Protected Bird Species

Post by joaniebo » Thu Jan 13, 2022 11:02 pm

I copied these from the Migratory Bird Treaty Act Protected Species (10.13 List) MBTA AS OF APRIL 2020

Many of these listed are used on many of the old North Country Spiders and Soft Hackles.

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act makes it illegal for anyone to take, possess, import, export, transport, sell, purchase, barter, or offer for sale, purchase, or barter, any migratory bird, or the parts, nests, or eggs of such a bird except under the terms of a valid permit issued pursuant to Federal regulations. The migratory bird species protected by the Act are listed in 50 CFR 10.13. View more information and the list at Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Wow! A well composed list for sure! It is sad to see all the much loved (by us soft-hackled nuts) species on the list! Now, we locate the substitutes! Thank you for this!
Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

Hi Bob, I've been following the thread on the Bamboo board about Snipe as well. There must be something about the MBTA which excludes birds sourced outside the USA, but I've not seen the actual wording of that exclusion. Steve, from Cookshill, says it is ok to send Common Snipe, Euro Golden Plover, and Common Moorhen (Waterhen) to the USA. Can someone point to the exact part of the code that says USA sourced species only?

Nitpick: Bob, you omitted the M in Magpie.

And yet, Maryland has an open season for coot, mallard, wood ducks, black ducks, and snipe.

Most domestic ducks are mallards.
