We visit the Morton preserve several times a year. It is one of my favorite places on the South Fork of LI. There are short walks through woods filled with birds and wild turkeys! As others have noted, if you hold out bird seed, chickadees,...More

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.

This preserve is, perhaps, best fondly known for visitors hand-feeding wild birds (which you are not supposed to do). Beyond the illicit bird-feeding, the refuge has lovely, well-maintained trails, one of which leads down to a beach, where (season permitting) a stroll along the shore...More
