Thanks for the new thread, Steven, hope you are feeling better today.
Jo, my sister could not figure out the tune either. You need your grandchildren to look at it.
Eagles in and out at ME.
Maine eagle is really enjoying breakfast..
EAGLES AT ALL THE CALIFORNIA NEST.
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.
Turned it off at 12:30 a.m., need to stop puter and TV earlier, must rev up my 2 brain cells too much:)
Liberty (?) has changed position. I guess I missed the turning of the eggs.
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---
Can't believe that in 4 or 5 days Blackwater could have a chick!!
Dawn starting to break at KENT, this is the neat part watching the sun rise over the nest.
Good Morning NormaMits 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.
WOW BOTH EAGLE AT NE
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"
Yes, Jo, that is something to look forward to, Suzanne will be really excited.
EGG TURNING OUR NEST.
Kent sunrise is very pretty on Cam 1
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???
Think, Jo guessed that one last night???
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 oneagletmomsters.blogspot.comor just click on my name. It is last night's switch of Liberty & Belle at 6:30 pm.
GOGGLED----It's "with his ears cut short & his tail cut long---Ring a bell?
BEAUTIFUL EAGLE at CO---looking at her back----
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.
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
EEEWWWIIIEEE AT BW.
BOTH AT OUR NEST.
How about that WENEST! I was wondering if the male mated with both gals! BOTH EAGLES IN OUR NEST
Yep Mits and he is a big one!!! EEEWWWIIIEEE
Just had a switch at our nest
Going over to watch Paula's video.
Good for Speedy at WE...he's THE MAN!!!! Belle finally got to sit on eggs..took some pics.
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!
On your video from last night , it looks like Belle was gently tapping Lib to get up.
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.?????
Paula, did Dianna, lay it in the same nest bowl? Is the Tiger on your forum, the same one from the Seattle osprey cam?
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.
GLO, the sunrise at Kent Video was beautiful!
I need to get some breakfast food before it turns into Brunch...BBL
Yup, Mits the eggs are laying side by side. And No, that is not THAT Tiger.
Paula what place are you talking about "eggs laying side by side"??
The west end nest in California, Dana. Dianna laid her egg right nest to Wrays, in the same nest bowl.
Morning Glo we are suppose to get 'bad weather here too' yuck
Paula....that is one cool nest, that whole story is amazing...you have some excellent photos on that forum.:):):).
Paula - what is FLUFF?
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!
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..email@example.com.I am excited to find this blog, and enjoy meeting all of you.
Fluff is grass!
Looks as though Tai is napping out in the yard on the snow covered ground.
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?
Links off of eagletmomsters.comhttp://www.eagletmomsters.com/links.htmlor go to beakspeak.com
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.
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.
HELLO, GENIE, AND WELCOME:):):)
BTW, they do have a forum for the Maine cam, too. If you want the link I can post it here.
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.:).
WELCOME GENIE----TO THE EAGLE BUDDIES---
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!
I am leaving you all & heading to the showers! BBL
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.
Both eagles in CO
Good for you Dana. About the media player and the mockingbird :)
I like that forum, Mits, because the biologist answers questions. Have you checked out that section yet? "What are your questions?"
I think it was Belle turning eggs at our nest.SC eagles beautiful sound and wings flew out of nest.
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). ( :
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.
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.
Where's Belle eggs??????
Is she rolling them out of the deepnest of the nest????
It looked like she was rolling them up the side of the nest. Then she laid down on them.
Both eagles in Norfolk yep shift change.
2 eagles at 2 h
Sorry that was WE 2 eagles got excited
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!
The CO nest is so close---it cuts off most of the EAGLE sometimes---
Turning our eggs.
Look at all the fluff that NE eagles have put in their nest - they covered the snow with it last time.
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.
On the CO (FtStVrain) site - go to the OWL CAM. That is a very big owl!
Jo, CO, has a side view cam amd a look down into cam, it changes automatically every few minutes.
CO site again - I see a Kestrel & a Falcon........ Mits, are you by any chance following me on these cams?
WOW...That's a BIG OWL....
There is a kestrel in the cam at CO.
CO is on the side view now, guess they really want you to see the action, when the season starts.
Eagle at thnest. Looks like he isstuck in the fluff!!! lol I can't see his feet......The VA egg well is sooooooooo deepLooks like she is down in the hole!
Egg turning at OUR nest
One of our eagles must have moved that large stick that was so close to the egg well.
Egg turning time at wenest also
You can barely see the eggs in VA, when they turn them.
2 EAGLES AT CO.
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...
I've been out in CA - Just returned.You're right Glo - So many nests.Glad you caught the video at NE
Eggs in view at BW Paula - what was 5000
BW site went to a black screen...Hope it refreshes back to normal
OK Back to normal at BW I see a new sprig of pine
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...............
Yes,JoEllen...hear you loud an clear:).
Lisa, has a beautiful Bob Quinn photo on BW eagle site today, with explanation of eagle feathers.
Jo - 5000 posts!
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......
W A X
LOL.... your a big weiner of wax. Congrats Paula, on your # 5,000:).
Jo and Mits, Look at the names on the left. Under the name is the number of posts. I didn't have 5000.
Mits, Are you calling Jo a Hot Dog? LOL :)
I would think he is, since it hasn't been on in an hour...but it did flicker about 1/2 hour ago...
I would not do that , Paula:):):):)!
both in OUR NEST.
JUST 1 NOW.
I bet you would do that, Mits, but you thought I was lurking. lol
You a lurker:):):)...never!
WENEST on now - Reception not great if it's a new battery. Maybe it will clear up soon.
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
We nest back up, but not any better. Not sure if the good Dr. has been there yet or not.
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.
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
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
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.
Paula, I didn't know about the male being new to WE. You think the original male had more then he cared to handle.
Eagle in Maine, eating.
Kent, cam 1, has eagle.Jim
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!;)
WINDY EAGLES IN MAINE.
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 .
EAGLE AT KENT CAM ON BRANCH.
EAGLES ALL GONE AT KENT.
BOTH EAGLES OUR NEST.
LIB JUST LEFT AND BELLE IS BACK.
Eagle at CO.
PAULA, WE, looks pretty clear now
All gone at KENT.
#81 at TH.
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
Jim, our live-feed comes and goes, it was on yesterday. Yes, I was watching the eagle at TH moving the big stick.
EAGLES AT KENT.
WORKING ON THE NEST BOWL.
STAR is testing the nest.
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.
Going to call it a day....Good Night All My Eagle BuddiesPleasant dreams & peaceful sleepPrayers being said for everyone
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
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.
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.
It was sleet here first then it turned to snow later it is suppose to turn back to sleet.
Tai is just so happy outside laying on his back eating bamboo. In the lite snow they are getting so far.
BW eagle nest has no snow
