Inquire with USFWS on Northern Spotted Owl Data Records

If the proposed project is in suitable nesting, roosting, or foraging (NRF) habitat for the northern spotted owl and may affect the northern spotted owl or its habitat, the Project Proponent will contact USFWS to obtain contact information for local USFS, County, or other biologists who can provide a northern spotted owl survey, Activity Center, and habitat suitability data for the project area. An Activity Center represents the “best of detections” such as a nest tree, an area used by roosting pairs or territorial singles, or an area of concentrated nighttime detections. This step will provide baseline information for the project area and will help determine if and where surveys will be done, or if recent surveys have been completed.
