I have never been there, but I have seen eagles on the beach (sitting on posts and pilings) between Gearhart and the Peter Iredale many times while fishing and razor clamming.
Interestingly, I've seen the most eagles on the beach in the vicinity of Camp Rilea.

Awesome birds up close.

So how did the Medford interview go?

Very occasionally. You'll actually see more Eagles along Highway 30 though. That sanctuary seems to be randomly placed to be out of the way, and not actually home to many Eagles. There are a couple of nests up in the trees nearby though, but I've never seen then occupied. That could simply be time of year or other factors though.

Interesting tidbit, there are now more mated Bald Eagle pairs along the Columbia River between Astoria and Portland then there was in the entire United States in 1990.

Thanks for asking, I haven't heard back yet, but they said it could take be a week before a decision is made, so I'm still holding out hope for the medford area, I like it there, it seems pretty mellow overall and so much to do outdoors, how's the humidity during the hot months? I've heard very dry which makes even 90's not bad plus it cools off nicely when the sun starts going down. One thing that I really like about area is that it's green enough without all the rain and plenty of beautiful shorts drives around. Anyways, thanks again

Usually it's not humid - you can get a sticky day here and there, but it's only humid by local standards, anyone from the south would laugh at calling it "humid." Portland has more humidity in the summer. It will stay mostly green during the year, although some of the grassy hills (generally the ones with a lot of oaks) will turn yellow and brown by late summer, although the first rains green them back up again.

But 100° is hot even when it is dry, and Medford averages between 8-12 days over 100° a summer and 50 days at 90° or above (the average high in July is 92° with the average June and August highs at 82°).

You could work in Medford and live in Ashland, which is a few minutes south of Medford on the I-5. It is a lovely town with charm and character.

Southern Oregon is dry enough to make a swamp cooler practical AC in the summer. The hottest days sometimes get into single digit relative humidity.

Swamp Coolers do work in Medford. I was there for a convention and they used one for the hall.

This brings an answer to the question as the two area are so dissimilar you start to believe the OP was a troll. Medford is hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Dry most of the time. Astoria on the other hand is mild, foggy, and wet most of the year. But there are some great days there. The people are dissimilar also. Farmers and City Dwellers, with mostly California Escapees in Medford. Fisherman, Loggers, and Outdoors types in Astoria.
