Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail – Dan River Loop

Virginia Bird and Wildlife Trail

On the eastern edge of Halifax County the Dan, Banister and Staunton
Rivers converge to form John H. Kerr Reservoir (Buggs Island Lake).
These great rivers are home to abundant wildlife, providing a fantastic opportunity
for exploration and observation. Check this collection of sites along
the Dan River and the upper reservoir for flocks of ring-billed gulls
joined occasionally by other gulls. Scan the forest edge carefully for a
fox sparrow or hermit thrush quietly sitting still. As the weather
turns colder, explore the snow-covered marshy backwaters for rusty
blackbirds or lie on your back and watch red-tailed hawks sail lazily
