Shasta County, California


Shasta County Map

Shasta County, covering approximately 3,800 square miles, contains lowland valley, foothill, montane, and Great Basin bird species. The uniquely variable geography and climatic conditions found within the county provide a wide habitat diversity supporting 292 bird species, 244 which are regularly occurring and 48 of which are infrequently observed. Public lands within Shasta County are abundant and provide easy access to many excellent birding areas. The Wintu Audobon Society encourages you to join us in exploring and enjoying these areas and the birds they support.

Recommended birding locations: 1) Whiskeytown Lake, French Gulch; 2) Redding Convention Center, Turtle Bay, Sacramento River Trail; 3) Millville Plains; 4) Battle Creek, Coleman Fish Hatchery/Forebay; 5) McCumber Reservoir; 6) Lassen Volcanic National Park, Manzanita Lake; 7) Fall River Valley (for Great Basin overlap bird species; and 8) not shown on the linked map, the Upper Sacramento River Canyon.
