This area was also recently designated part of the Hanford Reach National Monument due to its outstanding biological diversity and integrity.

    Life History and Ecology Understanding bobwhite life history and ecology provides the background for managing this bird. By understand-ing the various aspects of a bobwhite’s life and seasonal habitat needs, it is eas-ier to understand how to manage bob-white habitat. Courtship and Nesting Early spring is a time of dispersal for. Nesting. The male Northern Harrier attracts a female with a roller-coaster display flight, often performing 25 rises and falls. In Washington, these displays can be seen as early as late February. Loose colonies may form, and males may mate with up to five females in a .

    The nesting ecology of northern goshawks (Accipiter gentilis) was studied in the Black Hills of western South Dakota from to Goshawk nest territories were found by broadcasting alarm calls, intensive searches of potential nesting habitat, and visiting historic nesting territories based on information from the USDA Forest Service. Swainson's Hawks (Buteo swainsoni) were studied at occupied nest sites in south-central North Dakota on a 1,km2 intensive study block and on a surrounding study area (16, km2) during three breeding seasons. On the intensive study block the number of occupied nests ranged from 46 in to in Average nest densities were highest on ground moraine ( nest/km2) and on.

The Northern Harrier is distinctive from a long distance away: a slim, long-tailed hawk gliding low over a marsh or grassland, holding its wings in a V-shape and sporting a white patch at the base of its tail. Up close it has an owlish face that helps it hear mice and voles beneath the vegetation.

Each gray-and-white male may mate with several females, which are larger and brown. Breeding northern harriers require large tracts (greater than ha) of habitat. The greatest threats to northern harriers in Region 2 are loss of wetland and grassland habitats, and the effects of habitat fragmentation, primarily from agricultural production.

Northern harriers nest and hunt in moderate to tall vegetation with dense litter cover. The Hanford Site is a decommissioned nuclear production complex operated by the United States federal government on the Columbia River in Benton County in the U.S.

state of site has been known by many names, including Hanford Project, Hanford Works, Hanford Engineer Works and Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Established in as part of the Manhattan Project in Hanford.

Great blue herons, great egrets, black-crowned night-herons, and other water-related birds. Background The northern harrier is a raptor (bird of prey) that breeds throughout much of Canada and the northern US.

This species breeds in wet meadows, grasslands, abandoned fields, and coastal and inland marshes 4,5, Massachusetts, they breed primarily along the coast and are regularly seen in in coastal marshes in the winter nest alone or in loose colonies, and can occasionally.

Since the inception of the U.S. DOE Hanford Site innumerous studies have been conducted on terrestrial wildlife. Onsite contractors have focused their attention on the role of wildlife in the uptake and transport of radionuclides. Graduate students from across the nation have also completed more than 15 theses on wildlife.

For both security and public safety, access was limited and a large buffer zone was maintained around the production facilities. The Hanford Engineer Works was built to create large quantities of plutonium at a roughly square-mile site along the Columbia River in Washington State.

More t workers at Hanford constructed and operated a massive industrial complex to fabricate, test, and irradiate uranium fuel and chemically separate out plutonium. More nests were laid at the southern end of our nesting beach than at the northern end, which is common at sites in the northern hemisphere that vary in latitude (Weishampel et al., ).

Additionally, the nesting season was restricted to the warmest months, although earlier nesting in loggerheads was observed due to sea surface temperature. Patricia A.
