2016 Raptor Survey Report Whitlow Ranch Dam, Devils Canyon, and Mineral Creek, Pinal County, Arizona
Passive survey for raptors in 2016 were conducted at four sites in the vicinity of the Resolution Copper Project (the Project), a proposed underground mine and ore processing operation with associated facilities and infrastructure near Superior, Arizona. Survey was conducted at the Whitlow Ranch Dam, two portions of Devils Canyon, and one segment of Mineral Creek, all in Pinal County, Arizona (Survey Transects; Figure 1). The raptor survey coincided with the 2016 Yellow-billed cuckoo (YBCU) survey, which was also conducted in these areas (WestLand 2016a). The objective of the 2016 raptor survey was to document the presence of raptor species in the vicinity of the Project.
