Birds of Oregon

Almost 500 species of birds can be found in Oregon. 

A wide variety of birding habitat can be found along the Oregon coast, the Cascades, and Willamette Valley.  Follow Oregon Birding Trails to prime birding hot spots.

Oregon 2020 Project - Oregon State University is working with citizen volunteers to establish baseline information about the state's bird populations. Learn how to help with this project at the Oregon 2020 website.
