yes, Thank you Norma....:)
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.

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 :(
that's because the BD boy was up late.....got an e-mail from him in the wee hours of the a.m.
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).
Just looked in on the flamingoes and saw one of the chicks. So cute.
DANA----I see one little flamingo chick!!---how will she ever get out of that hole!!----fun to watch the FLAMINGOS interact with each other!! ho!
Good Morning Bev ( : Cooling off in a pool sounds so nice.
Norma the chick was trying to walk but was going the wrong way.
Good morning, Sissy. BBL
Morning, Dana, Norma, Mits, Jim, Ceil and Wanda...Hope I didn't miss anyone!Slept in a little this morning. Glad to hear and see that our Moutaineers were in the nest this morning...Moving slow this morning...too much garden work yesterday...need another cuppa
WANDA----You have a beautiful family!!---Good looking kid there too!!---Must look like his granddad!!

HELEN --- Hope you don't have any thunderstorms---Watching 'FACE THE NATION'---Ain't the same without TIM RUSSETT????
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.
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°)DJim
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".
Hey Jim, did you see the pic of you after your facial on Wanda's blog???
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!!
Dope Jim don't like crab, shrimp or lobster .... I love them. hee heeWhen 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?
DANA---Guess we will have to throw him an inner-tube!---ho!
Good thought there Norma lol
GOOD NEWS---TOM BROKAW will be filling in on 'FACE THE NATION'!!
Wonder how Deb's bites are this morning.
I was wondering where MAGPIE is this am!!---Does she work on Sundays?
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°)DJim
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!!!
Norma Magpie was on the other page She is working today.
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.
Good Morning Sharon ( :You'll you ok....Mattie will miss you too...but the hugs when she gets back will be wonderful.. ( :
WHOA---At least 7 burrowing owls in the sun!!!
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°)DJim
THANKS CEIL!!---I forgot I was late this am!!----MAGPIE has such funny come backs!!
Good morning, everyone. I slept in today, also. I have the flamingo cam open and see one chick so far.
Watched in Jim. Good to see they are getting better.
Yes ty Jim watched it yesterday a couple of times. Great video of them in there.
Morning Deb, How are the bites doing? Better I hope.
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°)DJim
Jim, I watched the video you posted. It was nice to see the tower and how much room the chicks have.
Norma - Meet the Press was the show Tim Russert hosted...Brian Williams is going to fill in for now.
How's the skeeter bites this morning, Deb?
And they are rebroadcasting the memorial service for Tim today on MSNBC...this afternoon.
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.
SCOTTISH OSPRY & CHICK---are doing well----Expect CHICK to fledge in JULY!!----
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
PAULA I watched it this am---TOM BROKAW will take over the show until the elections are over!!--BRIAN WILLIAMS only filled in today!!
Gotcha Norma, Thanks.
It comes on here in 5 minutes.
JOIN THE CLUB DANA!!----I am always wrong---& I think I am always right!!----(that's not a good trait either)!!!
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!----
The best thing about being the 'last' one to join in on our blog is that I can say one big Good Morning Everyoneout there in Eagle landA 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.
good morning this is justin
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 RAIDWould I not love to have your pic doing that! lol
HI JUSTINYou miss your sister already don't you! Well, I missed not seeing you the other weekend at the Nest Visit!I hope you'll plan to come see everyone in October at the Open House
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?
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!
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!
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!!!----
Right on, Jo!Looked at your newest pics, Wanda...China City--now I know!
JO!!---SUZANNE told me that Fri---I want to make sure we all WISH "GYPSY" a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!---ho!!---She also has all these bird videos & her kittens LOVE to watch them!!---Isn't that FUNNY?
Good Morning Jo, HV and Justin ( :
HEY DEB!!---Is TOM BROKAW from ND or SD?---I forget---I know he married the MISS ND or MISS SD!!-----They always kid him about that!!
Jo, I think Suz is going this coming weekend.
HI PAULA I LIKE THE VIDEO YOU PUT ON YOUTUBE
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.
Adult in our NEST!
Liberty or Belle in our nest
Now two juvies!
2 eaglets in our nest
2 Eaglets our nest...one mantling
Flamingo Chick is visible
There was just a zoo person on the flamingo cam, put a chick back in the nest. I see two chicks now.
&%#%(@$ Pic....all fuzzy...can't see our babes!
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.
One eating, the other one watching intently
Looks like the "7th inning stretch"on the flamingo cam. lol
Both eaglets were looking to the right, now eating has resumed but other one is still looking
LOL, and back to eyeing the other's fish!
WOW!!---DEB---That is so interesting!!!---Have you ever seen him!----I didn't realize you lived in a college town!!--
PAULA --- I have the rainbow nest!!
Gotta shut down for a little while...burned up both my CD writers...going to install a new one....BBL
Looks like Mama Flamingo was turning eggs, but now settled back down.
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.
One eaglet left in our nest.
MT NEST FOR NOW

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!
Hi Iris and Nature ( :One eaglet in our nest 12 o'clock
HELLO BACK FROM BEACH:)
DANA, you get another facial...150:)
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.
Norma...shut down your 'puter and stay safe!!
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!! ( :
Mits is there a volunteer for the flamingos?
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!
Tiny is still in the nest
Hi Gang!!! All 3 and one parent!! WOW!!!!!!!!!
2 in the nest...one mantling
Looks like Pearl is gonna leave
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.
H Vicky gal ( :So good to see you here....makes me happy happy happy ( :
Still 2 in the nest
Looks like some rain will hit the nest sooon
One in our nest
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....::(
Tiny is gone now
Good evening everyone!
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
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.
no rain here Dana, just haze and patchy smoke from the Carolina's
off to fix some dinner...later.
I did find some information as far as the flamingo egg. If it falls off the nesting mound it is not retrieved.
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
also from flamingo pageDietFlamingos eat algae, mollusks, larvae chrysalides of brine-flies and brine-shrimps, which give them their pink color
Different Zoos feed differently some feed them carrots to get their coloring.
BBL...going to go have dinner with my son up at Ruby's...
Oregon nest has snow in it. Conn nest those osprey are big. Osprey at BWO nest. Our nest mt.Have a good dinner Paula.
Enjoy your meal Paula ... they have good food.
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.
From Sea World about baby flamingosChick 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.
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----
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!!---
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!!
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!
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.
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
DANA---GOOGLE--"FLAMINGO DANCE"---YOU TUBE from the PBS NATURE show--is the first thing you will see!!
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!!
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!"
Good evening all bird watchers. I just had to get on and chuckle over NORMA'S panda hatching. :)
I like to know why they keep beeking eachother too JO
OK DEB thanks for the heads up. They look like a lot of snakes moving.
That's all I have found so far, not a lot of info on any of the sites I've checked.
HEY DEB!---I think you have it covered----The FLAMINGOS are just fussing with each other!----Aren't they fascinating!!!----
Jas anyone of you ever seen any of these babies being fed yet
Has I mean :)
A flamingo's eye is bigger than its brain! I have seen them getting fed.
Thanks DEB. That makes me feel better.
Post a Comment
Apologies for my neglect on this site. I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
