Habitat and Birds
From the Face Rock Viewpoint you can see the area’s most famous offshore rock, which resembles a face gazing skyward. Nearby are a series of islands called “Cat and Kittens,” part of Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge.
From the top of the bluff, scan the ocean for Rhinoceros Auklet, White-winged and Surf Scoter, Pigeon Guillemot, Harlequin Duck, and Pelagic and Brandt’s Cormorant. Tufted Puffin nest on Face Rock. Black Turnstone, Black Oystercatcher and Surfbird use the lower portion of the rock.
