I worked with the Klamath Bird Observatory (John Alexander) prior to the official development of KBO. I have donated money at the fundraisers and am always so pleased with the people behind KBO and their efforts. As a Wildlife Biologist for the BLM I have used their publications in analyzing for certain activities and what the implications on birds may be (the science that supports it). John Alexander and his superb staff are always a pleasure to work with, open to partnerships, protect birds and their habitats through monitoring, research, and education/outreach. and
