I guess some days it pays to sign it late in order to be first.
Thanks Steve - I'll go get some more action over here.

Mits said...

MORNING

MEMA Jo said...

I was so excited receiving the email from Suzanne about BW chick she spoted! YAHOO!
I think the season despite the snow, sleet and rain is OFF TO A EXCELLENT START this First Day Of March.

Mits said...

quick visit by dad at BW

Mits said...

both eagles Maine

Mits said...

Another quick visit at ME.

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steve. Hope you are feeling better!

Thanks for the heads up, Jo. Have to go to other thread, posted a note to Glo, and still need an answer.

Suzanne said...

Ok, brought over from other thread.

LOL, thanks Dana.

Glo, are you still here? If I send you pics I took this morning, when I think the chick hatched, can you do a video of it?

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks for the call to come over Jo

Really didn't know if I wanted to leave old thread lol so much wonderful happenings.

Again I contragulate Suzanne for the capture of that great picture of the hatched chick at BW.

Hi Jo, Mits, Suzanne (when you get here), Sharon and Glo that was on other thread. Morning to everyone coming in.

Suzanne said...

Eagle in Kent, cam 2.

Suzanne said...

I beat you, Dana. Even brought over my comment from the other thread, for you and Glo.

normabyrd said...

GOOD A.M.EAGLE BUDDIES---MEMA JO & MITS---You all watching for "little eagles"-----Beautiful SUNNY day here so far----SUZANNE always brightens the day!---STEVEN is back too!!---GREAT NEWS---REALLY MISSED YOU!!---Going to read yesterday's blog---

wvgal_dana said...

ROFLMBO Suzanne we posted same time but yep you got there 1st. What you want another contragulations hee hee

Suzanne said...

LOL, thanks, but I'll pass on the congrats, Dana! Just glad I wasn't typing away just to find out after I posted that there was a new thread. That's what I usually do! This time I saw Jo's note in BOLD after a short posting. New BW mom has settled down a bit, just sorta looking around. Now I'm waiting for Lord BW to bring her something to eat!

Kent MT.

wvgal_dana said...

Morning Norma, our still cam plus the Live Feed is up for our cam.

Suzanne said...

Oh, snowing again in Kent!

glo said...

Yes Suzanne actually I am back. I am saving picks from Blackhawk. I have the first pic that we sort of all 3 saw together this morning with the first sign of fuzz or ? baby on it ,

but then of course it was coffee time. If you would like to send that and others you have taken while I was doing coffee and dog treats LOL I always appreciate and love to have them.
I will definitely have BW featured on the FTLOE (For the love of eagles BLOG tonight) well unless I( lose power againtoday for who knows how long. More terrible weather headed my way.

MEMA Jo said...

KENT - Cam 3 still isn't updating
I noticed that late yesterday - I guess we can live with only 2 cams to watch... lol

Suzanne - Now that things have calmed down abit - I didn't see your 1st post...How's your mouth?????

MEMA Jo said...

GLO I hope you are laughing with me after you read your last post-- It does get pretty darn exciting on here when eggs are laid and chicks are hatched.
We need a Bloopers page on which
all of us would have at least one entry if not two or three.

MEMA Jo said...

If Norfolk doesn't soon get their cam operating - we are going to be too late to see any chicks hatch. They'll probably have a full nest of chicks once the cam is back up.

I love the video of the NE egg being laid. Like I said, Never saw such a happy couple..

normabyrd said...

YOU FOLKS certainly have had an EXCITING DAY yesterday---I guess I'll never get caught up---ANIMAL PLANET---had a show----about penguins---they did the same thing---would remove the egg--leave wooden egg--took the eggs to an incubator to hatch----then slowly moved them back in the nest----But these are on MT. TOPS---Very exciting---I read (think it was SHARPE'S) story about how he approached the eaglets to band them---Unbelievable!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Thank you Dana for the heads up on the live feed I tried it a few minutes ago and it wasn't working.

Is mom still in Maine?

Awesome Blackwater chick!

wvgal_dana said...

Jo I'm still riding the "short bus" lol

Suzanne said...

Very sore, MemaJo! Unfortunately, it was a necessary procedure, but glad it's over!

Glo, think the way they were fussing this morning about 5:30ish is when the chick hatched. I took pics almost every refresh. Then of course the new chick.

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE---Same STORY---The "EARLY BIRD" gets the picture---CONGRATS!--Thought of you at dentist!--

wvgal_dana said...

I just looked BW lady laid the 1st egg on Jan 31 hatched March 1 not as long incubation time. wow

Mits said...

Jo, just e-mailed VA again.

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle at Maine is eating

Suzanne said...

Thanks for thinking of me, Norma! I did my pinching!!! Shots are the hardest part. But then comes healing...ugh. Last appt for a while (at least I HOPE it's the last) is Monday, after work. Then hopefully, I'll be good to go for a while!!!

Glo, you have mail.

glo said...

OK Jo Are you insinuating I don't know where I am or what I'm doing. GREAT LOL...I wouldn't have gone back and even noticed except for your little heads up...shall I delete now...probably will don't want folks trying to find that Blackhawk baby LOL. But Blackhawk State Park is like 2 miles form here, I always have to shuffle that by my brain to get to Blackwater. I too so wish Norfolk would be back on; must be a serious problem as they have always been up and running so very quickly....I love the job they have been doing over there. Come on Norfolk fix that cam.

Suzanne Yes yes if you have pictures starting that early please please send them Thank You Thank You.

ALso I too thought lots about you and your dental procedure, been too busy with eagles to say so. Welcome back...you were missed....Hope you get to feeling top shape again very quickly (((((Suzanne)))))

wvgal_dana said...

Gals I'll bbl need to lie down

Suzanne if I miss you going home. Thanks for all the fun this morning gal. Sending me the wonderful capture of a just hatched chick. That pic is in my memory bank of pics that just comes up now and again. ty ((hugs))

glo said...

Ok Thanks Suzanne I'll go check my mail now :)

MEMA Jo said...

Thanks, Mits. They need to get 'r dun with that wonderful cam of theirs.

We have had 2 days straight of
excitement! Don't know how much more I can take.. lol

NORMA ButaButa is up on top of the logs again! I guess she knows that momma will help her down! lol

Mits said...

Jo you have mail.....Sharon you have mail also.

MEMA Jo said...

GLO Don't you dare take time to delete... Probably no one even knew what we were talking about.
I thought instead of flying like an Eagle that you now were going up in the Blackhawk chopper! lol

I hate to leave but I have a morning appointment. I am certain I will have detailed remarks of the happenings while I am gone. Be back early afternoon.

Mits said...

Just got a quick response from VA, hopefully CAM at NORFOLK SHOULD BE BACK TOMORROW.

normabyrd said...

THANKS MITS----I haven't seen the EAGLES there for about a week--

Mits said...

Feeding at CC.

paula eaglet momster said...

Hope you enjoyed the live feed, cause it's down again....

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the thoughts, Glo. Gig you get the pics, Glo? And Dana, talk to you tomorrow! Jo, talk to you tomorrow, too. Morning, Mits, thanks for the VA update. Morning, Paula, and anyone else I haven't spoken to.

Suzanne said...

Oh good grief... that is DID you get my pics, but I already know the answer. Ok, I'm doing gig, you're doing Blackhawk, but I think we all knew what we meant!! Hope so, anyway.

Mits said...

Still cam is acting crappy also.

Suzanne said...

Our egg turning time.

Suzanne said...

Lord BW now on his new chick and egg. Didn't see the switch.

Mits said...

Belle is up and down alot.

Mits said...

Just heard from Lisa, she is anxious to see the chick again.

Mits said...

Both adults at CC.

Suzanne said...

Look at BW quick!

Suzanne said...

Ahhh, he's quick! Got a pic of the new chick and the other egg.

Mits said...

Missed it.

Suzanne said...

I sent a pic to all of Dad, Baby, and egg...

Glo, this is a good shot for the last one if you want.

Suzanne said...

2 Ewwwies osprey nest.

normabyrd said...

What's LURKING in the BW Osprey?--Your kind of birds--MITS----KIDDIN'

normabyrd said...

You are fast SUZANNE!---LATER I have lunch date----everyone take notes---

wvgal_dana said...

Hi I'm back again read comments. Alot of excitement I missed. I'm going to check my email. Maybe Suzanne send me a pic or Mits did.

normabyrd said...

MITS---Read your email from Jim---I'm late--

glo said...

well Suzanne I have decided we have all gotten pretty good at computereze...now we will be learning eagleeze cause definitely don't think or type any better at all when that eagle stuff starts to happen LOL.

Suzanne said...

LOOK AT BW NOW!!!

mauley said...

Hello dear friends, I have been battling migraines a few days now. But I am thrilled with Suzanne pics today of new chick. Also got to see my Ewiees at the osprey nest. Are mits and I the only two who like Ewwwiiess? BBL donna

Suzanne said...

Oh man, did you guys see that?

Suzanne said...

Ok, just sent yet another pic around. Good pic of proud poppa showing us his newborn. Baby has his wings out, and they're pushing the MT shell out of the way. Now I'm waiting for first meal. I know they still have nourishment from the egg sack, but does anybody remember how long that lasts? Think Mom will bring him something to eat later this afternoon or tonight? Take pics!!!

Mits said...

I think so, Donna. Migraines are the worst:(:(:(.

Suzanne said...

Mauley, they're not so bad. Just ugly, that's all. But I guess they do good, cause I think this world would really smell bad without them and other scavengers!

wvgal_dana said...

I just got that pic snapped also Suzanne. Thought you had left.
That was a good shot. We probably got the same pic.

I had been seeing something white sticking out. Was wondering what it was; it is the empty egg shell.

wvgal_dana said...

Mauley do you have any Gatorade???? It helps truly

Suzanne said...

yes, Dana, you can see it quite well, now. OH both home now!!!

Suzanne said...

Ah, guess Mom answered my question! They'res the first meal for the little tyke! A fish.

paula eaglet momster said...

First BW feeding

wvgal_dana said...

Mom is feeding chick

Suzanne said...

Ah, he's moving!

paula eaglet momster said...

Didn't see the chick actually get fed yet.

Suzanne said...

Chick hasn't been fed yet, but think Mom is saving half of it for first feeding later. Probably later this afternoon. Take pics, guys.

Suzanne said...

Time for me to hit the road. All take pics and send them to me. All have a great eagle day watching our new baby and proud parents.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

Oh look, Dad brought in some new grass!!!

Suzanne said...

Well, that was Mom that brought in the new grass, cause Dad's still on the chick and egg. She put the new grass over the fish. Guess that's helping to save it for later. Hee hee, too funny. I really am outta here now, I'm so late!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Baby chick was shown off to us alot. Neat !! ( :

Take care Suzanne see you tomorrow

mauley said...

Thanks I am out for a gatorade right now. BBL I have to teach a night class tonight. Thanks I will try anyghing once. Donna

wvgal_dana said...

Ok Mauley hope you get to feeling better.

Mits said...

Chick is visible at BW!!

Mits said...

IMPORTANT UPDAT FROM LISA ON BW PAGE RE: CHICKS EATING!

Mits said...

MOM is back at BW.

wvgal_dana said...

Have to leave for a while.

Take pics and notes you know I'll read them ty.

Mits said...

BOTH EAGLES AT SC..

Mits said...

PAULA any news out of SC yet??????

paula eaglet momster said...

No new news, Mits. Although we were talking they probably laid their egg around Mar 8th last year. May not see an egg there till next week.

Mits said...

Thanks, Paula, love watching them and weather wise it seems fairly calm there today.

Mits said...

PAULA, do you think we had a false alarm at MAINE last night???:):):)

MEMA Jo said...

From Dr Sharpe: The Two Harbors nest, occupied by a 9-year-old male (K-81) and a 9-year-old female (K-82) laid their first egg on 2/27. With the angle of the camera and the depth of the egg cup, it is unlikely that we will see the eggs until we go to switch them early next week. You will be able to view this switch on-line. Whoo Hoo - another switch..........

paula eaglet momster said...

I went on the Maine forum. They say it's a false alarm, too. I offered my sympathies :) Believe the same thing happened to us!

Mits said...

I feel very fortunate that I got a brief glimse of the egg before it went into the nest bowl. For once I was in the right place at the right time, as I was with NE:):):). Paula, I'm still going to keep a close look at the Maine eagles, I have gotten really attached to them, because of the live-feed and the sounds that they make.

normabyrd said...

The new chick at BW is a beautiful sight---We haven't seen that for a long time!----Do you all think the EAGLES at ME are nesting?

Mits said...

Not yet, Norma, last night was a false alarm.

Mits said...

Chick is visible at BW, parent eating leftovers.

Mits said...

almost looks like she is feeding it.

MEMA Jo said...

Was just looking at the little fuzz ball at BW nest. Pretty soon we will have 3 little fuzz balls!!

MEMA Jo said...

I will be back in a little while.

Mits said...

Feeding is a go at BW

Mits said...

Jo, will be sending you pics for the Momster albums.

Mits said...

LIVE FEED BACK UP.

Mits said...

Both eagles BW

Mits said...

Eagle back in MAINE nest again.

normabyrd said...

I bet they have 1 ton of bamboo on BUTA BUTA---ALL YOU SEE IS A LITTLE "WIGGLE" IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM!----

Mits said...

Eating at BW again.

normabyrd said...

PROUD PARENT at BW!

Mits said...

That little bugger at BW can move.

Mits said...

Mits said...

Great pics coming out of BW now.

normabyrd said...

MITS---Been reading about the CATALINA GROUP----When will they collect these eggs---I thought I read from the blog that it would be tomorrow---I noticed they had posted the birth at BW----

Mits said...

2nd eagle just flew into MAINE...LOT OF CALLING.

normabyrd said...

Some on else has a slow computer--It takes forever for mine to PUBLISH---

normabyrd said...

MT at KENT---The Burrowing Owl is outside---

Mits said...

Norma, they collected the eggs at West End yesterday...go to PAULAS' NAME AND CLICK FOR A 2 PART FILM OF THE COLLECTION BY DR. SHARPE.IT WAS AWESOME.

normabyrd said...

LIB & BELLE will get soaked according to the weather forecast--

Mits said...

NORMA YOU HAVE MAIL.

Mits said...

Lots of egg turning at our nest this p.m.

Mits said...

Belle just flew in with a REALLY BIG FISH

Mits said...

My bad...think that was Lib that brought in fish.....LIVE-FEED IS DOWN AGAIN

Mits said...

And he is letting her eat it.

Mits said...

liberty left.

Mits said...

so many people must be watching MAINE it keeps stopping and starting, think I jus missed some mating.

normabyrd said...

THANKS PAULA----AWESOME video!---Thanks MITS for directing me there-----Do you know what time tomorrow they are coming back----

Mits said...

Norma, they will not be going back to West End, til the chicks have hatched from the eggs. Paula might have the heads up as to when they will be going to 2 Harbors to collect their egg/eggs, but I don't think it will be before next week. But I just don't know enough about there sites. For some reason can't get into their forum this afternoon.

normabyrd said...

THANKS MITS---In my reading---I kept wanting into places---blocked--because I wasn't a member---

glo said...

and Norma if you want to see NE actually lay the egg about the same time all this was happening at west end you can go to my For the Love of Eagles BLOG...it is at the end of Part 2 of the egg exchange for WE which is also there. You probably actually got a FeedBlitz for that in your email this morning.

normabyrd said...

We are getting a cold rain now--forecasting heaviest after midnight---POOR BELLE!----but SUNNY tomorrow afternoon---THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS!

normabyrd said...

THANKS GLO----I think the NE nest didn't know what was happening--ho!
That was COOL---I really appreciate reading your columns---They are GREAT!

Mits said...

Your welcome, Norma, glad you enjoyed them:):)!

Mits said...

Our cam seems to be having a little problem just now.

Mits said...

Ok, finally came back.

MEMA Jo said...

If you notice the 'tenting' it is raining a bit in this area.

Be back soon - placing some of todays shots from Mits in album.

I guess everything this morning hour was from BW. Just wait - we'll have our 'chick' turn..........

MEMA Jo said...

Photos in album on Momsters for today
Lisa has new pics of the chick on BW
Mits, they look like the ones you took.

paula eaglet momster said...

I see we have a tenting eagle :)

Sorry I missed the live feed and the big fish!

Mits said...

THANK YOU, JO:)!

Mits said...

PAULA, The live-feed went down just as the big fish arrived, but I sent JO the pics for the Momster Album:).

Mits said...

No eagles but cam #3 is working again at KENT

MEMA Jo said...

But Paula did you see the Ravens???

That was something else according to the pics I am seeing.

paula eaglet momster said...

I think Grey's is a repeat

paula eaglet momster said...

I got video :) Was pretty awesome. Waiting on youtube to process.

MEMA Jo said...

Mits - what is going on in ME tonight.Should I go see?

paula eaglet momster said...

Those are great pics at BW. That eaglet is just too cute! I can't wait!!! Maybe end of next week, beginning of week after.

MEMA Jo said...

On Momsters it is pretty cool how the poll was set up on the hatching of egg 3. My name popped right out there.

MEMA Jo said...

I just put up SC nest & it was really weird... Large black screen and right smack dab in the middle was the white head of the eagle...........lol

I see that the KENT has all 3 cameras up & running.........no eagles...

MEMA Jo said...

Time for me to go and play some games for relaxation................BBL

Mits said...

Yes, PAULA, Greys' is a repeat and ER will not be back on til sometime is April

Mits said...

All seems quiet at Maine tonight, JO.

paula eaglet momster said...

What! No ER either! Grrrr....

Gonna go update the blog. BRB.

MEMA Jo said...

Nothing happening when I was up there. Hope VA comes on tomorrow. I guess I could go read somewhere on their site as to the hatching of any chicks yet. Be back

Mits said...

Paula, it will be back on with all new episodes on April 12th:(:(.

MEMA Jo said...

Norfolk Cam: The first egg was on Jan 31 - so hatching within the week I would suppose.

Thursday, March 01, 2007
“Technical Difficulties”

The Norfolk Botanical Garden has had some general equipment problems that have caused a temporary blackout of the EagleCam. The Garden is working hard to correct these issues and should have new equipment in place sometime tomorrow.
We should be back up before the eggs start to hatch! Thanks for your patience.

This is about the same thing your email from them said, Mits.

Mits said...

So, Friday or Saturday are the likely dates of the 2nd hatching at BW.

Mits said...

EGGxectly, JO!

Mits said...

Looks like they posted that right after they replied to my e-mail, another team on the ball like Lisa.

Mits said...

Lady B looks awake, she should be resting while she can, going to check their radar.

Mits said...

Not raining in Cambridge.

paula eaglet momster said...

Got the raven videos posted. Still waiting on one more of Barton's Cove, got a nice fly out and fly in and the egg. Just click on my name or go to:

eagletmomsters.blogspot.com

MEMA Jo said...

Ok Paula - not sure I know about Barton's Cove..........

movin said...

Good evening, All...

This morning neither Yahoo or anything they sponsor...blog or weather...was running in this area; although I exchanged Instant Messages with Uncle Dan in Sioux City, who was in the middle of a blizzard, and Yahoo was working there.

Long story, short...it's working tonight, but I'm home too late to see much except BW (really bright, active looking first chick) and NCTC.

Lot of exciting developments in Eagle Land...keep the good reports coming.

Jim

sandyshaw said...

Tenting in the rain at Shepherdstown. I need your prayers again, please, as I just returned from Winchester where Tom will be treated for a serious infection in his knee. Thank goodness for eagles!

paula eaglet momster said...

Video from Dr Sharpe's sunglass cam of his climb to the West End nest.

paula eaglet momster said...

Jo, Barton's Cove is NE

paula eaglet momster said...

And it is on the blog now, too.

paula eaglet momster said...

Sandy,
Hope those medications take hold quick!

MEMA Jo said...

I made my way back - I thought I had gotten lost. Watched all 3 videos and enjoyed them very much. Now I want to see what the lipstick glasses saw.

Sandra I am sure there are days that you think that nothing else could go wrong that hasn't already!
My prayers for Tom are being said and I also am praying for you. Are you saying that Tom is staying in the hospital & receiving treatment?

paula eaglet momster said...

"On Momsters it is pretty cool how the poll was set up on the hatching of egg 3. My name popped right out there. "

Jo, I did this so I knew who voted on what date for the third egg hatching so they can get their prize!

MEMA Jo said...

Sandra, I saw 4 magnets you would love to have at dinner last night at the cracker barrel. Rosters! One was almost identical to your pic.

MEMA Jo said...

I emailed Jason at beakspeak that the first chick had arrived at BW. Wondering if he'll post it. I told him that the list of nests with eggs was going to be too long to publish.

MEMA Jo said...

Paula as soon as our first egg hatches are you going to close the poll? If you don't, then I can jump in there and change my vote to be more accurate.... lol
I wouldn't do that - not Mema.

paula eaglet momster said...

Blackwater video from today

http://www.youtube.com/
watch?v=se7AxHhFQto

Mits said...

Oh, Sandra, so sorry about Tom, will be in my prayers.

Mits said...

Paula, you are a busy beaver...the videos are EGGcellent. Heading over to see the good DR. S now/

Mits said...

Jo, you went to Crackel Barrel...my favorite place to eat and shop:).

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Oh me, oh my!! What a busy little eagle day today!! I have seen some of the pics of the new little one. Also got the email about the season starting again for the peregrine falcons in PA. Hopefully things will settle down for me to enjoy all of this.

Mommy was still feeling pretty sick today. Please continue to keep her in your prayers!!

paula eaglet momster said...

I'll probably close the poll before the first hatching (I hope). I'll send out an email reminding everyone to hurry up and vote before I close it.

paula eaglet momster said...

Man, this fat free pudding is not as good as the real stuff,,,not chocolately enough!

MEMA Jo said...

BW video from today by Sharon Feeney was very good.

Dr Sharpe's video of the climb was fabulous!!! Did you see all that
poop shoot on the rocks? lol

MEMA Jo said...

Hi There Sharon. For sure your mom is in my prayers.

MEMA Jo said...

Over to emails - brb

Mits said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE

I am thankful it is rain and not more snow for Belle tonight.
You see those Eagle Spirits, Jim?

MEMA Jo said...

Time to call it a day
Good Night All
Pleasant dreams & peaceful sleep
Prayers for all being said
especially Sharon & her Mom &
Sandra's hubby Tom


Good Morning Suzanne:No new eggs or chicks since you've been gone

movin said...

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE...

Have an exciting weekend, keep the rest of us posted.

I just saw Belle get up, shake her wings out some, turn around and settle back down in a semi-tent position...the rain seems to be picking up.

Jim

Suzanne said...

Good Friday morning, eagle world. What a mess outside! Pouring buckets, and there is from no fog to I can't see a bloody thing fog. And lots of wind, so be careful. But thankfully, not freezing! I thought I heard last night it was supposed to be ver cold, but it was 49° at my house, down to 37° in the mts coming down, and it's 55° here at work. But very heavy rain!

See our BW mom is tenting. Can't see too much in our nest, but can see the white head and tail feathers and a black body, but that's about all. Wierd colors to grey for the eagle spirits. Saw where Lisa updated the eagle page, new pics of our first baby feeding, then the baby is looking at the cam. How cute is that!!! Read where Lisa had on the site the update for what to expect, and from that I'm guessing our first chick is a female. Think it said 63% first borns are female, 68% 2nd born are male, so we probably have a little princess among us! Now hopefully the prince will join the family soon!

All have a great eagle day! Stay dry if you can!

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

Checking my yahoo mail (didn't do it yesterday), and have an email from PA DEP FalconWire. The PA Falcon cam goes live Monday, 6 Mar 07. They said they have finally seen the pair exhibiting nesting behavior at the ledge, so they're turning the cam on again. I checked it one day last week and saw a bird by the large round pole, but at the time it was too dark to tell what it was. Now I'm guessing one of the nestors. So... more eggs and babies. Let's hope this year the babies fare a lot better than the babies from last year!

Suzanne said...

Lady BW, new mom is awake and looking around. She's still tenting a little, so maybe the rain is not so heavy there. Our parent has moved, but not really tenting. Anybody know, or have you already said, what in the world is that long white thing in the osprey nest? Or is that just a stick with the light on it? Guess I'll wait for daylight.

Suzanne said...

Ok, she knew I typed what I did, (man, she's good!), so now she's moved and is tenting! Uh oh, checking the chick and egg. She sure is much more relaxed this morning than she was yesterday! But yesterday about this time is when the chick hatched, I think. Big tenting now. Our cam went black, no pic.

Suzanne said...

Well that was Liberty, proud poppa in the nest. He's no longer tenting, just this refresh he stopped. I was also just outside, and the rain has also stopped. Can't believe the deluge I drove in to get here, and now the rain has totally stopped. So that's a good thing!

Glo, didn't see your video of the hatching of our little princess on yahoo, did you post it? If so, where can I see it?

Whoever is in our nest isn't moving much, and still not tenting, so rain has probably stopped in Shepherdstown too.

Suzanne said...

Well, dang, cam 3 in Kent stopped again. Last night, 3 mins after midnight. Other 2 cams appear to be working. Checked the falcon ledge, it's up, but of course it's still dark and you can't see anything but the Harrisburg city lights. Not sure if it's refreshing, either.

OH, Lord BW just tucked his head under his wing. Either that, or he's got a bite.

Suzanne said...

It was a bite, he's looking around again.

Suzanne said...

Getting daylight, and both our parents look wet. At least there is not rain now, so they'll dry out soon. Haven't seen our little princess all morning. 'Spect dad is keeping her very dry! And that white thing I was seeing on the osprey nest is a very straight stick. New addition since yesterday.

Suzanne said...

The falcon cam is updating, and it doesn't look as though they've cleaned the ledge yet.

OH Lady BW is flying in and you can see the little princess!

Suzanne said...

Well, no, she didn't fly in, Lord BW is still there showing us his little girl. Well...he was. But maybe he just flew at the cam or something, cause there was a lot of wings going on...

Suzanne said...

There she is, look quick!!!

Suzanne said...

Well, dang, pic is not updating, so you can see the little princess and her maybe little soon to be hatched prince. Doting dad looking on...

Suzanne said...

Well, viewing is over, Lord BW is back keeping everybody warm.

Suzanne said...

Osprey eagle, Belle turning eggs.

Suzanne said...

Just checked, one of the falcons is on the bar that hangs out from the building. Nice to see one there!

Still an osprey eagle, Lord BW turning eggs, fish in nest supervising, Belle finished and comfy.

Suzanne said...

Man, everybody is sleeping in this morning. Good morning for it! Falcon is still there, Belle hasn't moved much, nor has Lord BW. Course the fish that's supervising in their nest hasn't moved much either. Oh, Falcon moved up close to the cam. Beautiful!
