Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge

Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge Review

These open meadows and broken woods shelter kildeers, broad-winged and red-tailed hawks, several types of flycatchers, a few warblers, woodpeckers, eastern kingbirds, and bluebirds. In spring, listen for the evening mating rituals of American woodcocks. In fall, watch for the occasional peregrine falcon—a few breeding pairs nest in the nearby cliffs.
