Here we go again!!!

Mits said...

Going out...TTUL!

Suzanne said...

Eagle in osprey nest.

Thanks for the new thread, Steven. Yup, another year of STRESS for the 3 babies to come. But they are such good parents, I'm sure they'll do an excellent job again.

BTW, I told Lisa when I sent her pics this morning, and she said to tell NCTC and the blog

"Be sure to tell all at NCTC that I said congrats on the eggs!
Best of luck to all of them. :-)"

MEMA Jo said...

Good 3 Egg Morning!
I don't believe this! Well looking at the pic Suzanne sent out -
YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!


Thanks Steve for the new thread.I just signed in - was checking email first so I can't thank wvuag for heads up but I can say Welcome.

WHOO HOO!

MEMA Jo said...

Norma hoho! I thought you made a typo but you meant that the LIVE feed is good too

glo said...

OK So I'm confused....Are you guys getting live feed I 've tried twice now and no live feed

paula eaglet momster said...

Did you say the live feed is up? Jo and Norma?

I am not getting anything on it...

paula eaglet momster said...

Steve, any info on the live feed?

paula eaglet momster said...

Just turned eggs. No pic.

Suzanne said...

Good grief, missed the dawn. It's daylight at Kent.

Still eagle in osprey nest. One on eagle nest, one in our nest.

Suzanne said...

Arrrgggghhhhh. Blue screen. Hope that means they're working on the cam!!!

MEMA Jo said...

No Live Feed. I was laughing at Norma's comment to Steve
-LIFE IS GOOD!-----ALSO LIVE IS GOOD TOO!!!
Norma has a way of saying things that I love! I think she was suggesting to Steve that LIVE (feed) would be nice to have.

Sorry for any confusion.

paula eaglet momster said...

My Cam is down...blue screen...hope you NCTC folk are working on it...

Steven said...

They're working on the picture.

paula eaglet momster said...

Cam is back up, turning eggs again

MEMA Jo said...

Sure hope the BLUE doesn't haunt
us too often

mauley said...

It is truly a wonderful day.

Suzanne said...

Hi WVUAG. I think I talked to you last year, but my memory is not that good. In any case, thanks for the heads up.

Oh. pic is back. Standing over eggs, but not showing them. Nope, turning them it looks like.

MEMA Jo said...

THANKS FOR THE INFO STEVE

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the info, Steven! Normabyrd is right, LIFE IS GOOD.

Good morning to everyone I haven't spoken to. Great 3 egg day today!

paula eaglet momster said...

Thank you Steve. We welcome all your updates...good or bad!!

normabyrd said...

THANKS MEMA JO----I am glad you understand me!----SORRY PAULA--GLO for the confusion!----I was just trying to be clever----I'm not very GOOD at that---

Suzanne said...

Osprey eagle squaking at something. BW eagle just turned eggs. Think that is Lady BW.

Geula said...

Hi! 3 eggs again... BWTG to Libery and Belle!

glo said...

OK Paula Since you are closer than I am I am letting you use the wet noodle for you know who...but take good care of it csue we just might need it lots more ya just never know LOL ((((hugs)))))

MEMA Jo said...

Checking out other cams quickly!
Guess What
I see a Burrowing Owl on WildWatch! Yesterday all I talked about was never ever seeing one on their cam - And there it is!
My lucky day 3 eggs & 1 owl!

normabyrd said...

All most forgot the "Little Princess"----She now weights 21 lbs. & is doing what she does best SLEEP!!!

MEMA Jo said...

HELLO GEULA
How about those 3 eggs?
So glad to know that you know.

normabyrd said...

I can't seem to settle down--ho!---the LITTLE BEAUTY---BUTA BUTA weighs 21 lbs.--

normabyrd said...

HI GEULA!!---Isn't it a GREAT DAY?-----3 eggs & they are working on the live cam!----We are all gearing up for a SNOW/ICE storm this evening & tomorrow----What's happening at your place?

Suzanne said...

Wow, our cam looks mucho better, thanks Steve and NCTC!

Osprey eagle puffing that chest out! Lady BW still sitting pretty, and I think that's Belle on the eggs, right everyone? Looks big.

glo said...

Paula be sure to keep that noodle handy this morning oK LOL

MEMA Jo said...

Two Harbors eagle in nest
Could be nesting..but think it is too early for CA to have any eggs.

normabyrd said...

THANKS JO---That's the first time I have see the Owls---That's COOL!

MEMA Jo said...

Suzanne - Maybe yes - Maybe no
I have promised myself Not To Guess
unless they are both there - Then I am usually right!
lol

paula eaglet momster said...

NO, Not nesting at TH,,,,but did just mate!

Also, mated at WE this morning, too!

They expect eggs around the week of Feb 18th.,..which is actually next week!

glo said...

OK I think I've come up with a plan.

I am not looking forward to seeing all that ice and snow on our little family

No one liked the catapult idea last year, and the ladder that even came with a fireman didn't seem to work either
But how about
Dana's telescopic pole and throw in small little heater fan dealy with ya know an outdoors extension cord...and Megan is obviously the closest person who is fit as a fiddle.. We have to help get this little family throught he weaterh coming in.

Man another gray hair and a wrinkle...weather alert goes off on my computer as I type geeesh!!!

Suzanne said...

LOL, MemaJo, that's cheating! Got to guess when only 1 is in the nest. I think it's Belle... We're gonna have to figure out their tails or something, like the Lord and Lady BW...she spreads hers, he doesn't. But sometimes he does, but only a little, she spreads her feathers way out.

Suzanne said...

Oh, Glo, let's not talk about the upcoming weather! I'm trying to ignore it (but I know it won't go away), just don't want to think about it!

MEMA Jo said...

Now Glo console yourself in that
MOTHER NATURE KNOWS BEST
& as Mits' hubby would say
It is what it is

And cross your fingers & say prayers for our special eagle family!

MEMA Jo said...

Norma Did you read on Panda Updates about the Jolly ball?

MEMA Jo said...

Ok Suzanne - I will break my promise just one time - It is Belle.
Her length and the way she sits on the eggs. Paula pointed out that Belle sits higher then Liberty.

MEMA Jo said...

I pray that Sharon's procedure is finished by now and that it wasn't as painful as she was expecting. She will be home as it was out patient.

Our Megan is working a new job today! Yeah! for our gal!

I hope the ladies across the pond will return to see out 3 eggs!

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks wvuag for the heads up about the new thread.

Thanks Steven for the New Thread. For trying to get the pic on our cam alittle better.

Since I'm Thanking: Thanks Belle and Liberty for 3 eggs again this year. We are praying for you and the eggs.

paula eaglet momster said...

That is Belle in the nest.

MEMA Jo said...

Mei & Tai are out in the yard. Tai is really getting large. Mits has
ZOO DUTY Wed & can give us some updates on the night time separation!

ButaButa is sleeping

wvgal_dana said...

Believe it or not I need to get breakfast. bb

MEMA Jo said...

How are you feeling, Dana

MEMA Jo said...

I guess I had better go eat some Brunch also. I saw 3 eggs & forgot about everything else. lol

normabyrd said...

I haven't been able to get back on the blog----GLO must have used her WET NOODLE---ho! ho!----JO---can you tell where MEGAN is working?----That GREAT---Yes---I read BUTA'S update most every day----She is sooo TINY next to LUN LUN & my TAI is getting so large---hard to tell him from MEI----unless they are standing close together!!!

normabyrd said...

SHARON said she would let us know when she gets home!!!----I have been praying the procedure w/not be so painful!!!

MEMA Jo said...

Norma I am not sure where Megan's job is located. She couldn't get into the blog to publish last night - she could only read. She sent
me an email that she had to get some sleep 'cause she had a job to start Monday. Hopefully she'll be on eary evening & tell us how it went.

Suzanne said...

I'm so glad Megan got a job! That was quick! Hope it's something she really likes. Tell her I said Congrats when she comes on. Didn't see her this morning and was wondering where she was.

Eagle left osprey nest. Refresh was a black pic, when I finally got it to refresh, he was gone.

normabyrd said...

SANDY---How is your husband?---I wasn't here yesterday---need to read yesterday's blog have had you all in my prayers too!---------

MEMA Jo said...

I just saw 2 of our 3 eggs when Belle changed her position.

paula eaglet momster said...

Eagle at NE, still eating.

Maine is MT, but new zoomed in image.

MEMA Jo said...

Looks as though BUTA BUTA rolled over BUT she didn't wake up.

wvgal_dana said...

Feeling much better thank you Mema Jo.

This is just so exciting about our eagles.

Suzanne said...

Ewwwie in osprey nest.

Time for me to hit the road. If it is snowy or ICY tomorrow, I will NOT be in. Please don't worry, I have to make a decision when I get up, because the powers that be are not up yet, much less make a decision. Course I get up in the middle of the night, so I wouldn't expect anyone to be up! But if it's snowing or icy when I get up (0045), and go outside to feed the kitties (0100), I'm gonna call in and go back to bed.

Everyone have a great eagle day. Hope Sharon's procedure went well, and hope everyone is feeling better and healing.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Well, I am home and they didn't do the procedure. The doctor wants to see the actual films from Charlottesville before he does anything. So, I have to call back on Wednesday to see if they got the films yet. May not have to have it done but more will be revealed.

MEMA Jo said...

Relieved to hear from you, Sharon
Hope there is good news for you!

wvgal_dana said...

Humm I would have thought they would have already had gotten the films from Charlottesville. Well sorry more waiting but yes dr. does need to see what the film showed.

Sharon on your new pic left to right. Who is who?

wvgal_dana said...

My sisters doggie is very little 1 lb. 9 ozs. He was the rut. She took him to Vet Saturday met her daughter there that got his brother. His brother and other brother beat my sisters puppy up all the time.
This is funny they put them on the floor (vet was busy) and sisters puppy got the best of his brother lol..me might be little. But one on one I got you bro...lolGlad to say Vet said he is in good health.

paula eaglet momster said...

Still could only see 2 of the 3.....

wvgal_dana said...

Going out bbl

normabyrd said...

HEY SHARON!!---Glad you are home & PRAY it won't be necessary to have the procedure---after the Dr. sees the UVA Hosp.'s films----What do you think of the 3 eggs?----I thought that would make you SMILE!!
WE LOVE YOU----STAY COOL!---Forgot to wish MATTIE a Happy Birthday!!!Sorry it's a DAY early---Right?---Does that mean she gets TWO CAKES!!!-----

mauley said...

Sharon, please keep us informed. So glad to hear from you so quickly. That just gives us more prayer time until you go back. I am praying that it is gone completely when you go back, and I am confessing that. ((((Shurnlea)))

mauley said...

If Mattie gets two cakes, I'm in on the one with the most frosting.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Yes, Mattie will have 2 cakes. She had the one yesterday and tomorrow we are making her one.

I am tickled with the 3 eggs although I was pretty happy with 2, less stress that way! :):):)

In the picture, from left to right, is me, Beverly and Donna.

normabyrd said...

EAGLE---CO cam

normabyrd said...

SHARON----That's GREAT! MATTIE gets TWO cakes!!!---COOL---I was teasing when I asked!----I am delighted to see 3 eggs-----It would have been so BORING last year without SPUNKY--ho! ho!---She was every one's favorite---

paula eaglet momster said...

Anyone get a good look just now??

MEMA Jo said...

No, I didn't Paula.. what did you see? All 3?
I didn't say I was leaving but had to be out & about for an hour.
I hope the little Princess is waking up - she is scratching & stretching &
rubbing her eyes. Would like a little view of some playful movements in between watching OUR eagles.

MEMA Jo said...

MEMA Jo said...

MEMA Jo said...

Both OUR eagles in OUR nest

MEMA Jo said...

Too late - but get a look at those eggs.

I think our Belle is filling her belly again from whatever Liberty
brought in.

MEMA Jo said...

I did send the pic on email through Momsters -
did you get it Paula cause I just forwarded the whole message -- I don't know how to attach a picture on a new message DUH...

paula eaglet momster said...

Thanks, Glo. I put the pic on MOmsters


Lunchtime and 3 clear eggs!!!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Got only your link Jo, Glo sent me pic and I am posting new pictures too, now.

MEMA Jo said...

Paula I was able to open the attachment on the momster email message and get the picture. I hoped everyone could do that - if you don't think it worked for them would you send the pic on another email, please. Thanx

Mits said...

EAGLE at CO.

paula eaglet momster said...

OH, Sorry Jo,,,,I scrolled down in the email and the picture is there...I had only seen the link to Glo's blog and thought that's what you sent.

Mits said...

Wonder if eagle is going to spend the night in MAINE?

Mits said...

VA is back up.

paula eaglet momster said...

Eagle still laying in nest at Maine

paula eaglet momster said...

Just turned eggs.

MEMA Jo said...

I like the close up on the ME cam
I am glad though that they kept the
2 limbs visible - that is where they sometimes sit before take off.

Mits - you're lucky - I still can't get the VA cam to come on... It flickers and I think it's coming on but it hasn't yet.

Mits said...

JO, VA is gone again.

Mits said...

Some snowflakes are coming down here now.

MEMA Jo said...

Keep them down there! Tai loves them lol

Mits did you see my comment near the top that I turn on WildWatch & I actually saw the owl sitting outside the burrow this morning!!!
I guess I am a believer now about that cam being a live feed! I also read the articles on their site & looked at many many videos. Thanx

normabyrd said...

LOOK at BUTA BUTA---She climbed out of the BAMBOO ROOM through the opening & is so PROUD of herself---A little DOLL--

MEMA Jo said...

Buta Buta is wide awake now...& I don't even think the camera can find her right now. It's bamboo time

MEMA Jo said...

I really think she is back in the far corner behind the Bamboo and is climbing the fenced wall....

normabyrd said...

I haven't been able to get the NORFOLK cam to open all day either---Think it's going to---but doesn't----

Mits said...

Yes, Jo I did, forgot to mention it to you...how lucky...been turning it on every now and then, but no owls in sight. I try to keep the snow right over the zoo for Tai:).

glo said...

Well I'm back and eating my comfort food. Can't get prepared to early is my motto lOL. Looks like MaMa ME could be settling in.

normabyrd said...

BUTA just crawled out of the bamboo through a shute (sp) a min. ago into a room alone---now they have her covered w/bamboo----We rarely see her when she isn't asleep or under bamboo---POOR BABY!

MEMA Jo said...

I think ButaButa is trying to untangle herself out of the large piece of bamboo she pulled on herself. lol

normabyrd said...

MITS---Have you seen snow flakes---or are you kidding---It certainly smells like SNOW---Have meeting scheduled this evening---Just sent a note--Bad weather scares me to death---

Mits said...

Maine is up, looks like she wants out.

normabyrd said...

SORRY KIDS---I reading the blog backward----I saw the OWL outside this a.m. too----And what kind of Owl in cam No. 1---Is she nesting or what?---

MEMA Jo said...

Norma Your question as to who was nesting....do you mean that burrowing owl or the Maine eagle.

normabyrd said...

BUTA is out of the jungle--But can't see where she is now---went toward LUN LUN---

Mits said...

Snowflakes have stopped.:)

normabyrd said...

JO--I mean the other owl that is inside---Cam #1---You can't see her
very well----

MEMA Jo said...

Kent Eagle Cam 1

normabyrd said...

I think the ME nest is one of my favorite----MITS & talked about that & decided ME was a week behind ours-----

normabyrd said...

BEAUTIFUL EAGLE in the tree in cam #1---KENT

normabyrd said...

BUTA is attempting to go through the window again---Watching those little black legs tickles me so!

MEMA Jo said...

ButaButa playing on the door step

Beautiful cam pic of the Kent Eagle

I bet it is supper time at OUR nest - looking around alot.

Norma I only saw the 1 owl outside -

MEMA Jo said...

Buta Buta went BOOM off
the step onto her back BUT she is right back from where she fell.

paula eaglet momster said...

All gone in Maine

normabyrd said...

STORM WARNING on Hagerstown TV---This eve through Wed.---What co. are you all in---Wash, Co. MD--Several VA Counties---Eastern Panhandle, WV---That would cover Romney, Martinsburg & SHEPHERDSTOWN---Need an umbrella for LIB & BELLE???

MEMA Jo said...

ByeBye ButaButa!

MEMA Jo said...

OUR EAGLE IS IN A STANDING POSITION but can't see eggs just yet

Mits said...

Jo, there is an owl on the WDFW site that is in a nesting box. Does a lot of sleeping. Owl cam #1.

MEMA Jo said...

OUT NEST HAS NO EAGLES IN IT

Mits said...

Where did Belle go??

Mits said...

Ok, shes back.

MEMA Jo said...

Don't know what that was all about..

normabyrd said...

MITS---That the owl I am talking about----It is always sleeping--

MEMA Jo said...

Ok Mits -I understand what Norma was
saying about Cam 1 - Different cams.

MEMA Jo said...

I think our eagles made a switch..
They usually sit up on the branch above the nest if you remember the pictures.

MEMA Jo said...

MITS NORMA

Now go to Kent & click on Burrowing Owl HE IS THERE AGAIN

normabyrd said...

Just witnessed a "poop shoot"--not like our eagles---This was MEI---it would be called "BIG poop shoot"

MEMA Jo said...
