Natural and largely undeveloped, the south coast of Oregon offers a wonderful birding environment, where wildlife seldom encounters people.

The highest density of offshore rocks and islands, habitat for 1.2 million nesting seabirds and protected as part of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge, is seen along this stretch of the coast. And the area identified as America’s Wild Rivers Coast begins in Port Orford.

For a comprehensive guide to the birds in this area, go to the Oregon Coast Birding Trail’s site. The coastal trail is the second major project endorsed by the Oregon Birding Trails Working Group, which received its initial funding from the Oregon Parks and Recreational Department and the Audubon Society of Portland.

Port Orford is well positioned in the coastal trail, offering central, easy access to the Wild Rivers Loop, Coquille River Loop and the Cape Arago Loop. It has 13 official birding sites in the area, from Floras Lake down to Humbug Mountain. It also has a very active local Audubon society: Kalmiopsis Audubon. Check out their website for more information on local birding.
