      On 29 August 1916, the U.S. Senate ratified the migratory bird treaty with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland for the protection of migratory birds in Canada and the U.S.

       

     

    The entire text (from the Congressional Record) reads:

    PROTECTION OF MIGRATORY BIRDS.
    During the executive session the Senate adopted a resolution advising and consenting to the ratification of a convention between the United States and Great Britain, Executive Document E, providing for the protection of migratory birds in the United States and Canada, signed at Washington August 16,
    1916, and on motion by Mr. O'GORMAN the injunction of secrecywas removed from the same.
