Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

World Class Birding

The 30th Annual Klamath Wingfest
February 13, 14, 15th
Clay & I will try to attended this event today or tomorrow.
We do enjoy seeing these birds as we take day trips around the Klamath Basin. Just another advantage to living here in the Klamath Basin.
Located in both south central Oregon and northern California, the Basin is a key player on the Pacific Flyway, hosting 80 percent of the birds that use the Flyway. A total of six separate nearby refuges comprise the total National Wildlife Refuge complex spanning nearly 200,000 acres. A unique, strong cooperative partnership between farming, water resources, and the refuges provides an abundance of food and water that attracts vast numbers of waterfowl and raptors.
Over 350 species call this major Pacific flyway layover home…
From November through February over 500 bald Eagles-the largest concentration in the lower 48 states winter in the Klamath basin.
