Workshop:

Birdwatching w/ Klamath Bird Observatory

7-10 AM 

Join Shannon Rio, president of the Klamath Bird Observatory, for an early morning birding walk.  All levels welcome.  Binoculars available.  Bring water. Learn birds by the sounds they make as well as by seeing them.  Plan on a leisurely two hour walk followed by coffee and breakfast snacks and a discussion on what birds live on the Dunn Ranch property, with a focus on bird behaviors (what is that bird doing and why?!)
