A bald eagle was spotted by local resident Rene Stanley in a field north of the Lebanon Wal-Mart Sunday, May 5. Once rare in Indiana, John Castrale of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said the national bird can be seen about anywhere in the state these days as a result of restoration efforts. They are usually spotted most often in the winter, he said. There are around 200 nests in the state, according to Castrale, who doesn’t know of a nest around Lebanon but 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 Florida.
