Lincoln City and County’s Majestic Bird Species

Bald Eagle: Look for bald eagles in the trees near Devil’s Lake and Siletz Bay. Thankfully, these beautiful birds were removed from the endangered species list in 2007!  

Brown Pelican: The endangered brown pelicans, which are known for their dark color and ability to plunge into the water to catch food, can be seen spring-fall on Siletz Bay and the ocean.

Bufflehead: These black-and-white ducks with purple-green throats can be seen diving deep into the water to find plants and fish to feed around Siletz Bay and on Devil’s Lack.

Dusky Canada Goose: During the winter you may spot these migrating Canadian geese with brown bodies, long black necks, and black “caps” near Salishan Spa & Golf Resort.

Great Blue Heron: If you’re around Siletz Bay you may sneak a peek of one of these big, blue-grey birds with long legs perfect for hanging out in saltwater and spotting their prey.

Great White Egret: These formidable herons with black legs and orange bills are also often found around Siletz Bay’s calm, salt waters.

Osprey: The odds are good that you’ll see an Osprey if you book one of our beach condo rentals. Lincoln City is home to many of these hawks with brown wings and white bellies spotted around Devil’s Lake, Siletz Bay, Siletz River, and more areas south of the city.  

Pelagic Cormorant: You can spot these birds any time of year. They inhabit a large, local colony 10 miles south of Lincoln City at Cape Foulweather.

Tufted Puffin: These puffins are difficult to spot, as they spend winters at sea and nest on rocks near the coast. Your best bet is visiting Newport’s Oregon Coast Aquarium.

Western Gull: Like the Pelagic Cormorant, the Oregon Coast’s largest permanent population of the Western Gull is found in and around Lincoln City. Just watch out, as they love to scavenge.

Western Sandpiper: The odds are also good that you’ll see this bird with a slim, dark bill and dark legs while visiting Lincoln City. They are Oregon’s Coast most common migrating shorebird.

Western Snowy Plover: These shorebirds can be spotted nesting around the dry mudflats and expansive, sandy beaches of the Central and Southern Oregon Coast.

Wood Duck: If you’re taking a stroll around Devil’s Lake you may notice these colorful, striking ducks. You might even spot the “nest boxes” that people have installed for them.

Whether you’re an avid birder, or just thinking of trying bird watching for the first time, Lincoln City is a great place to spend a few days enjoying nature. You’ll also find many other fascinating types of wildlife and marine life as you explore the shores and inland areas.
