The Klamath National Forest encompasses nearly 1.7 million acres of land straddling the California and Oregon border.  The Forest is divided into two sections separated by the Shasta Valley and the I-5 corridor.  In the mountains to the west, the terrain is steep and rugged. The east-side has the relatively gentler, rolling terrain of volcanic origin.  With elevations ranging from 450 to 8,900 feet above sea level, the Klamath National Forest is one of America’s most biologically diverse regions. It is situated in a transitional region between the hotter and drier areas to the south and the colder, wetter climate to the north.

Public lands provide some of the most important habitat for birds across the United States. A wide variety of songbirds can be found in the diverse of habitats on the Klamath National Forest. Birds are an excellent indicator of health and function of entire ecosystems.  Monitoring birds using the Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship (MAPS) protocol which includes bird banding is an important tool in tracking bird populations because it allows scientists to determine the condition and productivity of a local habitat area.
