Memorandum: Department of the Interior – Memorandum M-37050
AbstractThis memorandum analyzes whether the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, 16 U.S.C. § 703("MBTA"), prohibits the accidental or " incidental" taking or killing of migratory birds. Unless permitted by regulation, the MBT A prohibits the "taking" and " killing" of migratory birds. "Incidental take" is take that results from an activity, but is not the purpose of that activity. This Memorandum finds that the MBTA's prohibitions on pursuing, hunting, taking, capturing, killing, or attempting to do the same apply only to affirmative actions that have as their purpose the taking or killing of migratory birds, their nests, or their eggs.
