Aquatic Bird Sites

wegr 3 c Jim Livaudais 72 ppi 9 x 6.8In an effort to help coordinate aquatic bird monitoring and facilitate regionally based studies, Klamath Bird Observatory has compiled and posted descriptions for Important Aquatic Bird Sites within eastern Oregon, western Oregon, and northwestern California. The site descriptions include information such as water level fluctuations, land ownership, access issues, visibility constraints, and aquatic birds expected to be present. 
This project was successful thanks to contributions from many partners and funding from the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife State Wildlife Grants, Charlotte Martin Foundation, Pacific Coast Habitat Joint Venture, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
