Fish and Wildlife Service September 11, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Migratory Birds; Take of Peregrine Falcons for Use in Falconry
Document Number: 2017-19140
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-09-11
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
In December 2008, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service completed an environmental assessment (EA) on the take of peregrine falcons for use in falconry. In 2009 and 2010, we published notices in the Federal Register describing the take limits and geographic allocation of take for first-year fall-migrant (passage) peregrine falcons consistent with the selected alternative in that EA. The overall take limits have remained constant since 2009. This notice is to inform the public that, at the request of the Atlantic, Mississippi and Central Flyway Councils, we have reviewed recent data and are revising the take limits for passage peregrine falcons beginning in the fall of 2017.
