In Weir’s day, goats, horses, oxen, and geese were a few of the domestic animals that inhabited the farm. Though the original barns remain, visitors are now treated to seeing a diversity of wildlife, rather than farm animals here. Wildlife habitats on the property include open meadows, hardwood forests, vernal wetland areas, streams, a pond, rocky ridges, and gardens.
What to Watch for:
Weir Farm is an excellent place for birdwatching. At least 65 species of birds have been identified, 38 of which were confirmed or suspected to be breeding in the park. Weir Farm NHS has been set up in eBird as a birding "hotspot." You can help the park bolster bird data by adding your bird observations to eBird when you visit. You can also see a list of birds seen at Weir Farm on eBird.
