Birding at Willow-Witt Ranch

Great Horned Owl

Wild visitors turn each season at the ranch into a colorful and surprising adventure.

At Willow-Witt Ranch we make every effort to encourage wildlife to call the ranch home, from restoring our wetland meadows and planting trees to providing a wealth of seed for songbirds. So bring your binoculars to sight birds on a morning stroll.

Klamath Bird Observatory leads surveys and group walks here to count migratory birds in spring and fall. Even if you are out on your own, you are bound to enjoy the diversity of birds and their songs. It's another great reason to come for a Farm Stay or to take a self-guided tour at the ranch.

Southern Oregon is host to a remarkable diversity of bird species and birding opportunities. Visit these sites for more Southern Oregon birding information: Klamath Bird Observatory, Klamath Basin Birding Trail, Rogue Valley Audubon Society, Klamath Audubon Society.
