No, Bald Eagle populations have recovered since it was first put on the list in the 1970s. Today there are almost 10,000 breeding pairs in the contiguous 48 states. This is largely due to legislation like the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, as well as effective habitat protections.
On June 28, 2007 the Interior Department took the American bald eagle off the endangered species list. The bald eagle will still be protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (http://www.fws.gov/laws/lawsdigest/migtrea.html).
