The U.S. Fish and Wildlife has been monitoring the bald eagle population in the lower 48 states since the bird was listed on the Endagered Species list in 1963 and the monitoring program began. As of 2006, there were 9,789 breeding pairs recorded in the United States, not including Alaska (where there is a bald eagle population) or Hawaii (where there is not a bald eagle population). This means that there were at least 19,578 individual adult bald eagles in 2006. The population has been steadily rising since DDT was banned in the early 1960s.
