Welcome to the Oregon Coast Birding Trail Website!

In the colored links above you will find a complete birding guide to the Oregon coast broken down into seven PDF files. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (www.adobe.com) to view them.

We invite you to come and see the vast variety of birding opportunities along the scenic seascapes of the Pacific Northwest. Whether you make your trip a one day adventure or a week or more vacation you will be impressed by the wonders of the Oregon Coast Birding Trail.

The introduction section gives you more information on the trail along with important birding ethics, site description abbreviations, a legend to the icons, safety tips and more. Our sponsors have a special section and we encourage you to support them when making plans for your trip.

The coast is divided into four sections that list 173 sites, numbered from north to south. The guide includes maps, site descriptions, directions, and a listing of the birds you may see, along with site services and facilities. Finally, a birding checklist shows the 250 birds most likely to be detected and the ease of detecting them.
