Mits said...

Read what I sent you from the Mayo Clinic, Louise, it has a self-help part at the end, and yes, leg should be up along with some other self-help tips, but, Dana is right, they need to find out exactly what is causes this.

Mits said...

JUST SITTING THERE IN OUR NEST.

Nilla said...

Okie Dokie Thelma.. LQQK at Buta she is on the move again and over the ledge at the door way and sniffin bamboo..

Bamboo is stopping her from going back into the corner she likes but look she is trying... Mei is asleep n Tai is eating bamboo...

I can keep the Maine site up with the winamp player. Only download and install this if you know how to put "open url" in WMP, because it makes winamp the default player. The Maine site is the only thing I have been able to play in it, but it stays up forever! You don't have to keep hitting the refresh key after 2 minutes.

Thanks for Keeping an "Eagle Eye" on us, Steve.

I also had a very good nap in my most favorite recliner. First nap I have taken in days-Maybe even a month!
Doesn't look as though any egg(s) will be laid tonight.
It is really really windy outside.

Way to windy for a dog walk...I am staying in waiting for my grandson to get here...going to watch him for awhile while Mom & Dad help out w/ bingo at the ambulance company...

Wind calmed a little - Just let the cat out BUT don't need a leash - He is a Lone Walker. He'll be right back at the door within minutes if too cold.

Looks like those winds took care of our cam for the weekend :(:(

Good Morning. Well darn another weekend with No cam at all. I did get a good night's sleep though :-) Like my new pillow. Still need a new bed though, and sale ends at the end of the month. Oh well i am sure there will be a president's day Sale in Feb, if I haven't made a decision by then LOL. have a good day everyone.

IrisF said...

Good Morning Paula, Mits, Megan, well blogger cop left me get this far.

Mits I agree with you, just so every bug gets taken care of before the eggs/chicks appear. I am so hooked, it would be awful not to be able to look in on our feathered family wouldn't it?

Have a great day everyone, Iris

IrisF said...

Good Morning Glo, glad you liked your new pillow!!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning everybody. Started working around 10. I am sitting here now with my neighbors little chihuahua mix sitting on my lap. He is the sweetest little puppy and my dogs get along with him so well. His name is Ollie and he really can run with the big dogs!

Good Eagle Watching Morning It Ain't
lol But all my eagle buddies are here and that makes it a Good Morning

Tai just came down from the top of the tree. The other pandas look as though they are lying low in the wind. My back yard is full of sticks - good eagle nest building sticks! Think I'll have any takers?

Mits said...

Norma, they will, probably not interfere with the eggs and let nature takes its course.

Anonymous said...

Tai is certainly making it a good day for some Zoo visitors! Those little guys will have so much to talk about seeing the Little Prince.

normabyrd said...

Belle_WV said...

Hi to everyone. Happy Saturday. Feels like winter might actually arrive finally.

Is it certain that the FL eagles eggs are no good? That's so sad - I guess there is no way for them to try again this year - she's out of egg making mode... So sad if they aren't viable. Guess they didn't make the connection well enough :(

I miss our cams and buta's cam - weekends are no fun in that respect - but I sure do need them to catch a breath.

Good Afternoon: Peeking in!
Hi Belle, Glo & Norma....
All the DC pandas are in the sleep mode. Belle, I know what you mean about not seeing ButaButa.. She has been growing up quickly & her gymnastics are looking like Tai's!
Some videos on the site - but not long enough. Remember ajc.com has some.
No eagles to view except need to check FL...

Belle - Message on FL's nest future is
It is early in the season, so it is possible they may reclutch and try again.

I'VE BEEN BUSY--SLEEPING IT OFF--BUSY--SLEEPING IT OFF ALL DAY (NOT SURE WHAT I HAVE, BUT IT'S NOT TOO SERIOUS), SO I DIDN'T DO A LOT OF EAGLE WATCHING.

[DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO CAPTURE STILLS FROM MS MEDIA PLAYER 11?? I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIGURE IT OUT ON THE SANTA CRUZ NEST CAM YET.]

AND ST LUCIE...WHAT'S GOING ON THERE? SHE WAS STILL ON THE NEST MAYBE 10 DAYS AFTER THE TIME THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO HATCH. I WROTE LINDA A NOTE, BUT I HAVEN'T GOTTEN A RESPONSE YET.
