p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Tufted Puffins, etc. on Oregon Coast


Spent two mornings at the base of Haystack Rock located at Cannon Beach, Oregon. My first opportunity to get some shots of Puffins which I had only previously seen at the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport. Conditions typical for the Oregon Coast with occasional drizzle early the first morning then ground fog. The second morning no drizzle and intermittent ground fog afforded opps for a few clear shots of the puffins and friends on the Rock.

A couple more shots of these crazy looking birds. BTW, the puffins are high enough up that to get a decent angle I resorted to the 2X TC remembering to stop down the lens a bit for sharpness.

Substitution please

Should have posted this in the beginning..

Here is Haystack Rock. If you zoom in a bit on the top third of the rock you might see the number of birds hanging around...

Very nice Mike. I take it from your use of the 2X that you are not allowed to approach to close?

Now that looks like a place to watch the sunset and stroll the beach! Cool place to be Mike and even better if you can find puffins hanging out. #1 shot shows a fluffy juvi of some type top center of image? Looks like a nice mix of birds to observe and fairly concentrated. Good work again with the 2x!

You can get closer but you lose the angle. Those birds are way up there. 100 ft or so!!

thanks for looking

Hey Mike,

I had heard there were tufted puffins here on the West Coast somewhere but much further North than NorCal. Nice to see someone post some puffins from the opposite coast.
There has to be a good location to get some GREAT closeups of these guys here on the West Coast. I'll continue researching!! One of these days !!

really nice job given the conditions of a bird I've never seen posted here before. Lots of the Atlantic Variety but none of the Tufted. Your the first

Your landscape shots are fantastic. You did a super job on these too and really great job on the tufted with the 2x

Mike, don't cut him any slack! He must think you are a world traveler Geeez does he even know who you are, ANT................helloooooooooooooo

I am worried about him, Atlantic and Pacific are so close together I guess it is easy to get confused.

Nice set Mike and congrats on the tufted, I've never seen them either on this forum. I missed my puffin trip in Maine this year, but I'll get them next July for sure. Nice shots of the rock too.

Yes, fog is frequently a problem on the OR coast. I got lucky especially the second morning. No bright sun really but at least little ground fog.

thanks for looking
