Visitors a Multi-Sensory Experience

    NORTH FORK, N.Y., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The efforts of naturalists have
 paid off and the once endangered osprey is again a common site on Long
 Island's tranquil North Fork.  Platforms on poles along shorelines and
 farmlands entice these graceful fliers to build their nests to raise their
 young. A formidable predator, these large birds dive talons first in search of
 prey, often completely submerging themselves within the waters of the East End
 of Long Island. It's a wondrous natural site to behold and less than a 100
 miles from the center of Manhattan.
     During the entire month of April, participating Bed & Breakfast innkeepers
 and Osprey's Dominion Vineyards are celebrating the return of the majestic
 osprey and other local lore such as the spring peepers.  Lodgers will be
 provided with information about viewing the osprey, listening to the music of
 the spring peepers and other wonderful natural sites on the North Fork of Long
 Island!  And for those lodgers who wish to add a touch of romance, a discount
 coupon for a bottle of champagne or wine will be offered for Osprey's Dominion
 Vineyards.
