birds of the oregon coast

Lush evergreen forests, picturesque coastal scenery, rugged cliffs, impressive sand dunes and vast sandy beaches await you along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, US Highway 101.

The Oregon coast has fully developed resort communities with every possible amenity to quiet coastal towns where the loudest sounds you'll hear are waves on the shoreline and seagulls and other costal birds overhead.

Bird watching on the lower Columbia River &
North Oregon Coast:

Astoria is centrally located along the banks of the Columbia River and seven miles from Pacific Ocean beaches, perfect in its natural beauty for birding. The north coast area is rich in dry and wetland birds from Bald Eagles to Sand Pipers, all can be easy viewed and enjoyed.

Bird watching at South Jetty, Columbia River. (SJCR):
This is one of Oregon's premier spots for finding rare and unusual birds. Almost completely surrounded by salt and fresh water as well as tidal marshes SJCR is an excellent place for spotting sea birds, shorebirds, and ducks. And it is a long point of land making it a good migrant trap.

Bird watching at Ecola State Park :

From the viewpoint: whales, sea lions, pelagic and shore birds. Bald Eagles and Peregrine Falcons nest in the park and can often be seen hunting sea birds here. Good view of Bird Rocks with a scope. Lots of coastal rainforest habitat. Good for forest owls.

Bird watching Haystack Rock, at Cannon Beach:

Nesting site for Tufted Puffins, Western Gulls, Pelagic Cormorants, and Pigeon Guillemots. No climbing! Please stay off the rock. While in Cannon Beach, be sure and check out the treatment ponds at the east end of second street. A viewing tower has been built and you can sometimes see very interesting birds in or around the ponds. Green Herons have nested there as well as Wood Ducks. When winter storms blow and during migrations are good times to look for other unusual birds.

Bird watching on The Oregon Dunes:

The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area provides 47 miles of ocean beaches, the Siuslaw and Umpqua rivers, 32 freshwater lakes, an abundance of streams, ponds and marshes, estuaries and salt marshes, grasslands and lush coastal forest.
