LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) — The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District will provide opportunities to watch bald eagles again this winter.
The season will begin Saturday at the J-2 Hydroplant facility six miles south of Lexington. The viewing sessions will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through the last weekend in February.
A limited number of binoculars are available at the facility.
The district has been helping people watch eagles at J-2 since 1988 and at Kingsley Dam. The birds feed on fish in the open water below the plants, particularly when rivers and lakes in the area are covered with ice.
