Fly High: Kalamazoo’s Soaring Bald Eagle
It's not every day that we see the country's flagship bird roaming the skies above us, but in recent times we have been extremely lucky. As most of us know, the Bald Eagle, which is just an eagle with white fur on their head instead of the traditional grey/brown coat that sits on the rest of its body.
Michigan's U.P and Wisconsin are known for having large Bald Eagle populations and are known for having frequent sights of the awestriking bird. Every so often they like to travel down the state or they stop for a while while migrating north upon the return of spring and us folk in the lower peninsula get to enjoy the beautiful birds for a while.
I haven't personally seen the eagle yet, but they are all over Reddit bragging about coming across the majestic bird in its natural state within Kalamazoo. Someone was even able to capture a photo of the resting bird.
The eagle has been seen all over Kalamazoo but mostly in the Oakland Drive and Milham Park areas. The Eagle has been seen eating, resting, soaring, and naturally existing within our community.
There were a ton of comments under the post as well, pointing out where else in Southwest Michigan they have seen Bald Eagles and where they are nested.
