Eagle spotted

Lebanon — A bald eagle was spotted by local resident Rene Stanley in a field north of the Lebanon Wal-Mart Sunday. Though rare for some people, John Castrale of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said the national bird is more often spotted in the winter, he said, and there are around 200 nests in the state. It was once a rare bird in Indiana, but not so much anymore as a result of restoration efforts. Castrale doesn’t know of a nest around Lebanon, but he said there are several in the Indianapolis area, mainly along the White River. “It doesn’t take much effort for an eagle to fly 15, 20 miles while they forage,” he said. “You usually see them along waterways, but also in fields to feed on dead animals.”

Bald eagles can be spotted throughout the country, Castrale added, but are most common in Alaska, the Great Lakes region, the Northwest and in Florida.
