Bird List

by Lori LeCount and Inn guests


One of our recent guests, Glenn Olson, Vice President Executive Director of Audubon California donated his copy of The Sibley Guide to Birds to the inn and encouraged us to start a bird list. Above is one of the first birds we saw at Ocean Wilderness Inn, the Stellar's Jay (photo courtesy of Nature's Pics). It is the provincial bird of British Columbia. We were told that each winter the jays try to migrate, get 1/2 way across the Strait of Juan de Fuca and then turn back. Likely the story is untrue (Sibley's is silent on the topic), but still charming.
So here we make a start of the bird list:
Crow, Northwestern
Duck, Mallard
Eagle, Bald
Goose, Canada
Gull
Heron, Great Blue
Hummingbird, Rufous
Jay, Stellar's
Loon, Pacific
Peafowl, Common
Quail, California
Raven, Common
Robin
Swallow
Vulture, Turkey
Woodpecker
