Putnam’s Point

A bird lovers dream, Putnam’s Point is a semi-wild landscape consisting of brushland and forest habitat and is home to dozens of seabirds. It is located at the south end of Upper Klamath Lake off of Lakeshore Drive in Klamath Falls, Oregon. This park is adjacent to Moore Park which offers an abundance of hiking and bicycle trails, fishing and picnic areas. Next to shore areas, birds to look for include Western and Clark’s Grebes, Snowy Egret, Green Heron, Barrow’s Golden Eye, Hooded Merganser and Tree Swallow. During the spring, visitors can see Yellow-rumped, Yellow, Wilson’s and Orange-crowned Warblers. Visit during mid-May to observe the annual ritual of dancing Western and Clark’s Grebes. Fall migrations allow visitors to observe Horned and Eared Grebes, Canvasback, Redhead, Ring-necked Duck, Bufflehead, Ring-billed and California Gulls and other rare species.

Inside Moore Park the habitat transitions from juniper-sagebrush land to pine forest. Putnam Point and Moore Park Marina offer great viewing into Upper Klamath Lake, and it is worth staying late to catch the unspeakably gorgeous sunsets.
