The Trump Administration's Interior Department has issued an Opinion decriminalizing "incidental takes"—the taking/killing of a migratory bird that results from, but is not the purpose of, an activity—by concluding that the Migratory Bird Treaty Act does not prohibit incidental takes. This is a reversal from an Obama-era interpretation that the Act criminalized any action killing a migratory bird. However, companies may still be subject to liability pursuant to the broader definition of "take" under the Endangered Species Act or the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.
