Thanks for the new Thread Steve.

Sandy said...

Hey Jo!!

MEMA Jo said...

Hey there Sandy! Still 2 eggs. We are hoping to see a crack in one of those eggs real soon.

Sunny said...

We have Rachel Carson to thank for having Eagles to watch!!!!

paula eaglet momster said...

Looked like that to me too, Sandy.

Sandy said...

Me too, me too!!

I can only sneek a peek at work though. I did see the switch...nothing new

Mema Jo, I got one of those we cannot grant your request thingys.
Sharon ((((Anndrew)))). Poor little guy. Also Sharon, my pets are part of my family. They know how I feel and I know how they feel, too. Thank you Rachel Carson, we sure don't want any silent springs. Thanks Steve, I wish I could read original manuscripts of Rachel's. I would be in heaven. donna

paula eaglet momster said...

Jo, that is the link you gave us earlier-The book club in celebration of her turning 100.

paula eaglet momster said...

OK, now, time for those eggs to get cracking. And I mean that with the best of intentions! We want chicklets!

paula eaglet momster said...

Rats. I did not mean to fuss and make the live feed go down. I'll shut up!

paula eaglet momster said...

There was a switch earlier, but I think that Belle came back to the nest...look how her tail hits the edge of the nest.

Sunny said...

family portrait at BW!

paula eaglet momster said...

LIVE FEED IS BACK ON.

paula eaglet momster said...

Belle looks really comfy

paula eaglet momster said...

Back off...

Wax on, Wax off, LOL. (My kids were Karate Kid fans!)

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Whoever did whatever to get our live feed going, could you do it again? PLEASE!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I have not watched Buta in days and days and she is exactly where I saw her last time I looked, on her logs!

MEMA Jo said...

It looks like Belle. Look how she is holding her left wing

MEMA Jo said...

Everytime I need a break from eagles and go to look at ButaButa - asleep on top of the logs!

paula eaglet momster said...

3 hungry chicklets up in VA again.

paula eaglet momster said...

Boy that littlest in VA says "I will not be unnoticed!"

paula eaglet momster said...

Checking eggs but I can't see anything

Carol said...

Yes, Paula, that littlest one at VA really stretches to get her share. Kinda reminds me of someone else we knew who had a lot of spunk!

paula eaglet momster said...

Yup, I am rooting for "the littlest eaglet"

paula eaglet momster said...

The BW's are eating again, they really look soft and fluffy.

paula eaglet momster said...

The snow is all melted.

paula eaglet momster said...

2 our nest, then Belle just left

paula eaglet momster said...

The nest cup looked soft and fluffy. Two eggs, looked pretty whole.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

This is the first time I have seen the eggs at the NU/NE nest!

paula eaglet momster said...

Big fish in the VA nest for the next go around.

How is the snow looking at the NE nest, Sharon?

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Star is looking pretty comfy in her nest.

paula eaglet momster said...

Wonder if she will fianlly lay an egg,,,,speaking of eggs, turning our nest

paula eaglet momster said...

Or checking, I guess.

paula eaglet momster said...

BW updated their eaglecam gallery

Mits said...

Too bad the cam gets cloudy at night, it has been so clear.

paula eaglet momster said...

Hey, Mits, How ya doing?

paula eaglet momster said...

Guess someone forgot to wipe the sucker off last fall.

MEMA Jo said...

Didn't mean to disappear for such a length of time. But darn, I was hoping I had missed something special.

MEMA Jo said...

We need to get the good Dr Sharpe here - He is really good at cleaning camera lens.

paula eaglet momster said...

I am going to disappear for awhile,,,gonna go walk the doggies.

Jennifer said...

It's probably cloudy due to condensation on the lens. It was rather warm today and I'm guessing that the inside of the cam is warmer than the outside.

MEMA Jo said...

We usually say it's the Eagle Spirits surrounding our nest and keeping them safe.

Mits said...

This is a good as it gets at night, Jennifer, than spidey will come when the weather is warmer and you can't see anything......Hi, Paula, good job on reporting today:).

MEMA Jo said...

Jennifer - did you comment about
homework the other day?

MEMA Jo said...

Kent eagles out and about
ME nest has windy conditions

Anyone know which of our eagles is
on the nest now?

paula eaglet momster said...

Liberty was the last one in, Jo.

paula eaglet momster said...

Up and turning eggs.

paula eaglet momster said...

Back down, facing noon

paula eaglet momster said...

Just turned again, facing 2 - I saw the gleaming eagle eye!

mauley said...

Good night all, (((Andrew))) hope you are much much better. Sharon, hang in there. You have your little hands full with Mommy, Andrew, and everything else. Don't go telling your oldest sister's age (me) on this old blog, like you did Beverly, just because I am the oldest. LOL I am praying for those in need and for our little eggs. Lord, please take care of them. It was a heartbreak to lose the first one. God Bless You all and good night. donna

MEMA Jo said...

Good Night Donna

MEMA Jo said...

This seems to be the first time that I can remember that Liberty had night duty.

Mits said...

Good Night, Donna.

Mits said...

I was thinking the same thing, Jo, wonder how they decide?

Mits said...

Going to watch Boston Legal...GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE

MEMA Jo said...

The BW Babies are lying beside their mother...

MEMA Jo said...

I bet tomorrow will be a hatching day I think I have said that every day now for a week! But I will be gone tomorrow from my pc from 11am till about 3pm so you know it will happen

Jennifer said...

LOL nah the comment about homework was earlier today. The joys of college :)

MEMA Jo said...

I can't remember that far back anymore lol Granddaughter is student at Shippensburg and so I know what you are saying about college homework. Good luck in getting it finished within the time line!

MEMA Jo said...

Looks like egg checking time in our nest

MEMA Jo said...

I am going to call it a day..

Good Night Everyone
Pleasant dreams and peaceful sleep
Prayers being said for all


Nite Jennifer and any other momster on the blog!

Good Morning Suzanne
Happy Spring

paula eaglet momster said...

Long egg turning. Now facing 5pm

paula eaglet momster said...

Signing off for tonight, sleep well all. Hope tomorrow brings eaglets!

Suzanne said...

Good morning, eagle world. Happy Spring to everyone. Doesn't feel like spring this morning, 33° at my house, 38° here. But at least I didn't have to scrape ice, so that's a blessing.

Think that is Lord BW on the chicks, (well half of their bodies, anyway), just woke up a sec ago, looked around, and head back under wing. I can't tell who is in our nest, think it's Belle, but hard to see through the blinds. I am believing that the cam is still working!! I'll find out in a refresh or two...

All have a great eagle day. Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

Well, what to say??? Lord BW is half awake and half asleep, he keeps waking up and looking around, then head goes immediately back under wing. Chicks are rearranging themselves under him. Now....our parent is either very very dedicated and has not moved over those eggs one bit, or the cam isn't updating. Our parent hasn't moved for almost 2 hours that I've had the cam up. Guess we'll wait until daylight to see if anything actually does move other than the "blinds."

Suzanne said...

OH, our parent has changed positions! Cam is working! Phew...

Suzanne said...

Wow, Lord BW and our parent are in exactly the same position. That looks neat!

Suzanne said...

It's gotten daylight since the last time I looked! BW tending chicks, our parent on eggs, osprey visiting, PA falcon on bar in front of nest, all fluffy. Wind is blowing and it's getting cold out.

Suzanne said...

Looks like egg turning in our nest, but I can't see the eggs. Parent is standing in front of nest bed, can't see anything. No white for eggs, no grey for babies. Very expertly blocking the cam view!

Suzanne said...

2nd osprey just arrived. BW chicks totally covered up. Oh, there are the eggs, she moved her head! Phew... Looks like 2 eggs, I'll send pic around.

Suzanne said...

Well, dang, wasn't eggs. Just head feathers blowing in the wind. Parent back on them. Can't see a thing in the nest.

Suzanne said...

Awwwwww, Lord BW just walked away, chicks are alone. Guess they're waiting for breakfast, it's late today. They're getting their pin or blood feathers, they look "pricky" if ya know what I mean...

glo said...

Good Morning all. starting the day with live feed. Hoping that means more good news and surprises ahead.

Wishing you all a good morning, off to Staff Meeting for me.

glo said...

OK well surprise its back down. Keep an eye on it though and yes maybe its better to not say...just be a checking frequently. shrugs...OK well have a Great Day..

Sunny said...

Happy first day of Spring, Eagle Buddies. I'm off to the dentist this morning, but I'll check in the first opportunity I get. Keep taking great notes.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I think our cam may be stuck in a loop of the same pictures. ARGH!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Looks to be working again. Yeah and thanks! Up and moving a little bit. Back down again. Didn't get a visual.

Suzanne said...

Suzanne said...

Dang, our cam is not updating again. Was doing that this morning for a while, then started working again. But not now. Sigh.............

Suzanne said...

Cam is back, turning 2 eggs, can see clearly.

Jennifer said...

Live Feed is up.

Good morning everyone.

Suzanne said...

Posted a pic on Momsters, can see the 2 eggs clearly. Looks like Belle is covering the eggs with grasses. Leftover fish all over eagle nest for snacks later. 2 ospreys in nest just hanging out. Getting dawn in Kent, but no eagle in tree this morning. One falcon on edge of bar.

Suzanne said...

Well, guess what? We're not updating the pic again.

Suzanne said...

Jennifer, is the live feed still up?

CamsGrammy said...

New thread

Jennifer said...

Yep Live Feed is still up. But it does look like the cam is stuck.

Suzanne said...

Dawn is coming in Kent, Spirit IS in tree, so maybe Star is in the nests. OK, our cam is operational again.
