Join us for a weekend of birding the northern part of Klamath County during our Birding Blitz from Thursday, June 22 to Sunday, June 25.
Not to be confused with the basin to the south, the northern portion of Klamath County contains Crater Lake, Klamath Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, and other Cascade foothills habitats. This area is known for Northern Goshawks and other coniferous forest specialties.
Itinerary and Registration
The headquarters for the northern Klamath County Blitz will be Klamath Falls, Oregon. We will meet each morning or preceding evening to assign areas, coordinate efforts, and exchange information.

On the mornings of June 23-25, we will break into groups and count birds in and near assigned Oregon2020 Hotspot Squares. Teams can spend the rest of the day chasing rarities or exploring interesting looking habitats. Don’t forget to bring a camera to capture all the amazing scenery!
This will be a free event. However, participants will be responsible for their own accommodations and meals. We recommend booking accommodations at nearby lodging and camping as early as possible.
