The Klamath Basin is renowned for its wide diversity and abundance of bird life due to its diverse habitats including marshes, open water, coniferous forest, Juniper woodlands, oak-chaparral, sagebrush-grasslands, grassy meadow and rocky cliffs.

Over 350 species of birds call this major Pacific Flyway layover home!

The Klamath Basin is also a great place for humans needing relief from the hustle and bustle of big city living. We call it a refuge..for more than just birds!

Sun Pass Ranch is just minutes away from Upper Klamath Lake marshland areas for spectacular birding plus you should see all the birds that hang out right outside our back door…
we have geese, ducks, hawks, eagles, a pair of sandhill cranes and so many more!
