wfib_1_jlImportant Aquatic Bird Site Descriptions

In an effort to help coordinate aquatic bird monitoring and facilitate regionally based studies, KBO has compiled and posted descriptions for Important Aquatic Bird Sites. 

Site descriptions include information such as water level fluctuations, land ownership, access issues, visibility constraints, and aquatic birds expected to be present.  These descriptions are meant to be living documents.  To update information please contact Karen Hussey.  This project was successful thanks to contributions from many partners and funding from Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife State Wildlife Grants, Charlotte Martin Foundation, Pacific Coast Joint Venture, and the US Fish & Wildlife Service.
