Birdwatching in the James river Park

In addition to the common migratory birds that visit the Park, visitors can often catch glimpses of Bald Eagles, herons, ospreys, ducks, owls, and more. A good viewing spot is at the edge of the river, and the best time to catch them is in the early morning. Find them first by listening, and then following the sounds.

Where to Birdwatch in the Park

Watch the Live Osprey Cam

Richmond’s favorite osprey couple, Maggie & Walker returned again this year to their favorite perch in the James River. Every Spring osprey return to the area to lay eggs and hatch their young. They nest between the T-Pot and Manchester Bridges.

This year we worked with Wild Streaming to install an upgraded camera – to better view these magnificent birds. See the stream below.
