GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDDIES---I think I may be first---Will give message to others---THANKS STEVEN & NCTC people---Understand your frustration---Hope you understand ours----YOU ARE STILL #1
Thanks for the new thread, Steven! Thanks for the heads up, Normabyrd.
Uh oh, we're not only getting the squiggly lines, but now they are turning colors! Oop, went away this refresh.
Fuzzy falcon on corner of ledge. Don't know what happened to that cam, but it sure is fuzzy this morning. Egg turning, our nest.
GOOD A.M. SUZANNE--MAULEY--PAULA & "back to bed"--DANA--ho!--PAULA--Will keep you & your son in my thoughts this a.m.----What hospital is he in?---TAKE CARE--
SUZANNE---You have some great pics on the BW Gallery----That older chick is not going to let the younger one eat----What to do? ho! ho!
osprey in osprey nest!!
Either he has one foot way up in the air, or he only has 1 foot. Nope, only has 1 leg, poor thing. Beautiful bird, though!
Hi Normabyrd. The parents are doing a pretty good job of feeding both of those chicks. They alternate bites from chick to chick. One chick this morning kinda reached over the other one to get an extra bite. Couldn't tell if he got it or not, but it made a cute pic. I send Lisa about a gazillion photos a day!
Osprey looking directly at the cam!
Missed the osprey---Please educate me SUZANNE----Last year at PA site--We could see the nest where the chicks hatched---All I ever see is the 1 falcon & all the "bloody meat", etc.----Are there eggs?
SUZANNE---Check the sizes of those chicks & tell me which is getting most of the food---ho! ho!---I read in one Lisa's columns that sometimes the older one will peck the younger on the head to keep him from getting any food!
Norma, osprey still in nest.They have several cams in PA, but last couple of days they've only had 2 on...one shows corner ledge, and the other the bar that hangs over. They seem to eat on that corner, it's getting messy with leftovers! Earlier they did show the nest box, but right now there are no eggs. The falcons seem to hang out in both places, so maybe that's why they're only showing those 2 views at the moment.I feel so sorry for that osprey! He sure is beautiful, though! He's still there.
DID you know the VIRGINIA LADY now has TWO CHICKS?---Watched her yesterday----When you go to that sight---on the right--check those falcon sights---SHENANDOAH, etc.--
LOL, Norma, I read that too. But I've watched the feedings, and first one chick gets a bite then the other one. Well, the one on the right looks bigger!
osprey glaring at fish crow!! Uh oh turned around to face him now.
Ho! Osprey glared fish crow down and he took off!
Check the Eagle page now!
Hi everyone..wishing you great eagle viewing everywhere
Oh, the fish crow is back in the osprey nest. Guess the crow doesn't want to give up his hangout!Look at the big chick trying to butt the little one out of the way!Oh osprey is getting serious now!
BW IS FEEDING CHICKS.JIM
Morning, Glo and Jim. Fish crow is still hanging around the osprey nest, and the osprey does not look happy! Chicks still eating!
I believe it is an osprey on the osprey nest in addition to the fish crow...Jim
GOOD A.M. GLO & JIM----Lots of EAGLES & FALCONS----Waiting to see the VIRGINA LADY feed---
Yup, Jim, that's an osprey. Poor thing only has 1 leg, but he sure is beautiful.
Both BW parents in nest.
Dawn is starting in Kent, cam 1.
Our eggs have been uncovered for a few minutes now... no parent in view.
EAGLE NEST ME is beautiful this morning!----Not much wind!!
I can't see our Nest----Not fully open---
Egg turning time, our nest. Chicks are still awake. Osprey still in nest, falcon gone from ledge. Dawn in Kent, looks like 2 eagles in tree, cam 1
Oh yeah, Suzanne..The lady Osprey (necklace) does only have one leg..I thought she was standing seductively until you said that.She looks as though she is trying to claim the platform, and she's definitely mature, so I guess one leg is enough...we'll see.Jim
Morning again Suzanne and Morning everyone.Norfolk Va Parent gets up slowly and UP POPS two cute heads. She is feeding them now.Poor Osprey it does seem to have one leg. Been there a long time.BW Eagle nest Chubs is on the right and Tiny on the left. Although Mom and Dad does see that they both eat. Chubs was born first. Tiny second.
BOTH in our nest!
Thanks, Jim. Wasn't sure if the osprey was a male or female.BW porker chicks are eating again!Both Lib and Belle still in the nest. Wonder if we're getting a chick, I never see both of them over 1 refresh anymore. Eagles still in tree in Kent.
Oh well, spoke too soon. Looks like Belle and the eggs now.
Falcon on bar, Harrisburg.
yep still 3 eggs in our nest Liberty left Belle taking over.
Chicks are full, taking a nap now. Both eagles still in branches in Kent.
Both just flew to nest in KentJim
Osprey gone might be back
HI DANA---Missed the VA chicks eating---Did the little one eat too!----They are hard to see--That is such a deep nest---
1 in nest at KENT---Other one left---Maybe they will have eggs soon!!
I could be wrong but it looks like a hole in the egg at Norfolk Va 10:10am
Yes Norma Tiny ate too. I always have that nest up. The parent see's BOTH EAT.
Uh oh, osprey gone. Hope she comes back and does claim the nest!
DANA---I watch that nest last evening when we first saw #2 chick-----Enlarged & it was a real joy to watch her feed the chick---
For Norfolk Va if you right click on the picture, go to zoom, it will make the picture "full screen". It is better to see the egg with. It looked like a small hole in top of egg. 10:10am
Eagle laying down in Kent, cam 2 and 3.
SUZANNE---I hope the osprey comes back too----Beautiful bird---What age--do you think---
Oh, our 1 legged female osprey is back. Belle looks all fluffy, it's beautiful out. Our BW chicks are still awake, but not eating. Eagle still in nest, Kent. Falcon on bar in Harrisburg. Man, not much left of that fish in the eagle nest!
YEP DANA!---She is BACK!---Check the little eaglets---all cuddly!! Ahhhhhhhh! Mom seems to be resting---
Star (female?) just got up and looked under her like she was looking for something. Nothing there, though.
Suzanne have you ask Lisa anything about the Osprey with one leg??
I sent her pics this morning, told her it was the first osprey I saw in the nest. Didn't ask her questions, though. She seems fine, and like Jim said, she's mature so hopefully it doesn't bother her.
Good Morning All All eagles present and accounted for!**On the VA screen, all I do is double click and it will come full screen - just like to NE one.Another double click will take it back down. Dana - thanks for Steve's message you placed on Momsters.
Norma, don't have a clue how old the osprey is. I'll have to read up on them.
Wow, love that cam 3 in Kent!
Morning, MemaJo! I sent you some pics this morning if you have time. If you don't, don't worry about it.
Eagle just flew into branch.
GOOD MORNING ALL, HAVE A GOOD EAGLE, FALCON, OSPREY WATCHING DAY
Looks like Lady Bw is moving grasses around the chicks. She's been off them a while, so they're getting sunshine and fresh air.
Morning, Mits! You watching all this action? We have our first osprey this morning!
Belle turning eggs. Falcon still on bar.
Morning Jo and Mits.I did ask some questions of Lisa so I will let you know what she says.Egg turning at our nest.
Still turning eggs, our nest. Falcon on corner ledge again. Shows his/her big feet!
Look at our poor osprey. One leg and no head at the moment.
YES, SUZANNE, love the osprey, thought I had read somewhere that the males come back 1st and then the females several weeks later, when I get time I'll go read Lisa's osprey facts, still plowing thru e-mails:):):).
Thanks, Mits. I said it was a female because someone thought it was with the necklace. I have no idea. Think I remember reading that too, but don't have time to go look. Nice to know they're back though.
Look at our chicks! Both have their mouth wide open. Dang, took me too long to type it.
MORNING JO & MITS----JO--That's how I was watching the VA LADY yesterday when we saw Chick #2---Most beautiful pic.---
Female Osprey do have necklace.
SUZANNE & MITS---JIM noticed the necklace this a.m. when he checked in---
SUZANNE----Those little BW chicks really like to eat!!---They are REALLY GROWING fast!!
Lunch time for our chicks!
LOL. Normabyrd, they sure do like to eat! And yes, I can't believe how fast they're growing! Fish crow back in osprey nest, osprey's not there now.
Wow, sun is glaring on cam 2 Kent. Eagle still in tree.
Adult male Ospreys arrive on their nesting territories a few days before the females. Found at this site: http://www.newyorkwild.org/osprey/osprey_info.htma female osprey will choose her mating partner based on the quality and location of the male's nestSo either the males are here an we haven't seen them Or it is a female passing through.
Awwwwwwww, chicks are chilling in the sun!
The male could also be the osprey that was around BW before their Eagle Fest, though I didn't see him on the nest. Doesn't mean he wasn't there, just didn't see one on the nest before this morning. Thanks, Dana!
Chicks are stretched out in the sun. Nothing but chicks and leftover fish. They are growing fast!
BIG fish in Norfolk Va nest. Keep a good eye out their for the "3rd chick" I believe today or tomorrow.
Looks like Belle is standing up letting the sun hit the eggs, but she's standing in the way... can't see the eggs.
DANA---I read some about the OSPREYS too---A lot like the EAGLES--But I read after the juvies leave nest, but are still hanging around---DAD will stay to care for them & Mom moves out!
Eagle calling out at VA.
Eggs are visible! Our nest.
Check our nest, does anyone see anything??
SHARON OR JO----BUTA BUTA is asleep on the high log---& LUN LUN is lying on the floor, stretched out, directly below her asleep---Do you suppose she wants to buffer her fall????
KENT 1 EAGLE--on tree---Nest--MT
Not sure, Mits! Just maybe. Need a clearer view of the eggs... It's just the motion of the adult was like a"feeding motion" MTBR
Norma - That very well could be! They said she did roll over in her sleep the other day and went Boom!
Man, I'm not going to get anything accomplised today, if I don't get away fro this puter:):).
I have an early afternoon appointment so I am asking that you Keep your eyes on OUR nest & keep good notes BBL

WISH she would TURN AROUND!!!
Me too, Norma.
Belle is looking around like she wants to go out for lunch.
That is one hungry eagle at KENT, been eating a long time.
Feeding time at VA.
Both eagles in nest at KENT.
Beware of the cam My cam wasn't refreshing - I hit F5 - black screen - closed it down - back up - still black screen!!!!
It just came back up I really need to see what is underour Belle............
Mine has been doing that for about 45 mins, Jo.
JO---Maybe a NCTC employee could run over & look under her wings--- ho!------ I think something is happening---she seems to be holding her wings differently----
1st born at VA is really stretching up for food now.
THANKS MITS---Isn't that AWESOME---That little fuzz ball reaching up for food-----
Yes, Norma it is a sight to see:).
Belle was just up turning eggs.
Wish the stupid black screen would stop!!!!!!
she's turning eggs again, but lines are interfering with pic.
Leaving for my appointment BBL
Both eaglets in view at VA.
oppps, one just ducked back down in the nest.
Belle turning eggs again, moving some of the nesting material out of the nest bowl.
MITS---Is that TAI in No.1---"Lying on the ground"---He is so COOL!!
Norma, when I just looked Tai was on cam 2, lying at one of his spots, nice and cool, temp here is 69°
Feeding time for the VA eaglets. Both clearly in view.
OOPPS! got there too late to see them, Jennifer.
Belle turning eggs again.
MITS--Sorry---I put the wrong cam #---Bet he is WARM---It's 72° here---Just took trash out----I can tell him from MEI--If I see his "behind"----He has a white rear! When do you go to ZOO-- tomorrow?
The CO site was blank this a.m.--Still blank---She looked exhausted when I saw her earlier---
Were there 3 eggs at the VA nest too? I'm starting to think that the 3rd hatched. One of the parents is feeding again, and I saw that both eaglets were off to the left with Mom or Dad paying attention to something right in front of them.
YES, Jennifer you are correct, there were 3 eggs at VA this year:). YES, Norma ZOO day tomorrow should be around 75°.
Must be warm at VA, her mouth is open, flies all over the fish.
Afternoon, all. Back home. Surgery went fine. Kid is home asleep.Was there a switch? That looks like Lib on the nest. And look at the tail on the right - extra white.
Eagle just left, 3 eggs in view
Back on the eggs.
Shift change at out nest> 3 eggs still intact.
Extra white is gone, must have been some feathers out of place
Nope, guess that's Lib!
There is an extra piece of white something in the nest w/ the 3 eggs. Gonna put the pic on Momsters.
HI PAULA---Glad things went well for your son!----I think it was feathers out of place---I though she appeared to have her feather spread most of the day----Would the warm weather have anything to do with it---
I want a zoom lens for next year!
Thank you, Norma.Yes, Norma, it might. Although I am glad neither of them has looked too warm.
There are other white pieces in the nest, too. One right to the left of her tail...could be bones.
VA LADY--Looked down & one little face--then two were looking directly at her---So she is feeding again---Going to catch up with the BW pair--ho!
1 in Nest---1 on side of tree --KENT
Glad everything is well with your son, PAULA:). I misssed Belle going out of the nest, but got a good pic of LIB coming in, sent it to JO.and yes, the pic I had of 3 eggs looked like something next to them, at first thought, thought it was part of a shell, but eggs still look intact last time I saw them.
CO pic still blank--
Osprey at Osprey nest
And there was a one legged osprey on the osprey cam this morning! Wow, wouldn't be hard to identify her!
A zoom lens would work or just a second camera on a different angle. I like the angle we have at the VA nest so maybe a side angle as well as top down.
That was a 2 legged female osprey
A side angle at Kent would be great...although you've got to protect it from the poop shoots! It would need to be strategically placed!
2 tuckered eaglets at BW...they are really starting to move around, aren't they?
Both eagles at KENT.
Egg roll, now facing 5pm
2 parents at BW
Wow, those little critters at BW are really moving around in the nest today. And they go from "passed out" to upright in a hurry when food arrives, don't they?
I have returned - went right to the 'working' cam and then read your comments. I really was hoping you had a chick while I was gone. Paula, very glad to hear that the knee surgery went well.
Late quick nap before dinner. BBL
LOL, Sunny you are correct about that:).
Belle looks very comfy in the nest.
Yes, Sunny they popped right back up, LOLJo, Glad it wasn't knee surgery! It was a hernia.BRB
lots of fish at BW.
JO, YOU HAVE MAIL.
i STILL SEE THE EGG AT va.
I am backLooking at comments. You mean no more Osprey's sighted at BW Osprey nest??No hatch of 3rd egg Norfolk??? Ok she was waiting for me to get back lolNo action out of Belle well my guess for 1st egg date isn't here yet. That is why she is waiting. And I am full of it lolMy "pink kitten does not have the fireplace anymore. She is for summer; smelling the flowers. ( :
They sure are watching that VA nest closely. The parents have been jumpy and when both chicks just fed, they zoomed in on them because the 3rd egg was partially visible behind the chicks. To me, itlooked like there might be a hole or crack in it.
Egg turning our nest
Shoot Belle was off the eggs still 3 showing. Sorry didn't get here in time to let you all know.
Dana, glad the fireplace is gone and the flower is back:). Yes, KATEAZ, they are really trying to zoom in on that final egg:).
I love watching Chubs and Tiny in BW they are so cute.
Hard to say, might be my imagination, but keep seeing a dark spot on one of our eggs....could be something, could be grass....I guess it's really too hard to tell w/ the pics so small....
Earlier in VA I seen small hole in top of the 3rd egg.Paula I know you are talking about one of our 3 eggs. Can't tell when enlarge pic.Bet everyone is wondering if Star is going to stay in the nest at Kent tonight.
Both parents in VA and still see the egg.
BBL, gotta go to grocery store
NEW UDATE ON TAI-SHAN
Mits, our little prince is growing right up, acting like a big boy now!! :):):)
Yes, Sharon he is growing up, too fast. How ya doing?:)
look at those chicks in VA.
I think I like the name SASSY for the 1st born at VA, because that's what that chick is.
Ok, so only 2 so far in VA?
Eagle at osprey nest.
BW chicks ready to chow down again
Mits could you hear the one at VA your calling "Sassy" sassing its Mother? lol
Dinner is over - cooked on the grill - tasted so good. Nothing new at OUR nest this afternoon. Can't be too far away!
Chubs got fed some at BW now Tiny is working his way for the food and parent is feeding him.
Anybody see the egg at VA
Just seen 3 eggs at our nest
No eagles in Kent now
lol...good one Dana:).
We may have an egg at the Hancock-SIdney nest. Mama was there for a long time and I just saw her act like she was rolling an egg and then doing the "Hornby wiggle" to settle back in. The next cup is so deep that even in the closeup I couldn't see into the cup.
Looks like Belle is going to have night duty, unless a switch occurs soon...egg turning
Can't see a darn thing!
KATEAZ, she has been in the nest the whole day, so that is a good sign.
Star is back at KENT, LAYING IN THE NEST.
