Good Morning, Eagle Lovers!
THANK YOU SUNNY for the heads up!!! Thanks for the new thread, Steven.
It sure is Snowy!
EGG turning at our nest.
Snow doesn't look too bad on the nest
GOOD MORNING, EAGLE LOVERS!!My live feed is not up, and the West End cam is not working.Just got a good shot of all 3 eggs here when Belle stood up, but it refreshed too soon to save it.Have a great day...get all the tech stuff straightened out (Haha), and I'll talk to you this evening.Jim
GOOD A.M. EAGLE BUDDIES---Thanks SUNNY for giving us the WORD!---We, here in the Eastern Panhandle" of WV, have NO SCHOOL---still SNOWING---& VERY COLD!!---But it looks like a "Picture Postcard"---BEAUTIFUL!!
VA is back on.
LISA is GOOD!---Have you folks seen her videos!!!----I thought of you SHARON & your "bald" cardinal-- when I read Lisa's story about the older EAGLET---during the feeding---kept pecking the head of the younger EAGLET so often---to let he/she know his/her place in the family---that he/she almost went BALD---
EAGLE at osprey nest.
MORNING----SUNNY--MITS--PAULA & JIM----Hope every one will be able to get on to the blog SOON!----I know that has to be DEVASTING!!!!
I don't have LIVE feed----Haven't see OUR EAGLES for a while!!!!---THANKS MITS for letting me know what is happening in the NEST!!
Feeding at BW. Chicks look huge!
Two eggs in CO. Check the picture from 6:50 this morning; it clearly shows two eggs.
One chick in Norfolk. She popped up to turn and there it was!
THANKS KATEAZ!----WOW!---You are RIGHT---I see TWO EGGS!!!---This is one of my favorite nests----
Thanks, KATEAZ, I missed that completely when I checked this a.m.:). I' also missed the Norfolk chick, have had both up this a.m., just didn't look at the right time:).
IS KENT the only nest without an egg?----I checked FL---can't tell what's happening there---MT this a.m.---MITS---Am I correct?
Our cam is stuck.
The Saanich (Hancock-Sidney) site doesn't have eggs either. Haven't seen the eagles this morning but they were working on the nest yesterday.
Yes, Norma you are correct.Don't know what is going on in FLA. Had an e-mail from Lynda the other day, but it was about an article I sent to her, and I forgot to ask, if I remember I'll e-mail her later.
Got so excited seeing the two at our nest pushed the wrong button to take pic.:(
I forgot about that one KATEAZ...I got 2 pics of the switch at our nest, just didn't get the one I wanted, was too busy just watching them and the eggs.:).
Good morning. I am back online. I have a new email address:email@example.comThis seems to run faster than the comcast one so that is a good thing. Now, if I can just get more memory and a flat screen monitor, I am going to be set!!
Sharon, you have mail......pls, let me know if it comes thru...eagle just up at VA, but I still haven't seen the chick.
HI SHARON-----How's your MOM?--Has she adjusted to her new enviroment?----Is BLUEFIELD gettin as much snow as we are?---All our schools are closed---
Both adults at CC.
Good Snowy Morning A lot is happening! 2 eggs-Co 1 chick in VA!! They are also expecting(maybe) another egg today at SC. Glad to see all of you on here -SUNNY welcome-have missed your being around. Hope all is well - Bike weather will be here before you know it! Kate thanks for the pics yesterday. Eagle Guy said - 2 eggs.MitsGood day for the Beach!lolThanks Sharon for new email - Bald cardinal lol Has she been around! Thanks Norma for reminding us about that one.beakspeak.com: Jason has placed Paula's videos on his site! WHOO HOO!
BUTA BUTA is in her favorite place----ASLEEP on the high logs!!!
Jo, I just looked at radar for OC, they are getting more precipitation than I am here.
Ceil If you can hear me..... You got your name on beakspeak You're a celeb, too!!!
LOL, I saw that, Jo, don't think she knows about it yet. She works on Wednesdays.
BTW, our cam looks ok. Eagle facing 1pm position now.
I think the eagle at KENT is stuck to the branch, been there all night and morning.
BTW, I redid all the links on the momsters site. Everything should be there, if it's not, please let me know what I am missing. The only I don't have is the Kent one w/ the three views, because I wasn't sure if it is permanent. If someone will post it on here, I'll put it on for now, at least.
Ok, eagle must have read my comments about him at KENT, HE JUST LEFT.
I hate to break it to everybody but it is 54° and sunny here. WHOOOHOOOO!!! Windy but that is okay. Absolutely no snow here last night. Birds have been singing so pretty this morning, just like a spring morning. I am ready for spring for sure. Norma, I had forgotten about the bald cardinal. By the way, when do cardinals lay eggs and have babies?
Do we know when the egg hatched at Norfolk? Could it have been yesterday, March 6? Please say yes!!
LIVE FEED IS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like Mema Jo had a hand in that :)
I just e-mailed Norfolk, Sharon, maybe they will let me know.
YOU are lucky SHARON---temp. 24° now---up from 19°---still snowing---May have to sell computer---Just plowed again today----$50 a plow!----ho!---Watch for "smoke signals" in the mountains SHARON!!! ho!
LIVE FEED IS UP!!
WOW---STEVEN---WOW---THANKS!---I have LIVE---STILL LOVE YOU ALL!!
That nest is a BEAUTIFUL sight!!
HI JO---Do you have bus duty today or are the schools closed & you have children?----
PA Falcon---See nothing but (bird) prints in the snow---
Quick egg roll our nest, took all of about 10 seconds!
LOL, guess it was too quick, cause she just adjusted again!
Kent auto load http://www.thermosight.com/AutoEagle.htm
Earlier--looking at SC, etc.--Reading comments---2 YouTubes were listed----watched them ---There were several other listed----VERY FUNNY!! & ENJOYABLE!!! Did you all see them?
Light snow here in Bethesda, and sun peeking thru the clouds. And I have my favorite PANDA back thanks to SHARON
Norma - No school here in Frederick Cnty today. Bus duty happens when schools have delayed openings or conference days. Grandsons are the reason for Bus Duty. Wish Megan and Dana knew about live feed....well, guess I could email them.I was on the ME blog & made a comment but it wouldn't post...???
Nice pic, Mits. I thought that's what was being "tested" earlier. Thanks camsgrammy, will put it on there now.
LIKE your PANDA MITS!-----Little BUTA BUTA---is ADORABLE!!!---Yesterday LUN LUN tried everything to get her down in the hammock----BUTA kept ducking---No Way was she going down there---LUN LUN kept trying to get a "bite" of her---The "Little Princess" could not be caught---SO FUNNY---LUN LUN left the pic---Little one climbed & climbed!!!!
Jo, on the Maine blog, they have to approve all messages before they get posted. It is an option you can put on your blog. Keeps out the spam.
Do you think Megan and Dana got lost on the old thread? LOL
I hope that warm weather gets here by tomorrow, Sharon. We still have the fine showering snow coming down.Welcome back TAI - you handsome little Prince! Glad you brought him back, Mits.Hope Glo is safely at her destination in AZ with the family.
Thanks Paula - I was thinking that maybe something like that happened as you didn't need to register or anything.I did email Dana & Megan about thelive feed being up.
I saw where another Raven Attack happened. This time it was atTwo Harbors. They are big nasty birds
This pic of TAI was taken on March 1st:) YES, Jo, got to watch out for those RAVENS:):):)!
I just read previous thread comments from this morning. Didn't realize Megan and Dana were both here. Now I don't know where they have gone.I saw Delphia's comment from last night... vacation in HI
OUr eagle is really still and/or asleep
Just saw some looking back and forth, but very small movements.
They probably got knocked off the blog now.......MEGAN, I think is ready to march on the USFW sites, and she won't be hugging trees when she gets there.
Hello, all. Just popping in after removing an IV and flushing the lines. Poor Tom. All four Shendoah cams are up, but no falcons at 12:20.
Yes, Paula, saw the slight head move, now live-feed was just acting up
Yes Mits, Ravens are rough and tough, huh?
Time for Belle to get up and shake!
Yeah, Belle is looking bald all over now!
Yes, starting to look like lots more snow than it did 2 hours ago.
Hi Sandra I have been thinking about you and your nursing duties. Tom is so lucky to have you!I had checked out the falcon cams but didn't see any on the ledges.The owls are out... not doing much...soon I hope a lot of little ones come popping out of that burrow.
Not rough and tuff enough this past year:):), Sharon.
I was watching the quad cams this a.m., Sandy, they are really clear for where they are. Hope things get better for you.
I see little birds flyin g by our nest every now and then.
BOTH EAGLES AT KENT.
I hope the Kent eagles realize that they should start to get busy about their nest and get their heads in gear about this year's family....
That was cool at Kent...you could see her leave the nest on cam 2 and then appear on the limb on cam 1....
Even though she is covered with snow you must remember that:Tolerance to cold temperatures - A bald eagle's skin is protected by feathers lined with down. The feet are cold resistance because they are mostly tendon. The outside of the bill is mostly nonliving material, with little blood supply (per Harpo)
That is not to say that she is thoroughly thrilled about the snow!Lunch Time...BBL
BELLE turning eggs & LIB just arrived---She couldn't wait to LEAVE!---
Belle just arrived right after Lib turned the eggs and he was outta there in a shot!
I thought that was Belle, arriving , the pics I took looked like Big Belle.
Both eagles at BW.
Chicks in view BW.
Lib must be jumping on the cam.
HI SANDY---Been thinking about you folks & hope all is going well!!--Must be very hard for you---How often does your help come in---We have about 6 inches of snow & still snowing---It is beautiful to watch----but it seems everything comes to a standstill when we get this much snow---Thoughts & prayers---
I only see 1 chick at BW.
Ok, I think the one was sitting on top of the other one,
Nice fish at BW, Mom is feeding them now.
JO--LUN LUN HAS BUTA IN THE HAMMOCK & SHE IS DESPERATLY TRYING TO GET OUT!!!!
Egg turning our nest.
Norma I looked too late. I see her 'free' now and up on the top log so I knows she is happy little princess. Sorry I missed how she got out of the hammock....but I can imagine!
I don't think our eagle's tail wants to go back down into the snow....I am going to close down and pray I can get back on after I clean this pc. It just may be the hotmail program, but it is so sluggish and Ineed to take the pics you all have sent and get them onto the Momsters site....... BBL
Feeding at BW.
OUR EAGLE is really SPREAD OUT!
Need to EAT!--Still SNOWING!----
MUST TAKE A LOOK AT BUTA BUTA! ho!
Guess that's where the term "Spread Eagle" comes from. LOL!
I can't see them but falcons are chatting on the ledge.
Opps, I see one's tail in the nest bow at PA.
Ok, all the rugus was Dad falcon waiting for Mom to come in...Belle is shaking snow off and turning eggs.
Awwww, Belle has her head tucked back.
She has set up her tent too.
Ok, just got back an e-mail from STEPHEN LIVING AT THE NORFOLK CAM And there is no new chick yet, they are at the 35 day mark now, last year he said it went to 38 days, so anytime now.
Snow should be ending in about an hour or less.
I have returned..Going over to momsters site to photos.......
Belle's head is up.
Well after working on this computor all day i finally got it fixed that i have the live feed up and can get into the blog BUT only using the old web page we had last year and NOT the new web page made this year.. NOW i had no problem up until almost 2 weeks ago using that page... STRANGE.. but good to see Belle even if she is in nest of snow...
wait just got a strange notice wheni sent last message..Hmmmm will copy n paste
As Paula advised us - The snow has stopped here in the valley. Now come on temps - rise, rise, rise!
hang with me here when i sent last message it didnt show up so i logged out and back in so lets see...
Nilla, Can't say I understand the new and old web page...as far as I know there is only one!
Ok you know that security alert we get before sending a message? well the first one i got is much longer: Security Alert: You are about to be redirected to a connection that us not secure: The information you are sending to the current sire might be transmitted to an nonsecure site.... DO YOU WISH TO CONTINUE? YES OR NO ... I have never got that before any ideas????

Dinner time here in this home!!! Nilla If you capture any photos and email them to me, I'll add them to the Momster's album.
Or try thishttp://www.fws.gov/nctc/cam/images/image.jpg?1173302233607
I've been watching Buta - she was sleeping on the top rail for the hammock support. Lun came and dragged her off a few minutes ago and then walked into the dayroom. Buta didn't follow - mom comes back out and walks over to her and then walks back toward the dayroom - buta still ignores. Now Buta is starting to climb again - should be interesting - I think mom wants her inside to nurse...
Just popped in to sayLord & Lady Blackwater are both in the nest. Chicks are visible.Liberty is on OUR eggs - sure is looking all around....
Aww Buta was trying to climb into the hammock - but hesitant about letting that last leg leave the wooden frame - mom came over and climbed in the hammock and dragged he into the hammock with her - bet Buta won't like that - she is Miss Independent - if it wasn't her idea she won't want to be there... but maybe mom can convince her to nurse. What a great day - both LIb and Belle on live feed and Buta cam! Awesome!
Paula i copied n pasted those numbers and heres what i got 19346160 22.214.171.124 r-uweauclaire-isp-t1-1-2-2-0.wiscnet.net ...... 126.96.36.199 host-69-48-112-18.mil.choiceone.net 19420860 188.8.131.52 the.borg.fws.gov 19420860 184.108.40.206 training.fws.gov 19420860 220.127.116.11 ...firewall.wiscnet.net/fwanalog/fw-washburnco/analog-domains.tab - 544k - Cached - Similar pages
I think its my fire wall.. Hmmmm
Well, I did not get lost, as was rumored, lucky me I am spending the afternoon with my ISP -I am going to lose my mind if one of them asks me to describe my problem again or delete my temp. internet files. They seem to think I'm a moron. Oh goodie, if I'm willing to hold for 2 more min. I get to start over with a new person.... AAAHHHH!!!
Rollin eggs and settling in the nest... Live feed is awsome
Megan calm down i have been working on the same problem all day... Right now i am thinking like i said it is maybe our firewalls????
Try this onehttp://www.edit.bonus.com/contour/act/http@@/www.fws.gov/nctc/cam/eaglecam.htm
I ran McAffes virus scan..... ran my Fix It Utilities .. Do you have the Internet Explorer thing in the bottom task bar that keeps track of the number of windows you have open??? I have that and some days its there working some days its now.. I think my computor needs an exorcisim..lolll Twight Zone
Nope Paula doesnt work and i copied all 3 lines and googled it...
Wow... Looks as though snow or sleet is just now hitting the BW nest.
18.104.22.168Try that one
Are you runnin ie? If so, what version.
YIPEE! I'm at 2nd level support! I shall now devote my life to solving this problem. Dana I have discovered after disabling and tweaking and probably screwing up my computer that this most definitely has to be a FWS issue. I give up! I have just spent 3 hrs. with my ISP reps. I found the 3rd to be the most helpful and he didn't wince once at my swearing which tended to happen after the 2nd hr mark. We tried everything, he even tried getting on the site from 3 different computers-lucky him, they opened the site every time. I am out of ideas. Back to the IT guys at NCTC-sorry guys.
I tried those numbers on the 2nd hr-same thing, cannot find server. It guy tried to explain that different computers use different paths to get to server and perhaps one of the fws servers is down in our area, but I told him others in our area are getting in with no problem.
YES, Jo, I saw the snow and sleet at BW...like the pics I sent to you, think the eastern shore is getting it more than here, although with that said it is snowing harder here than it has all day.
BBL- going to fix some dinner before my head explodes. If anyone figures this out or solves the world's energy issues(just as likely) let me know.
Lisa has news on osprey page about an upcoming show on ospreys March 9th at 9:00a.m.
I just talked to Dana and her sister who i might add does not watch the cams went into tools.. advanced and checked TLS 1.0 BOX and now she can get the 30 sec cam up... I tryed it rebooted comp and nothing... I can see the live cam its up now... She said Jill has Verizon DSL as her ISP same as me... Maybe her and i need to speak on the phone and compare our settings... Jill if you read this e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org ok?Thankss
Sun is out at our nest.
It looks like Belle just arrived in the nest with a big stick!
She sure did.
Yep and that's the truth funny but not really funny cause my sister doesn't want to watch it.
Sure do wish our cam was clearer at night!
Hey, Nilla, you got mail. Hi Sharon!
Sharon, what you doing with a towhee pic? Beautiful bird
Oh, I miss my towhee, haven't seen it sunce summer, he would come up every day and scratch at the birdseed. Hi Jo, you got mail.
HEY SHARON----I love your TOWHEE---They are so colorful--Especially the males--I have them---
Megan mail call....
Is there anyone else here in total amazement that the live feed is still workin????? KNOCK ON WOOD :)
I love the towhee....Sharon, how is Mommy today?
Looks like Belle has night duty.
Nilla...back at ya.. Hey Paula!
Egg turning our nestHey Floral
good evening dear dear friends. I feel like a lurker. Or an outsider. Have I missed a new eagle Momster, Kateaz? If so, welcome Kateaz you will love it here. Sorry I can't stay. These two little girls a handful. I have enjoyed them, even if I missed my own spring break. Their dad, my oldest son, has his spring break next week. His inlaws have an ocean front house in Florida and they are going to leave Friday. Come on Friday!!!!!! I can't wait to get back to work so I can rest. Love you all. Listen, if something happens I can't live without knowing, just email me work or home. Wish I could stay. mauley
HI MAULEY.... we will keep you posted, I'm sure:).
Mommy is pretty confused today and really wanting to come home to her dog. We are going to take the dog to her for a few minutes tomorrow. She is afraid that Peedab will forget her. I love the towhee, love watching them scratch up their food!
Hi Mauley, hope you get a break soon!!!
Bet she will be glad to see her dog, Sharon. Sorry to hear she is so confused. I love the towhee too, they really scratch up the ground. Hope mine will appear soon, last year it was around the end of March.
Aww, Sharon, I'm glad you can take the dog to see her.
Mauley, some people wouldn't understand you wanting to get back to work to get some rest - BUT I DO! lolWhat we put ourselves through for our kids! All I can say is to Hang in there because the little ones will remember their special visit for many many years!
I was hoping the Home would let you bring Peedab in to your mom for a visit. You may not get out of there with the dog! Don't let Mom stick him in a drawer! lol..... That's going to be the hard part but just seeing him should make her happy.
Well it's been a pretty interesting day. Trying different things to get to 30 sec cam. I say it's been quite a day for Megan also it seems. Even Nilla has been working at it. My sister says well the cam is nice if you enjoy stuff like that. But it's not for her. Really strange how she couldn't get it. We both were doing same things same time. Yet she would get up different pages than me in same search engine. Even checked all settings. Crazy!
Working hard at KENT.
My sister had a towhee the other day. I am out of food at the moment so I have to get some!! That is more important than my food (well sometimes).
Sharon, are you watching Kent?
Sharon, I love your towhee. We used to have them in Washington, but haven't seen any here. My mother is getting more and more confused too, especially about her medicines which I now manage. I just put in my second IV--hope Tom survives. Seriously, this is so scary.Megan, you're welcome to stop by any time as long as i'm still connected to FWS. I don't envy you an afternoon spent with ISP--especially that the problem still is not solved. Have you noticed that the birds have stripped all the red berries on the porch columns? If you have pussy willows, I'd love to replace the naked berry branches.
Paula & Megan - you have mail
Pretty amazing but a real blessing having our live feed on all day!! I'm excited!
So snack time for Mema Jo, where's everyone else??
We're, here. Just trying to solve some mysteries.
Hi Vicky. Have you heard anything from Glo as far as arriving safely in AZ?
Solve any of those mysteries, Mits? Hi Sandra- sorry I have no pussy willow. Birds do love the bittersweet, carolina wren has been sleeping in my wreath with bittersweet hanging outside front door. Oh, Hello, Vicky!
Sounds like a lot going on, Sandra. Hang in there.Do you have a nurse helping during the day?
Sandra We really amaze ourselves sometimes with what we can do! I checked out the falcon ledges in VA - all of the cams were up - even the ones in the high rise bldg.The burrowing owls were out again today. I am waiting on the little ones to come up out of that burrow.Prayers are with you Sandra & Tom & your mother.
Vicky vanished..... Perhaps she will reappear .. Maybe Vicky is giving us another mystery to solve.........
It may change overnight but my live feed has been up for 10 hours and 49 minutes. Unbelievable. Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur. I hope everybody has a really peaceful night!
As soon as I published that last post, my live feed went away. Daggone it!!!
Sandra, I will be praying for you and your family. I know how rough all this is but this too shall pass, just sometimes not quite quick enough!! I just take things one day at a time myself and do the best I can in this day!
Nite, Sharon loLove
I am playing card games for awhile
EVENING EVERYONE, HOPE ALL ARE WELL.I am tempted to put my 2 cents worth in on the puter probs., but since you have had the experts on it, I think I shall resist.One thing you might have done already is make sure your security settings in "Internet Options" are set to the "default" levels ... sometimes they get changed inadvertently and wind up filtering stuff you don't want filtered out.Haven't seen too much of nests this evening. I did get into the live feed after dark for the first time this season...looked like snow falling, but according to the weather site, it shouldn't be.Keep warm and well,Jim
Going to call it a night!Good Night EveryonePleasant dreams & peaceful sleepPrayers being said for all in needYou may need to close it down again tonight Megan..
Well I am sitting here cussing my computer. It messed up two clips so I can't make my video from today...so You'll get it tomorrow!
GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
