Birds are often the most visible wildlife found at Richmond National Battlefield Park. Many bird species rely on the park's combination of field, forest, and wetland for food and shelter. For example, bluebirds prefer open fields with scattered trees for nesting, while red-headed woodpeckers prefer forested areas with many dead trees, where they can search for insects.
