Guest Speaker, Mr. Daniel Brauning, Wildlife Diversity Chief Pennsylvania Game Commission, will present "The State of Pennsylvania's Birds." Picture Dan Brauning was born and raised within the city limits of Philadelphia. He had formative outdoor experience in the extensive park system of that city and on farms of extended family in Nebraska and Kansas. He is happily married to Marcia and father of the boys.Hobbies include mentoring growing sons, bird watching, ecotourism and gardening. He is active in his church. Dan received a BS in Biology from Geneva College, Beaver Falls PA in 1979 and then went on to receive a MS from the Interdisciplinary Program in Ecology, at Pennsylvania State University in 1982. His thesis was on nest-sites selection strategies of the American Kestrel. Prior to coming to Game Commission, Dan served as Project Coordinator of the first Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlas Project. He completed that effort as editor of the book, Atlas of the Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania (1992). In 2000 he co-authored, with Gerald McWilliams, "The Birds of Pennsylvania." Dan Brauning works with a strong team of biologist to plan and implement conservation of Pennsylvania birds and mammals. Joining the Pennsylvania Game Commission as Ornithologist in 1990, he now juggles the issues of bird and mammal research and management as the Chief of the Wildlife Diversity Program. Dan assists with a number of state and regional projects, including Project Director of the 2nd Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlas Project 2004-2009 and Co-Editor with Dr. Andy Wilson and Robert Mulvhill of the resulting book, the Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania.2012.

Dan Brauning, a biologist with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, confirmed the success in Green Lane Park.
"We've looked at it pretty closely and I can say with a good degree of confidence that we don't know of an eagles nest in Montgomery County in over 100 years," Brauning said.
Bald eagles, whose numbers were once ravaged by the pesticide DDT, are listed as endangered in Pennsylvania.But the population has been on the rise in recent years, principally because of the Game Commission's eagle reintroduction program from 1983 to 1989.
Montgomery County doesn't lend itself to eagle colonization, Brauning said.
"Generally, eagles are looking for some open water and a secure nest site, a big tree and minimum disturbance," he said.
