The Great Fall Migration Melodrama is Upon Us!

Golden-crowned, White-crowned, and Fox Sparrows arriving en mass from the north! Hermit Warblers and many other local nesting birds departing for their Tropical winter homes! And Sharp-shinned Hawks chasing them all through the forests! What a sensational dramatic story unfolding at our bird banding stations in these early days of the great annual bird fall migration! And you are invited to bear witness from a catbird seat with KBO’s biologists.

Klamath Bird Observatory continues to offer public visits to bird banding at our Upper Klamath Field Station near Fort Klamath in the Upper Klamath Lake area—but there are just a few more opportunities this fall. The banding station is scheduled on most Thursday mornings through mid-October. Individual, family, and group visits can be arranged by emailing KBO’s Banding Program Coordinator Bob Frey (see below).

This banding station, along Sevenmile Creek on the Fremont-Winema National Forest, is one of the longest running bird monitoring sites in the region. In the fall, many songbird species migrate through the Klamath Basin and can be encountered here, especially large numbers of warblers and sparrows. The location is also a birding hotspot on the Klamath Basin Birding Trail.

And a reminder … Crater Lake National Park and KBO continue our bird ecology program series into the fall. These Park Ranger-led programs begin at the Park’s Steel Visitor Center and feature a visit to KBO’s banding station in nearby Munson Valley. These programs are scheduled on Friday mornings—please check the Crater Lake National Park series flyer below for upcoming dates and more details.

Don’t miss these opportunities to experience the grand drama and visit KBO’s biologists and the birds they are studying up close!

Nestled along Sevenmile Creek on the Fremont-Winema National Forest, this banding station has been operated each year during the nesting and fall migration seasons since 1997—one of the longest running bird monitoring sites in the region. In the fall, many songbird species migrate through the Klamath Basin and can be encountered here, especially large numbers of warblers and sparrows. The location is also a birding hotspot on the Klamath Basin Birding Trail.

Klamath Bird Observatory is hosting a bird banding demonstration at our Sevenmile Guard Station long-term monitoring site (on Fremont-Winema National Forest) Monday August 1st. KBO biologists will be conducting bird banding and sharing captured birds and the valuable information they provide before their release.

The Sevenmile Guard Station site is one of the longest continuously operated bird monitoring stations in the region, established in 1996. Recently-fledged thrushes, sparrows, and warblers can be expected as well as early-migrating individuals of almost anything!

See our Bird Banding Demonstration Invitation for more info and directions. Snacks, drinks, and updates on how KBO and our partners are helping shape bird conservation and informing land management. Please RSVP to Bob Frey by July 26th.

Hope to see you there!
