Does any one know how the Klamath area refugee's are water wise this spring?

I am thinking of taking a trip from Monterey up the coast to Portland then back down through Bend to Klamath falls. This would be late March early April.

Will there still be any birds around?


Edit: Here is a great birding resource for Oregon birding. Click on any county and it gives lots of great info.

Great photos all...Reilly, will have to look at my book to ID. I saw five of them in a matter of minutes. Amazing morning.

Q-ball, I'm going with Byelogolovoi Grif. What, you wanted the English?
Immature White-headed Griffon.

Don't know my Central Asian Anseriformes.

Reilly-

I believe that is it in Russian!

Cinereous Vulture and Ruddy Shellduck are the names I am familiar with.

Take care!

Dave;

And it was just a block and a half from my house! They are big, spectacular, and pretty bold about being around people. I really wish I could do justice to the threat-pose it made to the squirrel. It kind of scared me, and I was 12' away on the ground. Maybe think of a cross between pterodactyl and a the batman icon.

I didn't realize they didn't make it all the way down to you. I saw one up in Tuolumne Meadows once fly across the road near Fairview Dome. OK, I have to admit: After all the birds y'all list exclusive to more southern latitudes, I experienced just the teeniest bit of schadenfreude when I checked the range map after your posting.

My wife used to see them every time they camped in Sequoia when she was a kid.
I've spent MUCH time in my life tromping around the Sierra and never have seen one.

I've seen only their holes in SEKI. Never saw one in 15 years in Seattle.
Seen 'em in the flesh in Eastern WA and OR.

I have seen them three or four different times in Yosemite.

And a couple times in Ft Bragg.

Cool bird.

So many beautiful birds!

Been hideously cold here (in the negative double digits in the morning and evening). I think it has brought Bushtits to the house. Never saw them at the feeder before, but they are here for the suet.

Bob,
I like that Plain Wren, very subtle beauty.


Dirt Claud,
That looks like fun and what beautiful birds, I'm tempted!

Our Harris Hawk hasn't returned this year.
