SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the August 31, 2005, Federal Register (70 
FR 51946), we published a final rule prescribing hunting seasons, 
hours, areas, and daily bag and possession limits for mourning, white-
winged, and white-tipped doves; band-tailed pigeons; rails; moorhens 
and gallinules; woodcock; common snipe; sandhill cranes; sea ducks; 
early (September) waterfowl seasons; migratory game birds in Alaska, 
Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands; and some extended falconry 
seasons. The rule contained errors in the entries for Hawaii and Texas, 
which are discussed briefly below and corrected by this notice.
    We received public comment on the proposed rules for the seasons 
and limits established by the August 31 final rule. We addressed these 
comments in a final rule published in the August 30, 2005 (70 FR 
51522), Federal Register. The corrections are typographical in nature 
and involve no substantial changes to the substance in the contents of 
the prior proposed and final rules.
