GOOD MORNING, EAGLE LOVERS,

It's pretty coolish for CA this morning. Might be freezing in some areas.

Wanted to give you a link while the weekend is young

How to get to chat if Blogger is down as going through my BLOG won't work then either of course.

Here is direct link. Go there and Bookmark if you want to have this info. Don't want to leave you out.


http://chat.parachat.com/chat/login.html?room=For_the_Love_of_Eagles&width=600&height=400&lang=en


This should work for anyone to get in. I know its working on Windows 98...we have a regular chatter with that. you will need to upgrade your java though probably do that at someplace called something like Java.com.

OK time for me to eat. BBL

I am going to turn on the chat here but if you come in remember to stay for a while as it may take folks a while to spot you.

YES it is very possible to have the BLOG and chat windows open at the same time. But you will have to spend a little time to learn. Doing it when Chat is less busy is probably the best time to learn your way around chat. Also I believe the Chat transcript can all be copied to the BLOG if you are worried folks who just bLOG will miss out., No actually they will have 1 long post to read rather than sifting through lots of them. BUT I need participators to test my understanding of how this will work. Want to try that out today too.

If you want the link emailed to you directly send request to

1 eagle at BW Osprey nest

Anonymous said...

Didn't see Florida leave this time was getting Mocha coffee. Although she/he I think she just flew back in 9:43amEST. This has happended a couple of times this morning. Either an exchange of nesting or she just goes out to get maybe food from him/potty comes back.
I still believe there is at least one eaglet hatched. Just my opinion

Yes I am sure if your link doesn't have the For the love of Eagls you are going to lobby of para chat...You might nOT want to go there.

OK I tried it with and without those width and height measurements. Both took me right to For the love of eagles chat. Not the lobby.

I did see that other link in here one night but that was NOT the one I posted. it does ONLY get you to the lobby.

This link works and gets you to our chat. It is


http://chat.parachat.com/chat/login.html?room=For_the_Love_of_Eagles



So NO don't mess with the width and heith stuff on earlier post. You don't need that to get there. You do need the ending of For the Love of eagles though for sure!!!!

Thanks Mema Jo....makes the link shorter for everyone, and a little longer for those who just headed to the lobby. LOL

Just peeking in for a brief minute. Glad you're keeping track of the FL nest, Dana I think all of us Momsters are thinking the same as you are in that there is at least one little chick (maybe more) in the nest.
Wish an update would be made to confirm it - Going to be a long time before a chick is able to jump up from the bottom to the edge of that nest! lol See you later, Dana.

Hi Paula - I see you popped in from your busy day at work! Not much longer to go & you'll be going up the road! See you later.

Good Morning, Eagleland

The Maine cam was really pretty with the snow...thanks for the heads up Dana...you couldn't see that on the still cam...

Anonymous said...

You sure couldn't Paula.

It is starting to lightly snow again in Maine. 9:44amEST

Tai and Mei have had their normal morning rumps and follow the leader.

Been doing some other things but for me (maybe others) not too much action at BW.

Anonymous said...

Some of us were talking in comments about the white pine put in the BW eagle nest. Well I found this and sent it to Lisa:

http://www.fcps.k12.va.us/StratfordLandingES/Ecology/mpages/american_bald_eagle.htm
all one line of course where it said this:

Scientists think the reason eagles put sprigs of trees in their nests, is because the odor helps keep away parasites, such as blow flies. Eastern White Pine sprigs seem to be the eagles' top choice. Parasites could weaken, or even kill, a young eagle.

Anonymous said...

Morning Dana and Paula
Lisa also had other comments about reasons for the white pine on her updated Eagle Cam Web Log. There is an eagle on osprey platform.

Tai is sure giving Mei a hard time!

Paula what pic you going to use - it's missing

He looked pretty wet to me...had wings spread out...

Anonymous said...

Paula - you would think that if a chick was in FL nest we would see food being brought to the nest. I have no clue what the audubon was thinking by not having a camera angle down into that nest. It is just a guessing game.

Was this just a switch & I missed it?

Anonymous said...

Jo Florida had a cam to put higher put the tree broke off so they couldn't put it up there. At least that is what they had told us.

Anonymous said...

I'm glad they had good intentions. It's a shame it didn't work out.

Dana, Have you heard from Nilla??

Anonymous said...

Latest info on Florida from another forum....

I sent an email to Lynda White this morning asking about the eagles, the lake, and alligators. Here is her quick reply:

Hi, Judy,
I think we have an eaglet, but haven't seen any feeding. The adults have been changing places on the nest, and I have seen both in the past few days sitting on the nest.
The water is a small lake, and the birds fish there and some other nearby lakes. Alligators do prey on eagles, and we lose some every year when they are standing on the shore or in shallow water.
Lynda

Anonymous said...

Thanks, Paula. We are not going to know for sure until feedings start or a little fuzzy head happens to pop up

Anonymous said...

No Jo haven't heard from Nilla since last night. I think she was staying at daughters (if this isn't another senior moment in my memory).

Paula I love your seal...( :

Thanks for info on Florida

I'm watching on animal planet I watched a giraffe with another giraffe fight over a female. How do they do it?? They brace their legs and throws their long necks against each other over and over.

The lions are still around the water hole on Wavelit. When there is a kill, usually the vultures come - but I haven't seen any yet. Mits had found out that after a kill, the lions lay around for 2-3 days sleeping.

I am thinking and maybe one of you can tell me - the beaks of the male and female adults - are they a little bit different ??? Just trying to see if I could know if a switch had been made. We use to be able to call it right with Freida & Frodo... lol

Heading downstairs to play the new Zelda game with hubby. Have a great night everyone!

Well, Good night/Good morning to all you eagle lovers...

Have a good week, and maybe we will see some serious signs that they are getting ready for nesting this season.

Don't let the little, ole ice storm I was just reading about get you. I was going to mention how cold it was out here (although we never have enough clothes for cold weather in CA, and it seems colder), but after reading that, I guess I'll let it go.

Keep warm and safe,

Starting to get light in Maine, hear the wind and water rough right now. It is a beautiful silhouette of a black tree against the blue water. Can't tell if anyone in nest yet.
