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.
