This blog is written by three enthusiastic birders from Sweden, Jon Jörpeland, Rasmus Elleby and Jacob Rudhe. We’ll be watching and counting the spring migration of seabirds from Boiler Bay, Lincoln County in Oregon from 13th of April until the 5th of May. All of us grew up in Stockholm, Sweden and have known each other since our early teens when we started to watch birds in general and migration in particular.
Last year plans were made for a trip to watch the migration of seabirds along the West Coast of North America. The choice fell on Boiler Bay, one of the best places in Oregon to watch migrating seabirds on their journey towards their breeding grounds further up north. We hope that this blog will inspire more people to discover seabird migration and further highlight the huge potential of the Oregon coastline.
