On June 21, 2017, a friend and I were hiking at Overlooked Falls on the Little Carp River in the Porcupine Mountains in the UP of Michigan. As we approached the falls, I saw a duck-sized flurry of feathers--perhaps black, white, and brown or russet--and a glimpse of a thin bill for perhaps a second before it disappeared around a rock on rapid duck-like wingbeats. My question is: what kind of duck--or duck-like bird--would frequent a rapidly descending stream in deep woods four miles and perhaps a hundred feet or so above Lake Superior? The falls and rapids ran in old-growth hardwood forest over slick rock with no still pools.
I was kayaking on Lake Superior this weekend between Tettegouche and Split Rock State Parks. As we travelled down the coast we notice something on the rock outcropping. Because of its size we thought it might be a person, standing or sitting. As we got closer we realized it was a bird. The pictures were taken from a pretty good distance. But it was huge and I don't really recognize it. We also saw a couple of bald eagles and this was considerably larger. Any help would be appreciated.
