I look forward to the book and am glad to see it mentions the MBTA. It would be nice to see similar with regard to birds protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act in NC and SC reported to Carolinabirds to use as advocacy. SC’s Congressman, Jeff Duncan, is a leader of the fight against the MBTA. See this link from Audubon:
