HAPPY THANKSGIVING, TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, STEVEN. THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD, WAS JUST GOING TO BELIEVE IT WAS A NEW THREAD FOR THE WHOLE WEEK, GLAD WE HAVE A NEW ONE UP, SOME LIKE YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS GETTINON
EAGLE BACK IN FLORIDA, THIS TIME LOOKS LIKE SHE IS REPAIRING NEST.
Suz, that is great news about BW cam going up soon....LET THE EAGLE SEASON BEGIN.
Thank you Steven for the New Thread.May you and your family have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. Now maybe Megan can get in here.Oh my look at that eagles in Florida. Beak kissing and mating.
Uh oh, blogger cop got Steven! We can't have that!! Thanks for the new thread, Steve! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!! Have a wonderful day.Thanks for coming to get us, Mits!I copied this from last page, was typing and posted after you said new thread...Oh, Mits, didn't know there was a Nor'easter coming. Didn't hear the weather last night, and someone at work today said we're supposed to get heavy rain here starting at noon or so. Didn't know that either! That's REALLY gonna make the drive home a nightmare. Besides heavy HEAVY traffic (Turkey day travel day for lots and lots of people), will have heavy rain to contend with. Oh joy!
LOOK AT HER BENDING THAT STICK IN FLA.
Now more sticks to build up the nest. For I'm sure should be eggs. lol
Mits I got to see "handy panky" going on.
Good at least he is attempting to help....
Yes he is Mits but I think he has other thoughts on his mind.
Yes, Dana, he does.
Hey, Mits! Didn't you get wax on the last thread??? Think you did! Congrats.
I just told those eagles this morning that their nest looked flat. lol Guess they heard me. Most have taken offense building it higher (just kidding) ( :
Oh yeah, Suzanne, going to roll it up into a big ball, and push the door open gor Megan.
One flew off other still working on nest in Florida.
Only going to be 64° in Port St Lucie today...
We are suppose to hit a big 48 degrees today with rain tonight 30 degrees. Thanksgiving day maybe rain and 48 degrees.
The other eagle just landed in FLA.
This pair of eagles (they expect its the same pair) have been coming here since 1978 that's 18 yrs. plus maturity is about 5 yrs so they are 32 yrs old.
Just checked in on my sweet Buta Buta. New hay and she is sleeping. Mom is off somewhere.
Checked on Tai he is asleep up a tree very plain to see. Mei is asleep over a tree on the ground.
Maine nothing 1 eagle at BWred light at Kent in the darkNothing at Conn. nestFlorida eagles left sure will be back
BW seems to be stuck on same pic for last hour.
Maybe that is why Suzanne hasn't commented lately. She is trying to get the cam at BW unstuck.???
Everything at BW is moving except the eagle.
Think it may be unstuck???
Updat about the nor'easter coming up the coast and that is the reason BW may not update.....that lady Lisa is on the ball at BW....
He's moving, Mits. He's trying to hang on in that wind! But his tail was moving. Think it may not be refreshing now, though. Nope, just watched the counter change and he didn't move.There he goes! He's trying to hang on...
Don't have to call her to tell her cam is stuck.
Wow, she must have been reading over your shoulder, Mits!
Suzanne you still around here?
Yup. Had to do some stuff on my other computer. Hate it when that happens!
Wow I type it and look an bingo there you are.Geesh might be a good time to wish for something I want for Christmas. Just can't think of anything lol
You and Ed coming Saturday, Dana? Providing it doesn't rain...
Suzanne I know it is cold out and you would want something warm. Have you ever had the "frozen coffee's"?
I'm doing Christmas different this year. I'm adopting an endangered animal for everyone in the family in their name. That's their gift from me. (Well besides the stuff I already have.) They get to pick the animal they want, and they'll get an adoption certificate, picture, and stuffed toy of the animal. From WWF, World Wildlife Fund. I've belonged to them for years!
Wind gust of 50mph are expected in Ocean City today...Cambridge is about an hour and a half from there.
Suzanne like I said in email. I don't know what Ed's plans are for Saturday. He is a late sleeper. Not up yet.Still wondering about those "frozen coffee's"?
Cambridge wind gusts 35mph today. That's a great idea, Suzanne.
Dana as we speak I am drinking an International "Chai Latte" It's delicious! I'm drinking it in the travel mug I got from Paula at the open house...stays HOT for a long time!Not sure what the frozen coffees you're talking about are, but they sound good!
Hey Mits, have you ever tried the EggNog Chai whatever it is at Starbucks? I had one Saturday, man are they good. Had to get another one to take home yesterday. Getting too cold out for my frapps now! Got to drink hot stuff.Dana, didn't see anything about Ed's plans in your email!
Nest Update - 11/22/06: A Nor'easter storm is heading up the coast, and it might cause problems with the image updating.Message on BW as I just got on their site.Morning all!Yup, can't wait fow BW eagle site to come up, either!
Geesh, oops, eagle gone at BW.Anyway, last post gave me an error, so copied it but then tried to post again, and it posted twice. Gonna be my turn soon, looks like!
Eagle back in BW!!!
Good Morning Paula. Sounds like an enjoyable time with your son.
2 eagles at BW now
BOTH BACK!!! First one has a fish!
More hanky panky in FL? KEWL! Maybe she will lay 3 eggs!
Buta Buta is resting on Mom after a nice feeding.
Looks like one brought breakfast at BW
Nice close up at BW
Eagle is RIGHT in front of cam at BW
Did you see him just look at the cam? Awesome! Look at those feathers blowing!
Good Morning all. Hope your day goes well, and your travels wherever they take you goes safe.In an dout today mostly out.
That was definitely neat, Suz..looks like the rain has slowed up for a few minutes...
The close up the feathers looked like velvet.
Starting to get light at Kent
Didn't finish breakfast, they'll be leftovers for the Ewwwie sanitation engineer vacuum when he makes an appearance. That should make him happy! It's probably the first time he'll actually find something!One just left. Nope, both gone now.
Time for the Sanitation Engineers to show up at BW, eagles are gone!
LOL! We know the routine, don't we Suz!
Sky is starting to get pretty at Kent.This has been an enjoyable morning. Watching all the cams.DON'T FORGET EVERYONE MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE STARTS THURSDAY MORNING AT 9am EST. I always love watching it.
Yup, Paula, we sure do. I just sent everyone (well, if I have your email addr, that is), the eagle pics I took from BW this week. Most are from this morning. I also sent them to Lisa at BW. Hope you get them, there are a lot of attachments!Dana, I always enjoy watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Curl up on the couch, hot cuppa coffee, I'm good to go. (If I can stay awake through all of it.) But I'll be watching.
Well raindrops on the cam now, any more pics and they'll be fuzzy!!
Man that nest at Kent is getting taller and taller! Our Master Builder Eagles are quite fancy with the wood weaving!
Yes, it is Suzanne.

Nest decorating time at Kent!
I'm back. Wow, Chrissy got so excited about the wax she said it twice!Eagle back in Kent. (Yup, looked first.)Getting really rainy at BW. Just started raining here. Thought I'd get out ahead of it, but guess not.Got 3 animals adopted, one to sister, one to brother in law, and one to nephew and his family, they wanted a "family" animal.
Isn't that nest just amazing!! They surely have worked long and hard on that one!!!
yeah, wonder if Architectal Digest or House Beautiful is expected!!
Man, BW is getting soaked! Guess even the ewwie vacuum isn't coming for his leftovers...
I read the comments, but for people that only read a couple of them, there is an eagle at Kent!:):)
LOL Paula, but you're right. Just arrived back!
good grief, and left again!
Darn, missed the pic of her flying off....the manual page updates before the cam page...
Time for me to hit the road. Dreading it, pouring rain, and traffic is gonna be HEAVY! Just what I need, extra cars on the road and rain. Oh joy!!Everyone have a very Happy Thanksgiving! Stay safe and enjoy your holiday.I'll see some of you Saturday, either at Megan's stand or at the nest.Love ya all.Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly! (Hopefully, Sat!)
Good Afternoon - eagles, eagles every where In less then one year it is amazing how 'eagle educated' we have become! I know that yesterday I wished everyone of you a blessed Thanksgiving-but I'll say it again! Blessed Thanksgiving to AllBe safe in your travels.
Eagle back at Kent...not going to let that stick get the better of him!
Not much blogging I missed while I was gone for appt.
Tai and Mei are asleep insideAtlanta is doing something to camKent, Maine and Florida MT
BW still up but MT northeastern hitting it
Pete's Pond was on this morning and playing good. Now they are showing an untitled clip. Not up :(
Eagle at Kent 4:32 pm EST
I think it is the female large white tail feathers and very large beak. Not sure if she brought something in to eat or not. Waiting awhile to see. Yep I believe she did pulling on something.
Just flew off at Kent..didn't stay too long. Maybe went to a branch to eat.
That was neat just seen an eagle on the Florida cam. Flying through the blue sky. Sweet ! (:
Keep a close eagle-eye, Dana, they like to come in at sunset at FLA>
Ahh someone's been by. Good to see you. I did miss those eagles though and I do have the cams up. Got my mantle just about done. Feels kind of nice actually. Now I have atmosphere for Macy's Parade tomorrow.
Good Evening... well Atlanta Panda cam has changed to Earthlink instead of CNN and now they are saying this:Starting on Wednesday, November 22 live images of the cub will be accessible Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Daily updates about Lun Lun and her cub's progress will continue to be posted until further notice. Visit our video library for videos of mother, cub and dad – Yang Yang.That breaks my heart as i watch her constantly !!!!! Doug Hill weather is calling for sleet also in the weather forcast Mits... Well BBL
Wow, sure has been quiet...guess everyone is getting ready for Turkey Day!Guess I didn't miss anything either!
'Cept those eagles Dana just saw :)
All the air ports on the east coast are having delays... If your traveling or going out please be extra careful!!!! Suz prayers are with you on your way home as traffic is a nightmare down there. So whats up for saturday going to the nest if weather is better and megan? what time?
Nilla, when did he report sleet and for when???? They don't have any mention of it on his weatherbug.
Just watched the news and he said sleet also for washington area.. so i know we will get something way up here in WV...
Geesh between the weather report and the Panda cam report that not such good news. Everyone leave plenty of time to get wherever you are going. i think this year we will all worry several times over suzanne now and her commutes as the weather gets more difficult to deal with. You all just be careflu and be safe...You have a date with an eagle cam in just 2 weeks now!!!
I am watching the local news here and they showed alot of frozen precip down in Virginia looks like heading for Sharon's way.. So stay in Sharon be safe.
Glo i was watching earlier the beach cams here at Bethany and Rehobeth and Ocean City and the surf is way up and wind blowing so hard...
Partly Cloudy and 48° in Bluefield, West Virginia right now...was watching the beach cams also, Nilla.
Nilla where did you hear about sleet? Where is the sleet suppose to be at, what area?
14 Days & Counting
Sky turning pink in Florida
Waiting for the eagles in FLA.
Oh the Washington News weatherman Doug Hill Dana... He is one i trust for weather..lol Now Lien Lou at NBC25 is another story Dana..lol
14 DAYS AND COUNTING Paula thats 2 weeks.........336 hours..... and as for the minut total my brain doesnt function that high..LMAO
I hear sleet for Penna. and Pocanos
They had some snow flurries in Orlando Florida last night. Weather channel tv said.
I will have to travel all of about 1/10 of a mile to Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. We are having it at my sister's house. I have to work from 9 to 11 in the morning. Work today was pretty tough on me so I am hoping tomorrow is a little better.
Kitty Hawk, NC flooding in the streets.
Hope so too, Sharon.
Dana, you got wax.
Thanks Nilla for what area is the sleet?
Sharon you could make it exciting by putting on ski's for the 1/10 of a mile.
NO NO not me not wax it gets in my computer and messes it all up. Then I can't use the computer. Someone, anyone take it---take it please please say you'll take it!!
Could be problems for the balloons for the Macy Day parade if the wind is up for the large balloons.Yikes ...
2 eagles at kent
oops I mean FL LOL
Forgot which cam I had on top but its that Beak to beak stuff. They get along quite a lot more nicely than edith and archie it seems.
Got that right in Florida Glo. Both now on same limb, boy is that limb bouncing up and down.
Wasn't there a commerical once that said, "Florida is the place for lovers".
Glo they or one of them are still there. Just seen it fly to a higher limb.
LOL Yep They're at it again. getting quite an Eagle Education aren't we. We started with the egss last year, why we are way ahead of thast one this year at least with the FL pair.
Nilla what are you baking now?
Leesburg some snow and skyline drive and front royal sleet. Allentown Pa. light snow and freezing rain.
Sory just had a delightful phone call from Sharon .. Lord we two can yack yack like Ms Dana can..lol ducks!!! Dana i have not got anything baked yet ... Dawn called me before 11am (slept in and asked me to come in early at 2 pm) So i scrurried and got ready so tonight after i go home i will bake.... Oh my its raining hard here... Will be a long night and NO Buta Buta to watch !!! That really PO's me!!!
Oh Atlanta Panda cam is off line ... Ya know thats cruel we watch for months every day all day and night and they just pull it away from us!!! Who do we write im calling EARTHLINK!!!
EVERYONE CHECK YOUR EMAIL FOR MAIL I JUST SENT AROUND IN REFERENCE TO THE ATLANTA BUTA BUTA PANDA CUB CAM
Aww how very sad. That is one crummy deal. gr-r-r-r- !
Video update of Buta today has NO AUDIO.
I did write the Atlanta newspaper man that contacted me for the interview.I hope everyone will sign the petition I've sent around.
Just watched awonderful story about this animal place in Utah that is flying in pets that are in Iraq some wounded and hurt and getting homes for them here in the United States they ae being adopted... Did anyone watch Oprah today? She had Will Smith on who stars in this tear jerker of a real life story new movie coming out real soon.
Really wasn't sure where I was suppose to sign it,Dana???
Called "Pursuit Of Happiness" his son plays in it with him... take a box of tissues!!! Good DANA I HOPE HE GETS BACK TO YOU REAL SOON AFTER THE HOLIDAY...Ya know they could have let us know about this change.. I signed it think it went back to you
I thought it was going to the eagle momsters...Dana just sign my name when it comes back to you. I would be very surprised if they changed their minds,,I wrote to CNN, several times about a better cam and sound....no response.
Mits you just move down under the name there like I am (1) ------- my name just (2) -------put your name and state
Mits is your state Md?
And if i calculated correctly we have about 20,16000 minutes til the cam.... Correct me if i am wrong...lol
Eagles haven't been back for awhile in Kent.
Dana i should be number 2 did i do it right?
Yes, Dana, MD...just tried that when Nillas came thru, but it did not work.... I get e-mails to sign all the time and MOST of the time they always work, but not this time.
My heart is broken over not being able to watch my Buta Buta all the time but I reckon we will just have to accept it. At least we will get to watch her 7 hours a day, much better than none.
I see that we are back on the original viewing schedule as it was before LunLun gave birth to ButaBall. I sure was hoping that CNN would keep the site until she reached the 100 day mark & received her name. Dana, it will be interesting to see what your contact's reply will beNasty weather all around! Hoping it all clears by tomorrow.
You know whats cruel about it that we have watched her as she grew and now she is trying to walk and moving scooting around and getting teeth and finally making us smile with her gaining abilities they do this ....
Well I didn't get the email, but I am saddened and disappointed anyway :-(
http://www.ajc.com/news/mplayer/m/6077Worth Watching Copy & Paste the above - it is a much better newsclip of ButaBall's exam!!
Oh Jo send it to me please in e-mail for some reason cant open them here at work on these computors.
Sounds right Nilla. If I can some back and they aren't on the same list I'll combine them onto one petition.
Our Buta Buta is good - one of the viewers calls her Bling Bling! And the zoo must call her CubCake - I thought Nilla had said CupCake... Oops! There I go again - Oh, Glo! Don't forget about the Hearing Aid story
Glo she sent it thru Momsters you should get one mine took awhile also..
Nilla check your email for the video
CUPCAKE is what they call her in Atlanta...you are correct, Jo:):):).
Jo the lady down at the Zoo said they call her CupCake at the Atlanta Zoo, but according to what i been reading they just call her baby and nothing special.. She is "OUR BUTA BUTA"
Nilla - you have mail with the link
Oh, almost wax!
