After a two-year effort to document the birds of Oceana County and identify the best local birding locations, we are thrilled to present our new publication!


About This Project

In 2015, The Oceana Conservation District initiated an effort to document the birds of Oceana County with the intent of publishing a birding guide for local residents and visiting birders that features birds of Oceana County as well as local birding hot spots. A project committee was formed to begin planning and compiling information for the publication. The project committee spent two years conducting bird surveys to provide additional records and to identify birding hot spots described in the book.

The purpose of A Birding Guide to Oceana County, Michigan is to promote birding in Oceana County. This publication is the first attempt to compile bird data for Oceana County and is meant to serve as a baseline document. The authors encourage all birders to help fill in gaps in the birding data by entering their sightings on eBird ( or reporting their observations to the Oceana Conservation District.

Books can be purchased for $12.50 at our office located at 1064 Industrial Park Drive in Shelby. You will soon be able to purchase the book from our website as well.
To celebrate the debut of our publication, we will be kicking off a year-long series of birding field trips in 2018! We plan to host a field trip to each of the identified birding hot spots during each season of the year. If you would like to sign up for any/all of the field trips, please respond to this email and ask to be added to our list of Oceana County birders. Beginner and experienced birders are welcome and invited to attend.
