A rare bird of the Michigan jack pine forests, the Kirtland's Warbler is dependent upon fire to provide the small trees and open areas that meet its rigid habitat requirements for nesting. The Gray Petrel, also called the brown petrel, pediunker or grey shearwater is a species of seabird in the Procellariidae. The adults have yellow throat, chest, and belly; black stripes down sides; and white crescents above and below eyes; and two white wingbars. They constantly pump their tails.
