Up To 1,000 Bald Eagles Invade The Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuges In Oregon Every Winter And It's A Sight To Be Seen
Bird watchers surely must be in heaven in Oregon. In addition to the many bird species that call this place home year-round, millions more arrive here every year during fall migration, and the Beaver State’s different habitats allow dozens of species to thrive.
From eastern Oregon to the coast, you’ll find everything from little Streaked Horned Larks to stately Tundra Swans. During the winter months, as many as 1,000 Klamath Basin bald eagles populate the National Wildlife Refuges located in southern Oregon and northern California. Come along as we explore this annual wintry flight of fancy!
