What do they have in common. They are all classified as Raptors. One of the hats I wear is that of a Director for South Central Indiana REMC. We are the largest electric coop in Indiana with 30,000 meters. We have started a program to protect these birds from power lines. They are building nests for the Eagles that visit our service area as you can see in the picture they are very high but the nest the Eagle builds is 5 feet in diameter and since they use the same nest each year it can grow to 9 feet and weigh a ton. Their territory is 1 to 2 miles they will eat live or dead as in road kill. They will also build near the river or water. Our service crosses White River several times so there are lots of places to build. On Earth Day we raised our first platform near the White River at Centerton, In. We had an Open House at Bradford Woods that day and our Right A Way employees hung several bird houses on the grounds. The Coop will use retired poles and cross arms to make the platforms. Our Right A Way have always planted grasses and Bluebird houses after clearing the Right A Way.
Also present on Earth Day was a not for profit group from Nashville In http://returntothewild.org. They rehab birds who have been injured. Check out their website also go to http://www.sciremc.com You may find some money saving tips from our website. Please visit
