Is everything okay in BW nest? Looks like the adult is trying to bury the eaglets!

I know all you experts have more time to watch than I do, at work.

Good morning, and Hi to Steve!

Sunny said...

Hello Everyone! Don't you want to talk to me? I didn't mean to be rude. Come out, come out, whereever you are.

Serena said...

I was thinking the same thing. The eaglet on the right hasn't moved much. I'm getting worried.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning Sunny. I know when they were incubating the eggs, one would try to put grass on the other's back. Don't know why they do that but it was pretty cute.

Still watching Liberty and Belle and our precious three little eggs. Hoping for a hatchling soon!

Hope everybody has a good day. Feeling kind of under the weather myself. Have bronchitis and it does not feel too good!!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Okay, now you have me worrying and watching closely.

CamsGrammy said...

I can see 3 heads in VA I think this morning

Serena said...

Sorry. I didn't mean to make you worry. I haven't seen the eaglet lift it's head at all, unless it's just really tired.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Still no movement that I can see.

Serena said...

What will the parents do if it dies?

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Now we can't see anything at all.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I don't know what happens if one dies but I am praying it is just sleeping. More will be revealed.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

It looks like the one on the right was just peeking out from under the adult. ???

Sunny said...

I always worry when they're sleeping! They always just flop down at the most awkward positions and angles. Mama's probably just trying to keep them cozy.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

It looks okay now, don't ya think?

Sunny said...

Yay! All looks well!

Serena said...

Oh Thank God! Sorry I made everybody worry. I feel much better now.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Oh my, I forgot about the worrying aspect of this endeavor.

Sunny said...

Chubs moved!

Sunny said...

Serena, being an Eaglet Momster is very worrisome work! Just part of the job.

Jill said...

I was trying to sign in and missed it. Everybody is okay then right?

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steven. Thanks for the heads up, CamsGrammy. Morning, everyone.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Now I don't see #2 at all! Maybe under the parent?

Suzanne said...

Haven't read all of this blog, but started scanning. The chicks in BW are fine. They have had breakfast (2 fish and a duck), and numerous snacks. Think parent may be trying to cover them in grass and corn because they are getting too big to fit under the parents while sleeping now. When I first logged on this morning a little after 4, both were partially out from under the parent. Think they may be getting ready for the bad weather we're supposed to be getting. Both chicks did eat this morning, so hopefully, they will be fine.

Serena said...

Sunny, I suppose it is, as well as part of my worrysome nature about everything else in my life. LOL!

Sunny said...

well, that little stinker! He's hiding under the grass!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Okay, I am going to quit worrying now. They are fine. One was hid under the grass. I think last year we had Spunky dead a few times. Getting back on track now . . .

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Lib and Belle in our nest!

Sunny said...

Sure would like to see a Hatchling in OUR nest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Glad to hear that VA 3rd chick has finally escaped from that shell,,,,it was cracking yesterday afternoon,..

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE Have a good eagle, falcon, osprey, panda watching kind of day> Hello to all new-comers:)!

Sunny said...

And thanks, Suzanne for the early morning report. Can you tell I'm not getting much work done at work today. Last year the BW eaglets were past this stage when I discovered them. I don't know how you guys keep track of so many nests.

Mits said...

Star in KENT nest.

Jill said...

Remember too it is probably 5-10 degrees cooler at BW than here because of the water. And if the wind is blowing off the water it will be even cooler. Momma just trying to keep the little buggers warm. But she doesn't have to scare us. LOL

paula eaglet momster said...

LOL, did ya'll see the update on the osprey page? ;)

paula eaglet momster said...

OK, sharon, so did you see a switch? Looks like Belle on the nest to me

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Yes, Paula, I saw that update this morning at BW osprey. Definitely wasting no time! :):):)

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Maybe it will be Star's day to lay an egg!

Suzanne said...

Dang, Star's up, no egg. Practicing again!

Mits said...

Pratice makes perfect, Suz. Just checked Shenadoah falcon site,egg is gone!:(

paula eaglet momster said...

I wonder if our eggs will take longer to hatch this year than last because of the colder weather?

Suzanne said...

Mits, what do you mean, GONE???? It fell over the cliff??? What do they say?

Mits said...

I think that is possible, Suz, I sent you the quad pic, I don't see it unless Mom rolled it to the back of the ledge somewhere.

Mits said...

opsprey inspecting the nest again.

MEMA Jo said...

Good Morning Lots of Momster feelings on here this morning! Glad we have each other!
Welcome all you newbys It is great to have you on board to share in these awesome events.
Welcome back Sunny!

MEMA Jo said...

Traveling to Hagerstown for lunch.
Keep an eagle eye on our nest - Can't be much longer before our 1st chick
hatches.

paula eaglet momster said...

Feeding at VA

normabyrd said...

GOOD A.M. EAGLE BUDDIES!!!---SUNNY----Now you know---"IT'S LONELY AT THE TOP"---ho! ho!---HEY---(new members)---When you become a MOMSTER---You AGREE to WORRY--ho!---Last year---All we did was WORRY & WAIT---That's what makes the CREW so GREAT----But weather is to turn to (maybe snow) this evening!!--68° her now---

paula eaglet momster said...

Great view on that feeding, you can see the little 3rd head pop up every once in awhile

normabyrd said...

JO--You have mail--HELLO---Lots of MOMSTERS this a.m.---LIFE IS GOOD!!How was the "Little Prince" yesterday MITS?----SHARON---You take care today!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Long feeding in VA /Belle off the eggs

paula eaglet momster said...

I'm sure we have a hatching!!!1

Mits said...

Tai-Shan was just wonderful, Norma:).

Suzanne said...

Egg turning, our nest. The chicks have broken out of the grass blankets! Osprey still hanging around, there have been several there this morning, male and female. Guess the mates haven't been established yet, nor has this nest been spoken for yet.

Mits said...

Weird lines on our cam:(

paula eaglet momster said...

I'll put the pictures up...ya'll keep your eyes posted...

normabyrd said...

BUTA BUTA is asleep on the "Head Board"----CLICK on---If you read the Wed. UPDATE---You can hear LUN LUN BLEAT----COOL!---The little BEAUTY hasn't started to bleat---Didn't know PANDAS bleat!!!

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE---Those OSPREYS aren't "wasting any time" as LISA says----

Mits said...

Norma, they bleat, bark, growl, you can hear them on the National Zoo cam.

Mits said...

Paula, did you see a chick at our nest??

paula eaglet momster said...

Lines are gone now, whew....not gonna be the greatest weather for eaglets to hatch!

paula eaglet momster said...

PIctures are up.

paula eaglet momster said...

Too bad Steven isn't at NCTC today...he could log on and tell us what they see on the live feed.

paula eaglet momster said...

NO, in the process of hatching....look at the pictures, not like the ones from yesterday

Mits said...

They have LIVE-FEED at NCTC??? Geez maybe I will pack a lunch and go up there.

Mits said...

Yep, egg looks different than yesterday for sure.

Mits said...

Must be why our eagle is sitting high over the nest bowl.

normabyrd said...

MITS---I have heard the PANDAS bark & growl---Didn't know about the bleating----They are so interesting & ADORABLE!

Sunny said...

When I was at NCTC a couple of weeks ago, they did not have the live feed in the room where they had it last year. I was very disappointed. Maybe it's back now. I'll check it out next week.

Mits said...

Sunny, maybe it is a secret room:).

paula eaglet momster said...

Hmmm, they had the live feed earlier at the campus. Wonder what's up with that?

Mits said...

Sent an e-mail to NPS about missing egg at Shendadoah.

paula eaglet momster said...

Suz, do you have any pictures of the eggs from this morning? Anyone?

paula eaglet momster said...

Was there 2? I saw one yesterday, but that was first time I looked at it.

Egg checking our nest

paula eaglet momster said...

Belle's not gonna let us see this time

paula eaglet momster said...

egg check our nest again

paula eaglet momster said...

That was a quick check

Mits said...

Sherperdstown weather todays high..65°. tomorrows high 35°!

normabyrd said...

DO you all still have LIVE FEED?---I don't---

paula eaglet momster said...

Both BW cams frozen

Suzanne said...

Been on other computer, just read back blogs. Paula, there are still 3 eggs in the nest. I sent pics to Jo to post on Momsters from this morning. No hatchling yet. Belle was acting funny this morning, but then she got up and turned all 3 eggs. Jo will post pics later today, I'm sure.

paula eaglet momster said...

No, Norma. No live feed. We were talking as to whether NCTC had the live feed on in the building.

Suzanne said...

Dang, both BW cams are not updating!

paula eaglet momster said...

I do keep checking it faithfully should it all of a sudden come on!

normabyrd said...

I am in their weather area---Rain later in day ----may turn to SNOW & rain this evening---in 30's tonight----

paula eaglet momster said...

2 our nest

Suzanne said...

Both in our nest, 2 eggs showing, third egg is blocked by eagle butt.

Suzanne said...

All 3 eggs showing!

paula eaglet momster said...

Well now it doesn't look like an egg hatching at all!

Suzanne said...

Think this is now Liberty, there was a switch, and he is turning all 3 eggs.

Mits said...

I see 3 eggs at our nest, going to look at pics I took.

normabyrd said...

SORRY----WEATHER will turn to SNOW & freezing rain --TOMORROW---Will be in 30th this evening---If I had LIVE feed---I could keep my facts straight!! ho! ho!---

normabyrd said...

The CO EAGLE looks like she has been in a bad storm---

Jennifer said...

Is it just me.. or does it look like there's food in the lower right hand area of the nest??

I'm wondering if Mom and Dad aren't preparing for a hatching if it is.

Mits said...

Looks like food to me, Jennifer:).

Mits said...

There is a March 12th update from Lynda at FLA. site. She still is holding out some hope.

normabyrd said...

Just reviewed GLO'S pics of our nest this time last year---BEAUTIFUL---

paula eaglet momster said...

2 parents at VA

normabyrd said...

KENT--MT NEST & TREE

normabyrd said...

NE EAGLE turned EGGS--

Suzanne said...

Sure be glad when Lisa gets back!

Sure be glad when our cam stops messing up every other refresh!

Mits said...

Sure would be, Suzanne:). Congrats on your WAX:)

glo said...

Aw thanks Norma I am glad to know some take time to go back and look. No one knew I was even doing that at this time last year. I was saving it as a surprise for when I knew were were all gonna have to learn how to let go together :). First entry to the guest Book actually was in June...But in our hearts we all know when the first entry was.

Mits said...

Both eagles still at VA. look warm.

Suzanne said...

Finally gave us another view in PA. Now you can see the bar that hangs over the edge. Falcon on the bar.

BW, both still down.

Liberty still sitting on 3 eggs.

Mits said...

I like that the falcon cam in PA, has Real Player and Windows to view their nest.

normabyrd said...

ME EAGLE---Looks foggy & cold!---No color---

Mits said...

Sent a note to NCTC, to see if they can clear up the 30 second cam. I'll let you know if they respond:).

Mits said...

Temp in Norfolk is 76° for the eagles.

Suzanne said...

Time for me to hit the road. Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow. If we get the snow and ice they're calling for, not even gonna try it. PA is under a winter storm warning from sometime tomorrow until 6AM Sat. Dang, supposed to get my hair cut Sat. That probably won't happen. Oh well, they'res always another day!

All have a great eagle, falcon, osprey day. Hope the BW cams come back pretty soon. Sure be glad when Lisa gets back! Hope all the new babies stay warm and cozy during this next (hopefully LAST) storm that's coming.

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Mits said...

See you, Suzanne.

Mits said...

Cams still stuck at BW.

normabyrd said...

HEY!---What's TAI doing?----Looks like he might have been PRAYING & fell asleep!----

Mits said...

Norma, Tai is eating on Cam # 2, don't know who that is sleeping over the tree branch, on cam #1?

Mits said...

Mei and Tian are roaming around on Cam #1 now.

Mits said...

Both at our nest/

paula eaglet momster said...

2 our nest again

Sunny said...

Aw darn - 3 very distinct eggs in our nest!

paula eaglet momster said...

But I don't think she turned all of them

Sunny said...

BW eaglets have been passed out for two hours (ha! Ha!) They should be well rested by now. :-(

paula eaglet momster said...

Mits, I noticed that last night about the Falcon site in PA, the choice of WMP or Real player. I brought it up in RP last night...could hear birds and cars and everything...pretty neat.

paula eaglet momster said...

Hey Sunny, that worked! BW Eagle cam is updating now!

paula eaglet momster said...

VA chicks feeding but they need to adjust the cam

BW chicks are sleeping

Mits said...

Eagle on KENT branch.

paula eaglet momster said...

Thanks for the cam adjustment, VA can see the chicks much better now

paula eaglet momster said...

Awww, 2 oldest chicks peeking out from Mama in VA,,,looks really cute!

Mits said...

Got a glimse of all 3 chicks peeking out from under eagle at VA.

paula eaglet momster said...

Back in a couple of hours...

mauley said...

Be still my heart, do you remember when we thought our little Spunkster was dead. Can we handle all these emotions again? Come on hatchlings. I have tried for two hours to get in. Hope this makes it, and if not, Mits, Glo ???? donna

Sunny said...

On the other hand, with the weather we're supposed to be getting, maybe it's easier to protect an egg than an eaglet. We don't know when these eggs were laid, but I didn't think they were this far behind the BW eggs.

Mits said...

mmmm, EGG, turning at our nest.

Mits said...

Keep an eye on our nest????

Mits said...

Mauley, I usually just kick it know, works better than a noodle.

Mits said...

Looks like some storms headed towards Sheperdstown.

Mits said...

Move out of the way eagle.

mauley said...

It can be a pain when it wants to. It told me that I couldn't post because it was being checked for viruses, can you believe that??? Whose husband is it that say, What will be will be. I forget. Must be a senior moment. love mauley

Mits said...

Donna, its my hubby...."IT IS WHAT IT IS!":)

mauley said...

It is still trying to keep me out. It said that I couldn't post because it was scanning for viruses. Can you believe that. Whose husband is it that says, What will be will be. I can't remember It must be a senior moment. This blog is making me mad. Get it Mits. I will try one more time.

normabyrd said...

BW Eaglets seem to get bigger each time I look at them---VIRGINIA LADY'S nest is a MESS---Food everywhere---Adorable little heads peek out every now & then---I get frustrated when we can't see ours!

Mits said...

Hope Jo gets home before the storms hit.

mauley said...

It told me I couldn't post and then it let me. Go figure. I just need to see one of our eggs hatch. Must be causing me to be impatient. You must forgive me.n Yes, that's it Mits. It is what it is. I love it. Have even stolen it from your hubby to use. I mean er um borrowed it. donna

Mits said...

Mauley, be my guest. Whenever I get upset about something in life, he quotes that to me, and, I just know he is right and things are in a Higher Power looking over us:).

normabyrd said...

MT NESTS & TREE LIMBS--KENT---Every time I think they are going to start nesting----They both take off---

Mits said...

LOL, Norma, they are teasing us

normabyrd said...

ME EAGLE is now in living COLOR---

MEMA Jo said...

I'm home... Haven't read any comments except saw that I needed to get home before the storm hits. Had a little rain coming down the hgwy. So windy.
Nasty storm last night around midnight - the lightning was coming in all directions....
Guess there isn't a chick in WV yet.. I'll go read comments & check out some cams.
Mits did you tell Norma that Tai stared at you last night?

Mits said...

BOTH EAGLES OUR NEST

normabyrd said...

The ATLANTA crowd does nothing but sleep---Both of them---Wish we could see BUTA BUTA outside----She would go wild--ho!

normabyrd said...

MITS---I bet the "Little Prince" recognized you---COOL!!---What a long day it is without our EAGLES!!

Mits said...

NORMA, I was sitting there last night in the panda house after it was locked, in front of Tai's den, And he walked by the window 3 times and looked at me in the eyes, I think he thought I was a trainer with more treats, he is one beautiful panda bear, just like his Mom and Dad. Glad you are home Jo.

Mits said...

Still 3 eggs.

MEMA Jo said...

Both Lib & Belle in our nest & all 3 eggs in a row in sight!!!

Mits said...

Belle eating and Lib turning eggs.

MEMA Jo said...

Placing morning pic from Suz on the Momster site. BRB

Mits said...

Looks like Dark clouds over the nest, maybe that's why Bell came back, before the storm.

Mits said...

Hold onto your nest Belle and Lib, storm is almost there.

Sunny said...

It looks like Lisa might be back at BW. THere's an update, but it's not signed by her, so can't say for sure.

Mits said...

Poor Lib, she literally pushed him out of the nest.

Mits said...

Rain must be starting she is tenting.

Mits said...

30 mph winds with this storm.

MEMA Jo said...

Lisa should be gone until Saturday. I hope she didn't get her trip short..She certainly deserved a break
Does such fabulous work!!

MEMA Jo said...

What a TENT. Not raining yet here in the valley = Sunny,is it raining up there yet?
I went to Burhan Station for lunch and then we all went out to Penn.Ave to the Pennsylvania Dutch Market...
YUMMY YUMMY I got my ShoFly Pie!
Nilla always wanted to go there - I hope she has made it - I am certainly going back again and again!

MEMA Jo said...

I need to go check out emails.

Mits said...

Well, it opens up, vacation over catching up on photos, you think they called her back because of sticking cams?

MEMA Jo said...

Read your comment Mits. I guess she is back! Bet the return of the osprey helped make up her mind on a return date! Beautiful one on BW osprey now.

Jennifer said...

hrmm.. a little one is out from under whoever is on the nest in VA. I'm hoping that they are just asleep.

Sunny said...

It's raining pretty hard in Hagerstown. Started about 20-30 minutes ago. Poor Belle!

Sunny said...

Jo, Don't you just love the Pa Dutch Market? Yumm yumm....

Mits said...

On radar it looks like the heaviest of the rain has passed the nest:).

normabyrd said...

JENNIFER---I agree---VA LADY'S little "FUZZ BALLS" seem to pop out to eat every few minutes---I don't see how she gets any rest---Aren't they ADORABLE!!

MEMA Jo said...

Yes, Sunny! First time that I was there was today. I'll be back for sure.......... You still at your same job as last year?

Jennifer - would you tell us where you are located? (If you want - promise not come visit without calling first lol)

MEMA Jo said...

I found lots more pics waiting for me on my emails - Over to place more in the album on Momsters.


Mits - glad you found out about that falcon egg. I sure hope they lay more. Well Mits - better the egg then a baby falconett (as Sharon called them)

Mits said...

Temp here in Bethesda, MD has gone from 76° to 57° in the last hour, no rain yet, but getting breezy.

Mits said...

I see our time refreshing, but I'm not seeing Belle changing positions.

Mits said...

OK, now I finally see moment, took it down and then brought it back up

MEMA Jo said...

The male osprey is on the nest at BW

All white tummie

Mits said...

Love those osprey:).

Mits said...

BW chicks by themselves.

Mits said...

EAGLE AT KENT.

Jill said...

Where is the PA Dutch Market? What is it close too? I want to go there but nobody seems to be able to tell me how to get there. Hear the food is wonderful.

paula eaglet momster said...

Looks like Belle is tenting away. It is pouring here in Frederick. Sounds like there hasn't been much going on this afternoon?

paula eaglet momster said...

LOL, she really looks like a big, bloated eagle!

Sunny said...

Jill, the Market is in Long Meadow Shopping Center in the north end of Hagerstown. Are you familiar with H-town? I'm leaving work right now. I'll check back in later.

paula eaglet momster said...

There is an Amish Market that is now in the LOng Meadow Shopping Center in Hagerstown. I don't know if that's the one they are talking about or not.

paula eaglet momster said...

Could be the nasty weather that is forecast that made Lisa cut her vacation short. Hopefully, she'll just take the time off at home.

Mits said...

Eagle in Maine keeps calling out, think it needs a break.

MEMA Jo said...

Jill, Sunny and Paula are speaking of the Pennsylvania Dutch Market on Pennsylvania Ave in Hagerstown MD where I went today. The original Long Meadow Shopping Center is where it is located (at the far end)

http://www.padutchmarket.com/
indexh.html


There you go, Jill. Just googled
All you need to know and more!

MEMA Jo said...

Almost dinner time in this home.
BBL early evening...............

Jill said...

Got it. Just was confused when somebody said The Dutch Market was on PA Avenue or I misread. I sort of know where it is. Think I can find it. Thanks for the help

paula eaglet momster said...

You can see the oldest chick in VA pecking on the younger ones.

Mits said...

eagle all gone at KENT ..no egg

Mits said...

New update on Hampton Road eagle page, and a really cute picture, when I looked at the birds in the nest, I thought it was familiar, gulls:(

paula eaglet momster said...

Heading home, TTUL!

Mits said...

Belle is going to want a break soon.

Mits said...

Looks like Mom is throwing the dead seagull out of the nest at VA.

Mits said...

VA chicks by themselves.

Mits said...

Mom is preparing fish for dinner at VA.

Jennifer said...

I'm in NC.. so quite a ways from the nest. =)

Sunny said...

Hi Jill, one more clarification on the location of the PA Dutch Market. It's on North Potomac Street, not Pennsylvania Ave. They're both in the north end, and often confused.

Are you Scrapbook Jill? If so, I've probably met you!

Mits said...

Both eagles at VA, Dad is eating leftover gull

Jill said...

Thanks Sunny. I knew it was on the north end near Long Meadow but could never get good directions. Yes I am Scrapbook Jill.

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...
