    Bird Watching

    One of Georgia's best bird watching sites, it features mainly hardwood forests on the bank of the Oconee River, Beaverdam WMA offers miles of trails for both breeding species and migrants. Many of the trails are driveable and those that aren’t are easy walking or biking. Key birds: Swainson’s and Prothonotary Warblers, Blue Heron, Kingfisher Louisiana Waterthrush, Common Ground-Dove, migrant warblers, and wintering sparrows.


    Native wildlife includes White-tailed deer, wild turkeys, gray squirrels, bobcats, wood ducks, and non native coyotes and wild boar.
