SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - A special birding event has been scheduled this coming weekend at Lake Minatare State Recreation Area in the Nebraska Panhandle.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says birders of all ages and skill levels are invited to participate on Saturday after gathering at the lighthouse on Lakeview Point between 8 and 11 a.m. Binoculars, spotting scopes and blinds will be provided.

Employees of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will lead the program. Lake superintendent Dan Thornton says many birds are expected to be at the lake, including a variety of migratory waterfowl species and possibly bald eagles.

The event is free, but vehicles entering the area must have 2015 park permits.
