Birding Destinations and Resources
With nearly 400 bird species across the state, Oregon is a magnificent place to explore the natural world. Whether you’re birding in Portland or taking a road trip around the state, we have resources for you to visit incredible places within Oregon’s forest, desert, mountain, grassland, coastal, and urban habitat.
From our very own wildlife sanctuary in NW Portland, to Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, to our five marine reserves along the coast, we hope you enjoy all that Oregon has to offer.
Bird Alliance of Oregon’s Nature Store features the best selection of binoculars and spotting scopes in Oregon and SW Washington, in addition to field guides, gifts, toys, backyard birding supplies and more.
