Habitat and Birds

Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area (YHONA) was designated as a Globally Important Bird Area in 1997 by the American Bird Conservancy because of its many nesting seabirds including Western Gulls, Common Murres, Pigeon Guillemots, Brandt’s Cormorants, and Pelagic Cormorants. YHONA was also designated a State Important Bird Area by the Audubon Society of Portland.
