A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Wintergreen


A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Wintergreen
with an introduction to the area and to other local wildlife

by Marshall Faintich

The Wintergreen area is the 15-mile long Rockfish River Valley and the surrounding mountains in Nelson County, Virginia, located about 30 miles southwest of Charlottesville. This area includes the Wintergreen Resort community, the Rockfish Valley Trail, the Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch, and the northern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Rockfish Valley Trail is part of the Thomas Jefferson Loop of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail system. Reliable birders have documented more than 200 species of birds in the area, and this 336 page guide has photographs of almost all of them, along with details about when and where to look for them. Marshall Faintich is the official photographer and the senior birding editor for the Rockfish Valley Trail.

“Dr. Faintich’s collection of photos and species occurrence data represents a remarkable addition to our knowledge of the avifauna of Virginia's Blue Ridge and western Piedmont.”— David Spears, Past-President, Virginia Society of Ornithology
