2 eagles at Kent!

Suzanne said...

In the Army we call that 6 days and a wake-up. Forgot all about that till I read the single digit figure. (Used to be called a single digit midgit, probably not politically correct now, though.)

Eagle in BW, just landed.

Busy, Busy w/ sticks this morning at Kent.

Suz, did you notice the time on their cam is wrong. It should be 7 there now, not 8.

Suzanne said...

They got the cams fixed just in time!

Eagle gone at BW.

Eagle gone at BW

Suzanne said...

I noticed the time, but it's been on schedule since I turned it on this morning when I came in. I mean, 2 hours difference. Cams just came up, they've been down all day.

Anonymous said...

Looks like she is leaving at Kent...yuppers, gone.

Suzanne said...

In the tree getting a birds eye view of her nest. Wonder how deep that nest is...

Suzanne said...

Something just landed in BW, but I have no clue what it is..

Suzanne said...

A jeuvie eagle, maybe? Wish he would turn around!

Psst, hello....look at the camera!!

Suzanne said...

Na, too much white. Paula, are you seeing this? What is that?

Suzanne said...

Oh, it IS a jeuvie!!!

Suzanne said...

he musta heard me, looking directly at the cam now.

7 days till Momster's Christmas!!!

Suzanne said...

Hi Vicky!

Is anybody else up????

There is a jeuvenile bald eagle in BW!!! At least I think that's what it is...has the same face, but lots of white.

Anonymous said...

I see him Suz!

Anonymous said...

He might be molting, Suz

Anonymous said...

His beak doesn't appear to be all black...looks like some yellow in there.

Good Morning Eagleland

Yes I had caught up on the blog and then seen what Suzanne and Paula said. So straight to BW and boy does he ever have white on him.
I would have thought an owl because of the color without looking at the face. lol

Thank you ever so much Ms. Dana!

Anonymous said...

That's a nice pose

Anonymous said...

Well I do remember that Steve or someone said. That after they are as big as their parents. Then they loose feathers for other type of feathers to come in and they are then smaller than the parents.

I think we are getting a look at that.

We are experiencing something again that is awesome !

Anonymous said...

Dana, they molt a couple of times, can't remember if it's 3 times or not. MIght be 4 times.

Vicky where? What nest were you at gal?

mauley said...

Good Morning all, and I still havent had time to catch up with blog, but dear friends I am counting down the days as well to our Momster Christmas which is only 7 long days away. This last bout of the crude just about did me in, but thanks be to friends who prayed with clean hands and I am almost as good as new. Ending our semester here, and so busy with grades and finals. I was blessed to see the juvie at Kent. Thanks for the heads up. Hope to get back in the swing of blog after next week. I love you all. donna

I was at the Blackwater nest Dana!

Suzanne said...

Well, the jeuvie is gone. Didn't see him take off, was on the phone. Took lots of pics and sent them to Lisa and asked, here's my email and her response:


Lisa,

This guy is in the Osprey nest as we speak. First time I've seen this guy. It is a jeuvenile eagle?

Thanks, Suzanne

Yep, definitely an immature bald eagle. I'll have to check my book when I get home to see about what age he is based on his coloring.

Sooooo awesome!!

Anonymous said...

Glad Lisa got back to you so fast Suzanne.

I have to say that is my "first" to see a juvie with so much white.
What an experience....

Mauley glad you are better.

Suzanne said...

Yeah, Dana, she's very good! First time I've seen a jeuvie with that much white too. She'll let me know how old tomorrow, I guess. I'll post it on the blog. I'm glad so many got to see him!! Or her. So... if a jeuvie is hanging around, maybe he'll be back. Kewl!!

Suzanne said...

JEUVIE BACK IN BW!!!~

Suzanne said...

Oh I'm so excited!!! Are you guys watching this????

Anonymous said...

Juvie is back at BW!

Anonymous said...

After reading original post from Steven, I feel like the next 7 days will be an eternity! I am watching the jeuvie at BW. I guess his feet is a dead giveaway for his ID.I never realized they looked like that.
By the way,
Good Morning So much activity on here these am hours. Hang in there, Mauley- the kids are counting on you!
Good Luck Mits! Very anxious to hear about your adventure to the zoo.

Vicky are you at BW ????? It is back !!

Anonymous said...

I forget when is it 4 or 5 yrs old that their beaks turn yellow?

Anonymous said...

What do you all think Spunky, MsInBetween and BigBoy look like?

Suzanne said...

Don't know for sure, Dana, but I'm guessing they turn yellow about the same time as they get the white head and tail feathers. About 5 years of age. Oh this is soooooo cool!!!!!

Suzanne said...

Think they're probably still black, Dana. They're not a year old yet.

Anonymous said...

Vicky you are right; if I hadn't seen its feet. Also with others looking on and Lisa saying it is a Juvie eagle. I too would have thought it to be a hawk.

Anonymous said...

That is what I thought about their beaks also Suzanne ty.

Just love to know how old this guy is?

Anonymous said...

Juvie is still at BW...just chillin'

Suzanne said...

Well Dana, ask and you shall receive:

email just rec'd from Lisa:

Based on this online article:

http://tinyurl.com/ycb8x8

I think our immature visitor is 2-3 years old.

Anonymous said...

I am chill'n too can't seem to go to any other cam while he is there at BW. lol

I feel like this may be a "once" in a life time scene live for me.

Suzanne said...

Poof, just left. At least we know he's in the area, so hopefully, he'll come back!

Anonymous said...

Gone again...

Anonymous said...

Ok ty Suzanne now I'm crying that is what ours babies will look like at age 2-3 years old.

Lord we love Spunky, MsInBetween and BigBoy. Take good care of them please.

Suzanne said...

LOL, Dana I was doing the same thing. Didn't want to move while he was there. Then they came in to vacuum...they do it once a bloody year, for god's sake! And had to pick today!

Suzanne said...

Phew, be still my heart. That was exciting!

Anonymous said...

Yup Suz, that's what it sounds like

Anonymous said...

That was really exciting to see the jeuvie. Thanks Suzanne for contacting Lisa & WOW what a quick reply.. Now for the panda girl..Update for yesterday is up on the site. Most interesting part of it is that:
We are looking forward to the cub becoming more active and mobile and expect Lun Lun and her cub to start playing together by the time the cub is four months old.

If they get that picture of Buta Buta any smaller on that page. We won't be able to see her.

Suzanne said...

Ahhhh. Get to do another Tai with her little personality! Wonder if she will like to climb like he does. Can't wait to hear from Mits!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I hope this finds everybody doing well today. I am so anxious for December 6. NEST TIME!! There is no nest like the home nest!

Mauley, if you are still around, you have mail!

I missed the juvie.

Beautiful sunshine in Bluefield right now.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I could help with Buta's playing skills if they would just let me! :):):)

Anonymous said...

Vicky Vicky where did you go??

Suzanne said...

Time for me to go. If the jeuvie comes back, take pics and send them to Lisa! All have a great eagle day. Beautiful outside now. This must be the calm before the storm. Guess when it gets cold this time it will stay that way. Bummer.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Anonymous said...

Suzanne, we are suppose to have a thunderstorm on Friday! Can't outguess the weather.
I keep switching back & forth to BW just in case the juvie comes back.

Fantastic - Now cam has shot of both eagles in their tree....

I wish our cams could be like this!

Paula Sharon Dana are you there?

Anonymous said...

Showing both FL eagles in another tree I think...

Anonymous said...

Jo, Does your FL pic freeze up a lot when they are moving the cam around like that?

Anonymous said...

It froze - actually went off for a sec - then started right back up. Mits said whenever Lynda takes a picture, it does that.

Anonymous said...

Oh, my goodness- Cam has close up of both in the FL nest. I am just besides myself - I can't wait to see Liberty & Belle in the same pose.....

Wow Florida is beautiful !!

Look at those feathers moving with the breeze.
