Join us for a weekend of birding in Curry and Coos Counties during our Birding Blitz from Thursday, June 1 to Sunday, June 4.
For lovers of coastal and coast range birding alike, Curry and Coos Counties should be lots of fun! Southern Oregon is considered some of the best coastal birding in the state. Who knows what Northern California oddities might show up during our Blitz?
Itinerary and Registration
The headquarters for the Curry and Coos County Blitz will be split between Charleston and Port Orford, Oregon. We will meet each morning or preceding evening to assign areas, coordinate efforts, and exchange information.

On the mornings of June 2-4, we will break into groups and count birds in and near assigned Oregon2020 Hotspot Squares. Teams can spend the rest of the day chasing rarities or exploring interesting looking habitats, or even just sitting with a scope by the ocean.
This will be a free event. However, participants will be responsible for their own accommodations and meals. We recommend booking accommodations at nearby lodging and camping as early as possible.
