Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion for applications; annually or on occasion for reports. Number of Respondents: 57,260. Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 57,260. Completion Time per Response: Varies from 15 minutes to 40 hours depending on activity. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 93,402.

Abstract: Our Regional Migratory Bird Permit Offices use information that we collect on permit applications to determine the eligibility of applicants for permits requested in accordance with the criteria in various Federal wildlife conservation laws and international treaties, including: (1) Migratory Bird Treaty Act (16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.). (2) Lacey Act (16 U.S.C. 3371 et seq.). (3) Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 668). Service regulations implementing these statutes and treaties are in Chapter I, Subchapter B of Title 50 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These regulations stipulate general and specific requirements that, when met, allow us to issue permits to authorize activities that are otherwise prohibited. All Service permit applications are in the 3–200 series of forms, each tailored to a specific activity based on the requirements for specific types of permits. We collect standard identifier information for all permits. The information that we collect on applications and reports is the minimum necessary for us to determine if the applicant meets/continues to meet issuance requirements for the particular activity. This revised ICR includes modifications to the format and content of the currently approved applications so that they (a) are easier to understand and complete and (b) will accommodate future electronic permitting. This ICR includes four permit application and report forms that are currently approved under OMB Control Number 1018–0136. Once OMB takes action on this IC, we will discontinue OMB Control No. 1018–0136. • FWS Form 3–200–71 (Eagle Take (Disturb)). PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • FWS Form 3–200–72 (Eagle Nest Take). • FWS Form 3–202–15 (Eagle Take Monitoring and Annual Report). • FWS Form 3–202–16 (Eagle Nest Take Monitoring and Reporting). In addition, we are proposing three new forms: • FWS Form 3–200–81 (Special Purpose—Utility) will provide an application specifically tailored for utilities (e.g., power, communications) to request permits to salvage migratory birds on their property and rights-ofway. • FWS Form 3–200–82 (Eagle Transport Into and Out of the United States) will provide an application for permits under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act to transport dead eagle specimens into and out of the country temporarily for scientific or exhibition purposes, such as for museum exhibits. • FWS Form 3–202–17 (Special Purpose—Utility Annual Report) will provide a standardized annual report form for Special Purpose—Utility permits. Comments: On April 7, 2010, we published in the Federal Register (75 FR 17757) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval for this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on June 7, 2010. We did not receive any comments. We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time.

We originally opened this comment period for 60 days, from September 15, 2010, to November 15, 2010. We are re-opening the public comment period until December 15, 2010, in response to several requests for additional time to review and comment on the draft revised recovery plan. For background information on the draft revised recovery plan, see our September 15, 2010, notice. As stated in that notice, we particularly seek comments concerning portions of the draft revised recovery plan that have been updated from the 2008 recovery plan. Appendix C of the draft revised recovery plan described stages 1 and 2 of our ongoing three-stage spotted owl modeling effort. Since its release we have continued this effort, initiating population response modeling using the individual-based population program HexSim. Though still at preliminary draft stage, population response simulations from this portion of the modeling process are available for public review by request from our office. These simulations do not estimate what will occur in the future, but provide comparative information on potential population responses to different conservation scenarios as described in the draft revised recovery plan.

These regulations stipulate general and specific requirements that,
