PHOTO SHOOT: Eagle Viewing Day at Duke Energy's Cayuga Station

  • Jan 25, 2014 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Sorry everyone but I am canceling this meetup do to the weather. Looks like we are in for another round of several inches coupled with blowing snow which could make driving on the highway tough.  I would rather everyone stay safe and warm in their own roost. 

Certainly you can decide to go on your own if you wish.  The only contact I have to be sure it is still open is through the Duke energy website. 

Side note: I have a couple of other Eagle opportunities in the next coming weeks to check out. Hopefully winter will loosen its grip by then. 

This is the 19th year that Cayuga Station will host the state's largest population of mid-winter migratory bald eagles at its annual eagle viewing day. When area lakes and rivers freeze over, warm water from the power plant keeps the waters free of ice thus attracting fish the eagles hunt and eat. The American Eagle Federation will be on hand to present the 'Birds of Prey' program with both bald and golden eagles on hand at 10 and 2pm.

Dress warm and bring cameras, binoculars, and spotting scopes. No backup day is planned in case of bad weather.

Let's meet at the attic at 8:00 am and ride together. Cayuga Station is located along State Road 63 about 35 miles north of Terre Haute.

    I have been looking forward to this shoot ever since I found out about it last year. However with the extreme weather forecast for Saturday I don't think I better attempt it. If you go good luck and stay warm.

    I went to this two years ago and there weren't many eagles present due to some flooding near the plant. It is a fantastic opportunity and I hope to be able to drag the kids out there with me this weekend.
