CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is holding a hearing on additions and removals to its lists of endangered and threatened species.

Additions to the lists include the purple martin, red knot, and two species of bats. The department proposes removing the bald eagle from the threatened list and the American marten from the endangered list.

New Hampshire started participating in a national midwinter eagle survey in 1981, when few were documented. In 2007, bald eagles were removed from the federal endangered species list. The following year, New Hampshire upgraded the bird’s status from endangered to threatened.

The hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday at headquarters in Concord.
