wvgal_dana said...

Thank you camsgranny for calling us over.

Oh sorry Suzanne the (princess) chick was following Mom with it's eyes so NEAT hee hee

CamsGrammy said...

I have a few minutes this morning to actually sit down and watch all the cams. Usually too busy to enjoy any during the day. I am enjoying this morning.

Suzanne said...

LOL, Dana, she did that with dad this morning too! He was walking on the side of the nest and she followed his every move. Too cute.

Ewwies must be finding something to eat, there have een 2 eating for a little while. Kent MT, all gone. Falcon gone.

Suzanne said...

Camsgrammy, hope you're watching BW. Did you just see our little princess? She's about 27 or so hours old right now. Such a cutie!

normabyrd said...

GOOD A.M. EAGLE BUDDIES---Welcome CAMSGRAMMY---HELLO---SUZANNE--GLO--& DANA---I AGREE SUZANNE---That little "princess" is such an independent little "girl"---That is how I know she is female---ho!

CamsGrammy said...

Yes I was catching a peek every few minutes yesterday morning when all the excitement was going on. I think it is going to be an exciting eagle babies season this year. I think the nursery is going to be getting full this year. There is alot more sites to watch this year also.

paula eaglet momster said...

TGIF, the sun is shining, and the 30 second cam is up

Thanks for the new thread Steve

paula eaglet momster said...

Those poor Osprey are going to need to do a lot of stick gathering...that nest is almost completely empty of sticks....

normabyrd said...

I checked out the videos that PAULA has on her site---in re: Exchange of EGGS in the nest of the Catalina Group---Most AWESOME thing is watching Dr. SHARPE & friends climb up that high cliff---Also the scenery is BEAUTIFUL--SHARPE has SPUNK!!! ho!---Climbing up that peak!!!---CLICK ON PAULA'S NAME----THANKS AGAIN PAULA--TRULY "OUT OF THIS WORLD"---

Suzanne said...

LOL, Paula it sure is. I see that big stick I didn't know what it was this morning, that has been pushed to the side. Both ewwies are still there, and now a fish crow has joined the party! These poor guys will have nowhere to go when the ospreys get back!

normabyrd said...

EAGLE--ME Nest---Wind is blowing so hard you only get a glimpse of the top of her head!

Suzanne said...

Falcon cam went away. At least we know it works. Now I hope they clean the ledge!

Suzanne said...

Only fish crow left, osprey nest.

wvgal_dana said...

NE sure has alot of snow around that nest hole!! :( I know that pair has babies last year 2 of them. So they should know what they are doing. Probably just looks filled in.

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry hi ( : Norma

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE High temp today was supposed to be 55°, it is already 55°. Birds are singing, plants are popping out of the ground. Just saw the amazing adventures of Dr. Sharpe, was on the edge of my seat the whole time...those eagles have prime real estate out there in Santa Cruz! Have a good one.:)SUZANNE, THEY DID CLEAN THE LEDGE:):)

wvgal_dana said...

paula eaglet momster said...

Black pic at BW eagles - hope it comes back soon, looked like there was a feeding going on

paula eaglet momster said...

It's back now, feeding over

Mits said...

"LITTLE PRINCE" was just stuffing his face with bamboo, now exploring, Mei and Tian are interacting.

paula eaglet momster said...

Or whatever it was! Not positive it was a feeding, probably just a chick check!

normabyrd said...

FL nest---No Pic---Last update 2/23/07---Eagles spend less time in nest---No sign of a new clutch!

paula eaglet momster said...

Like the pic, Mits!

normabyrd said...

MITS----Well---He is a "HAPPY CAMPER" then!---I forget how much BAMBOO they said he eats per day---something like 22 lbs.? ---When I was watching--he was wandering around---down & walked in the creek---STILL LOVE HIM!

normabyrd said...

EAGLE--CO nest----(head is cut off in the pic)

Suzanne said...

Morning, Mits and Normabyrd and anybody else I haven't spoken with yet. Mits, they did clean the ledge? I know they used to have it clean and a new nesting box before the falcons came back, but that ledge looks dirty now! Guess Mother Nature didn't clean it, she dirtied it!

Suzanne said...

Looks like little princess is getting lunch. Such a cutie.

Mits said...

Suz, thought you were talking about Buta-Buta:). Eagle pic is temporary til I find a more current pic of Tai-Shan.....TU, SHARON for putting the eagle piture up:):):)!

Suzanne said...

LOL, Mits, no I was talking about the falcon ledge in Harrisburg! Nasty, nasty. I was surprised when you said it had been cleaned, but thought ok...

MEMA Jo said...

Well I did what I said I wasn't going to do - read all comments before I said Good Almost Noon Morning

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg roll, our nest

Suzanne said...

Time for me to hit the road. All have a great eagle day! Just sent a pic around of our Little Princess napping, and using the Little Prince's egg as a pillow. How cute is that.

All have a great weekend. Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE----When you look at the little "fuzz ball"---makes you want to say---"My--Grandma--What BIG EYES you have!!!---ho!--a DARLING!!!

MEMA Jo said...

I DON"T BELIEVE IT!
A NEW HAMMOCK FOR OUR
LITTLE PANDA PRINCESS

Mits said...

Wonder if she climbed in it or if they put her in the hammock???

Mits said...

She's climbing out.

Mits said...

Well she is trying to climb out.

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg roll our nest.

Live Feed sure would be nice!!!! (HINT, HINT)

An update on the problem/software to correct the problem, etc etc, would be nice too. Thanks.

MEMA Jo said...

I thnk ButaButa needs help getting out of the hammock. I didn't see her get into it. Guess she decided to just lie there and get comfy.

MEMA Jo said...

NE nesting eagle looks like our Belle did last week...... Hope it stops snowing up there and they get some of our sunshine soon.

MEMA Jo said...

ButaButa has 1 foot in and 1 foot out! Hope the cam moves back a little. Just remember that if she falls she will bounce back up!

normabyrd said...

JO--When I last saw her, she was asleep on the log---I am betting she gets out--ho!---I think they put her in there to keep the little BUTA BUTA busy!--She is so much FUN to watch!----

MEMA Jo said...

Kent nest MT (Cam 3 still giving them problems)
CO 1 (Bottom half) eagle in nest
VA cam down

MEMA Jo said...

LUNLUN probably put her in there - you know - like a cub playpen...

MEMA Jo said...

I went over to Cub videos and MISSED HER GETTING OUT OF THE HAMMOCK..

How did she do it?

MEMA Jo said...

Well I can see ButaButa is ok and once again 'on top of things'.

wvgal_dana said...

We might have just had the 2nd egg hatch sent pic to Lisa not sure

MEMA Jo said...

Dana - I see them both in the nest. I didn't see a switch..Any chance you are you sending pic out to us.

Mits said...

both eagle BW.

MEMA Jo said...

WOW I thnk you're right Dana.
You can see 'no eggs' Hope Lisa gets back to you soon or puts out info on the page.

MEMA Jo said...

Hope you're snapping more pics because now it looks as though the one egg is still there .....

MEMA Jo said...

Lisa did put an update with new pic of eaglet getting fed fish.

Mits said...

JO YOU HAVE MAIL

MEMA Jo said...

Thanx, Mits

MEMA Jo said...

Belle is having a beautiful day in the nest. She is so alert to everything around her.

Mits said...

Something may be going on, she keeps looking under her, but I did see the chick and an egg last time I looked.

Mits said...

She is enjoying the nice weather, for sure.

normabyrd said...

HEY JO---How did BUTA BUTA get out of the hammock?---I so hope she did it on her own----Appears to be asleep on the high log!--LOVE HER!

normabyrd said...

WOW!!! DANA---You think the BW hatched #2?-----SUZANNE will be devastated if she missed it----

Mits said...

FALCON ON CAM 4 AT SHENEDOAH.

normabyrd said...

MITS---SHENANDOAH as a FACOLN on #2 & #4-----FORGOT HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY ARE!

normabyrd said...

Maybe there is another chick---BW cam is white---

MEMA Jo said...

The falcon cams are AWESOME
I don't know what we'll do if there are chicks on the small ledge.....

MEMA Jo said...

I wish Sandra could see these.

MEMA Jo said...

Need to leave for a few hours.
Keep an update on BW ..
BBL

Sunny said...

Hey everyone! I haven't posted in awhile, but I do check in from time to time, and I've been watching this cam and BW. I'm going away for the weekend, so I guess I'll miss the 2nd hatch. Take good notes!

Mits said...

Hi, Sunny, I'm sure they will take good notes!

Mits said...

Mei and Tian are getting along so nicely:).

Mits said...

eagle cam 2 at Kent.

sandyshaw said...

Thanks for the falcon updates. Two burrowing owls at Kent.

paula eaglet momster said...

I think Belle has been in the nest all day today.....of course, she's had those fish remnants to keep her company :)

paula eaglet momster said...

Eagle just arrived w/ and is eating lunch/dinner. Belle left.

MEMA Jo said...

Great view of our eggs.

Thanks Sandy for Borrowing Owl heads up...Haven't seen him for awhile.

MEMA Jo said...

Oh Great! There are 2 owls, Sandy. He found a mate!

paula eaglet momster said...

Done eating and back on the eggs.

sandyshaw said...

Thank you all for your prayers for Tom. He is responding well to the antibiotics, after serious problems with the first two that they tried. He will stay in the hospital until every trace of infection is cleared up. It's a very good hospital, but I worry about hospital infections, but what can I do.

MEMA Jo said...

Sandy, relieved to hear the meds are working on that knee infection of Tom's.

MEMA Jo said...

I don't think that Mei was as rough with Tai as what LunLun is with MeiLan. IMHO

Mits said...

I don't watch Atlanta much, but was watching her interaction just now, and, she seems to be a litte rough, but I think Buta is a more aggressive cub with the keepers then Tai ever was. He didn't do alot of snarling or growling when he was younger.

MEMA Jo said...

ME really having a bad storm. They will need to reposition the cam after it blows over.
NE has it as bad as what Belle did.
Funny to see the birdprints in the snow.

I just bet Norfolk has at least one chick

Mits said...

Windy at CC..big eagle sitting on branch...juvies looking over the nest.

paula eaglet momster said...

Still only one chick at BW

Mits said...

Just saw that, Paula

paula eaglet momster said...

Eating time there now.

paula eaglet momster said...

My comment actually was from about 10 minutes ago, then they were off of it again!

paula eaglet momster said...

Make that 20 minutes ago.

paula eaglet momster said...

Feeding at BW

MEMA Jo said...

5:35 pm You can clearly see that BW has one chick and one egg at this time.

paula eaglet momster said...

Other egg might have a crack

Mits said...

Lisa showed a pic the other day, and she thought it was a piece of grass, but if it were grass, with all the movment think it would have rubbed off, the pic I took looks like a crack, but just don't know.

MEMA Jo said...

Dinner time BBL

Mits said...

both eagles at KENT AND CAM 3 IS UP

floralgirl said...

For some reason, I can't get the NCTC cam page open. Anyone else having this problem?

Mits said...

I can get it up, Megan

Mits said...

How are you feeling Megan, how is your daughter?

floralgirl said...

Strange, can't open the page all afternoon:( Feeling better, throat still sore. Daughter feeling better but still tired.

Mits said...

I would really like to know what keeps that Maine cam up??

Mits said...

Megan, I was reading a news report today about a school in Caroline County...150 kids out today with strep throat.

Mits said...

Eagles still at KENT and 2 eagles at CO.

normabyrd said...

GOOD EVENING EAGLE BUDDIES---I just wanted my BUDDIES to know--------W/be working at the polls----We are having a fire levy election tomorrow--5:30 a.m.---7:30 p.m.----
Any Hampshire Co. folks check in---PLEASE VOTE!---take notes---any new little ones come into this world---ho!--This is volunteer--so needed to work---

floralgirl said...

My sister in law is in Chesapeake,Va. Their school is closing MOnday to disinfect school, cause sp many kids have the flu. At my daughter's school, many kids are out with strep.

normabyrd said...

HI MEGAN---Just scanned down & saw your name---Hope you are feeling better!!!!---Wonder what you thought about GORE winning the OSCAR!!!!----COOL!--

floralgirl said...

Hey Norma, hanging in there. Sure Norma, glad to see the movie get recognition.

sandyshaw said...

Two gorgeous eagles on the branches at Kent. Lots of activity with the burrowing owls. I saw one spread wings and fly from one side of the hole to the other.

Tom may be on antibiotics for as much as six weeks.

MEMA Jo said...

I am tired of paying bills so I thought I would come over awhile.
Hi Norma Megan Mits

Norma-were all your buttons tomorrow!
Megan-Ice Cream sooths a sore throat!
Mits-I am watching Star & Spirit too!

MEMA Jo said...

Hi Sandra Does that mean he would stay at the hospital that long?
If he does, are they going to rent out a room to you and your mom?
That's a lot of visiting miles for you. If you need help - please call me - you have my number!

MEMA Jo said...

Sandra and Norma
Are you ladies keeping your emails cleaned up?

MEMA Jo said...

Mits, they must have used DUCT TAPE on that camera in Maine. The wind has been blowing like that all day long.

MEMA Jo said...

Egg turning time at OUR nest

Mits said...

Jo, it hurts my ears when I turn it on...egg turning at our nest

MEMA Jo said...

The ME wind is as bad if not worst then the SC wind.

MEMA Jo said...

Maybe Star & Spirit are going to stay in the tree tonight... That is where they were spotted at daybreak one time

Mits said...

I don't ever think I have seen them in there this long, but middle of March will be here before we know it.

Mits said...

They are still in the tree.

Mits said...

wonder if that is the moon coming up behind them...going to check that out.

Mits said...

moon rise at KENT 4:50p.m.PST, but light rain in the area, might just be lights from town

MEMA Jo said...

Lisa on BW osprey site has new pics of juvies that have been visiting.

MEMA Jo said...

The moon is really bright out here over the valley tonight........

sandyshaw said...

Yes, maam, Jo I check my e-mails regularly. I think I even replied to one about the falcons?

Tom probably will be released Monday or soon after, but will continue IV's at home. They plan to aspirate the knee, drawing fluid, on Monday on order to identify the particular bacteria. They have been reluctant to do this because of the danger of introducing or stimulating infection, but feel that they need to know exactly what they are fighting. So, please pray hard. It helps me.

sandyshaw said...

And it helps Tom, too. I'm afraid I'm not thinking very straight.

MEMA Jo said...

Sandy I even pray that all our prayers will be answered for you & Tom. You keep your faith as strong as you can for both of you.


Sandy, I meant "Have you been deleting the emails after you read them...?"

Mits said...

Yes, Sandra you and Tom and your Mom are always in our prayers.....Jo, you know you and I don't have that problem...we read, forward and delete.....

Mits said...

BW eagle has not been sleeping too much tonight.

paula eaglet momster said...

Yes, she has Mits, I've been watching her.

paula eaglet momster said...

I meant, yes she seems restless.

MEMA Jo said...

I third the notion that the BW eagle is restless...

MEMA Jo said...

Eagle Cam Gallery updated & new pic on osprey site... BW

MEMA Jo said...

BW Head tucked under

Mits said...

:)she looks like a heart that way.

MEMA Jo said...

Guess everything was ok underneath. We have limited viewing time left - I just wish we could see the eaglet and if the egg is still intact before it is lights out!

Mits said...

I was thinking the same thing, cause I really don't want to get up at 3 and check.

paula eaglet momster said...

Yes, she has finally settled down

MEMA Jo said...

I am going to be signing out soon...
So, Paula and Mits, which one of you is going to be checking out BW first thing in the morning. And also give SC a look as soon as possible. Then go to CO - might be an egg there.
And Lordy Lordy - VA may also have chicks...
You are going to have a busy am!!

paula eaglet momster said...

I did a little video of the feeding this afternoon at Blackwater. Just click on my name and go to

eagletmomsters.blogspot.com

MEMA Jo said...

Will do...........then I'm signing off.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good evening all. Nice pic, Mits! Hope everyone has had a wonderful day! I have again been fighting with my internet all day. Can't do anything with it from about 11-5. Switching next week to Frontier so we will see if that is any better.

Mommy is still in the hospital. Pneumonia is still there but a little better. She is still not feeling very well though. Please continue to pray for her!

Mits said...

If you look at Lady B up-side-down, she looks like a bug with her tail, being the head, and, having the little antennas. and with that I will say GOOD NIGHT Was hpoing VA would be on, but must be having more serious problems, but I know they are working on it.

Mits said...

Sharon you know we are thinking and praying for her.

sandyshaw said...

Oh yes, Jo, Nilla gave me a long lecture about the undeleted e-mails so I delete every day.

Sharon, how old is your mother? I'll keep her in my prayers, and you.

MEMA Jo said...

When I get over on YouTube, it is hard not to watch others and stay longer then you expect to.
Need to find & check out the Bald Eagle in TX Ilano County, Looks as though their tree is also a Sycamore.

sandyshaw said...

Mits, what an eye you have. I see the bug in the nest at Blackwater. Thanks for the new perspective.

MEMA Jo said...

Sharon thanks for the update on your Mom and prayers are being said for her full recovery. And prayers for you too.

MEMA Jo said...

I am calling it a day..
Good Night All
Pleasant dreams & peaceful sleep
Prayers being said for all

paula eaglet momster said...

Search for the Cottonwood Texas eagles Jo. I think that is the other nest w/ 1 male and 2 females

floralgirl said...

Don't forget, tonight the moon is full. It's the worm moon, called that because this time of the year worms are starting to become more active under the ground. There is a total eclipse of the moon which we should be able to see if the clouds move out. It starts as soon as the moon begins to rise. The moon will become orange. It's worth checking out, even if you miss the beginning due to clouds, it's a long eclipse.

IrisF said...

Good morning Floralgirl, that's neat about the moon phase. I'll try to watch tonight... Ihave been up monotoring the BW nest - one egg and one chick is still all I can see. Will try to send pictures later this am.

Not a morning person, so too groggy to do it now.

You are all still in my thoughts and prayers. will talk more soon, I hope. Have a great day!

floralgirl said...

Hello Iris, been watching BW nest, gotta go to work for a while, eggs usually hatch in the am, so someone better be up and taking pics.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning everybody. It looks like there is still an eaglet and an egg in the BW nest this morning. That is such a precious little baby!

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING ALL Is that an uneaten fish at BW??

mauley said...

Good Morning Floral Girl, Iris and Sharon, I am already hooked on the little BW princess. I already love her. If you gals will pass the message on, I will be on Spring Break this week and am BABYSitting two of the eight so they dont have to go to daycare this week. I will have them 24-7 until Friday. Could use prayers, because these two are what the family calls "The Rowdy Girls", ages 2 and 3. I am still strugglin with the migraines. I have a preventative I take, and I also take Maxalt when I get one, but seems like they keep getting harder to wear off. Must b e my age. I may not be able to blog much, but I will try to keep up. If anything goes on with any of you that I need to pray for, just email me and I will try to check that very frequently. Big week for you dear Sharon. Wish I c;ould share cake with you. Much love to all Im off to collect the girls. donna

glo said...

Good Morning all. Happy Eagle and eaglet(s) viewing day. Off for coffee and dog treats. Work tomorrow. Pack Monday...grandbaby :) Tues thru Sunday...you will all be grand eagle mamas a few time sover by then.

mauley said...

Morning to Mits too. It was goood to see Sandy/s post and good old chanticleer last last. Gotta go for good now. Wanted to Hi . to Mits. Remember Hit Mits, Mits? donna

mauley said...

By the way, Glo, I gave my hubby the Spunky trinket box to put his ring and watch in at night and he loved it especially the verse from Isaiah. Drinking my coffe now in my NEW mug. I am tearing myself away now. Remember to email me if something goes on that I can't live without knowing. You all are my buddies. donna

mauley said...

Sharon, am praying for you and your precious Mother. I will go now and continue to pray for you both.

Mits said...

What a difference a day makes, much quieter in MAINE, and the cam is back in position as of late last night when things calmed down, glad the eagles were not in it during the storm.

Mits said...

Have fun, Donna.....

Mits said...

Juvie at osprey nest.

Mits said...

Tian is trying to impress Mei with his acobatic ability.

Mits said...

Eagles at Kent are still in the tree...cam 1, spent the night.

Mits said...

Think maybe CO eagle spent the night in the nest, she is there this a.m. West coast nests still too early to see anything.

Mits said...

No egg at CO yet.

paula eaglet momster said...

I'll tell you, that Maine cam is just amazing. Thank goodness the eagles didn't have to ride out that storm in the nest.

Thanks for the heads up on the full moon, Megan. Just saw it on my Yahoo page this morning...hope it's not cloudy...

One eagle in our nest :)

Morning, all. Have a great Saturday!

I have a new video on
