drive around the auto loop many times, check the road signs for sitting eagles as you approach. If there is a spot of open water surrounded by lots of ice, and there are many geese there, eagles will follow. Look for coyote in the open fields around the auto loop in the morning. Go to nearby Tule Lake NWR and do the auto loop there too. At Lower Klamath NWR go to the Straits Unit and Township Rd and look for eagles there. Dont drive off the road in the straits units (youll get stuck). Get into the blind before sunrise (I didnt see much from th blind my last trip, had better luck from the road). Check the tops of telephone poles on the roads (I saw a golden eagle and a couple bald eagles on them close up).
Youll do fine with a 300 mm from the blind, but for the road Id prefer to rent a 500 or 600 mm lens, with a beanbag on teh car window (lensrentals.com or borrowlenses.com are an option). I LOVE that place, youll have a good time. Post your pics here when you get back! Good luck!
