T-Bird said...

Good afternoon all. GO REDSKINS!!! Happy Anniversary Mits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

T-Bird said...

I'm so excited about routinely seeing our fine couple.

magpie said...

Hey - I was thinking while traversing the creek bed to get some photos of cardinal flowers:
' I SURE COULD USE AN EAGLE CANE RIGHT ABOUT NOW ' - PLOP - slid off the bank into the creek, got wet up to the calves, muddy too, but I got the shot! More soon.
xo

* HAPPY ANNIVERSAY MITS & JUBBY! *

A couple at church yesterday, were celebrating their 64th wedding anniversary - they were glowing !

xo

magpie said...

Also saw: Green Heron, was looking for food for a long time, and preening, lots of Cedar Waxwings, a very brief glimpse of a scarlet tanager, and at the end, two soaring Red-Shouldered Hawks, and I observed a Crow choking on something, man did he SQUAWK !
NO BEAVER and NO MUSKRATS!

Wildflower report next...

normabyrd said...

MORNIN'--HEDGIE---NATURENUT---PAULA ----& T-BIRD (my cowboy buddy)----ho!

normabyrd said...

MAGPIE----I would jump into the creek if I could see a SCARLET TANGER!!-----I used to have several GREEN HERONS!!----They stayed for several years!!!---So enjoyed watching them----

magpie said...

At Swinging Bridge: Joe-Pye (for real this time, Wanda) - goldenrod, woodland sunflower, violet garden phlox, on the way back saw a wild field of New York Ironwood, Joe-Pye Weed, and about five others, with plenty of butterflies about..it was really gorgeous, but my "good camera" was already out of film. And close to home, about 1/2 acre of pink butterfly weed or something like it, probably has another name.

Gotta wash off, maybe poison ivy oil and muddy feet !

Good Afternoon all....

xo

magpie said...

Yes, Wanda - this heron was nice! I spooked him a little when I got there, which is good because that is how I saw him! I spooked him again when I circled around to get some photos of the flowers...but I saw him at the other side of the bridge after that. I was hoping to see an Osprey there - it's rare but I have seen them....but I didn't today.

xo

magpie said...

I bet Shepherdstown is HOPPING !

WAKE UP MASON, EVERYONE'S TALKING ABOUT YOU!

magpie said...

ooooooPS! NORMA - I MEAN NORMA, THIS HERON WAS NICE!


I guess I need my Panda Nap !

Not talking straight !

T-Bird said...

Hope you are okay Magpie-I can just imagine you sitting or standing in front of your computer letting us know your experience before you even showered-got the ivy or mudd off. Glad your okay.

MITS said...

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE Thank you so much for the anniversary wishes....Jay and I have been married 34 years today.....and they said it would not last:)

magpie said...

I set the alarm clock early to try to see the Eagle Couple...hit the snooze button at leat once, and when I DID get up, I saw the last 30-seconds of both of them, then just the one for another few mins.

'YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE...'

In this case, I almost missed out..

MITS said...

went to church and out to breakfast....heading to the beach and will go out to dinner tonight.

normabyrd said...

MY COMPUTER NEEDS TO BE THROWN IN THE CREEK!!-----FROZE UP THIS AM ---TWICE!-----

AP is showing "GROWING UP GORILLAS" now----TOO CUTE!!!---one has a diaper on------They are strong little devils too!----so lovable---

MITS said...

thanks Steven for new thread and Magipie for being 1st....have a great vacation...Steve

magpie said...

It's a good thing it's not a live web cam here....You all would have to run away from the computer !!!

34 years HELEN and JAY -

And ANOTHER 34 ON THE WAY !!


Lots of x's and o's your way today!

magpie said...

Thanks T-Bird...

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO!!---BYE--JO!!!

normabyrd said...

Must get the Wash. Post & lunch!

magpie said...

Interview tonight at 7 pm NBC with Michael Phelps...they filmed it last night. The medal ceremony finally was televised....after one of the Men's Track Events. It was nice.

NatureNut said...

Happy Anniversary to Mits & Jubby!!!! Celebrate on the Beach---great day to go back to OC!

Norma, Dr. Daughter and I are the same age---39!!! Tee Hee

Margy, Love your adventure---sounds like some of mine! Yesterday, after working at Park (it was a zoo!), went down to get pic of woodsy boardwalk. Heard rustling sound in treetop. Figured it was a squirrel---but no, it was a huge brown bird that took off!!Walked a little further & the giant bird flew again, but over the river into the sun---White Head & Tail!!!!!Couldn't get a pic, as it soared lower & I was surrounded by monster cattails & wild rice. Hope I see it again!

magpie said...

NATURE NUT: Makes your heart pound doesn't it? The surprises are the most fun, serendipity. I'm glad for your adventures...

I could have used your help Id-ing some butterflies, saw the Tiger Swallowtail and Spicebush, and some little small orange with black markings, and one little deep yellow with a little orange...
Need to get a GOOD DIGITAL, and a GOOD BUTTERFLY BOOK.

- - - -
WildWatch Osrpeys look great, think LW Eagle is active cam now again, something rather unusual looking in the nest, maybe the remains of the deceased second chick? or maybe part of a recent meal...

Take Care All...Nap time with a little Osrpey reading first, if the Blogger Cop doesn't take this message like it took my last one !

Floralgirl said...

What is this vacation thing I keep hearing about??

magpie said...

Not sure about vacation, Megan...
but you do have mail..
How was Shepherdstown? Friend from down that way, has a too-slow computer and was not aware of the Betty's effort, but thinks some of the other merchants may follow suit, sounds like a great WAKE UP idea to me..

xo

magpie said...

Oh, yeah, Steve is on vacation for a week...

Floralgirl said...

magpie said...

Ok - Great, MEGAN - I'll watch the evening news, and can also get it on the computer - that is one pull-together town, Shepherdstown...
free spirits all around...

your4state.com - is the link to the local TV station..

Floralgirl said...

magpie said...

Ditto that, MEGAN..I actually lived in Shepherdstown for awhile, twice, while attending college there...
a loooooong time ago...once, right next door to the "Men's Club" -
email back atcha - and thanks !

xoxo Now, Relax.....xoxo

PS WAKE UP MASON, ANYTIME, ANY DAY !!

magpie said...

Now that I think of it, is WHAG going to be the same as NBC-TV Alive? If not, then the website I posted won't apply...

Floralgirl said...

Yeah, that link you posted is for WHAG-25 Alive- the Hagerstown station

NatureNut said...

Margy, Sent you pic of small orange butterfly===bet that's who you saw. ;>)

AND BTW, WAKE UP, MASON!!!

Floralgirl said...

I just finaly read all the comments- Happy anniversary to Helen and Jay!

Mema Jo said...


Today's Journal Entry to Mason from Ashley



WAKE UP MASON

Ceil said...

Good news about Mason, Jo. Having trouble getting on to the blog. Had to come through the back door.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Ceil
I hadn't turned mine off today ..
Glad you made it in .. maybe others are having the same problem as there are few comments from this afternoon.

It's been a beautiful day.. I've been watching the interviews of Michael Phelps and last one was with his mom. Great People!

Hedgie said...

If anyone is musically inclined.....I found this while doing some other research...John Philip Sousa wrote a march called The Invincible Eagle. It is on public domain, so you can print out the sheet music for free! Just do a search (John Philip Sousa's The invincible Eagle) and find the site that mentions download. It's a PDF. I haven't played it yet...looks a bit tough!! Too tired tonight to try!

Ceil said...

EAGLE ALERT

magpie said...

Eagle alert....adult in the nest ...

!!

magpie said...

I am so sorry....it was there just for an instant !

Now, gone....

Ceil said...

Quick visit. Poof. But good to see.

Mema Jo said...

Is the adult still there?

magpie said...

Ceil - how quick a visit that was!
Maybe it will return...but we have had phenomenal good fortune in the early mornings lately.

Good Evening to you and Everyone else !

Mema Jo said...

OK! I was trying to see an eagle in all those webs and lights.... I was going bongos!

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie - you going to try tomorrow to play it on Piano?

magpie said...

MEMA: I went bongos when it disappeared so quick! Nope, it was one of the quickest stops ever...I suppose it could make it back ...

Old Luna will be emerging pretty soon, I think it's about 15 mins later each night...

Thanks for the link to the updates on Mason...it sounds encouraging...imagine getting pinched in the armpit! Megan reported that WHAG was there today, so we might be able to see that on the nightly news..or: your4state.com

xo

Ceil said...

Lynn I google John Philip Sousa's the invincible eagle and it has it on you tube play. I saw the sheet music and it looks hard. Now march.

Mema Jo said...

Is there a daily Shepherdstown
newspaper - The Journal ?

Ceil said...

Magpie I was on the phone and was almost rude to the person. Like get off I see an eagle and have to tell everyone. I did not even say adult just eagle.

Deb said...

Hi, all. I am home, have eaten dinner and am now relaxing.

I found The Invincible Eagle on YouTube, go to this site: The Invincible Eagle

Mema Jo said...


The Invincible Eagle


Just a sample of it!!
MARCH ONWARD & UPWARD

Mema Jo said...

Well HELLO DEB! HOW BE YA?!

You're just as fast as ever!! lol
Good to have you back!

Deb said...

We all did the same thing!! I am not musically inclined so had to find it all ready for me to listen to.

Mema Jo said...

Likewise!

Deb said...

It is nice to be home early today. I even had dinner ready in the crockpot, so I ate well tonight. Tomorrow I am staying in town, that will be nice, too. I need to get caught up on details.

magpie said...

Hi Everyone...it's always nice to catch up on all the news and check out the sites that people post.

MEMA: Saw where you signed the Guest Book, me too. The entry from the Calhoun Family is awesome, was the most recent one when I just checked in...really says it all about a lot of things.

Mema Jo said...

Mason's guest book is for very good inspirational reading. Shows all the more that without Faith you could really lose it!

magpie said...

CEIL: I am the same way! I was checking emails and stuff, and go back to the cam between checks, and there it was! If I am on the phone, I try to type with one hand, and it doesn't work very well...

Hedgie said...

Oh, you smart people!!! Thnx! Do believe I've heard it before. Typical march tempo...argh!! I will definitely try it, but not really my forte!!! Always did have a problem "counting"--and I gave my metronome to my more talented youngest!!

Hedgie said...

Missed our visitor...again! I was stuffing my face w/ dessert!

Mema Jo said...

DEB - Buddy has a good report
Frodo & Frieda are not regulars on the ledge yet. But 2 nest wells have been spotted.
Mei is not pregnant BUT we are now
hoping that LunLun, Atlanta Zoo, will be. Won't know for awhile.
Osprey chicks at WildWatch are growing!


Other things I'm sure for you to catch up on.... Just ask

Hedgie said...

No, Jo, no Shepherdstown daily...not even sure if they still have a weekly/monthly...I think just The Spirit of Jefferson, out of CharlesTown, which I THINK is weekly.

Mema Jo said...

DEB - Be sure to look at blogs of Wanda & Loretta & Megan

magpie said...

There is something called the Shepherdstown Chronicle, I think, and it comes out once a week...will check with a Shepherdstown Bud and see about getting it...
It's a cool rag....

Mema Jo said...

So maybe the Martinsburg paper would cover Shepherdstown - or the Herald Mail in Hagerstown. Just wanted to read about the fund raiser for Mason.

magpie said...

The Morning Herald, probably, doubt the Journal....we'll check in the morning and tell each other about it!

Deb said...

Jo, Thanks for the updates. I love Megan's gardens, too bad her markets are too far for me! Loretta works in a beautiful area, wouldn't that be wonderful to see all the time. I had seen the caterpillar, will look for updates. I also saw Norma with her handyman!

Deb said...

No more caterpillar, how long do we have to wait for a butterfly?

Hedgie said...

Much more likely that The Herald will cover! The Journal is usually a day late and a dollar short!!! I get both, so will let you know.

Ceil said...

Think I will call it a night. Pleasant dreams.

magpie said...

DEB: The story about Wanda's caterpillar has been a heartwarming one...she had planned on giving it to me, but I couldn't hook up with her at the time. So even though her Mother GeeGee received it, she still called it "Margy's Caterpillar." We named it CATTY - NOW, I guess we should name it CHRISSY! -
It is in VERY GOOD HANDS!

xoxo

magpie said...

Loretta: Think what I saw was Meadow Fritillary, got your email, and sent you one too..Thanks!

"Ask and you shall receive" is the way it goes on here..
xo

magpie said...

GOOD NIGHT CEIL....WHAT ARE YA' DOIN' BETWEEN 5:3O AND 6:30? MAYBE WE'LL SEE OUR LIBERTY AND BELLE...

magpie said...

Whatever was on the nest at Lake Washington Eagle, the remnants of something which I saw earlier...have disappeared...

magpie said...

Talk about going bongos!
Now I look at LW Eagles and what I saw earlier, is still there..I swear the nest was clean when I posted that comment about it being gone...I'm just gonna give up !

Floralgirl said...

Shepherdstown weekly paper- the Chronicle- comes out on Fridays.

magpie said...

Thanks, Megan...

Luna has emerged...

WAKE UP MASON! NO MORE ARMPIT PINCHING WHEN YOU DO!

paula eagleholic said...

I'm back!

Deb. was that a picture of the eagle nebula to Sousa's march?

Mema Jo said...

I took an ice cream break.. Sorry I forgot to tell you.

Lake Washington-Someone on one of the other forums did spot the Juvie
on 8/13. I guess they are leftovers we are seeing.

Deb said...

Whoa, I googled that, Paula, you could be right!!

Mema Jo said...

That is Cool! NEBULA

I kept thinking the youtube presentation was going to turn into a picture of an eagle... but Nebula says it all. Thanks Paula!

Mema Jo said...

BBIALW

magpie said...

DEB - THAT AVATAR IS AWESOME!

Hedgie said...

Time for Army Wives...BBL.

Deb said...

Thanks, Margy, how lucky can you get to have an osprey with a fish fly over your head. I have had so much fun taking the pictures.

Deb said...

Here is a news story from today about the osprey. They were hoping the video would make it to the website, so I will check again later. This station is, as the reporter said, the poor station in town and they don't have the budget the other two stations have. They just don't have the bandwidth to post many videos.

Ospreys doing well

magpie said...

Video or no, that is a GREAT story Deb....and a nice photo...
Thanks for the Link...

Just think, they will fly South soon....maybe they will fly over West Virginia on the way....(that would be a detour, but what the heck!)

xo

Costume Lady said...

After I read about Deb's osprey, I read an article on the same page about a robbery in Souix Falls where two men took money from the cash register and then fled. If they had been a little smarter, they would have filled up with gas first!LOL (they both were caught)

magpie said...

HI WANDA....
YOU HAVE MAIL.
XO

Mema Jo said...

Well written article as to what you have been up to. Photo was great.

Is there more watching to be done until the osprey leave?

I thought your avatar was of the osprey that had the drooping leg..I didn't see the fish!

Deb said...

When drugs are involved, they usually aren't too smart, Wanda. Too bad, they aren't off to a good start in life at 18 years old and facing such serious charges.

Costume Lady said...

Deb, I read somewhere on here that osprey and I guess eagles too, try to carry their fish head first to make them areodynamic. I think that is cool.

Deb said...

We are really watching the backpack birds to see when they start fishing. They were the first released and haven't done that yet. Jane is worried that the backpacks are a hindrance to their survival.

Costume Lady said...

Margy, that must be SNAIL mail...not in my inbox yet.

magpie said...

I love to see it when someone takes a BITE out of crime...Shame people just don't follow the GOLDEN RULE....

The Invincible Eagle: Wonderful end to the day...thanks for making the quick link possible, folks...

Speaking of bites, time for a late night snack!

xo

Deb said...

That would be what this one did, except it ate the head first. It was sitting on the bank eating when we first spotted it.

magpie said...

Figures Wanda..often happens that way with Yahoo. Think I will post from Verizon, speeds things up..

Deb said...

I met a man this weekend that belongs to the bird watcher group in SF. He was talking about going to the Black Hills last winter to see the birds. I asked if it was hard to find the golden eagles that go there and he said no, they were all over but I didn't have to go that far to see them. He showed me about where to find them, then gave me his e-mail and will send me the exact directions. He also told me about a place near Pierre that has snowy owls! Wouldn't that be great!!

Deb said...

Night, everyone. I'll be on off and on tomorrow in between catching up on chores.

Helen, hope you had a good 34th anniversary!

Mema Jo said...

I love snowy owls!
I think you have forgotten all about a back to the work world date!!! lol

Hedgie said...

It always seems to take a long time to send from AOL to Yahoo. And wonder why it always shows Pacific time on Yahoo? eBay does that,too. Guess they are west coast-based businesses!!

NatureNut said...

Love that Osprey story, Deb. Wonderful that it's covered in the media.

Edited Blog and after talking about woodsy trails--didn't show any! So just added a couple woodsy trails!!Wish I didn't have to stay in the office there all day--but at least I have to tell myself the environment is nice!
Back to Olympics--gotta see gymnastics if it isn't over.

Hedgie said...

Well, friends, guess I'll hit the tub...gotta get the chlorine off! Hope everyone sleeps well w/ pleasant dreams. Goodnight!

magpie said...

Raven on the nest at Finney's -

Costume Lady said...

Good Night Deb and Loretta, sleep well.

paula eagleholic said...

Been watching the gymnastics too, plus chatting on the phone.

Osprey and eagles tend eat the fish head first. Generally the male osprey will deliver the fish to the female with the head eaten off...makes it easier for her to feed the younguns!

Nite all!

Mema Jo said...

Good Night everyone - It has been a good day!

Peace to you & yours
Prayers for all being said..

Wake Up Mason
Sunshine coming at you in the morning

Costume Lady said...

Come to think of it, I need to sign off too.

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

ps...
I read that Mason has shown a tiny bit of progress.

MITS said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE, THANKS FOR ALL THE WISHES....WAKE UP MASON:)

NatureNut said...

NatureNut said...

Mason, WAKE UP IN THE MORNING!

magpie said...

GOOD NIGHT ALL HEADING TO THE FEATHER PILLOWS. IT HAS BEEN A STELLAR DAY...

PRAYERS FOR THOSE IN FLORIDA ...WITH "FAY" APPROACHING..

MOVIN': WILL BE WATCHING FOR ANY LATE NIGHT POSTS....

HOPE YOU ARE FEELING BETTER...

WAKE UP MASON, WE'RE STILL TALKING ABOUT YOU !

XO

magpie said...

No 25-Alive news yet 'cause the Olympics holds the channel, checked the website, nothing shows yet...maybe in the morning...

magpie said...

Aaah- the Osprey took his nest back at Finney's

magpie said...

Some of the American Olympic swimmers will be on the TODAY show Monday morning....Michael Phelps, Dara Torres, Leezak, and one other...
I missed the interview at 7 - hope it will be re-broadcast...

Fundraiser in Shepherdstown Helps Family Amidst Tragedy
WHAG-TV
updated 12:45 p.m. ET, Sun., Aug. 17, 2008

SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV - Friends and neighbors of a Shepherdstown family hit by tragedy have helped them to cope through a unique fundraiser, ultimately pulling the community together.
Inside a makeshift jail to draw attention to the event in Bettys Restaurant, Heather Renaud hosted the 6-hour fundraiser to raise money for Mason Ellsworth, a teenager critically injured in a car accident last month.
Renaud said, He's known as the bacon boy. He loves bacon so that's what he comes in to eat all the time. All of the tips collected by the wait staff went into the Ellsworth Fund. Mason Ellworth's family owns Ellsworth Music Supply and Repair on Duke Street. Renaud said they raised more than $4,000 that will go directly to the Ellsworth family to help pay Mason's medical bills.
Renaud attributed the success of the fundraiser to her community. She said, It's just a great little town to be in. I feel like if something like that would happen to my family, they would be there. That's what Shepherdstown is all about. Mason is still in a coma, but he is becoming more responsive by the day.

Mema Jo said...

Good Night
Sweet Dreams

magpie said...

Thanks, Mema...missed that on the site...25-Alive news is on now...
maybe, something will be on there?

magpie said...

Story up Next about Mason's fund-raiser...

25-Alive

magpie said...

Pretty nice little story...25-Alive, not a whole lot of information about Mason and the accident, but, nice interviews with townspeople and good camera coverages....

Should be on the morning news too.

magpie said...

It's extremely windy at the Hobby nest, chick is perched on a branch off the nest, looks cold and frightened...

T-Bird said...

no eagles that I've seen yet this morning

T-Bird said...

Happy Happy B-day Candy!!!!

magpie said...

Thelma:

We have company....in the nest....

Costume Lady said...

I think we have an Eagle Alert. Not sure with the web in the way.

Costume Lady said...

Yep...looks like Lib. Hooray!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning everyone!! I see a beautiful creature behind all of spidey's art work this morning!! Morning magpie and Thelma!!

T-Bird said...

gone just that quickly :( thanks magpie-goodmorning Wanda and Magpie and Bev

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Back to the real world this morning. The lake was wonderful, perfect weather. Got to see an osprey twice along with a green heron and another kind of heron (regular run of the mill one I reckon).

T-Bird said...

I think they'll both be back-creatures of habit (them and us, huh?)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Happy Birthday to you!!
Happy Birthday to you!!
Happy Birthday dear Candy!!
Happy Birthday to you!!

EAGLE

magpie said...

Gone? It was bent over picking at something in the nest...I do still see an eagle don't I?

Good Morning Early Eagle Watchers !

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING THELMA AND MARGIE...
Lib looks like he is moving sticks around in the nest...what do you think? Maybe eating something...nope, too early to eat.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning, Wanda. Didn't see you out there!! How are all my wonderful friends out in Eagle Land this morning? Had to get up early and get to work, have to get my hair done this afternoon.

T-Bird said...

Wanda,

You and Sharon-I don't see how you can pick'em.

xo

T-Bird said...

got to get ready to make some dough-ya'll be good now ya hear

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Both parents!!!!

Costume Lady said...

I think that is Lib... he doesn't fill the nest up and much as Belle and his feet are different.

Costume Lady said...

Oh, what a sight!! Beautiful couple.

magpie said...

It's never too early to eat !

Tee Hee...
This is Great..
Oh Goodness: Now Two !!

Costume Lady said...

I am sure they are discussing how they are going to remodel the nest for the next brood.

magpie said...

BUDDY - GO GET YOUR MOMMA!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Boy, I'd love to be sitting out there by the nest this morning with a cup of coffee, watching these lovely creatures!!

Costume Lady said...

Lib looks like he has a stick in his beak or is talking to Belle.

Costume Lady said...

No stick, I think he was yawning. lol

Costume Lady said...

Belle didn't stick around very long. Maybe she's getting breakfast. SOMEBODY'S GOTTA MAKE THE DONUTS.

magpie said...

two eagles again...aaaaahhh

Costume Lady said...

OK, we have a couple again.

magpie said...

This is getting better every 90 seconds!

Costume Lady said...

They are checking out the egg cup.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

So, we will not see the juvies anymore?

T-Bird said...

Actually, I do not want to leave anyone out (MITS, Jo, Paula, Magpie, Jim and Normabyrd have all amazed me with your skills of picking out Belle or Liberty!!!!)
