This table represents a sampling of eagle-related documents from the Federal Register. It provides summaries derived from the federal register documents themselves and links to the actual materials. For discussion of federal Eagle Act, see Detailed Discussion.

The collection of eaglets ultimately results their ceremonial sacrifice.The Park Service employs a RFRA-based analysis to justify its ruling, but then states that regardless, it has unilateral authority to allow this practice in the national monument.
This final rule revises the general eagle permit restrictions applicable to American Indians and public institutions. The regulation provides for the issuance of eagle permits for transportation of lawfully possessed eagle parts into or out of the United States only when the eagle parts have a religious purpose, or when a public institution transports eagle parts for scientific or exhibition purposes. This notice was published after carefully considered the needs of science and education, the religious protections guaranteed by the United States Constitution, and the recommendations made by those responding.
Proposal by the Fish and Wildlife Service to remove the bald eagle from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in the lower 48 States of the United States because the available data indicate that this species has recovered. The recovery was due in part to habitat protection and management actions initiated under the Endangered Species Act. It is also due to reduction in levels of persistent organochlorine pesticides (DDT) occurring in the environment. This rule describes proposed post-delisting monitoring plan for bald eagles.
Provides final notification that the bald eagle is reclassified under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 from endangered to threatened in the lower 48 States. The bald eagle remained classified as threatened in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon, and Washington where it was currently listed as threatened. This action did not alter conservation measures already in force to protect the species and its habitats. While the bald eagle also occurs in Alaska and Canada, it is not at risk there and thus is not protected under the Act.
Notice that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is reopening the comment period on the bald eagle reclassification proposal for thirty days. On July 12, 1994, the Service proposed reclassifying the bald eagles of the lower 48 States as threatened, except those already listed as threatened and those of the Southwestern Recovery Region and Mexico. The bald eagles of the Southwestern Recovery Region were proposed to remain listed as endangered. Specific public comment was solicited on the status of bald eagles in the Southwest and Mexico and the distinctness of those eagles as a separate population.New information indicates that the Southwestern and Mexican bald eagles may not warrant a classification as endangered.
Concerns the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s review of the status of the bald eagle in preparation of a proposal to either reclassify or delist the species. Since 1978 when the species was listed throughout its range in the conterminous States, the bald eagle has increased in several important population parameters including the number of nesting pairs and production of young, and has met the goals for reclassification from endangered to threatened in four of these five recovery plans. Part of the function of the notice was to seek data and public comment regarding the downlisting or delisting of the bald eagle.
Because of conflicts between preservation of golden eagle nests and resource development or recovery operations, particularly surface coal mining activities in the western States, Congress amended the Eagle Protection Act to authorize the Secretary of the Interior to issue regulations that permit the taking of golden eagle nests found on the site of those operations under certain circumstances.Under that authority, the Service amends its regulations under the Eagle Protection Act to permit the taking (i.e., collection, molestation, disturbance, or destruction) of golden eagle nests during resource development or recovery operations when the nests are inactive if the taking is compatible with the preservation of the area nesting population of golden eagles.Little or no long-term impact on area nesting populations of golden eagles is expected as a result of this action.
This notice advises the public of the Fish and Wildlife Service's development of a golden eagle management plan and invites public comment. The plan is needed to: (1) identify golden eagle needs; and (2) guide Service management and research efforts for golden eagles. The intended effect of the plan is to protect and conserve golden eagle populations while facilitating balanced development of the Nation's natural resources and the resolution of eagle/human conflicts.
