Avian Protection Plan

Raptor Nests

Birds, particularly hawks and osprey, use transmission structures for building large stick nests. This can pose a concern if nest material contacts the electrical phase, which may damage the nest, bird, and power system.

AltaLink aims to accommodate bird nests whenever possible. If there is a nest in a dangerous location, AltaLink will try to relocate it to a safer place by working with Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) and installing a nest platform.
