Sea Bird Count

When migrating seabirds stop along the Oregon coast to nest and raise their young, it’s a prime opportunity for scientists to count them. See some of Oregon’s more colorful visitors, including cormorants and common murres, as Field Guide follows scientists who take photos of the birds from high in a helicopter.
