Regulations Governing Take of Migratory Birds - A Proposed Rule by the Fish and Wildlife Service on 02/03/2020
(This document has a comment period that ends in 47 days. (03/19/2020))

https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/02/03/2020-01771/regulations-governing-take-of-migratory-birds?utm_campaign=subscription+mailing+list&utm_source=federalregister.gov&utm_medium=email

Migratory Bird Permits; Regulations Governing Take of Migratory Birds; Environmental Impact Statement

https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/02/03/2020-01770/migratory-bird-permits-regulations-governing-take-of-migratory-birds-environmental-impact-statement?utm_campaign=subscription+mailing+list&utm_source=federalregister.gov&utm_medium=email

Quote: "Thus, there appears to be no explicit basis in the language or the development of the MBTA for concluding that it was intended to be applied to any and all human activity that causes even unintentional deaths of migratory birds."

IMHO -  Wrong!!
