I read that the Bald Eagle has been taken off of the endangered and threatened species list in the USA. The bird has recovered from a low of 417 pairs in 1963 to 9789 in 2006 in the USA (excl Hawaii and Alaska).
There are concerns though with how the Eagles will compete for habitat on lakes and river shores with man. Landowners want to build on these shores and have complained that the Eagles status meant they were unable to.
All is not plain sailing for the landowners recent modifications to the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act mean it now covers the bald eagle
