This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:22 Dec 17, 2020 Jkt 253001 reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. On August 3, 2020, we published in the Federal Register (85 FR 46692) a notice of our intent to request that OMB approve this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on October 2, 2020. We received the following comments in response to that notice: Comment 1: The Atlantic Flyway Council expressed its support for continuation of the survey. Continuation of the survey is critical for the responsible management of American woodcock, an important migratory game bird in the Atlantic Flyway and North America. The SURVEY provides the only long-term, range-wide monitoring program for American woodcock. The results of the SURVEY form the basis of the American woodcock harvest strategy used to set the annual hunting regulations for American woodcock in the Atlantic, Mississippi, and Central Flyways. The data collection and reporting estimates provided by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service are reasonable and accurate. Agency Response to Comment 1: No action was taken, since the support was positive and there were no recommendations for improvement. As part of our continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burdens, we are again soliciting comments from the public and other Federal agencies on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following: (1) Whether or not the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) How might the agency minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of response. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Abstract: The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (16 U.S.C. 703–712) designates the Department of the Interior as the primary agency responsible for managing migratory bird populations frequenting the United States and setting hunting regulations that allow for the well-being of migratory bird populations. These responsibilities dictate that we gather accurate data on various characteristics of migratory bird populations. The North American Woodcock Singing Ground Survey is an essential part of the migratory bird management program. Federal, State, Provincial, Tribal, and local conservation agencies conduct the survey annually to provide the data necessary to determine the population status of the American woodcock. In addition, the information is vital in assessing the relative changes in the geographic distribution of the species. We use the information primarily to develop recommendations for hunting regulations. Without information on the population’s status, we might promulgate hunting regulations that: • Are not sufficiently restrictive, which could cause harm to the woodcock population, or • Are too restrictive, which would unduly restrict recreational opportunities afforded by woodcock hunting. The Service, State, and Provincial conservation agencies, university associates, and other interested parties use the data for various research and management projects.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1), we 
provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an 
opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing 
collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our 
information collection requirements and minimize the public's reporting 
burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection 
requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format.
    On August 3, 2020, we published in the Federal Register (85 FR 
46692) a notice of our intent to request that OMB approve this 
information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 
days, ending on October 2, 2020. We received the following comments in 
response to that notice:
    Comment 1: The Atlantic Flyway Council expressed its support for 
continuation of the survey. Continuation of the survey is critical for 
the responsible management of American woodcock, an important migratory 
game bird in the Atlantic Flyway and North America. The SURVEY provides 
the only long-term, range-wide monitoring program for American 
woodcock. The results of the SURVEY form the basis of the American 
woodcock harvest strategy used to set the annual hunting regulations 
for American woodcock in the Atlantic, Mississippi, and Central 
Flyways. The data collection and reporting estimates provided by the U. 
S. Fish and Wildlife Service are reasonable and accurate.
    Agency Response to Comment 1: No action was taken, since the 
support was positive and there were no recommendations for improvement.
    As part of our continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent 
burdens, we are again soliciting comments from the public and other 
Federal agencies on the proposed information collection request (ICR) 
that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment 
addressing the following:
    (1) Whether or not the collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether or not the information will have practical utility;
    (2) The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection 
of information, including the validity of the methodology and 
assumptions used;
    (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    (4) How might the agency minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on those who are to respond, including through the use of 
appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., 
permitting electronic submission of response.
    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 us in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we 
will be able to do so.
