The court affirms the district court's decision, 17 ELR 20996, holding that New York's Wild Bird Law, which bans the sale of wild-caught birds within the state, is not preempted by either the Endangered Species Act or federal quarantine laws and that it does not impose an unconstitutional burden on interstate commerce.
