sandyshaw said...

Thanks again, Steve. I'm waiting for Tom to arrive home from the hospital and for his antibiotic equipment (coming from Columbia, MD) and nursing help (coming from Charles Town). Just poppped in for a minute and found the new thread. Very very windy.

paula eaglet momster said...

Sorry the live feed is gone again!

sandyshaw said...

Just watched the video of Buta and Lun in the hammock. So funny.

Mits said...

Hello, again...been watching VA all a.m. and CO. VA was really looking underneath herself alot and they moved the cam even closer to her.

MEMA Jo said...

REMEMBER: Dr Sarpe today around 4-5pm our time will be replacing the eggs at twnest! Watch if you can

CO cam is down for me.

MEMA Jo said...

CO cam is up for me now.

paula eaglet momster said...

Steve,
Do you have any idea when the live feed will be up on a consistent basis? A week, 2 weeks? A month? We would appreciate any info. Thanks.

normabyrd said...

SANDY---I watched BUTA & LUN LUN fighting over the hammock---When I quit watching---BUTA won!!---Have you folks in my thoughts & prayers----GOD BLESS--

normabyrd said...

MEMA JO---Thanks for the update---How could anyone not want to see DR. SHARPE!!!!

Mits said...

CO eagle is up and looking in the nest bowl, wish they refreshed more than 2 minutes, but at least, their CAM is clear!

MEMA Jo said...

Don't like to pop in and right back out, but I have an appointment.
I will return by 3pm.

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg turning, our nest

KateAZ said...

Both eagles working hard on the Hancock-Sidney nest. May not be much longer before we have an egg there.

Steven said...

We expect the live feed to be up soon, but have not heard back from Wheeling today.

normabyrd said...

I was viewing the HANCOCK site---Please check the pictures of EAGLES-----They are breath taking--Haven't seen photos like this!!!! This photographer is GOOD!!!

Floralgirl said...

Well, sorry the live feed went down. And I don't mean to be grumpy, BUT I haven't been able to see the 30 sec. cam for 6 days now, and no one seems to know why some people can't open any FWS sites. And it is starting to irritate me! I want my cam pic!!!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Megan, Dana and whomever else can't get in - Who is your ISP??

paula eaglet momster said...

Live Feed is up. Thank you NCTC.

MEMA Jo said...

I have returned home from appointment. Getting ready to settle in to see the Eagle Guy at thnest in about an hour. Looks like all is calm on the homefront with the exception of reception problems not resolved yet.

Nilla said...

Hi, I still can not get in from home to the blog or cam on here.. Right now i am at work and no problems... Paula i have Verizon DSL at home.... I think Dana has Comcast not sure... Good to see Belle setting there... Oh no snow for tomarrow!!!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good evening everybody. I am watching our live cam for a minute. My internet has gone down again and I am at my sister's checking on things. Hopefully, my internet will be back up in a little while. MTBR! Hi Nilla. Great to see you on here!!

Nilla said...

BELLE is up do we have a hatching???

Nilla said...

Been watching those eagles in SC nest.. BW just fed the babies... Hi Sharon ... Happy Birthday what 29 again????????????????

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Nilla, absolutely 29 again! :):):) I would love for one of our eaglets to hatch today. What a birthday present that would be!!

Nilla said...

Good Lord weather is calling for almost 6 inches of snow tomarrow here!!! anyone else watching Belle?

Nilla said...

Is that Lib standing there and Belle hidin behind him or is that the tiny head of a eaglet back there??????

Mits said...

Just got back home, watching 2 Harbors and Belle, standing there, Nilla.

Mits said...

Could be Lib???

Mits said...

Eagle just left nest at 2 Harbors/

Nilla said...

MEMA Jo said...

Little blue box just went back down the mountain. Now the trick is to see the eagles come back to the nest.

Nilla said...

SC is up and worring with that branch thats hangin out over the nest...

MEMA Jo said...

Hi Nilla - I was busy watching the happenings at thnest. Good to have you here.

Nilla said...

MEMA Jo said...

Mits said...

OK, I'm back sister and I were watching Dr' Sharpe, he wore the same pants last week at WE..I'll check the site in a sec Nilla...my live feeD is down AGAIN!!!!!!!!

Heidigirl said...

Shepherdtown eagles are clear and coming in fine from the west coast. This is my second year watching and I catch a peek every so often from work. I really enjoy your comments. Thanks everyone, you have taught me alot.

MEMA Jo said...

HELLO Heidigirl! Welcome to the blog. Talking about the west coast, we were all just watching the egg swap at the Channel Islands Two Harbor nest!

Mits said...

HELLO HEIDIGIRL:):):)

Mits said...

NILLA, THAT IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE! Still going the end of April????

Mits said...

Yes, Jo, I got my haircut, finally:):)!

MEMA Jo said...

I'm sure it feels great. So, where did Nilla go? She thought she saw a chick in our nest & so far I can't see anything. Until there is an egg roll - unless Nilla was lucky enough to get a pic - ??

MEMA Jo said...

Dinner time here... BBL

Mits said...

If a chick were hatched today, that would make the last egg to be hatched far behind, since it was laid on the 12th of FEB, I didn't see anything, but maybe Nilla, got a pic.

Mits said...

It feels great, Jo:):):).

Mits said...

BELLE JUST FLEW IN.

Mits said...

AND FLEW OUT AGAIN, IT HAS BEEN LIB IN THE NEST.

Mits said...

Must have forgotten something she took off so fast.

Nilla said...

My seeing ababy was prolley wishful thinking on my part as i havent seen nothing since but like Sharon says MTBR... Yes Thelma leaving April 27th thru May6th... I have a scooter reserved from a health store down there, they will deliver the day we get there and pick up when i leave... Does SC have a egg or from what i have seen she is making the egg bowl??

Mits said...

Yes, pretty sure SC has an egg:)>

Mits said...

How'd the DRS. appt. go yesterday?

Mits said...

I know the minute I leave this room there will be a switch at our nest, but I'm leaving anyhow.

Heidigirl said...

Thanks for making me feel welcome. How do I see the sights your talking about? I received Shephardtown link from a friend.

Nilla said...

Hi Heidi, You can go to www.beakspeak.com for the links to bird cams we watch... Belle is up off the eggs..... Back down now i saw the 3 eggs

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Hello Heidigirl!! Welcome to our blog! If you go to beakspeak.com you will find several eagle cams.

Mits said...

You can see the egg at SC now.

Mits said...

Lots of screeching at SC.

Nilla said...

Oh listen to SC eagle calling!!! wow she sure is vocal right now

Nilla said...

She wants her mate to come into the nest or maybe go get something to eat??? She sure is vocal!!!!!

Mits said...

2 EAGLES AT SC.

Nilla said...

LOL she wanted him to take over parental duties..... aint that something...

Mits said...

10 in and 26 out of nest at SC.

Mits said...

I hate it when our cam gets so cloudy at night.

Mits said...

EAGLE AT KENT NEST.

Nilla said...

I hope he is careful slinging those sticks around in the nest at SC...DOING THE EAGLE WADDLE TO GET COMFORTABLE...

Nilla said...

yuppers Oh she has settled in at Kent Thelma...

Heidigirl said...

What a beautiful gift you guys have given me. I found beakspeak and I would much rather watch that than hit my in basket.

Nilla said...

I can see Belle exceptionally well in the nest tonight... Only5 hours left for an egg to hatch on Sharons birthday so Belle get those eggs crackin...lol

Nilla said...

Kent Eagle i sup in the nest SC standing on edge of nest waitng for her .. Belle setting patiently looking under her once in awhile... wink Kent settled down now... He is still moving sticks at SC

Nilla said...

Ok belle i sup checking eggs i took picture!!!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Belle is catching a few winks ;)

Going to see if I got anything on the TH video :)

Think he took 2 eggs from the nest...lots of freezing on video... we'll know later for sure.

paula eaglet momster said...

Looks like they probably retreived 2 eggs from the TH nest...really a quick in and out...eagle returned very shortly afterwards. Video froze too much to process, but someone else got one. I'll post the link on here when it's ready.

paula eaglet momster said...

BW eagle is sleeping, too.

paula eaglet momster said...

Hey Megan, how ya doing?

paula eaglet momster said...

And hello Jo!

MEMA Jo said...

Today is day 23 for OUR 3rd egg.
Therefore, next week, the week of March 11th - we should be getting excited around here!!!! Right!!!

MEMA Jo said...

BLACWATER EAGLE CAM WEB LOG

has been updated

paula eaglet momster said...

I think we will see a hatching at the end of the week.

MEMA Jo said...

It is dark at KENT but I can make out the outline of the eagle up on the limb.

paula eaglet momster said...

Thanks, Jo. I only have the pop up cam up, I'll have to go do some reading!

MEMA Jo said...

That would be great! Weather wise, we should be having temps this weekend up in the 50's AFTER the 1-3 inches of snow tomorrow!

paula eaglet momster said...

Gonna be a long read. Lisa has eaglet videos :)

paula eaglet momster said...

Great! I haven't seen the weather report either. I hope it is nice on Saturday for the Eagle Festival at Blackwater.

paula eaglet momster said...

Megan, she has dial up versions of the videos.

paula eaglet momster said...

OMG, they are so precious! Little wobbly heads and all!

MEMA Jo said...

Lisa has an exceptional presentation and like you said, Paula

MEGAN she even thought of the dial up eagle lovers..........You are special!

paula eaglet momster said...

OUr eagle is still sleeping.

Floralgirl said...

Hello Jo and Paula1 Checking out the BW weblog, too. Saturday's weather forecast for BW is partly sunny, highs in the low 50's.

Floralgirl said...

Yes, That is so cool, I swear my connection is sooo slow, it's taking forever to open them, may have to try later. Trying to do too many things on here at once. Just watching the weather, 3-6" of snow! Yuck! who ordered that ??? Maybe this will be the last of the winter.

MEMA Jo said...

Took awhile to go through all the good videos on Lisa's web page. I can see it is much easier to sit on eggs then it is to sit on eaglets! How about that little pecker head!!!
I probably would not have picked that up if Lisa had not explained what we would be seeing. GREAT EVENING ENTERTAINMENT !!

Mits said...

HELLO, just talked to Sharon, she said to say GOOD NIGHT ALL, HER, INTERNET IS STILL NOT WORKING,:(.

MEMA Jo said...

I hope her day turned out real special. I just sent you an email, Mits - How about that snow forecast?

Paula, Megan and I have been over on Blackwater looking at Lisa's update.

MEMA Jo said...

Dr Sharpe's remark on the forum:
We removed two eggs from Two Harbors. I'll put photos, video (we recorded the camera feed and used the new camcorder) and more information in tomorrow's update.

paula eaglet momster said...

I for one, am pooped tonight. Signing out early. All have a good night!

paula eaglet momster said...

Howdy, Mits! And Good night all!

Mits said...

Got it Jo, we still have a long way til spring yet, haven't had a chance to go to BW, will do that tomorrow....Hello, Paula, Good night ,Paula. I was just saying to Sharon, I am totally overwhelmed by all the eagle-going-ons...can't keep up, my head is spinning. GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE

MEMA Jo said...

It has been quite a day at that!
I am sure we'll have things calm down while all this incubation is going on. Busy time will be trying to see all the chicks as they grow.

MEMA Jo said...

Time to call it a day.
Good Night all
Pleasant dreams & peaceful sleep
Prayers being said for all


Good Morning Suzanne
Hope the weather, if it is ok now, stays that way until you are safely back home.

movin said...

Good evening/Good night/Good morning, everyone (probably covers all the time zones)...

I watched the video of the Two Harbors exchange...as someone said, it was in and out. It was interesting though anyway.

I meant to have Paula or somebody ask Dr. Sharpe to straighted up those large sticks in front of the camera, which the eagles have been trying to fill that big gap, and which have been driving me mad because they look as though they would work if they were rearranged, but as it is they will likely slide out of the nest and down the rocks. But I forgot, and he just climbed over them both ways and didn't rearrange a thing!

I got the live feed this morning, but I guess they're shutting it off in the evening...never comes up this season. When it is up though, it is working great so far.

I looked at the S. Cruz nest from work briefly this afternoon and the male was on a limb over the nest preening, and the egg was on its own...fairly warm out here today.

Well, I too am kind of tired, and I still have chores to do. Later, everyone...

Jim

Floralgirl said...

Well, ok fine, I'll close down this place, everyone has snuck off to bed while I was watching BW videos. They are so cool! How great of Lisa to think of us dial up viewers! Good nite!!!!

Bird Girl said...

hellooooo everyone

well, I have returned from vacation -- although it wasn't the one we planned. basically, we ended up having to cancel our passage on the cruise because weather had shut down travel to the east side of the US (from Chicago south to Dallas, no planes could get East). so, we went to Hawaii instead!

can't talk much now, but i'll be putting together something for my (very much ignored) blog soon..

we have one egg in our nest, is that right??

your very own
Bird Girl

Floralgirl said...

Hmmm. no Suzanne this morning...maybe because It's snowing! Eagle in BW wide awake, can't comment on WV cam cause I still can't open it:(:(

wvgal_dana said...

Hi Megan I can't open the nctc eagle 30 second refresh cam either still :(

I done many checks and re-checks. Still nothing !!

wvgal_dana said...

Megan you have mail

Floralgirl said...

Hey Dana. Got your mail, the answer is no. I am using internet explorer 6. I am thinking of resetting my computer, taking it back to a day last week when I could open FWS sites. That is my last idea, I just don't get what the problem is, and no one seems to be aware of the problem or have any answers. Has to be an explanation for this.

Floralgirl said...

Feeding time at BW, both chicks are up and looking around. They look so fuzzy. Make sure to check out BW eagle cam upcates, some great videos of the chicks.

wvgal_dana said...

Going to look at the BW videos

wvgal_dana said...

Megan if you take it back to a day before it happened. Let me know please what the outcome is.

Floralgirl said...

Okie dokie, Dana, will do. It will be a little while though, not ready to get off the internet yet to try that. Still reading email and checking radar.

Floralgirl said...

Adult eagle at BW osprey cam.

wvgal_dana said...

Just watched NE eagle pulling feathers off her/his brood spot.

wvgal_dana said...

Awesome videos that are fabulous on the BW eagle site. If you haven't seen them. You are really missing something. Lisa again has out did herself.

wvgal_dana said...

I bet Belle or Liberty whomever is sitting on the eggs. Is snow covered. It is really coming down out there!!!

wvgal_dana said...

NE both eagles are in the nest. The one that flew in gave a touch to the top of the head softly to the one laying on the eggs. Now they just beaked awww.

wvgal_dana said...

Shift change at NE couldn't see the egg or eggs whichever.

wvgal_dana said...

Looks like I think Tai is enjoying the outside weather with snow coming down. As he enjoys eating something by the log.

Floralgirl said...

OK, would somebody please wake up and give a report on the NCTC nest?!!

wvgal_dana said...

I second the motion !

Floralgirl said...

Live feed is not up:(

CamsGrammy said...

floralgirl I was having problems earlier with different sites and I am using realplayer and they told me to brin up realplayer and go to tools then preference, then hardware, then performance playback to move the slied to the left- to the lowest cpu usage and then to restart my computer and I was able to get on all the sites then. Don't know if it will work for you but it is worth a try. Good luck.

Floralgirl said...

Good grief! It is really driving me nuts that I cannot open the cam page. BRB Dana. Going to try resetting computer. If that doesn't work I'm truly out of ideas....:(:(:(:(

Floralgirl said...

Well Hello, Camsgrammy! Thanks for the tip, checked it out. But our problem is odd in that we cannot open any USFWS site. We can view the NCTC live feed when it's up, cause it's not a FWS site, but we can't view the 30 sec. cam. It's like we are being blocked, or our computers aren't recognizing their server. Haven't changed anything on my computer to make it stop working, it just happened one day. Thought it was a FWS site problem, but so few of us are having this issue, I'm baffled. BRB

wvgal_dana said...

Morning camsgrammy

Megan you have mail

Floralgirl said...

Didn't work, Dana:(:(:(

wvgal_dana said...

BW eagle cam is stuck darn
Lisa will probably have it fixed soon.

wvgal_dana said...

Did not work for me either Megan. Sorry :( Did you see I have sent you email about http

Mits said...

MORNING, DANA, MEGAN AND CAMSGRANNY Snow at nest, doesn't look too bad so far, eagle is sleeping. MEGAN, YOU HAVE MAIL

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle in NE setting on 1 egg don't know if more

BW eagle back UP

VA down

CO setting on 1 egg don't know if more

Maine setting on 1 egg don't know if more

wvgal_dana said...

Morning Mits

Mits said...

Know this probably won't work, have you tried going thru BEAKSPEAK? Just a thought.

Mits said...

Live-feed still down. Have you called your IP providers, and, asked them why, maybe they can push a button from their place or something.....just grasping at any little thing that comes into my mind, since I don't have the technical know how.

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Mits for update on our nest.
Megan and me were both wondering what was going on at nest.

wvgal_dana said...

Tai is just sitting outside eating bamboo as the snow falls ( :

Floralgirl said...

Hi Mits! checking my mail. I've tried getting to FWS sites from every link. I just can't open ANY of them. For some reason, my browser is not finding their server. Something changed that is blocking me, just can't figure out what.I didn't change anything here!

Floralgirl said...

I need a computer geek!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Wished I was able to go March 10th to Blackwater. I feel so close to the eagles and osprey there.

wvgal_dana said...

Megan did you read my email about the http??????????????

CamsGrammy said...

When I was having the same problem I couldn't get on the florida site and a couple of others and our every once in a while but I called AOL and that is what they told me to do and it worked. I was ready to put the computer out the window. Very frustrating.

Floralgirl said...

Well my computer works fine unless I want to open a FWS site. I have no problems with any other cams or sites. Weird..hubby says I have been blocked..why would the fws ban a tree hugger like me? Dana, you have mail:)

movin said...

Haven't read blog, but want to tell you they are on and at the nest in Kent now...in the dark.

Jim

Floralgirl said...

I see there's a fresh fish in the BW eagle nest. Missed the delivery, though.

Sunny said...

Steve has started a new thread!

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...
