CENTRAL’S EAGLE VIEWING FACILITIES OPENING!

News Release from Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District:

The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District will once again provide eagle-watching opportunities to the public this winter.

 

The regular viewing season will begin at Central’s J-2 Hydroplant on the end of December and will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., CST on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of February. The hydroplant is located south of Lexington near the intersection of county roads 749 and 750.

 

Central’s eagle-viewing facility below Kingsley Dam will open for the season on the end of December and will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., CST on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of February. The Kingsley Dam facility is open for eagle-viewing from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (MST) on Saturdays and Sundays. (more information on right.)

 

A limited number of binoculars are available at the facilities, but visitors are encouraged to bring their own viewing equipment.

 

Central has been providing eagle-viewing opportunities at J-2 since 1988 and at Kingsley Dam since 1990. The eagles are attracted to feed on fish in the open water below the plants, particularly when rivers and lakes in the area are covered with ice.

 

Several factors influence the number of eagles seen from the facilities on any given day, including climatic conditions, ice coverage on area bodies of water, how many eagles are wintering in the area, and whether the hydroplants are on-line. The best viewing time is normally earlier in the day. There is no charge to visit the facilities.
