HI WANDA!!---I think everyone is out buying PEACHES!!! ho!

Costume Lady said...

I wish I could share my Mom's peaches with you, she has a fridge draw full of them and about a bushel on the ground..more than we can use. I am going there today and will have to do something with them. As expensive as they are in the stores, it is a sin to let them go to waste.

normabyrd said...

Last update on LUN LUN--was Wed.!

Costume Lady said...

It is the same with our tomatoes...going to waste...I will freeze some tomorrow. Maybe make some stuffed peppers for Capt. Gene's homecoming tomorrow. I sure have missed him.

MITS said...

yeah, hubby was supposed to retire when he turned 60...they asked him to stay for 2 more years, he agreed, but only if he could up and retire before the end of the time if he wanted to....he'll stay, and they know it

MITS said...

the lovely Mei and Tian are in the yards next to each other...and Tai is, well Tai is where he usually is on the grate.

MITS said...

3 osprey up in CT

Costume Lady said...

Good idea Helen and Paula, about a soup kitchen. We have quite a few in our town. I hope our family gets together this Sunday and takes some of the veggies and fruits home with them.
HELEN...Denise sent me a photo of how restless the ocean was the other day. I posted a photo and also some of GeeGee's garden (on Just for Fun). She has given some of her excess to neighbors, but still lots left. Her soil is wonderful.

Costume Lady said...

Strange sight on SD Zoo cam?

Costume Lady said...

It looks like inside of a cave, looking out.

magpie said...

Good Morning Everyone...
Beautiful August Day here in the Panhandle...gong to be a hot one though..

Regarding Mason, Megan referred to an encouraging report this morning, and it is....

CUSTOME LADY: The Rescue Mission at 602 West King Street, shelter for homeless persons, they serve meals. Large yellow building just across the railroad tracks, past the 7-11 store, and across from that big red apple near the old Interwoven Plant...they are always grateful for donations..

Costume Lady said...

Thanks Margy...I had them in mind. They are on my way to Mom's.

MITS said...

great pics, Wanda....yeah we had winds out ot he NE for a few days, caused some beach erosion. That is why there was a drop off to get to the ocean.

magpie said...

Osprey at Finney's Nest, standing guard and alert - It is HIS NEST!

Sea Eagles at the Water Nest, seem to be there between 1 and 4 o'clock in the mornings, our time...(that's when I have seen them..) -could they be able to start a family this time of the year?

CEIL: Have a great vacation !

xo

magpie said...

++ INDIANA DAVE ++

Best wishes to you...like Paula said, get that home computer up and running! Imagine, you will be YOUR OWN BOSS NOW! FOREVER !
SO BE GOOD TO YOURSELF!

Glad your day is finally here.

MITS said...

Mei is munching on a carrot...:)

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning to Each & Everyone of you
Ceil - enjoy your week and have a great trip!

The osprey cam that we had been watching with EJ is now a bird feeder....and the squirrel is having a great time stealing the feed

MITS said...

OSPREY CAM NOW BIRD FEEDER

MITS said...

Well the squirrles have taken over.

normabyrd said...

ATLANTA CAM is up!---but just got a 'small' glimpse of BUTA BUTA!!

Costume Lady said...

I am Gizzardlips! Oddly enough, Gene is the same name.

normabyrd said...

WANDA!!---Where did you get that name????---gizzard lips?----That's a BUMMER!!!!!

MITS said...

Norma, check your momster mail.

normabyrd said...

MITS---MY computer is/has been acting up!----I tried & tried last night to read my mail-----Wouldn't let me on!!!---(think i have 999 emails)----Will try now!!!!---thanks!

magpie said...

sea eagles at the Water Finney nest right now....

magpie said...

MITS said...

so pretty...sea eagles

MITS said...

Norma, instead of the plumbers and AC men, get a 13 yr old in there to help with your puter

magpie said...

Yes, Loch Garten site confirms that Nethy and Deschar have started their migration, they will have updates soon on tracking their migrations...

Bon Voyage, Chicks...

magpie said...

WildWatch Osprey nest empty except for the unhatched egg....a minute or two ago, there was one chick on the nest.

And Finney's Nest Chick looking bold, demanding, and attentive!

TTFN - Got to get the car fuses checked...and still waiting on the A/C person..

xo

Mema Jo said...

I'm back Boobie. Glad to see you found your sister Zippy.
As long as you both are named Gizzardlips it should work out very well!
I see Sneezy and Snickle out there in Bluefield.
And Dumbo is going to get her fuses checked! lol
And thanks to Dipsy for letting us 'let loose' and have some fun!

paula eagleholic said...

Fianlly checked my email -

Mema Jo said...

Wanda & Gene have the identical name - first and last! Can't beat that for a good match!

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks Margy...sea eagles are pretty

MITS said...

It doesn't take much to amuse us, does it????

paula eagleholic said...

Got it now...

Haaaaaaaang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang ooooooonn!

paula eagleholic said...

Forgot Dumbo and Doombah...missed the second page of my emails....and another Dipsy too!

Costume Lady said...

First names for us both...Sloopy and we are HANGING ON!

Costume Lady said...

Paula's new name is my favorite: DIPSY POTTCHUNKS. lol

Costume Lady said...

HELEN, you are so right, it doesn't take much to amuse us. Isn't that wonderful?

Costume Lady said...

GeeGee gave me another piece of peach pie to bring home....that will be lunch. Don't want to fill my tummy...saving room for crab legs. (I also eat spinach and cheese casserole)

Costume Lady said...

I think we are all out to lunch. Enjoy.
USA basketball team is close to winning now and will go for the gold in two days.

Costume Lady said...

MITS said...

FRIDAY'S UPDATE FROM ATLANTA
Friday, August 22
No surprise here, but Lun Lun is continuing to sleep the days away. About the only thing that has changed in the last few days is that as of yesterday, she has gone off eating her biscuits, apple and pear. Basically all she’s willing to eat is sugarcane, banana (without the peel) and a few handfuls of bamboo leaves. This is something that we want to see as she gets closer to a potential birth, as food intake becomes less of a priority. Unfortunately, this means she is also less likely to come close to us so that we can check the status of any physical changes she might be experiencing, which also means ultrasound is out of the question. We just have to take the opportunity to check her out if she decides to lie in a position that lets us see her vulva. This most likely means it would be at a distance, and sometimes is hard to accurately judge. She did allow me about one minute of training this a.m., but was for the most part unresponsive. Hopefully this suspense will end soon.

magpie said...

Okay MITS - We're on needles and paws...er I mean Pins...

Good Afternoon Everyone!

WAKE UP MASON, THERE COULD BE A NEW PANDA CUB TO SEE ANY TIME NOW....

magpie said...

NORMA-BIRD: Mighta been your A/C guy, kinda cute, nice Southern Drawl, and about my age! But Poof! He's gone!

Now maybe I can do some cooking...

magpie said...

MITS said...

magpie said...

We'll Miss You, Paula...
Enjoy your evening...
xo

Hedgie said...

Margy, so glad you can be cool again!!

magpie said...

Thanks, HEDGIE...
it's taking awhile to cool down but it sure feels better...
good thing, or I would not have gotten to my cleaning!
Friday night date with the vacuum cleaner, what fun !
It's got to be done though..
xo Good Friday Evening Everyone !

magpie said...

Trust me, though, I am not complaining about housework, I am grateful to have a roof over my head...and it is kinda nice to see some of my special things again!
Yes, it was THAT BAD !

XOXOX

magpie said...

And I'm ready to stop at the drop of an Eagle Feather! But I have to force myself to stay off the other sites until I get some of this done....I did just have a peek at Okie bird cam and saw a nice buck, and no chicks at WildWatch Osprey....
but that's it! Back to Work !
xo

Mema Jo said...

Good Evening
I know you can't hear me, Margie with the vacuum running!
Had a nice early eve with daughter at the Mall - came home with one new shirt I found & it was on sale!
Dinner at Applebee's & then home.
Late cup of coffee for now.
Don't see any thing in our nest.. :(
I best check out Down Under's ledge

Mema Jo said...

There is a raccoon party in progress in the PA woods!

Mema Jo said...

Wild Watch: one chick with Mom in Nest.. Not much action anywhere on the cams! I guess it's Friday night and everyone is out on the town!...

I'll BBL

magpie said...

Oh Yeah JO - and now one big fat buck....

I was really wishing for some Eagle feathers tonight...

Guess they are out on a Friday Night Date !

Vacuuming done for a few, gotta clean up the mess on the floor in the bedroom before I hit that room!

Glad you had a nice time today..

xo Catch you folks after I beat back a few dust bunnies...

xo

Hedgie said...

Did you find anything that you forgot you had, Margy? I've always found that to be FUN!!!! You will really feel like you've accomplished alot when you bed down for the night!

Deb said...

Hi, everyone, sounds like a good day on the blog, with everyone enjoying Paula's name game.

MITS said...

Hi, Deb, how was your day?

MITS said...

Bai and Zen are snuggling out in San Diego

Deb said...

It was good, Mits. Very windy in the morning, but it calmed down this afternoon.

The osprey are starting to venture further from the hack tower, but most still come back at least once a day. We have two pro fishing osprey that are on their own already.

Little Gabby is making progress, but Janie reminds us to not get our hopes up too much. When you get to hold them, it is easy to become attached to them.

magpie said...

DEB - Your heart must be HUGE by now, caring for these Osprey and watching their progress...
How wonderful....
How is Sneezy doing?

By the way, Mom and two chicks at Wildwatch - at least at this moment..

magpie said...

HEDGIE: Yes, I found my dust rags! HA HA HA -

No, really - I did find some pictures/negatives that I have been looking for, and lovingly dusted all my birdie music boxes...
also found a few cassette tapes, including one wild Yodeling tape, so that one went in as soon as the A/C was back and I could shut the windows!

Love ya'

magpie said...

Looks like a little black mink with a white fur stole in OUR nest..
oh those night-time illusions are too much!
xo

Deb said...

Margy, we are superstitious and renamed Sneezy. He is now called Gabby after the man who started the Raptor program at U of Minnesota. He is eating on his own and gaining weight, but has a ways to go yet.

magpie said...

Oh, that's a good name, and a nice tribute to the fellow at U MINN.

Soon maybe they will be naming one DEB....eh?

Deb said...

Helen, I loved the pictures of Beauty that you sent out. Next step is in October, then the final fitting should be next spring. The good news is Beauty has been granted status as an educational bird and will be able to live even if the final beak doesn't work. The rules on keeping these birds are very strict, but Janie is very persuasive when she is passionate about saving a raptor that man has injured.

MITS said...

I'm glad about that Deb.....feel better knowing she will be protected and loved...she is a BEAUTY

Deb said...

Ha, good one, Margy. The bad thing about getting so involved with the osprey is they are going to leave soon and then we will all be a little lost.

movin said...

There are more pictures showing Frieda on her nest day AND NIGHT posted on Froona's blog. I think Frieda could lay anytime, although there are no mating pics showing.

The official Frodo site either doesn't have many pics or is not displaying them.

I think Froona must have a timer or something judging by the number she has at all hours.

Check the link below.



C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim


Frieda by day and by night

Deb said...

I was glad to hear it, too. I was so worried when I first heard that if it didn't work she would have to be put down. Janie's main point was that she can use Beauty to educate young people on whose responsibility it is to protect wildlife.

MITS said...

ya know there are some nasty ignorant people in this world, either by what they say, or what they do.....went down to my car today, and someone stole my 2 magnets on the back of my car...one was an American flag, that said GOD BLESS AMERICA...and the other was an OVARIAN CANCER MAGNET, my Mother -In-Law died from this disease 4 years ago, and this is how long I have had it on my car.....:(

MITS said...

100% agre....Deb, teach the youth.

Deb said...

There is a falcon there, now, Jim!

MITS said...

I have it on Deb, must have missed it

Deb said...

We had a high school biology class in today. They were very informed and had lots of questions. Their teacher is great and loves this project. He has helped out quite a bit, even lending his boat to the water rescues that happened.

We had Janie going for awhile, she would ask questions of the class and we would mime answers for them. She was so impressed with all they knew. The laughter finally gave us away, but you know that the kids will remember what they heard today.

Hedgie said...

Mits, I had that happen w/ my patriot magnet a few years ago. I bought another one and lifted up the rear wiper blade and put it on over the arm and that at least made it more difficult for anyone to swipe! LOL...in the COLD of Feb., I couldn't get the magnet loose when I traded in...and GMAC charged me $30 for having left it on! (I do SmartBuy, wherein I just pay for three years and then turn it in and start over with something new....kind of an extended lease!) But you are right...people are ignorant!!!

Deb said...

I think I am wrong about the falcon. I put up the pop up cam and the time is wrong and doesn't change. I thought it would be like our pop up and be current.

movin said...

I don't see any new blogs or articles at the SD Zoo, BUT there are a couple of new video clips you should see.

One is on the lion cubs, and the newest one is on a new baby (6' 2", 145 lb.) giraffe.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

MITS said...

I think Froona lives on the ledge.....:)

movin said...

I must have missed the falcon, Deb.

Mits, I'm sorry to hear of the magnet thieves. You don't suppose it was just some little kids, who thought they might have a use for some magnets sometime, do you?


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

MITS said...

that sounds like a good idea, Lynn...my car is over 8 years old now....and I love it but am getting antsy for a new one...I have never owned a car this long in my life

MITS said...

no Jim......we have alot of people come down here from a state up north.....and they love to drink and damage things....and act like they own the joint....and if it was kids that did it, the parents would do nothing about it

magpie said...

MITS - I am really sorry about those magnets...I can't make any sense out of it...maybe a prayer for the poor heartless soul out there...that would something so hurtful...
.....sigh......xo

MITS said...

Margy, if they only realized life is uncertain.....Deb my falcon cams have correct time ii:45 a.m. August 23rd

MITS said...

oooppppss that is 11:45a.m.

Deb said...

I clicked on the pics every 10 seconds and it was stuck on 11:01. I finally noticed the bird wasn't moving an inch and checked the time. I am trying it again.

Deb said...

It is working now, maybe I did something wrong, go figure.

MITS said...

going to shut down for the night...hubby is at the O's game up in Baltimore, and says he is going to drive down tonight....and I'm not a happy camper about that....so, GOOD NIGHT EVRYONE.....LYNN got myself some Hydrox cookies from the store.....and I well remember the Charles chips.......yummmmmmy!

Deb said...

The South Dakota pole vaulter at the Olympics came in fourth place. It would have been nice if he could have medaled, but fourth place is still pretty good.

magpie said...

I also found an old home-made cassette tape of Oldies songs - "Blue Moon" is on, Slow Twistin' just ended. And Before that, Bird Dog...
sorry guys this has nothing to do with birds, but these songs are great ! I should clean house more often !

MITS said...

how wonderful, Deb....

magpie said...

Morning is breaking in Finland...
nothing in either nest at this time..

Deb said...

I'm waiting for the sea eagles to visit. I wonder if they were just resting up for the big trip south. I will have to double check and see if they migrate, instead of just assuming they do.

Deb said...

It sounds like they spend the winter in the southern part of Finland and can occasionally be found in the north. I looked in many places for the answer, but what I found was on a photography site.

magpie said...

DEB - Can you tell me what part of Finland these nests are in, and how close together they might be, two Finney's nests we are watching...I can look it up in awhile too...
I hope they show up before 1 o'clock or so like they did last night..
Water sure looks nice and still, doesn't it..

magpie said...

The Osprey chick was on the other nest very briefly, is gone now, I just caught a short glimpse of it about 15 minutes ago...then Poof, gone.

magpie said...

I'm going back and forth between computer room and bedroom so I might have missed some of it too...

Costume Lady said...

I am "Slam Wore Out". (love that expression)(Sharon or Sissy?) It has been a long day. GeeGee and I had a fun evening; she felt good and ate quite a bit. She said "I can't believe it...I'm 88 years old and still having fun with my daughter. Made me feel so good!
Capt. Gene is coming home tomorrow. So glad...I really miss him in the evenings.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL.....WAKE UP MASON

Hedgie said...

Helen, are you enjoying chips and cookies together? I used to do that...the chips cut down on the sweetness!! OK, call me weird!!
I'm sure you'll be happy to have Jubby home. And I know Wanda can't wait for the Captain!!
Sounds like a neat tape, Margy!

Costume Lady said...

MARGY...BEDTIME!

magpie said...

Good Night, Wanda, sorry I missed you. I love to hear about your family things...
Your Mom, she's something else!

xo

Costume Lady said...

BEDTIME LYNN!

Hedgie said...

Finneys on the water is beautiful this "morning"--but MT nest.

magpie said...

That is such an awesome Osprey, in the Finney nest right now..

Hedgie said...

Yes, Wanda mama!!! It is. Goodnight all. Pleasant dreams. God bless all! Wake up, Mason!

Mema Jo said...

It is after midnight - everyone on here are now known as Night Owls


I sure did lose track of time this evening. I am off to bed but had to say
Good Night all my friends..
Peace to you and yours..
Prayers for all being said..

WAKE UP NOW MASON

Mema Jo said...

Psst.... You should see those 2 sea eagles!!! Awesome.....

magpie said...

Oh Mema - Glad you see them too!
I was forcing myself to get some things done and just now got back on the computer...

Good Night, but I bet I missed you...I might be the only Night Owl left.....??

xo

Mema Jo said...

Yepper! You're a Hoot!!!!

((hugs)) Night!

magpie said...

You know, those Sea Eagles, their coloring, is fantastic!

magpie said...

NOT as pretty as Liberty and Belle, though....

magpie said...

7:30 am their time, 12:3o am our time...

magpie said...

Somehow that chick at Finney's got food...I don't think he brought it in with him, but I didn't see the adult bring it in either...

magpie said...

There's four more pictures in the Sea Eagles album, and Jo has posted two on Yahoo....Nice!

Good Night...All

Take Care, and Prayers

...WAKE UP MASON...

I like the name of the TGIF thread Sharon/Steve.

T-Bird said...

Here's my version of TGIF-Thank God I'm Forgiven-I like it. :)

T-Bird said...

good morning eagle land

movin said...

Might as well say

A VERY GOOD SATURDAY MORNING TO YOU ***


I crashed and missed "good night" at a reasonable hour....


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

T-Bird said...

Hey Jim-does that mean you're going to bed now or waking up? :)

T-Bird said...

Do we have any eagles out there this morning?

movin said...

I think this is a picture of Finney's youngest eyass feeding on a fish she caught herself!

I was about to shut everything down, and was looking at an empty, sunny nest, wondering if she had migrated, when she suddenly appeared.

She was mantling and looking ferociously in several directions as if about to be attacked and screeching at something. Then she just stopped doing that whole group of behaviors and settled down to feeding on her fish, which she had clutched in her talons, but which I hadn't seen before.
