Common Birds of Wallowa Lake

Barrows Goldeneye

These smallish diving ducks are usually found near the Marina on the south end or Wallowa Lake. The males have a striking black-and-white color that flashes a deep cobalt blue in the sunlight. Females are grey and black with a brown head. Their early spring mating displays are fun to watch.
