Subject: [MASSBIRD] Migratory Bird Treaty Act
I urge all of you to do some research on this pressing topic.  A quick
search yields many sources of information.

Here are two starting points:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2018/04/13/the-trump-administration-officially-clipped-the-wings-of-the-migratory-bird-treaty-act/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.00326dcdc4f8

and a widely circulated letter from former agency leadership:

https://apps.washingtonpost.com/g/documents/national/letter-from-17-former-interior-officials-to-secretary-ryan-zinke-on-new-migratory-bird-treaty-act-policy/2708/


I don't know of any major environmental/conservation organization in the
country not vehemently opposed to these changes.  If any issue should
stir birders towards advocacy, this one is it!

For now, let's focus on the facts in any further discussion of the topic
on massbird.
