MEMA Jo said...

Good Morning Great Job Dana

Norma, I watched it - Spectacular - Gave me a new respect for the osprey.I never realized that they go under the water get their catch - Did you! I loved it when he shaked the water from himself - He shook just like a dog coming out of the water...

Steve - Don't push going back until you feel well or you'll just be back down again. Thanks for the thread - thanks for seeing that we needed it

normabyrd said...

The Little Prince" is enjoying is bamboo---Don't see MEI----EAGLE at ME----Still haven't see NORFOLK'S Eagle---About time to view the ATLANTA BEAUTY "BUTA BUTA"---probably sleeping--ho!---Does her log climbing in the afternoon---

paula eaglet momster said...

Our cam finally is cleared up

normabyrd said...

JO--How about those EAGLES---
WOW!---they just took the fish away from the osprey & even caught a couple of the fish in mid-air!!!---(NO WONDER THEY ARE KING OF THE JUNGLE)----I am always AMAZED when reading about migration---

MEMA Jo said...

Both beautiful eagles in MAINE

MEMA Jo said...

Our cam is looking good, Paula.

normabyrd said...

wvgal_dana said...

Hi Jo and Norma and Paula and Mits and Glo and anyone I missed.

I did get a pic of BW eggs earlier this am. No hole or crack as of then.

There has been eagles everywhere I go today.

Immature eagles several different ones and mature eagles been at BW Osprey nest this morning.

Maine has had alot of action arranging sticks and fitting into the nest hole for size.

It is so GREAT to see our cam clear

I can tell you one thing I'm woren out!

MEMA Jo said...

Norma That was awesome seeing the eagle chase the osprey and getting the fish from him.I can't believe the extreme distance they flew during migration..wasn't that a beautiful destination-I'd want to spend 3 months there also.

Incredible Journey-Animal Planet is on today at 2pm

wvgal_dana said...

Oh yes did catch the show last night. Amazing how the Osprey get the fish. Yes our beautiful bald eagle does sit there waiting. Flies up and knocks the fish from the Osprey and bingo got their food.
It was something to see them go farther into the water to get their fish. Right about the shaking the water off lol.

MEMA Jo said...

Hey There Dana
Since you did so well with the morning commentary please be prepared to do it all again tomorrow morning for us late risers!

wvgal_dana said...

Tai is I think working his way out of a tree. No he decided to stop and settle there no down more.

normabyrd said...

DANA---Thanks for the update--- I bet you are WORN OUT----Have you taken your "doggie" for a walk yet?
Keep forgetting his name---

Mits said...

Tai is up the tree and Mei is roaming the grounds. At my meeting at the zoo last night, they told us that Mei and Tai are separated 24/7 now, it has been a gradual process since January and Tai is doing wonderfully. They are doing this to let Mei go into estrus naturally, and she needed to stop nursing to do this. So all pandas are fine and happy:).They are watching Mei's hormone levels on a weekly basis and there is no change at this time, but they were not expecting any just yet. Will be a few more weeks.

wvgal_dana said...

you can see 2 of our 3 eggs that are being turned

wvgal_dana said...

Tai is out of tree after going to last low branch and rubbing himself on it for a good while. Now he is eating bamboo.

Buta Buta is sleeping

Our eagle just pulled some of the grass in from of her/him to their chest.

normabyrd said...

I agree JO----I kept thinking what makes them continue when they already about as far South as they can go----That's what makes nature so amazing!----

Jennifer said...

Is there an updated link to the live video feed?

wvgal_dana said...

Norma I was thinking the same thing. I knew from Lisa's comments how far they went. Yet when they got to Florida; I thought why not just stop there.

normabyrd said...

THANKS MITS for the info----Oh he seems to be a "Happy Camper"---but I guess I can keep his tumbling, etc. with MEI in my thoughts!---Sometime NATURE doesn't always seem fair to us--humans---ho!---(We can't keep our own lives straight)--ho! ho!----So I guess we can't FOOL MOTHER NATURE!!!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Our nest picture are so much clearer thank you NCTC for whatever you did.

I going to lay down a bit. Someone get some nice pic since they are clear for the album.

bbl

EAGLE SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE NEST IN FLA.

Mits said...

MEMA Jo said...

MEMA Jo said...

ButaButa started climbing up the log like an old pro & then
she flipped right off. BUT now she is climbing up again and she is going at a pretty good speed.

MEMA Jo said...

I wish they would give ButaButa a jungle gym that wasn't so high!!

MEMA Jo said...

I wish I could take a pic of ButaButa. They are getting a very good close up. Can't take my eyes off of her until she comes down.

MEMA Jo said...

I have never watched anything so entertaining as ButaButa exploring her abilities to climb........

Just Vicky said...

Hey, does Cape Coral FL have a baby??

MEMA Jo said...

Not to my knowledge.... You mean
Tesoro nest right?

Vicky Can you put Panda Cam up?Buta Buta is climbing

MEMA Jo said...

I think the chances are pretty high that ButaButa is ready for her nap & I am not so sure that the nap won't be on the logs

Mits said...

Don't know of a Cape Coral site? At Port St. Lucie, when I got a msg from Lynda late last week no egg yet. Didn't know if a new clutch was going to happen.

normabyrd said...

HI VICKY---What have you been up to---haven't talked with your for a while----I see JO told you to look in on BUTA BUTA---She is so agile----I think she is getting ready to take a nap---What do you all think---I have things to do---but can't take my eyes off of her!!!!

Just Vicky said...

No, not toroso (Whatever) this is the City of Cape Coral cam

http://www.capecoral.net/eaglecam/eaglecam2.cfm

MEMA Jo said...

paula eaglet momster said...

That pitt.edu is a good sight. Have it on the momsters links. Found a lot of cams thru there. They have other cams too, don't they? I haven't been on it in awhile.

Mits said...

PAULA do you know how old the eaglets are there???

Mits said...

Ok, that's where I have seen that link before on the EAGLET MOMSTER SITE:).

Mits said...

Lots of interaction between Mei Xiang and Tian Tian this afternoon.

paula eaglet momster said...

A couple of weeks or more, maybe 6?
I tried getting on it from home and work and never had any luck. I've heard others say they can't get on there, either. I don't know what Vicky is using to get on there.

paula eaglet momster said...

Vicky would be the one to ask!

paula eaglet momster said...

Ewiiieee and fish crow cleaning up the Osprey nest. That show was good last night. Somewhere, If I can find the link, there is a site that has the tracking for Jaws, the Osprey in the show last night.

Just Vicky said...

Vicky is using netscape browser!

paula eaglet momster said...

Vulture party!

paula eaglet momster said...

That Osprey nest has been the hot spot today!

paula eaglet momster said...

What version?

Just Vicky said...

8.1.2

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good afternoon, my eagle buddies. Just got back from a day at the ER with my mom. She fell getting out of bed at 5:30 a.m. Nothing is broken but her oxygen saturation is low. I have to take her to the doctor tomorrow to find out why. More will be revealed I guess. Please keep her in your prayers.

Just Vicky said...

Hi Sharon!!! Sounds like you've had a full day! Sorry to hear about your mom!!

MEMA Jo said...

Lisa had emailed me last night in response to an email I sent to her concerning the Incredible Journey show:The osprey tracking program in the show also has a website -- the program is run by the Univ. of North Carolina at Charlotte. They should be tracking the ospreys as they head north soon.

http://www.bioweb.uncc.edu/
Bierregaard/migration1.htm

MEMA Jo said...

Glad your home now Sharon and hope that your mom is resting comfortably.

paula eaglet momster said...

Thanks, Jo. Now I don't have to go digging for it.

glo said...

On my way to work here very soon. heads up live feed is up...

paula eaglet momster said...

4 eggs at WE nest. 3 are in the front part of the nest, closest to the cam. 1 is in the back (furthest) Dr. Sharpe is going out Wednesday or Thursday to exchange the eggs for fake ones, so he can incubate and hatch the real ones.

paula eaglet momster said...

Hope your Mom is ok, Sharon. Thanks for the heads up Glo. Got tired of checking it.

MEMA Jo said...

I didn't realize that the LIVE FEED is up.. Whoopee!!

paula eaglet momster said...

That didn't last long. My feed has been down for awhile, won't come back on

MEMA Jo said...
This comment has been removed by the author.

Mits said...

EAGLE IN MAINE JUST TOOK OFF, ITS DARK THERE.

Mits said...

BOTH EAGLES AT BW.

MEMA Jo said...

Mits did you read Paula's message that Dr Peter Sharpe was going out tomorrow or Thurs to exchange the eggs.... Do you think we will see him - Have to read the forum to get an idea when he is going. They must think that wenest is only going to have 3 eggs..

Mits said...

I read her msg, I won't be here tomorrow in the afternoon, not sure what my plans are for Thursday, but I bet they will give the eagle watchers the heads-up.

Mits said...

Paula said there are 4 eggs at WEST END:).

MEMA Jo said...

2 Eagles at CC

wenest has 4 eggs

MEMA Jo said...

I read it on their forum but then I see where Paula informed us :)

Mits said...

2 juvie heads up at CC.

MEMA Jo said...

New updates on DC panda page

Mits said...

love the pic of Tai, up on the scale.

MEMA Jo said...

BW Nest Update by Lisa says:
2/27/07:
We thought we had a crack, but now it looks like a stick or piece of grass.
There are photos

MEMA Jo said...

BBILW

Mits said...

PAULA, ARE TOU WATCHING TH??? She keeps looking underneath her chest.

Mits said...

THERE IS AN EGG AT 7:49, EAST COAST TIME.

Mits said...

I wish I could have taken a pic, but it is down in the deep nest bowl now.

MEMA Jo said...

Mits did you actually get a pic. I was reading the forum & like you they think there is an egg.

Mits said...

No, Jo, I didn't get a pic, but I'm certain Cumbrian did....I was just watching her and she kept looking underneath her chest, she stood for a sec and I saw the egg, and, now she has settled down.

MEMA Jo said...

I'd bet my last $1 that there is an
egg at thnest.

MEMA Jo said...

Hopefully Cumbrian will publish his pics shortly.

Mits said...

Soooo exciting...

MEMA Jo said...

Funny remark from cdn-cdn that
There has to be an egg...she's doing the brood patch wiggle...lol

MEMA Jo said...

Some pics are up on pg.23
With the egg well being soooooooo deep (almost as deep as Norfolk) the actions of 81 & 82 will be proof that there is an egg.

MEMA Jo said...

Mits Check your mail

Mits said...

I saw # 82 doing that....JO, YOU HAVE MAIL

paula eaglet momster said...

I was doing video. We think there is an egg, too!

paula eaglet momster said...

I have been glued to the computer!

MEMA Jo said...

We found you Paula...lol That egg well, like you said, is tooooo deep.
Sure way to tell will be when 81 comes to the nest.

Mits said...

No doubt in my mind I saw the egg, before she gently pushed it further down into the nest bow,almost fell off my chair.

paula eaglet momster said...

CC=Cape Coral?

Mits said...

Yes..CC Cape Coral.

Mits said...

What time does BW go off air...11 or 12?

Mits said...

If TH had the little e-mail envelope at top, I would have had a pic, it happened so fast.

MEMA Jo said...

BW closes 11pm till 3am

paula eaglet momster said...

MIts, they do have one on the 5 second cam, for both the TH and the WE cams

sandyshaw said...

Just read the blog, such an exciting day, sorry I missed it. But I am so grateful for the information you gather and pass on to us who pop in and out. Among other things my son visited yesterday, always messes up my computer trying to improve it, now I have a totally screwed up Real Player so I can't see videos. I'll have to work on it tomorrow. Jo, I see the juice bar signs. Is it your son who is opening this?

paula eaglet momster said...

FYI, Cumbrian is a lady, Pat. Her husband is Roy.

Mits said...

I had it on the 5 minute cam, Paula....Hi Sandy...how are things going at you home, everyone feeling better.

Mits said...

Thanks, Jo, been watching BW and she seems a little restless tonight.

Mits said...

Our eagle is sleeping.

Mits said...

PAULA, I e-mailed Dr. Sharpe right after I saw all of this going on and within a half hour he had e-mailed me back...I just find that amazing.

paula eaglet momster said...

What did he have to say?

There should be a little disk, Mits, just like on our 30 second cam

Mits said...

PAULA, you have mail....I haven't even tried the 5 or 10 second cam there yet. Guess I should use that so I don't hog up the cam. I saw them talking on the forum about the broadband and not overloading it.

MEMA Jo said...

Hi Sandra So glad to hear from you.The connection with the Juice Bar is my granddaughter's husband. His brother & wife are the ones opening the Juice Bar. Across the street his sister & her husband have Stone Soup.
Melissa & Michael are now looking for property (Home with land) in the Shepherdstown area.

movin said...

Hi, eagle lovers...
Can't tell for sure if Mits is talking about the West End nest or the Twin Harbors one, but I looked in briefly from work, and I saw the female at Twin Harbors securely and deeply settled into the egg cup as though she might be hatching an egg.

Could that be the source of excitement??

Jim

Mits said...

Lady B just can't seem to get comfortable tonight, wonder if Suzanne will have a little surprise tomorrow??

sandyshaw said...

What a small world, Jo. I had no idea you had such connections to Shepherdstown. We love Stone Soup, can't get there often but it's always a pleasure. Look forward to the juice bar, and good luck to them all.

paula eaglet momster said...

Yup, Jim, Looks like Two Harbors (TH) has an egg!

MEMA Jo said...

Sandra I just checked out the message you had sent thru Momsters & it showed all the email addresses and I really did delete it. However, I got a newsletter from Friends of Blackwater and the Rachel Carson Online Book Club is discussed. I will see if I can send the email without any Spam.

MEMA Jo said...

Sandra check out the email on the Book Club & let me know if I left anything out.

movin said...

Thanks, Paula (and Mema Jo for the e-mail)...

That pair has been acting ready for the best part of a week, so I'm not too surprised, but I have seen #82 testing the nest cup for extended periods before...couldn't be sure this time.

I don't know if they will leave the cam on when Dr. Sharpe collects the eggs and delivers the wooden imitations, but I'll bet you will probably get some pics if they do...........please.

I've seen it before on nature programs...they use a specially insulated (and heated?) box to maintain the temperature of the eggs and protect them from damage until they transport them to the incubation lab...guess they must be heated, because on TV they fly them considerable distances sometimes.

Jim

MEMA Jo said...

It would be neat to see this being done and actually see the chick peck himself out of the egg.

sandyshaw said...

Jo, looks fine to me. I just thought some folks would be interested.

Mits said...

Yes, Jim, pretty sure that was an egg I saw before she gently got it lower in the nest bowl. Don't forget to keep an eye on BW the next few days:).

Mits said...

Just heard from Lisa at BW, and she said the Dad has been bringing in her meals to her on a regular basis now, and ,that maybe they knew something was about to happen:).

Mits said...

GOOD NIGHT ALL

MEMA Jo said...

Time to call it a day..

Good Night All
Pleasant dreams & peaceful sleep
Prayers being said for all in need



Good Morning Dana

movin said...

GOOD NIGHT/GOOD MORNING TO ALL OUR EAGLE LOVERS....

I think we are going to be seeing some significant additions in the near future..

Jim

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE No Suzanne, that is not a good sign, Suz, hope you feel better. Lady B looks good, eagle at osprey nest. Have a good day!

Mits said...

Mits said...

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Everyone

Hi Mits

Suzanne was taking off yesterday and today due to teeth being pulled. I think that is what I remember.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning, my eagle buddies. Took Mommy back to the ER last night and they found pneumonia. Should have been found yesterday morning but --- ??? Heading back to the hospital now. Got home about 2:15 this morning. Please keep her in your prayers. I will check back in later. I hope everybody has a wonderful day. It is sunny and cold here in Bluefield this morning!

Mits said...
