Tuesday 16 Jan

New thread.

We are continuing to troubleshoot our technical problem,s. Looks like it's the battery (we've ordered another one) or the voltage regulator (may need a new one. Stay tuned.


Saw one of the eagles perched down at our boat ramp Friday afternoon.

Yep we do have to remember troubles comes along with life. Never have to look for a problem they just come. Ain't that just a peach.

Sorry Nilla about Patches. Surely you all know you did the very BEST for Patches.

Thanks for the new thread - I was hoping there would be one when I returned from Dr. Sorry Steve that you had to stutter to get that thread up & running. Don't feel badly - we do it all the time.

Looks as though Atlanta has started giving ButaButa some educational toys. Soon she will graduate to a 'crate with honey'.

Nilla - Sorry about Patches. Hubby & I have been giving antibiotic to Scar for an infection in his foot - & that is a chore! Takes both of us!

Is it just me, or do FL eagles seem quiet today?

Tarzan Tai is hanging out in the tree

ButaButa - Whoa! She made it! Up over the door block & then Boom! down onto the floor. Now she seems to want to go right back where she was...

Hi All, back from church - had a great lunch and speaker..Thankfully we have a new thread - Thank you Steve.

I just found the Smithsonian article on the Panda Cam. You all probably know about it, but if you haven't read it yet, it is a great article.
http://www.smithsonianmagazine.com/issues/2006/june/taishan.php

Sorry to hear of new troubles including the battery to keep the cam up and running. Sorry to hear about Patches and also the Van problems. Wow, we do still need to keep the prayers coming don't we!

How did work go today Sharon?
Hugs and Prayers,

4:56pmEST eagle just flew back into Florida nest

Anonymous said...

We know we haven't gotten much when we have written to Florida. Again I have tried by asking since you can't see down into the nest. If they can pull the camera back some so we can see the nest. That way we can see if the other eagle is showing up on the edge of the nest. Just thought no harm in asking Ms. White. So we will see...

Nilla said...

Man they are not a minute over 5pm shutting Buta Buta's cam off... Geeeshhh must be on a timer... She is really getting those lil feet going and moving all over now days... As the cam went off she was asleep..

Lisa at BW put some new shots & Info on the Eagle Cam nest update.

Sad news now on the Tesoro site :(:(


1/16/07 The eagles began incubating December 7th, which meant an anticipated hatch date around January 9th. Unfortunately, the eggs have not hatched, meaning they were probably infertile. It is early in the season, so it is possible they may reclutch and try again.

Anonymous said...

Ours took 36-38 days last year. If they started on Dec 7, that would make today day 40 for the first egg. If they started on Dec 8 or 9, which is what they first said on their site, that would make today day 38 or 39 for a first egg. It could be less days for a later egg.

They said that theirs usually takes around 32 days....I guess the overall warmer temps or maybe the fact that these are "southern" bald eagles has something to do with the shorter incubation period.

Anonymous said...

Well, I guess the puzzle has been solved. Paula, you may wish to place info on Momsters to be sure everyone knows. That is Sad!

Anonymous said...

Well that sounds like no "Hidden" and no "Peek-a-poo"...nature is one thing we have to endure.

Good Luck eagles for later in Florida.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good evening everybody. Just talked to Mits. She is at the Ft. Lauderdale airport fixing to come home! YEAH!

Maybe NCTC needs to invest in supercharged, extra long-lasting, Energizer bunny battery!

I am feeling some better today. Really looking forward to the prep tomorrow for Thursday's colonoscopy! HA! :(:(:(

Hope everybody is well this evening! Be back around 9!

Yahoo! Mits is coming home!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Nilla, my thoughts are with your sister. How devastating to lose 2 in 2 days. I so love my babies and have lost a few too. It hurts really bad when that happens.

Finally back at home with my computer. Internet is working fine now. Comcast came through for me this time!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I so enjoyed watching Buta Buta today. She is such a little princess!

Now That is what I call a

Good Picture

Anonymous said...

When I was watching Buta Buta and LunLun today - there was some 'fight play'. I actually saw her bite at her
mom's ear.

As for Tai today... He was riding piggy back on his mom and she was going at a pretty good speed. Of course he tumbled off!!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I saw on Comcast's "The Fan" today that there is a panda in China that they are having to put on a diet because he is to heavy to be amorous! They are going to just feed him bamboo leaves and not the chutes! Poor feller can't have the best of both worlds I guess! :):):)

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Thanks Mema Jo. That picture was taking at the last ballgame I was able to attend this year the weekend before I got sick. I was feeling pretty good there, but boy did things change fast!

Anonymous said...

I wonder just how much he weighs and how old he is. I guess Tai is 89 lbs. but he exercises his weight off. He does love his bamboo - stalks and leaves.

It's funny when you see him slouched over a tree branch sleeping.

Sharon, there's some video of ButaButa's debut on that ajc.com site you may want to see.

Suzanne said...

Good morning, eagle world. Lots of stars out tonight at my place, but no stars here, cloudy. Cold too, 21° at home, 20 something here, but didn't really look. But the wind is a'whippin' it's cold out there.

Geesh, been here for an hour. We open the office at 4, but the guy that opens was in an accident Sunday, so I've been doing it this week so far, just can't seem to get here at 4. Made it this morning at quarter after, not sure I can get here any earlier. But things to do to open, then lots of folks here now, and things to go over, etc. Everybody wants to work, can't imagine where they got that idea!

Oh well, may try to read the blogs if I have time. All have a great eagle day.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

Did read the blogs, not as many as usual. Nilla, so sorry to hear about Patches and Annie! Tares you up when you lose a pet, sounds like they were well loved!

Welcome back, Mits. You have to work at the zoo today, don't you?

Paula, are you talking about the FL eagles on the cam? What a shame! Did they say is this a young pair, and is it their first year attempting to have eggs? I'm hoping that DOESN'T happen to the young pair at the BW eagle cam. So sad.

Sharon, good luck today with your colonoscopy. If it's today, the worst part is now over... that was yesterday and last night!

Nilla, good luck with your test today also!

Guess we're waiting for a battery, so no cam again today. Bummer!!

Anonymous said...

Good morning, Suzanne. Oh, I don't envy you- 4 am? What time did you leave your house? I could barely drag my butt out of bed this morning at 6. 16° here, cold and windy. Guess winter is back for a while.

Suzanne said...

Morning, Megan. Yeah, it's rough, I left my house this morning at 2:26. Later than I wanted, but can't get the mind to register the time.. Got up early, (quarter to 1 am), so when I was looking at the clock, I saw I had all this time before I had to leave. DUH. Then it dawned on me that I had to be here early! Who can think at that hour! I know what I'm usually doing at what time, and moving the time up is not working yet. Maybe by Friday, just in time for the weekend to forget it all again! How you doing this morning?

Anonymous said...

Boy, you will sleep this weekend!! I am about the same as yesterday, my life is a mess!! Went to the mailbox and got a letter from our Drs. office telling us in 2 weeks they will no longer accept our insurance, have had the same Dr. since I was 19, don't want to find a new one. Probably drop coverage for me(too expensive) and just keep hubby and daughter covered, so I will become a statistic politicians love to talk about, but do very little to fix: the uninsured.

Suzanne said...

Oh good grief! Somebody said yesterday that when it rains, it pours, and that's surely the case now! Did they say why they were dropping the insurance? I probably wouldn't want to change doctors after that amount of time either! You're used to him, he knows you and your family, brother, what a pain! Always something..

Suzanne said...

Eagle, osprey.

Anonymous said...

When it rains it pours... there must be a flash flood outsides my door right now then...LOL .Our DRs. office says they are unable to negotiate a new contract with BCBS, so they will no longer be able to accept their insurance. Gotta get off of here, before my bad mood spreads to others, gotta go to the library, need to get a book on applying for grants, need to apply for one for my business, if I can figure out how to do it.

Suzanne said...

Might also want to try the Small Business Administration. Probably can do that online. Guessing it would be dot gov, see what Uncle Sam can do for you! Heaven knows, you pay him enough! See what kind of government grants you can get!

Good Morning all. Off to coffee and dog treats. It is a balmy 0 here this morning but at least I don't have to shovel snow first. since neither of the cams I enjoy are gonna be watched today, I have lots of projects to do, so will be back in later this pm or evening. Wishing you a good day. Sharon Buta Buta will be here for you. Reard yourself for 5 mins after every 4 oz or something. Might help...HUGS.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning, Suzanne. Today is the worst part and tomorrow is the colonoscopy. UUGGGHHH! I just had my light breakfast, 2 boiled eggs. It is all clear liquids from here but thank God that tea is included in clear liquids. Can't drink coffee because I can't have milk or nondairy creamer. I am going to attempt to work again today so I will be checking in!

I would love to see what Liberty and Belle are up to these days!

Suzanne said...

Morning, Glo. Morning, Sharon. Sorry, I've got you a day ahead. Yup, today is the worst, that stuff tasts terrible! And not eating is a little rough too, least it was for me. Don't try to do too much. Does it bother you sitting for a long time at the computer?

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Don't know about the sitting for a long time at the computer. I was up and down yesterday and didn't get much done. Hard to keep my mind focused on what I am supposed to be doing!

Suzanne said...

Yeah Sharon, hard to think when you're in pain! Take it easy. Hopefully they'll find out what the problem is, and they can get it fixed! Without major surgery for you!!

Hi and Hugs to all,
Back from church and can't get the live cam to come up. Anyone else with that problem?

The refreshing cam is there and there seems to be a lot of traffic in and out of the nest 2:30 to 3:15p.m. Sure wish I could see it live.
