Brookside County Park Outdoor Presentation was a Huge Success

Jun 20, 2023 | The Sandpiper

On June 15th, the Great South Bay Audubon Society held its last meeting of the year at the Brookside County Park, where they showcased a live animal event presented by the Quogue Wildlife Refuge.

QWR presenters Cara Fernandes and Marisa Nelson, aptly handled a Red Tail Hawk named “Red” and a Great Horned Owl named “Hooter,” sharing their individual histories and many other important facts about these birds. 

The event was attended by 20 or so members and guests and was a lovely evening in the serene environment of Brookside Park in Sayville.

On July 8th, the GSBAS is revamping their butterfly garden and removing non-native plants. They are in need of every type of volunteer! If you can help, please contact them at 631.563.7716 or

Hello, my little birding friends! Hope this newsletter finds you well and enjoying the birds. The winter birds and ducks have left, and the spring and summer ones are arriving. Some are just passing by, and some will stay.
