Dan Brauning
Dan Brauning will summarize highlights from the recently-published Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania, of which he, Andy Wilson and Bob Mulvihill were editors. This presentation will address significant changes observed from the first Pennsylvania breeding bird atlas (which he edited), including species gained and lost, other notable changes in distribution, and the conservation value of this work. He will also describe and provide examples of Pennsylvania's innovative point count survey to obtain population density for over half of the species. This will include a discussion of how Bird Atlas projects compliment the annual Breeding Bird Survey for population monitoring, and some analytical methods employed to obtain these results. This is a richly illustrated presentation with many maps and bird photos.
Dan Brauning works with a strong team of biologists to plan and implement conservation of Pennsylvania's 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 Mulvihill) of the resulting book, the Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania (2012). - Young bald eagles fly in Green Lane Park [cached]
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.

"Bluebirds are early nesters, so now is the time to put up new nest boxes, as well as to clean and repair existing boxes," said Dan Brauning, Game Commission Wildlife Diversity Division chief.

"In the early 1960s, the eastern bluebird was hanging on for dear life," said Dan Brauning, Game Commission Wildlife Diversity Section supervisor.
