Wednesday january 24

Basically what's happening is our voltage regulator for the cam microwave feed is going bad. We have ordered another one. Seems like we are in the process of replacing things in the cam system one by one. We're working on it...

New thread.

Thanks for the new thread, Steve, and the update. I hope the new voltage regulator will do the trick

Anonymous said...

Oh, and could you climb up the tree and give that thing a good whack...maybe it will work for a little while till the new one gets here! :):)

Anonymous said...

Thank you Paula for the heads up on the New Thread.

Steve sorry to send the email but had to get an update. I thank you for updating us to the cam.

I do agree with Paula maybe a good old whack would may it work for awhile. Although I volunteer Todd to go up the tree. Your woren out from all your traveling.

Suzanne said...

Time for me to hit the road. Thought I'd never get back in. Grrrr.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly! Or sit. Or not sit. Or just watch the egg....

Back from My Staff Meeting. There she sits like a good little mom.


Sure wish the still would work consistently whether or not we are still working out and ordering new parts etc for the live. maybe the issues are related. COnfusing at best and continued frusttrating for all I am sure. We still have all had the opportunity to see something this year we did not see last year. Hoping praying encouraging supporting and appreciating...that how I feel.

Hey Glo, we had a good time in the parachat last night!

Seems we "getting our education" on eagle anatomy

Anonymous said...

Ask Dana all about that!

Anonymous said...

When you all get on the parachat- you do float your screen don't you. Meaning that you knew while you were over there of all the excitement on the blog concerning Lady Blackwater and the laying of the first Eagle Season Egg?
It's just I missed your not being here (chat & blog at same time is what I'm saying)

Anonymous said...

LOL I am glad that para chat is being fun for folks who come in to use it. As tough as it was getting ont he thread today before Steve coul dpost us a new one, my guess is you saved folks about 100 or more pots that would have slowed it down even more, and yet everyone had fun and all the info they needed. Cool. Now if Mama eagle there has all the info she needs, We have nothing to worry about I am sure she does havce the info...now will she choose to act on it or will we all learn a little bit the hard way. MTBR

I did call DEFS byt he way...the line was busy, seemed to be all tied up from WV to Maryland...anyone have an idea what coul dhave been causing that LOL. ((((((hugs))))) She is so pretty sitting there. I do hope she sits there enough to go to the next stage of Mommy hood. Will be so fun to watch her.

Nilla said...

Hey Hey Hey ... Just been catching up on the blog and checking cams.. Paula thanks for the heads up on neenergy cam.. Really a nice nest with snow underneath... Suz is having her 5th drink n seeing double eggs..lol Amazing as it maybe Mother Nature has her own agenda on how the outcome of all her creatures and what will happen, so we as humans just show compassion when our heartaches for the animals... NOW WHERE THE H did that come from????? Yes Jo dont know about floating but i was multi taskin...lol As for anatomy of birds yes we had a class i called my sister who raises birds to asked a question ,,, female birds have female parts ... Well its back to work for me today and time for shower and off for a bite to eat before work... C U'all from work later... Relized no sign of Sandra today hope she is deleting e-mails...

Nilla said...

here i still set watching buta buta trying to eat bamboo..lol funnyyy adorable butter ball... Ta was at the big windows in the big yard eating bamboo..watched intently since Thelma was going that she would maybe set there by the windows and wav.. LQQK at that lil Ms Boo Boo playing with bamboo

Anonymous said...

Copied from Nilla female birds have female parts



LOL are you serious...now who'd a thunk ?!!!! LOL.

I am sure the conversation got pretty fun/funny. Too bad I had to work, but yes I have already been told that several of you were in fact multi tasking. That is of course how it needs to be. Immediate chatting can be so very much fun....

Feeling left out whether you are on the BLOG alone or in the Chat alone is not much fun at all. And eagle info we all are interested in that BOTH places....other conversations come and go depending on whose chatting or blogging. Our eagles they obviously stay right in the hearts of all who are here watching NCTC and the many other cams we now share whether fur or feather.

Anonymous said...

ButaButa is surely investigating that bamboo.

Anonymous said...

Noticed that the ME cam System is down: computer is broken. Might be awhile for that one. NY gal said that it started snowing around 4am this morning & it's up to her knees & she has long legs! lol
MT nest out on the West Coast all around. Was glad for Lynda White responding to Jim & Mits about length of time before starting all over again.
ButaButa is really playing around with her 3 sticks of bamboo!

My electricity went off just for a second but I had to reboot!

Good evening everyone. Been kind of lazy today. Worked a little while this morning and took a nap this afternoon. Then I had to pick Mattie and Justin up from school and go to the grocery store. Now I am working again. Wish now I had worked instead of napping!

HI SHARON & NILLA----I just supposed every one disappeared when I appeared----Then BUTA BUTA even went to sleep----Wouldn't you like to hug her---just once!!!

Nilla said...

i agree and you would think with a high polluntin company like Earthlink we could have 24/7 cam service!!! Oh no weatherman said high winds agin and more snow .. not expecting abig deal with snow but enough to make it miserable...friday morning wind could be 0 or even 10 below ,, wow not good for those eggs... Glad Belle has not laid yet..

Thats because I took a nap too, and he was sitting right there when I went to sleep

This eagle watchng can be downright exhausting LOL

Hiiiii Normaaaaaa Oh you must get over to see the nest when you make it back to Shepherdstown Norma .. Just totally awsome sight so large now...

normabyrd said...

SHARON do you have to go back to Dr. again?----Or are you on the mend---I hope it's the latter--

Nilla said...

I got to share this with U'all I told you yesterday my daughter Dawn saw a Pregrin Falcon setting in the medium of interstate and she called me so excited even came on line to look for pictures of the bird to make sure thats what she saw... Which makes me happy that maybe just maybe she might be getting interested in birds... Guess they to are migrating back from South America...

normabyrd said...

Nilla said...

Thelma whats your plans for Feb 2nd?? Thats on afriday??? I was thinking depending on weather now to gather up Jo and skidaddled down there to see you for awhile...

Nilla said...

we could go over to zoo n see Tai..lol sound like aplan???

Mits said...

Sounds good to me.....

Mits said...

Or if that doesn't work, would love to come up to Cracker Barrel or go see the nest.

Mits said...

Eagles still at WEST END nest...California.

Mits said...

Dana, I asked the cam ladies on duty what was wrong with the cams this a.m., they either didn't hear my question or ignored me:).

Belle_WV said...

Mits!! I just read the first few blogs and saw your post about Temple Grandin - how was the lecture? I have wanted to see her/hear her speak for a long while! I got a notice that she was going to be speaking at the Smithsonian's lecture series, but then couldn't find a link to any further information - I wouldn't have been able to take off work anyway :(

Nilla said...

How dare her ignore you Thelma...She is prolley the one who was running the cam like adrunk behind the wheel all over n up n down... Why didnt ya tap her on the back and say EXCUSE ME BUT...

Nilla said...

okie dokie its your call & Jo's the nest or Tai..

Belle_WV said...

Phew - finally got caught up with blogs on this thread - not gonna go back - will just hope I didn't miss anything important - thanks to folks who forwarded pics of the BW egg today! How exciting! Now I will be nervously counting the days for that lil one to hatch, hopefully.

Nilla, how's your leg? I saw that you got blood drawn and go back soon, are you feeling any relief after following (ahhh-heemmmmmm - at least supposed to be following) treatment plan?

Mits said...

BELLE....what and amazing woman, that's right you would have loved it. I got both her books and can't wait to read them, will send them to you after I am done, if you like. I can't imagine her life growing up, but she had a strong set of parents, that demanded certain behavior of her, she was not spoiled like I think some normal and autistic children of today are.I knew exactly what she was taking about, I've always thought I've had some sort of learning disorder, but, I see so many things in the world that people just don't notice.

Mits said...

Nilla, don't want to make the cam ladies angry with me.

Mits said...

Dinnertime...BBL!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good evening everybody. Mits you will never be alone on this blog! This is my home!

Belle_WV said...

Mits, I'm so glad you got to see her - she is amazing. I have her books, already and have read them - you will love them; but thanks for offering to lend :) We're ALL on the spectrum....

And nope you'll never be alone... I can't afford to get hooked back into a chat room - they're too addicting for me for school year, maybe come summer, though

Belle_WV said...

How're you doin' Sharon? Hope the pain is less and that the abcess going away/gone?

eagle-eyed sharon said...

The pain is getting less but I don't know if the abscess is gone or not. Waiting for the appointment to be set up at UVa.

Belle_WV said...

Less pain is a GOOD thing :)

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Less pain is a great thing.

Belle_WV said...

For sure :) Congratulations to Andrew for being selected to the WVU Honor band! How AWESOME is that?? WOW :) I didn't read back, but I'm sure his performance the other day was great.

well i am in alot of pain and need cigarette..lol BUT cant take pain pill right now and been going on 6 months no cigs .. still crave!!!!

Belle_WV said...

Hope everyone has a great evening - time to do some family time :) Sweet eagle and egg dreams for everyone :)

Belle_WV said...

Nilla, I am so proud of you! I'm sorry that you're having the pain, but happy you're not doing any cigs - they wouldn't really help anyway - just add more trouble and then guilt on top of the pain :) NOT worth it :) You're so strong- I admire you tremendously! Sure hope the Dr. can give you some relief- Friday, right?

Nilla said...

yes Friday No Belle i have not returned to smoking but like i said still crave at times really bad.. and this night happens to be one of them...

Congrats on the wax, Paula. I'm so comfortable on the blog and to me it is a much more stress-free enviroment to watch the eagles and pandas. I know it acts up all the time...wish it could be fixed permanently, but I like when people like Belle drop in, that we don't get to hear from often and the UK girls, its like being in the living room and people are stopping by for a visit.

Suzanne said...

Morning, eagle world. See momma is snoozing on the nest. Got her head tucked in her wing in the back, but she does move occassionally. I'm guessing we still have only the 1 egg. I'm hoping she lays another either by Fri or Sat, if she hasn't already.

Not to bad out today, but getting windy! 31° at my house, didn't look when I got here, so no idea. Just know wind is picking up.

May try to read yesterday's blogs, if I have time, but I kinda doubt it today.

All have a great eagle day. Hopefully, our piecemeal repair of our cam will fix it temporarily. Checked this morning, and still lines, so just closed it.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Nilla said...

Morning Suz... Just up long enough to check cams and take apill... She is asleep still with head tucked under wing as you said... Heck Mei & Tai arent up yet neither...almost 5:45am usually they are up. Yes wind is suppose to pick up and be very cold this weekend... Back to bed i go for some more Zzzzzzzzz , Have a great day Suz... Good Morning 2 Everyone else also when U'all git here... Hugs, Nilla

Nilla said...

I hope Sandra is doing ok as she was having a problem with her eyes the other day perhaps allergies? Hey Sandra Hugs 2 U

Suzanne said...

Morning, Nilla. She was in the sam spot for quite a long time this morning. Thought the cam went down, but it didn't. She has changed her position and moved her head, but head just went back under the wing. Sleepy little girl!

Hope you're feeling better!

No time to read the blogs, hope Sandra is doing better also! Allergies are still around for a lot of people since it's remained so warm lately. That may change now that it's getting colder.

Suzanne said...

Well, I think our gal might be waking up. She's still sitting, but head is up and she's looking around. She appears to be alert and no longer so sleepy. She didn't do much moving this morning from about 4:30 to now, 6:49. Seems about right, they usually show up in the osprey nest around 7 or so. Wonder if she'll give us a peek at the egg.

Oh, read Lisa's update on the eagle site... very interesting.

Suzanne said...

Just arrived in osprey nest, 0652. Just one with glowing eyes. Our gal still in nest, hasn't moved, other than her head.

Suzanne said...

Well wonder if they can hear me? She just got off the nest, standing on side. Still just the one egg. She just moved to other side of nest, can see egg clearly now.

Suzanne said...

Dang, she just took off. 6:52:23.

Ok...trust the eagles, trust the eagles. Deep breath...

Waiting to see if she shows up on the osprey cam...

Suzanne said...

Mate just arrived at osprey nest, eagle nest now MT. 6:54:01

Suzanne said...

Both settled down to sit for a while, osprey nest. Egg all alone, eagle nest.

Suzanne said...

First one in osprey nest just took off. Wait a sec and see if he shows up in the eagle nest.

Suzanne said...

Hasn't showed up yet...6:58:23

Suzanne said...

Just arrived, 6:59:24. About the same amt of time it took her to get to the osprey nest, it took him to return to the eagle nest. I'm now positive it's the same couple we've been seeing on both nests.

LOL, morning Dana. Think I said yesterday it was a good thing I was here and not home, I'd have about 5 drinks. Think that was sometime in the EARLY morning??? Good grief, 5 drinks would put me out!

They had a switch this morning, but she had to go get him at the osprey cam! Left the egg unattended for about 7 mins, but I think it's the same couple we've been watching all summer at the osprey nest.

How you feeling today?

ok ty for asking.

Yea if we hadn't read Lisa's comments I think we all would have given up on the egg she has laid.

I thought she would have laid another one by now though. Maybe sometime today or tomorrow.

I'll be gone most of day so lay your egg lady BW lol

I see our cam still has lines...

Just left osprey nest.

Suzanne said...

Yeah, turned our cam right off after I saw the lines. I just hope it gets fixed before Belle lays her first egg, and we actually get to see it!

I think our BW gal will lay another egg either tomorrow or Sat.

Oh, just arrived back, osprey eagle. Can't tell if she has a fish or not.
