University of Nebraska Kearney Students Visit J-2 Eagle-Viewing
Midway Point in the J2 Eagle Viewing Season
Post by Mark Peyton – CNPPID Senior Biologist
February 1st marks the mid-point in the eagle viewing season at Central’s J2 Power plant located south-east of Lexington. So far this has been an excellent season with both consistent numbers of eagles and quite a few visitors.
To date over 1,000 people have signed the registration book averaging over 45/day. They have been treated to about 25 eagles that are actively fishing, flying, and interacting with each other. The viewing center is open through February on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
