Welcome to Migratory Birds for the Mountain-Prairie Region. We provide leadership in the conservation of migratory bird habitat through partnerships, grants, and outreach for present and future generations. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has the primary responsibility for administration of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (1918), its amendments, and subsequent acts. All migratory birds are listed as trust species and require USFWS to manage these species.The Migratory Bird Program is responsible for maintaining healthy migratory bird populations for the benefit of the American people.
Learn about the list of species protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) are a subset of the trust species. Learn more about the MBTA and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. The Mountain-Prairie Region has two coordinators responsible for these issues. The Migratory Bird Coordinator is responsible for migratory birds in the Region. The nongame Migratory Bird Coordinator has responsibility for the nongame species.
