JIM

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks for the NEW THREAD Steven. Sorry that old bug got you. Take care of yourself; drink lots of fluids. Hope your feeling better soon.

Yes it is very nice to see our cam.

paula eaglet momster said...

Stay under those covers, Steve! Hope you feel better soon.

wvgal_dana said...

Jim big eagle at Kent on cam 1 ( :

wvgal_dana said...

Let me say 2 beautiful eagles on limb in cam 2 aww togetherness ( :

Suzanne said...

Oh, Steve, thank you for the new thread. So sorry you have the flu! Stay warm and drink lots of hot tea. Sure don't want to go out in this wind today, it's terrible.

Thanks for the heads up, Dana.

Daylight in Kent, eagle still in tree. Our gals still in place.

Suzanne said...

BOTH IN NEST...

wvgal_dana said...

Really it was Jim that give the heads up for the new thread. I just made it bolder for all to see. Can't take the credits the applause goes to Jim.

Suzanne said...

Belle just took off, there's Liberty and the 3 eggs.

Suzanne said...

There he goes, our Little Liberty is on the eggs now.

Oh, sorry Jim. Thanks for the heads up. I was on other thread and posted, then saw the new thread post, and just came over here. Didn't read back. Sorry!

wvgal_dana said...

Wasn't that just beautiful Suzanne ( :

Suzanne said...

Yup, Dana, it sure was! Oh, there are our BW eggs!!!!

Suzanne said...

Quick shot of the eggs, now they're gonna be turned. Think that's still Lady BW, and still fluffing. Wait a sec, she's getting ready to get back on eggs. Well is it Lady or Lord BW??? Hum, down on the eggs again, but think it's still Lady BW.

Liberty is up already.

Suzanne said...

Oh my goodness, I'm looking at both our cam and BW, and both eagles are moving branches while they're sitting on the eggs. Geesh, fantastic. Man, Liberty does not like that branch there. Is that the same branch they had such discussions about a while ago? Can't see what Lady BW is moving, but looked like something. Eagle still in tree at Kent.

Suzanne said...

Lady BW is rearranging the stuff in her nest.

wvgal_dana said...

I don't know if that branch blew yesterday toward where the sit in our nest or not. Yesterday I thought it had but wasn't sure.
Both have had it in their beaks. Can't figure out why one of them just doesn't pick it up and move it away.

wvgal_dana said...

bb

Suzanne said...

Lady BW is still multitasking... rearranging sticks and grasses while she sits on the eggs.

MEMA Jo said...

Good Morning Wind is still ripping thru the valley! Was really noisy throughout the night. The large stick in OUR nest looks as though it would have hit whichever eagle was nesting. I just hope he/she was facing 12 o'clock position. Yes, Dana I wish they would move it away from OUR eggs.
Steve, I could think of a lot better reasons to get off work for a long weekend then getting the flu bug. I hope it is only a 24hr--Anyway, the cam is up & you can watch OUR beautiful eagles on OUR cam! Thanks so much for getting the IT crew moving on it!

MEMA Jo said...

Jim
You are the early bird today

MEMA Jo said...

ButaButa has a new bed

Suzanne said...

Morning, MemaJo. Didn't hear the wind last night, but it sure was windy coming down here! Still is, makes it very very cold. So nice to logon this morning and see our nest! You're probably right about that branch, Jo. It was there at 0639 this morning, but don't know when it came down. Hope it didn't hit either of them!

MEMA Jo said...

If you log onto ajc.com and get the Panda news up, there is a gallery of recent pics down on the right side. The news article is about getting tickets to see her. Pics are more then adorable!

MEMA Jo said...

COME ON CAM - STAY UP

paula eaglet momster said...

Suz,
Did you see they might have EEwwwwiiiesss at the eagle festival at Blackwater? REal, live Ewwwiesss!

paula eaglet momster said...

Anyone else planning on going to the eagle festival? I am planning on going.

Suzanne said...

Hi Paula. No, didn't see that. I haven't seen any info on their festival, is it on the eagle cam site? Man, that would be kind of neat to see, if nothing else to see the size difference between them and eagles. And their huge strong beak. Don't know if I'm going or not, hate driving, you know that. LOL, maybe we can get enough together and Jo can drive that bus for us!!! Remember that?

Mits said...

GOOD "LATE" MORNING EVERYONE To quote a good eagle buddy of mine.:) Late to bed and late to rise. Just have been fascinated watching that Norfolk cam, I feel like I'm in the nest. She was just gently scooping the eggs up, and, turning them, just an awesome sight. FEEL BETTER, STEVEN:).

MEMA Jo said...

Oh No! You remember the BUS lol Emailing with Norma a little while ago about the BIRD FLEW that Steven & she has - remember that one

Suzanne said...

Jo, how could you think we'd forget THE BUS???? And yes, remember the bird flew too. Little early in the year for that one, though. I spect we'll all get that version of the bird flew this summer...BIG TIME. After watching all these eggs, then chicks, then fledglings, then gone, oh my, it's gonna be bad this year!

Suzanne said...

OMG, both BW and WV went black. And nobody home in Kent.

wvgal_dana said...

Morning again Suzanne, then Mits, Paula, Jo, and oh didn't know Norma poor Norma has the flu get better soon gal.

Suzanne said...

OMG, do you know what time it is? I'm thinking you guys are up way early! It's almost 11:30! Geesh, who knew?

paula eaglet momster said...

It is on the webblog. She has a link to a page about the festival, Suz. I saw pictures of ewwiess on there.

normabyrd said...

wvgal_dana said...

Norma Norma Norma there you are so ( : happy to see you. How are you feeling?

mauley said...

Dear Friends, Hope Steve is better soon. Praying for you, Steve and for Norma, too. Steve, how is your family? Who could forget the BUS or bird flew? I know that I will come down with a big dose of it in a few months (for the second time). Life is good for us momsters, the cam is up. donna

normabyrd said...

Always check TAI first---Oh, the "Little Prince" is growing up--I LOVE HIM!---I remember this time last year---getting up a dawn---trying to catch the "changing of the guard" so I could see the eggs---We are truly BLESSED!!-----Lots of EAGLES!!

wvgal_dana said...

hee hee yep that cat story was a winner lol

Mits said...

Norma, glad you are back, we missed you. Donna, I didn't get to see the cam til after the hatchings last year, so, I'm sure there will be some sleepless nights, to check on the progress of the eggs as the time gets closer.

normabyrd said...

DANA---Thanks for asking---I am FINE---FLU has FLEW!

Mits said...

PAULA, is there an egg at TH? She is sitting there in such a protective mode.

mauley said...

Paula, I missed the EEwwwiiiess at BW. I have a soft spot for them. I really like them and they are cute in a way. Come on now, Momsters, some of you must have a little feeling for them in a nice way.

Suzanne said...

Oh, I found it. Thanks Paula and Norma. Norma, hope you feel better very soon!

wvgal_dana said...

That's great Norma gal happy happy ..

I was thinking maybe that stick just looks so close to eagle in our nest. Cause if it was up against them they would surely move it. Wouldn't you all think??

Mits said...

Going to answer my own question, I don't see an egg at TH, but both are at TH and inspecting the nest bowl, so, maybe soon.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Little Princess is not going to do what Momma wants her to...Afternoon hours ButaButa want in her own den!
Mom sure did drag her out of there...

MEMA Jo said...

Eagle in ME NEST

MEMA Jo said...

CO cam No Video.
I just clarified that when I go look at daily pics, I am looking at yesterdays happenings. I didn't read that until after I clicked on a time that if it were today, there wouldn't be any pics...That is when I became suspicious! lol
That's like the test to prove people don't read everything in the instructions. They start the test and others have read to the end & the last instruction is that if you are reading this - you do not need to take the test.. lol

glo said...

LOL MeMa JO Now what exactly are you trying to say here :)

Mits said...

So true, Jo:):):).

glo said...

Live Feed is up

glo said...

well that sure didn't last very long :(

Mits said...

JO, I've seen the eagles at CO several times today, if it says NO VIDEO sometimes if I hit refresh it comes back on, or I just click on the black screen and it comes up, I have to do that at VA sometimes.

Mits said...

Eagle at Maine.

Mits said...

EAGLE AT SC.

Mits said...

Winter Storm Watch for our area, Saturday night thru Sunday night, sounds like more ICE coming our way, maybe.

MEMA Jo said...

;Someone tell me how to get the cam up after I sign in on Wavelit?? I can't get rid of the advertisement.

You know over on one of their pages they have an Eagle Cam listed. I thought I had lost it when BW came on after I clicked........ lol

Mits said...

BOTH EAGLES AT SC.

Mits said...

The cam usually comes up after the advertisement is finished. I'll go over and look, have you seen the Grizzlies of Grouse MT, Jo?

glo said...

MeMaJo Not sure if this is what you mean or not, but the Saanich cam has a very small temporary link off of my BLOG For the Love of Eagles..they don't have the big cam online yet. Just click on the one to BC. Also Hancock website which is really where you will be if you head for the bC cam has another link or two called Estruary 2 and Can't thinkof the other but sometimes there are eagles in Estruary 2 infact many think they have seen Li'l Sid there several times this winter. Hope that helps

Mits said...

Jo, you just have to let the commercial play, they when cams are working they come right up.

MEMA Jo said...

I have been trying to..
I have watched the McNeil Grizzly Bears recently. It looks so cold to be in that water fishing.

MEMA Jo said...

Speaking of Li'l Sid, I just wonder where Li'l Spunky has been showing herself?
Thanks for the link info Glo.

MEMA Jo said...

OK Mits I will use more patience then before.... lol

MEMA Jo said...

MEMA Jo said...

Oh my, that Grizzly caught a very large fish & is having a feast.

MEMA Jo said...

Oh Well I knew that the McNeil cam had closed down this past summer, I just thought it had returned.

I am watching reruns of 2006 !!!

Mits said...

Underneath the africam cam, there is a site for the Grouse MT bears, named Grinder and Coola. ALSO A NEW 2/23/07 UPDATE FROM FLA. Still waiting to see if eagles are going to have a new clutch, but nothing yet.

Mits said...

Well, at least you knew how it was going to end ,Jo.

Mits said...

JO, you have amil.

MEMA Jo said...

OK I feel like I've already had 3 strikes! MITS Where did Lynda White put her recent update? I can only see the 1/31 update.....

Mits said...

Jo, you have mail, again, not amil.......

MEMA Jo said...

I have the

LIVE FEED UP

wvgal_dana said...

I came back in and tried "live feed IT IS UP AND WORKING " ( :

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle flew into Maine

wvgal_dana said...

Oh sorry back everyone hi

MEMA Jo said...

Mits Believe it or not I did read that amil. <:)

Dana you got the wax, gal !!

MEMA Jo said...

I am so thankful that our Sycamore is a very sturdy tree! On live feed you can get an idea of the winds we're experiencing.

I did refresh the FL page & for sure, Mits, there was 1/23/07 comment by Lynda. I never doubted you, I just didn't know why my pc wouldn't bring it up.

Taking a break BBL

wvgal_dana said...

Me did huh Jo well "power hot wax" for NCTC cams going NOW

paula eaglet momster said...

Yup, EP + EP + EP = Eaglets

paula eaglet momster said...

Live feed looks like 3D, doesn't it?

wvgal_dana said...

Changing at Norfolk

wvgal_dana said...

You could see real good how the eagle tucked in its talcons when it stepped into where the eggs are. wow

Mits said...

My EAGLE BLANKET, has arrived and it is very nice, maybe I will go take a nap:).

wvgal_dana said...

Congtrs. Mits on your blanket

glo said...

glad to read the blanket has reached its homw. I think it might be gonna feel pretty good before the weekend is over. Our bad weather starts in a very few hours here again :( But yep I have an eagle blanket too!

Mits said...

TEE-HEE... thought maybe I would give it to Maggie, but, she has enough blankets:):):). And besides it is too big for her, but when she comes over I will let her lay on it, she will like that, it is so soft.

Mits said...

Thanks, Dana.

Mits said...

turning eggs at VA again., and at our nest too.

Mits said...

Our eagle is doing the classic roll back and forth to settle on the eggs, gee it is so good to see this.

wvgal_dana said...

Boy they were way up close and personal with Norfolk trying to see into the egg hole. Didn't work but will be neat when they hatch.

wvgal_dana said...

Wind blowing the feathers on the back near tail of maybe Belle? Not sure who??

Mits said...

Those eggs are so far down in the nest bowl, that you can usually only see part of one when they are off them.

wvgal_dana said...

Been hearing the eagles in Maine. Like you said the other day Mits very "vocal".

Mits said...

They are somewhere close by Dana.

wvgal_dana said...

You got that right Mits. Probably sitting high in the tree. Or a tree near the nest. I love them calling.

Mits said...

Music to my ears, Dana.

wvgal_dana said...

Oh I can't remember if I told you all. Thank you Very Very much for praying for my sister. She is home from her daughters and doing much better. Yes she still has her tiny dog. She did change his name to "Boo" and when I'm on the phone with her it is so good to hear her laughing at him. lol

wvgal_dana said...

Buta Buta is awake!!

Mits said...

Glad to hear that, Dana..egg turning time at our nest.

wvgal_dana said...

And the wiggle down, pulling in materials, little fix up.

At DC one is asleep on rocks and another is asleep on the floor. Don't know which is which.

Buta Buta in bamboo forest.

wvgal_dana said...

Our's is not down in nest all the way on the eggs. Up looking around like expecting someone to fly in for maybe relief.

wvgal_dana said...

hee hee eagle at Norfolk white feathers on top of head just blew upward. Looked like a "bad hair day" lol

wvgal_dana said...

bbiaw Ed wants his dinner

Mits said...

Landing at ME.

Mits said...

And a singing take off at ME

Mits said...

Our eagle up and stretching, and turning, got to be break time soon.

Mits said...

EAGLE AT ME.

Mits said...

GONE THAT FAST.... our eagle up again.

Mits said...

Moving nesting material around

Mits said...

Just a guess, think it might be Lib, waiting for B

Mits said...

Did I miss a switch at our nest????

Mits said...

Maybe not??

Mits said...

Little birds are flying all around our nest, one just landed under the nest.

Mits said...

Darn just missed a shot of the sparrow climbing up the nest on the left-hand side

Mits said...

Got a good shot of the 3 eggs though.

wvgal_dana said...

wiggling back down into our nest

Mits said...

going to watch TV...

MEMA Jo said...

It is a windy cold evening.
Watched OUR egg turning on the live cam & could see one of the eggs.
Belle (?) really rocked and rolled on the eggs to get them under her just right.

MEMA Jo said...

Going over to the games..BBL

glo said...

Watching Belle turn the eggs at the nest just now where it is like 8:30 pm reminds me that she doesn't sleep through the night wether it is pleasant weather, blowing like crazy or rain sleeting and snowing all over her...she cares for the eggs. i wonder if Liberty stops by during the night too to exchange places. First night i can remember since we have eggs that someone could stay up and answer that question, but nO I don't think its gonna be me. Inquiring minds do want to know though, So Jim or Birdgirl if you shold see some action at the nest and think we're all asleep, how about snapping us a picture and answering the question.

Sleepwell all...Blog at ya some tomorrow and lots of camming I hope!

Belle_WV said...

Hi everyone,

Happy weekend - glad to read today's blogs about all the eagle action - wow. Sorry to hear you've got a 'bug' Steven - hope it leaves you soon!

Did anyone check today's post on buta? There's a cute poem by Jay and he says we should know the tune - but I can't get the tune in my head - feeling pretty unsmart at the moment...

Mits said...

EAGLE JUST FLEW INTO KENT NESR

Mits said...

egg turning at our nest...Hi Belle, I'll go check the tune.

Mits said...

Haven't a clue??????

MEMA Jo said...

I couldn't get the tune either, Belle. Jay writes very well about our ButaButa. Once a week he usually does the coverage in a novel way.
Maybe Mits will get the tune!! lol

Our live feed is up, Belle

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Hello my dear friends of fine feathers!!! How is everybody this evening? I am working until 10 tonight so I will be back in a few minutes!! I have been neglecting the blog lately and it is time to get back in the groove. We have a lot going on around the eagles' nests!

MEMA Jo said...

Whoops! Mits already said she hasn't a clue. Maybe it's not really one of those child's tunes....Maybe it a hard rock song lol

wvgal_dana said...

Night all take care

MEMA Jo said...

Nite Dana - hear from you in the morning.

Good idea Sharon!!! See you after 10

MEMA Jo said...

Both Belle and Lady Blackwater have their heads tucked in under their wing. Still windy out there and very cold.........

Mits said...

I can't even give it a good guess, just blank when I look at it, but he is fun. He loves his pandas.

Mits said...

SHARON, SO GLAD TO SEE YOU:):):)!

Mits said...

BELLE DOES A GOOD JOB OF WRIGGLING.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I just emailed Atlanta Zoo to ask them to ask Jay what the tune is. MTBR!

MEMA Jo said...

Good thinking. The way he starts out with OH WHERE you think it's
OhWhereOhWhere Has My Little Dog Gone.... But it's not that. And I don't think it is our Spunky song tune. I even tried BAA BAA BLACK SHEEP..... Like I said it's probably
a hard rock tune

Mits said...

That's the tune I was thinking of , Jo, but, the words did not fit.

Mits said...

National Anthem doesn't fit either:(.

Mits said...

How about, "How much is that Doggie in the window???"

MEMA Jo said...

Some of the lines fit - I only know the 1st two lines of the song HowMuchIsThatDoggieInTheWindow...
But his 3rd & 4th verses don't fit.

MEMA Jo said...

And it sure isn't
Three Blind Mice lol

glo said...

Well I think its My Bonnie lies over the Ocean OK thats all folks Good Night.

MEMA Jo said...

Glo, I think that is the best guess yet!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I am finally done with work. I saw Belle get up a few minutes ago and change positions. What diligent parents they are!!

Mits said...

Do you think there are kids out there who know My Bonnie lies over the ocean????

Mits said...

She is a good mom, Sharon. Is Mattie there tonight? Need to get my sister, "the lurker" to look at that poem....Ceil, if your around e-mail me.

MEMA Jo said...

I remember learning it in grade school - don't know what they sing nowadays in the schools.

Sharon, I was thinking about Belle (who usually has night duty) nesting on those eggs for 30+ days & then being busy with the eaglets for another 2-3 months.
Remarkable female!

Belle_WV said...

Argh I just typed a nice long post covering everything I wanted to say before I headed to bed, and it didn't post :( Anyway thanks for the guesses on the poem - Jay is great at entertaining us, I wish I could view Buta more, but thanks for the heads up on the pics on the ajc site - going to check them tomorrow. I was thinking the song was 'I've got a baby bumble bee'...

glad our cam is up and live cam - wowser! How great will that be to watch if it is available tomorrow - I'm going to try it :)

Sweet dreams to all!

MEMA Jo said...

ajc.com has 2 videos down on the left side and on the right side there is a photo album of ButaButa

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Mits, Mattie is at Beverly's again tonight. She is deserting me!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Well, friends, I am going to bed now. It has been a long day. Blog with you tomorrow.

Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur!!

MEMA Jo said...

I just said my good nights to Belle & Lady BW. I am really sleepy tonight. I will call it a day - a good day!

Good Night Sharon & Mits
Pleasant dreams & peaceful sleep
Prayers being said for all


Mattie will never desert you loLove

movin said...

Good evening Eagle Lovers...TGIF!

It is great to see the cam working and being able to scope out Belle and the nest even in the dark... all the snow is melted and the nest looks fairly dry already. Fabulous...

The BW site has been running some interesting information and photos...guess you probably saw that already.

Anybody heard of any more eggs on the Channel Islands? All 3 pairs appear to be about to do it (one is in the process already).

Well, I'm pretty tired, and I still have things to do tonight, so I will wish everyone a good night and a good weekend now.

Jim

Mits said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE

MEMA Jo said...

Good Saturday Morning - I hope someone will join me soon.
The live feed is not up but our cam seems to be running well. Liberty, I think, is on the nest. I am going to go surf the other cams now.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Jo ( :

Wrote a nice long post then it didn't post dang thing !

MEMA Jo said...

Of course it isn't daylight yet at Kent or CA.
VA, MD, WV all have nesting eagle
NE is MT still lots of snow in nest
CO is MT
FL is MT
ME 1 eagle was lying down but is now
up and about the nest

That's the morning coverage for
the 11 cams being watched

MEMA Jo said...

Hi Dana - I think that Belle last evening had the same thing happen to her with a long post.

Just checked out cams - Ours seems to be ok

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE, NEW THRAD IS UP, SEE YOU OVER THERE.

Tuesday

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...
