American Eagle
Interactive Map: Bald Eagle Populations Over the Years: Breeding Pairs in 1990

Before European settlers first sailed to America’s shores, bald eagles may have numbered half a million. They nested in forty-five of the lower forty-eight states.

Four years before the bald eagle was listed as an endangered species in 1967 there were fewer than 500 breeding pairs in the lower forty-eight.

Click around the following maps to find out how many bald eagle breeding pairs there were in each of the lower forty-eight states from 1990 to 2000.
