LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is suggesting that residents suffering cabin fever this winter get out of the house and spend some time viewing Nebraska’s bald eagles.

Wildlife officials say eagles can be seen year-round across the state, but winter and early spring are the best times to see eagles in large numbers.

Officials say there are often concentrations of bald eagles feeding on fish and sick or wounded waterfowl at reservoirs. Favored sites include Sutherland Reservoir near Sutherland, Harlan County Reservoir near Alma, and below Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, South Dakota.

Lake Ogallala and Lake McConaughy near Ogallala also are top viewing sites, and the Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District has a viewing building near the dam spillway.
