What We Love Most

Barrington is a village on the edge of nature. Settled in the 1800s, it was once known as a horse town. But now, it's excellent for birds. Baker's Lake sits in the southeast side of the village, right next to the Baker's Lake Nature Preserve. This area is perfect for birdwatching because there is a rookery, or breeding colony, for the birds in the lake. In the spring and summer, the rookery (which looks like scaffolding) is home to great blue herons with long necks and sleek, silvery feathers. You may also see great egrets and the black-crowned night heron nesting in the rookery. Built in 2000, this extra nesting area helps prevent overcrowding on the island within the lake.
