You had them all to yourself, Eagle-Eyed Sissy....Now we have one in the nest.

Good Day to All..

magpie said...

Thanks for New Thread, and Good Morning Steve. Appreciate all you do...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Well good morning! Thanks for the new thread Steve. I have been over there talking to myself.

magpie said...

Nah, Sissy, I was listening! I just happened to notice that a new thread was up and was trying to be the early bird that caught the thread! You could have kept blogging over there and reached #300...
And you, were the one that saw all the Eagles, so you can talk to yourself all you want!

Sorry I didn't put something on the old thread to let you know.

Headed out to the VA Center to spend some time with the Veterans.

TTFN Have a good day.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks for all you do Magpie. I am sure the Vets really appreciate that. I started to hang out over there and go for the facial but I was lonesome!!

magpie said...

Sissy - I think some or all of us don't have the sound at Hummer nest now...did you see my comment, I think what you saw, the "anteater", was a Coati, for which there is info on the open-up page on the Hummer cam....

Continuing prayers for Anne-Marie's daughter in law and all the family today...

Back Later...enjoy the wildlife.

xoxo

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yeah, I lost sound too. I did see that message. It is so cool, I love this camera, sound or no sound. Liked it better with the sound but I do medical transcription, so I need to listen to the docs instead of the birds (would rather listen to the birds, though, just wouldn't get paid for that!). :)

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...
Margy, I've been wanting to tell you that I, too, remember Swinging Bridge. We have been going over there since I was a little girl. My dad use to pull his car into the water (on the low side) and wash it. I thought that was wonderful! I have MANY stories of the Swinging Bridge.

magpie said...

Chrissy has posted a SAD REPORT (yahoo email) on the Loch Garten nest, the youngest chick seems to have died, more information to be posted later on their site. Seems just too little, and got overtaken by one of the other chicks.

Take care, all.

xo

magpie said...

Good Morning, COSTUME LADY, yes Swinging Bridge, and you must have had the joy of being able to actually BE on the swinging bridge when it was still there...what beautiful memories of that place...

Just Vicky said...

Good morning eagle lovers! Have a wonderful day, stay cool!!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning all! Haven't been up long. Getting ready to start work.

I don't know what Swinging Bridge you all are talking about but I used to love getting on those. When Andrew was little, he used to call them swanging bradge! Daddy even built him a little one on his playground in the back yard. Still there.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Hate I missed the babies this morning. Thelma said she saw all 3 in the nest about 6:30 this morning.

normabyrd said...

normabyrd said...

GOODY--GOODY! SHARON!!!---May we come play on ANDREW'S bridge!!!---
Hey do you think you will be giving out lemonade today???

Costume Lady said...

VICKY doesn't have to worry about flooding; she can shake her EAGLE STICK at the water!

normabyrd said...

MAGPIE---Where can I find out about ANNE'S daughter-in-law?---Was she in an accident?

Costume Lady said...

The Swinging Bridge that we have been talking about is about 10 miles outside of Martinsburg. Many fond memories. It was a gathering place for people of all ages, but especially the teens. We swam, had picnics and cookouts and of course, walked on the Swinging Bridge. That was before Drugs and Drinking.

Costume Lady said...

NORMA, she has cancerous tumors on her spine. WAs operated on last night.

MITS said...

GOOD THURSDAY MORNING EVERYONE Heat and Humidity are on the way back, plus 'smoke from the fires" don, don, don, da, da don,don, remember that song:) Prayers for all in need today, for healing and safe travels...well actual words were smoke on the water, I think, but anyhow, will be breezing towards us

MITS said...

yes, Norma, go back to last nights posts....also I sent you some mail:)

magpie said...

NORMA -
Anne-Marie was posting late yesterday afternoon. Her daughter in law was having growths removed from her spinal cord, and Anne did not know if they were going to be found to be benign or not. She was waiting for a phone call, got it, and posted, that it was not good news. That's what we have so far.
A dear daughter in law that is more like a daughter than a DIL.

Love to all, out to the VA.

Take Care, Please. xoxo

MITS said...

I'm so lucky I have a dear d-i-l, that I love like a daughter, so precious.

normabyrd said...

I scanned last nite's blog!!---I am so sorry--ANNE MARIE---I will keep your daughter-in-law & family in my thoughts & prayers!!!---Please give us an update when you have time---GOD BLESS----

MITS said...

so nice to see FINNEY'S NEST BACK UP AND RUNNING:)

normabyrd said...

CEIL----ENJOY OREGON!!---Wishing you folks a safe trip!!---REMEMBER---you are expected to bring us all a present!!----ho!

normabyrd said...

normabyrd said...

MITS said...

FINNEY'S NEST

MITS said...

NORMA, try the link again, 3 cutties this year:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning, normabyrd. He is just munching and hanging out, what he does best. I love those bears!! The hummers have been really busy too. Real pretty bird as been at the hummer feeder, gray with a black head. Wish I knew what it was. I will have to research it when I am not working and have time to dig. Sorry to hear about Anne Maries' daughter-in-law. We will certainly pray.

Been 6 years today since Daddy died, been missing him and Mommy alot.

normabyrd said...

The pink flamingo CHICK was next to MOM'S foot!----MOM stepped down off the mound---Little one looked down---but stayed up on mound!!---brave little thing!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

the coati is at the hummer feeder.

normabyrd said...

HELEN----THAT JUST BLOWS MY MIND!!-----I get the same thing!!!!---ADS on left---1st one has a light house!!

MITS said...

yes, Norma, lighthouse on the left, but you picture does not connect????

normabyrd said...

WANDA---Just read your note telling VICKY to use her EAGLE STICK to get rid of the flooding!!-----Think about it!!!---With that EAGLE STICK---She could 'FLOAT' right down to the mouth of the MISSISSIPPI!!!

normabyrd said...

CEIL!!---Not even a snow flake in the OREGON NEST!!!

normabyrd said...

YEAH!---That a MYSTERY!!---Thanks for trying!!!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Bedford wildlife report -- there is a crow in the backyard with 3 mockingbirds trying really hard to chase it off. Funny sight because they keep swooping down on it and it will duck and then try to eat. Two feet away is a bunny that seems really oblivious to all of this! :)

MITS said...

ah, the osprey, look like they are trying to build a nest at BWO, someone better tell them...it is too late!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Magpie, Bev, Wanda, Vicky, Norma, Mits, Sharon, and Ceil traveling.

Prayers for Anne's DIL

Wanda we loved Swinging Bridge always washed car their, swam and ate.......that was the good times !!

Sad about the chick...

wvgal_dana said...

Sissy do you see that beautiful light green bird on the feeder? It is beautiful!

normabyrd said...

3 burrowing owls sunning!!

wvgal_dana said...

It sure does Mits...better than before

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

MITS said...

the CLOUDED LEOPARD IS ON THE ZOO CAM NOW.....just a gorgeous animal

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

what is that, do you know? Also there is a gray one with a black head, don't know what it is.

Costume Lady said...

HELEN...your third FACIAL results have been posted, along with Nature Nut's first FACIAL.

normabyrd said...

PA PERGRINE FALCONS' SITE!---Haven't seen any falcons there lately----But I read there are 2 juvies & FEMALE PARENT---have been there!---The roost on the other high bldgs. in area!!

MITS said...

omg. I disappeared, lol....

wvgal_dana said...

Look how BIG that one hummingbird is?? OMgoodness

wvgal_dana said...

I think Mits is hiding out there in that boat......

NatureN can't help looking at herself lol

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I don't think that is a hummer. That is the one I have been talking about.

wvgal_dana said...

Sissy I don't know what these birds are. I never seen a hummer as big....or some of these other beautiful birds.

normabyrd said...

The CT site----4 CHICKS are alone---& are lined up around the nest!!-----Their 'TWEEDY' feathers are blended together!----HANDSOME BIRDS!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

there is a guide for identification but it is hard to see the details to identify them. I love this camera, though.

normabyrd said...

DANA---what site are you all watching humming birds?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

www.wildlifefocus.org/webcam/index.shtml

I think that is the right address. It is in Ecuador

MITS said...

WEBCAM IN THE FOREST HUMMER SITE

wvgal_dana said...

That's it Sissy for the hummers

wvgal_dana said...

That Osprey at BWO needs to read the manual on when they head south.

wvgal_dana said...

Sissy my guide just shows the hummers. Doesn't show the other birds.

wvgal_dana said...

That one must be the one you was talking about; green black ontop of head wings blackish and body green.

wvgal_dana said...

Both Pandas at DC they are showing on cams are sleeping.

movin said...

GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE...

It's a cloudy 65° in the early morning in So Cal, but it is plotted on the weather channel to be a beautiful, sunny 78°.

Did you all find Steffi's Catalina Report this morning?

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, Eagle Friends!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Our nest is looking really picked over and clean!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

wvgal_dana said...

Oh oh there is 2 Toucan's

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning everyone! Lots of news here on the blog -

Checking out some cams - missed the clouded leopard earlier..love the markings on them.
Headed for emails........ BBL

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry Sissy was on the stork page and didn't see you already commented.

Good Morning Paula and Jim

No Jim

wvgal_dana said...

Sissy you notice not as many hummers when the toucan's are there?

wvgal_dana said...

I wish they would put that one little flamingo chick up on the mound. It keeps using all its strength trying to get up there.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Jo with this hot weather good time for shorter hair ( :

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yeah, dana, i guess toucans and hummers don't mix well.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

bears are SNNOOOOOZZZZZINNNG.

movin said...

It looks like ZZ laid back trying to act like her mother eating her bamboo...

Deb said...

Good morning everyone. It rained here, started about 3 and didn't quite until 6;30, more on the way, only supposed to hit the low 80's here.

movin said...

Look at all the beautiful chicks being fed by Finny this morning...probably evening there.

Jim

wvgal_dana said...

/webcam.htm

wvgal_dana said...

Been searching cams went back checked on flamingo chick and he/she is up on the mound yeah!!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Seen hand with cup that filled the hummers more liquid to drink.

Deb said...

I am going to see if I can get a better shot of all the herons. BB:

Lolly said...

Good morning all! Boy, did I ever sleep in this morning. Slept like a log til 9:00. That is NOT me!

Have been opening cams and reading the blog....thought I better say good morning before it was afternoon.

Wish we could hear something from Anne Marie!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Deb and Lolly ( :

Lolly said...

Wanda I should have stayed on a little longer last night so I would have know you were there. Loved the pictures! NN is really beautiful! Those second facials done just right and spread over the bod are just great!

Deb If you go back to yesterdays posts....you could be #300 post and earn a facial. It is just waiting there for you! LOL

Lolly said...

Good Morning Dana!! And how are you this fine day?

Lolly said...

Cool!!!! Just saw my first toucan on the hummer cam. And, of course, all hummers were gone. Interesting!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Lolly ty scouting the cams ( :

and you?

wvgal_dana said...

Going to read paper bl

MITS said...

adult eagle at BWE

movin said...

tHere's a crow or large blackbird in the middle of the WE nest.

I think everyone was talking about them the other day. What did you decide they were?

C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

MITS said...

Hello, just heard from Ceil, they are right outside of Pittsburgh, she is still not feeling well, says her eyes are to the skies, but not seeing anything, will be stopping in Illinois or Indiana tonight

MITS said...

pandas are up and eating, sloth bears are playing

MITS said...

BTW, Ceil says to say HELLO

Lolly said...

Sorry Dana, said good morning, then left!! I was sending an email to Chrissy. I always send a "book", so it took a while.

MITS said...

can't remember what I was going to say, tried to send a post 4 times...:)

MITS said...

NOW I REMEMBER

All have a nice weekend. I'm taking tomorrow off to do my Saturday stuff
(and nap), so I will be half way alert on Saturday for the Osprey
banding.

Lisa cannot go, she has to work this weekend, so I'm sorry I'm not going
to finally get to meet her. But I believe Bob Quinn is still going, and
Loretta (NatureNut) is going, and I have no earthly idea who else is
going to be there. In any case, Momsters will be represented!

Should be a great time, and a good learning experience.

Have a great weekend, all. I'll take pics and send them around. Can't
put them on Momsters anymore, bummer.

Suz

Hedgesviller said...

Have a fun weekend, Suz.
Sorry Ceil isn't feeling any better--what a way to start a cross-country trip.
Hey, Vicki...glad you are alive and well! Thought maybe you'd taken the stick for a really l-o-n-g walk!
Wanda, Margie, Dana...by the time I came here ('71) the Swinging Bridge was in pretty bad shape...missing boards, etc. Barely safe...but safe enough for 22 yrs. old...crossed it CAREFULLY!
THink they attempted repairs a few times but vandals undid it. Last time I saw it beofre they took it down it was so overgrown w/ brush that you couldn't get near it. I always heard that at nighttime it was a "lovers' lane" spot...true???

eagle-eyed sharon said...

We have a lovely eaglet in our nest!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

who is the baby, does anyone know?

Deb said...

Just as I have to leave. I am off to eye doctor. I got a few good pictures of the heron and pelicans. I will have to go back on a sunny day. By the time I got there it was sprinkling and a downpour when I left. I will post them later, when the dilating stuff wears off.

movin said...

wELL, Sharon, how are you?

I think the eaglet is a male ... probably No. 3.

Is your Live Feed working?

MITS said...

off to beach....bbl.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

looks like the bees have taken over the hummingbird feeder in Ecuador. BOOO!!!

Hedgesviller said...

Just had a (broad-winged, I think) hawk perched right outside the sunroom. Also saw several bluebirds earlier...not to mention the always present cards and jays! I've never seen the bluebirds here when there wasn't snow on the ground!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

The hummers can't get to it for the bees. Need to run over (down) there and shoo them away!

magpie said...

Sissy - You are Queen of the Hummer Cam! I told Chrissy that you are CAMPED OUT ON THIS SITE, and that you have seen both Toucan and Coati....

xo

magpie said...

I saw a man in Martinsburg today walking up the street from the train station, and he was sporting a lovely Eagle Walking Stick! I had to ask him where he got it....his daughter worked at the Springs Mills Rocs (Shell Station, near Exit 2o I-81) and got it for him a few years ago. I told him about the NCTC Eagle Site, and about VICKY's Eagle Walking Stick. I will have to check out the Rocs to see if they still have them.

magpie said...

HEDGIE: I (think) I sent you a YAHOO...let me know if you don't get it....

magpie said...

COSTUME LADY: Your artwork and makeovers, are too much for words!
I enjoy going back and looking at all of the Facials....

Swinging Bridge, does indeed hold many memories. I consider myself very fortunate that I am OLD ENOUGH to have seen and walked on the little foot bridge before its unfortunate demise.

XO Hello and Best Wishes to All..

floralgirl said...

YES, the live feed is working!

magpie said...

Meteor Showers predicted for tonight, the Bootids....should start around 10:30 and last through the night. Hope there are some to see...Make Wishes on the "shooting stars" if you see them.

I, the LONE SWORDFISH, am headed for a LONG NAP right now so I can do a little stargazing later. Back to work Friday for Five Tens....


TTFN

Deb said...

Live feed is up

Deb said...

I see you already know that. I just got home and it opened.

Deb said...

Going to close my eyes for awhile until they get back to normal,

Lolly said...

Toucan at the hummer site!

Hedgesviller said...

Wanda,
LOVED Margy's facial! LOL. How appropriate. You do good work, pretty lady!

wvgal_dana said...

Wow just woke from a nap didn't feel good layed down and out.....

Sissy you must get those bees away...the hummers can't eat

Hi Hedgie ( :

Even after swinging bridge was gone. Still good times and good memories.

wvgal_dana said...

Maybe when I seen the hand and blueish cup pour more liquid it they made it too sweet.

wvgal_dana said...

My RP went back down :(

wvgal_dana said...

Refresh acting up now :(

Hope it straightens out soon

NatureNut said...

Happy Hot PM!My Live cam croaked.
Doin' chores around the house, but last evening I saw a house wren going in and out of the empty house where the other family fledged! It was redecorating!!!!---removing some grassy tidbits and nice feathers!Today a pair was busy in "Magnolia Acres". We may have new tenants in the future.At least it wasn't quiet anymore!
I'm bummed that Lisa can't come to PRP on Sat. Was looking fwd to meeting her. Well at least 3 of us on the blog will be there!
Have also been checking the hummer cam & saw more bees and flies than birds!
Later---washer & drier await

wvgal_dana said...

Juvie well was when I started typing at BWE

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Live feed is back up!

Hedgesviller said...

Dearest Momsters...if you have sent me e-mails on Yahoo, please excuse my lack of response! I didn't know that I was getting them until Magpie mentioned it today. I have never used Yahoo mail! So I logged on and see that I have 390 messages....but it won't let me open the Inbox. Argh-h-h! I'll keep trying. But I will also check my AOL address box on my login, and maybe that will direct your e-mails to that address which is what I use!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD AFTERNOON...Thought I'd jump on here while I have the chance. Grandson is elsewhere right now.

It is sooo hot. I picked beans (about a gallon) and watered my pepper plants and lima beans. I am soaked. Love doing this gardening work, but, when I come in, I look like a hurricane swept me up and dropped me off! Seems I sweat so extreamly profusely and it runs into my eyes and I can't see what I am doing. Must have too much sodium in my body. Have to work on that.
ANNE-MARIE...
You have received your FACIAL and photo has been posted. Hope you like the results.

wvgal_dana said...

I went through my emails and see we have been overcome by BlueFins again. We need more Cods!!!!!!!

Costume Lady said...

Dana, I'll have to get Gene to take the FISH TEST and see what he turns out to be....probably and ANGEL FISH. OOOHHH, I am so corny!
I'll try to get him on here after supper.

Hedgesviller said...

Well, that didn't work. It sent all blog comments to my regular e-mail! Oh, well....see what I can find out about yahoo!

Mema Jo said...

Update on DIL from Anne Marie

DIL is out of surgery. Biop showed several tumors were cancer and they have been removed. No nerve damage has been reported. All reactions are normal and she has all movement and feeling in legs and arms. There will be more removed at another date. She is in recovery now. I will go up this weekend to stay with her. Thank you all for your sweet prayers. You are loved and appreciated. Anne.

Mema Jo said...

Thank you Wanda - Anne Marie's NEW
RED DRESS is beautiful!

Mema Jo said...

Hubby & I are getting ready to eat dinner

I'll return........ later

paula eagleholic said...

mt NEST....rp still up!

catch ya'll later!

magpie said...

Bird, our nest.

SCHOOL'S OUT !

Deb said...

We have one in the nest.

Deb said...

Not anymore. Gone.

Deb said...

I am glad you saw it, too, I thought I was seeing things.

magpie said...

I PROMISE YOU, I SAW IT..THEN GONE AGAIN THAT FAST...

magpie said...

DEB - at least we have each other as witnesses....

Deb said...

It was a quick in and out, that's for sure.

MITS said...

thanks, for the update, Jo

magpie said...

Yes, Jo, sounds like the first round for Anne-Marie's Daughter in Law has had some blessings attached to it.
You are a good Momma for keeping us updated, and comforted.

magpie said...

HEDGIE: When I first signed on, I had a box, unchecked somewhere, and the first day I was getting ALL of the Blog commments going to my yahoo email...glad I caught that one in a hurry. For a brief time I thought I was really popular with all those incoming messages! Don't Panic: We can resend important stuff to you...
I just hope your computer didn't get all frozen and funky.

Mema Jo said...

Osprey at Wild Watch cams:
Anne Marie has been watching this nest today .....
13:32:22: I have been watching them and there is one egg she is still sitting on. Dad just came in and took his turn. We may have a new babe yet.
13:39:55: We have a new baby! Mom and dad have been feeding it. It Think its only one but I'm not sure.
14:11:56: so what do you think? do we have one or two?

MITS said...

I still can't really tell Jo??

Costume Lady said...

ANNE-MARIE can't find her FACIAL make-over. Anne, click on my name and then click on Wanda's Wishes for my blog photos. Let me know if you can't find it. I will e-mail it to you.

Costume Lady said...

For those of you who are fairly new to our blog....Anne-Marie went on a cruise to Alaska a while back and we kidded her about wearing a R
ED DRESS. It seems that as we followed her cruise ship, a big red blob turned up on the deck of her ship and we were amazed to see it, thinking it was some sort of Carma having to do with her RED DRESS.

Mema Jo said...

Wanda I copied & sent the Red Dress Pic in an email to Anne Marie.
She has a problem with our blog from her work pc.

Mema Jo said...

Mits: I enlarged the nest pic but I still can't be sure. Wish their site had some comments from authorities on it!

magpie said...

COSTUME LADY: Anne-Marie will be too stunned to type after she sees her "new" self!

And you, hard to imagine you looking like you were swept over by a hurricane, after seeing your double-facial results...we'll just think of that instead. Fresh home-grown Green Beans, you lucky woman you!

I can't wait to see what kind of Fish Captain Eagle is !! Loved your "corny" Angel Fish comment!
xo

magpie said...

DOUBLE-E SHARON: I loved the "swanging bridge" comment. I will think of that now when I go bird-watching there. Ours up here is a special little refuge for me...I forgot to mention I also saw blue birds (HEDGIE: take note) there the other day, how could I forget that? You read that I had a serenading Indigo Bunting while there the other night, eh?

magpie said...

Double-E Sissy: I did see two toucans at the Hummer nest today..no coati yet though. thanks DEB for posting those photos on Yahoo...Way Cool!

Costume Lady said...

THANKS, JO. I never know what is going on with AML...sometimes she can't receive e-mails and other times, she can't blog.
I have posted the photo of the RED DRESS "Ghost"on the deck of her ship for those who don't know what we are talking about. We had so much fun with that subject!

magpie said...

I think it is raining at Loch Garten...the two chicks are struggling to get underneath the Mom...3rd sad little feathered tyke still underneath Momma too....getting dark there now. The site says the chick will most likely be removed from the nest by the Parent, probably in a day or so.

MITS said...

oh yes, the Red Dress, that was freaky:)

Costume Lady said...

Margy, that must be a very theraputic past-time for you. I have never gone over to Back Creek to "Be One With Nature". Thanks for the info; Gene and I will have to try it.

Mema Jo said...

Wild Watch Osprey Cam Update June 2008

Osprey action is intense this year as another osprey has set-up nesting somewhere close to the cam birds and shows up on a regular basis and is promptly chased away. Three eggs were laid in mid-May and will probably hatch close to Independence Day or mid-July. This egg laying is late this year and it will be interesting to watch the osprey young develop over the short summer months.
Maybe they have hatched!

Deb said...

One osprey is on top of the cam, you can see feathers.

Costume Lady said...

Helen, did you get a sun-burn today? I was looking at the photos of those two precious babies and their mom had wide-brimmed hats on them and probably slathered them with spf-40. What teriffic parents they have. I can't imagine taking two little ones to the beach. Takes a lot of patience and care. No wonder you are so fond of your D-I-L.

magpie said...

CUSTOME LADY: And we can still try to make that visit together, with Hedgie too. I am going to watch for the muskrat and Beaver action..early mornings is good for that...and I will see what might be a good time to have a little field trip. Fishing is allowed off the bridge of course, with a license...some catch smallmouth bass, sunfish, bluegills, and someone says they have gotten perch and catfish as well...
Ys, bird-watching there and a few other sites, has been a LIFE-SAVER for me.
xo

Mema Jo said...

Whoa! Deb! I just saw those feathers! Sure does block the view of the egg cup!
Anne Marie said she thought she saw a feeding.

magpie said...

NATURE NUT: Enjoyed your "twinkling lights" tale about the fireflies. Are these also called "lightning bugs" or are there two different insects here. My naturalist friend in New York talks about them too, and at times they seem to "coat and light up the ground in the woods."
Glad to hear your chirpy wrens might be setting up housekeeping again! The pic of your Magnolia is stunning, by the way....

Is it NOT ABOUT TIME FOR SOME MOUNTAINEERS TO SHOW UP AT OUR NEST ????

magpie said...

Birds at Loch Garten are restless..I think they need food and I don't think any has been brought in. Mention on the blog that Father Osprey has a second nest going...

magpie said...

WV GAL DANA: Do I understand that you have been to the Swinging Bridge in our county? Were you visiting, or did you live here for awhile?

magpie said...

I think the Freeloaders are waiting on PAULA!

Costume Lady said...

DANA lives here, Margy. She is "One of Us".

paula eagleholic said...

Howdy, all!

About half way thru the blog from today...busy day at work, didn't watch a thing....guess no visitors today, huh?

Nature - before I forget, since I missed Suz - have a great time at the Osprey banding. I forgot about the aquarium folks attending that also. I heard that last year.

Good new so far on Anne's DIL, hope they got it all.

Gotta go check out her pics and everyone else's.

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, the nest is MT , but it so looks pretty in the early evening sun...nice calm pic at present.

paula eagleholic said...

LOL Magpie!

COME OUT COME OUT WHEREEVER YOU ARE!

ALL THE ALL THE OUTS IN FREE!

Dustin Thomas Shanahan wants to have his turn at the 'puter, so I will turn this mouse and keybord over to him (for now).

Good evening all. I am still in Bedford. Small thunderstorm just passed through. I can't believe the pic on the RP at the moment. It looks so clear! Now if we had the 3 freeloaders in there, it would be even better!
