Birds and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
Each year migratory birds that are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (50 CFR § 10.12) are needlessly killed or harmed during the course of planned construction, tree trimming, mowing vegetation, and other habitat-altering projects.
Learn more about our shared responsibilities and how to prevent the “take” of birds during tree trimming, brush removal and other improvement projects here.
