• Day 2 - Sycan River to Cabin Lake Bird Blind (82 miles)
  • Sycah River, Klamath County OR, United States of America
  • Website

Two 8' x 12' covered shelters, approximately 300' apart on a north-south line, permit silent human observers to spy upon thirsty animals. Each blind has a small concrete basin that puddles water piped nearby water collection aprons and storage tanks. Veiled wall openings allow viewing and photography from a distance of 15-20 feet. A barbed-wire fence surrounds the lower site and a pole fence surrounds the upper site. Be sure to browse the registry for its decades-long, international record of human and wildlife visitors. There is a picnic area nearby.

Caution: Such close proximity between observer and wildlife demands absolute silence, so keep your dog or cat away. Bring a filled water container to replenish the drinking basin in case the supply system is disabled. You can leave your fishing rod and boat at home because the "lake" dried centuries ago.
