Here I am! Thanks Steve.
Funny things is that I was making a plea for a new thread & when I posted I saw Nilla's heads-up!
I had to say
Oh, Shoot! Bite my tongue about the request I just made! Steve is always a step ahead - we just can't see him coming! Thanks, Steve!

Come on GLO The FL cam is clear

You beat me over GLO only because you type faster lol

Glo now you have to settle down dear...don't get your blood pressure up it will make your cold worse. It is ok TO WORRRRRYYY CAUSE I HAVE BEEN DOING THAT FOR DAYS sorry lost control...regaining control over my emotions now. Daddy will come as we have seen "mother nature" knows more than we do..
Also if Mommie needed him I think when he brought food in she would have killed him lol (((hugs dana)))

Bad news on my email
Undeliverable - seems that I have a hard time with these people in FL. I hope that Iris see this! lol

Strange that just the other day an email from me to Lynda went right through....... But the cam is clear & just maybe there will be an update on the home page soon.......

They are paning very close to nest agin trying to see through the twigs is my guess

Nilla said...

She is back up and calling.. Just a short tip if you click on the atand alone on the page and open it and click on the - at the top right hand corner it will go into your bottom task bar... then click the double up n down arrows for the smaller screen to stay there and its always up no moving around...

IrisF said...

Hey guys, it is not raining in Ft.Lauderdale and the nest is way up north about 100 miles from there in Port St. Lucie... My view it looks very clear - I sure don't see what you all are seeing. I had to go the stand alone though, as the other cam would not load...

I just posted this on the other blog sorry, didn't know this one was up.

is Buta learning to set on her romp??? she is trying

Anonymous said...

I which they would pull the cam back just a little from the nest. He might come in and be on the edge of the nest and we wouldn't be able to see.

Nilla said...

Hi Iris i love the stand alone cam just bring it up when something exciting is happening...

Nilla said...

HAHAHA i think Buta is practicing her panda rolls so adorableeeeeeeeeee

Remember Tai's love of padlocks?

IrisF said...

I swear the whole internet is slow today, what in the world is going on???

Keep in mind it is very warm down here, so the eggs are really not in danger of getting too cold - too hot maybe, but probably not as deep in the nest as they are. Especially if there was a little shower to wet things down around them.

I've decided that it is the camera that is doing most of the moving because the whole background moves too, which would not be the case if it was just the tree swaying. Of course, it could be a combination of both???

Live feed is down.....

TAI sitting with his back to the crowd at the window----THEY loved it---snapping his pic, etc.----Then he moved on---

Nilla said...

Iris once you get what looks like a control lil box in the task bar at the right in the far corner those 2 little arrows 1 goes up 1 goes down...

Nilla said...

i seen that Norma thats where Mits and i sat watching Tian Tain that day

Anonymous said...

Thanks Norma for Maine alert

IrisF said...

Nilla, I'm using 98SE and all I see is the RealPlayer logo on the bottom tool bar... Maybe I need XP?? to see the up n down arrows?

Thanks Dana, I didn't think about the camera being right in the tree. That would make the horizon go up and down as the tree swayed. My logic was faulty...:)

IrisF said...

I still have the FL stand alone cam up and running. Momma is really scanning the sky...

Nilla said...

i have never seen Tai climb up where he is maybe trying to escape..lol

Tai was really going to town on that bamboo - how long has he been doing that?

Anonymous said...

FL NEST You know, Iris said it was hot down there - may be the reason for her mouth to be open so much.
Up standing on edge of nest - looking down in nest - (counting chicks I bet) looking up to the sky....back down in nest but standing - I think she just laid down... her head is visible - turning from side to side. Will check on her later........Have to go find ButaButa..

Anonymous said...

Iris, I think the updates said that about 1 or 2 months ago that Tai starting actually stripping the stalks and eating them. I'd have to read some of the Zoo updates to be sure since our Panda Mom Mits isn't here!

Anonymous said...

IRIS FYI
November 16 : Pandas and Bamboo
Tai Shan has started to eat bamboo culm over the past month. This is the very hard stalk of the bamboo that should be inedible to all life forms. Pandas find this part of the plant highly palatable, intermittently throughout the year, for unknown reasons. It could be that it actually tastes different! At other times, they eat the ever-so-slightly more digestible leaves.

Well we have an MT Nest
ButaButa has been put back to sleep
Tai & Mei are eating dinner
SuLin is following her mother, Bai around just like Tai.
All nest MT

Time for a break! BBL

live cam is a strugglin

IrisF said...

This is the first time I have heard sound when watching the Nat'l Zoo Panda Cam. Is it my computer or have they changed something? They do really enjoy that bamboo!!!

Still have an MT nest in WV and our momma in FL seems peaceful enough for now at least.

Anonymous said...

Yes Iris there was either an exchange, or she got up and left for just a short minute or so, about 10 mins ago. Glad to NOT see that intense vocalizing any longer. Maybe she was just announcing to everyone...Hey world they're a hatchin LOL.

Anonymous said...

and the live cam, well its got all kinds of interesting colors etc. not much else now though.

Anonymous said...

man I hate to see those psychedelic colors creeping down the still cam now :(

IrisF said...

Who is it - Suzanne? that says that when it looks like that it's on drugs??? Or Speed, or something?

I notice we have a few blue lines from time to time on our 30 sec. refresh screen too... Hope it stays up this weekend.

Anonymous said...

Panda Cam GA has a very long update for today, Friday. Very interesting.

IrisF said...

Did I see an exchange take place on the nest in FL or was that Momma, leaving and returning? I sure couldn't tell. Of course, it was several minutes ago now. This Blog timed out on me again. grrrr

The Atlanta Zoo answered a lot of questions today, thanks Mema Jo...

IrisF said...

Off to make dinner, bbl

Anonymous said...

Yes Iris it happened twice within about half hour time. Along with the loud vocalizing again actually. No way to tell really if there was an exchange.

Anonymous said...

well the live cam appears to be up but I do find it strange that it is much lighter outside after 6 pm East than it is at 5pm in Central State so...although the picture is clear I highly doubt it is current.

Anonymous said...

No, cam is definitely not current, it is dark here. Mine has lines across the top, too. Hope we are not going to be stuck with a non-working cam all wknd. It's a long wknd too, Monday is a holiday.

Yes floral and I did mean the still cam. Yep long weekend. it has been a great week though and we have got lots of neat film captures and photos from the cam when it did work well for us. Timing is everything LOL.

IrisF said...

OK, I feel better now, you all have answered all my questions even before I got back on to ask them. You are mind readers!!!

It sure is funny how the time can be right and the picture not refreshing. Seemed like if it was too dark to see the FL cam, it had to be dark or near dark in WV...

Strange things on the internet today is all I can say. Maybe it was all that Love in the Air?

Phew - lots of action to catch up on today - thanks for emailing pictures of Liberty taking liberty with Belle today - 4 times - ghesh, they want to be sure they get it right, I guess... practice makes perfect...

Good evening all my eagle buddies. I am staying home tonight for the first time since losing my sister. Good to be back in my room, in my bed with all my dogs and Mattie with me!

One year ago I had not one clue any of you even existed and now I feel so blessed with some of the closest friends I have ever had!

I won't know if it is getting rid of the abscess for a couple more weeks when I go back to Charlottesville. I go Monday to the surgeon here to have a colonoscopy scheduled. I still have quite a bit of pain and don't have much energy most of the time. Of course, I also haven't been resting much either. I am starting back to work on Monday, only 4 hours a day. Hopefully I will be able to. Hard to live without money! :)

Maine is pretty as usual and the eagles called are heard.

I do believe after watching the female eagle in the nest in Florida. That there is at least one eaglet....saw her removing from where stuff would be under her. Materials which I believe is probably where the eaglet used the "potty". Only my thoughts...
