Bird watching is one of the fastest-growing recreational sports in the country. On the Oregon Coast, there are more than 450 species of birds that may be observed. Because the Oregon Coast is located within the Pacific Flyway, hundreds of migratory birds may be viewed during the four seasons of the year here. Choose from the North Coast, Central Coast, and South Coast areas, or visit all three regions.
Due to the increased popularity of birdwatching, the Oregon Coast Birding Trail was recently developed. For detailed descriptions of birds and the best places to view them along the Oregon Coast, see Oregon Coast Birding Trails. For a quick view of birding locations, see below.
