Title: Migratory Bird Permits; Authorizing the Incidental Take of Migratory Birds 

This proposed rulemaking action would amend FWS regulations by providing definitions to terms used in the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, as amended (MBTA). The proposed rule would clarify that the MBTA’s prohibitions on taking and killing migratory birds includes foreseeable, direct taking and killing that is incidental to other activities. The proposed rule would also establish authorizations for otherwise prohibited take of migratory birds.
