Waterfowl flocking to the desert? You bet—when the desert is the coulee country of eastern Washington, with its plethora of lakes nestled in the rocky basins at the bottoms of the coulees. Trail Lake, a tiny gem of a lake just south of the massive impoundment of Banks Lake, draws more than its fair share of waterfowl, and not just during the winter migration. Yearround populations of mallards, mergansers, herons, and scaups call this lake basin home.
