Lincoln County boasts a large number of winter visitors, as many Bald Eagles choose the central flyway for waterfowl migration as their preferred overwintering home. North Platte’s Cody Park is a convenient and comfortable place to watch these magnificent birds during their winter sojourn. A drive along the Platte River between North Platte and Sutherland will also provide the opportunity to see many Bald Eagles.
Perhaps the best viewing of all is at the Sutherland Reservoir. On the east, there’s the Outlet and Hershey Beach, where the cooling pond from the Nebraska Public Power District’s Gerald Gentleman Power Plant is open water all year long and fish and waterfowl provide a constant food supply for the Eagles. On the north is Hole in the Wall, Omaha Beach and the Sutherland Oregon Trail Golf Course. A drive along the road within the wall will put you in close proximity to many Eagles. On the west is the Inlet with more opportunities to view the overwintering Eagles. Find more information on area birding opportunities HERE
