It’s the microclimate at the Siletz Bay Wildlife Refuge

weather

A lot of people now are so insulated from the weather, they haven’t learned its habits. Going from house to car to work indoors to a car to the house means people don’t experience weather like fishermen, landscapers, utility linemen or Kayak Rental Operators.

They don’t notice it can foggy at one place on the Oregon Coast and Sunny two (2) miles away. That is the case at the Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Due to the massive amount of water in the Refuge, the weather is normally clear and sunny.

Wildlife

bird_1_300

Siletz Bay is one of the numerous estuaries located along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway. On either side of Highway 101, scorched skeleton trees jut forth from the estuary and are reminiscent of a time when the salt marsh was diked for pasture.

You may see Great Egret -It is a large, white bird that looks like a heron, but slightly smaller. It has an “S” shaped neck and a long, sharp bill. You can observe it standing still in the marshy water, waiting and watching for prey. If you get too close, a great egret will fly away. It winters along the central-to-southern Oregon coast and South America.

1-blue heron

A variety of estuarine-dependent birds including great blue heron, Red-tailed hawks, bald eagles, and other raptors can often be seen roosting at the top of these snags; and many species of waterfowl can be seen foraging in the tidally influenced waters.

Wildlife counted last year were: 100 Brown Pelicans, 5,000 waterfowl, 1,000 shorebirds, and 50 Caspian Terns. Occasionally, usually due to large schools of anchovy entering the bay, huge pulses of gulls, pelicans, and other species swarm into the bay to make use of the bountiful resources.

bird2

Other wading birds use the bay and there is a small heron rookery on the refuge. Virginia Rail and Sora make use of the freshwater / brackish wetlands and tidal marsh / meadow-nesting species such as Savannah Sparrow, Marsh Wren, and Common Yellowthroat are abundant.

1-eagle

A diversity of raptors such as Osprey, Northern Harrier, Bald Eagle, and Red-tailed Hawk are commonly observed hunting prey within the marshes and mudflats. 

The Siletz Bay and River system support large runs of anadromous fish including Chinook and Coho salmon, cutthroat trout, and steelhead. Juvenile salmonids will benefit from several planned tidal marsh restoration.

pelican

Wildlife using the refuge include brown pelicans (endangered species), bald eagles (threatened species), peregrine falcons, Aleutian, and dusky Canada geese, waterfowl, wading birds, shorebirds, and neotropical
