ABSTRACT
The article reports the recovery of the population of the bald eagle species and the plan of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as of April 2006 to remove them from the Federal Threatened Species List. Even if the bald eagles are removed from the list, there are two laws that will protect them: the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Thus, making it still illegal to disturb eagles, either at nesting or site where they assemble during winter. The population of bald eagles declined in the U.S. due to hunting and development pressure, and the use of pesticide dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane made the eagle's eggshells so thin that they cracked when incubated.
