STEVEN--What a beautiful way to start your day----Thanks for keeping us up to date----HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!

BW Osprey cam is hiccupping. Wonder if they're trying to set up the eagle cam? Nope, just checked. Sometime in the next couple of weeks. But there is an update on the BW eagle cam site, and an Eagle Watchers Guide.

Suzanne said...

Osprey cam is down again...

Copied over from past thread :-)


Thanks Norma Yes I am driving in first snow of the year, and its a whopper. neighbor and I just finished shoveling me out LOL. Grabbing a bowl of cereal real quick now and hoping to see a plow go by on my street, not gonna happen, but once I get a couple of blocks it should get much much better. No school anywhere today so the kids are NOT out this morning!!!! :-)

Its not volunteer although in the future I certainly will have what I do on the list of places I will Volunteer..... But for today .I have a major responsibility to be there...today and get it set to go tomorrow.

Will BLOG tonight a little unless I get snowed in there, at least where I am working I can get snowed in and have food warmth and a bed to sleep in...its not all that bad once I get there.


Have a safe day out east too.

Getting daylight in Kent. Still too dark to see if anybody's home. BW is up and down today.

Suz, BW says they are checking out the cam...also, the eagle watcher's guide is the one that they have had.

OK, Steve, where's the pic?!

Suzanne said...

Yeah, Paula. Lisa sent me an email, said she was gonna do that. And yes again, it's the same eagle watchers guide. There may be people on here that don't have that yet. And new people starting to watch their eagle cam that have not seen it. She just posted it again because they're getting ready to go live too.

Daylight in Kent, nobody home.

I'm BACK---Our electricity has been flickering off & one---I HOPE this is not a preview of things to come w/high winds predicted----CLOCK & COMPUTERS are now all working----WHERE ARE THE EAGLES LURKING???---Winds seem to be calm at the zoo---TAI is so laid back---he eats his bamboo while lying on his back!!!

Saw the eagle at Kent & then watched him fly away---White tail feathers & all---

Eating breakfast in FL, nice close up shot...eagle at Kent gone

Suzanne said...

Just got an email from Lisa, guess she's tired of me telling her the cam is down again. She said I could share this info:

"...they're working on it, but may take some time as they're getting ready for the open house tomorrow. If you get strong storms, electricity may go out. I don't know if the wind is bad yet down at the refuge, but that might be what's causing the image delays. The wind and such can mess with our satellite dish reception."

So now you know what's going on with the BW cam. It's up and down, but it seems to have been up for a while now, but haven't been watching. Friday, everybody has to put all the fires out before the weekend!

normabyrd said...

I was watching the majestic eagle eating in FL----Then electric went off again----Also TAI is a "sharpie"---Playing with a ball--when he rolls it--SNACKS fall out------So has this thing really figured out--ho! ho!

I will check back in if Electricity behaves--ho! ho!

Good Morning (Almost noon) All eagles should be soaring with ease in this blustery wind. Thanks for the news article - guess that eaglet looks just like our 3 kids who are only a few months older. I just thought all the eaglets(juvies) would be down in warmer climates by now.

Morning, MemaJo. Is it windy out now? I know it's still warm, but haven't been out in a while.
Guess I'll find out shortly, getting ready to get outta here! Should take less than 3 hours this weekend. Took 3 hours Wed before Thanksgiving to get home. Rain, more rain, and TONS more cars than normal!

Yes, Suz it is windy! I can hear it whistling thru the windows here. Still a balmy 66°, temp hasn't dropped yet!

Suzanne said...

Ok, thanks Paula. Guess I'll go out and fight the wind. Just looked outside, no rain yet, but looks like it's misting. I'm glad, my jacket is still in my car. Staying nice and warm and dry! Well, maybe it is raining. Just heard someone tell someone else to run to their car. Guess I'll take my umbrella out of my drawer!

Ok all, time for me to hit the road. All have a great afternoon/ evening. Hope everybody's electric stays on... including mine!

Stay safe, warm, and dry this weekend. Hope all that aren't feeling well get well quickly!

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

WOW!!! someone turn off the fan!!! Really battling the wind out there.. had to cut some greens, yikes, this is awful. At least no major rain so far, but this wind is scary. Hope everyone's power stays on. Hey Glo hope you make it to and from work ok. My daughter wants your snow,she was pouting this morning seeing the weather, might send her your way to help shovel. Back to work, BBL if it's possible and I don't blow away out there.

Oh, Boy! That's a great shot. Looking right at camera. I agree with Paula that temps down there are high and that's the reason for the 'open beak' a lot of the time and that the eagle isn't really squawking. I love this live feed....

Hi everyone. Made it to work and home safely. Tough getting in but not bad at all getting home, well ya know til you get to the subdivisions and want down your street. I actually did get my car to and into my dirveway and finally garage though. My neighbor lady has hers int he street. Not good for her car or the street when the plows do finally go through. She has 2 sons close enough to help her hopefully later this evening though. My guess is the plows will do a much better job during the night and tomorrow Our Open House should be fine weather. We are expecting 150 people who helped to put this together. NOT open to the Public though so sorry as it is actually an undisclosed loaction etc. Very Very exciting for a handful of us as we have watched a dream and a prayer come to be right before our very eye!!!! Time now to eat!

HI EVERYONE, Glo that is truly amazing that you can get a snow-plow in your sub-division right after a storm, we do not have that amount of equipment here in the DC area, so people make fun of us, when we can't get our act together, right after a storm, and there are alot of hilly areas in Montgomery and Frederick counties.

Hi My Eagle Friends.

Pretty late getting in here.

Yesterday I laughed and laughed at Tai outside eating bamboo laying on his back same as he is doing now inside.

Glo glad you was able to make it in and out. How much snow did you all get?

Was getting hair cut today. Electric went out twice in that short amount of time in the beauty shop.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Hello Dana. How goes it with you?

Mits said...

Jo, that e-mail really amazed me too, like having a dog, but none of the responsibility.

Poor little Tai has such a rough life. I don't know how the little feller makes it from day to day! :):):)

All of a sudden he is really into the bamboo and loving it.

Okay, I am feeling like a neglected redheaded stepchild! :)

They eat a lot of bamboo, but it passes thru their system in about 5 hours, so they have to eat a lot to feel full. Pandas poop even though they are sound asleep. Nice little tid-bit of knowledge.

I agree about the panda poop, I told them that I would probably be doing the same thing in about 20 years. Jo, remember a couple of reports back on the panda page, they informed us they would probably be watching Mei and Tai 24/7 during the weekends, they are concentrating on how many times he is nursing now and if they will pull the plug or let him to continue to nurse.

Yes Mits, I do remember it was in the report. I thought I was seeing some lights on & thought of that same information. Looks as Tai is too interested in his bamboo. I don't know what is with Mei.... sorta restless.

More sightings of our eagles! I received this email this morning.


I saw the most amazing thing this morning.

Hi,

I heard the squawk of a bird a few minutes ago (about 7:10 AM) and looked out the window toward the river.

I saw an adult eagle flying in circles but not landing as if to fish which is what we would normally expect to see.

After a couple of circles over our patio (facing the river) and new screened porch I saw an immature eagle also flying right with the adult, also in circles.

This continued for a minute or so, then they flew off towards Shepherdstown, still circling though, as they moved away.

I have no idea what was going on but it was fascinating behavior and a great payoff for being up early on Saturday morning!

Any ideas what might have been happening? Was the adult teaching the younger one something or trying to lead it away? We are probably only a mile from the nest in the sycamore, as the eagle flies.

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!
