NOTE: Bald eagles were removed from the endangered species list in June 2007 because their populations recovered sufficiently. However, the protections under the Bald and Golden Eagle Act (Eagle Act) continue to apply. Please see the eagle information on our Landowner Tools page or our national website at http://www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/baldeagle.htm for information regarding new permit requirements under the Eagle Act.
