Chapter Announces Completion of Oregon State Birding Guide
East Cascades Audubon Society (OR)
"Birding Oregon" is an online birding guide packed with information on more than 1000 birding locations throughout the state. Each location contains:
- DeLorme Map information
- geographic coordinates
- Google Map & Google Earth links
- detailed directions to each site
- description of the kind of birding to be experienced onsite
- additional links to resources such as bird lists, site brochures, or alternative activities that are site-specific
To access the site, go to http://birdingoregon.info/ and click on the county of your choice. Don't miss the additional resource information below the site guide map. Here you will find information about local blogs, birding projects, birding news, Oregon birding organizations, and all kinds of birding information that will help improve your birding experience and birding skills.
In the future, the Chapter plans to integrate the site with birdnotes.net, which promises to provide the user with access to additional utilities that are useful to many birders. Other items to be added include species finding guides and "best sites" listings that will help those who have limited time to bird a particular county. The Web page is designed to be a living document that will continually change as Oregon birding changes. Input from the general birding public will be used to fine tune and add to the overall document. Suggestions for additions, deletions, or changes will be welcome.
