Mits said...

Light at KENT! I got up last night around 12:30 and saw some wonderful Giraffes at Wave-lit Africam, wish I knew how to take pics there.

Mits said...

Good Morning, JIM How are you feeling, over that darn cold, yet. Don't forget to get your FLU SHOT! That goes for everyone, lets stay healthy out there, don't want to miss anytime with "our eagles"!

Mits said...

BAMBOONS AT WAVE-LIT...AFRICAM.

Suzanne said...

Alright, Dr. Mits has Bamboons. All is right with the world!

Thanks for the new thread, Steven!

Thanks for telling us, Mits.

Mits said...

Looks like some newborn bamboons!!

Mits said...

Mom is carrying a nursing bamboon.

Mits said...

SUNSET at Petes' Pond.

Mits said...

Cute shot of Tai up the tree!!

Suzanne said...

Man, MT nests everywhere. These guys must have taken a long weekend!

Mits said...

Tai is eating the tree that he is in!!

Mits said...

Tai just climbed up out of the cam's view.

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Hey Suz,
Did you look at any of the crafts they had at the film festival?

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Mits said...

Cool..looks like a storm in the area.

Suzanne said...

Yes, Paula, went to the Potomac Arts Festival first. It was in the Commons, but not in the same building we were in. Beautiful stuff. Didn't buy much, just a couple things. Saw an absolutely beautiful picture of wolves (which I love), but it was going for $3,500! Needless to say, it was still there when I left! But it was nice.

Then I went to the main bldg, saw Hoot in the auditorium, visited with the raptor rehabilitator, went to pollute my lungs, saw a red tailed hawk, went back inside to the north area and watched another movie. Very good. Then left, and saw our babies. They were also there Sunday, but that was my sleep day.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning everyone in Eagleland!! I had a wonderful weekend. Went to a spiritual retreat this weekend as well as the Beaver ballgame on Saturday. It was just an absolutely wonderful time, one that I have been needing for a while. Thanks Mits for reporting the ballgame score for me on Saturday. Beavers were a-jamming that day!

Remember to do random acts of kindness. The rewards are great!

Mits said...

Weather in Port St. Lucie, Florida...temp 81° and winds out of the ENE gusting to 22mph.

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING, SHARON! Glad you had a great weekend!!

MEMA Jo said...

Hello Everyone! Almost lunch time - I've spent time with email pics from Mits since all nest are MT. I did watch some 'ducks' on wavelit..
Welcome Home Sharon
Paula I can bring up FL real player but can't bookmark it..Were you able to?
Suzanne Can't wait to see the pics.
ButaBall is getting so big!
What in the world's name is on DC Cam 1?

eagle-eyed sharon said...

The Florida eagle cam is making me a little dizzy.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Panda Cam 1 looks like a panda documentary or something.

Mits said...

Jo, it looked like a tiger cub. Don't know what they are up to with that cam????

Mits said...

Mei on #1 and Tai on #2..now

MEMA Jo said...

Just glad you saw them too. Thought they were raccoons - ringed tail and all. Cute little faces but Not Pandas.
They must be in the same yard & just caught the camera's attention.

MEMA Jo said...

Tai the little tree climber eats anything!

mauley said...

Good Noon to everyone. Mits, I did get a chance to see the little bamboon. So excited over our little Suzanne's trip. I can only imagine what it is like to see Liberty and Belle and the nest. I got chills all over when I read the posting. Thanks for sharing, and has anyone heard from Nilla lately. Haven't had time to read all of weekend blog, but was absolutely thrilling to read about the nest. BBL love to all donna

MEMA Jo said...

It amazes me how many people walk by unknowingly that Tai is right there in that tree. At least Lou knew where to look.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

If this new picture works, it is of Andrew and I on Senior Night.

Mits said...

Great picture..SHARON. What a wonderful night that was. Hello, MARLEY/DONNA! Since they are apart of the ASIA trail, that might have been the red pandas, JO.

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Jo,
If you go to the florida site, and then "click here for stand alone player" it brings it up in real player. Then go to favorites ( you may have to click on the >> to see it,) and click on "add clip to favorites. It saved mine under the name eaglecam2.

mauley said...

Sharon, I love the picture of you and Stephen. Isn't senior night so sad, in a way. When my last child was a senior, I always thought "This is the last senior night for me." This is the last home game this season for me. This is the last Christmas I will have one in high school. You know, it is the last for everything high school wise, everything that they do. Don't think too much about it, though, cause you might cry. Wonderful pic of both of you. Stephen is so handsome. He seems to be so proud of you, too. I love that look on his face. Better hold on to that photo, too. love mauley

Suzanne said...

Time for me to hit the road. Have to get gas and go to WalMart! Blog at y'all tomorrow.

Have a good afternoon/evening.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

mauley said...

pardon me, Sharon, I got stephen on the brain, somehow. I think I have called Andrew - stephen before. Don;'t know my own nephew's name. Bad Bad Aunt. Get out the wet noodle, Mits, on me. love mauley

Mits said...

MAULEY I get never hit you with a wet noodle. I'm sure, Sharon knew who you meant.

Mits said...

Tai is acting like a silly boy with Mei.

MEMA Jo said...

Don't feel badly, Mauley, I once called Andrew, Michael. Remember that one Sharon?

Mits I bet they were the red pandas. But I need to look at them and check out if they have a tail.

MEMA Jo said...

Your right, Mits. It was red pandas that I saw.

Sharon That is a fabulous pic of you and Andrew. I hope you're making a scrapbook for his senior year in your spare time. lol

MEMA Jo said...

Treat time! Cam 2.

Mits said...

AWWW!!! they are really enjoying their treats!

MEMA Jo said...

Out of here to run some errands
BBL

Mits said...

Me too...TTUL!!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I know who you all mean, no matter what name you give him. Just checking in from my sister's. Check back in later.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Going to go check out some cams, maybe I will try the New FL one.

Not sure at all what to do with the Web Cam Photo Contest tonight. Unless I get some entries for the New Loop from some of you we might just call it Photo of the week for last week, and I will let you know who won. I am not so sure the timing or idea for this was all that good. We might just end it here today on a winning note! LOL MTBR for that one.

Hope all are having a good afternoon. Will BLOG at you later.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Mits said...

KENT CAM IS DOWN!

MEMA Jo said...

The Kent cam 1 (foggy one) is up but nest is MT. Glad to report that ALL pandas are sleeping - even the little ledge lodger.
I think Dana's pc must have blown - haven't heard from her in awhile on here. I am hoping she and Ed are both ok.
Missed your BW excitement. Darn It !

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Wow, Mits , just got that! (Poor Bugs Bunny, not bugs (yuck)

Good Night All
Sweet Dreams of Security Clearance
for our cam to come up!!


Good Morning Suzanne

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Just checking in to say good night. Mattie is staying with me so we are going to find something on TV to watch.

Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur!

Glo said...

Good Night all. Yes Prayers going up this way for that security clearance whatever it involves to get our cam up and running. Goodnight liberty and Belle, watch over them well from The Guard Above and the guard below.

Mits said...

I'm heading out to watch some TV also...Anybody know where to get a TMX ELMO....let me know. I just heard about him, and would like to get MAGGIE one for her 1st Christmas, but it looks like it is going to be one of the those beat each other up kind of toys, and I don't fight over toys. GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE!! Praying for security clearance.

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Evening to whomever is still here, and whomever returns!

Mits, I was laughing at the Bugs thingy! Poor Bugs bunny, not bug bugs.

Suzanne said...

Good Morning, Eagle World! Beautiful night...bit cold, few stars, big moon.

Ok, I added Liberty and Belle pics to Momsters. Made a new album, has 5 pics in it. 3 are from the NCTC open house, where you can get a good (well, decent) look at the nest to compare. 2 are of Liberty and Belle Sat night. Bear in mind, it IS getting very dark. Didn't realize how dark it was getting till I saw the pics yesterday. But you can see them in the branch above the nest. You can also notice how much the nest has grown.

Phew, wanted to get that done FIRST THING!! Enjoy. (But gonna have to get a bigger camera, and/or lens, too grainy for me at night.)

All have a great eagle day!

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

Ok, MT nest at BW (of course), Kent cam 2 shows "NO VIDEO" and there appears to be an eagle in Maine, but it's not quite that light yet. It's still dark, but not dark enough for this time of day, so I'm guessing they're just posting a picture. Kent Cam 1 has a nest view from October, so that must be down also.

Dang! Where's our cam????

Suzanne said...

Eagle in BW!!

Suzanne said...

Maine nest is good now, but MT. Kent has updated cam 1, but it's fuzzy.

Suzanne said...

Mate just arrived in BW. 2 there now!

Suzanne said...

One just left, 2nd to arrive still there.

Suzanne said...

Well, eagle still hanging around in BW, Maine nest is MT, but a beautiful view!

Suzanne said...

Just this second left BW! Maine still MT!

Glo said...

Good Morning Suzanne. Thanks for the pictures. Just plan on seeint those again no matter how dark and grainy they are. Definitely "Our eagles" and the start of this New eagle Season. Hope your day is good. Mine includes a job interview first thing this mornign. Going back to work 2 days a week faily soon, but this will involve somethig i love to do.

Suzanne said...

Morning, Glo! Glad you could see the pics, even though they are dark. Good luck with your interview. At least it's something you love to do, that makes it all worth while, I think!

Glo said...

Blogger off to a very bad start today. Sure hope it straightens up soon. Off to coffee and dog treats.

Suzanne said...

Glo, love your new pic of your dogs. They are soooo cute!!! Look like little fuzz balls that like to play a lot! No wonder they get dog treats every day! Such cuties!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning Eagleland. Trying to get back in the swing of things with work. It is really hard though! Make a wonderful day.

Remember, do random acts of kindness. The rewards are great!

Suzanne said...

Been talking to Dana. She has a new computer she's setting up and it's giving her headaches. Hopefully, she's almost done and will be on here to blog at everybody later today.

She sent hi and {{{hugs}}} to all!

Suzanne said...

Don't forget to vote today!

MEMA Jo said...

MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT

Good Morning All. Thanks Suzanne for the update on Dana...was getting concerned. I am headed over to momsters to see those pics - right now!
Hang In There Sharon - the process of work will all come back to you
Unfortunately

MEMA Jo said...

Suzanne That first pic took my breath away - I could have stared at it forever. I know you think it's grainy - but sure looks like a star speckled sky - so romantic for our Liberty & Belle.

Suzanne said...

Eagle back in BW!!!

Suzanne said...

Oh, Jo, I'm glad you liked it. It was so nice to see them, where they belong! Did you notice the nest looks deeper than it was? They're busy little beavers! Just wish we could watch them being so busy!

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Suz,
Great pics!

At least one cam is up at Kent!

Hope ours comes up soon!

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

And don't forget to vote!!!

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

HA!

Wax!

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!!! SUZANNE, your pics are fabulous, darling!!!! I can just feel your excitement over seeing them. Sent out the news to some of you about the Maryland Department of Natural Resources buying the land around BW to preserve it for the future...I'm happy as a clam about that one!!! REMEMBER IF YOU DON'T VOTE.....YOU HAVE NO VOICE!!! Doesn't matter who you are for...just such a privilege to be able to vote in this wonderful country of ours..the USA Home to LIBERTY AND BELLE GOD BLESS THE USA!!!!!

Mits said...

Yeah, WAX for PAULA!!

Suzanne said...

Eagle left BW, blackbirds arrived. They're trying to clean up any scraps...

Glad you liked the pics, Mits!

Was also VERY glad to hear about Blackwater!! Made my day!

Suzanne said...

Blackbirds gone. Guess they gave up on that one! Probably not too many scraps.

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Little black birds at BW looking for scraps

Mits said...

Blackbird back at BW. They look so tiny compared to the eagles and Mr, Ewwie.

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Mits,
That was great news about Blackwater, thanks for sending it.

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

In case anyone is interested, my new picture is of an eagle that was soaring around Route 85 near Adamstown Rd, in Frederick MD. Maryland State Highway crew members repaving the road nearby said they saw the bird pick up a piece of roadkill and fly off with it.

From the Frederick News Post, Nov 5, 2006.

Suzanne said...

Awesome pic, Paula! Nice to know a lot of eagles are staying in the area.

Mits said...

Paula, great picture and great story:):):).

Mits said...

By George, its raining in Bluefield!!!!!

Mits said...

MT nest in Florida.

Mits said...

They have just changed the view at Florida..made it closer, maybe there will be some action soon.

Mits said...

Taking a ride on the tunda buggy right now..polar in view...wind blowing...COLD, yikes!

Mits said...

2 polar bears nuzzling each other. Think they are saying...Hello.

Mits said...

JO,you have mail!! I hope:):):).

Mits said...

Polar bear is coming closer to the buggy...

Mits said...

Polar bear just found some left-overs...yummy..

Suzanne said...

Mits, he's doing better than those blackbirds did at BW!

Mits said...

HELLO, STEVEN, HOW ABOUT A NEW TUESDAY THREAD FOR ELECTION DAY!!

Mits said...

I don't even want to guess how long whatever he is eating has been there, but it must freeze well.

Suzanne said...

Well, the Ewwwwie vacuum is now in BW. That's gotta be the cleanest wild bird nest around!

Suzanne said...

LOL Mits on the freezing! Between the Ewwie sanitation engineer and those blackbirds, the Osprey's are going to be VERY impressed when they come back in the spring! (After the eagles use the place rent free all winter, they have their own cleaning team! How thoughtful!)

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Suz,
LOL :):) Ewwie vacuum.

Suzanne said...

Good iea, Mits! Election Day Thread.

Steven may be off today, he was there all weekend for the Conservation Film Festival. Little workahololic, he was this weekend. (not sure that's spelled correctly, but you know what I mean.)

Suzanne said...

Yeah, but look! Little toot is sleeping on the job now! Man, just can't get good help these days!

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Ewwie looks like he is taking a rest in the nest.

Suzanne said...

LOl, Yup, Paula. (Hate to say it, but I hope he's ok. I've never seen him rest in the nest before, he usually stands around or picks up scraps.)

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

Suz,
I was thinking the same thing!

Mits said...

Your right, Suzanne, he is probably off.

Suzanne said...

OMG, we're getting serious about this nap now! We're just getting comfy!

paula www.eagletmomsters.com said...

He was up and then right back down again...must be pretty quiet there today.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Mits, the rain in Bluefield absolutely matches how I feel. Not having a very good day. Think I have what Andrew had yesterday - feeling feverish with chills, aching from head to toe, just yucky all over more than anywhere else!

Mits said...

Do you think vultures can get e-coli from bad nest scraps???:):)

Suzanne said...

Well, Mits. I guess they deserve a day off too!

Suzanne said...

Hum, don't know Mits. But he's really not acting normal, is he?

Mits said...

He probably has what poor SHARON, has..sorry you are feeling poorly, SHARON.

Mits said...

There looks like a bird of some type with a white head sitting below, to the left of the FLA nest.

Mits said...

Something just flew by the nest..to quick to figure out what it is.

Suzanne said...

Ok, he took off, although it was a big slowly for him.

MEMA Jo said...

Out the door to cast my vote


Hope you feel better real soon, Sharon

Suzanne said...

Ok, time for me to hit the road. Got to go vote, then head home to my nice warm house!

All have a great eagle afternoon and evening. Blog at ya tomorrow.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

Sharon, hope you feel better soon!

Mits said...
