A Birder's Guide to Virginia's Historic James River explores over thirty birding hotspots along the James River, from Craney Landfill at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay to famous "Warbler Road" in the Blue Ridge foothills. The guidebook gives colorful descriptions and detailed directions to each site along the way.

Early explorers visited Virginia's historic James River and established America's first and second English settlements along its banks. The James was the home to huge plantations during our country's colonial years and was the site of many bloody battles during the War Between the States. A Birder's Guide to Virginia's Historic James River brings birding and history together along one of America's most historic waterways.
