Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Description of Respondents: State and Federal wildlife damage management personnel; farmers; and individuals. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: Annually. Estimated Number of Respondents: 30. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 30. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 2 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 60. Abstract: The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA; 16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.) implements four treaties concerning migratory birds that the United States has signed with Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Russia. Under the treaties, we must preserve most species of birds in the United States, and activities involving migratory birds are prohibited except as authorized by regulation. This information collection is associated with our regulations that implement the MBTA. In the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), 50 CFR 21.43 is a depredation order that authorizes take of blackbirds, cowbirds, grackles, crows, and magpies ‘‘when found committing or about to commit depredations upon ornamental or shade trees, agricultural crops, livestock, or DATES: E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 66760 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 215 / Wednesday, November 6, 2013 / Notices wildlife, or when concentrated in such numbers and manner as to constitute a health hazard or other nuisance.’’ All persons or entities acting under this depredation order must provide an annual report containing the following information for each species: • Number of birds taken. • Months and years in which the birds were taken. • State(s) and county(ies) in which the birds were taken. • General purpose for which the birds were taken (such as for protection of agriculture, human health and safety, property, or natural resources). We collect this information so that we will be able to determine how many birds of each species are taken each year and whether the control actions are likely to affect the populations of those species. Comments: On July 1, 2013, we published in the Federal Register (78 FR 39309) 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 August 30, 2013. We received two comments. One commenter objected to the killing of birds and funding for the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Wildlife Services. The other commenter stated that the State of Wyoming has no records for the species covered by the depredation order. The commenters did not address the information collection requirements, and we did not make any changes to our requirements. 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, email 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. While you can ask OMB in your comment to VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:25 Nov 05, 2013 Jkt 232001 withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it will be done.

Abstract The Lacey Act (18 U.S.C. 42) (Act) prohibits the possession or importation PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of any animal or plant deemed to be and prescribed by regulation to be injurious to: • Human beings; • The interests of agriculture, horticulture, and forestry; or • Wildlife or the wildlife resources of the United States. The Department of the Interior is charged with enforcement of this Act. The Act and regulations at 50 CFR part 16 allow for the importation of animals classified as injurious if specific criteria are met. To effectively carry out responsibilities and protect the aquatic resources of the United States, we must gather information on the animals being imported with regard to their source, destination, and health status. It is also imperative that we ensure the qualifications of those individuals who provide the fish health data and sign the health certificate upon which we base our decision to allow importation. We use three forms to collect this information: (1) FWS Form 3–2273 (Title 50 Certifying Official Form). New applicants and those seeking recertification as a title 50 certifying official provide information so that we can assess their qualifications. (2) FWS Form 3–2274 (U.S. Title 50 Certification Form). Certifying officials use this form or their own health certificate to affirm the health status of the fish or their reproductive products to be imported. (3) FWS Form 3–2275 (Title 50 Importation Request Form). We use the information on this form to ensure the safety of the shipment and to track and control importations. II.

    Abstract: The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA; 16 U.S.C. 703 et

United States has signed with Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Russia. Under 
the treaties, we must preserve most species of birds in the United 
States, and activities involving migratory birds are prohibited except

    This information collection is associated with our regulations that

21.43 is a depredation order that authorizes take of blackbirds, 
cowbirds, grackles, crows, and magpies ``when found committing or about

constitute a health hazard or other nuisance.''
    All persons or entities acting under this depredation order must 
provide an annual report containing the following information for each 
species:
     Number of birds taken.
     Months and years in which the birds were taken.
     State(s) and county(ies) in which the birds were taken.
     General purpose for which the birds were taken (such as 
for protection of agriculture, human health and safety, property, or 
natural resources).
    We collect this information so that we will be able to determine 
how many birds of each species are taken each year and whether the 
control actions are likely to affect the populations of those species.

     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
