Barker Dam

Water Birds in the Desert

The presence of water at Barker Dam draws many animals and birds, even American coots, Western grebes, migrating ducks, and an occasional shorebird.

Coots and grebes have been known to nest here, feeding on algae and aquatic inserts. An occasional long-legged wading bird such as a green-backed heron, black-crowned night heron, or the great blue heron, has been seen along the shore, usually just stopping over at a scarce desert water source during migration.
