Birding in Morro Bay and the Central Coast

Want a bird-watching vacation?

San Luis Obispo ranks in the Audubon Society’s national top ten. Over 400 bird species sighted here, including Peregrine Falcons, great blue herons (Morro Bay heron rookery) brown pelicans, California condors (Los Padres National Forest), sandhill and other cranes at Carrizo Plain. Morro Bay bird sanctuary protects over two dozen endangered species.

Morro Bay estuary is on the Pacific Migratory Bird Flyway and its waterways and mud flats are surrounded by grass and brush covered hills, home to oysters, shellfish, white halibut, perch and smelt. Not only do the birds go wild for this feeding habitat, John James Audubon would have gone out of his mind.

La Serena Inn - The Bird Friends Inn of Morro Bay

Welcome to the La Serena Inn! Our warm and inviting hotel sits just blocks from the ocean in picturesque Morro Bay. The town itself is the perfect quintessential beach destination. Little shops line the quaint streets that meander down to the bay. Boats and paddle boarders drift past as children dance dreamily up and down the shore.
