KLAMATH BASIN

We went to see the Bald Eagle "flyout" from the Bear Valley Refuge. Not a valley, but an old-growth forested hillside west of hwy 97 near Worden, Oregon. From the base of the Refuge at sunrise, you may see 100 or more bald eagles as they leave their communal night roost on their way to the early morning waterfowl buffet. We saw a few, but too high for much of a thrill. Different story down in the marshes, though. Here's a sample of what we saw.
