Summary

Data are the results of raptor perch surveys conducted monthly from August 2001 - July 2004 along a standardized survey route in the Rangely Oil Field (ROF), northwestern Colorado. Raptors perched on electric distribution poles were identified and counted during these surveys, along with information on pole and landscape attributes. All poles in the ROF were maintained and operated by the Moon lake Electrical Association.

Purpose

The primary goals of the project are to estimate raptor electrocution rates and identify electrocution hazards in the Moon Lake Service Area. This will allow the Moon Lake Electric Association, Inc. to update and refine an existing program for mitigating raptor electrocutions in its service area. A consequence of that program will be a reduction of power line-related mortalities.
