Good Morning, Eagleland ! 6 Days and Counting!
Dana, They are not sure how long between mating and egg laying. Eggs take 35-38 days to hatch.
Please help support the NCTC Eagle Cam.Visit www.eagletmomsters.com Thank you!
Thank you Steven for the new thread.Thank you Paula for the answers.Boy she sure is pretty in Florida. She is eating.
Can anyone tell what she is eating?
Hold on Paula I'm going "in" for a look. Hope I'll bbr
I don't remember them doing any shots of down inside the nest in Florida. Does anyone?Sorry Paula couldn't hang onto that moving tree, didn't get up too far.
I know we are trying to watch eagles.Can't help myself. I rechecked on our Buta Buta she is sleeping now.Ahhhhhh
Thanks for the new thread, Steven. Did you see the older jeuvenile in Kent by any chance? Have you seen our kids in your travels? What's with all the jeuvies hanging around the nests this time of year. One in BW yesterday, one in Kent today, and I guess they've seen them in FL too.Thanks for the heads up, Paula!
Eagle back in Florida looks like it is eating again.
Hello to everyone!! Hey, Paula, I did give out several flyers about the website. And one of my friends said she ordered some things from the site this week. So I will tell even more people this weekend and hopefully you will see some more traffic on the site. BBL, back to work, hands are sore, too much effort to type or use mouse...ouch...
That was Dana with the heads up!She is still eating...must be a big catch...they also backed off a little, good view of nest and tree now...not so wobbly to watch.
Going out for a while. BBL!
Eagle at Florida finished eating sitting up on branch.I still can't believe I said last night I was going to watch Bones. Then remember Rockefeller and called Mom. Then layed down and out I went.
Yes, Dana I will send them to them, haven't had a chance to respond to their e-mail from Tuesday.
Must have needed extra rest, Dana.
GOOD NOON EAGLE BUDDIES---Oh--so many new things happening---I MISSED IT ALL!----Thanks SUZANNE---I was so excited to see the juvies & info regarding the change of color & their age---THANKS STEVEN---for the article on the eagles' plumage---Very interesting---I saw a juvie eagle when I was in Shepherdstown last Fri.---Do you all see any around OUR nest?---can't wait until the MAGIC day---WOW!! SUZ I can't imagine how exciting that must have been when you saw one on the BW nest---Thanks for sharing----GREAT ARTICLE in this Winter-2006 "Nature Conservancy" magazine re: First bald eagle born on Santa Cruz--or in any of the Channel Islands--- in more than 50 yrs.---It's quite a story---
Phew, had to step away for a while, alligators were getting close!Time for me to hit the road. All have a good eagle afternoon and evening. I hope you see some more juvies. Adult in BW.Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!
Take care Suzanne .
MITS---How wonderful for you---(IF I HAD GREEN INK, I WOULD USE IT) Ho!---Learning to be a volunteer at the TAI'S PLACE---How COOL is that---How many are in your class, etc.----I WANT DETAILS---How close were you to the "Little Prince"---MAGGIE'S Grammy works at the ZOO!
Hi Norma good to see you ! (:Paula is the eagle in Florida still sitting up on that branch to the right?
Eagle at BW
Eagle in FL is still on the branch to the right, Dana.
FLORALGIRL---Like your wreath--SUZ----Like your eagle---Has VICKY changed her pic---Ho!---SHARON---How far are you from the Atlanta Zoo?-----Wouldn't it be great to volunteer there??? Take NILLA along for your "Good Luck" charm----ENJOY this GREAT weather---55° here now---tomorrow--WINDY & COLDER!!
Norma, That was a great article. IWS is doing wonderful things on the Channel Islands. You all may remember that is where the first bald eagle hatched in the wild in 50 years this past April. - You can view it athttp://www.nature.org/I have the links to the cams on the momsters site - the link ishttp://www.iws.org/
A beautiful and mild 68° here in Bethesda.
HI---DANA & PAULA---I just haven't gotten caught up---DANA--Did you get a new computer?----PAULA---When does your COLLEGE SON come home?----I bet he loves those finals!!! What fun when he comes home----I still don't understand where GLO is employed---But she seems to like it---That's a GOOD thing---
NOrma, College kid will be home right before XMAS, not sure which day.Glo is volunteering at a women's shelter, I believe.
Nice close up of FL eagle on the branch now...
Eagle is still at BW
Lookk at the Florida pic now she is close up on a branch
Norma it is a Dell that Ed's cousin had. She brought a laptop off her daughter. So I brought this one off her.I love windows XP ! (:Has anyone updated to Internet Explorer 7?
That pic in Florida is awesome. That's what I call "ride'm eaglegirl". Look how she has her talcons.
THANKS PAULA---That is the article I was referring to----I just received my magazine last week---I have belonged to NATURE'S CONSERVANCY forever---They have saved lots of property in our area----Thanks again!!
Good Afternoon! Just got home from getting a hair cut! I really feel & look better. I still need to read some of the previous thread to catch up. These Juvies are surprising me!Where is SpunkyBe back as soon as I catch up...
DANA---I have DELL---I have Windows---My daughter ordered mine for me & I have no idea what all I have----I am still learning---I think it does everything but fix breakfast---Ho! Ho!---Remember when I couldn't get into Atlanta Zoo----Well, I finally unblocked it---So--things are fine now----don't know how to pull up so many screens--Ho!
Dana, both Sharon and I tried Internet Explorer 7 and had some problems, Jim updated and he seemed to do fine with it.
I do one at a time (1) click on Internet Explorer then I have different cams in my favorities. I click the cam I want.Got that one. I make it smaller.(2) I click Internet Explorer again do the same thing but pick a different cam. Got that one. Make that one smaller. They are all listed on your bottom tool bar, after about 5 opening internet explorer and picking the cam I want. on the bottom tool bar they all go together like a list to scroll down. hee hee it is neat
OOps Ed wants me to watch an Adam Sandler movie bbl
NORMABYRD There are 9 in our class, the closest, I got to him was the kitchen, where they prep the food, that is where we will have to sign in before going on duty, its right next to where they monitor the cams.
Think the eagle at BW, is staying put, so no juvie can come visit.
PAULA---I'm not familiar with IWS--Are you a member? Why would you become a member? Nature's Cons. does so many projects in my area---Does IWS serve all over the world?Thanks for introducing me to it---
I have never figured that out Dana, just bring them up individually from the bottom, but you have them all up at one time, don't they go down when you try to blog?
BW GONE, so much for my theory
MEMA JO---I always think when you feel beautiful----you look beautiful----I guess we are going to have to wait to see if our KIDS are dropping by the "old home place"???---Not too much longer---Aren't you PROUD of MITS?---I am!!!
SUZANNE---Do you think that JUVIE would attempt to "claim" the nest---She certainly is moving the furniture----Must be FEMALE---they chose the nest----What time are you watching the nest? a.m.?----
Eagle back in the FL nest
Yes, he/se is Jo, such a great shot of the eagle...Norma are you getting these eagles in FLA????
That is a purty eagle there in FLA.
Ok, eagle is back at FL...was wondering if it hadn't moved in 1 1/2 hours....She just left before I could post...was catching up...Norma, IWS does do stuff all over the world...I think eagle is in the next tre....
They are a smaller organization that works with smaller animal populations...more like specific to certain areas...like the channel islands populations...
Nope, was my imagination, eagle not in the next tree.
Snow is all melted at Kent...The juvie that was there would be too young to take over the nest, and as far as I know, they build their own once they find a mate. I suppose they might use an abandoned nest or a backup nest.
PAULA---I was browsing in the FL Audubon looking for eagles, etc. & I found the IWS---It's similar to Nat. Cons.---Thanks for introducing me to it----
PAULA---I was "half teasing" with SUZ---but the pics she sent me today shows the juvie building the nest---sticks in mouth, etc.---
Mits if I tried to tell you I would mess your mind all up lol
Ahh Buta Buta is laying asleep in the nest. Outside the nest on the concert is Lun Lun sleeping. Mommy and child.
Doesn't seem like I missed alot from the comments.
bbl going to play a game
No MITS--I found the EAGLE CAM in FL----but all I have ever seen is an empty nest----I used the site you gave me---it keeps telling me I can't see that page, etc.----Then I began getting---check back in 30 sec.
It is 60° here in the valley. Rain should be coming in tomorrow. Had a short shower a few minutes ago. My Frosty The Snowman on my porch is going to have a melt down!
Been getting the same msg on and off since last night, Norma..Jo, put a pic of Frosty up...I've been collecting snowman for a very long time...love them til I have to bring them down from attic and put them back...some stay out all year, because they aren't all a Christmas theme...and I just love my snowmen:):):).
Norma - maybe that juvie moving around the sticks was "thanks for letting me drop in and rest" present!Dana - Got the link for Buta-Buta voting for names. What? No Buta buta or Buta ball name on that list as far as I can see!
Paula, Buta Buta will always be our nickname but it's not ever going to be official! lol I think I like Ping or one of the Mings.... I hope they don't vote for a Mei or Tai........
Whoa! Doors just closed on our DC pandas. Both are Safe & inside!
Tai is darn good at finding those treats..
Tai thinks he is HOT STUFF know that he can eat that bamboo.
Yes, the little prince is growing up. I surely hope he can stay another year with us....
MITS---TAI is "HOT STUFF"----Be sure to tell him WE LOVE HIM, next time you see him!!!!!---That's so COOL you collect snow men--(catch)!----It really is---You can probably guess what I COLLECT---DONKEYS & Political Buttons-----They are hard to come by---most don't use them any more----I think collecting is addictive---but FUN!
Yes, Norma I agree, additive, but, fun. I will not be collecting pandas or eagles...going to try to downsize over the next few years and try not to bring any more stuff into this house:):):)
eagle in FLORIDA
both are there...
GONE IN FLA.
Norma- I need to take a look in my miscellaneous (junk) drawer in my dresser. I may be able to find an old political pin to send you... Don't get your hopes up too high - the drawer is a mess.
I wish they would turn the lights dim for Tai when he goes to sleep in the corner. He is always covering his eyes.
MITS:----I started my collection when I was in high school---I collect nothing else---I'm not sure how large my collection is---Must get it to gether some day soon----
My snowman collection started around 30 years ago, I try to keep it under control, but, if I see something unique its hard to resist.
just flew into FLORIDA AGAIN
AND HERE COMES THE OTHER ONE.
Too bad sun has gone down all you can see is their white heads.
Well Buta Buta cam is closedEagles all goneCams cams where are all the camsSan Deigo didn't do too well with their "killer whale" hurt trainer, which it has done before.
No eagles at Kent
The Little Prince is asleep---Think I will fix dinner---LATER--I hope---Tonight's GREY'S ANATOMY--
DANA AND SUZANNE just sent your pictures to Loraine at KENT.
Thanks Mits hope she enjoys them. The way you speak of her I sure think she will.
RAVENS - RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE Norma, GREY'S ANATOMY- won't be on until 1:00am....after the game... You might need to tape that one! lolMits - Is hubby all set to go to the game out in Cincinnati?
Jo, might be the only place to watch game is on NFL NETWORK or Baltimore Channel 2, not sure what you get up in your area, we can't get Baltimore channels on our cable in Montgomery County..Hubbys' trip to Cinncy got cancelled:) Jo, you have mail!!!!!
Sent those of you who I have e-mail addreses Loraines' resonse to the juvie pictures, she was delighted to get them because she missed the visit today. Said parent was in there after dark last night squawking at something, thought now that maybe it was the juvie wanting to get to the nest.
Oh my I've been playing Jewel Quest. My eyeballs are cross eyed now lol
Night fall at KENT, very pretty.
Mits do you have DirecTV or cable for television?
Comcast Cable of Montgomery County.
Do you get the (not the NFL package) but the NFL channel on DirecTV it is 212 called NFL Total Access On Location 5-8pm they do pregame reports, interview, analysis of the game.
We have it on channel 180 here, its had alot of pre-game stuff, sure it is what you are talking about...
When the NFL talk show went off at 8pm EST the football game came on that channel tonight. Cinn. & Ravens
I don't usually watch the games on TV, hate all the analyzing, besides commercials drive me nuts.
Comcast has changed my sign-in page 3 times today...ggggrrrr.
Tai is up and eating.
Wooo Hooo...sliding in to grab to some wax....
How is everyone?Watching the tube?...getting ready to watch Grey's myself...BBL
Tai likes to lay on his back at eat:):):)
Paula - I had mentioned to Norma about Grey's Anatomy on CHN 2 not being on until after the game... about 1 am they said. Is it on another ABC channel? Congrats on the WAX
I'm off to watch Grey's it is on the DC ABC channel.
hee hee guess Tai need a night time snack.
Jo, on channel 7
I see that on beakspeak.com they have removed the Brisbane site in the headlines. It was only a few days ago that I had emailed them that it was finished. They should be placing the FL cam site on the list shortly.
Grey's was good...on to ER now!
Not much going on in here tonight!
HiYa no time to go and read all the blog messages right now in the store after hours cleaning and waxing the hardwood floors.... Mits i am so proud of you and i hope we can get afew of us here close by together and come visit the zoo when your working so we can watch you do your job..lol Hugs to all back to work.....

Good Night All... Sweet Dreams.... Good Morning, SuzanneWe have 10 days to vote for ourButa Buta's official name. It startsat 12:01am Friday and continues thru12:00am Sunday Dec 10th. Vote on ajc.com
Good morning, eagle world. It's absolutely BALMY outside this morning. 65 at my house, up to 66 enroute, and back to 65 here in Falls Church. My jacket (carried) is still in the car. May live to regret that though, it's supposed to get cold, but later this afternoon, I think. I hope.Raining in and around Frederick, but not here, though it has rained and the streets are soaked.All have a great eagle day, have to do some things, then read the blogs to see what I missed.Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!Oh, we made it to FRIDAY!!! Happy Friday, all.
Believe it or not, one of the adult eagles is in the BW nest. It's still dark, but you can see the while head. Just sorta looks like a ghost, cause it's too dark to see the body or feet. Just the head. Man, they're up early...5:30. Earliest I've ever seen them.
Morning, Suzanne..so warm out this morning, just walked the dog wearing flip flops(me,not the dog) Kinda like the calm before the storm right now. Woried about the wind coming with this front. They say 50-60 MPH gusts later today and this evening, Hope it is all gone by morning.
Morning, Floralgirl! Yeah, we have wind advisories in my area. Not looking forward to that. I always have to go find my outdoor cat bowls after heavy winds...usually next door someplace. Don't really have a protected area for the outdoor kitties, it's covered, but not enclosed. Need to get some of those weighted bowls I guess. good idea, then the opossum can't use his paw to tip them over, he'll have to learn to stand on them and stick his snout in and eat.They'res an adult eagle in BW, between the web you can see the white head, but that's about all. Been there since about 5:30. Early birds today!You selling wreaths tomorrow?
Getting light in BW. That is/was not an eagle. It was part of spidey's web that only hits part of the cam light. It's moving in the breeze! Well, fooled me!!One just arrived. Can see the eagle this time!!
Sittinf right next to the place in the web that I thought was an eagle head. Eagle is taller than that place! Wish it was lighter, got a shot of the landing, but it's too dark to see. Just sitting there preetty now.
Mate just arrived and they're squaking!!!
Well, daylight in BW. One went for breakfast, and is now enjoying it.
Uh oh, cam is locked in BW.
Yep, Suzanne, selling wreaths tomorrow in the same place as last week. If the weather is decent it will be busy, lots of activities in town and a parade at 11 am. As long as it's not raining I will do well.
Dang, BW still locked up. Sent an email to Lisa.
BW cam is back, but the one eating breakfast is gone. Other one still there.
GOODMORNING, SUZANNE AND FLORALGIRL Hold onto your flip-flops, Megan, its going to be a bumpy day. 65° right now. I hate it when it changes so abruptly. Zoo day training today. I was hoping to take a nice walk around the zoo after classes, but might just to have to dash to car and get out of the city before the winds kick in.
Floralgirl I hope you sell out! That would be nice for you! Hope you have nice weather, but it's gonna be cold. They're saying 45° vice the 65° we're supposed to get today. Big difference.BW up, still 1 eagle there.
Oh, have fun at the zoo Mits!! Don't worry, I'm used to freezing my buns off this time of year. I don't mind standing out in the cold, just as long as the wind dies down. Have a good day, everyone. Off to work, loooong day today.
Good morning, Mits! Training day, huh? That should be so fun! What an awesome job you're going to have. And working with all those animals! Think I'd love that. Well, 99% of it...I'm sure you can figure out the 1% that wouldn't be so cool. Goodness knows, I scoop all my litter boxes first thing in the morning while the kids are eating breakfast! That's enough for me! But would love everything else about it.They'res an adult eagle in BW.
Good morning, my eagle buddies. I hope everybody has a wonderful day!!! :):):)
Later, Megan. Sell out tomorrow!!
Just a volunteer out on the trail,Suzanne, I will be working with the public, around the animals, not with them, although there are jobs where you can be a trainers' assistant, let me see how this year goes before I move on to other things.
Yeah, Mits, I know you're a volunteer, but you are at least near the animals. You can watch them when you want! In other words, you're a heck of a lot closer than most people! I think trainer's assistant would be kind of cool, but that would also depend on the trainer. Type of person, I mean. But you have time to look and watch the employees, as well as the public. Not sure I could deal with the public, my fuse is way to short! I have absolutely no patience!
Top o' the morning, to ya Sharon. Feel better!BW locked up again, dang!
Since I will be representing the zoo, got to keep emotions under control..might throw me to the lions, if I don't. Most of my volunteer experience has been with schools and hospitals, this will be a different challenge.
Tai keeps standing on Mei's back to get a better view..
Well, now that's the power of sending thought elsewhere. I'm working on an email to Lisa telling her the cam is down again, and bam, it's back up! Our lone eagle is still there.
Noticed the freeze frame for a long time at BW, then boom its back on.
Mits, I'm sure you will do fine. I learned many MANY years ago to bite my tongue! Ya even get used to the pain! (Oh, that's a sick statement!!)
EAGLE IN FLORIDA
Eagle in Florida!
With age comes wisdom, Suzanne, and hopefully the ability not to take things personal, which I'm still working on.
There you go, Mits. Great minds blogging alike again! :):):)
Well there was an eagle in FLA???
Good Morning all. Weather is an issue from Mid part of country, some where around the Quad Cites and East LOL.I have to shovel some to get my dogs out of the house, and then my car out of the driveway. Day before the Open House for all who made this facility possible. Has to come off so off to work I go. Be careful and watch out for those new drivers. "Oh guess that is mostly for Vicky and I" those of you out East Eyes to the skies, I hope you see our eagles BUT I also hope you are alert to the weather conditions. Hugs to all and especially to (((((((YOU))))) , you know who you are!
Eagle gone in Florida.
:):):):), AH THE QUEEN OF WAX, your eagle eyes are still sharp!!!!
That is right, Mits. You can't keep a good eagle eyed woman down! :):):)
Good Morning dear Friends, God Bless you all and especially those who need a touch from the Master's hand today. Mits it is wonderful how you volunteer. You really are special, just ask Suzanne and Mema Jo and me and Sharon. Floral Girl I pray you sell everything you have up for sale tomorrow. Back to exams and grading papers and all that stuff that gets in the way of the blog. Wouldn't it be nice to be PAID to blog all day. Mits I have had to eat so much crow over my tongue (you know the tongue is full of poison, so don't bite it too much) that it tastes like chicken now. Love to all of you. donna

Grabbing a bowl of cereal real quick now and hoping to see a plow go by on my street, not gonna happen, but once I get a couple of blocks it should get much much better. No school anywhere today so the kids are NOT out this morning!!!! :-)Its not volunteer although in the future I certainly will have what I do on the list of places I will Volunteer..... But for today .I have a major responsibility to be there...today and get it set to go tomorrow. Will BLOG tonight a little unless I get snowed in there, at least where I am working I can get snowed in and have food warmth and a bed to sleep in...its not all that bad once I get there.
Thanks NormaByrd, Traveling mercies for all. and TGIF stands for Today God Is First. donna
