Bird Watching ~ Morro Bay


Grab your binoculars and start your bird watching adventure in Wine Coast Country! San Luis Obispo County has an array of bird species to follow, from Pelicans and Long-Billed Curlews to Finches and Sparrows.  Many of the birds live here year-round, while other species visit during their annual migrations along the coast.  Trails and parks are a great place to watch our feathered friends, or you can always take up a hike along the coastline for some shorebird action.  No matter what region you’re visiting, bird watching abounds in Wine Coast Country!

Morro Bay is one of the top-ten bird watching sites in the U.S. and offers various bird watching locations and exciting visitor field trips.  Don't miss the annual Bird Watching Festival in January where guests participate in lectures, explore vendor displays and fun tours.
