Birding Locations in Oregon

Welcome to the Oregon Birding Site Guide.  Here you will find instructions for birding over 1000 locations within our state.  This guide gives DeLorme map pages, Google Earth kmls, geographic coordinates, Google Maps, and written descriptions on how to locate each birding site.  It also offers habitat information and gives the birder a taste of the kinds of birds that can be found at each location.  The sites are arranged by county and a map with all county sites is presented at the beginning of each page.   

In addition to being a site guide for birding the state, this web site strives to be a portal for all things related to Oregon birding.  Here you will find links to current bird sightings, local bird blogs, a calendar of birding events and field trips, and bird projects and surveys that need volunteer participation.  We hope this encourages you to visit many of the more distant areas of this state as well as participate in volunteer bird surveys.  This site is sponsored and maintained by the East Cascades Audubon Society based in Bend, Oregon.  However, it really is a joint effort by the Oregon birding community who keep the site relevant and up-to-date.

The low, moaning call of Newell's Shearwater led to its local name of 'A'o. Found only in Hawai'i, most of these small, endangered seabirds nest on the slopes and cliffs of Kaua'i. Small colonies also exist on Moloka'i, Maui, and the Big Island.
