Whether you are an experienced birder or a beginning birdwatcher hoping to learn more about our local feathered friends, the Washington Coast is the place to be. There have been over 300 species of birds spotted on the Long Beach Peninsula and Willapa bay, with an estimated 300,000 visiting every year.
