Birding all year-round

Life is rich where trees and shorelines meet

Deep water and permanent marshes are found in the Upper Klamath. Habitat includes Klamath, Williamson, Wood, Sprague, and Lost Rivers;  Upper Klamath, Clear and Tule Lakes, many smaller deep wetlands and permanent marshes.  Fish eating species such as grebes,pelicans, gulls, terns and diving ducks use these wetlands.  The vegetation growing in these wetlands (primarily cattail and bulrush stands which are also called “tules”) provide habitat for rails, white-faced ibis, egrets, herons, yellow-headed black birds to name only a few.
