I seem to always come in the door when the new thread is there. Just came home from a meeting...Need to go over to see what I misses during the last 2 hours.
Thanks Steve.

Mits said...

You haven't missed much, Jo.

Nope! I really didn't! Thanks.

Good afternoon. I am watching Buta covered with straw, Belle (or Liberty) froze in time in our nest (ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL - OUR NEST!) and that beautiful eagle in Florida. God is sooo good!

Steven said...

Live feed is up.

Mits said...

Eagle flew out and back in FLA.

Nilla said...

I have just sent a e-mail to our local news paper in Hagerstown , Md about the cam being on To: bulletins@herald-mail.com
Hello, Just a note to say the Bald Eagle nest in Shepherdstown, WV is up and running live 24/7 now. The 2 adult eagles named Liberty & Belle have been in the nest building and getting it ready for the season. Last year they sucessfully raised 3 eaglets we named Big Boy 1st born....Ms InBetween 2nd born and Lil Spunky the last born and they all grew and fledged, which is rare as usually the smallest doesnt survive. This is beautiful and new home page of NCTC which includes a blog link of which we have watched last season and became friends n family. Hope you enjoy as much as we have....http://www.fws.gov/nctc/cam/ Thank You, The Eagle Momsters of NCTC , Nilla Attached is 2 pictures i took yesterday of both Liberty & Belle in the nest.

Nilla said...

Mits said...

I'm not getting live-feed either:(:(:(. Nilla, still cam will not be working til tomorrow, I think that is what Steven said....relax we have the whole season ahead of us, don't want you blowing a gasket...lower that BP.

Anonymous said...

Well that was an exciting few minutes. Company had just left and I was about to take a nap when I saw New Thread and Steve's comment about the live cam running even though still 30 sec refresh was stuck. Got there in time to enjoy them a few quick secs. Hit Fraps but it didn't record it for me :-(.

I need a nap for tonight and I also want to watch for either cam now. Oh my what to do!!!

nilla settle down, neither cam is working at the moment but they BOTH will be...its just a few glitches still getting worked through

Nilla said...

Ok someone please send me the real player free d/l page.. i uninstalled mine thinking i needed to upgrade or something and put it in google and cant find the free d/l Ohhhhh look at the news really snowing up near Cumberland and Savage mt on rt68 going towards Morgantown

Mits said...

Nilla, thought I had sent it to you??????

Steven said...

Yup, live feed is back down. I expect we'll have a lot of these ups and downs for a bit yet. Our folks working on this are also supporting 200 staff people and their day to day computer needs...

Mits said...

Thanks, for the update, Steven

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Check out the Jeffersoncam and you can see what a mess Bluefield is right now.

Anonymous said...

Steve, this bunch of momsters/bloggers do know how to show our patience..We're behind you 100%.
I was hoping that at the end of last season when you mentioned that a new staff person for the cam operations was coming on that he/she was ours alone. I know, I was dreaming.
We'll "get r done" and be up & running very soon .. Yesterday & today just shows you how spoiled we are about having our Liberty & Belle eagle fix!
Just keep us updated as you have been doing.

OH MY SHARON !!! SNOW SNOW SNOW
Looks pretty since I am not there....
You going out this evening? Be careful.

Mits said...

Yikes....look at that snow in Bluefield WVA. Might have to change the name to Whitefield???

Mits said...

Good lord its a traffic jam in Bluefield.

Anonymous said...

If you go back to the main blog page, under links you will find "Video Feed Info". That will lead you to where you need to go.

Anonymous said...

Nilla & Dana you have email with the links.

Gotta go look at Buta Buta's video.
Thanks Nilla...I read the cub updates this morning & Mits said she probably had her exam today - seems to be every Thursday. I want to see also if AJC.com has a video-their's are usually longer then Atlanta's...

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Thanks for the heads up on Buta Buta Nilla. That was so precious! I so love that little girl!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

AJC's video is always much better, longer and narrated compared to Zoo Atlanta's.

Mits said...

Oh, now I see where it is...DANA, JO AND NILLA you have mail...SHARON,my address for Bluefield is a little different from yours, its the one I have had in my favorites for a long time.

Nilla said...

I know Sharon we need to figure out away to get our hands on her...lol did you see her little tongue and teeth?? Adorable i checked on the bad boy and he is asleep up in the corner Mei is asleep stretched out on the floor ...Going to check the mail BRB

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Mits, there is one with a bigger screen and one with a smaller screen.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

WAX!

Mits said...

I remember that Sharon, one day mine just automatically changed to the big cam....look at that snow blow........

I also was noticing her little tongue!

ROFLMAO!!

I was out of the office this afternoon when Steve put up the new thread and said the "live feed is up". He was like "Hello, the live feed is up".....and everyone was like "no, my cam is still stuck" and he is like "Hello, the live feed is up"....go back and re-read it all....


S000, did everyone find the link ok for the live feed on the blog page? Nilla, there is also a download there for real player...

Nilla said...

http://www.picture.com/contest/enter.asp?Suite=3671-318352 Ok i found this contest in a local news paper for pictures and a light bulb went on inside my head ... WE CAN send a good picture of the eagles and maybe win a 500.00 cash prize.. Who knows stranger things have happened and they are beautiful and all our pictures are ... Whacha think am i nuts??? Oh by the way the contest is pput on by The Smithsionian..

Nilla said...

Yeah Paula i finally got real player d/l thanks.... Getting bak to the contest there is no entry fee its free heck and the money can go to the camera because of course we would win....

Nilla said...

I am setting here laughing because when Thelma reads that message she is thinking yeah Louise the lights on but nobodies home... lol

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Yes Mits and the wind is whipping. It is just bitter here. At the moment I have only one of my dogs on the bed but this is probably going to be a "4-Dog Night"! Mattie is not staying with me tonight so I will just have to hug up to my dogs to stay warm. Andrew is stuck at his friends house because the roads are so icy.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I think the contest is a wonderful idea, Nilla!

Anonymous said...

Go for the contest, Nilla.

Anonymous said...

Good luck picking one of the photos, Nilla. Like you said - they're all
good. Is it limiting the subject matter any?

Anonymous said...

BTW, I posted 2 pictures on my blog today, it shows the nest back in July and now...it is really neat, you can see a BIG difference in the nest.

http://eagletmomsters.blogspot.com/

Nilla said...

The contest subject matter is Americana..... The Natural World... meaning animals and that caught my attention... and afew others. You do not need to be aprofessional photographer to send it is open to amateur pics... The winning photo's will be published in Smithsionian Magazine and the web site in 2007... So snap all those pictures of Liberty N Belle and we just might bring home the M-O-N-E-Y

Nilla said...

Think about any of the last years pictures and maybe we have one that i can send... This picture has to be the best of our eagles..

eagle-eyed sharon said...

My personal favorite is the one where all three little gray babies were looking up at Belle (who was at about 12 o'clock) and she was feeding them. I have always thought that was the sweetest, they were so trusting of their Mommy and Daddy.

Nilla said...

Ok so lets put our heads together and pick what we think is the best and also wait afew days for when the new cam comes up and maybe get a great picture of Liberty & Belle in the nest.. not to say they arent all great to us.

Is it still snowing, Sharon?

That's a thought Nilla. Maybe a picture to enter from this season.

Paula has anything come of putting the eaglet merchandice in stores, nctc shop or anywhere?

Nilla said...

It has come to my attention about the Christmas Dinner planned for Dec16th at 6pm at the Clarion is not a very good time for many who would like to attend. Many do not like to drive at night myself included, so can we make it a afternoon lunch instead, so many who are traveling a distanse dont need to travel late at night? And this being the Christmas season the Clarion is a very busy place for dinner and reservations maybe required but for lunch i would not think so.. Just some thoughts to make it convenient for everyone..Maybe Steven could attend the lunch?

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Paula, I just looked outside and it does not appear to be snowing. It is 15° and windchill is supposed to be -5 to -15° tonight. I am so grateful for a warm home!

Nilla said...

Sharon have you came up with aplan as to how we are going to get our hands on Buta Buta and bring her home??? I am laughing looking at the panda Belle got me 1st time i was in hospitol Buta is bigger than this one now.

Anonymous said...

No, Dana, I haven't had any luck yet. Steve was checking on the NCTC shop, but I guess it's either a "no" or he still hasn't received an answer. Sandra has checked several shops in Shepherdstown, but no luck yet. I am going to try several others.


Nilla,
Send an email through the momsters group and post a new time that people wish to attend! Also, put the time that everyone wants on here also. Or just send it off the email I sent earlier....

Nilla said...

Oh we need to send prayers as i heard on the news a tornado hit over in UK outside of London i hope our girls are ok... very strange weather lots of damage

Anonymous said...

Nilla,
A thought on lunch at the Clarion....you may want to find out what menu they are serving at lunch...

Anonymous said...

Going to watch ER

Nilla said...

Ok Paula was thinking around 1pm thats enough time for eating and yacking and getting home before really late & dark for those traveling mountain roads n high traffic areas... But everyone must agree...

Anonymous said...

It would be better for me if you have it around 1:00. When Jennifer & I went for lunch this fall they had a full menu I think it needs to be checked out. Sandra may be able to do that for us if the 1:00 hr is good for her.

Going to call it a day & hope for the cam to be up tomorrow full speed ahead

Good Night All
Sweet Dreams & Stay Warm

Good Morning, Suzanne. Hope you didn't hit any icy stretches this morning.

Nilla said...

I wish i could go back and take along hot bath and soak but cant get my heart cath surgery site wet yet... I did take a shower earlier... My daughter is very ill with what seems to be the flu i told her i would open the store in the morning if she needs me to , will know more in the AM , hope she feels better.

Nilla said...

Niters Jo, i am heading out for the night also Letterman is coming on soon and Leno i switch back n forth like them both.. Nighters hope the cam is up tomarrow and the nest has 2 eagles in it...lol Nite

Suzanne said...

Good morning, Eagle world! Bitter, bitter cold outside this morning! Bundle up! No snow or ice on my route coming to work, thankful for that! I see the cam is still down. Have a pic posted from yesterday at 3:07, eagle in nest, but that's as good as it gets this morning. Have to read the blogs to find out how long it was up yesterday. Saw Steve's note they're fixing it from Denver. So maybe the transfer to Wheeling didn't take place yet. Oh well, I know it will be up sometime before eggs are laid! BW eagle cam isn't up yet either, maybe later today (when normal people come to work!).

Ok, things to do, then will read yesterday's blogs.

All have a great eagle day.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Brrrrrrrr..Baby it's cold outside..What a cold, blustery morning. Dusting of snow on the ground here. Good morning, Suzanne!Doing some early am Christmas shopping, just found video accessory for daughter I couldn't get in the store Weds., ordered it and it will arrive in time.YEA!

Anonymous said...

I hate having to sign into this blog before commenting.grrrrrrrrrrrrr

Good Morning Suzanne and Megan...it is very cold here 19 degrees. Snow still laying around..very windy so I'm sure it feels colder than 19.


Suzanne glad your drive in was good. Hope you can make the lunch. I think they are going for 1pm Sat. Dec 16 (Jo this time I didn't write Nov. lol)

Megan I hope your able to stay warm. I think of you often in that cold. Megan will you be able to go to the lunch?

Suzanne said...

Morning, Floralgirl. Morning, Dana. I responded to Paula from Yahoo that I'd love to do the dinner, but that was before I read the blog and found out it changed to lunch. I prefer the lunch, I don't like night driving either. (Though I have to do it 5 days a week!) Yes, I'm planning on doing the lunch at 1.

Floralgirl, you stay warm. It was 18 coming down here, but when I got here, wind was blowing like mad! Not blowing at my house, so I was surprised. Also don't have any snow! Didn't see any on the way down, grateful for that.

Megan, I do most of my Christmas shopping on line every year. No crowds, warm, can shop in my slippers if I want, and no crowds or parking problems. Worth the shipping and handling costs to me! And this time of year a LOT of companies waive the s/h costs, they ship free, so that's even better. And a lot of times, no taxes when buying online. Not all the time, but most. Personally, I love it! You stay warm today, gal!

Suzanne said...

Was just outside, beautiful red sunrise, but bitter cold! Next time I pollute my lungs, it's time to head to the basement!! Still cold, but no wind.

Our cam still down, BW MT, still dark in Kent.

Anonymous said...

Morning, Dana. Hard staying warm sometimes, but I was smart and cut up a lot of greens yesterday so I don't have to do it this morning. Have to make another delivery today though, and hang a garland outside on someone's stair railing.Suzanne, I also love shopping online. The item I ordered this morning ships free, can't argue with that. I love the holidays, but worked retail for years and boy people really forget about their Xmas spirit when they are shopping sometimes.

Suzanne said...

I agree, Floralgirl. People can be extremely rude this time of year! I'd just as soon stay warm and comfy and shop. Credit cards are wonderful things for that! But then, ya always gotta pay those puppies off! Always a catch!

Working Saturday til noon selling wreaths, might be able to make lunch at 1, depends on what I get made today. Figure this is my last really good weekend for selling wreaths, want to have as many made to sell as I can.

The eagle has landed in osprey nest!!

Suzanne said...

So has eagle 2!!

Anonymous said...

OOOhhh- don't even get me started on credit cards, still paying down one that I had to use to buy 2 appliances(OUCH!) smart me ,I am using my check card so it comes out of my checking acct, not gonna charge a bunch of stuff I don't have the money for.

Suzanne said...

Forgot, eagle 1 has a fish, eagle 2 is squaking at the cam. Well, watching the other one eat, now.

Suzanne said...

Number 2 just left, 1 still eating breakfast.

Suzanne said...

Yeah, I know the feeling, Floralgirl. They can add up quickly! I used to have an Amex, and one thing it taught me... you had to pay it in full every month. So I quickly learned to only charge what could be paid off during that month. Good lesson for me. So I do that to this day. I HATE paying interest charges and whatever other charges they tack on! It's outrageous.

Suzanne said...

Oops, breakfast gone, beak cleaned, and eagle gone. Made quick work of that fish!

Mits said...

Good Friday Morning Snow and wind in Maine, Eagle still sitting down in FLA, looks like it is go for a launch in the nest, not with the shuttle. Hope everyone has a peaceful Friday. I'm way behind in doing things:):) too much eagle watching..zoo day today and I'm not prepared yet,so off to do some homework....

Mits said...

What luck just looked in on Maine just in time to see eagle bring in pine branch....love all the sound effects from this cam.

Mits said...

She just flew off, you can hear her, singing, and, her wings flapping as she takes off....amazing.

Mits said...

Dad just brought Mom something to eat in FLA....

Good Friday Morning, Mits! Have a good day at training today. Bundle up, it's bitter cold outside. Wind is blowing here, which makes it even colder. Pet our Tai for all of us. Send him mental thoughts!
