Those who went on the third Saturday Morning Bird Walk on April 15 at Hills Creek State Park saw evening grosbeaks (pictured). “The grosbeaks flew over quickly,” said Tiadaghton Audubon Society member Gary Tyson.
The fourth free guided-bird walk is this Saturday, April 22. Participants will meet at the Hills Creek State Park office at 111 Spillway Road, Wellsboro, Pa. 16901 a little before 8 a.m. and drive to the nearby starting location promptly at 8 a.m. No registration is required.
Of the 12 people who went on the April 15 walk led by Bob Edkin, Leonard Harrison State Park environmental education specialist, eight were members of the Tiadaghton Audubon Society and three were from the general public. They saw 31 species of birds. Most noticeable because of their bright colors were evening grosbeaks and a purple finch.
The other walks will begin at Hills Creek State Park on Hills Creek Road in Charleston Township, about seven miles northeast of Wellsboro at 8 a.m. on Saturdays, April 29 and May 6, 13, 20 and 27. They are all free and open to the public.
