Common Birds of Wallowa Lake

Bald Eagle

Wallowa Lake now has two nesting pairs of eagles, including one that's very visible along the south shore. This large and sturdy bird dives, talons first, for fish along the surface. Eagles compete and will sometines force Ospreys to drop their fish. The Bald Eagle has been our National Symbol since 1782.
