Wildlife in Grays Harbor County
You may encounter lots of animals in Grays Harbor County: deer, eagles,
sandpipers and other shorebirds, sea lions, seals, ducks, otters, seagulls,
pelicans, great blue heron, butterflies, starfish, and anemones.

THE NORTH BEACH (Copalis, Pacific Beach, Moclips)
There's always something interesting to see on Sunset Beach below the Moclips
Ocean Cliff House: sand dollar shells, sandpiper birds, seagulls, crabs, clam
shells, seaweed, and driftwood.  The sunsets are awesome.

Eagles live in the cliffs above the beach at Copalis and Pacific Beach.  You may
see them scavenging a dead seal or sea lion that has washed up on the beach.

At an extreme low tide you can walk out and touch Copalis Rock.  The bottom 10
feet of the rock are covered in big purple and orange starfish, mussel shells,
and anemones.

At the Quinault National Fish Hatchery on the Moclips Highway, you can see
salmon hatchlings year round and hatchery personnel will take you on a tour.  
They describe the processing of the fish and sightings of bears attracted by the
fish.  From October to the spring, the adult salmon return to the hatchery.  On

GRAYS HARBOR
The Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge near Hoquiam with its mile long

OCEAN SHORES
Rent a comfortable, modern electric-powered boat from the Ocean Shores
Electric Boat Company on the south end of Ocean Shore's Grand Canal.  The
boats can be enclosed and heated against cold weather.  Explore the canals and
Duck Lake, where saw blue heron and seagulls.  Deer swim to the islands in the
middle of Duck Lake to give birth to their foals in safety.

Birds and seals can be seen at the southern end of Ocean Shores from the North
Jetty or Damon Point State Park.  We saw the cutest baby seal at this park,
lounging on a rock by the shore, waiting for its mother.

mouth to see ocean-going seabirds: albatross, skuas, petrels, etc.
