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

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steven! Thanks for the heads up, Normabyrd.

Suzanne said...

Uh oh, we're not only getting the squiggly lines, but now they are turning colors! Oop, went away this refresh.

Suzanne said...

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.

normabyrd said...

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--

normabyrd said...

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!

Suzanne said...

osprey in osprey nest!!

Suzanne said...

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!

Suzanne said...

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!

Suzanne said...

Osprey looking directly at the cam!

normabyrd said...

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?

normabyrd said...

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!

Suzanne said...

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.

normabyrd said...

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.--

Suzanne said...

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!

Suzanne said...

osprey glaring at fish crow!! Uh oh turned around to face him now.

Suzanne said...

Ho! Osprey glared fish crow down and he took off!

normabyrd said...

Check the Eagle page now!

glo said...

Hi everyone..wishing you great eagle viewing everywhere

Suzanne said...

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!

movin said...

BW IS FEEDING CHICKS.
JIM

Suzanne said...

Morning, Glo and Jim. Fish crow is still hanging around the osprey nest, and the osprey does not look happy! Chicks still eating!

movin said...

I believe it is an osprey on the osprey nest in addition to the fish crow...

Jim

normabyrd said...

GOOD A.M. GLO & JIM----Lots of EAGLES & FALCONS----Waiting to see the VIRGINA LADY feed---

Suzanne said...

Yup, Jim, that's an osprey. Poor thing only has 1 leg, but he sure is beautiful.

Suzanne said...

Both BW parents in nest.

Suzanne said...

Dawn is starting in Kent, cam 1.

KateAZ said...

Our eggs have been uncovered for a few minutes now... no parent in view.

normabyrd said...

EAGLE NEST ME is beautiful this morning!----Not much wind!!

normabyrd said...

I can't see our Nest----Not fully open---

Suzanne said...

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

movin said...

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

wvgal_dana said...

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.

Suzanne said...

BOTH in our nest!

Suzanne said...

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.

Suzanne said...

Oh well, spoke too soon. Looks like Belle and the eggs now.

Suzanne said...

Falcon on bar, Harrisburg.

wvgal_dana said...

yep still 3 eggs in our nest Liberty left Belle taking over.

Suzanne said...

Chicks are full, taking a nap now. Both eagles still in branches in Kent.

movin said...

Both just flew to nest in Kent
Jim

wvgal_dana said...

Osprey gone might be back

normabyrd said...

HI DANA---Missed the VA chicks eating---Did the little one eat too!----They are hard to see--That is such a deep nest---

normabyrd said...

1 in nest at KENT---Other one left---Maybe they will have eggs soon!!

wvgal_dana said...

I could be wrong but it looks like a hole in the egg at Norfolk Va 10:10am

wvgal_dana said...

Yes Norma Tiny ate too. I always have that nest up. The parent see's BOTH EAT.

Suzanne said...

Uh oh, osprey gone. Hope she comes back and does claim the nest!

normabyrd said...

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---

wvgal_dana said...

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

Suzanne said...

Eagle laying down in Kent, cam 2 and 3.

wvgal_dana said...

Osprey back

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE---I hope the osprey comes back too----Beautiful bird---What age--do you think---

Suzanne said...

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!

normabyrd said...

YEP DANA!---She is BACK!---Check the little eaglets---all cuddly!! Ahhhhhhhh! Mom seems to be resting---

Suzanne said...

Star (female?) just got up and looked under her like she was looking for something. Nothing there, though.

wvgal_dana said...

Suzanne have you ask Lisa anything about the Osprey with one leg??

Suzanne said...

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.

MEMA Jo said...

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.

Suzanne said...

Norma, don't have a clue how old the osprey is. I'll have to read up on them.

Suzanne said...

Wow, love that cam 3 in Kent!

Suzanne said...

Morning, MemaJo! I sent you some pics this morning if you have time. If you don't, don't worry about it.

Suzanne said...

Eagle just flew into branch.

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING ALL, HAVE A GOOD EAGLE, FALCON, OSPREY WATCHING DAY

Suzanne said...

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.

Suzanne said...

Morning, Mits! You watching all this action? We have our first osprey this morning!

Suzanne said...

Belle turning eggs. Falcon still on bar.

wvgal_dana said...

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.

Suzanne said...

Still turning eggs, our nest. Falcon on corner ledge again. Shows his/her big feet!

Suzanne said...

Look at our poor osprey. One leg and no head at the moment.

Mits said...

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:):):).

Suzanne said...

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.

Suzanne said...

Look at our chicks! Both have their mouth wide open. Dang, took me too long to type it.

normabyrd said...

MORNING JO & MITS----JO--That's how I was watching the VA LADY yesterday when we saw Chick #2---Most beautiful pic.---

wvgal_dana said...

Female Osprey do have necklace.

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE & MITS---JIM noticed the necklace this a.m. when he checked in---

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE----Those little BW chicks really like to eat!!---They are REALLY GROWING fast!!

Suzanne said...

Lunch time for our chicks!

Suzanne said...

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.

Suzanne said...

Wow, sun is glaring on cam 2 Kent. Eagle still in tree.

wvgal_dana said...

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.htm

a female osprey will choose her mating partner based on the quality and location of the male's nest

So either the males are here an we haven't seen them Or it is a female passing through.

Suzanne said...

Awwwwwwww, chicks are chilling in the sun!

Suzanne said...

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!

Suzanne said...

Chicks are stretched out in the sun. Nothing but chicks and leftover fish. They are growing fast!

normabyrd said...

BLACK BIRDS--BW

wvgal_dana said...

BIG fish in Norfolk Va nest.
Keep a good eye out their for the "3rd chick" I believe today or tomorrow.

Suzanne said...

Looks like Belle is standing up letting the sun hit the eggs, but she's standing in the way... can't see the eggs.

normabyrd said...

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!

Mits said...

Eagle calling out at VA.

Suzanne said...

Eggs are visible! Our nest.

Mits said...

Check our nest, does anyone see anything??

normabyrd said...

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????

normabyrd said...

KENT 1 EAGLE--on tree---Nest--MT

MEMA Jo said...

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

MEMA Jo said...

Norma - That very well could be! They said she did roll over in her sleep the other day and went Boom!

Mits said...

Man, I'm not going to get anything accomplised today, if I don't get away fro this puter:):).

MEMA Jo said...

I have an early afternoon appointment so I am asking that you
Keep your eyes on OUR nest

& keep good notes
BBL

Mits said...

WILL DO, JO

Mits said...

Belle has got the itchys...

Suzanne said...

Both in nest, Kent.

Suzanne said...

She sure does, Mits. What in the world is she doing? Dang, have to leave today, bet she has a hatchling this afternoon! Take pics for me. Kent, one in tree, one in nest.

Mits said...

lOOK AT THE BEAUTIFUL SUN, AT KENT SHING ON EAGLE.

Suzanne said...

Time for me to hit the road. Take lots of pics and lots of notes! All have a great eagle and osprey watching day. Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Mits said...

Mits said...

our cam not refreshing for me....

Mits said...

ok now, didn't refresh for like 3 mins, it did that alot yesterday, than went down completely.

normabyrd said...

HI MITS---I have a feeling that TODAY WILL BE THE DAY!!!----Can't see what she is doing---Kinda like the VA LADY was acting---I will check in & out---Some things I HAVE to do too!----

normabyrd said...

WISH she would TURN AROUND!!!

Mits said...

Me too, Norma.

Mits said...

Belle is looking around like she wants to go out for lunch.

Mits said...

That is one hungry eagle at KENT, been eating a long time.

Mits said...

Feeding time at VA.

Mits said...

Both eagles in nest at KENT.

MEMA Jo said...

Beware of the cam
My cam wasn't refreshing - I hit F5 - black screen - closed it down - back up - still black screen!!!!

MEMA Jo said...

It just came back up

I really need to see what is under
our Belle............

Mits said...

Mine has been doing that for about 45 mins, Jo.

normabyrd said...

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----

Mits said...

1st born at VA is really stretching up for food now.

normabyrd said...

THANKS MITS---Isn't that AWESOME---That little fuzz ball reaching up for food-----

Mits said...

Yes, Norma it is a sight to see:).

Mits said...

Belle was just up turning eggs.

Mits said...

Wish the stupid black screen would stop!!!!!!

Mits said...

she's turning eggs again, but lines are interfering with pic.

MEMA Jo said...

Leaving for my appointment
BBL

Mits said...

Both eaglets in view at VA.

Mits said...

oppps, one just ducked back down in the nest.

Mits said...

Belle turning eggs again, moving some of the nesting material out of the nest bowl.

normabyrd said...

MITS---Is that TAI in No.1---"Lying on the ground"---He is so COOL!!

Mits said...

Norma, when I just looked Tai was on cam 2, lying at one of his spots, nice and cool, temp here is 69°

Jennifer said...

Feeding time for the VA eaglets. Both clearly in view.

Mits said...

OOPPS! got there too late to see them, Jennifer.

Mits said...

Belle turning eggs again.

normabyrd said...

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?

normabyrd said...

The CO site was blank this a.m.--Still blank---She looked exhausted when I saw her earlier---

Jennifer said...

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.

Mits said...

YES, Jennifer you are correct, there were 3 eggs at VA this year:). YES, Norma ZOO day tomorrow should be around 75°.

Mits said...

Must be warm at VA, her mouth is open, flies all over the fish.

paula eaglet momster said...

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.

paula eaglet momster said...

Eagle just left, 3 eggs in view

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg roll

paula eaglet momster said...

Back on the eggs.

Mits said...

Shift change at out nest> 3 eggs still intact.

paula eaglet momster said...

Extra white is gone, must have been some feathers out of place

paula eaglet momster said...

Nope, guess that's Lib!

paula eaglet momster said...

There is an extra piece of white something in the nest w/ the 3 eggs. Gonna put the pic on Momsters.

normabyrd said...

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---

paula eaglet momster said...

I want a zoom lens for next year!

paula eaglet momster said...

Thank you, Norma.

Yes, Norma, it might. Although I am glad neither of them has looked too warm.

paula eaglet momster said...

There are other white pieces in the nest, too. One right to the left of her tail...could be bones.

normabyrd said...

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!

normabyrd said...

1 in Nest---1 on side of tree --KENT

Mits said...

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.

normabyrd said...

CO pic still blank--

paula eaglet momster said...

Osprey at Osprey nest

paula eaglet momster said...

And there was a one legged osprey on the osprey cam this morning! Wow, wouldn't be hard to identify her!

Jennifer said...

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.

paula eaglet momster said...

That was a 2 legged female osprey

paula eaglet momster said...

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!

paula eaglet momster said...

2 tuckered eaglets at BW...they are really starting to move around, aren't they?

Mits said...

Both eagles at KENT.

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg roll, now facing 5pm

paula eaglet momster said...

2 parents at BW

Sunny said...

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?

MEMA Jo said...

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.

MEMA Jo said...

Late quick nap before dinner. BBL

Mits said...

LOL, Sunny you are correct about that:).

paula eaglet momster said...

Belle looks very comfy in the nest.

paula eaglet momster said...

Yes, Sunny they popped right back up, LOL

Jo, Glad it wasn't knee surgery! It was a hernia.
BRB

Mits said...

lots of fish at BW.

Mits said...

JO, YOU HAVE MAIL.

Mits said...

i STILL SEE THE EGG AT va.

wvgal_dana said...

I am back

Looking 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 lol

No 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 lol

My "pink kitten does not have the fireplace anymore. She is for summer; smelling the flowers. ( :

KateAZ said...

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.

paula eaglet momster said...

Egg turning our nest

wvgal_dana said...

Shoot Belle was off the eggs still 3 showing. Sorry didn't get here in time to let you all know.

Mits said...

Dana, glad the fireplace is gone and the flower is back:). Yes, KATEAZ, they are really trying to zoom in on that final egg:).

wvgal_dana said...

I love watching Chubs and Tiny in BW they are so cute.

paula eaglet momster said...

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....

wvgal_dana said...

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.

wvgal_dana said...

Both parents in VA and still see the egg.

paula eaglet momster said...

BBL, gotta go to grocery store

Mits said...

NEW UDATE ON TAI-SHAN

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Mits, our little prince is growing right up, acting like a big boy now!! :):):)

Mits said...

Yes, Sharon he is growing up, too fast. How ya doing?:)

Mits said...

look at those chicks in VA.

Mits said...

I think I like the name SASSY for the 1st born at VA, because that's what that chick is.

paula eaglet momster said...

Ok, so only 2 so far in VA?

Mits said...

so far....

Mits said...

Eagle at osprey nest.

wvgal_dana said...

BW chicks ready to chow down again

wvgal_dana said...

Mits could you hear the one at VA your calling "Sassy" sassing its Mother? lol

MEMA Jo said...

Dinner is over - cooked on the grill - tasted so good. Nothing new at OUR nest this afternoon. Can't be too far away!

wvgal_dana said...

Chubs got fed some at BW now Tiny is working his way for the food and parent is feeding him.

wvgal_dana said...

Anybody see the egg at VA

wvgal_dana said...

Just seen 3 eggs at our nest

wvgal_dana said...

No eagles in Kent now

Mits said...

lol...good one Dana:).

KateAZ said...

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.

paula eaglet momster said...

Looks like Belle is going to have night duty, unless a switch occurs soon...egg turning

paula eaglet momster said...

Can't see a darn thing!

Mits said...

KATEAZ, she has been in the nest the whole day, so that is a good sign.

Mits said...

Star is back at KENT, LAYING IN THE NEST.
