BlackWater site Lisa on the Osprey site answers Suzanne's 'black dot' question with a picture. She has also started the Eagle Web Log Page.
Checked all the eagle cams - MT Nests
New mat in front of ButaButa's nest bed - LunLun had used them for play when they first put them down. Good Little Prince is up in the tree.

Dropped in to say hi

Thank you Steve for the New Thread.

I'll check out some cams now
still under the weather here still taking doctors meds for this.

Mema Jo when I visited Lisa's page on BW she really has done it again hasn't she. It was funny though when I clicked in there on the Conn. cam the live cam came up and my "oscar the seagull" was in there moving around lol at 11:40amEST. lol

Good Morning Steve, MemaJo, Paula and Dana. Thank you Steve for the new thread and I hope you had a fun time in CT.

The FL nest is on a real close-up. Whoever is sitting on the eggs seems pretty busy/alert yesterday and today.

Haven't checked the rest of the cams yet. Been attacking my closet! What a mess.

Dana, hope you are feeling better soon. Hubby is still running a bit of a temp and hacking away.

Back to my closet!!!!Arrrggggghhhh

Belle_WV said...

Iris I know what you mean about the closet - I'm stymied by mine - just have to start donating a bunch of stuff and giving up on 'fitting' into the things I love but can't get into - then I'll lose the weight and get to go shopping??? Win win, but I can't get rid of things - pack rat is in my family big time

Buta is nursing - so adorable - can't see the mat because the cam is focused on mom and babe inside the nest box - hope this mat does the 'trick' for Buta and with a full tummy and some rest/digest time she'll be charged and ready to race in something besides circles in the nest box

The cartwheeling was incredible - what a sight that must've been for that guy - seeing them crash to the ground - I think I'd have had a heart attack! That would've been awful to watch! Lisa does a great job of things for sure - Jo thanks for pointing us toward it

Nilla I liked the new pic :) Paula I like your bunny too :) Dana hope you're feeling better soon, and Mits, too. Sharon, how're you doing?

Oh Buta's on the prowl....

Just peeking in - Buta Buta
If you can, check her out.

Hi Belle
Suppose to be dedecorating but can't resist looking in as I pass my computer.
Iris Are you out of the closet yet?

Talked with Mits earlier - Going to Dr hoping for a miracle drug!

Belle_WV said...

I went to fix sandwiches for hubby and me, and now buta's cam is blank - what happened?
Mits I hope they can give you something - for anyone else who comes down with the flu - get to the dr's within the first 48 hrs of symptoms and they can give you something that will help the most...

Belle_WV said...

My dedecorating won't happen until after this weekend - gotta wailt til after Epiphany... besides any thing I can do to have the lights and pretties longer works for me :)

Belle_WV said...

awww Buta pic is back - she's so cute!

Anonymous said...

Well I was watching. Mom had come back around so they took out the dark mat in front of nest bed. Then Mom left and Buta Buta worked so hard to follow her. I telling you I thought several times ok leg out head out just pull. Can't push with back legs they slid all over the place. Then Mom comes back for nursing in a lay down rest position. Cam went black.....checked later Buta Buta is out on concert. I know she didn't get out...either Mom drug her out or they put her out there.
Buta Buta is just laying there. Don't see Mom anywhere.

They said they weren't doing anymore checks on Buta Buta. I bet they are doing things with Lun Lun. That is why Buta Buta is laying out there. Believe me she can't pick her butt up to get on her hind legs lol.....she will one day though.

Anonymous said...

Dana I think they meant they were not bringing ButaButa into the examing room - No more videos of exams - they were going to do her check ups wherever she happened to be in the den.

Anonymous said...

LunLun came back & is holding her big baby ButaButa. I think it is just bath time as she just nursed awhile ago.

We still have an MT nest
Mt Nest BW
Mt Nest Kent (I wish someone would sight those 2-I haven't even seen George)
Mt Nest Me
FL NEST - Cam down (I wish Lynda White would give more frequent updates.
Back to the pandas
Can't see Mei or Tai on and of the DC cams.
Back to the Cleaning of Buta Buta

Someone is on the outside of the fence to the left. He/she is giving something to Lun Lun and Buta Buta is trying hard to move closer to Lun Lun. Lun Lun is almost standing up with paw outside the fence.
The person or persons must be moving cause Lun Lun moves. Then Buta Buta sticks her nose to the fence. She did get front paws and back to stand for a second on all four then flop.

Anonymous said...

I can't figure out just where LunLun and Buta Buta are sitting. LunLun is in and out, in and out. ButaButa is right alongside Momma and doing the same things LunLun is doing.

Anonymous said...

Buta Buta is all alone been for a while. She is really working at trying to get on all 4's.
A couple of times she does it then flop again. She is a fighter ( :

I guess Mits got to watch all of this trying to walk with Tai.

Incrediable really...never thought I would be seeing a baby panda trying to walk.

I am getting excited thinking that in about 3 months we'll be looking at little fuzz balls in that nest!

IrisF said...

Yes Belle, I'm still in the closet, it may get the best of me! It is so hard to part with clothing. Must be the Scot in me or something. I always think - I will use this one of these days.

At the moment, I have 3 big bags full. Now, just so I don't go back and look at them. Gotta get rid of them QUICK!

Trying to get hubby to take meds is a losing battle. I make chicken noodle soup, and keep the fluids coming. About all I can do. I increased my Vit. C, I wish he would too.

Watching our eagle in nest....

LunLun did leave room - but ButaButa is still sleeping soundly.

IrisF said...

Dedecorating - I like that word. If possible, I'd leave my decorations up until February. I just love the house with all the Christmas decorations. It always seems so blah when they go back in the boxes.

Have to help dismantle the trees at church tomorrow and put the trimmings away. That will be enough dedecorating for this week. (grin)

Anonymous said...

Buta Buta does NOT want in that nest bed. She gets her head out over the 2x4, but I think Pandas think they can roll to wherever they want to go. Her paws are on the 2x4 now - sitting up - Body is half way out - But then all those efforts collapse and she is back in the nest bed.

Come On Buta Buta YOU CAN DO IT

WOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Buta Buta walked half way out of that
Nest Bed. Then her tailend got Stuck and she tried & tried to get it over! Well 'Along Came Mom' - saw her daughter's predicament and gently pulled her out over the 2x4!

I wish all of you could have been watching! Especially I wish Glo would have been able to catch that one on video. I'm sure there will be many more moments to treasure!

Anonymous said...

LunLun had once again brought her back to the nest bed. Just now, LunLun came in & picked up (by the neck skin) ButaButa & did a 360 degree swing around & out of camera range they went - into the large den I think.

OK I have monopolized this blog for all afternoon it seems. I must get some more done in my home..BBL

Belle_WV said...

No WORK!@ NO NO NO LOL I wonder what Lun was up to with little buta bun... she finally has settled down with her in the birthing box - I guess she couldn't find a place to get comfy... seems hard to imagine that one of those is more cozy than another, but I guess there is a difference. Buta doesn't want to be held it seems...

Oh here i set again with tears of joy for Buta Buta ... Me and Rosa watched her walk today then i saw it on GloBugs site so these are tears of joy... Now for tears of sadness, just got phone call that my parents are putting Patches to sleep, as she came home friday and i know had not eat only drank water... I am so glad to went back in bedroom and petted her before leaving last night... tears... Losing my own cat i had for 16 years i know how hard it is, but my Tinker is waiting for me.. smiles

Well Vicky maybe Patches and your Bo Bo is in pet heaven playing together with my Tinker to.. BBL

Tears of Joy and tears of Sadness! Yikes, what a day, 'nilla.

That video was great Glo. What a cutie he is!

Belle_WV said...

Aww Nilla so sorry that Patches is gone from this earth... very good that you got to say good-bye to her last night - sounds like she was ready to go, so she's at peace. {{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}

All is quiet with Mei n Tai sleeping.. he is up in the corner she fell asleep over at the door after someone pitched some goodies into h her..

Belle_WV said...

They posted a note about Mei Lan - she's been nursing more - all that hard work of learning to walk - she's got to eat lots to keep her strength up! She's adorable... I think that Mei Lan and Tai Shan should be kept here and 'married off' in a few more years :) What a perfect couple they'd make

Hello again, Sylvester!

Dinner time for Jo BBL

Nilla said...

Belle i agree with you about Tai n Mei being a couple..lol There is a panda born about amonth(August 2,2005) after Tai out in San Diego Zoo (Su Lin)but from what i have heard they are related and cant mate... So Buta Buta is the best choice right?

Nilla said...

I am watching the pandas on cam out there now and she is with her mother on camhttp://www.sandiegozoo.org/zoo/ex_panda_station.html

Ho Ho! I had the San Diego Zoo up & watched and watched the Panda Cam. All I could see were the trees - Little did I know the panda was in them. Glad I read your comments Nilla.
I didn't have any apes in view & the elephant cam didn't come up for me. The old polar bear was walking around. Cam didn't follow him....

Nilla said...

Isnt that something great pictures ... Jo did you see the pics of the Eygptian gooses (geese) I d miss George N Gracie from Petes Pond cam even thou they were noisy quackers..lol

Belle_WV said...

Yep I saw the lil one bounding around way up in the tree - at least I assume it was her, so far away I couldn't tell for sure what it was, but the odds are it was her, since I don't think they have any other animals in there... I can't believe how high they climb

Nilla said...

Great Jo now to see which pandas they are on cam look at the list there with the C and number tells you who it is... Click on panda pictures also for a short bio about them ... Oh Jo those apes just swing from rope to rope... and the polar bears play and you can see them swimmin and playing..

Nilla said...

They do have many cams to watch but the down side is they are stationary and dont move to follow the animals... but when the animals are in view usually a good show... Belle i dont think they are out right now but check out the little Golden Tamarin Lion Monkeys at Washington zoo... they are adorable and carry the lil babies on their backs...

ssosbourn said...

I can't believe how high up in that huge tree Su Lin went. Are the trees in DC that big? Thanks, Nilla, for reminding me about the San Diego pandas. I'm so sorry about all the pet losses. That's why I don't have any pets now--it hurts too much to lose them. Though we know they're waiting for us.

Belle_WV said...

Hmmmm I don't want to post - waiting for a lurker who needs wax to wander in and grab 100...

The pandas in SD are very pretty - but I will keep our Tai Shan and Mei Lan and Mai and Lun too :) oh heck and the guys can stick around too- though we don't get to see them much

Going to count to 100 then send - hopefully someone else will have posted so I don't have to forward the wax to anyone...

Belle_WV said...

Phew I didn't get the wax Thanks Jo for claiming it :) Did you talk to Sharon? I am going to have to get one of those unlimited long distance packages on my phone so I can call folks without using a calling card (cheapest way we've found for us to do long distance)

Nilla said...

Belle do you have Sprint cell phone ? I can call Dana which is local for me and family we all have it... After 7 pm long distanse is free...

Anonymous said...

Yes, Belle, I did. I was also hitting refresh like Nilla & holding my breath like you - waiting for Sharon! Then I remembered she had told me she was going out 7-9. My memory is getting very short these days!! She will probably be on later.

I do have the verizon Freedom pkg. I love it for friends and for family..Mostly all are out of the area code or calling distance. It feels so good that I can pick up the phone & call anywhere anytime. It is well worth having.

Nilla said...

Speaking of Dana wonder where she is?? Hope she is feeling better also

Belle_WV said...

I have a virgin mobile cell - pay as you go - I never used all the minutes they gave me in the package deals with us cellular, so it seemed like such a waste - I pay about 5 bucks a month for my cell phone (have to put 15 bucks on every 90 days) and still have money rolling into the next 3 month plan. Don't use it for long distance or anything ... I think I will get the freedom package - figured it out and it would cost about 2 or 3 bucks more a month, but just knowing I could call anyone would be nice and might actually use it more to keep in touch with people...

Belle_WV said...

LOL GMTA - I was just wondering where Dana was and hoping she wasn't feeling too bad - she said (last I recall) that she was going for a nap

Nilla said...

Jo did you put up your sticky note for the animal planet show like i said ????? lol I will be here but watching DATELINE i love that show...

ssosbourn said...

It's getting dark in SD and Su Lin is still up in the tree. She looks like a soulmate for Tai. Very adventurous.

Belle_WV said...

I don't know how they can sleep so soundly in the trees or on ledges! I guess they don't have the urge to roll around in their sleep like I do - I worry about fallin out of bed!

That was a 3:00 nap Dana was taking. She was on a good bit throughout the morning. She'll probably be back this evening.

Well Nilla, guess I'm not the only one shedding tears! Just a big ole hole in my heart if you know what I mean!

Belle_WV said...

{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}} Vicky - we all know about that hole in our hearts... they're worth every bit of the pain though - they joy and comfort and laughter they bring, not to mention the unconditional love (well it is occasionally conditioned on the emptiness of the food bowl or length of owner absence on a given day...) but they never judge us or give us anything but love

Hagerstown News: Polar Bear Plunge in Potomac River in Williamsport...
All of the proceeds will go to the horses seized last month from a Sharpsburg farm owner accused of animal neglect. Event was started back in 2004 and has quickly become one of the Washington County Humane Society's most successful fundraisers.It averaged for the past few years about $3,000 to $5,000.

That's a good cause - poor horse - they're such noble and patient creatures... anyone who neglects them should be horse-whipped and left to live on nearly no food, too!

I trust all are enjoying the New Year so far...

I went back to work after taking the week off, and it just about killed me. But I should get used to it again fairly quickly.

I'm still wondering at how I managed to surf the Internet for so long without this broadband connection. Great stuff....

I haven't seen many birds on or near their nests lately, have you?? I did see the male eagle on the BW platform yesterday.

When are this pair due to lay their eggs again? Was it in February?
It should be interesting seeing the process from the start. Last year I think they were freshly hatched before I was sent the link.

Take care, keep warm, enjoy,

Good evening everyone. Just heard from Mits. Doc put her on an antibiotic so hopefully she will feel much better soon.

I am going to attempt to start working again this weekend, just 4 hours a day. I think it will help me get my mind off my troubles. Just hope the pain doesn't get too bad from sitting in the computer chair. Haven't sat in it for about 3 weeks. More will be revealed. God will be with me to help me though, I am certain of that.

Good evening Jim. Glad you are enjoying your broadband. Can't imagine using dial-up anymore. I don't have enough patience for that!

I am thinking BW will be around the same time as ours, in February. I did see Liberty and Belle in the nest this evening. Beautiful sight for sure.

Belle_WV said...

Hi Jim and Sharon!

Hi speed is hte only way to go - thank goodness I have it - lots of folks here can't get it, but we happen to be in line of sight of the tower for the signal - I can't imagine dial up - so glad you have the 'fast track' now Jim :)

Sharon, don't overdo - you're body needs rest to heal, too - but I totally understand needing to workl for many reasons - just take it easy when you're not working and cut back if you start feeling bad - Dr. Belle's orders :) So good to see you on here again

Belle_WV said...

I'm looking forward to the 'egg watch' again I jumped in watching before the first egg arrived - it was so exciting. I am going to MAKE time to watch - just hope I have time to blog and share pics and such with everyone here too

This vacation has been a wonderful chance to catch up and re-connect at least partially with all my wonderful eagle and panda and nature and and and friends here :) I cherish you all

I'm back to say good night. Did not like what was on TV.
Hi Sharon Hi Jim
Good nigh Sharon, Jim and Belle!

Prayers going out for all

Good Morning and Welcome Back
Suzanne

Belle_WV said...

Good night all - the alarm will be quite a shock for me tomorrow - perhaps if I get up in time I can pop in for a moment of the Suzanne and Belle show reprised... not counting on it - I'll be lucky if I get myself and the kids out of here without missing bus or being late...

Dana I hope you're ok - missed you coming back for the evening. Nilla, hope you're home safely and just got busy with the zillion things that need attention when you get home...

Sweet dreams and a Wonderful Wednesday to all!

Good evening, Sharon.
It's really good to see you on the blog again...probably means you are healing well, which is really great.

Keep up the good moves, Sharon. We've missed you a lot.

So far, I've had to rely on pics you people have sent me..the nest has been bare every time I've checked it so far.

Keep your eyes peeled, eagle eye. We'll probably see some great pics yet.

Take care,
Jim

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Thank you so much, Jim!

movin said...

Good night to Tuesday/Good morning to Wednesday,

Have a great week, Everybody...

Suzanne said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR eagle world. Hope all had a wonderful long weekend! I sure enjoyed my time off. I could get used to this... 4 days off, work 3. Yup, could definately learn to LOVE THAT!!! Sure was tough getting to sleep last night though, and the alarm this morning...ugh!!

Have to get in the groove again. Logged in, or rather brought up my cams and the blog, but then started doing other things, and everyone is back today, so everyone had to talk, then I remembered I hadn't said good morning. Geesh, how quickly we forget.

Ok, will try to read some old blogs, hope everyone is well for this new year.

Have a great eagle day.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

Getting daylight. MT nests all around, but a gaggle of black dots in the background of the osprey nest.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning and happy new year to you, Suzanne. Glad to see you back.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Two eagles at BW!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

On the osprey cam!

Suzanne said...

Both eagles in osprey nest. Did not see them arrive. Sitting in the sun, can almost see their white heads...

Suzanne said...

Good morning, Sharon. How you feeling? Happy new year to you! Didn't do a refresh when I posted about the eagle pair in the osprey nest.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I am feeling a little better. Still have quite a bit of pain and am on antibiotics for a couple more weeks.

Anonymous said...

Good Morning all. I love that word "gaggle" it's been a while since I heard it. I feel a little smarter now since I woke up.

I had a long weekend too Suzanne but most of mine was spent at work LOL. I now have 4 days off and I need every one of them!!!

sharon Did you go look at the video of Buta Buta I made yesterday before I left for work. I htink you would enjoy it. Its on my For the Love of eagles BLOG Not sure how much you have or haven't had a chance to see, or how long you will be at the computer this morning, in fact not sure I know whether or not you are on the Feed Blitz, but a nice one on the NCTC Eagle of Shepherdstown BLOG too.

I am sure everyone is hoping for the Live cam today. Saw where BOTH eagles were in the nest last night. its been more than 2 days since I saw them both so i was really glad to read that.

OK Off to coffee and dog treats here very soon.

Suzanne said...

When do you have to go back to the dr? Did he give you any pain pills?

Morning, Glo! I watched one of your videos this morning, then had to quit for a bit. It was the one you had of Liberty and Belle fighting over the stick! Laughed my butt off! But guess Belle won that one. That was so funny! The other videos you had attahed were awesome, thoroughly started my day out right!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Suzanne, I am having to take pain pills. I go back to the doctor here on Thursday to have a colonoscopy set up. They want to find out where the liver abscess came from. They say they don't just appear from no where. More will definitely be revealed.

Anonymous said...

Live Feed is up!

Nilla said...

Good Morningggg just a pop in from work heading off to the bank... Hugs 2 E1 bbl...

Suzanne said...

Oh good luck. Hardest thing about them is drinking that stuff you have to drink. Tastes terrible. But other than that, you'll get a good nap! I hope they find out where it came from, I'm sure they don't just appear out of nowhere. Something must have caused the abscess. Hope it's something simple they can take care of right then, then you wouldn't have to go back. Can you eat solid food? I'm praying for you, gal.

Both eagles still in osprey nest.

Our nest looks like it's got a lot of feathers or something. Looks littered... (Haven't had time to go back and read the blogs, so that may not be news to anyone but me.)

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Boy, live feed got up early this morning. Thanks for the heads up, Glo!

I can eat anything I want. I have lost 16 pounds since 12/15. Appetite hasn't been the best but it is getting better. I will take the weight loss though cause I had gained some and I will take the losing for sure.

Suzanne said...

OH wow, congrats on the 16 pounds lost! Don't lose it too fast though, that's quick. My god, that's 16 pounds in a little over 2 weeks! Heck of a way to lose weight!! Too bad you can't market that (without the pain, of course), you'd be rich!

Suzanne said...

Both eagles in eagle nest!

Suzanne said...

One just left, one still there.

Suzanne said...

Both gone, all nests MT, still dark in Kent.

Suzanne said...

Eagle back with stick.

Anonymous said...

Well back from coffee. Looks like I missed seeing bOTH eagles again. Good to know they were both there though. Going to eat and take a little trip looking for eagles over here. since its been warm the last couple of weeks they aren't around as much, at least nt that anyone is seeing and photographing. Bringing camera Just in case I can get a nice shot, but mostly going to relax and enjoy if they are soaring over the river. BLOG at ya later.

Suzanne said...

Good viewing, Glo!

Geula said...

Hi ALL!
GOOD MORNING...I saw the live feed for about 5 minutes and then BOING!
It was gone...::SIGH::

Better that they should iron out the kinks BEFORE the proud eagle mom lays her eggs!

Suzanne said...

Seems Liberty is gathering sticks for Belle to rearrange. He's helping.

One still in BW.
