EAGLE IN NEST IN FLORIDA RESTING ON HER EGGS!!!
Thanks, Nilla...glad to see FL back on line.
Just see top of her head but she peeked out, man the wind must be blowin down there, this cam is alittle like Victorias & Sidneys in Canada bouncin around.
You see her PAULA? Beautiful face, that tree looks like one that might have been burnt by a wildfire down there doesnt it.
Oh lok at her magnificent!!! she is standing up
Our nest is MT... Kent is MT.. Florida is home egg setting... Maine is MT but beautiful with snow
NILLA---That is one deep nest---The other day I was watching & out of the blue this head popped up---Then Dad flew in & I watched them eat a fish & work on the nest together---It was exciting to watch!! In fact we all watched them----
HAPPY---HAPPY BIRTHDAY CINDI!!!!!Have a BLAST---ENJOY!!
HEY JO----I haven't heard "How 'bout them apples" for years---GUESS we are dating ourselves---ho! ho!---
ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE, THANKS FOR THE SATURDAY THREAD, STEVEN!
Thanks for the heads- up, JO!!!
HAPPY HAPPPY HAPPY BITRTHDAY, MY BUDDY CINDI:):):)
Nilla, It is a dead tree in FL. I wouldn't think it was burnt given there are other live trees around.
Well let me see the other day i got to singing and our eagles showed so heres a lil diddy.. sing along girlssssssss lalalala to the tune of "Theres No Place Like Home" Liberty and Belle theres no place like home for the holidaysss... No matter where you might roammmmm.. lalalala The eagle moms are waiting for you to arrive...Flying soaring high in the sky.... down by the river and over the woods .. lalalalala Dont you know the homefires are burning deep in the hearts just to see your 2 sweet hearts...So get in that nest a cuddle n coooooooooo do alittle beak kissin cause were missing you!!!!
Apparently, eagles like dead trees to nest in and sit in because their wingspan is so large - so they don't have any difficulty - hitting other branches, leaves and such.
Well Paula sometimes down there the wildfires just take a path and only burn certain areas and not touch others , so who knows any ways great to just see them..
Happy Birthday Cindi , have a Happy Birthdayyyy and all the best to you on this special day!!!
Psssstttt Mits remember what i e-mailed and asked you now AM I GONA RECIEVE???????? roflmao

Glo, What body of water is the Marina in/at/near?
Just came back in - with such great lyrics & bee-bopping going on-Who could resist! lolThis is about the time of day that a feeding would usually take place in the nest for Spunkster.

Anyone just see that exchange in FL?
I think i am going head out to Ken just got in from work and want him to take me afew places shopping and dinner. Have A Great eveening ya'll .. BBL keep tabs on the eagles and critters
Hi all (:They did say that the tree in Florida had broken off. That is the reason they wasn't able to put the other cam in which goes higher to see down inside the nest.
Hey Dana ... Paula i thought i saw one fly over but was talking and missing it if they exchanged in the nest?
lol A little bit ago Tai was in a black round tub just big enough for him to sit in. He was so funny in it. lol
I watched those 2 at 6 am this morning up and he was taking horsey rides on her back..lol I really need to git my butt up and out of here ... Ok heave Ho here i go.. hold down the fort Dana i am sure Glo has some great surprises with new pictures she took today. AND EVERYONE ONE GO AND LOOK AT THE CONTEST PAGE IN AN EARLIER MESSAGE UP ABOVE..lol
Yep We have to start at the beginning though and it won't at all be what you think, but I had to get it and share it anyway LOL. I live along the Mississippi Paula Be patient we know how to do that well on here!!!
OK So as I am crossing the 280 Bridge I do in fact see 2 Gorgeous Bald Eagles perched in the tree, but there is absolutely no where to stop. I decide to take my first exit and go hunting for a back road to ,The tree This is what I came upon as I ventured down the road. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4D_e4dN5MlQIf you need me to email the link to you just ask.
"Horsey Rides" = "Hanky Panky"
Glo I went in to the link you gave. What you find when you go eagle looking gal. If that contest that Nilla spoke about wanted video's "YOU WON ! ". lol I didn't see an eagle perched upon any of those motorcycles lol.
That's some view into the Blackwater eagle cam nest isn't it?We should get to see egg/eggs, them eating and what it is and just a bird's eye view so to speak.
Paula I guess he wants more eggs !!
Dana LOL Tell me about it, and it was a strange back in the middle of nowhere kind of road I was on, and this noise kept getting louder, I am thinking "What the heck am I heading for anyway LOL. Thanks for NOT saying what it is though...need others to find it just like we did for the surprise effect LOL I am working on a Filmloop for what i DID find next, will p[ost those later. too.
Ok Glo waiting to see the film loop.Don't forget to put on here the link for it. Some might not remember it. BBL have to fix dinner
I will give the link for Loop it will be on the Soaring with the Eagles or trying too that I put the photo on this morning. Time to feed some dogs here and I do in fact have more video to upload too.
Eagles at BW Eagle cam
Just checking in to make sure the Blogger cop is behaving!
Maybe he is being bad...no sign of life for 3 hours....
BBL, going to work on Christmas decorations
Guess i am the first to return from going out tonight. Just went to dinner and alittle shopping, Our family has a family friend she is 88 years old named Liz and is she a rip snorter,,lol any ways she is moving into a elderly apartment building( she gets around great for her age) and my sisters and i are filling abasket with cleaning supply's just alot of different things dish towels for Christmas, then we are going to go and get her apartment all set up for her. Guess no sight of our eagles today huh? I need the link to Glo's surprise in e-mail also.
Has Sharon been in today? BBL got to bake a cake for dinner tomarrow daughters frying chicken down home. BBL
Good evening everybody. Been spending time today with Andrew and his girlfriend. She is such a sweet gal. I am so grateful. My baby Andrew is plumb nuts about her. Going to visit for a little while longer and then I am going to bed. BBL! It looks like you all have had a fun day! Happy Birthday Cindi!
I find it really funny that the last post before mine is Nilla asking about me and here I show up. Now you know! :):):)
Oh, how I love seeing OUR nest!!
Well, just stopping by to see if "the tree" is still here!
OK Nilla you have mail.
I also just finished loading 3 videos to the Blog from this mornings photo. Just click on glo and go to the Blog about Soaring iwth the eagles or trying too I will upload the Filmloop with some neat photos in a little while also. Mema Jo I just added the last and longest video since you stopped by. So don't forget to go see it. Vicky I hear it calling your name LOL.Film Loop is next. .I had a great afternoon LOL. I hope someone besides Dana well and now Nilla will also go see how it started when i headed down A Strange back road to go eagle Hunting. it is post 1:11:02
Glo Bug if there was a million dollar prize for the best vid's gir you would win for your hard work ans dedication.... totally awsome
HELPPPPPP Dana is stuck on you tube Glo and its your fault...
LOL Nilla She isn't really stuck there is she. i remember once when she got stuck in her email...she gets stuck kind of a lot come to think of it LOL ((((hugs )))) Well Help her out!
I saw where you went on your back road trip, Glo. Good thing you turned around and got out of there or you would still be stuck in that fast loop-de-loo like Nilla says Dana is stuck in the tube.. lolWhich Tube, Nilla Shall we suction her out?
Somehow, if you can reach her, Nilla, tell Dana that in the menu line if the back arrow is green - click on the little down arrow in between the large arrows. Then scroll down to wherever she was before & click herself back to the blog.
Well you know the turth is you are All very welcome to come to visit. The bad thing about where I live and eagles is they come here during the winter months which means the driving can be unpredictable. But if you can get as far as Vicky on the east side of IL, let her take over and she will get you right to my door. Right Vicky It is wonderful to be able to see so many...but as I said in my tribute last summer i have always loved eagles, BUT i have never loved eagles with names before and the eagles i love with names to go with them live over near you and they are Liberty and Belle and family LOL...especially our 3 little one!!!! grown bigger now for sure.
If Dana is stuck for a long period of time on YouTube - tell her that there is a lot of good things to watch over there. lol Dana - Get back over here
Hello to anyone who's out there...
Hi Belle How are you ? so good to see your name pop up!!!
Oh, Belle, we have missed you!!
YEAH!! Hi to Nilla and Glo and Sharon! I've missed you all!
I might get them there, eventually, after a scenic trip around your town!
How is school going, Belle? Have you been watching how nest? How are you feeling?
Chtristmas break is coming soon for you I would hope Belle
FilmLoop for my trip is now posted. same place as todays videos.
LOL Vicky Well in the winter if you are anywhere within a few miles of my house you can see an occasional eagle at least, and you even managed to find the Marina before you fund me..although they aren't there yet, I checked. They are about 15 mins away now instead of 5 LOL.
This might sounds nuts to you all and that is okay, but I catch myself seeing if I can see the babies in the nest at night!
Hi Belle!I got the good word that you will try your best to make it to lunch this coming Saturday! It will be so good to see you again.
Hi Vicky :) Sharon, I'm hanging in there - my students shared cold germs with me, so I have a doozy of a cold at the moment. Yes on holiday break coming up - last day is the 22nd (students last day is the 21st)... I haven't counted the days, but I guess it is still 2 weeks away - then we're off until the 3rd I think it is... 11 days? I sure can use them :) How's everyone?
Yes Sharon and I bet I know the spot you look the closest at too! catch myself doing the smae thing although I don't want to see them get chased out so I have mixed emotions about whether or not I would want to see one of them there now.
Hi Jo - yepper I'm hoping to get there - surely don't want to miss it!
So far, Sharon at night I do look for Spidey BUT whenever I look at the nest I see the launch pad and the 12 o'clock Spunky spot. Really do miss them & will never forget them in a million years!
Well I have had an awesome day, but the BLOG speaks for itself as far as that is concerned. If you have a chance to click on my name and go to the Soaring with the eagles BLOG I do think you will find something worth clicking over to see.
yep 12 o'clock Spunky spot
I really hope they have moved on and progressing in their lives just like they are supposed to. I would have to get a little upset at Liberty and Belle for chasing them off even though I know that is the way nature intends. Too much heart connected there though! I am so grateful for all of this!!
Who is going to get the wax?I am anxious to hear from Mits as to how Maggie is tonight!
I was in Church but I read Paula's comment that there was: Eagles at BW Eagle camSaturday, December 09, 2006 2:04:02 PM I sure wish I could have seen that!
BOy am I rusty with this blog stuff... I haven't had much chance to check on the nest, but have enjoyed the pics that have been sent and posted. I would have mixed feelings, too, at seeing the 'kids' back at the nest... I can't wait for my chance to have a 'live' sighting of Liberty and Belle...
Just rub a little of the wax you just won on that rusty spot. lol CONGRATS BELLEYou're not rusty - you on the ball
Oh no did i get the wax? I might need some - these legs haven't seen a razor in awhile! LOL
LOL Thanks Jo
I was hoping you would get the wax Belle. Welcome back home!! :):):)
i am trying to load a picture hang on
Sharon For some reason I knew that was exactly what you were waiting for.... loLove
Hmmmm that Dana still hasn't come back here. Could be on her way on over to my house LOL. I have to work tomorrow so I am going to be calling it a night here. Not any time to BLOG or cam watch until tomorrow evening. Hope your eagle viewing tomorrow is good. They need to get back there and tidy stuff up , they have been out and about most of today for sure!

They need to get back there and tidy stuff up , they have been out and about most of today for sure!Sent this once but it didn't post. Maybe Blogger cop got it, Hope it doesn't end up looking like I am stuttering my Good Night all!!!
LOL Ok just came in from letting dogs out. it looks like i'm stuttering alright. and I'm one of the ones without a trash can!!!Oh well Good night everyone.
Sorry Glo, but you definitely stuttered! :):):)
Neat, Glo. I didn't realize you were right on the Mississippi. Does it freeze over much there? I got to see the Mississippi when I was in LaCrosse, Wisconsin last year. We went to a restaurant that was on an island in the middle of the river. Had a really nice view of the river while we ate. On the other side of the river was Minnesota. I was only about 200 miles north of you.
Stuttering - good thing I had the stuttering to catch up on - thought I"d missed a bunch of comments while talking to my son and m-i-l
Stuttered ain't the word for itGLO... LOLIf I do the same thing, I'll die from embarrassment..........Tee Hee
Hi Paula :)It sure is nice to be here :) I won't think about the work I ought to be doing :)
HOwdy Belle! Good to see you here.
JO, They have a clear pic of an eagle at the BW eagle cam. Look on the left hand side. Was there around 3 today. I didn't see him, but I saw 2 there just as it was turning dark.
Hey Sharon, how you doing tonight.Looks like I missed Glo, hopefully she will see my message.
Paula I went to the BW Eagle cam and on the left clicked on eagle and saw the pic that Lisa put there. I hope the two you saw was the good looking eagle couple that visited the osprey nest.
Panda cam 1: It could be Tai eating the bamboo - can't tell for certain.Wonder if our Buta Buta has started to crawl this weekend?
I don't know, Jo, It was hard to see them.I gotta get back to the Christmas decorating...Talk to ya'll tomorrow!
At 10 pm you said for us to hang on, Nilla and that you were trying to load a picture. It is now 10:30 pm - Can we let go?

Well in the mean time i put a homemade oatmeal cake together for dinner tomarrow.. Jo you have an e-mail heading your way inafew k
My computer must be tired, it is taking forever to load this page - maybe it is tryign to tell me something?
I looked at the photos over on the Momster site that GLO took today - they are outstanding. She really should have gotten an good eagle fix this afternoon.
Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur. I hope everybody has a peaceful and restful night. My Mattie is staying with me tonight but starting tomorrow night, she will be back home. Makes me sad. She is such a precious little girl.
Well it is that time of evening... Good Night All Sweet Dreams of Liberty & Belle Stay warm Nilla I will check my emails before shutting computer down. Where is Dana?
Good night all - computer is telling me it is time to go to bed... so nice getting to talk to you all for a little while!
And to all a goodnight! Visions of eagles in our dreams!
Dana is peddlin on getting that picture to work, i am to tired to fool with it any more tonight and told her not to get her sugar all in a tizzy.. Hope Thelma had a nice time with Maggie tonight... Jo sent the mail in 2 peices my brain is really having a rough time tonight.

Got to go make another wreath before loading van for mkt. Must get a Xmas tree after market today, daughter insists. Have a great day all!

Hi Harbinger hows things in Baltimore?
Liberty is nearest to us Belle is in the back
Harbinger I mean't to ask you what area in Baltimore you lived. I lived in Baltimrore 10 yrs. You might not want to say on here. You can email me atWest_Va_gal@yahoo.com
Morning Mits, Paula, and Sharon nice to see you gals. OOppss and lurkers.
What a good morning it is! 10:53am OUR nest has our eagle in it
Snap those pics while I'm getting me some breakfast. Sure I'm bringing it back in here lol (:Don't want to miss our eagles.
Well before I leave Hi Mema Jo morning
Was that ever at fly in Was that both of them flying in or was one still in the nest and one flew in????
Glad to see you back Harbinger!
Such a busy beautiful sunny morning for all of you. I just can't help staring at the nest with our Liberty & Belle being home. I am so thankful that they brought the cam up as early this season as they did... We just knew they would be there for us!Life is good!
Gosh they are beautiful!!!!
Eagle still at BW, looks like he is eating.
The BW eagle is in her nest. Lisa has two pics over on the left in her comments that you may wish to see. I agree Paula that Liberty & Belle are too beautiful for words. It is great to get to know them as a couple before they start parenting again.
That's OK. I live in NE Baltimore City - just a 30 minute walk to the old Memorial Stadium and about a 30 minute walk to Towson.I was hesitant to check because I knew there was a chance that Liberty & Belle would decide to nest elsewere, but was I delighted to see them there.How long have they been back?
I am watching Liberty up there at the noon position - Guess we know now who Spunky got it from lol
Back to 1
Which is the one left? Does anyne know if it is Liberty or Belle?
There's a new Sunday Thread.
Harbinger I was born and raised in South Baltimore, Locust Point, Home of Ft McHenry, my sisters' still live there. I was up in Baltimore last night, love the way the people in the city decorate...have you ever been to the 34th street decorations, I hear they are fantastic.
Harbinger I worked at the Va Hospital near where the old stadium was.I lived Cambridge street Fells Pt.,Middle River, Edgewood husband left I moved to Dundalk where nurses from hospital lived in apts.Had family lived off Light Street behind Federal Hill.Small world isn't it
