Klamath Basin Birding Trail Tulelake Reviews
A great place to stop by... Jul 06, 2013
The town Tulelake is called the Gateway to the Lava Beds and also part of the Klamath basin birding trail. If you are fond of bird watching, this area is truly a wonderful place! However, summer is not a migratory season so the bird species are much less. I guess when it is colder, the bird volume and population is immense. Yet even in the summer we were able to spot different birds like pelicans, swans, wild ducks, and cranes at the wide open Tule Lake on the way to the Lava Beds Monument Park.
On our first day to the town we decided to swing by at the Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge Visitor’s Center before we headed up to the lava beds park. Verna, the lodge owner, recommended it to us to visit the center first, so we did. The Visitor’s Center looked ordinary from its façade but I was totally impressed as soon as we got inside the building. They have intensive birding information through interpretative displays, preserved wild animals displays, and mounted wall size wild life’s photos! A very nice staff welcomed us and answered some of our questions. She also encouraged my children to use the binoculars for bird-watching from the trees and rock hills outside through the glass walls. They had fun seeing different kinds of birds like orioles, yellow-headed blackbird, and many more!
