SOUTHEAST ZONE VIEWING
Waterfowl migration has stopped and most waterfowl found now will be breeding pairs on territories and initiating nesting sites.
Sandhill cranes can be found in agricultural fields throughout the Harney Basin.
Shorebird migration is slowing. Birding will be more difficult as birds begin to initiate nesting. Lesser yellow legs, killdeer, avocets, black-necked stilts, white-faced ibis, curlews, willets, pelicans, egrets and a variety of grebes species are a few of what can be seen. Forester’s terns, black terns, franklins, ring-billed and California gulls can also be found.
