About this Collection
Migratory bird permit policy is developed by the Migratory Bird Program and the permits themselves are issued by the Regional Bird Permit Offices. The regulations governing migratory bird permits can be found in 50 CFR part 13, 50 CFR part 21 (Migratory Bird Permits) and 50 CFR part 22 (Eagle Permits):
- 50 CFR 10 General Provisions
- 50 CFR 13 General Permit Procedures
- Importation, Exportation, and Transportation of Wildlife
- 50 CFR 21 Migratory Bird Permits
- 50 CFR 22 Eagle Permits
The purpose of the Migratory Bird Permit Memorandum series is to clarify regulations and other existing migratory bird permit policy to ensure internally consistent implementation of the migratory bird permit program.
