wvgal_dana said...

Oh Wanda what you said about when your daughter goes to the ocean.
When mine moved to Florida. I told her to call so I know they got thre ok. She called and said, "Mom I'm not going to say anything just listen". It was that beautiful ocean sound she knows I love.

normabyrd said...

Good morning everyone! The birthday boy (Andrew) is still sacked out, probably sleep through the first half of his 19th birthday.

It is a beautiful morning here in Bluefield, gonna try to hit a pool after while. MT nest :(

MITS said...

that's because the BD boy was up late.....got an e-mail from him in the wee hours of the a.m.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Saw a little bird in there a while ago, foraging for nestovers.

Helen, I sure would love to be there at the beach with ya!! Won't be going back to the lake till 4th of July weekend (31st anniversary on July 4th).

Ceil said...

Just looked in on the flamingoes and saw one of the chicks. So cute.

Good Morning Bev ( :
Cooling off in a pool sounds so nice.

normabyrd said...

HELEN --- Hope you don't have any thunderstorms---Watching 'FACE THE NATION'---Ain't the same without TIM RUSSETT????

wvgal_dana said...

Seen a good commercial on tv. To help save the earth from plastic. Cleaners instead of throwing your empty bottle away. You buy this small concentrated. Fill your emplty with so much water and add this. Bingo got your cleaner again.

movin said...

Mornin, Wanda, Norma, Ceil, Mits, Dana and Sissy ... so far.

You're all bright and shiny as a new dime this morning. I like your pics, Wanda. It's just too bad for the industry back there that nobody in the group likes crab or crab legs!

C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

wvgal_dana said...

Norma that chick down there will be ok. Parents feed them for 3 months. Now if it rains that is another story. Have to "wait, watch and see".

paula eagleholic said...

Hey Jim, did you see the pic of you after your facial on Wanda's blog???

normabyrd said...

PAULA---I slept in too this am!!--- till 8:00 ---I haven't done that in years!!-----We had our county 'Relay for Life' last night & I think I am----'way' out of shape!!----walked too many laps!!

wvgal_dana said...

Dope Jim don't like crab, shrimp or lobster .... I love them. hee hee

When we go, we go where Wanda is showing you they eat. Just never run into Wanda.

By the way Wanda you ran into Jill there before. Have you seen her there lately?

normabyrd said...

DANA---Guess we will have to throw him an inner-tube!---ho!

wvgal_dana said...

Good thought there Norma lol

normabyrd said...

GOOD NEWS---TOM BROKAW will be filling in on 'FACE THE NATION'!!

wvgal_dana said...

Wonder how Deb's bites are this morning.

normabyrd said...

I was wondering where MAGPIE is this am!!---Does she work on Sundays?

movin said...

You know, I thought that pic looked like me from the rear, but I remembered somebody on the blog was married to a "Jim," so I figure that's who it was.

You all sure look beautiful since the "facial."

C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

normabyrd said...

BLUEFIELD SHARON!!----Don't worry about BEAUTIFUL MATTIE!!----Just give her a day or so----SHE WILL HAVE THAT CAMP WHIPPED INTO SHAPE!!!----ho!---ENJOY your week!!!

Ceil said...

Norma Magpie was on the other page She is working today.

Ceil said...

Morning Sharon, mother of the birthday boy. Have a good day. Mattie will be fine. She will miss you as much as you will miss her.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Sharon ( :

You'll you ok....Mattie will miss you too...but the hugs when she gets back will be wonderful.. ( :

normabyrd said...

WHOA---At least 7 burrowing owls in the sun!!!

movin said...

Did anyone mention that there's a hacking tower video of the two eaglets on Santa Cruz Island??

Posted late yesterday. Very interesting. I think the Survivor from No. Cal. is a female, but she's not very dominant ... maybe she's younger than the PH eaglet, which is the male with the ripped beak.

C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

normabyrd said...

THANKS CEIL!!---I forgot I was late this am!!----MAGPIE has such funny come backs!!

Deb said...

Good morning, everyone. I slept in today, also. I have the flamingo cam open and see one chick so far.

Ceil said...

Watched in Jim. Good to see they are getting better.

wvgal_dana said...

Yes ty Jim watched it yesterday a couple of times. Great video of them in there.

Ceil said...

Morning Deb, How are the bites doing? Better I hope.

movin said...

I've got to make some moves toward the laundry room .. if it's open.

Last night I put two loads in the washers, but I was locked out before I returned for the dryer cycle.

I guess technically it's supposed to close at 10 p.m., which it did last night, but most guards leave it till 11 on weekends, and some don't lock it at all. I just got unlucky last night.

I'll probably smell better in this heat with some clean underwear.... Just a guess though.

C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

Deb said...

Jim, I watched the video you posted. It was nice to see the tower and how much room the chicks have.

paula eagleholic said...

Norma - Meet the Press was the show Tim Russert hosted...Brian Williams is going to fill in for now.

paula eagleholic said...

How's the skeeter bites this morning, Deb?

paula eagleholic said...

And they are rebroadcasting the memorial service for Tim today on MSNBC...this afternoon.

Deb said...

A lot smaller than yesterday, Paula. I want to go see how many are in the bushes this morning, but I will wait and come up with a way to check from a distance.

normabyrd said...

SCOTTISH OSPRY & CHICK---are doing well----Expect CHICK to fledge in JULY!!----

wvgal_dana said...

By the way I had gone back on other comments I made. Of course I made a MISTAKE can you imagine that.
Flamingo chicks are not fed for 3 months duh it is 3 WEEKS. Sorry

normabyrd said...

PAULA I watched it this am---TOM BROKAW will take over the show until the elections are over!!--BRIAN WILLIAMS only filled in today!!

PAULA---I didn't mean to sound like I was correcting you---I just finished watching it!---I am a NEWS HOUND!!---I like BROKAW better than BRIAN WILLIAMS too!----

Mema Jo said...

The best thing about being the 'last' one to join in on our blog is that I can say one big
Good Morning Everyone
out there in Eagle land


A beautiful morning here in my valley and over at our nest I'm sure! I hope Megan is having a good market day.

Norma just so I get to tell you and others that Mon June 23 is the birthday of Suzanne's GYPSY. Suz said she would be 5 yrs old. I sent Suz an email for Gypsy - I hope she gets it. I forget what day NatureNut said that Suz was going down to the park to help band the Osprey this year like Paula did the other year.

T-Bird said...

Mema Jo said...

Deb Just get your binoculars out to check out those bushes!! Get one of those Bee Keepers' hats with the net over the face and get your gloves, long pants & long sleve shirt! Then ATTACK WITH RAID

I hope you'll plan to come see everyone in October at the Open House

T-Bird said...

HI SISSY

Hedgesviller said...

Wanda and Dana....where do you go for your crabs?
Yep, Magpie's working! Hear her on the scanner.
Is Megan away or just real busy? Anyone heard from her?

Mema Jo said...

Megan should be in Shepherdstown at the Market... I know we haven't heard from her for a day or two - Sometimes her puter goes down..
I'll think Positive - she's out selling her plants and posies!

paula eagleholic said...

Megan was on the other day...she is busy with markets on the weekends, she has Charlestown on Saturday and Shepherdstown on Sunday....but I believe there was a birthday party yesterday for her MIL, I think.

Norma - Thanks for the info...I must not have heard all of it...and I like to learn new things everyday!

normabyrd said...

I am WRONG AGAIN---PAULA!!----I just watched the news show that TIM RUSSETT hosted--NBC----that's the one WILLIAMS hosted this am---Am watching 'FACE THE NATION' now!----CBS---different show!!!----

Hedgesviller said...

normabyrd said...

paula eagleholic said...

Jo, I think Suz is going this coming weekend.

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, Justin!

T-Bird said...

HI PAULA I LIKE THE VIDEO YOU PUT ON YOUTUBE

Deb said...

Norma, Tom is a South Dakotan. He is from Yankton, which is 25 miles from me--that's where most of the eagle pics I get are from. He went to school here in Vermillion at USD.

Deb said...

wvgal_dana said...

Mema Jo said...

Flamingo Chick is visible

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks, Justin!

Deb said...

There was just a zoo person on the flamingo cam, put a chick back in the nest. I see two chicks now.

paula eagleholic said...

&%#%(@$ Pic....all fuzzy...can't see our babes!

Deb said...

Just realized the flamingo cam only plays so long then restarts and shows the same thing over, so who knows when the zoo person was there.

paula eagleholic said...

One eating, the other one watching intently

Mema Jo said...

Looks like the "7th inning stretch"
on the flamingo cam. lol

T-Bird said...

BYE

paula eagleholic said...

Bye, Justin!

paula eagleholic said...

Both eaglets were looking to the right, now eating has resumed but other one is still looking

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, and back to eyeing the other's fish!

Hedgesviller said...

Looks like Mama Flamingo was turning eggs, but now settled back down.

wvgal_dana said...

bbl

Deb said...

No, I haven't ever seen him. He does come back every once in awhile. He gave Yankton quite a bit of money a few years ago and they used it on a nature trail by the river. USD is where I saw Bill talk, Norma.

Mema Jo said...

One eaglet left in our nest.

Mema Jo said...

MT NEST FOR NOW

It is surely a BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!
Love reading all your comments.

Hedgesviller said...

Norma,
No more days scheduled right now. It was kind of boring! Met a lot of people, but not a lot of buyers! You know that old saying..."it's the economy, stupid"...well, it is evident!!!

Deb said...

JUVIE IN OUR NEST!

Hedgesviller said...

Somebody is in our nest! Looks like he's dancing!

paula eagleholic said...

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like lunchtime

NatureNut said...

Checking back---2 juvies in nest.
Severe thunderstorm watch for almost everywhere--WV, MD (western shore), VA until 8 PM.Been beautiful here, but a few clouds now.
Wash. Post had article today, pg. A10 about "French Region Saves Iconic White Storks From Brink"!Populatiob hit 270 prs. after dwindling to 9!!! Wow!

wvgal_dana said...

Hi Iris and Nature ( :

One eaglet in our nest 12 o'clock

MITS said...

HELLO BACK FROM BEACH:)

MITS said...

DANA, you get another facial...150:)

wvgal_dana said...

Those flamingo nest need baby railing around nest. Seems like eggs hatch and some babies falls out of nest. They seem to try and crawl up the dirt. One has tried all day not getting anywhere. Just watched one looks like almosst back to parents.

Hedgesviller said...

Norma...shut down your 'puter and stay safe!!

wvgal_dana said...

I do Mits WOW I need it bad. She cut my hair too short. It will be so relaxing. My day out at the spa oh boy!! ( :

wvgal_dana said...

Mits is there a volunteer for the flamingos?

Hedgesviller said...

Will that baby flamingo be ok? Worry that in the heat/sun he may dehydrate. Has anyone fed him??? Poor little thing.
Hearing thunder...guess it's time to shut down here, too!
Everyone stay safe!

paula eagleholic said...

Tiny is still in the nest

Just Vicky said...

Hi Gang!!! All 3 and one parent!! WOW!!!!!!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

2 in the nest...one mantling

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like Pearl is gonna leave

wvgal_dana said...

HV the little flamingo chick has been fed often. I am not worried about dehyd. I more worried if it rains and when they step on him/her.

There was another out of the nest but it made it back up to nest; it wasn't has high up as this ones nest is.

wvgal_dana said...

H Vicky gal ( :

So good to see you here....makes me happy happy happy ( :

paula eagleholic said...

Still 2 in the nest

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like some rain will hit the nest sooon

wvgal_dana said...

One in our nest

wvgal_dana said...

I don't think flamingo chicks have those long legs at birth like storks do. Cause that one baby used its wings to plow through the dirt to get back to nest.
This one that has been out of nest all day yesterday and today can't make it up the steep hill.
I have tried and tried and tried with my cursor to push him/her but nothing happens....::(

paula eagleholic said...

Tiny is gone now

T-Bird said...

Good evening everyone!

MITS said...

Dana, as I posted yesterday, there are cam voulunteers sometimes ,on the fixed cams, but not everyday, and not always all day, they work 2 hour shifts, when they do work

wvgal_dana said...

Is this Thelma or Justin?

Thanks Mits sorry I do remember that. I had wanted to ask some questions.

Hope your not getting rain at the beach. We are going to have a storm soon.

MITS said...

no rain here Dana, just haze and patchy smoke from the Carolina's

MITS said...

off to fix some dinner...later.

wvgal_dana said...

I did find some information as far as the flamingo egg. If it falls off the nesting mound it is not retrieved.

MITS said...

Can’t see any animals?
The animal in this exhibit may have moved out of view. FONZ volunteers operate some cams, but most of our cams show a fixed view.

Copied from the flamingo page

MITS said...

also from flamingo page
Diet
Flamingos eat algae, mollusks, larvae chrysalides of brine-flies and brine-shrimps, which give them their pink color

wvgal_dana said...

Different Zoos feed differently some feed them carrots to get their coloring.

paula eagleholic said...

BBL...going to go have dinner with my son up at Ruby's...

Ceil said...

Oregon nest has snow in it. Conn nest those osprey are big. Osprey at BWO nest. Our nest mt.Have a good dinner Paula.

wvgal_dana said...

Enjoy your meal Paula ... they have good food.

wvgal_dana said...

Once flamingo chicks leave the nest, they gather in groups called créches, a French word for crib. Parent flamingos recognize their chick's voice within the créche and will feed no chick but their own. Baby flamingos are fed by regurgitation. Flamingo "milk", produced by both parents, is a red liquid with a nutritional value similar to the milk that people drink.

wvgal_dana said...

From Sea World about baby flamingos


Chick at hatching.

1. Newly-hatched chicks have gray or white down feathers, a straight red bill, and plump, swollen red or pink legs.

2. The leg swelling decreases approximately 48 hours after hatching, and the red bill and legs turn black in seven to ten days.

3. After hatching, a flamingo chick is not very agile. Movement is limited to pushing its wings or lifting its head.

normabyrd said...

Just saw the 2 RED PANDAS that hatched at the KNOXVILLE ZOO!!---Tiny little beauties!---NEWS is their father resides at the NZOO!!
COOL!---They have been on all the news programs----

normabyrd said...

Wondered if you folks in the NCTC area received any thunder storms and hail!!-----Happened here a few hours ago!!----It was hot & all of a sudden I heard this noise on the upper deck!---RAINING & HAILING at the same time----temp dropped then to 60°---back up to 72 now!!---IT WAS SCARY!!---

normabyrd said...

DANA---ENJOYING your FLAMINGO facts!!---If you google them---there you can see them dancing---I had seen that on the NATURE show----IT IS A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT---They do this when they are mating----I read all of that a while back---I LOVE watching them---so graceful!!

Mema Jo said...

Norma lol
Going to call you a 'bird brain' - you know that I mean "Birds on the brain" because red pandas can't get hatched!

Hedgesviller said...

Thanks for flamingo info, Dana! You're so smart!
Hey, Vicki! Hope you've had a good weekend.
Glad you survived the storms, Norma! Not much here..just a little noise and a few sprinkles.

Mema Jo said...

If anyone finds out why those flamingos keep 'beaking' each other - please post. I don't know if is a 'nasty' gesture or not. It could be something very normal for them to do. I guess I am thinking of Pecky Pearl

normabyrd said...

DANA---GOOGLE--"FLAMINGO DANCE"---YOU TUBE from the PBS NATURE show--is the first thing you will see!!

normabyrd said...

SORRY JO! ho!---I was thinking about the DANCE the FLAMINGO do during mating time!!---

I am not real swift when I am excited about something!!---forgive me!!

Deb said...

Although Flamingoes are extremely social, they spend quite a bit of time fighting with each other. These are usually only noisy squabbles and pecking skirmishes and never cause any damage or harm. When nesting, you can see that each nest is placed exactly one neck length away from its neighbor, just within arguing distance! The most disastrous consequence of all this fighting is broken or "scrambled eggs!"

carolinabeachmom said...

Good evening all bird watchers. I just had to get on and chuckle over NORMA'S panda hatching. :)

carolinabeachmom said...

I like to know why they keep beeking eachother too JO

carolinabeachmom said...

OK DEB thanks for the heads up. They look like a lot of snakes moving.

Deb said...

That's all I have found so far, not a lot of info on any of the sites I've checked.

normabyrd said...

HEY DEB!---I think you have it covered----The FLAMINGOS are just fussing with each other!----Aren't they fascinating!!!----

carolinabeachmom said...

Jas anyone of you ever seen any of these babies being fed yet

carolinabeachmom said...

Has I mean :)

Deb said...

A flamingo's eye is bigger than its brain! I have seen them getting fed.

carolinabeachmom said...

Thanks DEB. That makes me feel better.
