Birding Beyond Borders

Klamath Bird Observatory (KBO) presents Birding Beyond Borders in partnership with Mantiqueira Bird Observatory (OAMa). This presentation celebrates the Klamath Bird Observatory, birds, scientists, conservationists, and people from all parts of our globe. It praises the value of diversity in all of the aspects that nature provides to us: diversity of landscape, diversity of peoples and culture, and how that diversity equals a balanced healthy world.

There will be two parts the first is presented by KBO board president, Shannon Rio. As a tribute to the Klamath Bird Observatory and how it embraces the international aspect of studying and protecting birds. She will be introducing how this has impacted people and the environment with a slideshow and videos.

The second part of the presentation is presented by past KBO intern and Executive Director of OAMa, Luiza Figueira. She will talk about the development of the bird observatory in Brazil, their research and outreach projects to promote bird conservation.

FUNdraiser — Hawks and Ducks Field Trip

Join KBO board members Amanda Alford and Dick Ashford for an all-day outing on March 5th, where we’ll look at everything “the basin” has to offer. Dick and Amanda will plan a route that will give us our best chances of seeing the varied birdlife for which the Klamath Basin is famous. And, we’ll have lots of fun doing it!

Our KBO FUNdraising events are being offered with Covid safety as our primary concern. Proof of vaccination will be required for all in-person participants. To ensure a Covid-safe, quality experience, we are limiting field trip offerings to a small number of 4-PERSON CAR PODS. One donor will be able to purchase a 1-car ticket for a total of four people to include family members or close friends who make up that donor’s Covid-safe pod. Social distancing and masking when appropriate will also be required. More details about KBO’s Covid-safe guidelines will be provided upon registration.

Bird Conmigo

Join Klamath Bird Observatory for free bilingual bird walks in Medford. We will be exploring local parks highlighting that you do not need to travel far to enjoy birds. For each bird walk, we will cover the basics of birding and introduce you to birds of the Rogue Valley. Making it perfect for beginner birders. You will be able to take the skills and knowledge learned to bird watch in your own backyard. KBO will be providing binoculars and bird guides during the event. An adventure for the whole familia!
