first one. Come on and fix the camera
Thank you, Steven! We are waiting patiently! Any sightings of the eagles around the nest lately? Inquiring minds want to know.
Thank you Steve - especially for the news sooncomment you made! Here is my message from previous thread. Hello - all my friends! FUll house here these am hours. Phone calls made & I am expecting calls to be returned from Steve & John (IT)But Angie & I talked for some time even though she had no info for me about the part. Yesterday as she passed through the guard station HE, the guard - bless his heart I wish I had his number - told her that had she been just a few minutes sooner she would have seen one of OUR eagles fly overhead. Steve does return calls so I will update as soon as that happens.Angie thinks it would be right after lunch.Tuesday, February 06, 2007 8:44:00 AM

Now I think I know that WVUAG is from where I thought!!! Maybe Sorry Dana! Here you're getting all the undo credit! lol
Hi wvuag see you are patiently waiting ont he news and the camera fix too. I think there's an awfully good chance our Belle will be there at the nest when the cam comes back on.
Please if I type wrong or slow forgive me. I had to be able to layu down. My backk and legs. I'm tireed of not getting to see cams.So I moved my sbed across room and laying oddly to be able to see cams and type. So be patient with me until I can get the hang of it. Beliebe me you dont down with keybord proped up how many mistakes I have already erased.
Is it soon yet? LOL
I you alls lights out in Buta Butas cam???
Hope I didn't scare everyone away.There's Buta Buta such a princess
The Little Princess does a lot of fall down, go boom!!
2 eagles at BW...one may be eating
Hope Tai doesn't fall down and go boom from that tree.
She seems content playing with the bamboo though. Love her different posses.
oh my no one on the eggs at BW!
too cold ok back on good
The eggs are not being set upon! BW
WOW Cold eggs won't do! The Lord is on them!
Dana You get comfortable & don't pay much attention to your typos -you know we all have Great Minds
Oh, yeah, I might be riding the short bus, but I do have a great mind! That e-mail proved it.
Jo is that Lord BW or did you mean there was a "halaloua" in that statement?
I sure can't say much good about our ButaButa cam. It seems to be skipping frames or something. Don't think it is my vision but it could be my PC lolI need to step away from here for a few.... BBL By the way: Maybe I won't get a return call since Steve's new thread & comment were made right after my call to him. Hopefully he will publish some info for all.
I knew I should have typed theBW after 'the Lord'! But then you never know whois keeping those eggs warmed!
OH NO! There is a blue streak inthe BW cam .....
It disappeared - sure hope it doesn't come back... Now for sure BBL
Mema Jo, are you seeing things?? NOT MORE "BLUE" SCREENS!!!!! YIKES!!
One of my favorite all time games for you to play free online hereYou know sometimes you got to pass time waiting on stuff!!!http://www.neave.com/games/frogger/

DEFINITION OF SOON..."in the near future".
Well IT DOESN"T MEAN SOON ENOUGH!
SHORTLY, PRESENTLY, BEFORE LONG
I LOVE GOOGLE:).
SOON, it will spring:):). SOONER RATHER THAN LATER:).
Soon as in today? tomorrow? next week?
Eagle in Maine
SOON ENOUGH, O WAX QUEEN....
Isn't that the sweetest sound the eagles make..think i just heard a loon also.
Yes Mits its the most beautiful bird call I ever hear...and not because I'm partial to eagles, but becasue their call is most beautiful to me anyway.
I love to hear all birds, but those eagles are just music to my ears:).
EAGLE AT TH....

One eagle at NE eating.
OK I'LL ASK AGAIN IS EVERYONES BUTA BUTA CAM DARK??????
ME is really a beautiful nest especially when both eagles are in in.
I wonder if the lady in Maine is going to stay in the nest all night tonight??????????????
YES YES YES It is dark on BUTA BUTA'S cam - But she is lying rightthere on the floor. Sorry took me so long to answer you I was watching eagles while the watching was good
Certainly looks as though ME couple is getting that nest bed ready!!!And tonight we can see if they are there due to the infra red lighting...
DANA, it only looks dark because she is right next to that wall, there is a ton of natural light streaming in.
Maine Momma really looks like she is ready to drop an egg or two.
What an awesome sight that is with the two of them at Maine.
Well, it is now 3:59pm - Sorry to report that I have not received any phone calls. My line was briefly busy throughout the day - but for short periods of time. I am headed out of here at 4:15pmTony's Pizza & I forgot to invite Suzanne - she went home before I could catch her!
Why only the natural lighting. They had other lighting before so you could see good. Mits didn't they pay their "electric bill"??
Well the old addage is No news is good news...although I am very disappointed to be leaving for work this evening ow with NO news. All i know to say right now is Thank You maine we do have some beautiufl eagles to watch as we wait for our news on this cam/part we need to once again enjoy liberty and Belle...In our hearts even when they aren't on our monitor!!

I wrote Steve Chase today:02/06/07 03:59 PMSteven, How much lonoger are we going to be in order to have the still and live feed up and running in a "good" viewing? Please write back. HIS ANSWER Tue, 6 Feb 2007 16:37:14 -0500thanks for your note We got the part yesterday PM and the guys worked all afternoon today trying to get things working, to no avail. We are now concerned that the problem may be up the tree, but we don't know yet until they try a few more things in the morning. Please remember that the guys working on the cam have full time jobs doing other things here and are doing their best to make things work. We all want to get it up and running again. best,Steve Steven M.

WELL THAT IS REALLY DISCOURAGING:(
Okay, CAT scan results - the abscess has shrunken in size but it is still there. I am a little bummed about that and not sure what the next course of action will be but I will let you know. MTBR!
Guess WE ARE ALL bummed out, cam issues and Sharon's problem!!Thanks Sharon for the news. We will keep you in our prayers!
Yes Sharon, you are ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS:).
Okay I agree it sounds bad....remember when I didn't want patience...well someone ask for it...I said don't ask for that....so let us just waiting and pray alot that tomorrow brings GOOD NEWS ...
Now that I've said that let me get out my cry ): sniffle sniffletears horn horn (blowing nose) ok we are praying alot tonight that tomorrow brings "better news".
As my hubby always says, "IT IS WHAT IT IS.":)I hate when he says that.:)
see you all tomorrow
Thank you, Dana.
I have returned - Go to Blackwater for new pics & updates on both cams.
Does not look as though our Maine Lady stayed at the nest tonight.Yes, I really thought that this part that was received for the cam was thefix-it-upper. Disappointed to say the least. Thanks Dana for the message from Steve.
I think Lady B had more duck...great pictures and update, as usual!
Well, darn, that's not what I wanted to hear, hope the cam problem is on ground level because if it is up in the tree we will all be up #@%* creek.
ROFLMBO...I knew we could count on you for a good laugh, Megan
Going to watch...HOUSE..BBL.
Went out for a while. The roads are horrific but I made it back home safely. I had to walk up my hill. We didn't even try to make it up! It really sucks to slide sideways back down my hill. It was worth the walk!
I am going to keep the faith that tomorrow is going to bring us good news about our cam!! Your husband is right though, Mits! It is what it is and we are certainly powerless in this.
Hey Ya, good friends. Bummer about cam. We will just have to pray harder and be patient difficult as it is. Sharon, the abcess has shrunk. It will be gone in no time. I just know it. Just hang in there, there is a miracle in the making for you today. Do you feel okay. BBL love you gals
Hello, Eagle land. I thought you could use a smile, and I don't know if you watch Comedy Central at 8:30 eagle time. Stephen Colbear (sp?) has an eagle named after him (Stephen Jr., and the IWS website is tracking him.him. http://www.iws.org/bald_eagles/A46_Maps/A46%20tracking.htmOn tonight's show, Stephen traced his flight to Canada and back to the Washington/Oregon border. Even if you don't follow the show, the tracking is interesting.Please, please I know we're all anxious for news, but I rememer the poor IT people from our former jobs.They're at everybocy's beck and call, and at the mercy of the technology that frustrates us all. Not to mention that it's cold outside where the problems seem to be. Bless them and thanks to them. I hope maybe tomorrow I can gather some news.My son in Bangkok says they're having a serious cold wave: it was 71 last night.
It has started snowing here in the Middletown Valley. Not sure just how much we may get. Guess the school kids are saying their prayers!
Is it snowing in Shepherdstown yetSandra. I am ready to head to Bangkok.
I put a couple of pictures of Liberty and Belle on the eagletmomsters.blogspot.comGood night all.
Good Night Paula. Going over to check them out. Thanks.
Good evening/Good morning!The one new thing I saw today (maybe) is that there does not appear to be an eagle on the nest at Port St. Lucie now...maybe they have finally given up on that first egg.Did anyone else notice that? Also has anyone reported seeing any signs of egg laying on the Shepherdstown nest?Looks like the Santa Cruz pair is making progress on the nest, but they're not on eggs yet either.Have a good Wednesday...Jim
Hi Jim, I looked at the FL nest a few times today. Once she/he was in the nest but all the other times it looked MT. We thought the Maine couple would soon have eggs - really we thought the female was going to stay in the nest tonight. They now have an infrared light & you can view the nest at night. No news on our WV eagles - Steve did send email to Dana - she copied it a little ways up this thread if you care to read. VA cam didn't come up today as we had thought.
I am ready to call it a dayGood night everyonePleasant dreams & peaceful sleepPrayers going up for everyone for all kinds of reasonsSuzanne - hope you made it safe to work
I saw the eagle in FLA a couple of times today. Its snowing and its the fluffy kind of snow very pretty, sparkles like diamonds on the deck:)
GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 7th HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITS
Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur. May tomorrow bring us better news on our cam!
Well, good snowy morning, Guessing Suzanne stayed home due to the weather. Looks like about 2" of snow here, no school-and it's 12°. Going outside to help hubby see if he can get to work-of course this is the only day he has a job this week-and it snowed-murphy's law. Anyway, going to help sweep snow(it is real light and powdery)and feed the birds, they are all out there waiting for food. Kids are going to love the day off, but it isn't snowball snow- sad for them- great for those of us who have to shovel it. Sandra- love the Colbert Report- watch it all the time- funny last night tracking his "son".
Happy Birthday Mits, Hi Megan and a Good Morning to All. Did my share of cold crummy driving in snow and horrible cold yesterday, now off to Stff meeting this morning but it is up to -2 and at least the plows came through during the night. Will check in early this afternnon. How wonderful an eagle Blanket to wrap up in would feel about now LOL and with that thought i'll take my wet noodle to the camera parts store and see if they could maybe order us a stealth ladder and robot just in case that is what we might need.
TO MY DEAR FRIEND MITS --HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR HELEN,HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU -- AND MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY MORE!!!MUCH LOVE IS SENT YOUR WAY ON THIS SPECIAL DAY!!!!
Good morning everybody. I hope you all have a great day!!
Good Morning FriendsHummm does someone have a Birthday today??? Wonder who it can be?????Did get this report yesterday in my mail box:3:15pm Tues. Feb 6th Nilla sent me an email that said: drove by the nest and they both were there in the tree... No sign of anyone working on camera or in the tree fixing it that i could see with my binoculars.
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE. THANKS FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY-WISHES:):):)!. We only got an inch, but it is beautiful. Thanks, Dana for the update from Nilla. Wonder what is going on with "our" eagles??? Temp here is 16°, and winds are calm.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITS!!!!!
In reference to our eagles Liberty and Belle:Well Mits they were either in the nest keeping warm or that could be the " 100 million dollar question ".Deal or no Deal?
Morning Megan you staying warm?? Is there school today?
HellooooooooooooooooIs anybody out thereeeeeeeelol
Thanks, Megan!.....Deal Dana:)! I voted for today for Belle to lay her 1st egg, but, alas, we shall never know for sure. Will we?
FYI...re: the MAINE nest. They fixed their cam last week and went up the tree and removed that large branch, (you can see clearly where they removed it)all while the eagles were there, so if L&B have not laid eggs yet, hope if the problem is outside it can still be fixed.
No School, Dana! I'm here, just finished clearing 700-8oo ft. lane. At least it is a light snow!
I vote for if it's up the tree then get-her-done!!!!!!
Megan I did not have that much to clear but did have an extremely longgg driveway. Now with downsizing no long driveway. Cause neither of us can do that anymore.lol were not "broke down" just need a "little fixing up" lol
CAM 2 at DC show Mei and Tai in the cage wrestling around. Now they are going through cage maybe to outside.
Where oh where has Tai gone Oh where oh where could he be With his white and black cloths Oh where oh where could he be CAm 2 shows him and Mei finally well dang they switched cam not on him now oh cam 1 is now
I agree, Dana, git-er-done....
Can't hardly see Mei and Tai wrestling in the corner in Cam 2. lol snow is blowing
Mits do you hear them in Maine. Some crows, some eagles I heard, but then there are some smaller birds...sounds like a group of smaller ones lol neat.
Now you can see Mei and Tai real good on cam 2 their fur is full of snow lol
There are little birds flying in and out of MAINE nest, sounds like chickadees and titmouses....cool

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU---HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU---HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR CHAMPION EAGLE WATCHER-----HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUUUUUUUUU!WISHING---MANY MORE EAGLES FOR YOU TO PURSUE!MITS---HAVE A HAPPY DAY!PEACE----
DR. DANA OR DR. MITS----Here is what happens to me---(blogger stays at bottom)----It let's me in & I am a "happy camper" for a while----NEXT THING---(blogger still on tool bar)---GOOGLE tells me: INCORRECT PASSWORD----HELP!
Can't tell who is winning the battle at the DC ZOO!!! (ho)---Hardly saw BUTA yesterday awake!!!
Norma what do you type in the 1st part?
THANK YOU NORMA Don't know why it does that? Actually would not let me on this a.m., but I think I typed in incorrect password.
I am not sure who is winning but I do know we have "two snowballs" there playing. lol
DANA -- MITS----I TYPE: normabyrdTHEN PASSWORD:--I can't understand---lets me use the password---sometimes 2--3 hours---Out of blue----"incorrect password"---Then the little RED LETTERS---Busy--check back in later---(something like that)----BLOGGER stays on the bottom---
MITS---How does it feel to be 30?-------ENJOY!
They've done woren the "littlest panda out" sleeping. The princess sleeps while the prince wrestles with Mom.
Did you all see that!! Mei's was dragging her two hind legs pushing Tai bewares lol
I really thought Mei was going to climb the tree to get away from Tai.
Tai just knocked Mei flat on her butt:):):)!
Getting lighter--Kent---On cam #1--it appears to be a shadow of a bird----I think it's "wishful thinking"----ME--MT Nest---& no snow---BUTA BUTA---sleeping in shadows w/bamboo----ENJOYED the blue heron pic at BW---There are blue herons in Shepherdstown--canal path---
Norma you have mail
THSE PANDAS LOVE THE SNOW!!!!
Well with Mei laying for awhile flat on her back and Tai right there I don't think his carrying on is wanting to nurse lol
Have you seen anything at the CO site----They have 4 or more different cams---should be interesting viewing---
Mei just wants to eat and Tai just wants to play lol
I think in the wild it said while Mothers eat the cubs go up the trees. Maybe that is because there are some males around. Yep a male to save Mei so she can eat bamboo and Tai lets her alone lol
SHARON---Will keep you in my thoughts & prayers---But there is improvement isn't there?---That's good---pray it will continue to shrink----I understand "SNOWY HILLS"-----I have same thing---BEST THING ABOUT RETIREMENT---No more worrying about getting off hill & BACK UP---(which is worse)!!---STAY COOL!!!
Good morning everyone & HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITS Mei & Tai are really putting on a good show for you this am Mits!Glad to see that BW didn't get much snow The ME and NE cams don't show any new snow either. Keep our Eagles warm! Dana glad that Nilla sent you the message about her visit to the nest. We now know Liberty & Belle are there, the repair men weren't there and that Nilla is up and about! That's the best part of your news.
Little Princess Buta Buta is awake
DANA---THANKS---I am will try that when it throws me out again---Will let you know!!!---
THANK YOU, JO Yes, what a show those two pandas have put on this a.m., they are happiest it seems, when there is snow on the ground.
Happy Birthday, Mits!!!! I hope you have a day made in the snow :) I am happy to have a day off and hoping to get to watch Buta for a little bit. I take it from the comments I have read that our cam is down and has been and isn't likely to be back soon? So sad, but we'll take what we can get, and reports that they're around are GREAT!
THANK YOU BELLE:):) DID YOU GET THE LECTURE THAT I SENT YOU LAST WEEK OF DR. TEMPLE GRANDINS' TALK AT THE ZOO???
I am pretty sure that is Tai lying in the snow -
So, Mits has a birtyday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIRTHDAY GIRL!!I'm sure you're not a day over 30!
And he is exhausted..time for a nap in the sun:).
There is an eagle off to the left at the Two Harbors nest.
Everyone snuggle up to this nice fireplace!
THANK YOU VICKY...NOT A DAY:):):)!
Mits, are you at the ocean?
Hey Norma- once you sign in you shouldn't have to sign in again to post if you don't close the screen. Is it making you sign in every time?
HI BELLE & VICKY----Haven't see you two FOREVER!----I know BELLE has the day off---Do you have the day off too---VICKY?
LOOK WHERE LUN LUN IS !!!
ButaButa says: Mom - you take the high log and I'll take the low log........
No Norma, Vicky is at work, illegally on the internet (according to new HR book which has not been signed so I'm technically NOT illegal for the moment!) and if you understand all of that, you're doing good!
FLORALGIRL---I get on in a.m.---fine for a while---Then--it tells me INCORRECT PASSWORD----& won't accept password----SOMEONE PUT A HEX on me!!!!-----WHOOOOO CAN IT BE?
Wow What a scratching job Lun Lun is doing?????????????
Coming from the world of corporate business, Vicky, I sure understand it. I was the one who used to have to get those surfers off the net & back to work! I had one employee who even bought things from ebay. It is hard when you don't have a computer at home to adhere to corporate rules.
Question in here who all has to sign in through google to get on??? Me for one and I have to put in username my email address then my password that is how it told me to set it up back before it made you do it.????????
When I come into the blog that is what I have to do. Is that what you all have to do????? Trying to help Norma out here.
YEs Dana, that is what I have to do! Has Norma setup with the google account???? Inquiring minds want to know!
Yes Mits - I did get it - thank you for sending it, and thanks for the reminder - I opened it at work, but couldn't watch it there - I guess I could've - she is a person with autism, so I cuold've justified it, I suppose, but not supposed to do live streaming unless it is for student benefit... so going to watch it today :) Whooo hoooo I got to see Buta and LunLun, but have to watch on the family computer because my laptop can't handle the video from there for more than a couple minutes for some reason.What's up with Nilla? I read a comment that we were happy that she's up and about? Has she been having more problems
I ONLY HAVE TO DO USER-NAME AND PASSWORD....NO, VICKY I'M IN BETHESDA:).
Mits what I am asking is "username" "a email address"?????
I bever went to the google thing, all it asks me for is username and password the first time I comment, then so far not after that...
my username is my belle_wv one - no email address, but I didn't switch to google... I think I am glad of that?
Ok everyone I sent the one part of the email that Nilla sent to me. The part about the nest and the eagles.You gals have her email address plus some of you have her phone number. She doesn't get the eaglet_momster mail was too much in her mail box. But you do have like I said a phone number or email address.
Maine is just beautiful site.
Hello all. Eagle at NE. Happy Birthday Mits.
Hi Sandy! You're the lucky one with the Shepherdstown eagles in your back yard aren't you????
