2015 Yellow-billed Cuckoo Survey Whitlow Ranch Dam, Devils Canyon, and Mineral Creek, Pinal County, Arizona
WestLand conducted survey in 2015 for the yellow-billed cuckoo at four sites in the vicinity of the Resolution Copper 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. The objective was to determine the presence and abundance of YBCU, based on habitat conditions considered most likely to support YBCU, in the vicinity of the Resolution project.
