Republican senator wants to undermine the law that saved the bald eagle

Senate GOP seeks overhaul of Endangered Species Act

http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/395135-senate-gop-seeks-overhaul-of-endangered-species-act

Quote: "This partisan bill is all about politics, at the expense of sound science and the species that depend on it for survival," Jamie Rappaport Clark, president and CEO of Defenders of the Wildlife, said Monday in a statement. "It is a reckless power grab designed to wrest away authority from scientists and wildlife experts and give it to states that lack the resources - and sometimes the political will - needed to save wildlife from extinction."

Requirement to Assess Pesticide Effects on Endangered Species To Be Eliminated in Farm Bill Proposal

https://beyondpesticides.org/dailynewsblog/2018/04/requirement-assess-pesticide-effects-endangered-species-eliminated-farm-bill-proposal/

Quote: "According to the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), the bill, on a party-line vote, will 'completely exempt the use of pesticides from ESA, effectively dooming hundreds of endangered species to extinction and making it legal to kill any endangered species with a pesticide at almost any time.'"

This vile monstrosity passed the House and the Senate!

This Nevada Department of Wildlife photo shows a Nevada game warden displaying the carcasses and wings of two golden eagles and a hawk seized from an Arizona man accused of killing an eagle and illegally possessing raptor parts at the department's office in Elko. A two-year undercover operation in South Dakota has led to indictments against 15 people for illegally trafficking eagles and other migratory birds. The case in federal court in South Dakota offers a rare window into the black market for eagle feathers, parts and handicrafts.

Note: This article startled me, so I researched it over a couple of hours. While it sounds sleazy and like an abuse of the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, this facility apparently obtained the eagle exhibition pictured in the article legally. Of course I don't know if they obtained an exhibition permit, how long they had to wait (the FWS estimates a 2-year wait for Native Americans to receive a whole bird from the National Eagle Repository), or just how this New Jersey representative assisted them in "securing an American Bald Eagle from the National Wildlife Property Repository," which is not the same entity but in the same location as the National Eagle Repository. I suppose it's possible the Property Repository had a confiscated, stuffed eagle lying around and "donated" or loaned it to the facility. The facility also seems to meet the definitions of a facility eligible to receive a whole eagle body, even though a Google search brings up lots of images of the place being used for weddings and not education. I don't think the arboretum received the eagle from the National Eagle Repository or jumped over others waiting in line for a whole eagle body. But I was certainly surprised to learn that someone other than a Native American could possess a bald eagle body! ~T40

Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission to the Office of Management and Budget for Review and Approval; Control and Management of Resident Canada Geese

My opinion: Oh, for crying out loud! FWS wants to know if it takes too much time - they call it "burden hours" - to submit an annual report of how many Canada geese you killed, how many eggs you broke and how many nests you destroyed. It doesn't sound all that hard to ask for and receive permission to "take" Canada geese, so the least they could do is report back as to how many they took. How else can the public know that not just anyone can "take" a bird because they feel like it and then not have to report the taking? Who's accountable? No one. And what happens to the Canada geese population with no controls on the mayhem allowed? And to other protected birds? Permission to kill wildlife has consequences, namely, an annual report. It really is the least you can do!

[This is a very cryptic Federal Register Notice and I'm naturally suspicious of poorly written Notices! My best guess is that it's requesting an extension of existing information collection procedures. If so, there should be no objection, however it's definitely not clear what would happen if this proposal was defeated (i.e., failure to renew reporting requirements).]

Ninth Circuit Holds Forest Service's Failure To Regulate Use Of Lead Ammunition Creates Justiciable Controversy Under RCRA (very novel use of RCRA! 7-year-old case has new life!)

https://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=b97ca941-4268-4c93-bb86-8bf3a62239b7

Quote: "The interest groups alleged that the Forest Service is 'contributing to' the unlawful disposal of solid waste in the national forest by acquiescing to hunters' use of lead ammunition, which can lead to poisoning the hunters' prey and ultimately poisoning scavengers - like the California condor - that feed on carcasses left by hunters."

"The interest groups sought declaratory and injunctive relief to compel the Forest Service to prevent or otherwise regulate the use of lead ammunition in the Kaibab National Forest to alleviate the issue."

UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT - OPINION

http://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2019/05/30/17-15790.pdf

Quote: "For  the  foregoing  reasons,  the  case  is  justiciable.    We  REVERSE the district court's dismissal and REMAND for further proceedings consistent with this opinion."

"[The] Ninth Circuit directed the district court to address...the question of whether a party that owns or manages property on which unlawful disposal occurs may be responsible for 'contributing to' the unlawful disposal under RCRA."

Buying and selling wild-caught hyacinth macaws is illegal. Although it's legal to trade macaws born in captivity, the birds are notoriously difficult to breed. This has created demand for eggs taken from the wild, which are smuggled from South America to Europe more easily than live birds.

Final Rule - Migratory Bird Permits; Regulations for Managing Resident Canada Goose Populations

https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/06/20/2019-13097/migratory-bird-permits-regulations-for-managing-resident-canada-goose-populations?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=subscription+mailing+list&utm_source=federalregister.gov

Quote: "This final rule amends the depredation and control orders to allow destruction of resident Canada goose nests and eggs at any time of year."

(Note: The final rule was justified, in part, due to nesting seasons starting earlier and/or continuing longer than in previous years. In short, they use "climate change" as their main reason for lifting depredation rules, without actually using the term they presumably don't believe is real.)

Quotes: "We propose to remove approximately 2,100 regulations that will have no impact on the administration of hunting and sport fishing within the National Wildlife Refuge System. We also propose to simplify over 2,900 refuge-specific regulations to comply with a Presidential mandate to adhere to plain language standards and to reduce the regulatory burden on the public."

"Through these openings and expansions, we are proposing to open or expand an additional 1,451,131 acres to hunting and sport fishing within the National Wildlife Refuge System and the National Fish Hatchery System."

This August, 2013 photo provided by Point Blue Conservation Science shows a yellow-billed cuckoo, which has made the western United States its breeding ground for many years. But the migratory bird, which otherwise lives in Latin America, has seen its population dwindle in the past few decades because its habitats have been marred. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014, announced that the western population of the yellow-billed cuckoo has been listed as a threatened species and will be protected under the Endangered Species Act. The bird resides in 12 western states and in Mexico and Canada, but Arizona has the largest population. (AP Photo/Point Blue Conservation Science, Mark Dettling)

This is an interview from Tuesday July 23rd 2019 with Marisa Nelson, Assistant Director at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge, Long Island, NY.
Sam - The 35-year-old bald eagle has been part of the refuge for decades, ever since the bird was shot by a hunter. His right wing was amputated. Sammy could no longer fly, and was lovingly cared for by staff, and was a favorite of visitors.
Long Island officials are offering a $15,000 reward for the safe return of Sam.

A federal judge has halted tree-cutting activities on all five national forests in New Mexico and one in Arizona until federal agencies can get a better handle on how to monitor the population of the threatened owl.

Bald eagle provisions: (lame! no prevention at all and only providing money with no action after an eagle take)  >:(

- Removing carrion and increasing landowner education efforts to reduce attractants to bald eagles.
- Carrying out a fatality monitoring and adaptive management program to adjust conservation measures if needed to ensure compliance with the ITP and HCP.
- Providing funding for conservation activities to immediately benefit bald eagles to mitigate for take of bald eagles.
- Providing mitigation funding in advance of take so that mitigation implementation stays ahead of impacts to covered species.

From RRP's FB page:

Raptor Resource Project
Just now

Minnesota friends and followers! The Friends of Scenic and Natural Areas petitioned the Minnesota DNR to prohibit the use of lead ammo and fishing tackle in Minnesota's Scenic and Natural Areas.

The DNR needs to hear from Minnesotans on this issue, especially those who hunt and fish! The deadline to receive comments is November 2nd. You can email them with a letter, but I also encourage you to send a good old US Postal service mail. Representing an organization? Put it on your letterhead! Follow this link for the original petition and mailing information: https://www.snafriends.org/non-toxic-ammunition-tackle-petitio?fbclid=IwAR16UzJvWYZyChVscGlb-LA5gJtDfE7KZIKYyjJbyYz1eiLXyocMMhydq4A. To read more about the effort and who supports it, click here: http://www.startribune.com/minnesota-is-asked-to-ban-lead-in-ammo-fishing-tackle/562293012/?fbclid=IwAR3BNvwsyofLAEo5mg1-NvknERt-1M98q8Dig1nKTt7OPbrZkaSfVl4rgrk.

Here is the letter we sent: https://raptorresource.org/pdf/letterofsupport.pdf?fbclid=IwAR04LBLAiHbMOw879_1ZOFI50Gk_CujHFSNQu2-GQtHRa9SkmsqNhuJh7SQ.

You, our friends and followers, know that lead is bad for bald eagles and other birds. I encourage Minnesota peeps to do some reading about lead's impact on birds in our state before writing. A few links:
Tranel, Molly A.. "Impacts of Lead Ammunition on Wildlife, the Environment, and Human Health--a Literature Review and Implications for Minnesota." (2009): https://www.peregrinefund.org/subsites/conference-lead/PDF/0307%20Tranel.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1lFQ0_rcfCKNgPD9a7xtagHQnrR_FQkqSq5Ns8_YZwfP8rRV8j3dFQH18

Whether or not you live in Minnesota, you can help by hunting and fishing lead-free, networking with others who are concerned about lead, and helping to get the word out about non-toxic alternatives. SOAR and the Raptor Center have been real leaders on this issue. More links:

https://soarraptors.org/hunt-and-fish-lead-free/?fbclid=IwAR1jAPT2Z_6tLiNPRF4K3Cr29nSPNuaLuI15zLtBYiY-ovFiTflpP0Fo3pc

Not anti-hunting or fishing: just anti-lead!

In winter, especially, birds seek open water such as the trout hatchery's retention pond. Tragically, open pits of wastewater and oil are often, mistakenly chosen by birds which is usually a lethal decision. The new MBTA bill would restore protections for wildlife against hazards like this and I urge you to do all you can to ensure the bill's passage. Thank you!

Quoting 'To Kill a Mockingbird,' judge strikes down Trump administration rollback of historic law protecting birds

https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2020/08/11/quoting-kill-mockingbird-judge-struck-down-trumps-rollback-historic-law-protecting-birds/

A federal judge in New York has invalidated rule changes by the Trump administration that allowed individuals and corporations to kill scores of birds as long as they could prove they did not intentionally set out to do so.

In a blistering ruling that cited Harper Lee?s ?To Kill a Mockingbird,? U.S. District Judge Valerie E. Caproni ripped the administration?s interpretation of ?takings? and ?killings? of birds under the century-old Migratory Bird Treaty Act as applying only if the animals are specifically targeted.

Tuesday?s ruling was the latest legal setback for the Trump administration as it has systematically tried to weaken or nullify scores of federal environmental protections. In her decision, Caproni said the administration had gone too far.

?There is nothing in the text of the MBTA that suggests that in order to fall within its prohibition, activity must be directed specifically at birds,? wrote Caproni, who was nominated to the Southern District of New York by President Obama in 2012. ?Nor does the statute prohibit only intentionally killing migratory birds. And it certainly does not say that only ?some? kills are prohibited.?

The changes made by the Trump administration largely benefited oil companies, which have paid most of the fines for violating the act, according to an analysis by the National Audubon Society.

In the administration?s view, even BP, the company responsible for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that led to the deaths of an estimated 1 million birds, would not be liable for punishment under the law. A landowner who destroys endangered owl nests without checking before building a barn or an oil company that fails to cover a tar pit that birds could dive into and be killed could not be held responsible as they have for decades.

Caproni determined that allowing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service police to enforce the act only if officials could prove intent was a violation of the federal Administrative Procedure Act and vacated the changes. In striking down the rule change, she admonished the Interior Department with a passage from ?To Kill a Mockingbird.?

?It is not only a sin to kill a mockingbird, it is also a crime,? Caproni wrote. ?That has been the letter of the law for the past century. But if the Department of the Interior has its way, many mockingbirds and other migratory birds that delight people and support ecosystems throughout the country will be killed without legal consequence.?

Eight state attorneys general challenged the administration when it weakened the act two years ago. Led by then-New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood, the coalition included the top attorneys in Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, California and New Mexico.

The court joined their lawsuit with another challenge filed by the National Audubon Society and numerous other conservation groups, including the Center for Biological Diversity.

?This is a huge victory for birds and it comes at a critical time ? science tells us that we?ve lost 3 billion birds in less than a human lifetime and that two-thirds of North American birds are at risk of extinction due to climate change,? Sarah Greenberger, interim chief conservation officer for the National Audubon Society, said in a statement.

Interior Department spokesman Conner Swanson defended the rule change. ?Today?s opinion undermines a common sense interpretation of the law and runs contrary to recent efforts, shared across the political spectrum, to decriminalize unintentional conduct,? he wrote in an email.

The Trump administration has suffered numerous defeats in its effort to scuttle long-standing environmental protections, calling them onerous requirements that were harming industry and development.

In February, a federal judge in Idaho voided nearly 1 million acres of oil and gas leases on federal lands in the West, echoing an earlier decision in saying the Trump administration was ?arbitrary and capricious? in the way that it limited public input on those leases.

In the weeks leading up to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act rule change in 2018, the administration lost three court cases in three consecutive days. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in 2018 that the Environmental Protection Agency?s move to delay new chemical and safety requirements was ?arbitrary and capricious.?

A day before, a judge on the U.S. District Court in South Carolina reinstated a rule in 26 states limiting the dredging and filling of streams and waterways on the grounds that the EPA had not solicited sufficient public input. Before that, a judge on the U.S. District Court of Montana ordered the State Department to conduct a more extensive environmental impact statement of the Keystone XL?s proposed route through Nebraska.

The 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act was enacted after several species of common birds became extinct. The administration?s action reversed decades of efforts by Republican and Democratic administrations to protect the animals as they navigate the globe. The law covers such disparate birds as eagles, red knots, Canada geese and vultures.

Oil companies were the greatest beneficiaries of the new interpretation, according to an analysis by the Audubon Society. They were responsible for 90 percent of incidental takes prosecuted under the act, resulting in fines of $6,500 per violation. Two disastrous oil spills, the BP Deepwater Horizon spill off Louisiana in 2010 and the Exxon Valdez oil tanker wreck off Alaska in 1989, accounted for 97 percent of the fines, according to the Audubon Society.

In striking down the Interior Department?s rule change, Caproni deferred to how Congress framed the law. ?It shall be unlawful to hunt, take, capture, kill, attempt to take, capture or kill ? by any means whatever ? at any time or in any manner, any migratory bird, included in the terms of the convention between the United States and Great Britain for the protection of migratory birds,? it said.

Caproni granted a motion by the state attorneys and conservationists to vacate the Interior Department?s decision. Attorneys for the Interior Department sought to delay the court?s remedy for undermining the will of Congress when it enacted the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and amended it throughout the years. The judge dismissed that attempt.

?Interior presents no indication that vacating the Opinion will disrupt enforcement or other agency efforts,? she wrote.

?The court?s decision is a ringing victory for conservationists who have fought to sustain the historical interpretation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to protect migratory birds from industrial harms,? Jamie Rappaport Clark, the president and chief executive of Defenders of Wildlife, said in a statement.

Clark called the federal action a wrongheaded move that ?would have left the fate of more than 1,000 species of birds in the hands of industry.?

n this June 2017 photo taken in the ACE Basin region of South Carolina and provided by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, a male black rail offers an insect to a female as part of their courtship behaviors. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared the Eastern black rail a threatened species on Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020, but stopped short of the stronger protections some environmentalists were seeking for the elusive bird now imperiled by habitat destruction, sea level rise, and the increasing frequency and intensity of storms with climate change.

Wright County Conservation Board

ATTENTION WRIGHT COUNTY RESIDENTS AND OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS......On Sunday, Dec. 6th, 2020,  we received a call on a dead BALD EAGLE. The location of the eagle and the proximity to the river bridge suggested that someone had shot the eagle and killed it. The bridge spans the Iowa river and is adjacent to the GROOM WILDLIFE AREA, south of Rowan or NW of Dows. Xrays showed two holes in the head of the eagle. Approximate diameter of a .22 caliber rifle round. The condition of the eagle was such that it was possibly shot on Sat, Dec 5th from the bridge. If you or you know someone that has pertinent information regarding this heinous behavior, please contact the Iowa DNR TIP HOTLINE at 1-800-532-2020 or contact the local sherriff's office or conservation board office. We appreciate any all tips that would help solve this crime.
**********UPDATED INFORMATION**********
In addition to the TIP HOTLINE possible reward money, a private citizen has pledged $100 reward for information that leads to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for this crime.
********REWARD IS NOW OVER $2,000.00******
This reward money would be in addition to any received from a crimestoppers call. We will not collect any pledge money from individuals until we have a confession and/ or conviction in this case.  Thanks to all who have pledged so far for reward money.
*******MORE UPDATED INFORMATION ********
WOW.....WE ARE HUMBLED WITH THE RESPONSES AND OFFERS FOR REWARD MONEY. WE ARE CURRENTLY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO DO THIS THAT IS THE RIGHT WAY. OUR BIGGEST ISSUE IS, AS A GOVERNMENT AGENCY, CAN WE LEGALLY HAVE A VENMO OR PAYPAL AND IF SO WHAT AND HOW WILL THAT WORK FOR AUDIT PURPOSES. #2...WE DON'T WANT TO ACCEPT MONIES AND MAYBE SIT ON OR WORSE YET NEVER PAY IT OUT, SO THEN HOW DO WE GET REFUNDS BACK TO THOSE WHO DONATED.
SO HAVING SAID THAT, WE ARE KEEPING A RUNNING PLEDGE SHEET AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN HAVE SOMETHING SET UP IN A DAY OR SO......THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERNS AND SUPPORT AND WE WILL UPDATE AS WE GET THIS FIGURED OUT.
******PLEDGED REWARD MONIES ARE NOW OVER $3,000.00*******
SOMEONE OUT THERE KNOWS SOMETHING ABOUT THIS CASE, DO THE RIGHT THING AND COME FORWARD SO WE CAN HAVE RESOLUTION TO THIS SENSELESS KILLING OF THE BALD EAGLE.  YOU CAN REMAIN ANNONYMOUS...........THE OFFICE NUMBER FOR THE WRIGHT COUNTY CONSERVATION BOARD  IS 515-532-3185.
***********PLEDGED REWARD IS NOW OVER $4,400.00*************
          WE THOUGHT WE HAD A LEAD BUT DIDN'T PAN OUT.

S. 2577: A bill to amend the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to clarify the treatment of authentic Alaska Native articles of handicraft containing nonedible migratory bird parts, and for other purposes. (IMHO - NO! NO! NO!)

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/117/s2577?utm_campaign=govtrack_email_update&utm_source=govtrack/email_update&utm_medium=email

Text of the proposed additional language that has been introduced during the past 5 Congresses without a vote (emphasis added in red, below):

Section 2 of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (16 U.S.C. 703) is amended by adding at the end the following:
(c)

Clarification for authentic Alaska Native articles of handicraft
(1)

Definitions

In this subsection:
(A)

(i)

In general

(cc)

without the use of any mass copying device.
(ii)

Inclusions

The term authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft includes—
(I)

any weaving, carving, stitching, sewing, lacing, beading, drawing, or painting that meets the criteria described in clause (i); and
(II)

any item, including clothing, described in subclause (I) that combines the techniques described in that subclause.
(2)

Clarification for certain authentic Alaska Native articles of handicraft

Subject to paragraph (3) and notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, nothing in this Act prohibits the possession, offering for sale, sale, offering to barter, barter, offering to purchase, purchase, delivery for shipment, shipment, causing to be shipped or delivered for transportation, transport, causing to be transported, carrying, causing to be carried, or receiving for shipment, transportation, or carriage of any authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft on the basis that the authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft contains a nonedible migratory bird part.
(3)
