Follow the Spring Bird Migration
The Mt Jefferson Loop of the Oregon Cascades will be a great place to start your Birding adventures in Oregon. The spring bird migration has begun and it’s time to choose a member inn of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild as your home base when exploring the Mt. Jefferson Loop of the Oregon Cascades Birding Trails. We might suggest taking a day trip out from a Willamette Vally B&B. Or spend the night in Sisters, Oregon, before looping back.
Mt. Jefferson, Oregon’s second highest peak, is bordered by dry sagebrush and juniper flats and dense forested corridors. Harlequin Duck reaches it highest density here and the high mountain lakes host typically east-side species. You’ll find bird-rich riparian zones along major rivers like the Metolius and Deschutes.
Eleven species of Woodpeckers nest between the Santiam and McKenzie Passes.
When your journey ends, your bags are unpacked, and you’re scrolling through your vacation photos you will reminisce on memories of great accommodations, food, conversation and birding in Oregon.
Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is ready to share Oregon with you: it’s environment, culture, and heritage. Combine gracious hospitality with ambiance at an inspected and approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member Inn.
