Good morning Sissy and red, I am running late this morning. Stopping in to say everyone have a great day and especially Vicky and Gee Gee. Happy Birthday to you both.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning Ceil and Red!! Looks like a beautiful day here in the big city of Bluefield.

glo said...

Good Morning all. Happy Birthday Vicky...How Wise are you now? I am off for coffee and dog treats after I feed some birds, squirrels and chipmunks LOL. I get to go to work for a couple of hours this morning. Speaking of which it stormed last night while I was working right at suppertime. I was not at all feeling cool inside when those lights flickered but all was well enough. Just hot and humid now today.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Tom was just on the deck dodging hummers. They are really thick out here the past few days, more than normal.

Red said...

Here is a photo of hummers at my feeder a couple of years ago in September

Hummers

Red said...

They are probably your hummers going south for the winter.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh my gosh, Red. That is beautiful. I don't think we have ever had that many on one feeder at one time. I have several all over the place out here.

MITS said...

GOOD WEDNESDAY A.M.

MITS said...

Mei, is restless this a.m.

Red said...

It looks dark in that photo but it was just after sunset and I guess they were filling up for the night.

MITS said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GEE-GEE, AND JUST VICKY:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning, Helen!! She is very restless this morning, can't find her comfort spot.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She is hiding behind the bamboo she has shredded.

MITS said...

when I turned it on about 20 mins ago, she was in outer den drinking water

paula eagleholic said...

WOW - HOW DID WE GET SOUND!!

MITS said...

ok, she found a nice spot

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Now she is across the block, bless her heart. Sharon just brought me breakfast, what a sister!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Is that Tai in the grotto? (reckon that is what that is called).

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY COMMODE TOWN VICKY,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

AND MANY, MANY, MANY MORE!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning everybody. I didn't get up until 8 and then had to take Andrew so he can instruct the Beaver drumline today! Getting ready to start work now! Have a wonderful day everybody!

Mits, who is Gee-Gee?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I can't get a picture worth a hoot on the still cam or the live feed.

MITS said...

Wanda's Mom is Gee Gee.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh well, Happy Birthday Gee-Gee. We love your daughter!!

paula eagleholic said...

I know Bev, sound and lousy pic! Maybe that's why the sound has been off! Or it decided to miraculously work!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR GEE-GEE (AKA WANDA'S LOVELY MOTHER)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

AND MANY, MANY, MANY MORE!!

glo said...

Having some breakfast and getting ready to head into work for a little bit. I have turned up my sound. I would love to hear one of our eagle/ets this morning before I leave..not sure that is going to happen though.

glo said...

Oh Oh think I broke it..one person too many signed in to listen. I guess i will turn it back off. :(

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...
Red, I could only dream of having that many hummers in my yard. They look like a different species from what we have up here.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO VICKY...SHE IS 39 TODAY, JUST LIKE THE REST OF US. LOL

MITS said...

FYI....the zoo is ready for twin cubs , if that should happen. They have a lacrosse stick, so they can retrieve the cubs and change off daily or every other day, unless a mom rejects a cub, they are NOT raised by staff in captivity...on rare occasions a Panda can rear twins. Pandas do have twins in the wild, but they are less likely to survive. So the zoo is ready to go in any situation.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Wanda, who you calling 39?? I am 29! :)

I had 2 vivid dreams last night and Wanda, Gene, Sissy, Tom, Mattie and Andrew were in one of them. We were heading somewhere (I think in Greenbrier County) and we had packed stuff in vehicles and there was not enough drivers for all the vehicles, so Sissy, Andrew, Tom and me had to walk and leave the vehicles. Who knows????

paula eagleholic said...

MY RP went down also....OMG it's back up w/ music???

MITS said...

Sissy, from the looks of that grotto, and the fact I saw Tai for a brief moment in the other yard walking around, think that is Tian's butt you see;)

paula eagleholic said...

LOL sounds like reggae!

paula eagleholic said...

LOL going back down...lets see what we get this time...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

OMG Paula. The eagles ARE jammin' to some reggae.

MITS said...

OMG, it sounds like Bob Marley, maybe the eagles went to Jamaica

MITS said...

ROFLMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

paula eagleholic said...

Anyone else have reggae music??

paula eagleholic said...

I guess that's a yes!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Oh wow, this is too good! Love the music!

MITS said...

I LOVE BOB MARLEY, COULD BE HIS SON ZIGGY, THEY SOUND SO MUCH ALIKE

paula eagleholic said...

Now all we need are some eagles!!

paula eagleholic said...

Maybe they are jammin' above the nest!

MITS said...

probably sipping on Red Stripe as we speak.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

WE BE JAMMIN'!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good clear picture now, though.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Now all we need are 5 eagles with their heads bobbin' up and down!!

Hedgie said...

Morning all.
A big Happy Birthday to Vicki and to GeeGee! Hope you have a great day!

Floralgirl said...

What in the world is going on??The eagles nest is listening to Bob Marley?

MITS said...

lol, Sissy, what a sight that would be...:)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Now that would be a sight and sound I don't think any of us would live through! :)

Hedgie said...

Sharon...go back to yesterday blog and look for late message I sent you!!

MITS said...

I e-mailed , Steve to thank him this a.m.'s concert from the nest

Hedgie said...

Hey, I've got sound, too!! Steve...ask them to play "Ain't no sunshine when you're gone" for our eagles!!

Floralgirl said...

I hope those eagles are not indulging in other Jamaican pleasures. I don't see smkoke coming from above the tree..

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Hedgie, about the pandas? I read that last night and set my DVR to record at midnight. Thank you so much!

MITS said...

ha, a little ganja, would make them mellow

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yeah, Megan, we may need to do a drug test on them!! I can see em now in there dreadlocks.

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good Morning everyone,Today is
another great day to be alive.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

Floralgirl said...

OK, pardon my rudeness, tired and not feeling well, didn't mean to barge in here without saying HELLO to everyone! oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY VICKY!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mits, I had to look that word up and I am an old hippie from way back!!

paula eagleholic said...

LOL I sent Steve an email also....

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I don't know, Pecking Pearl might get a little more peckier with the munchies!

MITS said...

its the wacky weed, Sissy;)

paula eagleholic said...

LOL I looked it up too. Figured that's what she was talking about!!

MITS said...

ROFLMBO.....SHARON:):):):)

paula eagleholic said...

There they'll be, stuffing twinkies and doritos in their faces!

Hedgie said...

GOod, Sharon! The panda segment is about 40 minutes into the show!

MITS said...

This is hysterical........:)

Floralgirl said...

When I watch the cam right now, I think I must be smoking something, the picture is crazy.

paula eagleholic said...

Hedgie said...

I didn't know what Red Stripe meant, either!! I was a teen of the 60's, but not into that stuff!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

That is right - or Munchos and Hershey Bars!

MITS said...

Red Stripe is their beer, ganja, is there drug of choice:)I've been to Jamaica, just rum punch for me, and their wonderful jerk chicken

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mountain Dew and Doritos.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I so love our group!! We have such a good time on here!

MITS said...

Ziggy Marley was in Baltimore over this past weekend..

MITS said...

maybe, Steve wanted us to mellow out...no problem, mon

Floralgirl said...

Pass the dutchie...

MITS said...

well, at lest Mei is mellow;)

MITS said...

music really makes me want to "get up and get down":)

MITS said...

can just see them all dancing up at NCTC now...

MITS said...

sounds like we have looped around to the beginning song

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I am going to have to find a rainbow colored tam and type with it.

Mema Jo said...

WHOO HOO!
GOOD MUSIC MORNING!
Who do you think is the DJ? Let us know when Steve replys! Meanwhile I'll just sit here bopping with the beat.

Mema Jo said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY "JUST VICKY"
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Who's on first - It's your day!
Enjoy

Floralgirl said...

OK, yeah, this music is on a loop- are they taking requests, I need something more peppy- too early in the day to be too mellow. I'm gonna end up in a lawn chair in the shade with a beer...

MITS said...

Megan, you crack me up...take the rest of the day off....how was market yesterday?

MITS said...

I have been trying to find out the names of the songs, looking under Ziggy Marley....I don't remember Bob singing these.

Hedgie said...

Helen, is Ziggy Bob's son??

Floralgirl said...

Market was a little slow, people traffic down from the week before.

paula eagleholic said...

I tried to get RP to show us the name of the album...but it says there is no info for this album

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, says the audio is coming from the nest...

paula eagleholic said...

Yes, Hedgie

MITS said...

yes, Lynn, he is, Bob Marley died of a brain tumor on May 11th, 1981, same day my Dad died...bet Dad was jammin when he got to heaven:)

MITS said...

so that is where the juvies have been, went to Best Buy and got a stereo system

MITS said...

Megan, like I told you before...DC is a ghost town in August...all the hot ait leaves town;)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mits, that is what I was thinking. All this time we been worrying about em and they have been out shopping!!

MITS said...

e-mailed Suzanne about the nest, she said the juvies must be having an end of summer school party

MITS said...

that's hot air leaves DC

Floralgirl said...

-the what?? hot ait -typo or are you smoking?? lol...I am thinking of bailing in August- if my sales go down I can't justify the drive..

MITS said...

Belle and Lib are going to be unhappy when they see the credit card bill

Mema Jo said...

I wonder who went up the tree and left their boom box?

Floralgirl said...

Aha! thanks- the hot air may have left, but the crazies are still there!!

Hedgie said...

Helen, I bet you are right. What a sight that would be to behold. Bet God was even dancing!

Floralgirl said...

Maybe they snagged an mp3 player someone dropped down by the river.

MITS said...

BUSTED....MEGAN::)

MITS said...

Test it out next Tuesday, Megan

MITS said...

wish I had some Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee

Floralgirl said...

Yeah, I'm giving it a chance, but if my sales keep going down, I will have a hard time justifying time and the gas money to get there.

Mema Jo said...

Maybe one of the "Paddlers" dropped it out of the kayak and Liberty thought he would bring it home to the nest not knowing what he snagged!

Mema Jo said...

It is hair cut day for me

BBL

IrisF said...

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY VICKY
AND MANY, MANY MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great day and enjoy yourself!
And remember, Birthdays are more precious the more we have!

Hedgie said...

There was a restaurant near my mom's when she lived in FL called Conchy Joe's that had live reggae every night...it is just such an appropriate genre for tropical settings!

MITS said...

I agree, Megan, what about the fall?

MITS said...

I like reggae music anywhere;)

Floralgirl said...

That mkt. goes until sometime in early Sept. I believe- I will start working my other job running field trips at the end of Sept. thru Oct.

IrisF said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WANDA's MOM -
GEE-GEE HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!

MITS said...

getting into your really busy season, Megan, even more busy than you are now....how is your daughters' hand doing?

glo said...

I am lurking from work on a slow dinosaur computer but this BLOG is worth responding too.

paula eagleholic said...
LOL, says the audio is coming from the nest...


Sounds like we have a pretty special and talented family of Eagles...well we already knew that !!! LOL Enjoy

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

The name of the song playing now is Roots Rock Reggae by Bob Marley!

Floralgirl said...

That song was roots, rock, reggae, definitely Bob Marley.

MITS said...

thank you, Sharon

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, at least the one that just played!

MITS said...

wish they would play some of his more familiar songs.

MITS said...

yep, Bob Marley for sure, just saw the lyrics for the last song, Johnny Was

Floralgirl said...

Yes, I request-"Three Little Birds". Daughter's hand is good. She has been at my SIL's house for week and a half-going to computer game design camp with my nephews, she is enjoying it, but starting to get homesick, we will pick her up this weekend.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Cry to me - Bob Marley!

MITS said...

Sharon and Megan, just sent you e-mail, with the link to BM's lyrics

glo said...

Can't you just picture Pecky Pearl struttin around and boppin her head to the beat. Tiny and Middley jammin on thier favorite spots of the nest.

OK I seriously need to get back to work BUT I am listening.

MITS said...

so happy she is doing well, Megan. Is she looking forward to school this year?

MITS said...

we can sing along...

Floralgirl said...

Our only issue with school this year is that it starts so early- Agust 20. My husband's family is going to Myrtle beach that week, and she can't join them due to school. Makes no sense to me to start on a Weds. and I wish they would go back to starting after Labor Day. She had a great freshman year, and hopefully this year will be good too. I am thankful every day thet we got such a great Dr to fix her hand- except fior the small scars, you could never tell it happened.

Floralgirl said...

LOL... that is the lyric site I was looking at.. has some annoying ads though.

MITS said...

that is un-American, hate it when they start that early, but it does make the beach more quiet...yes, you were lucky to find such a good doctor, ah, not the lowly freshman anymore

MITS said...

yeah, Megan sometimes the annoying voice comes on, and sometimes it doesn't

Floralgirl said...

It scared me the first time it started talking...

Just Vicky said...

Thank you eagle land for all the birthday wishes! This is being the best birthday of my life! MTBR

MITS said...

I know, thought it was coming from the nest

MITS said...

speaking of the nest, it is a mess

MITS said...

still cam is good

MITS said...

July 29

We have analyzed a urine sample collected from an overnight excretion and another collected this morning. The mean progestin value for those two samples was about 88 ng/mg Cr., up from the mean progestin value from yesterday’s samples (54 ng/mg Cr).

An increase in progestins as the luteal phase comes to an end is not uncommon. However, it does make for a bumpy ride. The duration of the secondary rise is still well within the known durations for secondary rises for giant pandas and everything still looks fine.

WAITING FOR TODAY'S RESULTS FROM YESTERDAY, HOPE THEY GOT SOME GOOD SAMPLES

Floralgirl said...

The worst part is I just paid the last bill for her accident- dr.s office sent it to collections since it had not been paid- insurance company should have covered it- but it kept getting rejected and the drs office claims they sent me numerous bills, yet I never recieved them- so I give up and I just paid it- tired of the endless phone calls and don't need that on my credit report..annoying. going to get some thing accomplished- later- stay away from the bongs... sorry- couldn't resisit..

MITS said...

insurance did not pay for the tummy-tuck part of my hernia operation, even though the plastic surgeon wrote to them saying it was the only way it could have been done, and with the 5 hernias they found it, was they only way, hubby is not going to fight it

MITS said...

turned off the live cam, because it was nothing but static pic, when turned it back on got no pic, just music

paula eagleholic said...

Mine is frozen as well....

paula eagleholic said...

I have Bob Marley and no pic...will send Steve an email...

MITS said...

they are probably all stoned up there:)....just kidding!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I just love how insurance companies dictate our medical care.

paula eagleholic said...

Got that CD on repeat....

MITS said...

yeah, I know, Sissy, but you can't fight citty hall:(

MITS said...

that should be city hall, not citty....must be getting second hand smoke from the nest

MITS said...

MORE URINE INFO....
Another two samples were available for analysis today. The progestin concentration for the sample excreted yesterday morning was about 41 ng/mg Cr. The sample from yesterday afternoon had a progestin concentration of 67 ng/mg Cr., providing a mean progestin concentration of 54 ng/mg Cr.

This overall value is lower than previous day’s progestin values, but still significantly higher than baseline concentrations. The luteal phase continues, and we are kept guessing when it will end.

MITS said...

I believe it will all end sooner ,rather than later, but what do I know???? The experts are scratching their collective heads.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Wonder what is up at Atlanta. Haven't seen Buta or anyone for a while, just empty room.

MITS said...

I notice that too, Sissy

MITS said...

I know they don't have volunteers manning the cams there, just the keepers when they get a chance to focus cam on pandas. So they may be busy elsewhere, no Wednesday update yet either

MITS said...

well it is another foggy, hazy day here at the beach, can barely see the ocean

paula eagleholic said...

Delta Dawn has fledged! Not too far, but has flown on her own...no slipping this time!

MITS said...

good for her:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Don't they know how important it is that we get to watch? They act like there jobs are more important than our needs. What is that about?? :)

paula eagleholic said...

Hey, the live feed is reset...Bob is still jammin'!!

paula eagleholic said...

Hey, Steve...are ya'll having a picnic or something? :):)

paula eagleholic said...

I can bring some rum! Have all sorts of flavors...

Hedgie said...

No RP now....still cam a mess!
Just saw a squirrel do a back flip off the corn feeder...funny! Also have two wrens who must be getting ready for a second brooding...gathering nest materials and "flirting" w/ each other!

MITS said...

well at least the tape is changed with some of his oldies, but goodies:)

MITS said...

Could you be love, is playing now

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

There's Buta!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I bet the people at NCTC are having a ball reading our comments on here. WE LOVE THE REGGAE!! THANKS!

MITS said...

Megan, they are playing your song now...Three Little Birds

Mema Jo said...

I haven't seen our Biker Chic on the streets of Sturgis yet! There is a lot of movement in the city.

http://webcams.sturgisbikeweek.com/

MITS said...

look at the way Tai is sleeping, cam 2, hurts my legs

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

no more tuneage!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I know, Helen. Sometimes they look so comfortable and others I don't know how they stand it. (wish i was a panda)

Mema Jo said...

Off to do errand at the Post Office........
Really Really Hot out there today.

BBL

MITS said...

darn live cam and music went down

Bob Quinn said...

If anyone is interested the voting results from yesterday are (including my wife):

1 - 12 votes
2 - 4
3 - 4
4 - 3
5 - 10
6 - 2
7 - 6

The bad news is I looked at the originals last night and #5 is slightly out of focus and I may not be able to use it.

MITS said...

bummer....

MITS said...

bummer again, Bob

paula eagleholic said...

Double Bob bummer!

MITS said...

well still hazy here, not really worth going to beach or deck, so will head out and get gas in car, keep forgetting to do that, and maybe do some shopping.....someone very special has a birthday soon;)

NatureNut said...

Hoppy Wednesday---We be not workin' too much!!!
Lurking at work---can't get cams & no sound either..only jammin' in our minds! Maybe I can find a tape or CD around here.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Vicky & Gee Gee!!!!

Bob, are you allowed to run pics thru Photo programs to adjust focus, etc???That's my favorite tool!

Bob Quinn said...

Loretta - the rules say you can do corrections but I think this one is just not sharp enough, particularly on an 8x10 print.

Costume Lady said...

I thought I'd peek in and see what everyone was up to. Boy, oh boy, did I get a surprise!!
The EAGLE EYE'S SISTERS are typing to Reggae music and eating munchies and Hershey bars;
PAULA is drinking RUM;
Hedgie is doing back flips;
Megan is on a lawn chair with a beet;
BOB is very unfocused;
and last but not least;
HELEN is higher than a kite...can't see anything but haze!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Our music is back! YEAH!!

Costume Lady said...

BOB, the photo of the woman through the sparkling drops of water in #7 looks very artistic to me. If it had been a woman in a bikini, it would be a sure winner! LOL

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

We are eating munchies, Wanda, we HAVE the munchies. Eating anything that don't eat us first.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I shot the sheriff!!

NatureNut said...

Sissy, QUICK!!! Get in your panda costume before the deputy comes!!!

Costume Lady said...

You girls are having such a good time on here, this afternoon...wish I could stick around. Keep the fun coming, it is good for the soul. ((Hugs))

paula eagleholic said...

BOB, if 5 isn't clear enough, I vote for 2 then...

Hedgie said...

Wanda, you interpreted the situation very well! LOL!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

No music again.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I agree with 2 too, Bob!
