Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex

Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex Review

As many as 1,000 bald eagles make Klamath Basin their rest stop, amounting to the largest wintering concentration of these birds in the contiguous United States. Located along the Pacific Flyway bird migration route, the vast acres of freshwater wetlands in the refuge complex serve as a stopover for nearly 1 million waterfowl in the fall. Any time of year is bird-watching season; more than 400 species of birds have been spotted in the Klamath Basin. For a leisurely ramble by car take the tour routes in the Lower Klamath and Tule Lake Refuges. There's a superb bookstore at the visitor center.
