Barr Lake State Park has a wealth of birdlife at any season. With great habitat variety, Barr Lake is a good place to see birds of widely varying families. In the prairies are Western meadowlarks, Ring-necked pheasant and Northern Harrier cruising for small mammals. The riparian vegetation and cottonwood galleries around the lake host dozens of species of migrating warblers, vireos and flycatchers, while the lake itself is at times covered with waterfowl. If water levels have been drawn down for agricultural purposes, exposed mudflats can attract numerous species of shorebirds. Several species of gulls are present through the winter. Ducks, coots, grebes, cormorants and loons dot the lake surface.
