Checking eBird's list of Oregon counties ranked by species recorded so far in 2019, Jackson County is sixth at 127 (I suspect the American Redstart hasn't been confirmed yet although obviously it will be).
Ahead of Jackson Co. are Lane (150), Tillamook (136), Lincoln (133), Coos (130), and Benton (129). Multnomah is 7th at 126.
What do all of these counties other than Jackson have in common ? All but Benton and Multnomah border the Pacific Ocean (thus many gull and shorebird species on their lists). Benton has the massive Finley NWR and the Philomath Sewage Ponds, and Multnomah has a little creek called the Columbia River.
Multnomah County tops the checklist rankings with 611, followed by Lane at 567, Benton at 489 and Washington at 327. Lincoln, Tillamook and Jackson are close with 206, 204 and 203 respectively.
Jackson County ranks 14th all-time on eBird with 313 species. Lane tops the list at 399.
