Local birder Jerry Uhlman first wrote his authoritative A Birder’s Guide to Metropolitan Richmond in 1998. He revised it in 2009, and it remains one of the most accessible and handy guides to have with you while out searching for birds in Central Virginia’s public greenspaces. Most of the information in’s Birding section is adapted with permission from Uhlman’s great book, which can be purchased here. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ Birding and Wildlife Trail was also a invaluable resource in compiling this information.
