WildSpring Guest Habitat is the first official birding site in Port Orford for the new Oregon Coast Birding Trail.
WildSpring is available for guests to explore the grounds and birdwatch at any time during their stay. We have binoculars you can borrow in the Guest Hall.
It is open to visiting birders 7 days a week (unless we're closed - from time to time), from 10am to 5pm. Please call the office before coming to make arrangements, and use the intercom in the checkin gazebo in the entrance to let us know you're here. We'll leave a property map for you showing the birding areas. Please be sure to respect the peace, quiet and privacy of the cabin area for our guests.

Oregon Coast Birding Trail
This is a self-guided driving tour highlighting more than 150 prime birding destinations along the Oregon coast. The trail will trace more than 700 miles of coastal scenery, with almost 400 species of birds.
The coastal trail is the second major project endorsed by the Oregon Birding Trails Working Group, which received its initial funding from the Oregon Parks and Recreational Department and the Audubon Society of Portland.
Port Orford is well positioned in the new coastal trail, offering central, easy access to the Wild Rivers Loop, Coquille River Loop and the Cape Arago Loop.
