Birds And Birders Flock To The Oregon Coast

The Parasitic Jaeger is just one of many shorebirds.

It's a regular feature of hanging out by the ocean: the cries of the gulls.  They get most of the attention (volume helps), but there are many other interesting birds to see where land and water meet. 

And those birds will be celebrated and observed when the 31st annual Oregon Shorebird Festival convenes in the Bandon area on Labor Day weekend. 

Attendees will grab a variety of devices to get close looks at the birds. 

Photographer and author Paul Bannick will be one of the presenters at the festival.  He and Bandon's Harv Shubothe visit with details of festival plans.
