Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge. In winter, the Klamath Basin near the Oregon border hosts the densest concentration of bald eagles in the Lower 48: nearly a thousand eagles, migrants from the Northern Rockies and Pacific Northwest.
The best places to watch are at Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge and Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge. They lie between state highways 139 and 161; together they contain 85,600 acres of wetlands-an increasingly important habitat since only 25 percent of California's once vast wetlands remain.
Worse, the KBRA promotes the continuation of leasing publicly owned lands on Lower Klamath and Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuges for commercial agricultural operations.
