The southernmost 25 miles or so of Oregon’s coastline have several productive birding sites, most of which can be checked fairly quickly. Be especially alert for Elegant Terns and Allen’s Hummingbirds in summer and Tropical Kingbirds in autumn, as these species become less likely as you travel farther north.
This chapter contains information about birding around the following areas: Pistol River State Park, Samuel H. Boardman State Park, Harris Beach State Park, Chetco Point Park, Azalea Park, South Jetty of the Chetco River. Specialty birds in these areas include: Red-shouldered Hawk; Elegant Tern; Tufted Puffin and Allen’s Hummingbird.
