Another winter of Bald Eagle viewing is underway at the Shepaug Hydroelectric Station in Southbury, and the Connecticut Audubon Society is again proud to be collaborating with FirstLight Power Resources to make the experience enjoyable and educational.

The viewing area at the Shepaug Hydroelectric Station provides visitors with a panoramic view over the Housatonic River and the forests in the distance. Each winter Bald Eagles gather near the dam to hunt for fish.

The viewing station is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays through the first weekend in March, from 9 a.m. til 1 p.m. FirstLight Power has made improvements to the viewing building and has supplied it with new spotting scopes and binoculars.

The bald eagle viewing location is free and open to the public but, because space is limited, reservations are necessary. Call 800-368-8954 or reserve a space online, here.
