Good Morning, Eagleland ! Sounds like Liberty & Belle are getting ready for their debut. Thanks for the info, Steve. Us eagle-sighting-starved-momsters will take anything we can get!
Oh, and 7 days & counting !
Oh, thanks Steve for the info! Can't wait to see them again!! Thanks for the new thread too.Thanks for letting us know, Paula. And 7 days! Can't wait.Oh, good morning!
2 eagles at Kent!
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.
They got the cams fixed just in time!Eagle gone at BW.
She is laying down testing her nest bowl again...gotta get it just right!
Eagle gone at BW
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.
Looks like she is leaving at Kent...yuppers, gone.
In the tree getting a birds eye view of her nest. Wonder how deep that nest is...
Something just landed in BW, but I have no clue what it is..
A jeuvie eagle, maybe? Wish he would turn around!Psst, hello....look at the camera!!
Na, too much white. Paula, are you seeing this? What is that?
Oh, it IS a jeuvie!!!
he musta heard me, looking directly at the cam now.
7 days till Momster's Christmas!!!
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.
I see him Suz!
He might be molting, Suz
His beak doesn't appear to be all black...looks like some yellow in there.
Ok, what's the url for the Blackwater Site???
http://www.friendsofblackwater.org/camhtm.htmlVicky all on one line
Isn't he cute!
Good Morning EaglelandYes 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!
That's a nice pose
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 !
Dana, they molt a couple of times, can't remember if it's 3 times or not. MIght be 4 times.
Juvie all gone!
That was kewl!
your welcom Vicky did you get to see him?
Wonder how old he was?
Eagle in FL!!!!!
eagle in Kent real close
not kent florida
Beautiful closeup of FL eagle in nest...waiting for sticks?
Wow what a close up shot.. I think they got the nest deep enough now.The way the beak is I think it is the female.
Getting sea sick watching FL cam!
Vicky florida is:http://www.audubonofflorida.org/friendsoftheeagle/cam.html
She just flew out she'll be back. They are moving cam in and out.
Off he/she went - readjusting cam now...
I think that was a hawk!
Vicky where? What nest were you at gal?
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!
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, SuzanneYep, 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!!
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.
Dana, you have mail!
I love windows XP I have 6 cams up whipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeJust yell and I can go there hee hee
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!!
JEUVIE BACK IN BW!!!~
Oh I'm so excited!!! Are you guys watching this????
Juvie is back at BW!
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 !!
I forget when is it 4 or 5 yrs old that their beaks turn yellow?
What do you all think Spunky, MsInBetween and BigBoy look like?
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!!!!!
Think they're probably still black, Dana. They're not a year old yet.
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.
That is what I thought about their beaks also Suzanne ty.Just love to know how old this guy is?
Juvie is still at BW...just chillin'
Well Dana, ask and you shall receive:email just rec'd from Lisa:Based on this online article:http://tinyurl.com/ycb8x8I think our immature visitor is 2-3 years old.
I am chill'n too can't seem to go to any other cam while he is there at BW. lolI feel like this may be a "once" in a life time scene live for me.
Poof, just left. At least we know he's in the area, so hopefully, he'll come back!
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.
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!
Phew, be still my heart. That was exciting!
Yup Suz, that's what it sounds like
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.
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!
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.
I could help with Buta's playing skills if they would just let me! :):):)
Vicky Vicky where did you go??
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!
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.
Lynda in FL has excellent shot of eagle in tree eating I think. Lot of movement with cam... Hope it isn't that windy but I think it is....This is so cool................WOW
HOPE ALL OF YOU ARE WATCHING THE FLORIDA EAGLE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> and not getting too dizzy...
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?
Showing both FL eagles in another tree I think...
Jo, Does your FL pic freeze up a lot when they are moving the cam around like that?
It froze - actually went off for a sec - then started right back up. Mits said whenever Lynda takes a picture, it does that.
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.
Dana & Paula I am so glad you are seeing this
BBLDon't know where Vicky went to
