Common Birds at Hollywood Cemetery
Bird Icon

The cemetery’s natural areas – including open spaces, shrubs, hedgerows, thickets, trees – and its close proximity to the James River are magnets for both resident and migratory birds. More than 100 different species can be seen over the course of a year, and dozens of species nest within cemetery grounds, making this one of Richmond’s “hot spots” for birding.

Access a checklist for a listing of species reported at the cemetery. Check out our self-guided ID tool, with many "fun facts" derived from Cornell Lab's All About Birds and photos from local photographers, to identify some of the most common bird species.
