Reveal has obtained never-before-released data from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service showing more than 300 species of migratory birds -- from red-tailed hawks to American kestrels, turkey vultures to mallard ducks -- have been killed legally across the United States since 2011 to protect a wide range of business activities and public facilities under whats called the "depredation permit" program.
