Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge, Sag Harbor
You can have the chickadee eating out of your hand! Literally!
At the Elizabeth A. Morton Wildlife Refuge in Sag Harbor, the chickadee will eat sunflower seeds right out of your hand.
There are hiking trails and a beach on the Peconic Bay, and many beautiful birds.
Now, I don't want all of you rushing over there to scare the poor little birds away!
Be respectful of nature. Stand quietly with hand extended. Quietly!
The chickadee are as light as a feather.
Try not to move!
There are some other rules that you should follow when observing nature on Long Island or elsewhere.
"Don't take anything but photographs and don't leave anything but footprints!"
