GOOD MORNING EVERYONE, THANKS FOR THE THURSDAY THREAD, STEVEN.
GOOD A.M. EAGLE BUDDIES---GREAT TO see you MITS------I don't know which I want to hear about FIRST---The "Little Prince" or sunny beaches of FL----MISSED YOU!!!
Thank you Steven for the New Thread. Anyone coming in that wasn't on old thread YOU BETTER GO BACK AND READ IT FOR TODAY. BECAUSE YOU MISSED AN INTERESTING SET OF COMMENTS BY SUZANNE !!!!No I'm not telling you she took the time to type it all out play by play go read it lol kidding it is Gooddddddddddddddddddddddddd
Good morning Norma was on lurking on the other thread?
Light snow flurries in Maine. Maine is suppose to get snow again today.
Thanks for the new thread, Steven. Thanks for the heads up, Mits.Copied this over from other blog:Glad you liked the pics! She is a very patient eagle! Looks like she's standing there waiting for him to come back again. Guess he's sowing his oats now, cause I don't think it will be long before the nest is gonna have to be staffed 24/7, and he won't have time to play! Guess you had to be there...She's still sitting in nest! She's not going very far today, is she?
Oh my, miss manners is on vacation! Good morning all I haven't spoken to! Hope you all have a great eagle day.
Getting daylight in Kent. Cam1 is back in the branches. Neat view for us.
Snowing harder in Maine beautiful Belle is really sitting around the nest.Glo's guess is 18th (tonight), my guess is 19 (Fri. night) as to when Belle will stay in nest overnight. Anyone else want to guess. It's only a guess. But fun to see who gets it right.??????
Wonder if this will be Belle's first night in the nest..she sure is hanging out there this morning. Maybe she's too full to fly after breakfast.
Kent is staring to show see the nest has lost alot of the snow from in it. Still needs more light.Buta Buta has wiggled some but that is about it. Of course out of nest as soon as cam came on and she was laying on the concrete floor I think near fence area.
bbr going for cup of hot chol mocha coffee
Dana, I'm gonna guess tonight will be her first night in the nest. She ate like a little porker this morning, she may be storing up energy for sitting on an egg for a while till Liberty can bring her something to eat. We'll see what happens. Man, won't I be surprised if I come in in the morning and the nest is occupied! If it is, sure hope nobody else is here... they'll hear me yelling out at the guard desk!!!
Belle is just sitting there so nice. NORMA, FLA was great, and Tai was his usual wonderful cub.
Love the way Belle gets all fluffy.
My guess is it is still too early for eggs....IMHO
I bet you are right, Suzanne, because she ate the whole fish herself and I bet he was up above her in the tree during some of the time she was eating. OH, sorry, good morning everyone!
Good Morning Everyone! I am a "lurker" and have decided to come in and introduce myself. I am new to blogging - but from reading your blog over the last year, I knew this was the place to start. I am curious about the live feed, I only get the refreshing still picture, can anyone tell me how to access the live feed? I look forward to blogging with you all!
Hi eagles are awesome welcome. Glad you joined us. Will go get the direct link for you and post in a minute but . as you probably already know..live seems to have some battery issues, so doesn't always work for us yet this season. Hold on:
Live feed page http://www.fws.gov/nctc/cam/videoinstr.html
Welcome! on the front page of the blog there is a link to click on for the live feed, it says video feed info- just click on it.
Thanks Glo, seems like you are the queen of the blog! :>)
Good Mid Morning All Full house and a newcomer! Live feed is down right now but if you click at the top left of this page on NCTC Eagle Cam Daily and go to the home page. Upper right click on Live Video Feed and the link for the live cam on RealPlayer is there. Lot of speculation going on! Paula has sent out email 2 polls for us. Don't forget to vote on How Many Eggs and what date that 1st egg will be in the nest! FUN! I am running late this morning - Speakers blew and trying to put others on. Headed for a noon time appointment & will be back this afternoon.
I am the one who is stuck to this chair every moment I ge to watch these 3 eagles in particular, but we are all queens with a couple of kings thrown in LOL.
I guess I didn't realize what the email was about, Dana. I thought it was about the 30 second cam...guess I'll go read it again!
Hi ( : welcome eagles are awesome. Great name. I am so glad you came into the blog. This is a great place. Met some wonderful people here. And in real life too.Paula you could be right that's why we are just guessing a date.
Hey Paula, did you see the big article in yeaterday's Washington Post about the eagle at Blackwater? It was interesting.
Eagle in BW eagle nest both were there one flew out probably be back again.
I wish I could get my trash can back..and my pic. The article was in the style section, all about the amount of eagles who winter over at Blackwater. Really nice article. It was called the Bald and the Bountiful.
WELCOME, EAGLES ARE AWESOME. GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.
I got it all set up and am ready to watch this season's activity! It is nice to be welcomed into the blog, thank you all for your help. All little about me, I am a mid-lifer nursing school student. (Most of the people I go to school with are younger than my child!) But I have the life experience on my side, can't get that from a text book! I have been watching various eagle cams for the last 5 years or so, back in the day of that dreadful dial up - used to have a great one in Alaska - but this is awesome, never a dull moment with these creatures! Can't wait for the live feed! You gals (and guys) are very diverse and I look forward to hanging out with you all! I predict a smaller brood this year, they need a little break from all the hard work last year! Maybe just 1 or 2 young-uns!
Eagle at BW eagle nest
Megan, guess I will have to break down and read the WP article, not my favorite newspaper.
Welcome eagles are awesome. If you've been lurking, you know you're in for a good ride this season!Didn't get Paula's emails, will check yahoo mail.Eagle in eagle nest, BW.Kent is beautiful.
To be honest, don't read it like I used to, get a lot of my news from internet new sites. But hubby buys it avery day, and showed me the article yesterday, it was just inside the Style section.
Floral, My boss laid the article on my desk this morning! I haven't had a chance to read it yet....
This may also be the first night for the BW eagle to spend the night. I usually see one or both of them in the morning, then don't see them again by the time I leave. She's been in the nest frequently this morning, but she doesn't stay long. Got to check other mail, find out what's going on...
Mits, hope you had a great visit in Florida; hope Sharon is doing OK; and hoping Nilla will get some answers about her leg today. Some good news, I hope. Going off in search of my stolen pic. BBL
Paula, hubby never said a word, just laid the paper in front of me, and I started to complain that "I didn't want to read someone's interesting obituary or some political article right now"...and then I saw the eagle pic and grabbed the paper. He walked away laughing.
LOL...Megan, sounds like something I would do. My hubby is the same, if he finds something about eagles or pandas he passes it along..now that is true love.
FLORALGIRL & MITS----YES!---That is TRUE love----Is the article in today's paper?---I only get POST on Sun.---but if it's today's w/get one----
Norma saw your post on Daily Motion...that you found and watched yesterdays video. I am glad you got to see it. I don't think that happens very often. at least I hope for everyone sake that it doesn't.
I get the Post online, I have copied the article if anyone wants it. (Haven't read it yet, though.) Also copied the pics. Let me know.Did my voting on momsters!!MT nests all around...
Going to Momster site to check out poll to put mine in my vote on when 1st egg will lay and how many egg or eggs.
OK Paula and Dana I took the polls and cast my vote. I was thinking yesterday that Friday was the 18 , so on the poll I voted for Fri the 19th LOL. I think that pretty much covers teh 18th and 19th for me., WET NOODLE is under lock and key and Dexter is posted as guard. remember he does growl when he gets upset LOL
I would love the article Suzanne
On the way, Glo. The author sounds like he was thrilled!!! He's very excited.
WELCOME--WELCOME----EAGLES ARE AWESOME!!!---I love that name---Wish I had thought of it--ho!---We are looking forward to the new season & HAPPY you will be joining us----Hope it's as nice as last year----THREE---
SUZANNE----I would love the article too!
On the way to ya, Normabyrd.
SHARON----Isn't this the day she has the colon test?----Thinking of her----
Yup, today's the day for Sharon's colonoscopy. She should be finished by now, and either home sleeping, or on the way home... sleeping. If she gets on today, it probably won't be till later this evening.
FLORALGIRL---I hear you smiling---GREAT SOUND!!---SUZANNE sent me the "THE BALD & THE BEAUTIFUL" article------THANKS AGAIN--I went on-line to WASH. POST---Style Section--Pandas----They have THOUSANDS of pics of TAI--MEI---& other pandas--
No eagles, but all 3 nest are up and running in California....
Still snowing in MAINE---MT--BW---I didn't know that after the 1st night on the nest---there could be an egg----
Yup. Did you take the Momsters poll, Normabyrd? 2 Polls actually.
MT NEST--KENT---the cam has been moved on cam 1---(can't see the nest)
And where are my manners? Welcome, eagles are awesome :)They certainly are!!
SUZ---Yeah---I took both polls----WHAT DO WE WIN???????
Mits, Eagle at WE nest.
????? Satisfaction of being right? Or I should say, satisfaction of being a good guesser, since Mother Nature is gonna move at her own pace... LOL!
Suz, I put another poll up with earlier dates.
Oh, Norma, the Kent cam 1 now shows the branches where the eagles perch sometimes when they're not in the nest. Cool view, isn't it?
Buta Buta and Lun Lun playing nowI am re-looking at my guess of 1st day to stay in nest overnight Glo?????? I also polled but probably going back and repoll..
Time for me to hit the road. All have a great eagle day. Hopefully, that includes a lot of eagle watching. They must all be out to lunch now, all nests MT.Keep on posting...Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!
LOL Ok dana its OK cause Paula says we can change our minds each day until she closes the Poll... so shall I just say See you at the Poll And blogger is starting to give me a fit again will come in and out maybe, with or without my Elia
See you tomorrow SuzanneButa Buta is at the milk bar
Hi Ya Kidsssss...Not staying long had to get up and take Dawn to Hagerstown to have a jaw tooth pulled this morning.... Stopped and checked how things were down home... Right now i am in alot of pain but took a Vicodan and getting sleepy...Hope all went well with Sharons test this morning... Need to lay down.. Hugs to all.. Nilla
Hi Eagles are Awesome - and welcome! I was pretty much a lurker last year, but it's lots more fun to post !!!Suzanne, if you can I'd like a copy of the article too (and the photos please)Opps, hello to all, sorry about my manners., Mits, I would love to have caught up with you in FL - maybe next year? Didn't realize you were going to be in FT. Lauderdale, that is sooooo close to me. I'm off to go vote on when and how many, bbl
Missed it, Paula, they said because it is a solar-powered cam, it would mess up sometimes. because of fog and clouds. I love they way it is perched high above the water.
NILLA thought you were supposed to stay put.....doesn't Dawn have a hubby? I do not want you driving around til you hear from your Doctor.
Glo, Great video of the intruder. Looks like an immature eagle to me...did anyone else see white tail feathers on it?
Iris, sorry I missed you, where do you live down there? My friend homsteads, so she lives there from November til May, then comes back to her home in Fenwick Island Delaware
2 eagles BW Osprey,,,beautiful!!
Lunchtime at BW - anyone able to get FL up today...wanted to check in on Mom...
Good afternoon everybody. I was home by 9:30 a.m. and went straight to bed. Colonoscopy went well, didn't even know it was happening. It did not show anything that would cause the liver abscess so I don't know what the next step will be in finding the origin of it. More will definitely be revealed. A great big welcome to "Eagles are Awesome". Glad you joined us. This is a really awesome bunch of people on here.
Lun Lun was just dragging Buta Buta around by her hind leg, still is. She was just going back and forth. Now Buta wants to play I think. Oh no, now she is dragging her by her ear!
Lun Lun looked like she was practicing her acrobatics on the big limb in the hallway!
Now Buta is checking out the limb.
So glad to see Sharon and Nilla both came in. Hope you both soon get to feeling much better though.
Looks like a tree limb in Butas' den.
Lun Lun was just standing on her head !!!
Well my vote for the Inruder video yesterday is an immature eagle too. It was large enough that I feel good if its one of our young from last year as ti is probably thriving well!!!Good to see Sharon and Nilla on here. Nilla you best be listening to Thelma ...she sounds serious!!!
OK, I've voted and how did it get to be lunchtime already? Way past as a matter of fact!And, hubby isn't even complaining...yet. Better go do that before he does. Checked in on "the little Prince" he was so busy eating bamboo. He is so cute to watch though.
Lun-Lun was just climbing the fence, maybe she needs some time out from Buta.
Hi Again! Back from appointment & ready to do some guess work on the polls. It was good to hear from Delphia & must go over & see new pics in her album.Hey there, Norma Maybe you could win a "Night at the Nest" for your prize. lolI did hear from Sharon & she did wonderfully well with the test & she said nothing found! She was so 'up' about her report. Didn't mean to take the good news from her reporting it but I know how much we all are concerned! I don't think she'll get the wet noodle after me!
Gone for now I think it was Liberty
I see a new educational toy in the den for ButaButa... LunLun couldn't figure how to get on the other side of it to get to ButaButa awhile ago. Now I see our Little Princess sound asleep under it. Hopefully she will learn the basics of tree climbing.
Sharon, glad your procedure went well and you are home again. Hope Nilla is resting, slow down woman til you find out what is wrong. I can't watch the video nest intruder:( but when I went to the nest the other day, I am quite sure it was a juvenile sitting in a tree near the nest. And one of the adults was sitting directly above the nest. It is their first winter so they are not expert hunters and cold here now and they are probably trying to see if they can get any food from parents.
I don't know if poor Buta Buta has that pole figured out or not. Maybe she feels trapped.
Glo remember you and me were guessing the first night Belle would spend in nest. Well after reviewing things I am guessing between you and me and the tree stump lol and anyone else that wants to play. Night in nest Feb.10th a Saturday I also have did both of the polls.
READING the BW article----WOW---STEVE HENDRIX writes well--
Which came first----BUTA or the LOG?----
SHARON---So glad your test went well!!!!!!
both in nest now!!!
Paula - what you going to do with your 100 lbs of wax? lol
Both in the nest!!! This is my first sighting today. They sure are beautiful.Both glad for your test results and sorry that you will now have to go through some more tests Sharon. As you say, more will be revealed.Prayers going up for all who need them (and maybe even for those that think they don't).
EAGLE ALERT OUR NEST 2:09PM est
Belle's out of there. Something seemed to be distracting her!Sure wish the live feed was up!!
Would someone send me the BW article in Washington Post? Thank you.
lIB JUST LEFT ALSO...
Wow Dana That is quite a change. Now didn't someone say that after the copulation there is like 5 to 7 days til the eggs. man I could have sworn thet copulation cop was actually hanging out in the nest last week OK well time will tell lOL
Mits, we are usually in FL from Nov to May also. Then we go back to Red Lion, PA, near York for the summer. We are in Boca Raton, just north of Deerfield and just about 25 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale Airport. For some reason, I thought you were going to Orlando or I would have mentioned it before you left. Maybe we will get to meet in WV in May when Vicky and Glo come for their visit??? It would be so much fun to meet you all.
Yes Glo that is quite a change. I know they did the deed but I'm looking back at last season. I don't know if she could handle this hard weather with egg or eggs.Well we'll certainly see won't we.I'm just really praying and hope everyone else does that they get the "live feed up and running". We really need it.
Florida nest is up...Mom still incubating the eggs. Poor eagle. I know that we are watching "Mother Nature in the Raw", but I still feel sorry for this eagle couple.
YES dana that is a good point. It woul dbe pretty hard to be sitting in the nest in mid winter.
Checkiing out the weather on weather channel tv. California had some snow. Wonder what part Jim lives in. Hey Jim did you get snow???Wondering when we will get our hit tonight tomorrow??????
Iris, my friend is about 15 mins. from Ft. Lauderdale airport, it is so easy coming and going at that airport, makes traveling there a piece of cake.
Yep Florida right now is way too much like Hornsby last year. I haven't loaded it again. I can't watch that...too sad. Too many sounds still echo in my ears from Hornsby pair .
PAULA, FLORIDA NEST IS BACK UP AND MOM IS SITTING THERE.
Yes Paula for some reason I just can't bring myself to keep watching her. Hopefully someone will comment that they have mated again. With a new start...How long would they sit on infertile eggs?????????????? The poor dear sniffle sniffle
Tai is trying to nurse....and Mei is not letting him.
I tried to post when there was an eagle a while ago in Maine. Blogger gave me all kinds of problems. Wouldn't even refresh.
Buta Buta has an itch & doing pretty darn good at scratching it for being under the log! lol
Wouldn't it be great (but impossible?) to place a fertile egg under our FL 'wanta be mom'! They do that other at other nests, you know.
Camera zoomed in on ButaButa
Dana, from what I understand, she will sit on the eggs until they break.Eagle still at BW Osprey cam.Going to another office, talk to everyone later this evening.
Hang on Buta gal... Slippy floor. That gave me a good laugh.
Buta loves her new toy.
Dived right over the limb.........
Mits Aren't her actions hilarious! I think she is wondering what she is to do with it!
BUTA is playing with the BIG LOG---She is ADORABLE---Always chewing on her paw---
Jo, think she is also using it as a giant teething ring.
Hello, all. What a fright! I thought buta buta had been crushed by that branch, but now I see that it's a new toy and she loves it. I have meetings all day today and it's so restful to watch her in between.
Wish we had sound on her because I think I am seeing some vocalizatons..
Oh Sandra! She was lying so still there for awhile - That is probably when you tuned in....
I guess her play time zonked her out!LunLun is certainly getting a long break..
Thanks for the article Norma.
Yes Mema Jo it would be nice if they would let her just be a "foster Mom" the eaglet would never know. It would stop her from going through all this..I don't think writing to Florida is any help. They only answer when and whom they want.
BUTA climbed over the log---SHE'S COOL-----
Norma ButaButa ROLLED over the log LOL She is one adorable little princess & she is making me tired from just watching all her movements! This is the 2nd time LunLun has been there when Buta is on the other side of the log & I think it confuses her as to how to get her little girl.So ButaButa solved her concern & just walked right out to her mom.
Well, company for dinner (Family)I'll return later - Hope to hear from NILLA ! BBL
Buta is nursing now.
Never mind Lun left and Buta is going after her, she was not finished.
Buta was just trying to climb up on something and Lun just knocked her down.
hee hee Mits she is so adoraable
Oh my heavens just seen on CNN. Pepsi nor Aquia water doesn't have anything to do with it.There are hidden compartments in the bottles. Selling in Miami for $20.00 to $35.00 a bottle. 1pt.9ozCan't seen any difference if you turn bottle upside down even clean water. Man on CNN put his pager in the compartment in the water bottle. Couldn't see it. Using these bottle for drugs. Just twist the top of bottle and it's a little pepsi or water.
EAGLE ALERT OUR NEST
grrrrrr I tried to alert for the eagle in our nest was in and later left before this stupid blogger would print it. Then have to go in and re-register in Yahoo. grrrrrrr
Buta Buta is in a jail of bamboo lol
LOL not an allergy or anything like that though LOL just an alert!!!
Lun Lun is nursing Buta Buta
aaaarrrrchew I mean Ditto eagle our nest
bbl got to start dinner
I keep missing them.
Eagle at BW/osprey
Looks like Liberty
Both are there..............
Think Belle brought dinner.
Belle just came into nest both there
Hey who is suppose to be supplying these meals???? Well I guess she is doing is now because she knows later she'll be on the eggs. Then Liberty will be providing the meals.
Eagle gone at BW.
Belle just left.
BW eagle nest one in there
Lib just left.
Eagles all gone BW and Our nest for now
Eagle at west end nest in Calif.

Good evening, my friends of fine feathers! That was a great picture Mits. Thanks.
Well, you are very welcome...Sharon
Ms. Sharon, you have mail...........
Has anyone else's Comment box dropped to the bottom of the already posted comments by others on the thread? Mine has been in a different spot all day today.
Just checked in from work...about to leave...and yes, Glo, the comment box is at the very bottom.Kind of nice being able to read the comments immediately before as you write.Jim
yes Jim That part is nice but I notice my Elia . is missing again.
Well, my comments box is still at the top, but my picture has been missing for days.
Has anyone heard from nilla?
Good evening all. I hope everybody has had a wonderful evening.
This pic is my Mattie Jane!
My comment box is at the top and my picture is...still here :)
What a beautiful young lady, Sharon.
I haven't heard from Nilla but would sure love to!
Thank you Paula. Mattie says thanks too!
Your welcome, Mattie :):)
I don't know if this was previously reported on here but Lisa at BW updated the eagle web log today with some really interesting info on eagles.
MATTIE JANE, YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG LADY!!! My comment box is still at top and my pic is still here, I think.
Now there's a beautiful young lady!
Well I have been locked out by GOOGLE but since I spread the word by email I am now back in after about an hour of trying. Wouldn't even leave me in the CHAT ROOM Mattie Jane - Welcome I think I can actually see a very young Sharon in looking at you. Such a beautiful picture.Have not heard from Nilla - Had called her last night - but from her morning comment I feel I should wait until tomorrow to call. I really hope the DR called her with some info. I am hoping my Sycamore is still here I think that a USER NAME should not be so lengthly - it knocks at the pic and drops down into the comment. IMHO
HELLO VICKY Hope things at work had slowed down a bit for you! Glad to see that warm fire going. It sure has gotten cold here in MD
Hi Mema Jo!
pretty cold here also, did get to 36 today
Thanks, Sharon for the heads up on Lisa's update at BW. Wasn't that pic of the eagle couple at night on the osprey nest haunting? Lisa always gives the best links on her web log.
Andrew goes to Virginia Tech for the VPI Honor Band this weekend. The concert is Sunday at 1 p.m. He has to go tomorrow and Saturday for auditions and rehearsals! Love that kid!
It is 37° in Bluefield and we are supposed to have a little snow tomorrow.
I can't get into the chat. Tried and tried last night and there is something screwed up on my computer with the Java thing. I think it has to do with the new Internet Explorer. Seems like I had that problem when I tried to use the new IE before. Aggravating!
Yes, Sharon thanks for the heads up on the BW site, really interesting. GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE, PRAYERS FOR ALL WHO ARE IN NEED.
Sharon I did just email you my direct link into the chat room. It could be your JAVA needs updated.I still love my Mozilla Firefox the mostest.
Good Night Mits
Sharon, Sure hope Mattie is ready to type that special word as soon as I publlish this one.......
WEll Good night all. Good night Elia wherever you are. Actually honey I know exactly where you are.Blog at ya tomorrow. Hoping ofr sunshine and live cam too.

Apologies for my neglect on this site. I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
