A: Great Blue Heron and Bald Eagle nest trees include trees that:
a) Have a nest, whether it is active or not
b) Have a nest remnant (any remaining sticks are still visible)
c) Have been previously identified by a Qualified Environmental Professional
where the nest is currently down
d) Have a nest under construction
Note for Great Blue Herons: site specific information on historic heron nest trees in the provincial data base may be unavailable. As such, a Development Permit may not be required under these circumstances provided a QEP assesses the site and the Provincial records, and is unable to determine if the former nest tree(s) exist.
