Oregon Coast Birding Trail - Heceta Head Lighthouse State Scenic Viewpoint

  • Address:
    Heceta Head Lighthouse
    Oregon Coast OR 97439

Where Cape Creek meets the Pacific Ocean, Heceta Head Lighthouse and scenic viewpoint is an excellent location to search for the different types of seabirds that nest and migrate along the Oregon Coast. In the waters see hundreds of Western Gull bathe and along the Sitka spruce forest lining the path up to the lighthouse see close views of Wrentit, Song and White-crowned Sparrow, Red Crossbill, Varied Thursh and Wilson’s and Oregon-crowned Warbler. Drive further along the coast and stop at any of the 173 birding hotspots. Don’t forget your binoculars and Oregon Coast Birding Trail Guide.
