Oregon2020 is pleased to announce our second year of exciting County Blitzes! This year we will be surveying the following FIVE counties (click on the links for additional county-specific information):

Jackson County (May 19-22) – in partnership with the Mountain Bird Festival
Hood River County (May 25-27)
Tillamook County (June 3-5)
Umatilla County (June 16-19)
Jefferson County (June 24-26)

This year’s County Birding Blitzes cover nearly all corners of the state.
Teams of volunteer birders will count birds within assigned areas throughout the county. Count as many birds in as many places as you can, because the Oregon2020 team will enter all the data into eBird for you! For a detailed description of the blitz process, visit our “County Birding Blitz” page.

Each county promises a unique suite of exciting species for every birder. From birding the Tillamook county coastline, to high-elevation specialties atop Mount Hood and Jefferson, to the unique ecosystems of southern Oregon… there’s a bird for everyone at our blitzes!

**REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN**. Please register as soon as possible so we know how many participants to expect at each blitz. During registration you can inform us if you’d like to meet Friday night (to get an early start Saturday), or have preferred birding areas.

We invite you to join us for one or both days, and in one, two, or all of the blitzes. We’ve selected counties that have relatively sparse breeding season data in eBird. Come help us fill in the gaps!
