Viewing Report for December 7, 2012


Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area

Note: Wildlife viewers and anglers need a parking permit to park on the wildlife area. The $7 daily or $22 annual permit can be purchased online or at an ODFW office that sells licenses or at a license sales agent.

Tule Lake Public Access Area and the Auto Route are closed for the season. Tule Lake Public Access Area will be open to foot traffic only Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and
holidays during the pheasant and waterfowl seasons.

The Glass Hill Unit is open to public access for foot traffic only. Visitors are advised to carefully read posted signs and consult game bird regulations before entering the wildlife area. 

Dogs are not permitted within the wildlife area, on or off leash except during authorized hunting seasons. There are numerous quality-viewing opportunities from county roads that pass through the area. 

Binoculars or a spotting scope will help as many animals are best viewed from a distance.

A variety of waterfowl have been using the area including mallard, green-winged teal, gadwall, northern shoveler, ring-necked duck, lesser scaup, common goldeneye and Canada goose. 

A few canvasbacks have been spotted in the area recently. 

Common mergansers have been observed using the fishing pond and other water bodies and were accompanied for at least a few days by one red-breasted merganser.

Spotted towhee, dark-eyed junco, white-crowned sparrow and northern shrike may be seen in a variety of locations within the wildlife area. American tree sparrows have been found in tree and shrub rows. Also, both mountain chickadees and Steller’s jays have been unusually widespread in the valley this fall including the wildlife area. 

A single belted kingfisher has been reliably seen along Hot Lake Lane most days. Northern harrier, red-tailed hawk, rough-legged hawk and bald eagle have all been seen hunting over the wildlife area. American ketrels can be seen perched on wires along the roads.

For more information on access rules for Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area, consult the Oregon Game Bird Regulations or call the wildlife area at 541-963-4954.
