Bird Watching Cannon Beach
Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach

Haystack Rock is a famous constituent of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Best viewed at low tide, the base of this 235-foot monolith constitutes a rich, rock-strewn intertidal zone. The Haystack Rock Awareness Program interprets invertebrates in spring and summer. From April to August, the rock is the coast's best spot to observe tufted puffin. It also is a home to breeding western gull, pelagic cormorant, pigeon guillemot, and black oystercatcher. The greater scaup and surf scoter appear in winter, while the harlequin duck, peregrin falcon, and brown pelican are seen in summer.

From Seaside, take Highway 101 south and take the 2nd Street exit, proceed to Hemlock Street, turn south and use the public parking lot on the corner of Hemlock and Gower streets. A public walkway across from the parking area leads to the shoreline and Haystack Rock.
