleWatch volunteers, your help will be needed more than ever once delisting occurs, because we simply don�t know what to expect. There is likely to be a dramatic increase in requests for building permits near nesting territories, and we also anticipate more violations due to the public lack of knowledge about continuing protection. Please take photos of your nests(s) if you haven�t already, and send them to me so they will be in the nest file.

        The state�s draft bald eagle management plan can be found at www.myfwc.com Public comments on the plan are being accepted until July 2, 2007. Written comments should be addressed to Bald Eagle Management Plan, 1239 S.W. 10th Street, Ocala, Florida 34474-2797, or submitted to eagle_plan@.... The federal delisting plan can be found at www.fws.gov, and on June 5, 2007, the Service will open a 90-day public comment period on a proposal to create a permit program to authorize limited �take� of bald and golden eagles where the take is associated with, and not the purpose of, otherwise lawful activities. The proposed rulemaking also contains proposed provisions to extend Eagle Act authorizations to persons authorized to take bald eagles under an ESA permit. In addition, the proposed permit would establish provisions to remove eagle nests in rare cases where their location poses a risk to human safety or to the eagles themselves, for example, in close proximity to an airport
        runway. Comments on the proposed managed take permit must be received by September 4, 2007. Comments may be sent by mail to the Division of Migratory Bird Management, Attn: RIN 1018-AV11, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 4401 N. Fairfax Drive, MBSP-4107, Arlington, Virginia 22203. Audubon will be commenting on both the state and federal plans one last time before they are adopted.
        Please contact me if you have any questions. You will be receiving your certificates and end of year summaries later this summer, along with my tentative schedule of programs and workshops.
        Thanks, and have a wonderful summer,
        Lynda
        Lynda White, EagleWatch Coordinator
