"The Expansion of Brown Pelicans Into the Chesapeake Bay Region" presented by Dave Brinker

During the mid-1900s, Brown Pelicans seriously declined along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States and were eventually listed as a threatened species.  Historically, pelicans had never been recorded as a nesting species in Maryland or anywhere to the north. As pelican populations were recovering from the impacts of DDT, Dave discovered Marylandís first Brown Pelican nesting in 1987.  Since wandering into the Middle Atlantic States, Brown Pelican populations have increased dramatically. The remarkable expansion of local Brown Pelicans in the region will be described.  Come learn how adults feed tiny chicks, and where Maryland nesting pelicans spend their winters, along with other snippets of the natural history of this fascinating water bird.

Welcome to the home page of the Prince George's Audubon Society (PGAS), a local chapter of the National Audubon Society serving Audubon members in the northern part of Prince George's County, Maryland.  PGAS was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization with officers and a board of directors, all volunteers, elected by the general membership.  Membership in PGAS is obtained through the National Audubon Society.  PGAS members receive our chaper newsletter, The Bluebird, and are encouraged to actively participate in chapter activities including a monthly speaker series, bird walks, field trips, annual bird counts, and other special events. 

This website is for members of PGAS to keep up to date on program and field trip schedules and other chapter activities.  In addition, this website serves as a resource for non-members to find out more about Audubon and PGAS and to explore the benefits of membership.  Non-members are welcome to participate in our meetings and field trips and are free to take advantage of the local birding and environmental information on this website as well as the links to a wide range of related information available on the internet.  Of course, if you live in northern Prince George's County we would love to have you as a PGAS member, and membership information is always available.
