Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge

December 31, 2014  •  1 Comment

Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge is located on the south shore of Long Island in Sag Harbor. It is an amazing place where wild birds will eat out of your hand. The winter is my favorite time to go there especially when there is snow on the ground, I get the best Northern Cardinal shots with the white snow makes the Cardinals red color explode. There are a number of species that will land on your hand here. The Black Capped Chickadee is the friendliest, you also have Nuthatches, Tuft Titmouse and a few woodpecker species that will land in your hand the Hairy Woodpecker and on a rare occasion a Red Bellied Woodpecker. I have even had Chipmunks and Wild Turkey eat out of my hand. I have never had a Cardinal land in my hand but they are all over the place. At times there are a lot of people walking through and when you are trying to photograph the birds it is challenging but it is well worth the trip. This place is a treasure to me, if you go I just ask to respect the rules and the birds and enjoy it.
