The measurements, which are outlined in the bald eagle management plan, include having 150 active nests for five years.
The state also counts the number of counties in which nests are found and how many young are produced from those nests.
"We've been able to sustain those numbers for a long enough time period that we don't think it's a statistical fluke or that something would change suddenly, and they would turn around and have to list them again," Brauning said.
The bald eagle was moved from "endangered" to "threatened" on the U.S. Endangered Species List in 1995 and delisted in 2007.
Even though it made a successful return across the country, that doesn't mean each state has a large population.
This is why the bird remained on the Pennsylvania Threatened and Endangered Species List.
Brauning said when the game commission meets with its board for quarterly meetings, it presents the most recent information regarding the species.
The board, which is a governor-appointed group of eight members that rule on regulatory issues, will the make the final ruling on whether the eagle will be moved to "protected."
Brauning said the game commission believes measurements of the bald eagle are sufficient enough to have it delisted, but the issue is available for public comment if the public feels it's not ready.
"We'll assemble the comment we receive from the public and present that to our board in January, and then they will make the final decision," Brauning said.
