Thanks Mits and Steven.
good morning fellow nest watchers!!!Yes, it is I, Bird Girl... rumours of my death have been exceedingly exaggerated! I had to go back to work, just part time, but as most of you know, the fibromyalgia doesn't allow me enough energy to do everything I need to do at home PLUS work. So, I've been pooped.I hope everyone is doing well, sorry about your breakdown Steve! I'll check in again as soon as I can :-)Delphia
Thanks for the new thread, Steven.Thanks for the heads up, Mits!How you feeling, Sharon? I hope you're on the road to recovery!Welcome back BirdGirl! We've missed you!
Your welcome, SUZANNE
Good morning my Eagle Friends.Unless things has changed today is the day Nilla goes to see that tree climber Tai.Wasn't on yesterday got pictures onto disk off old computer whew.
Beautiful dawn breaking in the west.
Blog is not being to nice to me this a.m.!!!
Another stray has returned! I've been gone for a while, now anxious to see Belle and Liberty again. Missed you guys. Life just gets in the way sometimes.
MITS & NILLA---I sent a message on the old thread---GO BACK & READ IT---I AM LATE!!!!!!!!!
Good morning Sandy! Yes, life DOES get in the way!
Thanks, Normabyrd. Good Morning, SANDY
Nest is MT at KENT, but sometimes they like to do an early visit....be on the lookout. Speaking of nests.....where is ours??????
WE WANT OUR CAM, WE WANT OUR CAM! ARE YOU CHANTING WITH ME GALS???
Vicky are you off from work?Suzanne sweetie when we first started watching Kent. I said something then about we'll see christmas lights there. (wink)
Morning, all!MT nests everywhere.Mits, you going to the zoo?
Yes, Paula if I get in shower and away from puter. Busy a.m. here. It shouldn't take me long to get there, only 5 miles, but never know about D.C. traffic, it usually sucks.
No Dana, I am NOT off of work, just being a bad employee -- but then again the "New" employee manual has NOT been delivered with the NEW restrictions!
Mits I just tried phoning Nilla to tell her to call me like we planned. Guess they are driving in and area her cell doesn't work. You see her there tell her to call. I've got the cam up and will tell them on here ok.
Well Vicky I guess if there is no handbook...well your not "naughty" but then again you are. I remember those "eyes at NCTC lol" kidding here.
Good Morning Dana, Mits, Vicky, sister Sharon,Paula, Suzanne, Norma Byrd, and Sandy,lurkers, and anybody I missed.Mauley still very much under the weather. Will teach my noon class and go home again. You out there in Eagle Land remember me in your prayers. Sharon, you don't suppose I caught this from you??? LOL Will try to catch up tomorrow if I make it though today and tonight. love donna
Mauley When I caught up on the blogs I seen where you was sick. Sure hope you get to feeling better soon.Sharon I hope those meds take effect soon for you also.No offense please but when I'm in here I'm going to wear a "mask" NO NOT A HALLOWEEN MASK lol. You a surgical one...there must be something going around in cyberland.
Hey i am just leaving Carrie just got here. So Mits will be running late ok... C ya at the zooooooooooo Mits
Morning everybody I haven't spoken to. Mauley, I sure hope you feel better fast. You're in my prayers!Dana, I don't remember the comment you made earlier (Like WAYYY earlier) about the Christmas lights, sorry. But they will be nice to see if they put them up.Mits, Dana, Nilla was on earlier. She might have left for the zoo. She said she has her Spunky sweatshirt and jeans on. So Mits, that's what she's wearing. I hope you guys meet, that will be so neat! You'll have such a good time. I hope Tai is his usual rambunctious self while you're there! Take lots of pics, if you can.
Nilla and Mits, have fun!!!
Nilla just left message on the blog Mits that they are running late. Will probably be about 1 pm when they get to ZOO Mits. I spoke to Nilla just now. She is going to call me; hope cell works from their. Mits so you don't have to leave as early as you thought. If anyone has Mits phone number call and tell her this.
Suzanne you are RIGHT is was a longggggggg time ago that I said about the Christmas lights. Glad you said something again. For the lurkers and new bloggers (but not new to the site).It should be pretty (:
Yeah, Dana, you know me. Had that ol' CRS for a lonnnnnggggg time. And if anything happened like 48 hours or longer ago, forget it. Cause I sure have. Memory ain't what she used to be. (Not that it was ever much to START with!)
Thanks, saw the message from Nilla. Too bad she does not have a tracking device on her, like UPS and FED-EX!!!
I will watch the DC news later to see if there were any incidents at the panda exhibit at the zoo. Remember, you may not feed or hold the pandas,LOL
Oh, that's a good idea Floralgirl. We may see a blerb on 2 women trying to get in to steal Tai to take him for a treat! LOL Wouldn't that be a hoot. I sure hope he does his usual acting and climbing while they're there and they get to watch him! Hope they get lots of pics for the momsters site!
LOL!!!!!!FLORALGIRL you just never know....THELMA AND LOUISE TOGETHER.....I'll drag her over to Montgomery County, they might not through the book at us like in D.C.
Man, MT nests everywhere. Think all the eagles must have gone to DC too, to meet the momsters that are gonna be there!
Yes Floralgirl, check the news for us IL gals! With Nilla on board, that zoo will have a "situation" on their hands!
Lot of action here this morning. I checked emails, comments and cams -- I think I'll call it Panda Day & just pray that Tai is cooperative for our gals.
DC cams : What in the world are they focusing on inside? Wierd looking. Not going to help us see anyone.
DC Cams must have heard me and headed outside quickly..
Way to go, MemaJo. Now if they pull that when Nilla and Mits get there, yell at them again. Make them put the crowd on the cams! Tell 'em we want to see Nilla's sign!
It is going to be so cool if we do see Nilla & Mits on the cam. I sure will be looking!
Can you snap pics from the cam?
I think the answer is 'No' about pics from the Panda Cam. Glo said she would have FRAPS up - just in case.
Oh, well that's something. Wasn't sure since I can't watch. Hope she can Frap them!
I need to leave for just a moment or two.... Dana are you there watching the DC cam.. So afraid we will miss seeing them - Of course we all know what the chances are of the camera aiming at the crowd... BooHooAt least we'll get a good report when the gals return.
Ok I need some help here. Just home from grocery. I have turned on National Zoo and see a sleeping Panda in the tree. Do you think I am on the right cam? And is the expected time like 1 pm your time now? HELP LOL
Headin over to the zoo in about 10 mins, been busy on the phone all morning.
Oh, Glo, I wish I could help you, but I can't watch the cams!!Dana, where are U??? Glo needs help!
Mits, can you help Glo before you go?
Well if anyone can get the cam person to focus in on her in her hot pink yelling momsters it would be Nilla. I have High Hopes lOL
Well I do think it is about 1 pm their time now that I need to pay close attention. I don't hear anysound this morning from the cam which concerns me some :-(
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille LOL
Glo it will be one our time....TTUL> I'm the one in hot pink, Nilla is supposed to be wearing her Spunky sweatshirt????
Glo Don't look for Hot Pink - Look for an Eagle Swetshirt!ok-the cams.... Cam2: I think this is TianTianCam1: I think this is the one you want.... I can't be certain if it is Tai or Mei sitting there eating the bamboo... I haven't seen them together this morning.
Yup, Mits if you see a redhead with a white sweatshirt, with a fledgling soaring, (Spunky, of course), that's Nilla. It's one of Glo's sweatshirts, I have one like it!have fun, you gals!
Whoops! I didn't know Mits had Hot Pink lol
OK cam 1 and a Spunky shirt lOL. I will be watching and we are thinking like 1 pm or so your time right LOL
Time for me to hit the road. Hope you guys get to see our momsters at the zoo! That would be just so cool! Wish I could watch them!Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly! Or eyes on the cams, see the momster ma'ams.
LOL I could have sworn I red something about hot pink or something last night LOL Maybe in my dreams LOL
Well, I sure didn't pick an exciting time to leave - now did I. My son is coming by to pick me up for lunch in a few minutes..... I'll be gone about 2 hours. I think I am going to miss it all! Darn It! Oh where is our roving reporter Dana We really need you here when you get the phone call!!! Keep us posted.
I have no sound today ...which is strange for the nNational Zoo. Do you have sound?
Just saw a good shot of people (NO RED HAIR-NILLA OR HOT PINK SHIRT-MITS)Maybe that camera person is doing people today.... Glo You did read last night a comment from Nilla about wearing her Hot Pink shirt - she informed us this am it would be a Spunky shirt instead. You're not losing it.. lol
I don't have any sound coming thru now.
LOL Oh good. Ok tracking for spunky shirt and red hair now LOL
Scratching Time LOL
Have Mits and nilla ever met....didn't sound like it from Last nights converstion. Well I know what they both look like LOL I can spot them MAYBE LOL
I gave MITS Nill'a cell phone # so they should be able to find each other.Mits told Nilla that she knows what she looks like since she has seen her pic on Momsters.
Glo in case you didn't read back enough comments - I am just about ready to leave for lunch with my son. Dana should be coming on around 1:00 as Nilla promised to call her (If the cell phone reaches out of DC). Good luck in your sightings!!
What fun...not the Sycamore tree BUT I kind of think a Spunky shirt and Tai Shan kind of fits the picture pretty well.
OK have a good lunch thanks i'll do my best
Well for the last 10 min I have been watching a Panda Bear sleep and I think maybe the cam person has gone to sleep too. You would never know i am watching a live video right now that's for sure LOL
I've been readin the comments...no call yet and my cams keep doing an "over fill" knocking me off dang it.
Cam 2 shows someone asleep on a tree laying on the group no leaves.Cam 1 shows someone on the rocks just lifted its head to look around. Now moving OOpps I think Tao the way he is rolling around. lol
OK Dana when they do call...let them know 2 of us are watching...have them briefly describe what the panda is doing that they are watching etc. At least hopefully we can get the right cam film of what they saw live together . One panda cam now has Panda by rocks etc. The other has Panda on Treee limb. I think the tree limb one is tai but i'm NOT sure.
well we were doing the same thing as we typed lOL
I will have them or if Mits calls someone explain what they are seeing so we know which cam. ok
When I get ready to FRAP i will have to close one of them or I won't get what we want . That's why I kind of need to know which one they seem to be watching nearby I guess.
OK We have a plan...best we can do for now
My cell phone reaches from Baltimore Johns Hopkins I know that. What I don't know is will they let you in the zoo with a cell phone? Don't know the answer to that.
LOL Well we will be finidng out. I would think they let you in with the Cell Phone though (shrug)
Yes they will just spoke to the zoo.
LOL Gonna have to hold down some of the action in here LOL @ sleeping Pandas and a camera person that's it so far
Did you tell them to be watching out for these 2 LOL
Well I am trying to get some action on this end for them but not happening yet..people out to lunch.
Since the Pandas are sleeping anyway it sure would be nice if they would pan around and catch some of the people.
Trying to set something up. We'll let you know.
mycam 1 shows panda playing inside for awhile now swithced back
Yes They are together right now. Took some snaps and short video so they can both have this much even if we don't get them on here. Still High hopes though!!!
what does cam 2 show???
Turned it off so i could capture some of them together whether or not we see Mits and nilla
no it wasn't inside Tai is playing with mom on the concrete just outside. Mei is laying down and he is all over her.What is happening on cam 2?
If they are there now they are watching bOTH of them together is my thought.
Yep That is what I have decided to film. They will have something from their visit of what they saw together I hope!
IMMEDIATE PRAYER JUST PHONED NILLA AND THEY ARE WALKING FROM THE METRO STATIONED "SHE IS OUT OF BREATH" PRAY FOR HER PLEASE NOW !!!
Ok Prayers for Nilla. Hoping all turns into a ownderful memory and experience for everyone.
Tai is nursing on cam 1
So the one asleep on the rocks when they show it must be Dad.
had she already met up with Mits or are those two meeting by the Pandas, do you know?
No Glo she wouldn't have met up with Mits yet. She was just walking from the Metro station. Very Very out of breath. I got hear her and she said she was. I don't know where they are meeting up at but if it is at the Pandas. Nilla will still have a ways to walk. Poor gal...needs to have a wheelchair ride for things excursions.
cam 1 show Tai from the front nursing cam 2 shows him from the back of Mei nursing.
Ok Well hopefully she is taking her time. its not a race to get there. Think Mema Jo said she had given Mits nillas number so they can communicate there too.
Yes that is what Mema Jo said on here. So Mits and Nilla can cell phone each other.Hope the Pandas aren't too far from the entrance.
I have Never ever been there. I imagine it is a huge place!!!
Have you got sound I don't on either cam :(
No sound darn...we'll never hear them yell Momster
I have when daughter was in grade school it is huge.If Nilla and Mits yell anything we won't hear it darn
Do you suppose its just some switch at the Zoo that they haven't turned on, there is usually sound there
Nilla and Mits are watching them now. Nilla is loving it. Said, "He is biting her toes."When they go to a place where they can be seen by the cam. Mits will call me and the guy I have a number for will have them pan to them for a second.
OK Cool . I am filming away lots of fun memories for them Ihope lOL
I'm telling Tai go to Nilla and Mits
Tai is climbing a branch onto a tree that is laying on the ground but he wants to be higher. Let Mits and Nilla see you Tai.
He is laying on his back scrathing on the tree limb and people are waling by and watchng him. Don't see pink sweatsuit nor white sweatshirt yet. 1:58 pm
Nilla, Mits go to Tai lol
nope me either LOL
Tell them to go over where Tei is now, you can people on the cam
LOL: there's a thought
Oh I wish Nill and Mits were right there behind him they and him would be in the picture.
would be perfect wonder how far away they are
Cool, see Nilla waving!
I might see them
Hi Mits, Hi Nilla!
yep its them
Discovery channel is ahead of zoo cams
Ok was that ever fun LOL
bye Nilla bye mits
They headed back the other way now
No, they're back, can see them again.
nope think thry are back for more maybe lOL
Dana did they know we could see them waving at us?
They are watching Tai climb the tree now, just moved to the left.
Mits shows up really good in that Hot pink
Glo are you getting this on fraps Nilla and Mits are right there by the tree he is climbing.
Yes dana I 've been typing and filmiong like crazy!!! They have lots of memories all frapped up LOL
It is funny there must be like a 2 second delay. I am having Mits and NIlla moving back and forth so I see them in the cam I am watching so you can get it. Nilla said we are right here by the tree. I said no it isn't showing you then seconds later it did. Poor gal I'll have her running back and forth ever which way. Don't shoot me Nilla please no wet noodle Mits.I'm trying hard here ...2:14pm
Pretty amazing the way Tai is lying on that small branch.
Tell them we got lots of stills and some video of them
Tai is all the way into and just leaded back in that willow branch. Oh my how those thin branches don't break..eekss. 2:15pm
Looks like he is up the tree for awhile...
She said she will call me if any thing more happens. They are having and exciting time watching the "tree climber".
Glo we couldn't see Nilla and Mits faces too well with the limbs in the way. The pink sweatsuit was great Mits it helped to locate you two and then I caught sight of Nilla's white sweatshirt. So I told them to wave so some of that should be on the fraps.
What an absolute thrill for bOTH of thme. Fun Fun
Its all on FRAPS. well ya know Lots and lots. i spotted them and started frapping long before I could get it typed in to here
Just as Pauls said See Nilla waving I am sure I was frapping and typing I think i see them. We got that very first shot as we all saw them together...it was cool.
Everyone cam 1 is showing the Dad sleeping on the rocks it's not Mei.Cam 2 is showing Tai in a tree. That is what Nilla and Mits are watching.
OK well FRAPS files are huge and I have lots. I am going to go unpack my groceries now and then come back and take a look. We'll have some fun stuff to share later tonight for everyone.
Good going there Glo. (:
OK Now lets edn them to the Tree tomorrow afternoon and we'll do it all again LOL.
OH more wax too LOL...
Tai you climber lower now go lower and go find Mits and Nilla. Look Tai "pink hot pink" go get it Tai. Climb down further boy and find Nilla in the white sweatshirt and dark pants. Tai she has cute "red" hair you know you like pink and red. lol
Glo that would have to be "inside NCTC to catch the tree pics and they could take a video recorder with them lol. Then we could see Mits, Nilla, the eagles, the nest and whomever is there at NCTC to arrest them lol.
Right Dana sounds like a plani the making.
2:29 Tai is awful still in that tree. Wonder if he is sleeping now?
He just moved his head around toward the cam.
Well I sure am glad Nilla sounded better. The excitement of seeing Tai nursing from Mei. It must have given her an extra boost. Probably wasn't walking as fast. Standing there watching.Tai is trying to climb high 2:35 our time time on cam 14:38:11 looks like he is alittle higher. Maybe not
Looking pretty dark at the Zoo for quite some time, kind of hoping they have umbrellas wtih them or maybe its just a high shade area now.
Glo you still here?
Glo did you see people at the glass door looing out at the panda by those doors? Was Mits or Nilla there?
3:10 pm cam 15:13:11 They are showing on cam 2 the tree but I dont see Tai in it??? Maybe he is..don't know.
Cam 1 I think is showing Mei walking around.I wish they would have the name of the Panda on there. Since sometimes they show Dad.
What a commentary & can't wait to see the show. Just returned & rushed over to PC to get a great update on the Zoo Visit of the Momster Gals! Great work Dana & Glo & Paula - your comments were great.
I be that is Tai on cam 1 all this time up in the tree. He was asleep. That rascal! It's 3:19pm cam time 15:21:06Doesn't look like he is excited at this moment to come down. Maybe he will before dark.
Tai is still up in the tree on Cam 2Tian Tian is walking around on Cam 1
I was checking out what we've got. I think its gonna be fun to show our gals and their visit to the zoo. Next project Filmloop and You tube movie...TTYL
Oh boy Glo that sounds great. (:Sorry welcome back Mema Jo. I also wanted to say I am very happy for the whole family and your grandson.(hope I got that right grandson)I am very thankful for the service men and women that are serving for our country ty Patrick.
Back to the EaglesKent eagle in nest
Kent Eagle did not stay long...
But of course - Came right back!!!
UPDATE ON PANDA ADVENTURE OF NILLA AND TAI, forgot to ask if Mits is till there.3:50pm EST Nilla just called and said they are standing right behind the tree that Tai is up in. That Brenda was just out there with an apple on a stick trying to get Tai down.Nilla and them are going inside soon at the Pandas. She might call is cell works inside.
Thanks, Dana, for the update. He looks as though he is quite happy up in that tree.
Panda Cam 2 is the one you all should be watching.
Now on cam 2 is that Mei inside or Dad?
That was funny Mema Jo I had just switched then you wrote that while I had. lol
Dana, Is she only going to see the Pandas? (LOL, probably a stupid question, but had to ask!)
Paula I don't know.What I do know is I am getting myself all mixed up on the cams. lolcam 2 Tai up the treecam 1 Mei or Dad eating bamboo inside "no Mits I didn't say bamboon"
Dana: Under each cam is the suggestion to try the other cam.. Tai is in the tree on Cam 2 & below the picture is the suggestion to turn on Cam 1 if you can't find him. It can be confusing to know which cam you have up. Took me a while to figure it out. Not sure but it is probably Mei who went inside on Cam 1.
Ok Think I have a video uploading lOL. Its like 4 min long so this could take a while LOL. Think I'll go "Loopy" now
MemaJo they were showing alot of Dad on cam 1 today. Sometimes I know it's written there but get myself turned around lol.Are we sure that is Mei and not Dad on cam 1?
Ok Mits or Nilla choose straws "the shortest straw" goes up the tree after Tai. Look one of us would gladly do it Glo, Mema Jo, Paula, me or any Momster or Dadster. Why aren't we? Well you see you two or just one of you left are down there right now. So hussle up that tree ! (: remember we are watching.
I have the cam up but have to go to the kitchen to start Eds dinner.Keep me up-to-date in the blog if and how he comes down. I'll check back as I'm fixing dinner.
Getting dark already in Maine at 4:20 est...cams have been MT all day, I have been checking...tho Jo saw an eagle at Kent, quick in and out...
Hi Paula For some reason I think Nilla is only interested in seeing one certain panda at the DC zoo. lol
OK video is posted on the For the Love of eagles Blog.http://fortheloveofeagles.blogspot.com/Will work on the Filmloop AFTER tea LOL
Here I go to For the Love of Eagles......Be back
4:42pm EST Tai is still up the tree I see. Must serve dinner. Keep me informed when he comes down. Also If you see Nilla inside.
2 Momsters & a Panda BearTerrific viewing! Great job Glo!The momster gals really did a good job of waving on que! Tai put on a good show also.
OK Film Loop is up now too. I think I will ask them to send Captions for the photos later...That should be pretty darn fun too knowing those two LOL
Glo Put out an email on Momsters about the site and the video. Now I will go back over & see the film loop.
5:13pm Tai is still up in the tree.. Almost dark... He is awake...
OK Mema Jo I'm on it. writing it up now lOL
Well thanks for keeping me on here up-to-date on the little "climber". Yep see he is still there.Would have been nice though if the rascal would have come down. So Nilla and Mits could see more of him wrestling with Mei. Then his antics inside.Both I am sure they both had a wonderful time.
LOL Mema Jo Well by the time I got my "article" written and posted, I see that you had written up one and it is already there. I don't know how to take mine off, bUT between what you wrote and what i wrote, i think it makes a pretty cute story of an awfully fun time LOL.
Glo lol That's what I get for not using a pronoun in my sentence. I reread my comments & it seems to be telling you to post an email! Anyway,2 is better then 1 sometimes! They are putting the flashlight on Tai in the tree.
LOL yep I couldn't tell either. Went to Momsters, didn't see anything so came back and told you I would get onit. I did and you did and now they have the Whole Story for sure !!!
It is so good to see Mits and Nilla right there at Tai!! I am cuddling a beautiful stuffed Tai even as we speak!
OK Tonight is finish off a newsletter night for me. Won't be blogging too much for a while now. Should be in your mailboxes in the morning. If this is your first subscription check junk and Spam folder as Cafe Press sends it out so your email MIGHT think you don't want it, but of course you do!!! BLOG later, i want to get it done so I can be in here when Thelma and Louise arrive tonight hopefully!
