A designated migratory bird sanctuary is located only 7 miles from Middle Lake between Basin Lake and Middle Lake. Basin and Middle Lakes are large saline parkland lakes. The main water sources for these lakes are intermittent creeks that only carry water during spring runoff and periods of heavy rains. As such, these sites are subjected to severe water level fluctuations. Basin Lake, with an average depth of 9 m, has extensive rocky and sandy areas, as well as extensive mudflats along its shoreline. This lake is essentially devoid of emergent vegetation. Middle Lake, with an average depth of 1m, has a similar shoreline profile, but extensive wet meadow zones occur on the east and south shores. Much of Middle Lake is open water with extensive stands of cattail and bulrush in the shallow marshy bay in the southwest corner of the lake.
During surveys completed in 1988 and 1989, an average of 9,578 shorebirds were recorded during three one-day surveys. Undoubtedly, thousands of additional shorebirds would be observed during long study periods. In addition to shorebirds, over 30,000 ducks have been recorded at this site during the summer moulting period.
Surveys of breeding colonial waterbirds have also been completed at this site with 227 American White Pelicans and 745 Double-crested Cormorants being recorded during the early 1990s. Piping Plovers (globally vulnerable and nationally endangered) also nest at the lake in small numbers. During the 1996 International Piping Plover Census, two pairs were observed.

Other birds known or believed to breed on these lakes include several grebe species (Piedbilled, Horned, Eared, Western and Red-necked) along with California Gulls, Black Terns, Common Terns, and Blackcrowned Night Herons.
