MITS said...

SALISBURY — The National Weather Service in Wakefield, Va., is warning of low visibility on the Eastern Shore later this afternoon due to smoke from the Great Dismal Swamp fire being pushed toward the coast.


“Visibility restrictions due to the smoky haze of 1 to 5 miles can be expected across the southeastern mid-Atlantic into the afternoon,” the weather service said.

It said smoke from the Great Dismal Swamp wildfire as well as fires in eastern North Carolina will be pushed toward the Eastern Shore by midday as light southerly winds gradually become southwesterly by late morning.

People with respiratory ailments are advised to remain indoors today and motorists are urged to exercise caution in areas with smoky conditions.

HEY CANDY, PUT OUT THOSE FIRES DOWN THERE:)

Deb said...

Good morning, Wanda, Helen, Norma and Sharon. It is cloudy here this morning, hope the sun comes out soon. Thanks for the video, Paula, it was fun watching it over again.

Deb said...

That was a beautiful take off at 11 o'clock!

Costume Lady said...

CANDY, after you get the fires put out, check out your AFTER FACIAL PHOTO.

Deb said...

Wanda, great job on the facial photos!

MITS said...

Man, Candy is going to be one hot Mother of the Groom

Lolly said...

Good morning all! Sound like all are up and feeling their oats this morning!

Paula, loved the video!!!! Attack of the giant spider! And, it was great to see Tiny enjoy his meal.

Mits, do not think Candy can put out fires. According to the picture of her after her latest facial....her specialty is starting fires of a different nature. LOL

Mits...so envious of your stay at the ocean. We are heading to south Padre Island early August. Taking Laurel and the boys down. Michael and family may join us as well. Wahoo!! Love nothing better that the sound of the waves!

Hey, Wanda....you are a good grandmother!!Joseph and Jacob both get on my computer.

Accidentally earned my 4th facial last night, didn't even realize it. And, I haven't even done the third yet.

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning everyone..
Happy to see all of you and will need to go to earlier comments to see what all is going on!
Wanda - super job on the facial pics
Paula - great video

Just finished talking (& seeing) everyone over in Germany. Love the
technology of this age!

MITS said...

wait til Candy's husband sees the new Candy, Lolly.

Deb said...

Jo, it is great that you can visit with them and see them at the same time. It makes living on the other side of the globe a little easier.

Lolly said...

Yeah, when Candy's jubby sees her...yet another Florida fire will be started!

Flamingo cam operator has zoomed in on a baby. So cute! And, so very wobbly!

Lolly said...

Morning Jo! Fantastic that you got to talk to Germany. Great way to start the day. So, how is the newest member of the family? Probably sleeping all the time right now.

Lolly said...

It is a wonder any flamingos survive past infancy as often as the mothers step on them!

movin said...

GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY.

Paula, it looks like the one eaglet was after Spidey in your video.

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good Morning all you great eagle
watchers.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

MITS said...

morning, Dave.

Mema Jo said...

Morning Dave - I just recently looked at the Cayuga eagle days 2008 pictures. America & the Golden eagle are something else for the eyes to behold. Fantastic!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning to ALL ( :

Great video !!!

Mema Jo said...

The Otter Brothers are out sunning themselves!
Can't find any others out and about on the Asia Trail.
Going to the Flamingos........

Mema Jo said...

Beautiful little chick
Close up WOW
Chicks have large webbed feet!
I wonder when their neck starts
stretching out?
I remember the herons had their necks

Mema Jo said...

This has been a pretty long time that the chick has been in close up view. Very interesting to watch - I'll be glad to see some more chicks up & about like this one. Cutest thing is when the chick stands up and stretches out its chubby looking legs

OK Lunch time here

Red said...

I'm thinking I need one of those facials. lol

Deb said...

Me, too, Red. I am half way done in the backyard and I am dripping. Darn humidity is bad today.

Red said...

I'll be dripping tomorrow. Gotta weedeat around 65 trees and mow 4 acres of yard.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

did anyone else see the toucan (i think) on the Puro hummingbird feeder?

Red said...

Sorry Sissy, I wasn't watching.

magpie said...

Oh, Woody Fans, there is another duck on eggs on the CamClickers site, Greenville, Texas. No information posted yet about it that I could find except there is a new round of incubating going on..

I can't open up CHRISSYS HUMMERS today, anyone else having problems? Did fine yesterday, now says I have to install Active X..Grrrrrrrr

Ct Ospreys, such a close-up cam, and so beautiful, the colors and all.

Empty Mountaineer Nest...

Did any chicks at Flamingo site get lost? I see a little whitish thing in the bottom of one of the dirt ditches...not what I am thinking I hope.

Good Afternoon, All....

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

magpie, I had to install the active X thing but it was no problem. I think what I had been watching before was a recording. This is so cool. They are some busy little critters.

magpie said...

Okay Double E Sissy, I will do that. Have to shut everything down 'cause the computer will need to restart...time for another nap for me anyway.

The Wood Duck nest is a different nest, 13 eggs were in there on May 30 - incubation takes about 30 days, so maybe by next week, we will be all ga-ga with hatching again. I just checked some of the Forum comments...

magpie said...

Double-E Sissy, that was a great tip! It went "just like that!" and the computer did not have to restart....

Now, back to snoozing for a bit.

COSTUME LADY: I am going to China City Buffet tonight, meeting a gal pal dispatcher from Loudoun County, and cashing in on an almost-one-year old gift certificate....
YUMM ...some crab I hope....

magpie said...

Everything is all PINK at Over the Water Finland...sunrise or sunset I guess.... the other Finney nest is still not working, but it looks like some progress is being made...will be interesting to see how much the chicks have grown in a week.

Nighty-afternoon-Night.

xo

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

looks like an anteater or something on the hummer feeder. How cool is this!!

Deb said...

If you want to see where the chimney swifts are living, go to this page:

Chimney Swifts

paula eagleholic said...

Is RP down for anyone else?

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Yes ma'am, RP is down!

Deb said...

Mine is back up!

wvgal_dana said...

Magpie I think China City only serves crab legs Fri, Sat not sure about Sun.

Lolly said...

Hi all! Was afraid to get on....been working in the yard. Hope I don't offend you!! LOL

Deb, is the chimney swift cam always so dark? Just went to it for the first time. Quite impressive the tower they built.

wvgal_dana said...

Great information on flamingo chicks
http://www.seaworld.org/infobooks/
Flamingos/home.html

wvgal_dana said...

Sniff sniff Lolly I can't smell a thing lol

Deb said...

Lolly, there are two different cams, this view is dark the other is a lot lighter.

Deb said...

Finney's nest camera is broken and they have to install a new one. If you go to their site, though they have a photo gallery. You can see the three chicks in the first picture.

Three chicks

Lolly said...

Oh, thank goodness! Sure do not want to offend anyone. Really need to go shower.

wvgal_dana said...

wvgal_dana said...

RP back up for me too

Costume Lady said...

Just back from visiting my Mom.
Margy.....No crab legs tonight!!
Only on Friday and Saturday. Other food is very good also.

magpie said...

Thanks everyone for passing on all the cool sites: My "favorites" is growing by leaps and bounds, or would it be "feathers and beaks."

Great Photo of the Finney Chicks. DEB - Thanks for keeping us posted. Hadn't seen the 3rd chick yet.

COSTUME LADY: Figured that might be the case....I have a feeling I will stuff myself regardless.

Momma Wood Duck is off the eggs at CamClickers.....

magpie said...

Double E-Sissy - I did not get sound back at the Hummer site...that is half the fun. Might have to try something else, or again.

It's about time for the afternoon arrival of eaglets, is it not?

I don't have live feed.

magpie said...

Double-E Sissy, I think the Anteater thing is a "Coati" - their is a link to a short video on it, and the Toucan, on the main open-up page for the Hummers...

magpie said...

Beautiful view of the water in the background at Scottish Wildlife Trust cam, just Solo there now. Just about evening there....think of Chrissy and Frank when you view this one, I think it is one of Chrissy's favorites!

magpie said...

Isla just glided over the water, then landed in the nest with chow...Isla is happy...nestovers and moving sticks.

magpie said...

And A Poop Shoot, maybe Momma Isla brought in a peat ball, no one is eating yet....

magpie said...

Fort St Vrain looks empty this evening, but those early morning photo pics....5 am and 7 am show both birds in the nest....

(Can anyone tell I am taking a little trip around the world?)

magpie said...

Things are looking pretty empty in Harrisburg, but lots of trains and traffic going by!

magpie said...

Barton Cove Chick looks so lonesome.

DEB - Nice thing about the slide show on the Finney nest, is that two adults are in just about every one...and a nice snow shot....

magpie said...

Falcons on the ledge, looks like adult, at the nest box. Harrisburg.

magpie said...

..and a youngster at the far end of the ledge too....Harrisburg.

Time for an Eagle OUR Nest...oh, birdies, where are you, still in SCHOOL ?

magpie said...

I see we have a MOUNTAINEER OUR NEST...

Mema Jo said...

School's Out

Now you can be a happy nester, Magpie

magpie said...

Oh, yes, Mema Jo...and where there is one, there might be more !
As NORMA would say: HO !


I've been watching for ferry boats for you...

magpie said...

Oh no....he is at the launch pad...don't leave yet....

Mema Jo said...

I just made certain that the RP was
NOT UP! Still cam is all static at times!

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

magpie said...

Funny, it seems when that an eaglet arrives, the Cam gets all excited just as we do.....
I'm waiting on Live Feed too...

magpie said...

Barton Cove parent brought food in, and now baby must be hanging over the side of the nest of branching, cannot see it...

magpie said...

P O O F !!!

gone, snuck out during the "rainbow""

paula eagleholic said...

Evening, eagle friends!

How is everyone on this fine summer evening?

Pretty quiet at our nest today.

Guess our RP is down for the evening..I'll be checking it as I know many of you will also.

MITS said...

my rain forest hummer nest, does not have sound anymore, and only refreshing every few seconds....Hey Paula, no RP here:(

Hedgesviller said...

@Good evening fowl buddies! Been lurking some today, but also busy cleaning out drawers and closets. Also tried to replicate Wanda's seafood pasta salad...invited my daughter to stop after work for a light supper...and she forgot to stop! Doesn't that beat all?
Paula...talon byte neat...looked like x-ray image!

magpie said...

Awww, both are laying in the nest now,,,facing opposite directions

Deb said...

Eaglet at BWE, also.

paula eagleholic said...

Alright!

MITS said...

dose my heart good to see the BWE juvie:)

paula eagleholic said...

Ha Ha Hedgie - Just saw your "fowl buddies". I like that!

Deb said...

I wish it would refresh with its head up! Whatever it is eating must be tasty.

paula eagleholic said...

I saw one a couple of days ago, too. Glad they are doing well, also!

paula eagleholic said...

Never fails, does it Deb.

paula eagleholic said...

Where's the turtle shell at BWE...is it right by the juvie?

paula eagleholic said...

There's a partial for ya, Deb.

Deb said...

I saw a head for one refresh!

Deb said...

Now you can see the shell. I rescued a little turtle from the middle of the road today. I took its picture before I moved him to the ditch.

MITS said...

could be, Paula...

paula eagleholic said...

Gotta go feed my pesty puppies.

MITS said...

wonder if the BWE eagles eat Chesapeake Blue Crabs:)yummy

paula eagleholic said...

I see it now....the bottom...it's white. Look to the left of it just a tad...check out the bone that looks like a butterfly...

Deb said...

Two juvies in OK.

Deb said...

I went to check on the flood waters today and found a corn field full of pelicans. I assumed that whatever was behind the pelicans was debris caught in a fence. WRONG! I was too far away to know for sure, but I think they are herons,

MITS said...

oh no Deb, :(

paula eagleholic said...

Awww, still 2 eaglets...one w/ cute leg and talons sticking out...

Taking the dogs for a walk...BBIALW

Deb said...

I just blew th e picture up and they are herons. I thought they might be brown pelicans,too, but now I can see the beak. I will have to go back tomorrow and focus on the debris--HA. I will put the picture on my page in a little while.

MITS said...

those doggies lead a charmed life, Paula

MITS said...

the juvies are at OK

Hedgesviller said...

Would anybody get the idea that we momsters love crab???? We are always mentioning it! Mmm...mmm good!

Hedgesviller said...

Paula--glad you liked my little pun.

MITS said...

living in this area, Hedgie, it is in our blood

MITS said...

we love your "fowl" humor Hedgie:)

MITS said...

I can hear people talking under the Delta nest....boy it is noisy there.

Deb said...

My pictures are on there, tomorrow I will try and get some better ones.

MITS said...

Deb, are they stuck in the fence?

Anne-Marie said...

Hi gang, just wanted to get to you before you all turn in for the night. Its still hot and smoky here. I had to have my headlights on coming home. Nasty.

Anne-Marie said...

Anne-Marie said...

Anne-Marie said...

Twice as good, :)

Anne-Marie said...

speaking of crab. Jo said that she has a special way of fixing crab cakes and I want to learn how.

Deb said...

NO, they were standing by the fence, but from where I was I thought it was junk that had gotten caught in the fence. It wasn't until I brought it up on my computer that I realized they were birds and not junk.
I thought it was corn stalks.

Deb said...

I wondered why you said, Oh, no. I was excited.

Anne-Marie said...

Where are the pictures
Deb?

wvgal_dana said...

Hedgie want to come here an get a worry wart of a groundhog???

Anne-Marie said...

Paula love your sinshine. Now if I could figure out how to change mine I would.

Deb said...

wvgal_dana said...

This groundhog has been last 4 yrs. 2 yards over. He has decided to dig under our fence both sides. Don't want our doggie running after him and going under fence.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb said...

Anne-Marie said...

Hi Paula I have my eagle deceration you gave me on my wall right by my computer. I would like to buy the picture of the barn and tree at sunset for a donation . Is that doable. I have it as a screensaver but I would like to contribute.

Anne-Marie said...

Anne-Marie said...

spell check would help..:)

paula eagleholic said...

Both eaglets at the West End nest are Females!

And K83, aka Star, from the TH nest, has been detected by a moving radio signal, so all is well!

paula eagleholic said...

Anne, so sorry for the not so good news about your DIL. We will keep her in our thoughts and prayers.

Anne-Marie said...

Fantastic!

Deb said...

The Delta eaglets announced the parent, but no food. Parent gone already.

Ceil said...

Dana as Mits said my son lives in Oregon. He moved there from San Francisco in February. Anne-marie he lives in Forest Grove. I will be looking for eagles all the way. The Oregon nest is 188 miles from him. Don't think I will be going there. I will keep in touch with Mits and let everyone know where we are. Where's Jo tonight? Saying good bye for a while.

Deb said...

Anne, I am so sorry to hear about your daughter-in-law. She will be in my prayers.

Anne-Marie said...

Paula I am taking big breaths right now. Everything goes so well in our family as it does in all familys and then something hits. this is that time and we take it with prayer and faith.

Ceil said...

Prayers for your dil, Anne-marie.

Anne-Marie said...

Guess I had better grab something to eat so I wont get sick. bbl

Anne-Marie said...

Ceil, Hugs.....

Ceil said...

The waiting to hear news is difficult.

Deb said...

Have a good time, Ceil. Drive safe.

magpie said...

ANNE-MARIE: I liked what you said:

You like Paula's SINSHINE...

(SEE YOUR POST AT 8:27 PM)

(Does that say something about me?)

So Good to See Your Name on the Page ! Prayers on the Wing,

Anne-Marie said...

MITS said...

I would be lost without my Goggle toolbar and its spellcheck

wvgal_dana said...

Anne prayers for your DIL


Magpie lol I missed that...you know what they say about spelling. You get some of the word right and people just read it as the right word. lol

Hedgesviller said...

Mits...no offense to CarolinaBeachMom, but... one time at Ocracoke, after a bad storm, there was a big sand bar right off the beach and it was FULL of crabs...everyone caught and ate crabs that day, but they just couldn't compare to Chesapeake Blues!

magpie said...

THAT SINSHINE AVATAR JUST BLINDS OUR SIGHT A LTTLE...

DEB - LIKE YOUR PELICAN AND HERON PICTURES, AND THE TURTLE. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN "VERMILLION" FLYCATCHERS THERE...LIKE SCARLET TANAGERS WITH A ZORRO MASK. GOOD PHOTOS ON GOOGLE OF COURSE.

Best of Evenings to all, and we are with you in thought and spirit ANNE-MARIE, and with all with health and safety needs....save travels for all hitting the roads tomorrow.

paula eagleholic said...

I thought Megan had the evil Sinshine! :)

Ceil said...

Thanks for the safe trip messages. I have to finish packing and hit the hay. Looking forward to the trip but don't want to leave the computer and you guys. Need a laptop.

Anne-Marie said...

grabbed a bite,you guys are the best.

Anne-Marie said...

I have never seen fireflys. You guys talk about them.

MITS said...

I hear ya, Hedgie, I grew up on the blue crab with the old bay seasoning, but I love stone crabs from Fla, and dungeness crabs from San Francisco, but my fav is the blue crab:)

Hedgesviller said...

Dana--what's up with the groundhog? Eating your garden? That's one thing I DON'T have here, thank goodness!

MITS said...

:( going to miss you my sister, keep in touch as you travel, so I can keep the momsters informed

Anne-Marie said...

magpie, Paula is always sunshine

paula eagleholic said...

Ceil - hope you have a great trip. I'm sure you'll feel better tomorrow!

Blue crabs rule just like Blue Fin Tuna's!! :):)

MITS said...

tee-hee:)

Anne-Marie said...

Hurray for Tuna!

paula eagleholic said...

Why, thank you Anne!

Anne, you have to come in the summer to see the lightening bugs (fireflys). I'll try to get some pics for you, if I can, when they start to come out. I haven't seen any yet.

Anne-Marie said...

Never had blue crab either..

Anne-Marie said...

Paula how long do they stay?

MITS said...

I had some for lunch today

MITS said...

Anne-Marie said...

Been all over the place but never seen fireflies or blue crab. I'm deprived. :(

Anne-Marie said...

Mits, blue crab or fireflies? :)
