The Eagles of Hall Lake - Orangeville
You don't have to go way "up north" any more to find bald eagles. These great birds have made a comeback and now can be found in all parts of Michigan. Just a few miles from Orangeville is famous Gun Lake. A short away on Gun Lake Road is the Yankee Springs Recreation area and the quiet and secluded Hall Lake. There may be eagles all over Michigan but Hall Lake has at least one nesting pair that has taken up residence.
When bald eagles reach maturity (at four
to five years of age), they select a mate, with whom they
probably mate for life. In captivity, they have been known
to live to 50 years, but in the wild, they probably don't
reach much more than 20 years of age.
