Welcome to the Tiadaghton Audubon Society web site. We hope you will find this web site to be useful and interesting. Our chapter was founded in 1906 with 23 members, making it the oldest chapter in the state. The Tiadaghton name was selected in 1953, and in 1972 the chapter was officially chartered. We welcome your comments or suggestions. Please feel free to contact us here by email, or if you prefer, our mailing address is Tiadaghton Audubon Society, PO Box 605, Wellsboro Pa, 16901.

May 25 Meeting. The Tiadaghton Audubon Society will host a program entitled “Timber Rattlesnakes” presented by Stan Boder on Wednesday, May 25th. Stan is a senior herpetologist at Wildlife Specialists and a PA Fish and Boat Commission approved timber rattlesnake biologist. Join us to see a live rattlesnake in person and to learn about this often misunderstood Tioga County resident. The business meeting will begin at 6:30 pm, followed by the program at 7:30 at the Gmeiner Art and Culture Center in Wellsboro. The business meeting and program are both open to the public so all are encouraged to attend. Please note that this program is not on our normal 3rd Wednesday of the month. Please visit us on Facebook to learn more about your local Audubon chapter.

Hills Creek Bird Walks. Our annual spring bird walks at Hills Creek State Park (held every Saturday in April and May) will continue through the rest of the month. Participants should meet at 8:00 AM, at the park office. Most waterfowl have passed on through, but now as the trees and shrubs continue to leaf out, large numbers of land migrants are beginning to be seen, including ovenbirds, common yellowthroats, pine, palm, black-throated green, black-and-white, and yellow warblers, rose-breasted grosbeaks, and even hummingbirds. Bald eagles are present, and ospreys have returned to the area, and we are regularly seeing them. More migratory land birds are starting to arrive, and their numbers will increase through May. There are no fees, and birders of all levels or anyone just interested in birds are welcome to attend. No prior notification is required. Just show up.
