Destination: Boiler Bay–Seawatch Open House
Hosts: Dave Irons and Shawneen Finnegan
When: Saturday, April 29, 2023 from 7AM – 2PM
We invite you to join us for a unique “open house” seawatching experience at Boiler Bay State Wayside in Lincoln County. Boiler Bay is widely regarded as the best site for coastal headland birding in all of Oregon and perhaps the entire west coast. If you’ve always been mystified by how some birders readily identify flyby seabirds from shore and tally some of the incredible counts that get reported, this is your chance to come see how it’s done.
Join OBA! Membership in OBA brings you:
- Oregon Birds, OBA’s biannual journal with news updates, status and identification of Oregon’s birds, stories about birding, and photos of rare Oregon birds.
- Annual Meetings held at some of Oregon’s top birding spots include keynote speakers and local birding.
- Field Trips for OBA members led by expert birders at locations all around Oregon.

Racism and Inclusion
OBA joins other birding and conservation organizations across the country in condemning the racism that endangers the lives of people of color in the United States as they go birding or just go about their daily lives. Read our statement on racism and inclusion in birding.
