Backyard Birding Information

Backyard Bird Lists

We are presenting three bird lists (pdf file) from the yards/backyards of WHAS members. We would welcome additional lists from others. These will be of general interest and will also help those who are new to birding or new to this area have an idea of what they might expect to see in their own yards.

While our website does have bird lists for Cowlitz County, Wahkiakum County, and Lake Sacajawea, birds from individual yards will be much more restricted. This three lists represent two residential yards in Longview neighborhoods and one fairly rural yard in Rose Valley. But we have a wide variety of “yard” habitats in Cowlitz and Wahkiakum counties that will result in different assemblages of birds. As we get more lists, there will be more kinds of environments represented.

If you have a bird list for your yard and would like to add it to this website, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Names will be used only with permission, along with a generalized location; Addresses will not be used on the web site.
