WOw, how cool that would be to see! Thanks for the new thread!

paula eaglet momster said...

Beautiful pic of the 3 eggs, Steve.

Happy Monday everyone. Keep your eagle eye out for eaglets!

normabyrd said...

THANKS FOR THE UPDATE VICKY---THANKS STEVEN---I agree with VICKY-----to be able to see the EAGLE-EYE in the CAMERA would be TOO COOL!!!

normabyrd said...

CO EAGLE----No falcon--or owl--

normabyrd said...

MITS---The PA cam is working---Is that MOM on the other end of ledge with_____??

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Vicky for heads up and morning to you, Paula, Jo, Mits, Glo, Norma.

Norma I think at Shenandoah that is 4 different view of one ledge.

MEMA Jo said...

I was on the ledge with the falcon cam when I heard you calling, Vicky. I just couldn't get here any sooner.
Vicky - I know you have an alarm system somehow build in on New Threads! lol

Thanks Steve! Glad you're home from Wyoming to take care of things as they happen this week. Tell Mike we hope he gave the old eagle eye look back to either Belle or Liberty.

wvgal_dana said...

I still think an egg is being hatched at Norfolk. We'll know soon enough if it started today might take till tomorrow.

wvgal_dana said...

Steve what one seen "an eagle eye looking at the cam" sure would have been nice for us watchers to have seen also.

UPDATE PLEASE ON LIVE FEED

MEMA Jo said...

My last 2 posts on the old thread are:
Well, I did say Good Morning to everyone but my post just disappeared into thin air - However the next 2 did publish Strange...
Norma - not sure about the structure for our ButaButa.Maybe it will help her learn to climb down.
Norfolk Lady is due for another to hatch I would think. Last one was Sat
Glad the #3 cam is up at Kent but then the other 2 were covering Star/Spirit very well.
Need to go see that Falcon egg on the ledge.

Welcome home,Glo Hopefully we will see a new updated pic on here shortly so we can see just how much your little angel has grown!

MEMA Jo said...

Norfolk does have an update on their NEWS about the first egg hatching. It was 38 days exactly.

MEMA Jo said...

DANA WHAT TIME IS IT?

paula eaglet momster said...

Megan,
You have got to get on here and let everyone know what you saw at BW!

mauley said...

Morning All, Hope everyone has a blessed day. I agree about the beautiful pic of the 3 eggs, those precious eggs hold our new babies.

paula eaglet momster said...

Chick is on the move at BW

wvgal_dana said...

Jo why I got the correct time on computer. Plus emails I send from both my email site go out with right time on them.

paula eaglet momster said...

Live Feed is up!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Chick at BW Passed out!

paula eaglet momster said...

Poor lil guy is just really wiped out! LOL

paula eaglet momster said...

Now there is two tuckered out eaglets at BW :)

paula eaglet momster said...

Live feed went down :(:(

wvgal_dana said...

I sent an email to Steve 11:08am asking for update on live feed.

Live feed announced up at 11:29am

Feel the love lol

wvgal_dana said...

Jo send me an email say anything and I'll tell you what time.

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg turning out nest

wvgal_dana said...

Well that live feed was "short lived" feel the concept of UNLOVED :(

wvgal_dana said...

Not real sure but I thought I just seen a 2nd fuzzy head at Norfolk Va. I did a full screen and it looked like it. Now I'm not sure, think so.

MEMA Jo said...

Belle seems to be checking under her breast - Maybe she can hear that little pecking noise!

MEMA Jo said...

Blackwater chicks sure are growing!
Being fed alot!

wvgal_dana said...

Jo time is right in my other mail. Yesterday time was right when I sent a test page to myself in yahoo. mail now today it is wrong again. LOL Calling mail maintance lol

MEMA Jo said...

Shadows are hindering our seeing
everything in the VA nest.........

MEMA Jo said...

Dana, was my time also incorrect?

MEMA Jo said...

Dana Sent myself email -
Time is incorrect even though my clock is accurate.
GUESS WHAT! I am going to watch
eagles and just forget about the
time of my messages!

paula eaglet momster said...

Yup, Dana, think that was a whole 15 minutes of live feed....

MEMA Jo said...

Egg turn at OUR nest

MEMA Jo said...

I was hoping to get a better view of our eggs that time - but didn't work out that way.
Shadows still on the VA nest....

MEMA Jo said...

Check out VA feeding -

MEMA Jo said...

VA feeding was still just the one

paula eaglet momster said...

Just saw feeding at Norfolk, only saw 1 chick

KateAZ said...

At the last Norfolk feeding I could see one chick and one egg.I think folks said there were three eggs but I couldn't see another egg. Maybe she's moved them around so that the one about to hatch is in the clear???

wvgal_dana said...

Me too Jo it will be what it will be hee hee time to watch cams not worry why time is messed up again.

Oh watch out everyone I am having Senior Moments again.

wvgal_dana said...

Oh my BW eagle nest is over exposed and there are lots of chicks in the nest LOL

wvgal_dana said...

Back to only two chicks now Lisa and them are usually on top of problems there.

wvgal_dana said...

Buta Buta is moving around on top om logs

wvgal_dana said...

Lun Lun just dragged Buta Buta off the top. Buta Buta got to the one limb and Lun Lun dropped her. That was a pretty long ways to fall. Now I don't see Buta Buta on the screen at all. Hope she is ok.

wvgal_dana said...

OK got to see Buta Buta she is walking looks ok. Now she is climbing up the pole in a different area. This is where the hammock is. There goes Lun LUn after her again. Buta is hold onto log for dear life. Lun Lun must want to nurse her. I do think in the end Lun Lun will win out.

wvgal_dana said...

Well if that wasn't crazy Lun Lun did get her off the top log. Backed up dragging Buta Buta with her into the hammock. Hammock turned they both flopped out onto ground.

MEMA Jo said...

Hi Kate - Definitely 3 eggs at VA - have seen photos of them. I also saw what you saw: 1 chick and 1 egg.
Hope that nest gets full sunshine soon because with the shadows it's difficult to see.....

glo said...

Sometimes I jsut get so exhasoerated..mind if I sigh...S I G H !!!! Ok thanks for listening.

MEMA Jo said...

ButaButa thinks she is safe from Momma now..........I've seen LunLun pull her down from the top before.
Panda updates states that due to ButaButs's weight now that LunLun can't really handle catching her!!

MEMA Jo said...

I hope whoever was watching LunLun and ButaButa is getting a whooper of a good belly laughing right now.

I see they are both ok - but o'boy what a tumble. Funniest part was when LunLun jumped in that hamock and bounced right up and grabbed ButaButa and fell back into the hammock and then rolled our of it with her cub in arms...............

MEMA Jo said...

ButaBUta must have run up that log to the top really fast...

MEMA Jo said...

Check out VA

MEMA Jo said...

I need to leave for a few hours.
Hope someone is here monitoring OUR nest and the VA nest. Keep good comments..... BBL

wvgal_dana said...

Wow did anyone catch the fly in at our nest?????

paula eaglet momster said...

But it looks like Belle is still on the nest - I caught the tail end of it, only saw one eagle in the nest.

MEMA Jo said...

The Virginia Lady is acting like there is something going on down under. Both adults were there a few mins ago... Maybe Dad went for more food because there might be more mouths to feed???

MEMA Jo said...

All thru the VA feeding there was just 1 fuzzy head ... When she went to sit down the camera must have betrayed my eyes but I almost thought I saw 2... Couldn't be... Anyone else watching...

KateAZ said...

Jo... I think I saw what you saw... a dark little grey spot to the left of the feeding chick. It was too fast to be sure. Guess we have to keep watching.

paula eaglet momster said...

Yes Dana, you were right...that was a switch earlier....Lib on the nest now.

paula eaglet momster said...

Was just adjusting in VA, still could see only 1 chick and 1 egg

paula eaglet momster said...

Feeding at BW

normabyrd said...

HI---I have been catching up my emails----I said earlier on the other thread, that I thought the VIRGINIA LADY was acting "strange" again----I agree with JO---

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg turning our nest

paula eaglet momster said...

YES, THERE ARE 2 chicks IN VA

paula eaglet momster said...

Feeding in VA

paula eaglet momster said...

Parent is so patient feeding that chick

normabyrd said...

PAULA---I was watching her trying to feed the chick---That chick doesn't have an appetite like the BW group have---That appears to be one deep nest---Kept thinking I was seeing 2---then maybe not--but if you think 2--I agree---

normabyrd said...

That was AWESOME to see the VIRGINIA LADY so close to the camera---I enlarged the pic---I agree she was so very patient & waited until the chick was ready to take a bite---WOW--WOW! That was BREATH TAKING TO WATCH!!!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Those Eaglets are BW are just too cute...they just sleep where they drop!

Just Vicky said...

Yep, Norfolk has 2 peepers!

On another note, since our live feed doesn't want to work, "IT WOULD BE NICE IF THE OTHER CAM WOULD REFRESH MORE FREQUENTLY????!! I wonder if that is a possibility???

paula eaglet momster said...

egg turning our nest

glo said...

Yep Norfolk is now a family of 4 for sure, and yes Vcky it owuld be great since we can't seem to get any dependable live feed, if we could at least get a more frequent refresh on the still cam.

paula eaglet momster said...

There is most definitely 2 little eaglet heads popping up at VA for this feeding :):)

paula eaglet momster said...

Don't you know how to refresh the still cam? f5 or reload

normabyrd said...

OUR EGGS ARE ALL ALONE!!---No one is watching!!!

Mits said...

EAGLE AT KENT.

Mits said...

Both eagles at KENT NEST.

Mits said...

THEY WERE JUST MATING AGAIN.

paula eaglet momster said...

:) Should be eggs there mighty soon! They mate more as egg laying nears!

normabyrd said...

HI MITS---Are you sure about KENT---I had decided that maybe they were like the WE group--They are Two Females & they are waiting for the Male to join them--ho! ho!

normabyrd said...

1 EAGLE on side of tree at KENT!!

Mits said...

Just what Paula, said, Norma the closer the egg the more they mate.

Mits said...

Eagle at osprey nest.

Mits said...

Feeding at BW....James River Bridge Falcon has 3 eggs. Same site as VA eagles and Shenadoah falcons.

MEMA Jo said...

The little chicks at VA are just as cute as the little chicks at BW BUT
OURS are even going to be cuter!!!!
It is just such an awesome experience to be able to watch these feedings up so close--it's like watching a miracle happening.

Mits said...

Anybody else getting half of a block screen at our nest?

Mits said...

I can't refresh ours at all.:(

Mits said...

Been trying for over 15 minutes, can't get our cam to refresh. Didn't someone mention the other day the cam would be fixed soon????

Mits said...

Falcon at JRB is sound asleep.

Mits said...

Both eagles at VA.

wvgal_dana said...

Well by George Norfolk did have their little one today. Knew all morning she was acting funny.

I see two little fuzzy head congtrs Mom & Dad in Norfolk.

As far as our cam someone needs to ask Steve or NCTC what their meaning of "fix" is. Cause it surely it not what Websters Dictionary has.

Mits said...

I have been waiting for a year to see the beginning activity of our nest, since I didn't know about it til about 3 weeks after Spunk was hatched last year, and I'm not a happy camper, Dana.

Mits said...

One eagle eats food grinds it up then gives it to the eagle who is feeding the chicks at VA.

Mits said...

James River Bridge Falcon is now awake and staring at the cam, she is just beautiful.

paula eaglet momster said...

Yes, Mits, seems our cam is down again. I noticed it too. Way back when I was telling people how to refresh...then I had trouble getting the page back up...then off to do other things and didn't get to check it out again until I got home....

LOOKS LIKE WE ARE OUT OF BUSINESS....AGAIN.

Mits said...

Just a tad frustrating, huh, Paula?

paula eaglet momster said...

I hope someone can get the darned thing working tomorrow....

I won't be around tomorrow until late tomorrow night, son has surgery.

Mits said...

Eagle laying back down in nest at KENT.

Mits said...

Hoping every thing turns out alright for your son, Paula.

Mits said...

Both eagles at KENT.

paula eaglet momster said...

Oh yeah, for sure, Mits. Frustrating.

Son will be just fine, though :) Thanks.

wvgal_dana said...

I know I too Mits wanted to see the activity before the hatchings too. I got to the cam last season before any hatchings but eggs were already laid. So I'm right along with you Mits.

Mits said...

Well, at least we are all in the same boat...going upstream with no wind:(:(.

wvgal_dana said...

The people showed for the concert but the band didn't show. That's NCTC cam.

Mits said...

I sure we could think of a dozen or so descriptions of the NCTC CAM, Dana:)

Mits said...

Nestoration going on at Hancock nest.

wvgal_dana said...

Both eagles at Kent

MEMA Jo said...

Well, I missed all the aggravation and frustration this afternoon-but believe me I can still feel it!

Kent nest is very busy. One up and one down.

Mits said...

I just can't believe all the stuff we have missed of the season of our nest, thank goodness for all the other eagle and falcon cams.

Mits said...

Dana and Jo, did you get the e-mail I sent from Loraine??

Mits said...

Seem to be working at a frantic pace at KENT.

Mits said...

More mating at KENT:):):)!

MEMA Jo said...

I finished reading Loraine's email to you. It had a lot of interesting items in it.. I was checking out all the links in it.

MEMA Jo said...

Lisa sure had a lot of pics to post on the gallery this time. Amazing to see both adults so often together at the nest sharing the feeding of the chicks.

MEMA Jo said...

I am going to go over to play some games... BBL

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good evening everyone. I am getting ready for bed. Feeling pretty crummy! I do now have posters on my bedroom wall of little teenagers. Mattie has been busy. I buy her one magazine and get my walls decorated. I love it. She can have at it!

Hope all have a good night. Hopefully WHATEVER is wrong with our cam will be fixed permanently soon. I would hate to miss their hatching this year.

MEMA Jo said...

Good Night Sharon

Mits said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE! Hope you feel better, Sharon

movin said...

Oh...sh..shoes!! The cam is frozen with half the screen in bright sunlight and half completely black?!

Do we at least know if they have hatched an egg yet?

I see the Kent pair are setting on the nest as though hatching an egg, but when she got up the cup was bare.

Hope the electronics to our cam is easy to fix this time.

Jim

wvgal_dana said...

Night everyone.

Good Morning Suzanne

MEMA Jo said...

Going to call it a day!

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



Not so good morning, Suzanne unless they have fixed our cam

Suzanne said...

Good morning, eagle world. Good morning Dana and Jo. Not sure if the cam is workiing or not, kind of looks like it always does at 4 in the morning! Through the blinds, but do see someone in the nest. Now to see if they move during a refresh. I'll let ya know. Lord BW just woke up and looked around, then head right back under wing. Well, the blinds move during a refresh, but that's all at the moment. Have to wait till later when they wake up, still too early for them.

Came down a different way this morning, met my boss on 15 and followed him. It's about 10 minutes and 3 miles quicker! Man, 10 minutes is a lot of time in the AM!! Not sure I can do it again, though, we'll see. Doesn't make sense, went to DC and came back out again, but it is quicker. Kinda nice to see the Wash Monument so early in the AM, though.

May try to read blogs to find out what happened to the cam. All have a great eagle day. Guess we don't have a hatchling yet. I was guessing today for the first big boss chick. We'll see.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

paula eaglet momster said...

MOrning, Suz.

Glad to see the cam is working (I hope). It got stuck around 4-5pm yesterday. It was still stuck around 11:30 last night. Maybe someone from NCTC is already in?

Yup, it is updating, head is no longer facing backwards.

Have a great day!

paula eaglet momster said...

And how the heck do you get up and function at this ungodly hour? :)

Suzanne said...

Lord BW is fussing with the chicks. Haven't seen any movement on our cam. Oh, now he has a bite.

Suzanne said...

OMG, morning Paula! What in the world are you doing up at this ungodly hour! I'm used to it now, but it is ridiculous, if you think about it! Didn't see any movement on our cam, but if you say it's updating, I believe you. I'm not really watching so closely. Lord BW is fussing with his kids again, so I've been watching him.

paula eaglet momster said...

Have to be at the hospital at 6am this morning for son's surgery.

All have a great day!

Hope we see and eaglet today!

Suzanne said...

Paula, you still there? She's turning the eggs, can see all 3 of them!

Suzanne said...

Paula, I hope your son's surgery goes well, and he comes out just fine!

Suzanne said...

This is more than a normal egg roll. She keeps fussing with the eggs. Dang! Black pic!! I hate it when that happens. She's back on the eggs again! I'm saying she, but I have no idea if it is Liberty or Belle.

Suzanne said...

Not much activity in our nest after the last egg inspection. Lord BW keeps waking up and looking around. Maybe the chicks are awake and hungry. He's still trying to sleep, though.

Suzanne said...

Falcon on corner ledge. Harrisburg still hasn't changed the time on their cam! What are they waiting for????

Suzanne said...

Egg turning time again. Still see 3 eggs.

Suzanne said...

Parent just moved back to look at the eggs, maybe from a different angle. Or maybe one is hatching???? Only time will tell.

Suzanne said...

Well, we're finished looking at them, gonna turn them again. Ok, must be turned just right, back on the eggs.

Suzanne said...

Lord BW waking up and messing with the chicks again.

Suzanne said...

Lord BW head back under wing. Ours snoozing again too.

Suzanne said...

Man, poor Lord BW is only getting little cat naps. Those chicks must be ready to get up.

Suzanne said...

Head back under wing. Got to go for a short, BRB.

Suzanne said...

Bless his heart, he's awake again.

Suzanne said...

Well, our parent was just checking eggs again, had head under her tummy. She's looking around now. Lord BW is also looking around. Starting to get daylight now, so they'll probably both stay awake now.

wvgal_dana said...

Suzanne you here

Suzanne said...

Chicks are visible!

Suzanne said...

Hi Dana, yup, I'm here. Had to step out for a sec.

Suzanne said...

Parent back.

Suzanne said...

Ours turning eggs again.

wvgal_dana said...

I have sent 2 pieces of mail through Eaglet_Momster group. I know you said you get that late. So I also sent them to your mail box. OK?? So you have mail and then later you'll get it through the Momsters group.

Suzanne said...

Back on our eggs. Lord BW talking to chicks under his tummy.

Suzanne said...

Got them Dana, and already replied to you.

wvgal_dana said...

Suzanne did you read the above??

wvgal_dana said...

OK Suzanne I'm back to bed. Talk later ty for our nest updates.

Suzanne said...

Getting daylight, beautiful red sunrise out today!

Suzanne said...

Lord BW walking away, chicks peeking. There they are. Cutie pies!

wvgal_dana said...

Suzanne you have a reply. Night for now.

Suzanne said...

Chicks snuggling now.

Suzanne said...

Both in our nest!

Suzanne said...

Nighty night, Dana. Lord BW back with chicks. Think there was just a switch in our nest.

Suzanne said...

Lord BW back on the kids.

Suzanne said...

There was a switch in our nest, believe that's Little Liberty on the eggs now. He is soooooo much smaller than Big Belle!

Suzanne said...

Chicks are alone again.

Suzanne said...

Awwwwwwww, little chick faceoff. How cute.

Suzanne said...

BW parent back. Can't see tail too well, don't know if it's the Lord or Lady BW.

Suzanne said...

Well, it's Lord BW. Seems he's quite the modern eagle... he does most of the sitting!!

Suzanne said...

Guess it's breakfast time. Chicks sure are watching dad. Yup, there goes first bite.

mauley said...

Good Morning Suzanne, wonder how much longer till we are momsters again? Have a blessed one. donna

Suzanne said...

Morning, Donna. I'm guessing first one will hatch sometime today. Just for giggles, I'm guessing.

Suzanne said...

Falcon on corner ledge, pic is fuzzy, though.

Suzanne said...

Well, Lady BW brought in a big fish, and the chicks are eating again.

Suzanne said...

Both BW parents feeding chicks.

Suzanne said...

Looks like Lady BW is feeding the chicks, Lord BW is feeding himself.

Suzanne said...

Think Lord BW left, and fish head is gone.

Suzanne said...

Uh oh, our cam was getting squiggly lines on it, so did a refresh. Doesn't want to come up now. Dang!!!

Suzanne said...

Finally! Won't do that again, squiggly lines or not.

NEW THREAD FROM STEVEN---

Tuesday

Apologies for my neglect on this site.  I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
