White boat at Finland no sea eagles there now
Thanks for the new thread, SteveHope your Dr appointment had a good healing report on your knee!! We need you up and about!Nothing from the news concerning our pregnant panda! Just that the BIG winning lotto ticket was sold in GA!
I sent an email around to all in Eaglet group. Hope you all send me back your opinions or what you know about the question.

Samantha is doing very well in school - 1st grade - and Elizabeth is growing and growing!
It was an indoor pool close by that I was looking for Jo. Like I said McCormick bldg by City Hosp. would have been great. But they put the charge in with all the exercising equipment which I can't use. Won't reduce just for pool even with dr's perscription.
Contgraulations on your guys Jo. I know you are a proud (which you should be) grandmother.
Dana, I have not heard of the term LPN since the 80's, they have been called something else, same job, different title as far as I know, left my volunteer job on the cardiac floor of Suburban when we bought the condo
DANA: That lucky little boat has been there all night! Whoever is on it saw the Sea Eagles at first light !Bummer about McCormick Center...maybe we can get a group of us "oldsters" (sorry, but we're a special old breed) - could get together and approach them again! It is three blocks from me, and I love to swim...they have tethers you can swim and swim and not go anywhere! How about the Woods Resort ????Let's keep some ideas rolling on this one....xoxoxo
MEMA: GREAT news, thanks! How exciting... can you send us any pictures of Samantha and Elizabeth, or have I missed something somewhere?HEY - What exactly does SSG stand for? I told him I thought it was Staff Sergeant, or SPECIAL SERGEANT IN HIS CASE !!xoxox Love you Guys !
One proud Osprey at Wild Watch, and the Burrowing Owls are having a Saturday morning Party !
Sailboats at Finney Water Nest, Mema ! They are calling your name !!!PAULA: I really wanted to make Brownies for you....just didn't think I could cook two things in one day...! Maybe next time, or "nest time" for the October Open House, to go with the Cheese Cakes ! xo
Margie - it is Staff SergeantA little more pay and a lot more responsibility!
I just saw the sailboat... The other boat was there last night - I can't determine the size of it up against the other island.......
Magpie - yum for the brownies too!
Just being in the military is a HUGE responsibility, MEMA - God Bless them All ! I am glad to hear a little more pay is part of the package!That boat looks like a pretty good size, probably has cabins in a lower deck somewhere, maybe we will see it if sets sail today.Cranberry Orange muffins from a box mix just out of the oven! Not bad....I have a great Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe with extra spices thrown it, will have to pass that one along one of these days.xo
Ferry boat just passed through the island!
They have the wrong video on here...it shows Delta Dawn falling out of the nest...but here's the article about Dan's release...I'll find the release pic next... Delta Dan article
Here's Dan's release pics....about the middle of the thread Hancock Forum
That's precious, Paula, thank you guys so much for posting all this stuff for us...you are TRUE EDUCATORS for all us Happy and Eager students...big X's and O's...

Paula did you see the SPLISH SPLASH video on the Hancock Forum page 255 it is really cute
MEMA - I googled some things but some of it is in Finnish, uh, not my second language...I think someone will jump on here with the answers, but we can keep looking...
No Dana, haven't seen that one yet...heard about it tho...I think that was taken from the estuary cam, which is supposed to be back online....I tried that cam this morning but couldn't get on...Really got get moving! BBL!

Osprey at CT cam
GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE.hOPE you are having an enjoyable Labor Day Weekend so far.Still no sighting of Finney's chick by me. How about you?? Can we declare her "done migrated?"If you check the GPS of Nethy and Deshar, they appear to be moving a little, but only within England yet.iT'S still pretty overcast here in So Cal, but it's gotten to 75° already ... will be well over 80° before the day is done.How's everything in your neck of the woods??C(°ﮡ°)DJim
HI JIM - I HAVE BEEN WATCHING SINCE LATE LAST NIGHT AND ALSO THIS MORNING, NOT A CHICK AT FINNEY'S NEST TO BE SEEN, AND NO OTHER BIRDS EITHER.GOOD MORNING TO YOU, GOOD AFTERNOON FROM US !XO
MEMA: You're a Doll...will you be my Grandmother ???I never knew mine, as the last of 8 - they had all passed away before I was born...xo Enjoy yourself this afternoon !I know everyone else will enjoy you !xoxox
Good article and video of Delta Dan, Paula. Did you find a clip of his release yesterday though??As you were, Paula. I did a google and came up with this video....C(°ﮡ°)DJim dELTA dAN fREED
panda cam operator at NZ has the cam on a butterfly, it is black
know birds....lol.....guess he lost one of the pandas
ALERT BIRD AT FINNEY WATER
I'm sure it is one of the sea eaglesALERT BIRD AT FINNEY WATER
Oh Mr or Mrs Sea Eagle your alone and I think I am too on here ( :
BOTH ARE THERE NOW
One is flying out of nest now
NOW I'VE GOT 3 BIRDS ON THE NEST AT FINNEY ON THE WATER
They might be the Hooded Crows...have seen three of them there, but only two Sea Eagles....they are a fine looking bird too !
I see a small boat is still at the waters edge in Finny on Water. Is that the one you have been looking at Margy?
Wanda that is the boat that has been there all day. It is a rather large boat. At one time it was not as far towards land. You could see it better then.
Back already...junkyard was closed, guess they don't do much business this weekend! Checked the other local ones, they are all closed up for the weekend...glad it can wait!At least I found something good for dinner while I was out and about...having everyone over for bbq tonight, found some nice looking ribs, yum.
Going to go play a game for awhile.
off to the beach...later:)
** HEY BOBBI **It's still your birthday, lots of hours left to Celebrate...some of your greetings are on "Thursday" - we had no "Friday" this week! HOPE EVERYONE TREATS YOU LIKE ROYALTY TODAY....HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!XOXOXO Magpie, still in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia...
Maybe MITS got the alert that the dolphins were about to swim by !LOL Off to the mailbox.TTFNGood Day to All.Mountaineers play today....HEDGIE: Did you see I found Hydrox Cookies! Yummy ! They ARE the best....xoxo
I do remember Hydrox cookies. I think they were just as good as Oreos and a lot cheaper. I have been wondering what Charlies Chips are; potatoes or cookies?
Found some interesting info on the Finney over the water nest area (ie natureit.net nest). It is a shallow area of the Baltic Sea, marked by many small islands.You can read more about it from the link below....and click on the "nature" link on the left...it lists the plant and animal species....interesting tho, doesn't mention osprey but does the white tailed eagle Archipelago National Park
You can see the light shining from the boat that is achored at the island. On Finney on the water nest.
I think they are cookies, WANDA, Charlie's Chips. You might to ask WANDA again, or MEMA or JIM, I think they were all familiar with them. The rest of us are too young! OUCH! I'll PAY FOR THAT ONE ! (Hope they know I get senior discounts at some restaurants too !!)PAULA: You are TOO GOOD TO US finding our answers.Yep - the boaters are spending the night again! Maybe it is a honeymoon cruise?Bath time, then nap time, then work time!Good Rest of the Day to all.PAULA: My mouth is watering at the mention of home-grilled ribs !Bet the dogs will be salivating too !xoxo Take Care, and Big Prayers.
Home is the best place to eat ribs. There is no way to eat ribs without making a mess of yourself and everyone around you! Oh, sooo good! You go Paula!
Margy, hope you have a quiet night....or maybe a busy night will go faster???
LOL Wanda...will have the napkin holder out for sure!
Paula, a napkin won't do for me, I need paper towels. Lots of them!
You're right, Wanda. Maybe I should get out the washcloths, LOL
Busy here at the Park!Gotta get closed out & leave!!!BBL
Paula, some finger bowls would be nice too. Enjoy your cook-out. Gotta get dressed...going to a friends cook-out (hope they don't have ribs!)LOL
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Loretta.
All tubbed and scrubbed now, just a little computer fun before the Panda Nap, going in at midnight (I hope NOT BEFORE THEN!) - WANDA: This is why I sometimes keep such goofy hours...stay up late and get up early my days off so I can sleep before going in.Slow as Roast is the way I like it at work: some like it rockin'. What I like, is an old abandoned building fire with no harm done, but training for the FireFighters (and the dispatchers) - a medical emergency that can be treated at the scene with no transport, no one has to leave their homes, and some Bites out of Crime by the officers with some friendly miscreants, no pursuits, fights, DUI wrecks...I can find something to do to while away the time...as can the others. When I eat anything, I have a double paper towel with a little hot water on it, I am THAT BIG of a SLOB. Should just get out a BIB. Remember in the old days when parents would order Lobster at a fancy DC Restaurant, they wore bibs and we ALL had finger bowls. Well, I hate to leave the fun, gonna check out the Archipelago site, DEB's video once more, and hit the Pillows!Good Day to All. NATURE NUT: It's almost FRIDAY for you.MEGAN: Hope you had good day at Market ! Miss you, little flower lady...WAKE UP MASON...This ole' planet needs you back !xo
Hey Eagle Buds!! Me and Mattie have had a day all to ourselves at the lake today. It has been great, went down to the beach, went swimming, straightened up the camp. She is a great camping buddy!!
We lost our ballgame last night but it was a great game. We were 2 points behind, on the 1 yard line, 30 seconds left in the game, and tried a quarterback sneak. Our quarterback was not sneaky enough though. We lost but it was really a fun game. Me and Tom bickered back and forth (good naturedly) for the whole game. I love a good close competitive game.
ATLANTA PANDA CAM IS BACK ON, LUN'S WATER BROKE AT 1:25P.M......BIRTH CAN BE ANYTIME
Lun Lun's water broke today at 1:25 p.m. Birth could occur at anytime between now and the next 48 hours. You may also view live streaming video of Lun Lun at one of the following websites:GO TO THEIR PAGE FOR WEB-SITE
Good afternoon!HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOBBI!!!!!Loretta, before I forget again, thanks for nice pics, and I really like the hedgie!!Mits, we still have an LPN school here in Mtsbg.Wanda, Charles hips are potato chips...the only kind we ate as kids...a tan w/ brown delivery truck went door to door in the DC area back then...think they are out of PA. Cracker Barrell sells them...still in big tin cans! Getting some next time I go and see if they are still as yummy!Still haven't gotten any Hydrox...hopefully they will be on Food Lion shelf next week!Still catching up on todays blogs.Got sound okay on TV now!!!Paula, very interesting page about the Archipelago! TY.Hope everyone enjoys their picnics/get-togethers today!Jo, know you are proud of your newest Staff Sgt.!!
wish they had sound
Sissy...don't have your e-mail...hope you are watching
Go Lun Lun!!!!!
Thanks for heads up, Helen!!!
Got it Mits, thanks so much. My images are a little slower here but I can still get it. She is laying like a little kid with her arm over her face.
I was shocked, just was looking to see if there were any updates, even though it was the weekend, and there she was:)
Can't get anything but black on cams!! It is just now 5 so guess they are shutting it down for the night....awwwww...pooh!
mine is still on..
Mines on too, Hedgie!
Paula, you can have a panda cub watch BBQ
I'm also watching that menacing Hurricane Gustav...just got a bulletin it is a Cat 5
Dolphins have been around alot today:)
Still no luck!! Argh!
Checking on Lun, nothing yet poor babyBBL, gotta get some grilling done!
Lynn, even my blue url is not working now, because of the 5 minute time out, but cam is still going and Lun is still resting
Perfect weekend for panda labor!!
I'm Home from the Park Zoo!What wonderful Atlanta news!!!!On old 'puter--new one is getting a free MS scan for bad bugs, but NOW they tell me it could take hours!!!Gotta get Atlanta on this one if it's still up!
its still up, I'm assuming they will keep it up til the arrival...at least I hope so
Lynn, are you on the panda cub cam page....?
if only they had sound....you would hear that little cub, before you saw it
Rats, Atlanta cam is black on this 'puter. Told me I needed Windows Media Player 11, so downloaded & still black. Duh.Other 'puter not done scanning.Helen, you will be our eyes!!!
mine went black too, but I hit my refresh button and it cam back on
Showing another panda at Atlanta??
Or is that still Lun?
that is LUN's den
Thanks, Mits...looked like she wanted out...
and she is on her head....epidural please
Yes, Mits. Also tried the links through the other sites. It connects and says it's playing, but stays black...wonder if there's too much traffic??
have you tried just double click on black screen or refreshing, just sent you a WMP that Sharon had giving me, maybe that will work
I even went in and re-set Windows Media Player as default--it already was--and still no luck.
Have also rebooted 'puter.
did you get my e-mail I sent to you?
have you tried some of the other sites that they have on their page, below the cam?
I'm watching but I wished it had sound also.
Thank you, dear Mits...that works!!!!!
Cam moving in closer
Are they going to make her drop it on the bare floor again?? No bedding????
well that was up to her to bring stuff into her den....I'm guessing she likes a bare floor
full screen is nice it goes back to small when times upjust click ok and it goes again
all you WVA fans will be happy to know Michigan just lost to Utah 25 to 23
WV won their game also
Guess it's a good feeling for WV fans that they beat MI, considering the coach snafu! I don't follow it much...I pay more attention to VA, MD and DC college ball! Sorry 'eers....guess it's a non-native thing!
Okay, Helen...thought they were trying to prevent a lost butterstick!! Lun is going to do her own thing, huh? Most all animals provide some type of nesting material!!!!
well MD beat DEL, don't know who WVA was playing
WV played Villanova 48 to 21
yes, Lynn it is puzzling to me, why there is not something nice and soft for her...and this whole water breaking thing is new to me....how can they tell the difference from just plain urinating,,,guess it come out in a gush.
Somone is at the gate with a light looking at Lun Lun
Now she has moved to other side of den where the other gate is. She is looking through it.
Mits do you know why they didn't do the artifical on Mei?
ok easy win for them
There was most likely some blood in the amniotic fluid.
Mei was artificially inseminated on March 18th two times, they are thinking she just miscarried this time, but will never know for sure, so they are calling it miscarriage/false pregnancy
So this is a natural fertilization, huh? Good for them!!!
ok we are off to dinner...bbl
Too bad everyone isn't here to watch!!!
Lun Lun was artificially with Y's semen
I talked to Sharon, and Thelma is with her, and sissy knows, but lap-top isn't quite as fast at the lake, but they know and sure they are checking in...believe Sharon saw the actual birth last time.
Same father that was used and out came Mei Lan
Thanks Mits I did forget they did do that. Then thought she had a miscarriage.
Ok fine don't give me any pain meds Lun Lun says. I'll just bite the heck out of this here thing!!!
Wonder if Sharon seen Lun Lun act like this before?
Were those people feet on the other side of the bars? Dana, did you see it?
Yes Lynn they were on the other side. They used a flashlight putting the beam down on Lun Lun.
Wow, back on reg. 'puter & have Lun cam up. Don't know if she's comfy or not--oops they just changed the view. She had been laying on side, now she's almost on her head!
I guess now that I think about it. They were probably looking to see if the cub was coming out. Or maybe if Lun Lun was dialiting more or whatever Lynn.
Love the cute way they try to sleep on their heads!!!
Hi everyone. Does anyone remember the name of the hotel where we at dinner last October at the "Momsters Fling" I am looking for a motel/hotel.
Exciting evening going on Turned Atlanta Panda cam on as soon as I saw the emails... Thanks Mits for getting the word out on the Momsters' site! Really great that they turned the cam on for the event!
Hi Anne Marie - I'll email you the site.......
Looks like they're giving Lun some tidbits of food thru the jail cell door. Then she takes it to other end & chews.
36 hrs labor would take us up to 1:30 am Monday -- am I calculating correctly?
This is worst then waiting for an egg to hatch - At least we can see the crack in the egg!!! lol
YIKES THE CUB IS HERE!
LUN LUN HAS THE CUB IN HER ARMSLICKING AND LICKING AWAYLIFE IS SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!
HELP!!Where is it???
Wow, I was just gonna ask!!
Just walked downstairs and saw her licking
Did they black the camera out? Or did you see it being born?
Sharon also saw it born - Loretta & I were watching and just all of a sudden there was a cub! Talk about easy labor!The little cub was squirming all around the place and LunLun was looking at the cub - she took her pawand like touched the cub - then finally picked it up (I think) with her mouth - her back was towards cam-but then she had it in her paws up against her and was just licking away!
Camera was on, but I didn't see it shoot out. Saw it laying on the "bench" & then she went & picked it up!
You could just see it!Now she has turned her back to the cam
Every now & then you can see it's back feet & tail.
10:10 was the official time...and I missed it!
Cool, glad you were able to see as much as tht!
Oh wow!! Did anybody see the actual birth, cause I was looking, saw something flesh-colored at her right hand and then she backs up and the little squirmer was doing just that.
Called Sis to inform her of the birth and she is flipping out cause she can't see it! :)Lun turned right around and said, "okay, private time now!"
Give me privacy while I bond with this baby!!!
I wasn't watching 100%, but when I did look, that's when I saw it trying to crawl on the bench. I bet they'll show video. Lun may have been just sitting or lying there when it came out.I took photos of the screen when she was licking it. If I'm lucky, might see a foot or tail!
By now I think there are NOT twins.
Sharon I think we saw the same thing A NAKED BABY PANDA!! lolIsn't it wonderful! What are we going to call it, Sharon!You did ButaButaI think Suzanne did SquigglesDo you think this will be Squirmy from what we saw!
OK, maybe we'll get another peek now, got a glimps!
The cub will be in her arms continuously from what I remember for some time. Lun Lun will not leave for quite some time (days) to get food or drink. Well I can sleep tonight! WHOO HOO A NEW CUB
Remember how that camerman used to swing us all around that den.I wonder if a night light will go on soon - they will probably keep the lights on just to check on them.
I don't know how quickly a twin is delivered? Does anyone?
Boy, she's not gonna let anyone see it now.
WHAT WONDERFUL NEWS.....CONGRATS ATLANTA......:)
IT COULD BE ANYTIME FOR A SECOND CUB TO BE BORN...when was this one born about 30 minutes ago?
OK That is Picture Perfect Don't move the cam!Lun Lun always did that rocking and rolling! You did really good Lun Lun!
