Raptors—Report nests near electrical power equipment.

Raptor birds sometimes build nests on or near electrical power equipment (power lines, poles, generators, etc.). There is a program where you can report these nests to protect these birds from electrocution.  The program especially wants reports about Harris’ Hawks and Great Horned Owls.  Do not try to rescue or help these birds yourself.
To report nests call: Tucson Electric Power: Telephone:  (520) 623-7711
Arizona Game and Fish Department: Telephone: (520) 628-5376 ext. 4446.  http://www.azgfd.com/w_c/urban_wildlife.shtml
