Mits said...

THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD, STEVEN! Sorry about your loss, Norma.

Mits said...

Eagles busy up in Maine, got to repair that nest from last weeks mini-hurricane.

normabyrd said...

THANKS STEVEN, HANDSOME STEVEN, FOR THE NEW THREAD----I THINK I TOLD YOU ON THE OLD THREAD---WE ALL LOVE YOU----WE VOTED!!! STEVEN---YOU THE MAN!!!----Where can we get the info on the film festival----Would enjoy that---(would like one of the films to be about EAGLES!) WV EAGLES!! ho! ho!

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steven! I'm planning on coming down to that on Sat. Hopefully!

Right now we're watching the eagle pair in Maine, and 1 of the 2 eagles in BW. Sure would be nice if we could watch OUR pair!! Any idea when we can watch our cam?

I brought this over from the other thread...too much to type again.

Ok, Mits. Chrissy, I drive by a zoo on my way home, and they had 3 tiger cubs born there in May. The Mum wasn't a very good one with 3 little cubs, and 1 almost died, so they took them away from her and hand raised them. 2 boys and 1 girl. Anyway, stopped almost weekly all summer to watch them grow. Last stop was Tues, and they told me that 2 of them (both the males) would be moving to Arizona at the end of the week. Probably now, either today or tomorrow I'm guessing. They were hand fed a bottle, weaned onto dishes, milk and water, and now they're eating meat. They have grown quite a bit. In this case, it was for the best of the cubs, and at least all 3 lived. If you're talking about the cubs in Washington, DC, I don't know anything about them.

Both eagles back in Maine! They are a beautiful pair, aren't they???

Mits, how can you capture a pic of them, do you know? I hit my right mouse key, but it does nothing! Love that beautiful area, there too!

Suzanne said...

They're working their little tutu's off on that nest!

Glo said...

Hi All I have been watching the eagles in Maine. Hopefully the FRAPS I snapped will capture a couple of pictures. I haven't taken time to look. I am busy watching WITH My sound uP!!!

Mits said...

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY EAGLES UP IN MAINE! How can I take a pic at this site???

Suzanne said...

Dang! Don't have sound, but would love to hear them! They are busy. Our BW eagle is still sitting on the corner of the osprey nest!

Glo, you frapped the Maine nest, but how can you capture a pic? My mouse buttons don't work on their pic!

Mits said...

:):):)Suz, you and I had the same question?????? I don't know!!

Suzanne said...

Ahhhhhhhh!! Frustrating! And there they went! Last one just took off. I'm sure they're branch shopping and will be back!

normabyrd said...

MITS----I SAW THEM-----DID YOU GET THAT PIC?---I love the scenery there---too beautiful!!!

Suzanne said...

Norma, do you still want info on the Conservation Film Fest this weekend at NCTC?

Send me an email, and I'll forward the info I have to you. I have a schedule of the films and a bit of info.

Glo said...

Suzanne I don't think there is a way without the FRAPS program. I snapped lots of stills too. I have to go see what I got. I also got one video of the one who took off towards the camera I think. I will send it around. Not sure if I send it your way if you can see it or not. Actually some time today see if you can see the BLOG where the fledges are again, speaking of Fraps and Videos. Once you get your computer going at home you have got to get the FRAPS program at least in the Free version which does the snap still ALL you want and the short FRAP videos too.

Steven said...

Click on the link for more FIlm Fest info

Mits said...

Eagles all gone...everywhere:(:(:(

Glo said...

OK Think I sent a picture of the Pair at Maine to all of you on here right now anyway. send it around to those I missed

Suzanne said...

OMG, go away for a few minutes and MT nests all over.

The ewwwwwwwwie sanitation engineer just showed up in BW.

Suzanne said...

Thanks for posting that link, Steven. Way more info that what I got!

wvgal_dana said...

See we got a new thread

Hi Good Morning Eaglelovers and Steve.

Checked my mail yes but Steven what I wanted wasn't in there :(

MEMA Jo said...

Good Morning Everyone Thanks for the ME eagle pic, Glo. Mits, thanks for George's pics...I hope he soon stays away from that nest before he becomes dinner. Suzanne I noticed that this weekend the Potomac Arts Festival is being held on the NCTC grounds. Any chance you are going to attend that plus the Film Festival?

wvgal_dana said...

I see no eagles at Maine or Kent now

DLTUK said...

Hello people. Has anyone been watching Wavelit today. Loads going on, Wlldebeest, Springbok, a wart hog and a huge family of baboons, including tiny ones. Sadly though the croc in the pond took 2 of the babies this afternoon. Chrissy and I were watching it, lots of splashing and one baboon went, then a bit later the same thing happened again. All the other animals who go there to drink are very nervous at the moment. Doreen xx

wvgal_dana said...

I can't wait to see little "chubbie" crawling to Lun Lun then climbing all over her lol

This morning she was on her back and rolled over easily. Holding head up...that crawling is probably not too far off.

wvgal_dana said...

Which we could take pics there for Glo's pic site.

Suzanne said...

MemaJo, I didn't know anything about the Potomac Arts Festival. I was planning on going there for their film festival, but hadn't even picked out which movies I want to see yet.

What is the Potomac Arts Festival, and where on the grounds is it being held?

I'm also stopping by (or around) the nest hoping to see our parents!! (Maybe I'll go through the woods tonight and get a few sticks to bring them! Kind of take them near the nest with a little note (course they can read, can't they?) telling them to use the sticks from PA.)

wvgal_dana said...

Suzanne since we can see "color" dab alittle paint on each of the sticks. Then we will know if they used them. lol

Suzanne said...

LOL, yeah, thought about that. Actually was gonna get a red one, blue one, and white one. But thought the babies might not care for the paint, so changed my mind!

wvgal_dana said...

Tie ribbons thin on them that won't hurt the babies. In those colors then you can see if your sticks were used.

wvgal_dana said...

Of course if George is in there too as Sharon said. You might see your sticks with ribbons on them in George's nest lol

Glo said...

Well Suzanne If you do get some sticks and they can read, and we see them in the Nest we will ALL know a winning picture when we see it.

Dana Anyone who wants to download Fraps and learn to take the screenshots CAN take pictures of Lun Lun and Buta Buta, that is exactly what that Baby Love picture is on there right now. You just have to take a chance and learn to do it. We are all going to want MORE of us to know to do this I think as the eagle Season progresses. We have last years fledges because Sharon chose to learn that program, and recorded them for us as she is the one up at that UnGodly hour. LOL Of course come to think of it, many many of us were UP early and stayed up as lante as we could to enjoy "our family". And if I remember correctly someone asctually spent wee morning hours watching for Lun Lun and Freida to birth their babies. Why not give it a try? Fraps.com

wvgal_dana said...

If I remember the Arts are suppose to be in the building that our table was set up in. The auditorium is there.

Suzanne said...

Oh my, the travels of the PA sticks for the eagles nest! How 'bout a little tiny camera, we could REALLY watch closeup! You know, like those spy cameras? Wouldn't that be cool.

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE---Thanks for the offer---but STEVEN says to click on link & I did----So many---to choose from---I have heard of "HOOT"--(2 daughters teach 2nd grade)--some w/be held at Shepherd University--I think----EAGLE BUDDIES---did you note at NCTC they will be shown in BYRD Auditorium---That name rings a bell!!

Suzanne said...

Where did MemaJo go? Dana, we were in the Commons(?) I think. Oh geesh, how quickly we forget!

wvgal_dana said...

Glo I was thinking about doing Fraps but I am not sure if my computer can take it.
I am still running Windows ME....have to buy another computer in order to get Windows XP. Not ready to spend that money yet. Not sure how much room "Fraps" will take up on my computer space.???

Suzanne said...

Yeah, saw that Normabyrd. The auditorium is in the main building, I think. We watched the Dances with Wolves there.

wvgal_dana said...

Can you send me the link for the fraps that you downloaded and also the free ones link. I go in and try to find out how much space they will need. Would want to do free one first to see if I can do it lol might not be as fast as you all are lol

MEMA Jo said...

Suzanne I just sent email with info about the Potomac Arts Festival.
The list of the films being presented is very impressive! There is a lot of participation

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE---You are lucky to be so close to NCTC----There were several that looked very interesting----

wvgal_dana said...

I know what's for dinner tonight since it is cold out. Campbell's Tomato soup (just a bit of milk in it) and grilled cheese sandwiches.
Ed will be in seventh heaven.

Warm the enters

wvgal_dana said...

Just entering Romney to Shepherstown 1 hr 55 mins.

Just entering Chambersburg to Shepherstown 57 mins

Although I don't know who far from Romney or Chambersburg each of you live. That is just and est. and then you have to go to NCTC.

Glo said...

Dana The link is

Fraps.com

caution though Video files are huge, so yes maybe do nOT do the videos til you get more hard drive on another computer...

really I think I took out my laptop with the Fraps videos I was taking during the Flapping Memorial day weekend. BUT Still screenshots You could probably do fine with. They have a contact us on that link. Ask them about the Windows ME and how much space, if it will operate on your system etc.

Good luck

wvgal_dana said...

Pete's Pond is up

CABUK said...

Hi girls,

I see Doreen has told you all about our trip over to Africa today, not quite sure if I like the graphics of animal nature in the raw, but as WAVELIT is the only Africam that working at the moment, Pete's Pond is down again due to an electrical storm last night.
and we have watched our Pandas Mai and Tai being paraded infron of the TV cameras again with Brenda being so cutsie pie again,,, and our new little girl in Atlanta is growing so fast she will soon be up and walking.
Last night, or this moning at 3 am, I watched a TV prog about Ospreys on their journey from Marthers Vinyard right down to Cuba, and how they survived the journey, even though they had a lot of problems with Bald Eagles dive bombing them and taking there food, well needless to say, out of 3 of them, only one Osprey got there alive, sod but again its nature isnt it girls.
Hope all is well with you.

Chrissy
XXXXXXXX

wvgal_dana said...

I love the sound of the "wild" when I'm living in civilization so to speak.

Glo said...

Ok ,Dana You have mail

I am off to the Post Office

normabyrd said...

DANA---I can drive to Shepherdstown in about 1 1/2 hrs. (from Romney) if traffic is moving---I cut through Inwood & the Hatchery road----Are you planning to ride the POTOMAC EAGLES TRAIN?-----It is AWESOME!!---

mauley said...

Doreen, I don't know if I can watch the bamboons again. It broke my heart. Hello everyone. donna

Suzanne said...

Jo, I got your email and answered you. Thanks for sending that!

Yes, the list is impressive, Normabyrd. Are you coming?

Right now, this minute, I'm planning on attending. I'll really have to wait and see how tired I'm going to be in the morning. But hey, got my GO JUICE, I'll just take that with me!

wvgal_dana said...

Norma what times of the year are good so to see eagles?? Might have to wait till next year. Also do you know how much it cost?

mauley said...

Crissy, it was awful wasn't it. donna

normabyrd said...

I think BUTA BUTA is going to climb over mom's back SOON---Aren't those two sleepy people!!!!What is Mom going to do when she has to stay awake a little longer!! I have notice our "Little Prince" appears to be "lurking" today---God love his little heart!!!

Suzanne said...

Man, nobody's home at the moment. George (or Georgette) is not even visiting! MT nests everywhere.

MEMA Jo said...

Dana Eagle Train

http://www.potomaceagle.info/

DLTUK said...

Hello Donna, I dont think we have spoken to each other before. Nice to meet you. I did think my blog had got lost in the ether as no one was responding to it. Yes I agree about the baboons, we all know that nasty things happen in the wild but to actually see it is not nice at all. Hope you are well. Doreen xx

mauley said...

I miss the pink Kitty. Has anyone heard from Nilla???? donna

MEMA Jo said...

Pete's Pond quickly
Beautiful large lepoard

normabyrd said...

DANA----I see MEMA JO has given you the email for the train---I have gone in spring & fall---When you see the eagles flying along side you----It literally takes your breath away---They have different prices----when I used to go it wasn' that expensive---but now you can eat a meal or buy snacks, etc.----

mauley said...

Mauley is well. I have a tender heart. I have a reverence for life like Albert Schweitzer, I suppose. I think everything has a right to live and a purpose on the earth or it wouldn't be here. I honor life, even if it is a snake, a snail, or spider. I know, gals, we talked about not going there. Now a roach is different. I don't know their purpose, but you gils know what I mean.

Suzanne said...

Hi Doreen. Has it warmed up over there any?

wvgal_dana said...

Leopard is beautiful and drinking along time.

mauley said...

Mema Jo, I have missed something. Send link to Eagle Train. It would be a dream come true. thanks donna

wvgal_dana said...

Norma what month did you go when the eagles flew along the train?

Mits said...

Oh my, Jo, he is beautiful.

wvgal_dana said...

That was worth a pic for sure. My quote for glo's pics "Can a leopard change his spots?"

Mits said...

ELEPHANT AT PETES' POND!

mauley said...

I must be blind,Dana. There was my pink kitty all along.

Mits said...

Jo, I just tried that link says page cannot be displayed?? Can you send it by e-mail, please.

Mits said...

That elephant is having a nice bath!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Suzanne said...

Mits, I just checked it out, worked for me. I'll send it to you via email.

On the way.

Mits said...

BYE-BYE, ELLI!!

MEMA Jo said...

Let me check on my favorites that the link for the eagle train is working - then I'll send it to you Mits & Mauley.

I got so excited over seeing the large spotted cat that I spelled
Leopard incorrectly - Guess you all knew exactly what I meant.


Chrissy & Doreen - the crock incident with the baboons: I missed it and I am glad that I did in a way. My question is- you were watching Pete's Pond with Fatty the crocodile, weren't you?

Mits said...

Thanks, Suzanne, got it. This stuff never works in my search engine when I do it straight from the blog.....WOW LOOK AT ALL THE ELEPHANTS AT PETES'

DLTUK said...

Hi Jo, firstly love no it was Wavelit not Petes Pond, there is a very hungry healthy croc in that pond too, so when you are watching beware he can sometimes shock you.

Secondly Danathe big cat you were watching at Petes Pond was a juvenile female cheetah. She was stunning wasnt she and such a treat to see a big cat. If you want to see lions and other big cats its best to watch during night time hours, they tend to sleep during the hot sun and come to drink at night. Doreen xx

Mits said...

OMG, THERE ARE DOZENS OF ELEPHANTS AT PETES'

normabyrd said...

DANA & MAULEY---www.potomaceagle.info---The Oct. Fall Foliage Trips ended 10/27/06----contact them they sometimes run specials----CALL (304) 424-0736--They will also send you a brochure-----I went ONE time & we didn't see the eagles (8 yrs. ago)----but they are more plentiful along the South Branch River now!!!!! YOU CAN SEE THEM ACROSS RIVER SITTING IN THE TREES---& THEY LITERALLY WILL FLY WITH YOU----The scenery is spectacular----

wvgal_dana said...

Need help those of you using Fraps select the start menu folder in which you want programs shortcuts. Which program did you all select???

normabyrd said...

MAULEY---I have a set of Ray Harm plates---they are at least 35 yrs old.---I only have 1 or 2 of his prints---I collected and have several Don Whitlatch bird prints (WV artist)---I have quit collecting now that my children are gone---But I do treasure Harm's plates---Songbirds--12--Spode----

Mits said...

AAAAWWW! look at that little elephant at Petes' Pond.

MEMA Jo said...

Doreen Thank you so much for warning me about a Croc also being in the Wavelit pond. More suspense!

I am the one who called it a leopard - I saw the cheetah'a pic, but admit I didn't know the difference. Thanks again for keeping me 'in the know'.

wvgal_dana said...

Jo I called it a :) leopard too. So you weren't alone lol


Is Pete's Pond down again ???

And is there only a black screen on Wavelit?

normabyrd said...

DOREEN & CHRISSY---GREAT to hear from you all---I UNDERSTAND nature, but sometimes it is terribly hard to watch----I know the eagles eat other birds to survive & I can accept that (BECAUSE I LOVE EAGLES)----I am a real HIPACRITE-(SP)---What are you doing watching the animals at 3:00 a.m.??? Maybe I misunderstood you all----How cold is your weather---we are 39° in WV---will be around 25° tonight----Have you made your "kitty slippers" yet?---KIDDING---Take care---Stay WARM!--NORMABYRD

Suzanne said...

Ok everyone, time for me to hit the road.

All have a good weekend. Try to stay warm! Maybe I'll see some of you at NCTC tomorrow. Heck, maybe I'll see Liberty and Belle, which is what I'm hoping!

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

MEMA Jo said...

Tai is up in the tree (with no leaves)

CABUK said...

Hi girls,
Just had Doreen panicing over the Matriachs new born elle at Petes Pond, the baby was struggling to get out of the water when mum told her to get out Fatty was aboutm but the little madam was playing mum and auntie up and I bet she gets a good telling off.

Well isnt it just the way,, we get a croc at Petes pond and then we find out there one at Wavelit as well, oh will our nerves stand it I say !!!!
I think I've aged 10 years today over it all.

Love
Chrissy
XXXXXX

MEMA Jo said...

My Wavelit is down - Pete's is up but not showing anything right now.

DLTUK said...

Oooo sorry Jo and Dana, that will teach me to read before I blog, thought it was you Jo who called that gorgeous big cat a leopard. Leopards are a much chunkier animal and their spots are in groups on their bodies. Cheetahs on the other hand are built for speed, much leaner, longer in the limbs and their spots are random on their bodies. Yes beware when watching Wavelit cos he is in there and just waiting for a meal. Doreen xx

wvgal_dana said...

BBL have to take out Fraps ME won't support it

CABUK said...

Hi Norma pet,

Yes I have ME you see and it makes me have sleep problems, and TV is a great help when you cant sleep.

and its was 8degrees below freezing here again last night.

My two cats are 15 years old and they have found their kittenhood again, and driving me nuts.

3am in the morning here is 10pm with you I think Norma.

well its dinner time now so I will be back later I hope speak soon Take care

Chrissy
XXXXXXX

Glo said...

Dana Sorry about the FRAPS..It would be great to have someone else be able to do this. I did however encourage you here to ASK them first about if it would run on ME...I am nOT at all familiar about that system. WEnt from 98 to 2000 to xp...missed that one completely. tell Santa you want a large hard drive and XP for Christmas LOL> Still will be plety of time to download it and learn it before eggs hatch

CABUK said...

Mema jo.

Wavelit in Africa closed at 5pm there time so it will be down at midday with you I think, or so it says on the blurb pet

Chrissy
XXXXXXX

Glo said...

NOTE If there is something on here today that I need to read, and it has the word,

Croc, eat ,Bamboon, etc...I will miss that as I just go right on by from that point.

So if it is important for me to know..please just email me that info or put it in a seperate post here. I just can't read that and won't be going there today. I just can't. OK Thanks

Mits said...

ELEPHANTS STILL AT PETES', STORM GOING ON!!

Mits said...

Some...HANKY PANKY..going on between 2 elephants at Petes' Pond.

MEMA Jo said...

I hear ya, Glo


Mei is giving Tai a very hard frollic of a time!

normabyrd said...

MITS---MITS---MITS---How do you always find animals---acting like animals---when you are watching????---Are you resuming your education--SEX 102 at PETE'S ACADEMY???

MEMA Jo said...

Please look at Tai on Cam 2

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

The Potomac Arts Festival is being held in conjunction w/ the Film Festival, they have juried craft artists on the NCTC grounds on Sat and Sunday.

normabyrd said...

CHRISSY---I feel your pain regarding not being able to sleep---I went through that a few years back----I bet TV would be a big help----I was too lazy to come down stairs---I did do alot of reading---helped some---TAKE CARE!!

MEMA Jo said...

Tai went so high, the camera lost him in that tree.

Glo said...

Mits You have mail

Thanks Mema Jo

MEMA Jo said...

Mits - your hanky panky remark was described very well by Norma LOL

Told you to watch out for that
bull elephant!

MEMA Jo said...

OK, NORMA
What you going to do with your
100 lbs of wax?

MEMA Jo said...

Buta Buta has a really warm soft pillow for her head now. Comfy!

MEMA Jo said...

YEAH !! Tai is climbing down.
Hope he goes and joins him mom.

MEMA Jo said...

I guess that Mei & Tai are waiting for their treats. Hope they soon come before they knock each other silly.

MEMA Jo said...

All MT nest for the eagles.
I will return later - things to get done!

Mits said...

I guess, I'm just lucky, Norma:):):):)!

mauley said...

Glo, I so sorry. Normabyrd, your Ray Harm plates are priceless. I have most of the songbird prints. I hope you enjoy your plates as much as I do my prints. donna

mauley said...

Mits, you are a delight to us. donna

mauley said...

Thanks mema Jo I got the link and it worked. donna

Mits said...

Thank You, Donna:):):)

Glo said...

Mauley No its OK really, to each his own, its just too hard for me to read and enjoy...and I don't want to miss someting importan, that I needed to know

Pretty tenderhearted and down right supersinsitive at times too , and I haven't outgrown it Its just who I am.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

EAGLE IN MAINE..........

Mits said...

NEVER MIND IT JUST FLEW AWAY.

Mits said...

The moon is shing on the water up in Maine...but eagle has not come back...yet.

Mits said...

Well that has been really beautiful, watching the moon rise up in Maine, too bad the eagle did not stay longer.

MEMA Jo said...

Good shot of Lun Lun and her baby girl!

Mits said...

Looks like a party going on at Petes' Pond.

Mits said...

Figures just as I say that they are leaving.

MEMA Jo said...

Man! Look how big Buta Buta is.

Mits said...

Maybe we should start calling her TUBA-TUBA!!

MEMA Jo said...

Either that or Buta Ball. She is so adorable - it will be so much fun watching her grow and develop.

I guess Tai is in the cubby hole tonight where his Mom can't get him.

Mits said...

Smart panda cub!!!

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Brrrr!!!

It is cold outside! Did I hear someone mention brass monkey's earlier?

Took one dog for a walk. When I got back, I had to find my earmuffs to put on for the second walk! My ears were freezing.

Looked at the temp when I got back 10 minutes ago, and it is 32° here.

Just Vicky said...

Paula, thought you would be off to visit your son this weekend??

Just Vicky said...

Buta Buta Tuba Tuba is all alone sleeping like the baby she is!

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Mits said...

WOW!!!! That sunrise is awesome.

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Pete's is beautiful, thanks Mits!

MEMA Jo said...

Look at the sunrise at Pete's Pond

Mits said...

Kinda reminds me of Easter Sunrise. Looks like sun is going behind the clouds. They are getting up and we are going down:):). Cam guy is moving the cam away from the sun now. Looking at bird on the top of that tree stump.

Mits said...

Ok, name that bird.

Mits said...

Sounds like ducks around, can't keep sound up, might wake hubby.

MEMA Jo said...

It's know as the Early Bird

Mits said...

ROFLMBO!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD ONE, JO

Mits said...

Now some black-footed something or other are drinking some water.

Mits said...

That looks like a bent-tailed fox.

Mits said...

Poor thing looks stressed out.

MEMA Jo said...

Mei is beating up on Tai again!

I wish she would settle down and go to sleep.......... Very Very Restless.

Mits said...

Some on should give that poor thing a valium...she is making me nervous. I've never seen her this bad. Its like she wants him to nurse, but maybe it hurts when he tries.

Glo said...

If all goes well we should have a new Blogger showing up in here very soon

Mits said...

Ok Dr. Mits thinks it is a UTI or some sort of breast infection...this is not normal behavior for MEI...she likes to eat and sleep, or sleep and eat.

Kim said...

Hi This is Kim

Glo said...

Hi Kim You made it!!! Good for you

Kim said...

Hi This is Kim

Glo said...

Sounds like Mits Is diagnosing a urinary track infection on a Mama Panda

Glo said...

I see you Kim Not sure how many are still in here, its late almost 11:30 on the east Coast

Mits said...

BOOYAH, KIM, WELCOME ABOARD:):):)

Glo said...

Now all you need to do is type whatever you want to and hit login and publish...you won't have to fill the rest in unless you log out then you will need to know the info you typed in to get to your name in blue.

Glo said...

LOL Well she got in here. Not sure where she went now though. Hopefully she is typing another message. LOL

Glo said...

Kim Are you still in here? Mits Thanks for saying Hi to her. She'll be back if she's gone but it might not be tonight LOL.

Kim said...

Glo, Thanks so much, I will work on all this tomorrow afternoon,and try and get some profile stuff on here so you know a bit about me, Thanks for welcoming me mits and glo.

Glo said...

Well I'm not sure what happened with Kim but if we got this far tongith, we can get back here again, but it might have to wait. I am tired and getting ready to say good Night. I will BLOG at you all tomorrow. Sleep well.

Glo said...

OK Kim You are very welcome!!!

Mits said...

Maybe I scared her off. Hi, Kim!! I won't be sooo loud. :):) I'm just extremely concerned about MEI, they are still running the cams at this late hour. I think they are concerned too.

Kim said...

yes I am still here LOL , another new thing to learn,on the computer at my age that will be a feat Thanks so much for all your help Please stay warm, as it is suppose to be very cold tonight

Kim said...

I don't mean to be rude but who is mei and who is watching her and where is she LOL, I worried enough about the eagles last year now you are telling me theres more to watch

MEMA Jo said...

Welcome Kim I may be too late to catch you leaving. I'll look for you tomorrow.

I am exhausted from watching Mei and Tai. They are still going at it. Perhaps Mei's testosterone levels are beginning to rise and that is why she is restless... That's the reason for Tian Tian’s restlessness. WHAT EVER

Time to say Good Night All
& sweet dreams - Stay warm

Mits said...

Don't worry KIM We will get you up to speed. Jo and I have been watching Mei Xiang and her cub Tai Shan at the National Zoo in Washington D.C. They are a pair of Giant Pandas.

MEMA Jo said...

Kim Mits, our panda expert, may be answering you as I write this. Mei is the mother panda of Tai, our precious 1 yr+ little boy at the DC Zoo. There are 2 cams that we watch.

If you want to email me, I'll send you links.....

jo_lennox@hotmail.com

Maybe tomorrow you could also join our Eaglet_Momsters group. All the links are in there also plus photos.
I don't want to get your head spinning with too much info. In
what state do you live.(timewise)

Mits said...

Going to say GOOD NIGHT TO YOU ALL! Temp here is 32°. Stay warm!!

MEMA Jo said...

I think that Mei was settled down and now Tai is being a little pest...
Can't win. I need to go to bed......
Night

Mits said...

Me too, I'm afraid someone is going to get hurt:(:(:(

movin said...

AH HA!! Not too likely anyone will beat me to saying "GOOD SATURDAY MORNING" this time.

I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the heck out of it....

Jim

LisaInTennessee said...

Vicky-ummmm, if you leave your brass monkeys out when it's really cold....they'll freeze their little nuggets off....lmao I hope this doesn't offend anyone.

LisaInTennessee said...

By the way...GOOD MORNING everyone!! I've got plenty of leaves to get to the curb if any of you fine folks live nearby and need some exercise.

DLTUK said...

Morning Lisa and anyone else up this early. Fatty is basking on the shore of Petes Pond - gruesome boy he is too. Doreen xx

Glo said...

Good Morning all. Looks like the gals fromt he UK are in early our time LOL. Hope everyone is having and will have a Great saturday. i am sure those going to the Film Fest at NCTC are in for a treat.

Glo said...

Lisa if you wait for the wind to blow hard enough, the leaves blow to your neighbors. LOL Just kidding...stay warm if you're going out to rake leaves. Mine and my neighbors are ALmost taken care of.

wvgal_dana said...

Hi Welcome Lisa again good seeing you on here.
Good Morning all Eagle lovers


Lisa I just read an article in the paper. It said either mulch with mower or let the leaves lay. They are the best mulch for your ground. They are a natural (like in the forest) for making the soil better and also controlling bacterias.

MEMA Jo said...

Good Morning All. We have some real early birds on here this morning..
Hi Lisa & Doreen. Glo, I got an email from Kim and sent her a good many links. Thanks for bringing her on here. Dana, I saw George in the nest around 9:30am. He better find a new house.
Hope Suzanne could sight Liberty & Belle today when she goes over to NCTC and give us a report.

Just Vicky said...

Good mid-morning! Is the Eaglet_Momster's going to have a table set up today at NCTC??

MEMA Jo said...

No table - Suzanne is just going over to the Potomac Arts Festival and the Film Festival that Steve had on yesterday's blog.

MEMA Jo said...

Beautiful sunset at Pete's Pond.

I will return later - Things to get done...

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!! Beautiful sunset at Petes' Pond.

Mits said...

Fatty is on Petes' Pond now...first time I've seen him.

Mits said...

Mei still seems restless today. I watched her til well after midnight and she wore me out. Glad to see Tai is still around:).

MEMA Jo said...

My thoughts exactly, Mits. First thing I did this morning was check out the DC cams.

Mits said...

The elephants or at the POND.

Mits said...

That baby elephant is so cute.

wvgal_dana said...

Back again I might need to win the WAX to take care of computer problems.

wvgal_dana said...

Wished they would show what all the splashing is about at Petes Pond

Mits said...

Its the elephants drinking at the POND.
