Shenandoah County Park


Elevation: 780 ft.

Shenandoah County Park consists of 65.5 acres of mixed woods and fields hosting numerous woodland birds. While walking along the with a one-mile paved loop trail, search for indigo bunting, American robin, chipping sparrow and fish crow along the edges of the wooded areas. Once inside the forest, listen for the familiar sounds of Carolina chickadee, tufted titmouse, Carolina wren, blue jay, northern cardinal, and eastern towhee. Careful inspection of the mixed deciduous forest should yield several less obvious finds such as white bird’s nest fungus, minute cones filled with small white spores resembling eggs in a bird’s nest. The neighboring fields host eastern tiger swallowtails and red-banded hairstreaks. Common whitetail dragonflies should also be spotted cruising past.
