Caumsett State Historic Park
Huntington, Suffolk County
Overlooking Lloyd Harbor with beachfront along the Long Island Sound, Caumsett State Historic Park is designated as a significant coastal fish and wildlife habitat and a Bird Conservation Area. The park includes woodlands, rocky shores and salt marshes and is host to more than 200 species of birds. Endangered shorebirds, including piping plovers and least terns, nest along the shore. Osprey can easily be seen nesting in the park and fishing along the shoreline. During the winter, common loons are visible in the Sound, and winter ducks inhabit the freshwater pond.
