There are a number of widgets below. The first two widgets show RARE BIRDS. .

  1. The upper one is for REGIONAL RARITIES, within about 40 miles of Eugene.
  2. The lower one lists STATEWIDE RARITIES

One of the best features of these two widgets is that they show reported rare birds even if those reports have not yet been approved by expert eBird reviewers. Thus, the reports can be as fresh as the latest checklist data submitted from the field - which could literally be only a few minutes before you loaded this page.

ADDITIONAL WIDGETS are located further down this page. Those cover various regions around the Southern Willamette Valley and several along the central Oregon Coast. These are great if you are planning to go to the coast and want to know what birds have been seen most recently. These widgets list ALL bird sightings reported to and approved by eBird reviewers within the radius circle defined.
The regions are described at the top of each widget. All of them are set to provide the most recent two weeks of reports.

REGIONAL RARITIES

  1. Clicking on the location name gives you a list of all birds reported (not just rarities) at that LOCATION during the last two weeks.
  2. Clicking on the "+" sign at the far right end of each line will produce a box with links to a map(1st icon) and the full checklist (4th icon) by the observer who reported the bird.
  3. The species name can no longer be clicked. Programmers at eBird.org have redone the entire eBird website, so this aspect of these widgets no longer works.

STATEWIDE RARITIES

The next two widgets cover the most recent two weeks of sightings in the Southern Willamette Valley

Further down the page are widgets covering the last two weeks for Florence, Yachats, Waldport and Newport.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Clicking on the location name gives you a list of all birds reported (not just rarities) at that LOCATION during the last two weeks.
  2. The species name and the little "+" sign can no longer be clicked in these small regional widgets. Programmers at eBird.org have redone the entire eBird website, so this aspect of these widgets no longer works. For a workable go-round for this see the instructions below the Eugene Area box.

Remember to REFRESH THE PAGE to begin with a fresh widget, or with your mouse inside the widget right-click and select "RELOAD"
