Had the birds eating out of my hands - so thrilling :) Lovely walk to the beach. I will be returning with my grown children. The parking lot is not huge, so it can't get too crowded- i liked that.

This may be my all time favorite place to go in Sag Harbor. Walking along the trails here and the preserve feeding the birds is a most rewarding experience. If you are a "nature nut" then I highly recommend this visit.

Morton is one of my favorite places to go when I am in the area. I love to feed the chickadees along the beautiful wooded paths. (Bring traditional black sunflower seeds, it's their favorite!) There are walking trails, benches, beach, you can literally spend the...More
