“The United States has recently moved forward with a proposal to allow the incidental take of migratory birds: the unintentional but predictable killing of birds or destruction of their nests or eggs. This proposal greatly concerns Canada, given the potential negative impacts to our shared migratory bird species. The Government of Canada’s interpretation of the proposed changes to the United States’ Migratory Bird Treaty Act is that they are not consistent with the objectives of the Convention for the Protection of Migratory Birds in the United States and Canada. During the public comment process, Canada also raised concerns with the lack of quantitative analyses to inform this decision and the lack of fulsome consideration of the impacts on birds crossing our borders.”
