Notice of availability. ACTION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, announce the availability of Birds of Conservation Concern 2021. This publication identifies species, subspecies, and populations of migratory birds in need of additional conservation actions. The purpose and goal of this publication is to stimulate and guide coordinated, collaborative, and proactive conservation actions for these taxa among Federal, State, Tribal, and private partners.

Individuals who are hearing or speech impaired may call the Federal Relay Service at 1–800–877–8339 for TTY assistance. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the availability of Birds of Conservation Concern 2021. This publication identifies species, subspecies, and populations of migratory birds in need of additional conservation actions. Our goal in publishing this list is to stimulate coordinated, collaborative, and proactive conservation actions among Federal, International, State, Tribal, and private partners. The 1988 amendment to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act of 1980 (FWCA; 16 U.S.C. 2901–2912) requires the Secretary of the Interior, through the Service, to ‘‘identify species, subspecies, and populations of all migratory nongame birds that, without additional conservation actions, are likely to become candidates for listing under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531–1543) [ESA].’’ 16 U.S.C. 2912; Public Law 100–653, 802. Birds of Conservation Concern 2021 fulfills that mandate and supersedes Birds of Conservation Concern 2008 (74 FR 11128). The overall purpose of the Birds of Conservation Concern list is to identify, by geography, those nongame migratory birds in greatest need of conservation attention. Thus, the species that appear in Birds of Conservation Concern 2021 are deemed to be the highest priority for conservation actions. We anticipate that the document will be consulted by Federal agencies and their partners prior to undertaking cooperative research, monitoring, and management actions that might directly or indirectly affect migratory birds. The philosophy underlying the BCC reports is that proactive bird conservation is critical at a time when continued human impacts will be intensified by effects of a changing climate. By investing in actions for designated BCC taxa, we can prevent further degradation to environments that we all share, improve the odds for successful long-term conservation, and avoid the complexities associated with federal ESA listing. Proactive conservation is recognized as being PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 more cost-effective than the recovery efforts required once a bird is listed under the ESA (e.g., Drechsler et al. 2011). To serve as a broad early-warning system in the context of the FWCA, this list includes all of the species that we consider to be of conservation concern. Our objective in publishing the list is to focus conservation attention on bird species of concern well in advance of a possible or plausible need to consider them for listing under the ESA. Inclusion on this list does not constitute a finding that listing under the ESA is warranted, or that substantial information exists to indicate that listing under the ESA may be warranted. Many of the species on this list may never have to be considered for ESA listing, even if no additional conservation actions are taken. Authority The authority for this notice is the FWCA; the ESA; the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956, as amended (16 U.S.C. 742a et seq.); and 16 U.S.C. 701.

Abstract: The Lacey Act (Act, 18 U.S.C. 42) prohibits the importation of any animal 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. Implementation and enforcement of the Lacey Act is the responsibility of the Department of the Interior. The Service, in concert with our diverse partners, works to conserve, restore, and maintain the nation’s fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems for the benefit of the American people, to include managing and controlling four species of invasive carp—bighead, black, grass, and silver— native to Asia. Under the authority of the Act, the Service listed bighead, black, and silver carp species as injurious wildlife to protect humans, native wildlife, and wildlife resources from the purposeful or accidental introduction of invasive carp into the nation’s aquatic ecosystems. The Service takes part in a broad, partner-driven approach to strategically control the movement of Invasive carp. The spread of these invasive species in the nation’s river systems threatens the conservation efforts conducted by our agency, our State partners, and other stakeholders, to promote self-sustaining aquatic resources and healthy aquatic ecosystems. In addition to widespread and longstanding ecological consequences, aquatic invasive species often result in significant economic losses and cost our nation’s economy billions of dollars per year. To effectively carry out our responsibilities under the Act and protect the aquatic resources of the United States, the Service, in collaboration with the U.S. Geological PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32057 Survey, proposes to administer applications of Carbon Dioxide-Carp by registered management partners (applicators) and to collect information regarding the usage of Carbon DioxideCarp, an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered product #6704– 95 to control Invasive carp. Carbon Dioxide-Carp is approved for use only by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, State natural resource managers, or persons under their direct supervision. The Service will use the information collected to document the label requests, maintain inventory, and document application results of Carbon Dioxide-Carp as an EPA registered product. The Service proposes to collect information from applicators using the following four forms: • Form 3–2130: Report on Receipt of Label—Applicators must apply for a label to attach to a treatment container of Carbon Dioxide-Carp prior to being able to legally apply it as an Invasive carp deterrent or as an under-ice lethal control for aquatic nuisance species. This form collects the following information: Æ Applicant’s information, to include address, date of birth, contact number(s), email address, and relevant business information (if application is on behalf of a business, corporation, public agency, Tribe, or institution); Æ Date of label receipt; Æ Site of application, to include GPS location, approximate number of surface acres, and date of application; Æ Label number; and Æ Name and address of applicator. • Form 3–2163: Inventory Form for Use with Carbon Dioxide-Carp— Registered applicators must maintain an accurate inventory of Carbon DioxideCarp for the duration of possession of the product label. This form collects the following information: Æ Applicant’s information, to include address, date of birth, contact number(s), email address, and relevant business information (if application is on behalf of a business, corporation, public agency, Tribe, or institution); Æ Date of application; Æ Amount of Carbon Dioxide-Carp applied (pounds); Æ Label number; Æ Label return date; Æ Any adverse incident; and Æ Name of applicator and affiliation. • Form 3–2164: Worksheet for Field Application Locations—Applicators must complete Form 3–2164 for each application of Carbon Dioxide-Carp before the actual application. This form collects the following information: E:\FR\FM\16JNN1.SGM 16JNN1 32058 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 114 / Wednesday, June 16, 2021 / Notices Æ Applicant’s information, to include address, date of birth, contact number(s), email address, and relevant business information (if application is on behalf of a business, corporation, public agency, Tribe, or institution); Æ Site information, to include the name and address of the location; applicator name, address, telephone number, and email address; and the applicator’s certification number; and Æ Carbon Dioxide-Carp use information, to include estimated pounds of Carbon Dioxide-Carp needed, estimated dates of use, purpose, and a list of obtained permits. • Form 3–2191: Results Report Form—Investigator must submit application results to the Service to document efficacy of the treatment and any possible adverse effects, as this data is required by the EPA to maintain product registration. This form collects the following information: Æ Applicant’s information, to include address, date of birth, contact number(s), email address, and relevant business information (if application is on behalf of a business, corporation, public agency, Tribe, or institution); Æ Site information (to include GPS coordinates and city/county/state) and reporting individual; and Æ Application information, to include total amount of Carbon Dioxide-Carp used (pounds), application date(s), adverse incident information (to include date reported to the U.S. Geological Survey), applicator name and label number, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit number, and burden. The ePermits platform would automate the five forms associated with this proposed information collection. Public burden reduction is a priority for the Service, the Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, and senior leadership at the Department of the Interior. The intent of the ePermits initiative is to fully automate the permitting and reporting process to improve the customer experience and to reduce time burden on respondents. This new system will enhance the user experience by allowing users to enter data from any device that has internet access, including personal computers, tablets, and smartphones. It will also link the permit applicant to the Pay.gov system for payment of any associated fees. Title of Collection: Online Program Management System for Carbon Dioxide-Carp. OMB Control Number: 1018–New. Form Number: FWS Forms 3–2130, 3– 2163, 3–2164, 3–2191, and 3–2541. Type of Review: New. Respondents/Affected Public: State and Tribal governments. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $45,000.00. We estimate that each of the anticipated 10 annual respondents would pay an EPA Maintenance fee of $400, a State registration fee of $252; and an administrative fee of $848 (totaling $15,000 ($1,500 × 10 respondents)). Each respondent will also incur a onetime startup cost of $3,000 (totaling $30,000 ($3,000 × 10 respondents)). other required permits and permit numbers. • Form 3–2541: 6(a)(2) Adverse Incident Report—Investigator must submit application adverse results to the Service to document any irregularities in the application circumstances or adverse effects on non-target organisms. This form collects the following information: Æ Administrative data, to include reporting and contact individual (if different), address and phone number, incident status, location and date of incident, when registrant became aware of incident, and whether incident was part of a larger study; Æ Pesticide data, to include whether exposure was to concentrate prior to dilution; Æ Incident circumstances, to include whether there is evidence that label directions were not followed, whether applicator is a certified pest control operator, type of exposure, incident site, situation, and brief description of habitat and incident circumstances; and Æ Information involving fish, wildlife, plants, or other non-target organisms; species; symptoms or adverse effects; magnitude of the effects; and any explanatory or qualifying information surrounding the incident. ePermits Initiative We are exploring the feasibility of using the Service’s new ‘‘ePermits’’ initiative, an automated permit application system that will allow the agency to move towards a streamlined permitting process to reduce public Average number of annual respondents Requirement Average number of responses each Average completion time per response (min) Average number of annual responses Estimated annual burden hours * ePermits Form 3–2130: Report on Receipt of Label Government ......................................................................... 9 1 9 12 1 1 1 15 0 9 12 1 15 0 Form 3–2130: Report on Receipt of Label Government ......................................................................... 1 ePermits Form 3–2163: Inventory Form for Use with Carbon Dioxide-Carp Government ......................................................................... 9 1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Form 3–2163: Inventory Form for Use with Carbon Dioxide-Carp Government .........................................................................

    Abstract: The Lacey Act (Act, 18 U.S.C. 42) prohibits the 
importation of any animal 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.
    Implementation and enforcement of the Lacey Act is the 
responsibility of the Department of the Interior. The Service, in 
concert with our diverse partners, works to conserve, restore, and 
maintain the nation's fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems for the 
benefit of the American people, to include managing and controlling 
four species of invasive carp--bighead, black, grass, and silver--
native to Asia. Under the authority of the Act, the Service listed 
bighead, black, and silver carp species as injurious wildlife to 
protect humans, native wildlife, and wildlife resources from the 
purposeful or accidental introduction of invasive carp into the 
nation's aquatic ecosystems.
    The Service takes part in a broad, partner-driven approach to 
strategically control the movement of Invasive carp. The spread of 
these invasive species in the nation's river systems threatens the 
conservation efforts conducted by our agency, our State partners, and 
other stakeholders, to promote self-sustaining aquatic resources and 
healthy aquatic ecosystems. In addition to widespread and longstanding 
ecological consequences, aquatic invasive species often result in 
significant economic losses and cost our nation's economy billions of 
dollars per year.
    To effectively carry out our responsibilities under the Act and 
protect the aquatic resources of the United States, the Service, in 
collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey, proposes to administer 
applications of Carbon Dioxide-Carp by registered management partners 
(applicators) and to collect information regarding the usage of Carbon 
Dioxide-Carp, an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered 
product #6704-95 to control Invasive carp. Carbon Dioxide-Carp is 
approved for use only by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. 
Geological Survey, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, State natural resource 
managers, or persons under their direct supervision.
    The Service will use the information collected to document the 
label requests, maintain inventory, and document application results of 
Carbon Dioxide-Carp as an EPA registered product. The Service proposes 
to collect information from applicators using the following four forms:
     Form 3-2130: Report on Receipt of Label--Applicators must 
apply for a label to attach to a treatment container of Carbon Dioxide-
Carp prior to being able to legally apply it as an Invasive carp 
deterrent or as an under-ice lethal control for aquatic nuisance

ePermits Initiative

    We are exploring the feasibility of using the Service's new 
``ePermits'' initiative, an automated permit application system that 
will allow the agency to move towards a streamlined permitting process 
to reduce public burden. The ePermits platform would automate the five 
forms associated with this proposed information collection. Public 
burden reduction is a priority for the Service, the Assistant Secretary 
for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, and senior leadership at the 
Department of the Interior. The intent of the ePermits initiative is to 
fully automate the permitting and reporting process to improve the 
customer experience and to reduce time burden on respondents. This new 
system will enhance the user experience by allowing users to enter data 
from any device that has internet access, including personal computers, 
tablets, and smartphones. It will also link the permit applicant to the 
Pay.gov system for payment of any associated fees.
    Title of Collection: Online Program Management System for Carbon 
Dioxide-Carp.
    OMB Control Number: 1018-New.
    Form Number: FWS Forms 3-2130, 3-2163, 3-2164, 3-2191, and 3-2541.
    Type of Review: New.
    Respondents/Affected Public: State and Tribal governments.
    Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $45,000.00. We estimate 
that each of the anticipated 10 annual respondents would pay an EPA 
Maintenance fee of $400, a State registration fee of $252; and an 
administrative fee of $848 (totaling $15,000 ($1,500 x 10 
respondents)). Each respondent will also incur a one-time startup cost 
of $3,000 (totaling $30,000 ($3,000 x 10 respondents)).
