When Tillamook Bay started it was the only one on the coast. Gold Beach started a year or so later and ran into the mid-1970s. By then Columbia Estuary, Coos Bay and Yaquina Bay were operating.

Portland was the first CBC but like many before the 1940s it was not held every year.

There are a couple of articles in Oregon Birds 14(4) about these very early counts. Access via the OBA web site.

For reasons now lost to time, Bill Thackaberry took the Count from there and compiled the second ORTB in December 1965. He compiled through December 1985 — 21 years. I started in 1986 and complied 32 years, through 2017. Except for the first year ORTB has always been run on the first Saturday of the Count Period ……. the tradition continues!
