Eagle viewing day coming up at Duke Energy’s Cayuga Station

TERRE HAUTE — Duke Energy will stage its 18th annual bald eagle viewing day on Jan. 26 at its Cayuga electric power plant along the Wabash River, about 35 miles north of Terre Haute.

The event is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are not necessary.  

“More than 23,000 have attended eagle viewing days over the years,” said Cayuga station manager Mike Wertz. “It’s been an opportunity for visitors from around Indiana and the region to see and learn about our majestic national bird and symbol.”

The American Eagle Foundation will be on hand again to present its “Eagle and Birds of Prey Program” at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The presentation includes captive live eagles.

A number of school presentations with the eagles are planned. The American Eagle Foundation will be at Clay City Elementary School and Forest Park Elementary School in Clay County on Jan. 24, and at Mill Creek West Elementary School and Danville South Elementary School in Hendricks County on Jan. 25.

During most years, the area near Cayuga Station hosts the state’s largest population of mid-winter migratory bald eagles. When area lakes and streams freeze over in the winter, warm water discharged from the Cayuga power plant keeps the river area by the plant ice free, which attracts fish upon which the eagles feed.  

Eagle viewers should dress warmly and may want to bring binoculars, cameras and spotting scopes. In the event of bad weather, no backup day is planned.

Duke Energy monitors and works in collaboration with groups such as the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to help manage endangered species found on or near its properties statewide. More information on Duke Energy’s environmental programs can be found at www.duke-energy.com.

For more information on the program call 800-832-3143.
