Bird Watching on Lake Michigan

We often see swans flying over Lake Michigan.  They like the marshes on the tributaries near us.
This is good habitat for the blue heron pictured below. We occasionally see the American bald eagle, sand hill cranes flying in formation, Canadian geese and many varieties of ducks. There is a pileated woodpecker that hangs around the neighborhood and several sorts of owls we hear at night and occasionally see.

The hummingbirds we fed all summer have left and now we get chickadees, nuthatches, cardinals and downy woodpeckers.
