Subject: [MASSBIRD] Migratory Bird Treaty re-interpreted (weakened)
As birders, we understand that the Migratory Bird Treaty of 1918 provides a vital legal foundation for bird conservation.

As reported by the Washington Post, however, the Department of the Interior has recently re-interpreted (i.e., weakened) the law:

Readers can reach their own conclusions, but contacting oneā~@~Ys representatives to express support for the original interpretation of the law seems, at least to me, the first step that anyone interested in protecting birds should take.
