Diverse habitats within park boundaries welcome resident and migrating bird species. Bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) nest along the caldera cliffs. American dippers (Cinclus mexicanus, America's only aquatic songbird) forage at the bottom of fast-flowing streams. Subalpine areas are home to the gray-crowned rosy finch (Leucosticte tephrocotis). Wildfire burned forests attract a variety of woodpeckers including the rare black-backed (Picoides arcticus) and three-toed (Picoides dorsalis) woodpeckers. Common mergansers (Mergus merganser) raise families on the lake, and calls of songbirds permeate the forests and meadows.
