Come and meet our friends from the Quogue Wildlife Refuge at the Lighthouse. Get up close and personal with Birds of Prey at Noon and 1:30 pm. Fun, educational and entertaining for the whole family!
The Red-tailed Hawk is the most common broad winged hawk in North America, and the refuge has a male hawk in residence. In December 2008 the pale-breasted Red-tailed Hawk, “Pale-Male” was brought to North Fork Animal Hospital with a broken left wing, and subsequently, to the Refuge. This bird also had a leather jess on one foot, which indicates that he may have been a falconer’s bird.
