Title: Migratory Bird Permits; Control Order for Introduced Migratory Bird Species in Hawaii (Cattle Egrets and Barn Owls) 

This rule will add a control order to apply to cattle egrets and barn owls, two introduced and invasive migratory bird species in Hawaii. The ranges of both species have expanded to occupy all of the Hawaiian islands. Both species have been found to prey on endemic endangered or threatened species. Without this order, control of the two species would require issuing depredation permits, which would add to State and Federal agency costs for control activities that will benefit listed species.
