Rules for Enforcing Law to Protect Migratory Game" Birds
This much for
Now that the Weeks-McLean bill giving
federal protection to moratory birds,
which was characterixel on the floor of
the house as "the most radical legislation j
ever nronofed In this country," has bo-
come a law, the American Uame Pro
tective and Propagation association, which
engineered the passage of the measure,
Is being swamped with Iwiulries as to
how and when It will be put Into effect
In answer to these, the following state
Cnt has ixxtl been Issued:
An amendment to the Weeks-McLean
hill which was made lust before final

Udes that when these regulations ara
prepared they shall be mado public and
tliat a j.crlod of three months shall be
al owed before final adoption, In order ,
that they may be examined and con
tllcred and that public hearings may be
granted If this is deemed advisable.
At the present time It Is lmposlble to
any how much time will bo required to
draw up these rcgulotlons. The matter
will be entrusted to the biological survey,
which Is a bureau of the Department of
Agriculture, and while much of tho
requisite data have nlrcady been collected
in connection with tho survey's other ac
tivities, It will at lenat be necessary o
compile available Information or migra
tions and breeding habits in different sec
tions of tho country, and co-ordinate It
with the proposed regulations (n view. It
may be found advisable to make wore
exhaustive investigations of these prob
lems to supplement thoso which have
been carried out for other purposes. In
any case, It will bo impossible for the
new law to take effect In time to protect

"Tho regulations imposed will prohibit
absolutely the killing of those sqng and
insectivoroui birds whose value to agri
culture greatly outweighs their food
value. Notable members of this class are
robins, blackbirds and bobolinks, Jn a
general way it Is safo to say that migra
tory birds such as duoks, geese, swans
and shore birds, will bo protected from
the time they mate In tho spring until
their young are full grown. As these
birds mate earlier In some parts of the
United States than In others, hard and
fast rules governing open and closed
seasons cannot he mado for the whole
country, but stones will have to bo cre

Additional protection In certain rones, or
for the whole country, wilt probably be
given to oome specie which ara now
threatened with extinction until they
have Increased beyond the danger point.
Likely candidates for this special con
sideration aro the woodcock, In many
localities, the woodduck, trumpeter swan,
whooping and sandhill cranes, and many
vnrletles of shore birds,

That nothing herein contained shall he

within their borders, nor to prevent the
states and territories from enacting laws
and regulations to promote and render
efficient the regulations of the 'Depart
ment of Agriculture provided under this
statute.' Aa most states already have
laws which will fulfill the requirements
of the federal law, no new restrictions
will be placed on their cltUens unless In
the matter of better enforcement, and
as tho laws were made to bo enforced
there can be no logical objection to this.
In the fight to vecuro this legislation It
was plainly shown that the better senti
ment In those states which now allow
spring shooting, and the slaughter of song
birds. Is. decidedly against these practices,
and It was mnde evident that all rent
sportsmen and all thinking people will
welcome federal action to put a stop to
them where It has been 'Impossible to

to note that one of the most able law

It should logically be extended to Inter

Introduced a resolution requesting the
president to propose to ' other North
American countries the negotiation of
treaties for the mutual protection of
migratory birds. Senators Weeks and
MaLean are in favor of this proposal and
will prove powerful allies In getting t
through. The national association has
already commenced to lay plans, with
every hope that the same protection will
bo given to our migrants when they are
beyond our bordors that we have just
accorded them while they are with us."
