Gosh, I'm first for the second time today! Thanks Steve.
Good Afternoon!Way to go, Sandra :)Looks like I just missed L&B.
Yeah, Paula, they have been busy in the nest today.
copied overWell was trying to nap but each time I glanced it looks likes there was still more to eat for lunch in the nest. Pretty good eating in Shepherdstown today, well if you are an eagle anyway LOL Monday, January 29, 2007 1:46:00 PM
I think the couples dining together has been pretty good at BW too today. Just a good MOnday for the eagles and the eagle watchers :)
Both BW eagles at nest, eating. Still 2 eggs.
Back to one at BW, sitting on the eggs.
Thanks for new thread.Sandra thank you for the heads up on new thread. Looks like the BW eagle has some feathers maybe laying in nest. Where they pulled for more "brood spot".
Thank you Sandra for the heads up & Thanks for taking care of us Steve.Hope Mits finds us when she gets home from the grocery store.For certain - Lisa says that there are 2 eggs for BlackWater nest. I thought I had seen another object earlier.
There might have just been a shift change at BW can't be sure.Jo I've only seen two eggs so far.But maybe someone seen 3.
I am going out for a while. Be back about 9. I hope everybody has a good eagle watching evening!
BOO!!!! FOUND YOU, THOUGHT YOU ALL WOULD SNEEK AWAY FROM ME, HUH!!!!, YOU GOT TO GET UP PRETTY EARLY IN THE A.M. TO GET AWAY FROM ME..THAT'S RIGHT MOST OF YOU DO GET UP EARLY. :):):) THANKS SANDRA FOR THE HEADS-UP, AND THANKS, STEVEN FOR THE NEW "COLD" THREAD, WHERE'S OUR EAGLE????
I say we don't have a NESTOR tonightI'm going to have to go to the polls again!!!
Jo, she may be lurking!!!!
Mits you know how in the Maine eagle nest we could hear the eagles calling back and forth. Have you ever heard that in the SC cam??
No, Dana, not yet, but, when I have the cam down at the bottom of my screen, I hear their wings flapping when they are landing or taking off.
Yes me too it's so funny we don't hear them calling. Have been listening for that since Maine has been down. But no calling.
Lisa has an update on BW Eagle & Osprey page
live-feed is down
Going to be down loading some pictures of family from today. I'm keeping an eye on our Eagle Cam....MT nest as of right now.....How about that BW pair- Celebrating their 2 eggs with a Duck Dinner this evening! bbialw
Cool! Missed the duck dinner...but she put my pic under the 2 egg pic :)NO dog walking tonight...way too cold!
Dana, did you send the duck picture? I see you noticed the feathers.
If you want to hear the Santa Cruz eagles, here is a link to a youtube video of a food fight! Cut and paste into your browser.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ6Qxp2eryw
I'll be lurking till 24 comes on at 9....
So, Paula, do you have the dogs toilet trained?
It must be an accountant thing...hubby likes that too, Paula:):):)
EAGLE AT WEST END, BUT CAM IS FUNKY.
PAULA, THAT WAS AN AMAZING VIDEO, THANKS.
So sad, getting dark at KENT, but what a great a.m. it was.
So sad or So Satisfied from seeing all that you did today.....Just watched the video Paula suggested. That was amazing footage..I thought K10 was going to take that branch & cold cock K26 in the head for not sharing.. lolThe HulaBunee has quite a lot of videos - While we are waiting for 33+ days to pass from Laying eggs to Hatching - we can watch a lot of videos....
LOL, thought so too, Jo, then I thought #10 was trying to poop-shoot #26 in the face to retaliate.
It's a good night to lay an egg - But you know who must not agree
I'm keeping an eye out for her, don't forget you and Sharon saw her the other night, late.
I'll be checking also. It will freak you out if you see her fly in.
Egg turning at BlackWater
No, Mits, they are relegated to the fenced in back yard.
They do like to drink out of the toilet, tho! :0
My son got me watching 24 about 3 years ago...loved it!
GLAD YOU DON'T HAVE TO WALK THEM ON SUCH A CHILLY NIGHT..
feathers still left over from duck dinner.
Come on home Belle....
I am back. I hate to see the live feed is down but am really grateful the still cam is still up for now.
Welcome Back! Are your street ok for traveling or icy?
Sharon - How long are you going to be Tweetie Bird? Just asking...
Mattie keeps fussing at me and wanting me to put her picture back on here. My street is icy but the main roads are okay.
I am open to suggestions about what to put on here. Any ideas?
What kinda pic are you in the mood for??
Put Mattie Jane back on there until the 1st egg is laid!
Sounds like a good idea....Hooray for Mattie Jane...
I really thought tonight might be the night.
Eagle is sleeping at BW.
Mom at BW has been up and now looks awake
Hi, everyone, hope you are well...Very, very sorry to hear Barbaro had to be put down...what a great horse. He was probably already gone, but I was reading about the latest abcess, etc., while eating lunch. It seems the broken bones had healed, and he probably would have made it except for the laminitis. This evening they said the prognosis had taken a nose dive, and he would have been suffering a lot...guess they made the right decision, and I'm glad they made as much effort to save him as they did.Jim
Yes, Jim, I'm glad they tried so hard also, said they learned alot and next time might help another horse if the same type of scenario plays out. Say what you will about horse-racing that horse was happy when he was racing. RIP DEAR BARBARO!
BW Mom seems restless tonight, really keeps turning
Okay, how is this now?
I still see that MT nest.Good to have Jim stop in - Paula either fell asleep or found another TV show. Same for Sharon! Mits - don't know what to do with these youngin's I am glad you stick with me..........
Hi Mattie JaneSharon I almost gave up on your coming back - but I was so hoping you would bring Mattie with you.
well I am going to call it a night too. Been doing a little cruising nOT to be confused with surfing LOL. I hope BW lady doesn't have another egg now. I think those 2 for a young couple well any couple will be plenty. Good to see Mattie back too LOLGood night everyone
It is almost time for me to call it a day! No it is time right now. Good Night Everyone Pleasant dreams & peaceful sleep Prayers are going up for allGood morning, Suzanne JANUARY 30 TUESDAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MEGAN
Ive been playing with videos...got another one on the eagletmomsters.blogspot.com
Yes, welcome back Mattie Jane, I went off and watched the end of CSI...Miami, but all those flashing lights and herky-jerky camera movements gave me a headache. GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
Has anyone heard from Nilla?
Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur. I hope everyone has a peaceful and restful night!
Sandy, I haven't heard from Nilla.
Sweet Dreams everyone, my cousin has gone to bed and I'm going to go too. May or may not have more time to post tomorrow. I'll read whenever I can and post too.Will keep you all in my prayers tonight.((((((HUGS))))))
Morning, eagle world. Nice out, cold but no wind. 19° at my house, 21° here. I'm batting 1000, made it just at 4 this morning. Ok, later in the week it gets, later I get. Probably be after 4 tomorrow.See our Lady Blackwater is still asleep on her eggs, and our cam is doing it's usual...lines at the top, and when it refreshes, we get the pretty blue screen again. I'm beginning to think I would miss the lines if I ever come in and they're not there! THEN, I'll think they're something wrong with the cam!Not even gonna attempt to read blogs, may just browse.Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!
Oh, we're turning the eggs.
She's in a strange position now. She was her wings spread, and her head was tucked under her wing. As I typed, she moved her head. Wings still way out, though. Nope, there goes head back under wing, tail flipped to the side. I'll send pics to Lisa.
Switched again, now facing 3 vice 12. She can't get comfy this morning.
Lady BW still facing 3 o'clock, she just sorta moves her head every once in a while. Not getting much on our cam, it (head just went under wing), refreshes with an actual pic about every 3rd refresh. Other refreshes are lines and either a blue screen, or a totally black screen. Oh well, I'm sure someday we will get a working cam.
Just went outside for a sec, and Lady BW has switched positions again. She's now facing 4 o'clock. Can still see the feathers in her nest from their duck dinner last night.Blue screen again on our cam. Least it's a pretty blue, I guess.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGAN!!!! Had a reminder on my calendar, thanks to Jo! I would sing to ya, but that would send you out in the cold in a REAL BIG HURRY, so don't want to do that! Hope you have a great Birthday!!!
Good morning Suzanne. Thanks to you and all the others who have sent birthday wishes!
Hey girl!! Hope you have a wonderfl birthday!! Make hubby wait on you hand and foot. Or something...
Turning eggs in BW.
OK, he's doing a whole sink full of dishes right now, so I'm off to a good start!
Mom just left the nest, there are our 2 eggs and what may be a wing left over from the duck dinner last night. oops, somebody is back already. That was quick!
That's a good thing, Floralgirl! Maybe he can do mine when he's finished with yours. Or better yet, give him the vacuum! Then take a pic!
OH, have to tell everyone before I forget again. Tai was on the news last night. DC and China are in negotiations to keep Tai here longer than June, when he is supposed to return to China. So far, they think the chances are good, and he may be here until late fall or early winter. That's a start!!!! Then maybe they can prolong it even longer!!!
BTW, our cam is not updating. That's still the middle of the night pic, and it's getting daylight outside now. So guess the lines aren't the only thing that's consistent.
Vacuum? Ha! I don't want to make it snow... anyway, he's out the door to work, so I'll settle for the now empty sink which was piled with dishes.
Eagle in osprey nest. May be Lady BW, cause Lord BW is keeping the eggs warm.
LOL, well Megan, that's a start! Bless his heart! He done good... (make sure that's only a START!)
MT osprey nest. Lord BW turned his eggs, he's comfy now.
Thanks for the email about the USS NY, hadn't heard anything about that in the news.
Good Morning everyone. Happy Birthday Megan Off to coffee and dog treats. Will have my eyes to the cams a little later this morning after I go buy a bed LOL. yep found one finally.
Good Morning Suzanne and Megan.HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGANHave a wonderful day!!!
Thanks, Glo. Out of here now, too.Hoping for a phone call, gotta get off the internet for a while. Later...... hope someone hits the EASY button for WV cam soon!
Thank you, Iris!
Morning, Iris and Glo. Yup, need the easy button for our cam. I finally turned mine off, let me know if it comes up today.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR MEGAN,HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU -- AND MANY, MANY, MANY MORE!!!!!!
Eagle at NE!!!
Morning Iris, Suzanne, Sharon, Glo and Happy Birthday to Megan.
Reading back over the blogs comments I seem where someone ask "If I was the one that snapped the pic of the feathers of the duck". No I wasn't. That was an awesome picture. Thanks to whomever took it. I actually thought the feathers I seen were where Bw eagle has pulled some more off the "brood spot on its chest.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FLORALGIRL/MEGAN, HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY OF GREAT SURPRISES, SEEMS LIKE YOU ALREADY HAD ONE, WITH HUBBY DOING DISHES.:):):)
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE Going to check e-mails and eagle-surf.
27° here in beautiful Bethesda, Maryland!
Moring Mits it is 20 here suppose to not be nice afternoon.
Morning, Dana. Morning, Mits. Morning, Sharon. Morning to everyone on the blog and even the lurkers!Think Lord BW is still sitting on the eggs, I haven't seen a switch, but I've been on the other computer. He just has his wings together... He's a good daddy...
I SEE DANA GOT THE WAX!! CONGRATS!
Morning, all. See BW still has 2 eggs and a duck wing in the nest!I wonder if someone is working on our cam...maybe that's why it hasn't been reset yet?
Happy Birthday, Megan!
How are you feeling today, Sharon?
Wow no one said and I didn't know it till I just came back from viewing cams.I won "100 lbs of wax energy to power up our cam" maybe it will start working. HERE YOU GO NCTC.Florida gal just won't give up.
DANA YOU HAVE MAIL...
How's it going Paula??????
ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAWN AT KENT.
Morning Paula I sent some additonal power to them.Thanks Sharon had refreshed and nothing there then typed and boom there you and Paula are. lol crazy blog
2 eggs in sight at BW
1/30/07 updates on both BW sites. Great pic of juvie harassing adult eagle by Bob Quinn, may have seen him Sunday and not even knew who he was.
Love to watch the dawn in Kent, Mits, beautiful.
2 EAGLE EGSS AND A DUCK WING IN THE NEST...sung to the tune of 12 days of Christmas...now get that tune out of you head today:):):)!
Cool, Mits. Cheeky guy, isn't he?
Did you all see my comment about Tai on the news last night? He may get to stay until late fall or early winter. Hoping they work out more time for him here! (He was on NCB25 at 5 news.)
Yes, Suz...talk about your dawns' early light at KENT....fantastic.
Mits - The eagle, or Bob Quinn? :)
Yes, Suzanne, it was posted on the zoo panda page last week.
I'm good Mits, and you?
I am feeling a lot better. Still don't know yet if the abscess is totally cleared up though.
LOL...BOB?? SOME GUY WAS SITTING IN A BIG-A%& TRUCK, WITH A CAMERA.
Hear some bird calling at SC.
Cool, Mits. I'll bet it was him. Lisa said that pic was from Sunday. Too bad you didn't know who it was. You could have told him how much we enjoy his photos.
What will they do to recheck it Sharon?
Paula, those pics were taken about 45 mins after we left...
Our cam sometimes its blue, sometimes its dark:(:(:(
Sometimes I fell like a mother-less child...I'm in a singing mood today:):)
George is in the nest at KENT
QUICK VISIT BY GEORGE.
EAGLE AT 2 HARBORS..
Paula, I have to have another CAT scan but am waiting on insurance approval for that.
2 harbors eagle keeps looking to the sky.
Let's hope that approval comes PRONTO!!!!!!
EAGLE AT WE.....
BUTA is roaming around in the outside den, LUN is sleeping.
Not really outside den, but outer den.
Lun is up...
LOL....hope you all saw that, Lun was going back to the birthing den and BUTA was trying to climb thru and could't and LUN grapped her by the scruff of the neck and pulled her thru...
2 EAGLES AT WEST END.
Mits, whatever you had for breakfast, I want some!!!
Good morning everyone and a very happy birthday and better days ahead to you, Megan. Has anyone heard from Nilla?
Hi good morning Sandra..
Suz, no breakfast yet, but 2 cups of JAVA, maybe I was heavy-handed with the coffee this a.m.
Buta Buta is trying to come out
Nope I was out I'm going back in lol on the move
A really young Ray Charles thats had too many to drink lol up and stands and back legs go out from under her and down she goes . She is awesome and precious.
Mits, I fixed a good cup of java Sat, and even cooked breakfast (which I almost NEVER do), but it just made me sleepy! Ate, drank the coffee, sat on the couch to watch the today show, got comfy, and woke up at quater to 12 and had to rush and get my mail! Seems I'm not drinking the right coffee!!
OH, ewwwwie sanitation engineer at osprey. He's looking for more leftovers. Now he's got a friend.
I think Buta Buta thinks that place on the burlap bag is mommie milk bar.
Yikes, what a face....
Oh good grief, up close and personal of Mr. Ugly!
That must be a Mommie substitute for climbing on and biting. lol Buta Buta is doing a fine job of it.
And with that said, he comes in for a close-up.
Oops, Morning, Sandra!
Yup Mits, now he's posing! Ewwwww
My he is putting on quite the show for us..he is too sexy for his feathers....another song...
Look at Lord BW looking at the sky!! Now he's laying down looking up, he was standing.
Don't know if it is live or re-runs in Maine, but something is up. watching video..
Ok, Mits. And now there are 2. Think of another song???
EEEWWWIIIEE all gone...
Man, Lord BW is just squaking. I'm guessing Mom's around and he's trying to get her to come in and take over. He's been there a while.Our ewwie's are taking off, soon to be MT osprey nest.
Guess there will be duck sandwiches for lunch today at BW.
Yup, looks like. Lady BW doesn't eat as much as our Big Belle since she's already laid her eggs.Watched that clip from yesterday where Belle just took her meal and left with it! Little porker! She was not gonna share with Little Liberty. Poor thing.
Mr Personality Plus is back in the osprey nest.
Yes, Suzanne, she was RUDE, snatched that right from his beak and then left...
Tian is sleeping and Mei and Tai are eating bamboo together sooo cute.
2 eggs at BW
He gave up trying to get mom, their's our 2 eggs. Well never mind, before I finished typing, someone came back...
Was a changing of the guard at BW
Good Late Morning EveryoneIt must be Megan's birthday! Wishing you a fantastic year ahead, galButa Buta is making for me a good morning & I think I heard singing comding from this blog...How could that be?
Yeah, thought that was funny, Mits. She is wanting to eat all the time. At this rate, they're gonna have to expand, she's gonna lay about half a dozen eggs!
I really wish they would keep one of the cams on TIAN..more.
Morning, MemaJo! Mits is on a roll this morning!
Those 2 eggs for BW should be just enough for the young first timers.
Boy, Tai took off and up the tree he went...
Suzanne - I have a stray......you know what & it is so cold outside....
Mits I love the leafless trees!Makes for better viewing of our little Prince. Where's Norma...?
OMG, MemaJo, I have another one that's coming around. You just want to bring them in, don't you? Way too cold. Is it a feral cat, or a stray? As cold as it is, I feel so sorry for them! I just put out extra food now, and 3 bowls of water. Some are deeper than others, and it takes longer to freeze, so they (hopefully) have water all day. Water is usually frozen when I give them breakfast, though.
Buta Buta is doing a slow walk...Looks like she is going to attack something.. Oh Oh the Step
How do you tell the difference between a stray & a feral? Just HOMELESS I guess. Water does freeze...Put a box outin case he/she would go in it.
Tai is higher then the camera can go!Think we'll see some 'fight-play' with LunLun and Buta Buta. COME ON UP WV CAM...........
Only way I can tell is a feral cat is not used to people at all and will run away. Usually a stray is used to humans, and will let you get half way close (depending on how long they've been out). If there is any other way to tell, I don't know it. A stray will eventually warm up to you. A feral never will. The yellow tom that comes around my house is feral. He doesn't run away now, he just walks half way to the fence, but I have to act like I don't see him, or he DOES run.
Morning Jo, not much eagle action this a.m., but lots of panda stuff...ran out like a crazy woman in my pj's this a.m., chasing a cat who was going after my birds.....:(:(GRRR.
From the Maine Eagle cam Blog:Monday, January 29, 2007Computer back online! We are back and running. Please check tonight to see if the new infrared light is working correctly.
Look at the Maine site closely. They cut a branch off the nest tree. Found that info on the blog.http://baldeaglecam.blogspot.com/
Been having computer problems this morning. Anyway, Buta is walking around with a little piece of bamboo in her mouth. Now she is playing with it.
Thanks, Paula, been watching all a.m. and hoping it was live.
Update on ButaButa's page is very interesting... I see that our Tai has a photo there.
Trash truck at Maine...
Sharon, my puter is real sluggish this a.m., must have brought virus back from OC.
Mits - Don't understand your comment..... ME
Maybe that is not a trash truck at Maine, maybe it is a repair truck...
Lun Lun just did a topsie turvie on Buta Buta.
GOOD NOON-TIME EAGLE BUDDIES---HELLO to EVERYONE--Repair people here---back at 1:00--I was watching BUTA (Little BEAUTY)---Yesterday she learned to get on top of the burlap bag----Today, it's her very best friend--Can't get enough of it---& the sticks--had some of the fuzz up her nose--(cute)--she got it----Loves those BOO sticks----Now too SLEEPY to raise her head---SHARON---I vote for you to have BUTA as your pic---!
Nobody loves meeverybody hates meguess I'll go eat worms.Got that silly song in my head and can't get it out, so thought I'd share...
Jo could hear a big truck stop under the nest at Maine, thought it sounded like a trash truck or repair truck coming to fix cam...go to the address Paula gave us...all quiet at Maine now.
