PERU, Ind. (AP) — State wildlife officials are planning a bald eagle watching event at a northern Indiana reservoir that’s a gathering spot for large numbers of the majestic birds.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says its annual Sunrise Eagle Watch at Mississinewa Lake is set for Jan. 12. The agency says the reservoir near the city of Peru is home to the largest documented bald eagle roost in Indiana.

Participants can attend a Jan.11 program at the Best Western in Peru to hear eagle watch leaders discuss their experiences. Those joining the eagle watch will meet at Mississinewa Lake’s Miami State Recreation Area boat launch at 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 12 to caravan to the roosting area.

Those interested should call 260-468-2127 to register.
