Birds at the Sands Point Preserve

Juvenile Bald Eagle

According to the North Shore Audubon Society, the Sands Point Preserve is a particularly healthy sanctuary for dozens of bird species – many of which reside here year-round, while others stop off here as they migrate North and South with the changing seasons.  The woodlands here provide an important refuge for breeding birds, offering secluded nesting sites and plenty of natural food resources.

The Sands Point Preserve is ranked on eBird as one of the best locations in Nassau County to see both migratory and resident birds. Our Conservancy Members and visitors search for bird species in the different environments of the Preserve – forest, beach, and pond – and have shared their photos.
