The fauna of Jamestown is diverse and plentiful. On an average day one can witness birds of various kinds and sizes, common and rare, majestic and plain. The animal wildlife, although also diverse, most often prefers not to be seen, but the observant visitor may spot rabbit, squirrel, deer, wild turkey, muskrat, turtles and snakes of various kinds, and on occasion rare animals such as river otter and even mink.
