Bird Watching Newport
Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge

This NWR consists of some of the most picturesque estuarine habitat along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway. On both sides of Highway 101, blanched, skeletal trees thrust from the estuary, relics of a time when the salt marsh was diked to provide pasture for dairy cows. Red-tailed hawks, bald eagles, and other raptors can frequently be observed roosting at the top of these snags. A variety of estuary-dependant birds, including the great blue heron, great egret, and numerous waterfowl species, can be seen foraging in the tidal waters.

Siletz Bay NWR was established to protect salt marsh, brackish marsh, tidal sloughs, mudflats, and coniferous and deciduous forestland. The primary ecological goal for the refuge is to allow the salt marsh to return to its natural, tidal state.

Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge is located just south of Lincoln City, along Highway 101.
