Migratory Shore & Upland Game Bird Working Group

Committee Charge

The Migratory Shore and Upland Game Bird Working Group works closely with the Bird Conservation Committee, the Flyway Councils, interagency advisory groups, and the Department of the Interior to identify problems and management opportunities regarding migratory shore and upland game birds. The working group should develop objectives and strategies for solving problems and addressing management challenges.

The working group recognizes the international nature of managing migratory shore and upland game birds and supports those initiatives that involve international negotiations.
