See Statement of Work Listed is some information regarding the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. This is not the Act itself. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act protects migratory birds. The original 1918 statute implemented a 1916 Treaty between the U.S. and Great Britain (for Canada) for the protection of migratory birds. Later amendments implemented treaties between the U.S. and Mexico, the U.S. and Japan, and the U.S. and the Soviet Union (now Russia). Specific provisions in the statute include a Federal prohibition to "pursue, hunt, take, capture, kill, attempt to take, capture or kill, possess, offer for sale, sell, offer to purchase, purchase, deliver for shipment, ship, cause to be shipped, deliver for transportation, transport, cause to be transported, carry, or cause to be carried by any means whatever, receive for shipment, transportation or carriage, or export, at any time, or in any manner, any migratory bird, included in the terms of this Convention... for the protection of migratory birds... or any part, nest, or egg of any such bird." (16 U.S.C. 703). This applies to birds included in international conventions between the U.S. and Great Britain, the U.S. and Mexico, the U.S. and Japan, and the U.S. and the Russia. The responsibilities of Federal agencies to protect migratory birds are set forth in Executive Order 13186. US Fish and Wildlife Service is the lead agency for migratory birds. FSA and NRCS are currently working with USFWS to establish an MOU on migratory birds in compliance with EO 13186. The birds protected under this statute are many of our most common species, as well as birds listed as threatened or endangered. View a list of birds protected by the MBTA and other related bird information. To follow the U.S. Fish & Wildlife laws under the Migratroy Bird Treaty the Osprey birds cannon be disturbed during their breeding season from April 1 through September 1.For New Mexico, the nexting period for migratory birds is Reclamation requires proof of certification for the use of any herbicides on Federal property. Federal and states laws have to be followed. EPA is in charge of these requirements currently, certification is required for any vendor who collects money for their services. No restricted chemicals can be applied on Reclamation property unless permission is received from Washington DC. Navajo Dam does not have permission to use restricted chemicals. No protected species of vegetation have been located on these properties. Our environmental group checks this out yearly, as well as other federal agencies and the public. Navajo Dam employees are familiar with protected species. If they are uncertain if any vegetation or bird or animal is protected, they check with our environmental group. There is really no need to include a list. No vegetation is allowed to grow on these sites. They need to be kept as bare of vegetation, as possible. Mainly for safety reasons, vegetation prevention is necessary because it can hide any water leaks which could cause damage to the dam.
