Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus)
Bald eagles are well known as our national symbol.
Bald eagles primarily feed on fish. Eagles scavenge dead fish
along shorelines and capture live ones with their feet. Bald
eagles are considered a threatened species in Michigan.
Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)
The Great Blue Heron uses its long legs to wade
in the rivers and streams to catch fish. It may also eat frogs,
mice, and insects. Herons can be seen along rivers and streams
standing motionless, hunting for food.
