Jackson Woods attracts an amazing number of migratory bird species. In the spring birders with their binoculars and long camera lenses are everywhere.
The park has some year round birds also, including Red-Winged Blackbirds and Mallards. Dragonflies and butterflies hover near the pond in summer.
Deer, squirrels, turtles, and snakes are all found in the park, and a managed cat colony (all spayed and neutered) makes its home near the Edgewater East apartments.
