Birding along the Oregon Coast can be a casual affair or a lifelong passion, as there are hundreds of species showing the remarkable evolutionary diversity created as ecosystems collide along Oregon's complex Coastline.
This website from the Federal Wildlife Administration
showcases Oregon Coast bird santuaries where the Oregon Coast Birding Trail
website will gives you a guide to species you'll find along the Southern, Central, and Northern parts of the Oregon Coast.
Personally, I'm a fan of the Puffin - stout sea birds that nest in cliffs and have a large, strong orange beek used to crush shellfish for dinner. Also the Osprey which tends to live atop large tree snags (dead trees) in huge nests.
Birding enthusiasts will also want to consider a trip to the Klamath Basin Birding Trail.
