Each flyway has a Council, consisting of representatives from each state, provincial, and territorial agency within that Flyway.

Data for each administrative Flyway is summarized and provided in Flyway-specific reports called "data books." These data books include Flyways and reserve networks for water birds book of species- and population-specific abundances, harvests, and other important information derived from State-Federal Cooperative monitoring programs such as the Harvest Information Program, the Waterfowl Breeding Population and Habitat Survey, the.
