FIFTH FREE GUIDED BIRD WALK FOR THE PUBLIC IS THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 29 AT HILLS CREEK STATE PARK; 11 PEOPLE GO ON APRIL 22 WALK
The fifth free guided-bird walk is this Saturday, April 29. Participants will meet at the Hills Creek State Park office at 111 Spillway Road, Wellsboro, Pa. 16901-9676 a little before 8 a.m. and drive to the nearby starting location promptly at 8 a.m. No registration is required.
Of the 11 people who went on the April 22 walk, one was Bob Edkin, Leonard Harrison State Park environmental education specialist who led the walk, seven were members of the Tiadaghton Audubon Society and three were from the general public. They saw 29 species of birds. “Our most exciting sightings were a great egret and a broad-winged hawk,” said Edkin. “We haven’t seen any warblers yet. It was a comfortable walk with temperatures in the low 50s,” he said.
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, May 6, 13, 20 and 27. They are all free and open to the public.
