Search Klamath Falls Oregon

The Klamath Basin in Southern Oregon - Klamath County. The KBBT encircles the Pacific Northwests largest natural lake - Upper Klamath Lake. Renowned for its diversity and abundance of bird life.

The basin is a bird lovers paradise, with over 350 species of birds. An estimated one to two million ducks and geese migrate through the Klamath Basin each fall. The largest concentration of bald eagles in the Lower 48 states winter in the Klamath Basin from November through February.

The warmer spring weather brings shorebirds and waterfowl - thousands returning to nest in Klamath marshes. More than 200,000 ducks, geese, herons, egrets, and grebes can be seen there in the summer months.

The trail provides year-round opportunities to view the 350 species which call the Klamath Basin home. Photo blinds are available at some area wildlife refuges.
