About Bald Eagles

Once a plentiful species, the Bald Eagle was selected as the national bird of the United States in 1782, but, the population of this magnificent bird dropped drastically in the 20th century due to the use of pesticides, overhunting and pollution of rivers. However, a successful recovery plan was created, and it is currently proposed for removal from the endangered species list.
