A resolution proclaiming June 20th as American Eagle Day was approved by both houses of the U.S. Congress in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011.

After nearly disappearing from most of the United States decades ago, the bald eagle is now flourishing across the nation. The removal of the bald eagle from the threatened and endangered species list was announced by Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne on June 28, 2007.
