Birding & Wildlife Trail: Fairystone Farms Wildlife Management Area

Animals & Wildlife

Experience wild and scenic beauty by walking a part of the Virginia Birding & Wildlife Trail network. Easy access to nature trail traversing forest and open fields. Once stepping into the forest, white-tailed deer start appearing almost everywhere - at every turn white-tailed deer and their fawns are grazing around the corner.

This tranquil setting is perfect for a variety of eastern woodland birds such as mourning dove, ruby-throated hummingbird, downy, red-bellied and pileated woodpeckers, eastern wood-pewee, blue jay, Carolina chickadee, tufted titmouse, white-breasted nuthatch, blue-gray gnatcatcher, eastern bluebird, cedar waxwing, red-eyed vireo, ovenbird, indigo bunting, eastern towhee and chipping sparrow. American goldfinch can be seen feeding on the massive bull thistles at the edge of the forest.

Open sunup to sundown.
