This Group monitors the compliance of Parties with the provisions related to bird conservation, including migratory birds, and informs the Committee on the progress in the implementation of the species action plans so far endorsed.

It further identifies other species requiring specific action plans and proposes measures that may be appropriate for the conservation of threatened birds. Among its priorities, the Group of Experts is leading European work against the illegal killing, trapping and trade of wild birds.
