Permanent Marshes and Deep
Text by Dave Menke, USFWS.
Permanent Marshes and
Deep Wetland Habitats are found in the Upper Klamath and Tule Lake Basins.
Habitat includes Klamath, Williamson, Wood, Sprague, and Lost Rivers; Upper
Klamath, Clear, and Tule Lakes, many smaller deep wetlands and permanent
marshes. Fish-eating species such as grebes, pelicans, gulls, terns, and
diving ducks use these wetlands. The vegetation growing in these wetlands
(primarily cattail and bulrush stands which are also called 'tules') provide
habitat for rails, white-faced ibis, egrets, herons, yellow-headed
blackbirds to name only a few.
