Note: Annually, the data sets representing actual scrub-jay urbanized territories and actual sightings are updated based on new data that has been gathered and ground-truthed by United States Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The data sets, which have been downloaded into the search engine, are informational and are designed to approximate where Scrub-jays and Scrub-jay territories exist. The Parcel Identification Number (PID) or the Address search is not a definitive finding on where scrub-jays may be present. If your Parcel Identification Number or Address is entered into the search engine and is documented as being in a known Scrub-jay territory, per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, please contact the United States Fish and Wildlife Service for any possible mitigation responsibility that maybe warranted, if any. Charlotte County has no authority to establish mitigation requirements for impacts related construction within designated Scrub-jay data sets. If the search does not indicate that your property is within updated data set, per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, then the construction permitting process can move forward without federal delay.
