Birds at Saint Ignace

At the junction of Lakes Michigan and Huron, Saint Ignace sees its share of birds from the lakes and the forests. Some that we spotted during our recent visit included swans, herons, ducks, geese, pigeons and seagulls. The swans and herons did not appear often during our visit; the ducks had ducklings in tow; the seagulls were everywhere. The brochure from the hotel called the seagulls ‘white rats.’ They were quite aggressive around the breakfast area at the hotel!

  1. A lovely set of photographs. Your “white rats” are Ring-billed Gulls which occasionally turn up on our side of the Atlantic. When they do, birdwatchers will drive miles to see them. It’s really strange. Gulls are certainly aggressive though, and they have an amazing ability to eat more or less anything, with ice cream a rather bizarre favourite here in England!

    1. Yes, we are very familiar with the ring-billed gulls. We see them anytime we are close to a Great Lake. Last summer they stalked us while we visited the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Lake Michigan!
