Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING TO YOU STEVE and thank you.

Costume Lady said...

I can't tell who is in the nest anymore. Sometimes, on the Live Feed, their actions give them away, but on the still cam, don't know.

Costume Lady said...

Steve was also watching our babies...thanks for the photo.

Costume Lady said...

I wonder if Steve ever got his "Wounded House" fixed. I may have missed that news while I was on my trip.

Costume Lady said...

The sun is shining so brightly on the nest, I can't tell if there is food there or not.

Costume Lady said...

I'm wondering how long our Mountaineers will keep coming back to the nest...do the parents run them off or does their instincts tell them that it is time to Leave The Nest?

Costume Lady said...

I think I do recognize Tiny on the right at 3 o'clock. He just has a certain stance that gives him his personality.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Good morning everybody. Just dragging my tired butt out of bed.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Lovely to see these 2 beautiful babes in the nest this morning.

Costume Lady said...

I wonder where everyone is...need to go see if my message of a new thread was seen.

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning, Sharon. Maybe some coffee will help your "Tired Butt". LOL

Costume Lady said...

I haven't had my coffee yet...everyone is still asleep and our coffee maker is so loud it would awaken them, but I can't wait much longer!

Costume Lady said...

The two babies are still in the nest and either eating left-overs or cleaning house.

Costume Lady said...

Oh, as Iris would say, Be Still my Heart...live feed is on. It has probably been on all morning and I just didn't check!

normabyrd said...

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

normabyrd; I just love to sit and
watch them just soar.I take my
lawn chair and sit by the lake and
enjoy the show and they seem not
to mind.In this upside down world
today a person needs a way to get
stress free,and these eagles do it
every time for me.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

Ceil said...

Good morning everyone. Both my live and still are down now. I did see two in the nest this morning.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

My still cam is down now. Anyone else?

Ceil said...

Off to watch Tai and the flamingoe chicks and to do some work. Have a great day.

normabyrd said...

INDIANA DAVE----We don't have that luxury of just sitting & watching!!!----Nothing could be more exciting & relaxing than watching 'your' EAGLES SOAR!!---One of the 1st times we all went to the nest---AND---from the time we arrived---until we left---They put on a show---like you wouldn't believe!!---The only reason we left---it got DARK & we got HUNGRY!!!---That is one DAY I will never forget!!!---(sorry--didn't mean to get so carried away)-----ho!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' CEIL!!---Oh you won't recognize the 'baby' FLAMINGOS!!--they have grown so much!!---(adorable)

Costume Lady said...

Just read Dave's last post about setting up his lawn chair and watching his eagles soar....can you imagine the fun he will have when he retires soon? WHAT A LIFE!

normabyrd said...

YEP!---RP is down---

MITS said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE

MITS said...

I was up late watching Mei, they started the 24/7 pregnancy watch yesterday, so it could be anytime, should be an update on urine samples sometime today

normabyrd said...

WANDA---I think he is retiring 8/29/08----

Well, I was looking for the amen at the end but now I see you have it at the beginning! :) Thanks, our Preaching Meteorologist. We missed you!

MITS said...

tee-hee...fooled ya;)

MITS said...

I'm afraid to unhook my puter and take it back home for such a short time...so once I leave I will be incomunicato:(

normabyrd said...

HEY SISSY!!----Down ATLANTA WAY!!---The BALL is resting in the hammock & 'BUTA BUTA' is sleeping on the floor!!---Isn't she a little BEAUTY!!!----In 'GROWING UP PANDA' --- they state that lots of people don't care much about watching PANDAS---because---all they do is eat & sleep!!---(lazy little devils) ho!!---we love watching them eat & sleep!

MITS said...

But when I am at the zoo tomorrow, if there is any new updates, I will relay them to Ceil, via cellphone

MITS said...

well, I tell people, pandas sleep and eat mot of the time, they are still beautiful to watch, and mostpeople are just happy to see them.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Got the lazy panda thing happening everywhere this morning. Boy, I wish I was a panda.

MITS said...

GORILLA CAM

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mits, yesterday Buta Buta was a wild child, doing gymnastics all over the place and then passed out on her ball and didn't budge for 2 hours. It was the funniest thing.

MITS said...

Sometimes on my shift, I never see them awake.

Hedgie said...

Good morning fowl friends.
Mits, have a good couple of days at home and on watch. Yes, please have Ceil post any updates on Mei!
Wanda, how is Dustin doing?

MITS said...

Lynn, I'm excited to see the animals, have missed them, not a very flattering shot of Mei, just now

normabyrd said...

Had to take car to oldest child!!------Did any PANDAS wake up while I was gone!!---KIDDIN'----They always remind me of my kids when they were small---Would scream they weren't sleepy!---AND then look around---they had fallen asleep in the middle of their SCREAM!!!!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HEDGIE!!---Beautiful morning --- isn't it!!!

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning Eagle Buddies!

I just realized that I had as many osprey cams to check as I do eagles. Sounds like there was early morning activity in our nest.

Looks like pandas are napping at DC
Also down in GA

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO---Checked the burrowing owls earlier!!---lots of them were out!!----6 or 7!!

Mema Jo said...

Morning Norma - There are still a good many of the owls out and about now.

You gave a good description of our flamingo chicks looking like Swans.
They really do except when they start running and darting around under all the adults.

normabyrd said...

I just read interesting info describing how MEI is acting & reacting at this time!!---Not sure until this next test (HELEN was describing earlier)concerning MEI'S pregnancy----It is on the other site I have BOOKMARKED "NZOO PANDAS"!---HELEN OR JO-- could give you the site!!

MITS said...

NZ PANDA INFO PAGE

Mema Jo said...

What time are you headed up the road?

MITS said...

MAN....I don't want to come home...it is beautiful here today, maybe around 1 or 2.

Hedgie said...

Hi Norma and Jo! And Mits, again!
Thought for the day, courtesy of Russell Baker in RD: "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want." How true it is! And would say that Mei fits right in!!

Hedgie said...

No one home in West End nest. No Buddy update yet today.

Mema Jo said...

That thought for the day makes sense to me Hedgie!

Mits: Close all the blinds/curtains in the condo and pretend it is raining! I know the feeling of NOT wanting to come back up the road..

MITS said...

Yes, I should do that, keep going out to sit on balcony

Mema Jo said...

Going to find some lunch

Get Off The Balcony, Helen
Dolphins are not running today!

BBL

MITS said...

your right, they were here yesterday to say goodbye to my company, they didn't want to leave either

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mits, I would never come off of that balcony. Somebody would have to drag me physically!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Hang on, Mits. I will be right there to keep an eye out for the dolphins while you are gone. Do you have my coffee made yet?

MITS said...

its waiting for you, and I have iced tea too

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Helen, I will make the coffee for Sher. Don't you worry about a thing. Leave the key under the doormat.

MITS said...

ROFLMBO..................

normabyrd said...

Thanks HELEN!---

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE!!----That's a WINNER!!---I keep trying to telling every that---but RUSSELL BAKER SAYS IT BEST!!! Must remember!!

normabyrd said...

STORKS in Germany are beautiful this morning!!----They are VERY HEALTHY!!!!

normabyrd said...

WHOA!!!!--MOVIN'JIM!!---Where are you!!!---You always check in by 1:00 pm----Did you over sleep??---OR Did you just go to bed??---ho!--we have missed you!!!
(as we used to say in high school)
JUST CHECKIN'!!!

Hedgie said...

I've got a question about banding....what keeps band from cutting off circulation as the leg grows??? Hmmmmm....... started wondering when watching one of the black storks pecking at his while grooming.
Mits...I'll drink the iced tea when we get there!

movin said...

GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY ~~

Been up awhile, couldn't get it all moving in the right direction; so I decided to go to AOL and say "hi" to Suzanne before it got too late......

But, here I am. Better late than never ... maybe.

Have a great day, eagle lovers.

Jim

movin said...

Hedgie,
I believe they always wait until the birds are nearly grown before banding, and then they make the bands somewhat loose to allow for further growth.

Jim

movin said...

A very good morning, Norma.

Slept a little late, not bad, but I must've been having some tiring dreams. Couldn't get my thoughts organized the way I wanted them for a while.

Maybe I should've made the coffee last night and put it in a Thermos (stainless steel model, made in the U.S.A.).

Smiles to you all day long, Norma.

Jim

normabyrd said...

AFTERNOON--MOVIN'JIM---We know--EXCUSES--EXCUSES!----Just wondered if you weren't feeling well!!--Have a GREAT DAY too!---Time for lunch!!!

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE----Just GOOGLE---"BANDING BIRDS"-----More info than you will ever want!!---ho!!

Mema Jo said...

Jim & All my American Bald Eagle Buddies
Just read in the newspaper that ALL federal agencies can ONLY fly
American Flags that were MADE IN THE USA


Now that's a step forward!

MITS said...

heading back home, talk to you all sometime on Thursday...

movin said...

I read that to Mema Jo. Now if the 50 States would follow suit, we would all be happier campers.

Also I wouldn't hurt for them to publish where citizens can buy American textiles and the products which are made from them.

Personally, I've never had a problem with American made textiles, and like everyone, I bought and bought and bought our textiles; but suddenly they have almost all disappeared from our land.

Jim

movin said...

Have an enjoyable trip, Mits.

Talk to you later.

Hedgie said...

Oh-oh! I credited the thought for the day to the wrong author! It comes from Calvin (as in Calvin & Hobbs)! Mea culpa.

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE---I like that author better!!!!----SO COOL!!

Mema Jo said...

Family member stopped by

BBL

Ceil said...

Just looked in on the flamingoes and a few of the adults are hopping up and down and the chicks are doing the same. So funny.

normabyrd said...

OH CEIL!!---I have been working my tail off here---house stuff!!---I think that is adorable!!---One time when I looked in one of the baby FLAMINGOS was standing on one foot---just like the adults do!!--Haven't they grown!----those little black legs are so cute!!!

Ceil said...

They are adorable Norma. I could not believe how they have grown since I was away. I will be back later have to start dinner.

magpie said...

Well, that's about as pretty as it gets: adult and child in OUR nest.

magpie said...

Wonder how long it will last....

magpie said...

Parent was eating,now eaglet has grabbed the chow..

Mema Jo said...

HOLY SMOLLY
Just finished dinner - company is gone - so I decide I should check out our cam - just in case!

WOW! Adult & juvie in OUR nest

Mema Jo said...

My RP buffered up to 98% and stopped!
Glad our still cam is up!

(I think I misspelled Smolly cause that probably sounds like Molly! I meant SMOLY - sounds like HOLY)

Mema Jo said...

OH NO MR BILL

MY LIVE FEED IS ALIVE & RUNNING

WHOO HOO

Mema Jo said...

Surprises galore tonight

Just pulled up the West End cam &
Both of the girls are in the nest!!

Life is good!

magpie said...

Beautiful graceful take-off, adult.

The Eaglat taloned the food over to 12 o'clock awhile ago and is just sitting on it !

magpie said...

What ? Two adults ?? Am I seeing things ? Yes - I am, it was the adult returning, baby mantled and showed no interest in sharing, and adult flew off again...

Tuesday, July 15, 2008 7:05:00 PM

magpie said...

I'da a left too if I felt I wasn't welcome....

Mema Jo said...

Hi Margie! Hope your work day was a little bit uneventful!

Our little Child is getting a belly full without any competition! That hopefully means that our other 2 are becoming good fisherman!!

magpie said...

Eating alone....that doesn't seem like a whole of fun but I guess it's great for a hungry eaglet...

magpie said...

Yes, Mema - Maybe they are cooling their talons and their bellies in the cool waters of the Potomac...

Work was rocking today, busy all day...

Mema Jo said...

Chimney swift Mom is into the crowded nest hanging on! Off she went.

magpie said...

I haven't even checked the posts yet or any other cams..can't take my eyes off this nest right now..

magpie said...

I think you were Ms. # 100 this evening HOLY SMOLLY....

Mema Jo said...

I guess you're right about the number
I just got carried away when I saw the eagles in the nest and just started to rattle on and on and on...

magpie said...

Did any one see that eaglet talon that fish back to the top of the nest? I'm like that, kinda possessive of something I really like...

magpie said...

MEMA ...I'm the SAME AWAY! Jabber Jabber Jabber..sometimes ten or twelve posts in a row....

I'm happy to be sharing these eagle views with you this evening...

magpie said...

same WAY that is...see how it is? typing too fast I am so excited...

Mema Jo said...

If you go to the BWE page, the link is there for Buddy's daily update.
Sure is looking good for the little guy!
HO HO! Buddy could be a girl-I don't think anyone has checked it out!

magpie said...

We've had this eaglet for at least an hour now...I have a feeling something is about to happen, maybe another visitor, or a fly out...

Mema Jo said...

Margie - Mits came home today because of Zoo Duty tomorrow. Then she'll go back down to OC. She will have Ceil email any update on Mei that she would find out about.

Deb should return tomorrow from Vacation. I hope she can get through the tall grasses to her house!!! And I hope she had a fabulous time with her friends and has brought us some photos!

Mema Jo said...

I'll put my wages on a Fly Out...

Mema Jo said...

Getting my after dinner cup of coffee

BRB


Margie - I don't know what the letters stand for that you usually use when you leave.......??????
Megan used them also the other day.

magpie said...

And your hunch was right little lady, Jo, away Eaglat Goes !

Mema Jo said...

POOF

I win

magpie said...

MDMA; T T F N stands for
Ta Ta For Now...learned it from a sister in law...

Mema Jo said...

Beautiful evening out right now - Are you going bird watching??

magpie said...

I'm sorry MDMA - I meant to type M E M A of course.

xo

Mema Jo said...

I would not have guessed that
The TT to me was the "Talk To"

Here's another question lol

What does MDMA mean....

I think I know
Typo!!! lol

magpie said...

It's tempting but the gas tank is low on fuel....so I think I am going to try to catch up on a few things here....starting with the Daily Blog and all the news from today...

I had some fresh ground Starbucks coffee bean coffee here myself....while eagle-gazing.

Be Back on here in a little bit.

xo

Mema Jo said...

You're great! You can

Answer before Questioned



I just type slower then you think!!

Mema Jo said...

I'll also BBL

Going to enjoy my coffee out on the
deck........

magpie said...

YO! T-Bird thought she was misspelling EAGLAT this morning early....I mentioned that this is what the kids at Norfolk wrote in their letters to BUDDY. Speaking of which: Did you see that Marvelous Dr. BENNETT and his Giraffe Scrubs? Way Cool! And he is from ILLINOIS ~ Same as our JUST VICKY !!

xo lol, yes typo MDMA

magpie said...

Oh My what is that going on in the nest ??? A parent with food !!

Watch out for incomings....

magpie said...

...INCOMING! Parent had some time alone with the food for quite a few minutes....I didn't think that would last so long...I can't tell if it is the same eaglet or a different one...

magpie said...

Wonder what it is...looks like something with bones to me....

magpie said...

I think it was Liberty there the first time, now I think it is Belle..

magpie said...

..Past tense....WAS Belle...

magpie said...

Good bye little one...I think this was a different one from the one an hour ago..this one had that white spot on the right hand wing...

Don't think either one was Baby Littley...

Hedgie said...

Hi Jo and Margy! Great Buddy update...I bet he/she is really happy to be feeling the sun and smelling the fresh air!
Gas leak, huh, Margy?? Was it real or a false alarm?

Mema Jo said...

I missed all that commotion in the nest

I hope Megan had a good day at market and that all those beautiful bouquets are in the DC area homes making people smile!

magpie said...

West End Girls look nice tonight.

Fascinating pics on Buddys update today...He is SO BIG. That poor little beak...nice to hear he is going to be outdoors now...

Hedgie said...

Live feed up, but now MT nest...boo.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Hedgie! I hope you had a good day I didn't accomplish much but I still had a good day!!

magpie said...

Well, keep your peepers peeled, Hedgie...I think there is some food still in OUR nest, and I don't think Tiny has made an appearance yet...

YES - I think it was a real gas leak. When I went past 7-11 Winchester and West King on the way to work, I saw a bunch of what I thought was water near there, thought it might be a water leak. Shortly thereafter Martinsburg Fire Department was there and said it was a Natural Gas Leak.

Delta Eagles look nice, in the sun..peeping a little, nice to hear those Eaglet sounds again...

magpie said...

I'm gettin' computer neck..gotta step away for a little while.

"TTFN"

Hedgie said...

Sure glad no one threw out a cigarette!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Howdy, all.

Hope everyone has had a great Tuesday! My 1/2 day meeting was a whole day meeting. Got treated to lunch and dinner...so not that bad!

I see the live feed is up, but the nest is MT at present!

Going to catch up on all the chatter...

magpie said...

Big Racoon party at PixController and one doe lying down.

One Chicklet lying down at West End too.

It's beginning to give me some ideas about doing the same thing...

magpie said...

Wow - just re-checked West End...eaglet flying up and then down again on the nest....

Hope someone else saw that....

Mema Jo said...

I had been on phone for a little while with family.... Think it is time for me to call it a day. Some things to do before I hit the sack!
Mits emailed that she was home around 6 from the beach.

Good Night Eagle Buddies
Peaceful dreams & restful sleep
Prayers for all our needs being said

magpie said...

Wings a'flappin' at West End. Amazing what can happen in a 5-second refresh...

magpie said...

Beautiful Osprey greeting the daybreak at Ferry Boat Finneys..

paula eagleholic said...

Magpie, I am watching the WE gals flapping away also...

magpie said...

I'm glad Paula; it's nice to have company watching something so beautiful and profound, and a few thousand miles away !

magpie said...

That is one Gnarly Live Feed we have! ! Getting ready to hit the pillow roost soon.
PAULA: trying to email a pic to you...might take a little while to make it through....
if it makes it through at all..
"Time will Tell."

Good Night to you, and All Others...

Take Care, and Rest Well. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of our lives..

xo xo xo

paula eagleholic said...

I'll keep my eye open for it Magpie...sometimes your emails take awhile to get to me...

Hedgie said...

Good night dear friends. Pleasant dreams and blessings on all. Early risers/bloggers...hope your workday goes well!

Costume Lady said...

Here I am again, coming on as everyone is going to bed. I did get a chance to chat to myself this morning. Norma and Sharon did join me after a while, then Sissy dragged herself on here....then I had to go. I have sooo many things going on in my life that I will not have much time to chat...so know that I am not MIA, just tending to my life's joys and sorrows. It is all good!

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS

movin said...

GOOD NIGHT TO EVERYONE..

Have the best week you can remember.

magpie said...

We have a Mountaineer bright and early in the nest right now. Picture is a little fuzzy, live feed also...

T-BIRD: It is an EAGLAT...that's what the kids call them in their letters to Buddy at Norfolk....so you weren't misspelling anything yesterday....just doing what the kids do!
That keeps us young !

I think it's Tiny!

Good Morning Eagle Buds...

xo

magpie said...

I think he is looking for leftovers from last night.

Be back in a short while.
(Getting ready for work)

magpie said...

I leave you one Mountaineer in OUR nest..

Hope your day is as beautiful as the morning here is in Berkeley County, WV.

Watch for the moon and Jupiter to be traveling close together through the night tonight.

Full moon coming! Middle of the night on the 18th.

Best Wishes and Good Safe Day for All.

Off to work.

TTFN xoxox

magpie said...

Eaglat has left for work..

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning all. Sorry i missed ya magpie. Saw a parent and 2 juvies a few minutes ago. Ran the parent off pretty fast.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Fresh thread!!

Tuesday

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...
