Thanks for the new thread, Steven, hope you are feeling better today.

Mits said...

Jo, my sister could not figure out the tune either. You need your grandchildren to look at it.

Mits said...

Eagles in and out at ME.

Mits said...

Maine eagle is really enjoying breakfast..

Mits said...

EAGLES AT ALL THE CALIFORNIA NEST.

MEMA Jo said...

Good Morning again. Thanks for the new thread Steve and I hope you are feeling a bit better.
Hi Mits..thanks for the heads up.This is the 2nd time in the history of this blog that I've gotten on before you - Too much late TV, gal.

Saw the ME eagle earlier - was lying down in the nest when first came on & I thought maybe 'nesting' but then he/she was up & about.

Mits said...

Turned it off at 12:30 a.m., need to stop puter and TV earlier, must rev up my 2 brain cells too much:)

MEMA Jo said...

Liberty (?) has changed position. I guess I missed the turning of the eggs.

normabyrd said...

GOOD A.M. EAGLE BUDDIES--MITS & MEMA JO----I just saw a eagle at NE land in the nest & is eating something----What's happening---must read other blog---

MEMA Jo said...

Can't believe that in 4 or 5 days Blackwater could have a chick!!

Mits said...

Dawn starting to break at KENT, this is the neat part watching the sun rise over the nest.

MEMA Jo said...

Good Morning Norma

Mits said the ME eagle is there.
Must be chow time.

Our eagle cam is up - but live feed wasn't up as of an hour ago.

MEMA Jo said...

WOW BOTH EAGLE AT NE

MEMA Jo said...

Of course one just flew up in the tree and now there is one.

Norma NEED YOUR EXPERTISE

Go to the Atlanta Panda cam updates for Friday. Jay wrote a poem & he says we should all know the tune
None of us can "Name That Tune"

Mits said...

Yes, Jo, that is something to look forward to, Suzanne will be really excited.

Mits said...

EGG TURNING OUR NEST.

MEMA Jo said...

Kent sunrise is very pretty on Cam 1

normabyrd said...

THE GREAT NORMABYRD WHO KNOWS ALL--ho!----Thinks the song is--"Oh Where, oh where has my little dog gone---oh where---oh where can he be---with his tail cut short & ____cut long---etc.----What do you all think???

Mits said...

Think, Jo guessed that one last night???

paula eaglet momster said...

Morning, all! Hope you are feeling better Steve!

I see we are back to the just the 30 second cam. I put a new video on

eagletmomsters.blogspot.com

or just click on my name. It is last night's switch of Liberty & Belle at 6:30 pm.

normabyrd said...

GOGGLED----It's "with his ears cut short & his tail cut long---Ring a bell?

normabyrd said...

BEAUTIFUL EAGLE at CO---looking at her back----

Mits said...

Great video, PAULA, I missed it last night, love the way Belle wanting in and Lib seemed to want to stay...cool how you have made it soo easy to view your videos. Just one click and your in.

paula eaglet momster said...

BTW, The West end nest now has 2 eggs. The other female, Dianna w/ the 69 on her wings, laid an egg last night, probably around 5:30

Mits said...

EEEWWWIIIEEE AT BW.

Mits said...

BOTH AT OUR NEST.

MEMA Jo said...

How about that WENEST! I was wondering if the male mated with both gals!

BOTH EAGLES IN OUR NEST

MEMA Jo said...

Yep Mits and he is a big one!!!
EEEWWWIIIEEE

paula eaglet momster said...

Just had a switch at our nest

MEMA Jo said...

Going over to watch Paula's video.

Mits said...

Good for Speedy at WE...he's THE MAN!!!! Belle finally got to sit on eggs..took some pics.

paula eaglet momster said...

Too bad video isn't running today. Would have made a good video. I tried to do one from the egg turning yesterday afternoon....but the quality was too poor. Hopefully we will get an opportunity to see a switch and egg turning on the live feed when it is not so windy or dark out!

Mits said...

On your video from last night , it looks like Belle was gently tapping Lib to get up.

wvgal_dana said...

Thank you Steven for the new thread sure hope you are on the way to getting better.

Hi Mits, Jo, Paula, and Norma morning to you all and lurkers.

Neat cams today.

Bad weather heading our way sleet and freezing rain.

Anyone have a canopy we can put over Belle and Liberty. Maybe also the BW nest.?????

Mits said...

Paula, did Dianna, lay it in the same nest bowl? Is the Tiger on your forum, the same one from the Seattle osprey cam?

glo said...

Good morning..Hope your day goes well. Under serious weather warnings here so not sure what the weekend holds for me. Maybe they will be wrong. ANyway enjoying the cams while I can. Those on FeedBlitz know there are great videos from yesterday available at the NCTC Eagles Of Shepherdstown Blogsite, and the For the Love Of Eagles Blog as well. It was a wonderful day for live nest viewing yesterday. Click on my name and have a look see.

MEMA Jo said...

GLO, the sunrise at Kent Video was beautiful!

MEMA Jo said...

I need to get some breakfast food before it turns into Brunch...BBL

paula eaglet momster said...

Yup, Mits the eggs are laying side by side. And No, that is not THAT Tiger.

wvgal_dana said...

Paula what place are you talking about "eggs laying side by side"??

paula eaglet momster said...

The west end nest in California, Dana. Dianna laid her egg right nest to Wrays, in the same nest bowl.

wvgal_dana said...

Morning Glo we are suppose to get 'bad weather here too' yuck

Mits said...

Paula....that is one cool nest, that whole story is amazing...you have some excellent photos on that forum.:):):).

MEMA Jo said...

Paula - what is FLUFF?

MEMA Jo said...

I think on the CO cam that the eagle is on the right side of the nest.
I do wish that cam would back up a little!

genie616 said...

Hi, this is my first time to read the blog. I am a real eagle fanatic and have the sites for eagles nest at Blackwater from Africam and the ones at Kent. But I saw several others mentioned...Maine, California, NE. Would it be possible to post a complee list of the sites...or email it to me..genie616@aol.com.

I am excited to find this blog, and enjoy meeting all of you.

paula eaglet momster said...

Fluff is grass!

MEMA Jo said...

Looks as though Tai is napping out in the yard on the snow covered ground.

wvgal_dana said...

ty Paula I took a guess and went to that site and even into the forum to read some. I was really surprised by all the great pictures. That is a neat site.
Didn't read all of the forum.

Have you been watching that site since back in 06?

paula eaglet momster said...

Links off of eagletmomsters.com

http://www.eagletmomsters.com/links.html

or go to

beakspeak.com

wvgal_dana said...

Hi genie616 nice to see you in here. Paula's answer there at that link has alot if not all the links. Enjoy and come in again.

paula eaglet momster said...

Dana,
I knew of those nests last year - they have been on the momsters links for ages. But I couldn't ever get on to see them last year, and when I did, it seemed like the quality was terrible.

I never knew they had a forum until last October. I only found it through a link to my website. They didn't have the link on the page they do now. They started their forum in June, right before they tagged the eaglet (A-49) in the Santa Cruz nest. I have been watching those nests since back in October, tho.

Mits said...

HELLO, GENIE, AND WELCOME:):):)

paula eaglet momster said...

BTW, they do have a forum for the Maine cam, too. If you want the link I can post it here.

Mits said...

PAULA the channel island forum is very similar to the forum of the Harrisburg falcon forum, I like that your can read the remarks and not have to join in, and everyone does a great job of the picture taking, very informative too.:).

normabyrd said...

WELCOME GENIE----TO THE EAGLE BUDDIES---

MEMA Jo said...

Thanks for the important info about the fluff, Paula. I thought it meant grass but for some reason I also thought it may have meant the breast feathers they pluck! DUH!
Hi Genie Just sent you an email.
Hopefully you will join our Momsters group


There you are Norma - didn't know if you got kicked out or not!

MEMA Jo said...

I am leaving you all & heading to the showers! BBL

wvgal_dana said...

Well for some reason I got it to finally work. I tried before with no avail. I got SC into windows media player so I can have Maine in winamp. Happy now. ( :

I did put out a banana peel. I do have a Mockingbird. During last summer he try to make his nest under my small grill on our deck. It was so funny went out and all these sticks all over the porch.
Ed asking me and I'm asking Ed and the Mockingbird is laughing at us.

So I know he is around (with a mate) somewhere maybe he will spot the banana peel.

wvgal_dana said...

Both eagles in CO

paula eaglet momster said...

Good for you Dana. About the media player and the mockingbird :)

paula eaglet momster said...

I like that forum, Mits, because the biologist answers questions. Have you checked out that section yet? "What are your questions?"

wvgal_dana said...

I think it was Belle turning eggs at our nest.

SC eagles beautiful sound and wings flew out of nest.

wvgal_dana said...

We have so may cats in the area. hee hee I put a thumb tact through it with the inside of peel up and put it on railing. Hoping to see birdie or Mockingbird eating it.
Please Please (that's a prayer). ( :

Mits said...

Not yet, but Dr. Peter Sharpe did, answer me when I saw the replay of him several years ago, taking the eggs out of the nest. He was nearby checking the cam and just like you said that day was doing a replay.

wvgal_dana said...

I want to get this spring a feeder that hangs off the railing. That way the feeder isn't into the yards where the dogs are. It has to be up so I can just walk on ramp to put seed in it. So we can sit in our kitchen. It has 3 great windows at sitting level to see from. I miss my hummingbirds too. I'll be thinking on that one. I want to put JO's plant on table on my porch.

wvgal_dana said...

Where's Belle eggs??????

wvgal_dana said...

Is she rolling them out of the deepnest of the nest????

wvgal_dana said...

It looked like she was rolling them up the side of the nest. Then she laid down on them.

wvgal_dana said...

Both eagles in Norfolk yep shift change.

wvgal_dana said...

2 eagles at 2 h

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry that was WE 2 eagles got excited

normabyrd said...

MEMAJO---No I didn't get shut out--Saturday is usually the day all the kids check in----sometime more than once---ho!---But I LOVE 'EM!
I did finally get to see the eagle in the SC nest---Now that is a SIGHT---The background colors--WOW!---DANA---You are CLEVER---thumb tacking the banana peel!! ho!

normabyrd said...

The CO nest is so close---it cuts off most of the EAGLE sometimes---

Mits said...

Turning our eggs.

MEMA Jo said...

Look at all the fluff that NE eagles have put in their nest - they covered the snow with it last time.

MEMA Jo said...

CO now has a good view of the nest - Must be from the other cam they have. Oh Yes, The eagle is in the nest.

MEMA Jo said...

On the CO (FtStVrain) site - go to the OWL CAM. That is a very big owl!

Mits said...

Jo, CO, has a side view cam amd a look down into cam, it changes automatically every few minutes.

MEMA Jo said...

CO site again - I see a Kestrel & a Falcon........

Mits, are you by any chance following me on these cams?

Mits said...

WOW...That's a BIG OWL....

Mits said...

There is a kestrel in the cam at CO.

Mits said...

CO is on the side view now, guess they really want you to see the action, when the season starts.

MEMA Jo said...

Eagle at thnest. Looks like he is
stuck in the fluff!!! lol
I can't see his feet......
The VA egg well is sooooooooo deep
Looks like she is down in the hole!

MEMA Jo said...

Egg turning at OUR nest

MEMA Jo said...

One of our eagles must have moved that large stick that was so close to the egg well.

MEMA Jo said...

Egg turning time at wenest also

Mits said...

You can barely see the eggs in VA, when they turn them.

Mits said...

2 EAGLES AT CO.

glo said...

I would say that mama eagle to be in ME is definitely chowing down these days...back at the nest eating again.

I caught the greatest Sticky Situation yet at nE this morning..it will be on the For the Love of Eagles Blitz tomorrow am...made me laugh out loud at the antics those two pulled for a few secs this morning :)

Such awesome birds...so many eagles, so many nests so little time...

MEMA Jo said...

I've been out in CA - Just returned.

You're right Glo - So many nests.
Glad you caught the video at NE

MEMA Jo said...

Eggs in view at BW





Paula - what was 5000

MEMA Jo said...

BW site went to a black screen...
Hope it refreshes back to normal

MEMA Jo said...

OK Back to normal at BW
I see a new sprig of pine

MEMA Jo said...

Ok all you lurkers - Hear Me Out!

I am going to 5;00 Mass & then meeting Catonsville family for dinner.

Going now to straighten up the house.
Guess I'll check in before I leave & then return around 9:00pm.

Don't say I didn't tell you where I am...............

Mits said...

Yes,JoEllen...hear you loud an clear:).

Mits said...

Lisa, has a beautiful Bob Quinn photo on BW eagle site today, with explanation of eagle feathers.

paula eaglet momster said...

Jo - 5000 posts!

MEMA Jo said...

Sneaking back in
Paula - how did you know it was #5000.
I think the Dr is changing the batteries at we now as the screen has No Video......

MEMA Jo said...

W A X

Mits said...

LOL.... your a big weiner of wax. Congrats Paula, on your # 5,000:).

paula eaglet momster said...

Jo and Mits,
Look at the names on the left. Under the name is the number of posts. I didn't have 5000.

paula eaglet momster said...

Mits,
Are you calling Jo a Hot Dog? LOL :)

paula eaglet momster said...

I would think he is, since it hasn't been on in an hour...but it did flicker about 1/2 hour ago...

Mits said...

I would not do that , Paula:):):):)!

Mits said...

both in OUR NEST.

Mits said...

JUST 1 NOW.

MEMA Jo said...

I bet you would do that, Mits, but you thought I was lurking. lol

Mits said...

You a lurker:):):)...never!

MEMA Jo said...

WENEST on now - Reception not great if it's a new battery. Maybe it will clear up soon.

movin said...

Good Saturday watching to you all....

Did I deduce rightly from your comments that there is a second egg at the West End Nest (no video so far today) now, which was laid by the second female??

I've been wondering forever how that affair works...even e-mailed once, but didn't get a reply to that question.

I think they only had one egg in previous years, which was more confusing.

Anybody understand it better than I??

Jim

paula eaglet momster said...

We nest back up, but not any better. Not sure if the good Dr. has been there yet or not.

paula eaglet momster said...

Jim,
Last year at the WE nest, each female laid 2 eggs. The male that is there mates w/ both the females.

So far, we believe each female has laid one egg each, for a total of two eggs.

movin said...

Missed Paula's initial comment, or I wouldn't have had to deduce so much.

Like to know what you know about the arrangement anyway.

Jim

movin said...

Thanks, Paula...didn't know they had 4 eggs last year, since only 1 chick was fostered to them.

That chick had a broken leg at banding time and was removed to rehab. So I assumed, incorrectly, that they had only laid a single egg.

Happy Saturday,
Jim

paula eaglet momster said...

The WE nest, for some time, has had 2 females and 1 male. There is only one other on the internet w/ such an arrangement. It is not unknown, however, in the eagle world. They all share the nesting duties and such. Last year the original male disappeared, and the new male, 01, appeared. He is now part of the WE trio.

MEMA Jo said...

Paula, I didn't know about the male being new to WE. You think the original male had more then he cared to handle.

paula eaglet momster said...

Eagle in Maine, eating.

MEMA Jo said...

BBL

movin said...

Kent, cam 1, has eagle.
Jim

paula eaglet momster said...

They don't know what happened to him. Never found his body or anything. I think he was 25, so he probably just died of old age. The females are 20. 01 is only 7 years old. (you go, guy!) Truly Superman!
;)

Mits said...

WINDY EAGLES IN MAINE.

glo said...

weather is very bad here. I am going to close down my desktop now as powere is blinking off and on. I have already uploaded a really cute video from NE this morning as I fear i will lose power and not be able to do it tonight. Hope you will enjoy. Will be on my laptop some later as long as I can. The will be sitting by my fireplace if I need to with two dogs and waitng for the storm to end. Nice hot meal in crock pot...gonna feed pooches and me..rally the flashlight and candles Have a good evening. i would do anything to nOT see this head to Shepherdstown but out of my hands .

Mits said...

EAGLE AT KENT CAM ON BRANCH.

Mits said...

EAGLES ALL GONE AT KENT.

Mits said...

BOTH EAGLES OUR NEST.

Mits said...

LIB JUST LEFT AND BELLE IS BACK.

Mits said...

Eagle at CO.

Mits said...

PAULA, WE, looks pretty clear now

Mits said...

All gone at KENT.

Mits said...

#81 at TH.

movin said...

Not too bad a day, but that West End cam is going to drive me crazy!

This cam seems to be working pretty well now, but has anyone seen or heard anything about the video cam?? I have not been able to get it to open this season yet.

I saw the male (big bird, thought it was the female until I saw the number) at the Two Harbors nest bring in a large branch and try to position it on the left side of the picture not long ago. Their nest is getting much more "built" this year, instead of relying on the stone construction of the site.

Better do some chore stuff for now...take it easy.

Jim

Mits said...

Jim, our live-feed comes and goes, it was on yesterday. Yes, I was watching the eagle at TH moving the big stick.

Mits said...

EAGLES AT KENT.

Mits said...

WORKING ON THE NEST BOWL.

Mits said...

STAR is testing the nest.

MEMA Jo said...

I am back home now for the evening. Looks as though some TV shows are taking precedence her tonight. That is ok because soon everyone will be here watching new eaglets.
Glo I hope that storms moves out of your area quickly. I dislike just waiting to see if the power is going to go out.
Didn't get to look at WE to see if there is a better pic... Going over to play games after I watch Glo's video.

MEMA Jo said...

Going to call it a day....

Good Night All My Eagle Buddies
Pleasant dreams & peaceful sleep
Prayers being said for everyone

movin said...

Have a good night/GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY!!

Thanks, Mits...gives me hope of getting through to the video some day.

Everyone enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Jim

floralgirl said...

Well, as you can see from the cam pic, it's snowing here now. Poor eagle is covered. But at least right now it's snow not ice. Looks like it's going to be a little of everything here today, snow, ice, sleet.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning eagle watcher friends.

Our Belle is in the nest she was covered with snow. She had once already shook snow off. Within a short while; cause we're expecting 2-4 inches then more sleet. Belle must have the instincts that it is going to be a "bad storm".
Our Belle protecting her eggs.

I started a new album to add pics to for Feb 25 - March 3. Paula will have to more it please cause right now it is at the end of albums. Add your snap shots of this marvelous eagle careing for her eggs in a show storm.

wvgal_dana said...

It was sleet here first then it turned to snow later it is suppose to turn back to sleet.

wvgal_dana said...

Tai is just so happy outside laying on his back eating bamboo. In the lite snow they are getting so far.

wvgal_dana said...

BW eagle nest has no snow
