USFWS Proposes Amendment to Birds Listed in the Migratory Bird Treaty Act

Note the proposed amendment to the MBTA list.  The USFWS will be taking comments until  July 25, 2011 at their website (Docket No. FWS–R9–MB–2010–0088).

There does not appear to be much controversy here, but mainly changes to incorrect misspelled names, updated taxonomy, and revised range extents, resulting in a total of 1,026 birds listed (net gain of 19 species).
