  • Wildlife Viewing

    Visitors viewing wildlife on the refuge - USFWS.

    The coastal location of this refuge makes it a prime stopover for migrating raptors, shorebirds and songbirds. The federally protected roseate tern and piping plover use Amagansett for resting, feeding, and nesting.

    Although piping plovers tend to be very skittish and elusive, the patient photographer can be rewarded with lasting images!
