Take a long walk along the beach and wonder at smile at the greatness of the big pond, we have a resident Bald Eagle and it's pretty easy to spot if you take a hike along the lake, he or she does fly by's. There are some winter birds on the water too, such as Greater and Lesser Scaup, Common Goldeneye and Oldsquaws, and a few Loons to boot, which inhabit Lake Michigan’s near and offshore waters.
