Langlois is located near the northern border of Curry County. It’s 13.5 miles south of Bandon and 40 miles north of Gold Beach. Cruising the streets of this tiny town can reveal some good birds. There are a couple of good roads to take west out of town. From central Langois at the junction of Highway 101 and Main Street, head north 0.2 mile and turn left (west) onto 1st Street and drive into a marshy area. Also from central Langlois at the junction of Highway 101 and Main Street, head south 0.3 mile and turn right (west) onto Kerber Lane. In 62ft turn left onto Allen Boice Drive which will also access the marshy area west of town. Hwy 124 can be taken east of town to access some forest species. From central Langlois at the junction of Highway 101 and Main Street, head south 0.4 mile and turn left (east) onto Floras Creek Road/County Road #124.Directions
Habitat and Birds
The marshy area west of town is good for herons, Marsh Wren, and Virginia Rail. The town itself has produced several good vagrants. Tropical Kingbird, Sprague’s Pipit, Yellow-throated Warbler, and Rose-breasted Grosbeak have all been seen here. Red-shouldered Hawk can sometimes be found on the outskirts. Two Ross’s Geese showed up here in November 2009.
