My goodness, new thread is up but nobody's here. Never experienced that before. Megan and Paula sounds like you had a great day. Beautiful day in Shepherdstown--great day for a hatching.
Its a nice day for a hatching, Sandra:).
Thanks for the heads up for New Thread. Steven ty for the thread.Hi Sandra they will be over.Brought this from over page:You must go to Maine eagle page. Click on eagle forum. Look for "2nd egg laid" there is a link there click on that. Oh my goodness a video shows her laiding the 2nd egg. IT IS A MUST WATCH !!!!
Good Afternoon Mits,Dana,Sandra. Jennifer where did you go? Come on in here.Thanks for spotting the new thread. Thanks, Steve Blackwater trip for Paula & Megan sounds like it was one beautiful experience.I know they have both been there before but such good weather they had & great time of the year to go down for sightings of nesting eagles & the returning osprey.Sharon Enjoy the band concert at Concord. Dana I had watched that video up in ME. It is very interesting.
Not sure what went on at OUR nest. There was a fly out - 3 naked eggs - then fly in which I didn't see due to taking a pic & then refreshed with eagle on the eggs again. Not sure if it was a switch - it looks like it's Belle still there.
Hello, Jo, yes, Jennifer gave us the update and split...come back:):):). Soooo glad Paula and Megan had a good day, I can just imagine how crowded that place can get.
LOL.. I'm here. Just busy. I wish the live cam was up. Last year the kids and I watched every day as the chicks hatched, grew and fledged. It was the most amazing thing. We were really looking forward to it this year, but the live cam is iffy at best, so it looks like we're going to miss out on stuff. *waves*
(((hugs))) to you and the kids, Jennifer...hoping our chicks wait til the live feed comes up, but still going to keep an eye on them today, just in cast:).
Man, Belle just jumped up really fast and looked under her chest???
Feeding time at VA.
It is a beautiful day for a hatching. Nice and fairly warm too. :)
I don't know what Belle did around 1:53 when she jumped up & flew off and then came back. Don't know if something is disturbing her or what.
She does look a little jumpy this afternoon, wish the live-feed were up.
The video from ME that Dana mentioned you should watch http://media.putfile.com/ Maine-Mar-8-07-2nd-egg It really is the best I have seen
MAINE'S STILL AND VIDEO IS BACK UP..audio does not seem to be working.
I given this some thought. My answer to myself is this. If Maine can use their "live feed" and make a video of the laying of eggs. So can NCTC for us!!! If they don't want to do that then. The answer to myself is this.Get the LIVE FEED UP AND WORKING!!! ( :
Is there any chance that Liberty is nesting now? I mean I know there's a chance it is him but what do you think?
Man I wish we had WingBlings!!!
Yes, Dana, I agree 100%. When I was looking at the nest, I too thought it could be LIB, Jo, but til Belle is there I have a hard time figuring out who is who.
Jo, I think that looks like Liberty, too.I put some pics on Momsters of Blackwater yesterday. Also, I put all of them in a slideshow...just go to the blog at eagletmomsters.blogspot.comor just click on my name. I put all my pics on there from yesterday, I only left out a couple of duplicates :)
Great, Paula. I'm headed over.Thanks for putting up this week's album.
Dana, That was a viewer that did the video you saw, not someone from the site. I agree. We need the live feed up this week. We have chicks that will be a hatchin'
Well, Paula the slideshow was awesome! Can't get over the beautiful sunset you saw especially with the eagle perched in the tiptop of the tree.I loved all the owls they showed! They had quite a variety (but no 'Big Momma' owl) Question: Why were 3 feathers passed around and 3 returned? Why not 2 returned & 1 brought back as a keepsake??? lol You and Megan will have lots ofmemories to cherish from this trip.
LOL Jo. Think they would have been searching everyone for that feather!An interesting fact I learned about eagle molting yesterday. When they molt their feathers, which they do once a year, they will lose the same feather on each/opposite sides of the body at the same time.
Really enjoyed the slide-show, Paula:):).
I'm having trouble with our cam!
Guess I got the bug that Dana and Megan had...black screen after many refreshes. I'll try something else.
Great! Same thing just happened to me when it refreshed. I put it down & will try to bring it up again. Didn't work..
That was weird its back now.
Ok its back, but can't refresh it.
Now it is gone again....DAMN...JMHO:(.
I have a pic but, it has not refreshed on its own for 10 minutes.
Time for some of that fish at VA.
I give Up Going to go outside & get some fresh air and sunshine.......... BBL
I'm right behind you, Jo...slamming the door:).
Well, if there's a hatching today we won't see it. At least right now I'm getting a "Service Unavailable" message.
Even more weird, the eaglecam feed item has been erased on my history. In the immortal words of Charlie Brown "Good Grief!"
Your not alone, Sandra, Jo and I are having problems, I get the pic up somtimes, but, it its 10 minutes behind real time and when I try to refresh, it goes blck.
My is back and refreshing automatically.
My cam is up - correct date - correct DST - and is refreshing. I always concerned myself with a frozen frame repeating itself when I see similar movements.... I wish it were time for a switch or an egg roll or something so I could be certain it is the real thing.Dinner time here BBL
It's the real thing -- Eagle just took a heads up look upward in the tree. Now I feel better.Going to Eat...........
Good day, everyone,Did I miss it, or have none of the nests hatched a young eaglet today?From the few comments I read, sounds like you, who went to the open house really had a good time.The notes on BW have been interesting the last couple of days...I didn't realize they had different Osprey pairs each year, and it looks like some new birds are already checking the 'fix-er-ups' this Spring. BW's lost most of its furnishings in the wind, but the foundation and flooring looks sturdy....Jim
After reading the comments, I looked again at our cam, and it's working perfectly out here in So. Cal.All that solar storm stuff from yesterday has not repeated today...haven't been knocked off line once. Might be affecting other areas though...it sounds like it moves from area to area from what I got on the tape the cable company supplied.I couldn't get the Maine video earlier, but that's up now too...there's just not a lot of hatching (or laying in Kent) of eggs happening today.Did you all get the problems cured for those who could not access our cam the other day? If so, how did you cure it?Jim
Hey there Eagle Friends, Do we have a baby yet in "our" nest?
Hi, Vicky...I'm not the most "up" on the subject, but I am here...It does not appear to me that Belle has hatched the first one as yet.Jim
Well she needs to work on that egg!! It's our turn to have one Jim! So glad she doesn't have all that snow in there for this event! You keep watching Jim!
Guess all the rest of this gang are busy in other places!
Both eagles were just at our nest, still look like 3 eggs still in tact, going to look at pics.
Must be dinner time back East, Vicky...I haven't seen you on the blog much lately...good to hear from you.Jim
Got the shot of Belle leaving, but missed the shot of 3 eggs.
Did you just see the switch at our nest, JIM?
No, Mits, I was probably busy writing comments or something (hahaha).Wow, the picture on our WV cam is about as good as it gets right now!I believe the 3 egg story though ... they just don't act like anything unusual has happened now.Jim
Things should start happening soon, last egg at WVA was laid on the 12th of FEB., Jim
So mild hear today, going to cook on the grill again tonight.BBL.
Last year, Mits, was it 5 days or 7 between the 1st and the last, I can't recall for sure now.It could be anytime between now and say the 14th when the 'Top Bird' hatches.Jim
Paula I know that it was a viewer at Maine. They had excess to "live feed". What I am saying is since we as viewers don't have excess to live feed and NCTC does. They should make videos for us to click on to see. Especially since it is nearing time for hatching. So we can see the LIVE HATCHING.
Good evening, my eagle buddies. Back from the concert. It was wonderful. They performed a song named "New Dawn" about the Enola Gay and the bombing of Hiroshima. You could really feel the emotion in that song. It was really awesome. I did see three still intact eggs in our nest. I am glad one didn't hatch while I was away! :):):)Hope all is well with you today!!
Kent eagle is in nestCam 3 still down
KENT should be laying sometime end of this week or beginning of next, hope they get cam 3 back up soon,HELLO, MISS SHARON.
Hi Sharon - Glad you're home after such an enjoyable afternoon of music!
BELLE IS BACK, LIB TOOK OFF.
Think she brought a snack for later.
Dusk settles on BW Osprey nest with an eagle there.Norfolk Va darkness has closed around the nest for the night.Our nest 7:15pm Liberty turning eggs. Right now 7:29pm Belle has taken over for the night from Liberty.BW eagle nest lays on chicks to keep them warm.
Our cam needs "rabbit ears" for adjusting the picture.
Audio is back on at Maine.
I loved it staying light until almost 7:30 or a little later this evening.But I really have to work on my sleep habits!!!!! Going to watch some TV - maybe-depends if anything is on. No eagle at Kent nests - all other visible cams have their nesting eagles. Come On Kent!!
My Maine cam is not shutting down after 2 minutes. Did they change that?
Hope our cam and live-feed come up better tomorrow. Going to watch COLD CASE AND WITHOUT A TRACE, both are new tonight.
At 8:45pmEST which is correct time now I sent myself an email. Time shows 7:45pmEST..... Why?? Can that be changed anywhere??? Anyone please ???
I hadn't check my email message yet, Dana. Is your computer time correct with the new DST?
My computer time is correct, but as Jo, knows my comcast time on e-mails is always screwed up....set my clock manually this a.m.
Dana, you can manually change your clock's time, try double clicking on your time!
Dana, my mail updated when I changed my time. Double click on display time (mine is at bottom bar 8:56pm) Date & time properties will come up Just change the HOUR by placing your cursor on the 7 and make it 8 right under the clock. OPEN TIME ZONE - At the bottom of the map - be certain there is NOT a check on the statement aboutautomatically adjusting the clock. Remove the CHECK - click on APPLY - and then on OK.......This should control what is on your email
Well, I just looked at our cam and it was 30 minutes slow in the time. Then, I went to refresh the page and it won't!!! Is anybody's cam down? %@&*!!!!!
Well hello there Vicky.How are you doing?
My clock updated on its own. My clock is also set with the Atomic clock!!
If you don't take the check off the auto adjustment you will just lose another hour in April.... lolSharon - I'll check the cam because my computer went wacky & I also got kicked out of hotmail. BE back with you all ............
Sharon - it's down. Black Screen. I think it is those Cosmic Rays or whatever Jim was telling us about!!I have to go back & see what he said about them...........All that solar storm stuff from yesterday has not repeated today...haven't been knocked off line once. Might be affecting other areas though...it sounds like it moves from area to area from what I got on the tape the cable company supplied.
Just how did you get it set with the Atomic Clock? You're so special!
THAT'S WHAT IT WAS DOING THIS AFTERNOON. SHARON.
DANA You're keeping us in suspense concerning your clock! You best not go off to play cardsand forget that we are waiting lol
EAGLE IN KENT NEST
That is what I did I didn't mean to put ESTI had click on my time on buttom toolbar. Unchecked the automatically. Changed the time to daylight savings time which is now 9:08pm. Clicked apply. Like I said composed an email sent to myself and it is showing 8:08pm.Why does anyone know what to do I have Outlook express.
MITS - QUESTION Who do we want to be in the Kent nest--- Star or Spirit? I forget which one lays the eggs lol
Hi Mema Jo and everyone!!
Goodness surely it is time for Kent to get with the season!!
I have Hotmail MSNGuess I don't know your answer as towhether you also have to change it somewhere on Outlook... Look around in Outlook like properties.....
Mema Jo, how could you forget who lays the eggs??
LOL, let me go check, I always get them confused....I think Star is the lady.
Hi again Vicky.. Loraine out at Kent had told Mits that it is usually mid to late March when their eggs come.But that could mean anytime now.
This link will let you download the atomic clock utility to your computer. http://www.worldtimeserver.com/atomic-clock/
Dana. Try restarting your machine. Probably Outlook is unaware that you have changed the puter's time.Jim
Star is the lady, Spirit is the male, this is her second mate, the others name was Patriot.
Think Jim is right Dana, restart your computer!
Dana Hubby says on OUTLOOK to go into OPTIONS and look for something about the time.......
JIM Did you hear?We must be having a solar storm down at the cam! Keeps going off on us. Has done this a couple times today. What do you say?
Cam is back, thank God!
Kent eagle looks as though he/she has a seat on the edge of the nest
Really strangeMy clock shows 9:22pm I send myself and email using outlook express time on it shows 8:22pm.Using Yahoo Mail my clock shows 9:23pm time on email that came into yahoo was 18:23pmWhat is up with this????
My time automatically updated in everything on my computer including Outlook Express.
Well I hope then that that is STAR in the Kent nest for the night!
CONGRATS EAGLE EYE SHARON 100 lbs of wax power
MITS another question: Which eagle did Loraine say had a mark on its head and above which eye was it?
Dana - can you download the atomic clock to work within your computerhttp://www.worldtimeserver.com/ atomic-clock/
LOL.........Jo, got a question about pandas. I believe the male has the mark over his left eye.
Comcast tells me that if it does not recognize the time on my computer it just goes to Greenwich time...
Its 6:45p.m. at KENT, but she looks like she wants to spend the night, but she has done this before.
Mits Question: What in the devil am I seeing on DC Panda cam 1
Dana, I think Yahoo uses PST. I have noticed the difference on my emails, too. Even before today they were under PST.Mits, I think Spirit's first name was Patriot. They named them in a contest. But somehow, people started calling him Spirit. So now they are Star and Spirit
Did I really get the wax? Didn't even know it! How is that for different!
Thank you Sharon I went into my clock set it back 1 hour. Then check the automatic to change it. Rebooted computer. Sent myself an email and time is perfect. Thank you very much.
Could be solar storms, Mema Jo,It knocked my Internet connection out several times Saturday morning, and a cousin, who lives fairly near, says it messed up her TV for 4-5 hours the day before...Also, as far as I know, our cam has been up all day here, although I'm getting a venetian blind affect now that it is dark.Lets blame it on solar storms...I think Mar. 11 is the last day anyway.Has Dana restarted her puter yet? I think that should do the trick if she's sure she has it set correctly on the taskbar.JimJim
Paula that made the time in Yahoo mail come in the right time also perfect.
Congrats, Dana! One more mysterious computer problem resolved!!! lol
BLACKWATER Nest Update03/11/07:We've updated our Eagle Cam Web Log with news of the chicks' development and our Eagle Festival
BOTH EAGLES AT KENT
Haven't a clue, looks like Mei on cam 2.
Spirit just flew away from the Kent nest & Star is still there.
Look at her look at the cam, she is sooo pretty
MT NEST AT KENT
Just saw that, guess tonight's not the night:(.
GOOD NIGHT ALL!
Calling it a dayGood Night AllPleasant dreams & peaceful sleepPrayers being said for allGood Morning, SuzanneThe weekend sure flew right by.Eggs in all the nests except Kent & The John Hancock Site.THIS SHOULD BE OUR WEEK FOR HATCHING CHICKS !
Ok Mema JO, let the drum roll begin, time to crack one of those beautiful eggs!
Maybe we can get Andrew to help us with the drum rolls??
Morning, eagle world. Morning, MemaJo. Yup, chicks should be popping out this week, can't wait. Let's hope the cam stays up for us to see! Somebody on the nest, can't tell who, and Lord BW is on his chicks. Man, totally modern dad! He's usually the one on the nest in the am! Thought that was Mom's time, but guess they're proving me wrong!Beautiful night out, tad cold, but no rain/snow/fog, so driving in was a breeze. Guess if driving in at this hour can be a breeze... Beautiful, LOW, almost half moon, bright white, rising in the sky as we speak.Lord BW just woke up, looked around, not back to sleep. May try to read yesterday's blog if I have time, to see what I missed.All have a great eagle day! Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!
Oh, our parent is awake and checking eggs. Can still see 3 eggs. oops, back on them now.
Lord BW checking the chicks. Our parent has head back under wing.
Lord BW checking on his chicks again. Well, head back under wing. Just checked the photos on eaglet momsters! Paula, looks like you had a wonderful time seeing all those raptors! Specially watching the eagles soar, those pics are awesome! Lord BW checking chicks again. Maybe they're getting hungry.
Falcon on the bar in Harrisburg.
Other one is on the corner of the ledge.
Well, I really hate to say it, but our parent hasn't moved since she/he checked the eggs a while ago. Must be really tired. Lord BW is awake and looking around. Something is on the corner of the ledge in Harrisburg, but can't tell what it is. It's not a falcon. Can see some kind of light coming through the tree on Kent, cam 1. Lord BW just tucked his head back under wing. Not getting up yet.
Chicks are awake!!
Looks like Big Belle, and she's waking up. BW chicks are snuggling.
Parent back with chicks.
Yup, breakfast is being served!
Dang, cam just went down. Ok, I'll wait a min, see??? Back.
Good Morning everyone. Looking forward to a very exciting week of eagle viewing. Time to go crank up some cams here .
Wow, big fish for leftovers from chick's breakfast. Belle still looking around.
Morning, Glo. The BW chicks just had breakfast. Getting daylight out, so the "blinds" have gone from our cam! Lots of leftovers on the Harrisburg ledge! Ugh!
Egg turning time.
Both in our nest!
Man, think that was Big Belle who just arrived, Lib was on the eggs.
Egg turning again.
Little prince and princess are eating again.
Dad moved the fish, chicks are really keeping an eye on him!
Love the way he takes turns feeding one chick then the other.
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE, HAVE A GOOD MONDAY.
Good Morning Suzanne, Glo and Mits. Looks like it's going to be a nice warm day.VA feeding the one chick don't see another fuzzy head. So they still have one egg to hatch.Watching BW lady she has been in that position a long time. I want to see "Chubs and Tiny". Hope she moves soon.Our nest is looking around no action like going to hatch.
Have a 3 hour meeting, ugh! Then leaving after that. Blog at everyone tomorrow. Falcon on bar.Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!
See you tomorrow Suzanne you'll have a sunny ride home.
Now we are getting to see BW's 2 chicks. It is going to be a warm day so I'm expecting that we will see alot of them.
Falcon has an egg at the Shenadoah site.
Cam 3 at Kent is showing correct time...Yea!
Adult and juvies at CC.
That is some beautiful view at Shenadoah.
Hi Mits thanks I'll check it out.
Eagle calling on MaineMits she sure does have an egg on the cliff.
I'm wondering if Norfolk Va is having another egg hatching.
Update and good picture on the VA eagle site...1 down 2 to go:).
GOOD A.M. EAGLE BUDDIES---Just looked in on NORFOLK LADY---She's acting STRANGE again!----So much catching up----Any one know what's happening in the SHEPHERDSTOWN HILTON?----Would love to see those little ones hatch-----
HEY---SUZANNE---Have a GREAT meeting---Sorry--I am missing you--HELLO GLO---Great vacation?---I bet that "little one" had you wrapped around her little finger??----HI MITS & DANA---What's happened over the weekend?----Haven't read the blog just scanned today's people----I think you may be right MITS---NORFOLK LADY may have the best nest---She is beautiful----DANA---Going to check on the ME video---Sounds exciting!!
Morning Norma gal..yes videos were very good. Plus BW eagle page has update on gallery. Great pics.
THANKS DANA & MEMA JO---Enjoyed the video from ME!!!---Thought he should have ended it by saying---THATS ALL "FOLKS"-----ho! ho!
Looks like a deflated balloon in cam 3 at KENT.
Just did the "full screen" on Norfolk while she fed chick. Did not see any other chicks yet. I still think an egg is trying to hatch.Norma like Mits said Falcon at Shenandoah view is on ledge there is one egg.
Falcon is awake at Shenadoah, with her egg.
SHARON---They have changed the structure of the logs in Atlanta for the "LITTLE PRINCESS"---But look who is at the TOP!!!---Don't you wish BUTA BUTA could be outside---Bet she could climb a tree in a minute---Like our other climber---"Little Prince"---I still think he would like a "playmate"---ho!
Looks like Belle just arrived
SHENANDOAH FALCON--#4---Just flew away & left---beautiful brown egg!!W/check the others!!
Good pic of our 3 eggs
Morning Paula yes we just had a shift change. Liberty was on the nest now Belle is. Beautiful 3 eggs. The way the light hit the eggs looked like 4 lol but 3.
I hope we get a good look to see if there are 3 eggs or 2 1/2 eggs in that egg well....
Oh Dana - you did what I had hoped!Are all 3 eggs there and in tact?
MITS #2 & #4----SHENAND.-- BOTH have eggs---#2 has a lot of fog---Is this 1 egg shot from 2 different angles?
Sent you a pic, Jo....one in front looks a little elongated, maybe trying to get out?
New thread up!
