Northeastern California Birding

Klamath Basin Lassen Volcanic

Birding northeastern California can be very rewarding. The volcanic Cascades provide home to species like Gray Jay, Williamson's Sapsucker and Northern Goshawk. Sagebrush plains are home to Pinyon Jays and Sage Grouse. The Klamath Basin has one of the largest wintering populations of Bald Eagles in the country. All these things make birding in this part of the state incredibly varied.
