A. is considering removing them from the list of endangered species [them refers to bald eagle(singular), it should be used]
B. had considered removing them from the endangered species list [had considered - wrong tense, present tense should be used. Also them should be replaced by it, endangered species list is awkward construction. ]
C. considered removing it from the list of endangered species [considered- wrong tense. ]
D. is considering the removal of it from the list of endangered species [removal of it is unnecessary wordy and unacceptable]
E. is considering removing the eagle from the list of endangered species [is considering- correct tense(present continous), replaced the pronound it/they with the actual subject- eagle to avoid any ambiguity]

The bald eagle, once endangered, has made such a dramatic comeback that the government is considering removing them from the list of endangered species.
A. is considering removing them from the list of endangered species (bad eagle is singular. So usage of them is wrong)
B. had considered removing them from the endangered species list (Govt is presently considering. So usage of past perfect is wrong)
C. considered removing it from the list of endangered species (Usage of it for bald eagle and past tense is wrong)
D. is considering the removal of it from the list of endangered species (Usage of it for bald eagle is wrong)
E. is considering removing the eagle from the list of endangered species (Correct)

Kudos please if you like my explanation!
