Lincoln City Bird Watching Clinic ~ Salishan Nature Trail
. Join us for a walk along Siletz Bay and on to the ocean beaches on the Salishan Nature Trail. Siletz Bay is a winter resting grounds for thousands of waterfowl including Northern Pintail, Green-winged Teal, American Wigeon, with the possibility of an Eurasian Wigeon. Bald Eagles often put on a show and Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets are always present. Meet in the west marketplace parking area at Salishan Resort. No prior birding experience is required. Binoculars and guidebooks will be provided. Most of this walk is on flat surfaces near parking so may be more appropriate than many ASLC trips for birders with limited mobility.

Annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC)

This is your chance to take part in the longest running "citizen science" project in the world. For the 119th year, the National Audubon Society is sponsoring the annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC), and we can boast three count circles in our area: Lincoln City CBC, Tillamook Bay CBC, and Yaquina Bay CBC.

Saturday, December 15th, Tillamook Bay CBC

Tillamook Bay is one of the oldest counts in Oregon, with the 2018-19 season being the 55th year. This year, teams will be arranged in advance. Please contact Jimmy Billstine for more information:

Sunday, December 16th, Lincoln City CBC

If you love bird watching, join us for breakfast at 6:30 at Sambo's, Lincoln City. You will be assigned to a team of field counters with a specific area to cover. All experience levels are welcome!

Field counters need to dress for Oregon coast weather. Mud boots or sturdy shoes are recommended. Bring your own optical equipment. You will also want to bring a lunch or something to snack on throughout the day, plus plenty of water. (Most sector leaders do not stop for lunch.)

If that sounds too strenuous, or you just don't have the full day to spend, you can participate as a backyard/feeder counter if you live in the Lincoln City area. Please contact dawn villaescusa for more information:

Saturday, December 30th, Yaquina Bay CBC

The Yaquina Bay CBC needs your help counting birds in the Yaquina Bay area on Sunday, December 30 from 7 AM to 4 PM with a social gathering and countdown to follow. The Yaquina Bay count circle extends from just north of Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area southward to Seal Rocks and eastward to Toledo. About half of the Count Circle is offshore so we are always in need of people who can identify seabirds.

This event is sponsored by the Yaquina Birders and Naturalists and we need your help to make it a successful count. If you are interested contact Dawn Harris at to sign up or to get more information.
