Bird Survey and Occurrence Record Compilation: Resolution Copper Mining
WestLand was retained to conduct bird surveys within the Resolution Study Area. The Study Area encompasses Apache Leap escarpment, Queen Creek Canyon, Oak Flat, Rancho Rio Creek, Devils Canyon and Mineral Creek. The primary purpose of the surveys was to establish baseline information about bird species in the Study Area. The goals of this report are: 1) to provide a summary of the avian surveys conducted in 2008 and 2009, and 2) to assemble a list of avian species that have been reported in the Study Area, compiled from other surveys and sources as well as from WestLand's data.
