Good morning folks. Back from coffee and dog treats. Thanks for the new thread Steve

glo said...

Another storm going through so not too sure if I will need to shut this computer back off or not. Geesh I just turned it on

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Thanks Glo and Steve!! Did you see where we had an adult in the nest this morning?

Steve, have there been any sightings of our juvies?

glo said...

Yes Sharon just read the end of the old thread. Glad to know Mom or Dad is still around sometimes.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning Eagle buddies!! Thanks Steve.

glo said...

Ahhhh an eagle fix in my email. Thank You Sharon

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

You are welcome Glo!

Red said...

Good morning Glo, Sharon and Sissy. I'm glad to see at least an adult is still around. Really needed that fix.

GOOD TUESDAY MORNING EVERYONE

MITS said...

catching up on posts and e-mail....looks like Mei may have had an ultra-sound, was licking her paws and belly, at least they may have tried to do one.

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning everyone out there in
Eagleland

I am up & about earlier then usual but not soon enough to be an 'early bird' and see our eagle! Thanks Sharon for the pic! It's next best to the real thing!

Mema Jo said...

Jim gave us the link to Buddy's report


Link to Recent Report on Buddy



NatureNut - thanks for the Finney2008 pics. Suzanne said adult brought in 2 fishes for the older osprey but didn't think any was brought for the youngest. Don't know if Finland will intervene or not ...

Mema Jo said...

Prayers and positive thoughts requested by Megan for Mason


Candles for Mason

MITS said...

thanks, Jo:)

NatureNut said...

Was able to get Finland nest on this 'puter, but "connects to camera" every so many seconds. Sibling was sitting w/youngster awhile ago, but it is alone now.

NatureNut said...

Dave, saw you were/are on here. Your pictures are wonderful. You're so fortunate to be able to see the birds in some open territory.

Mema Jo said...

Time to hit the showers for me...
Lunch date with past working buddies.
Be back on here early afternoon...

Safe journey home if I miss you Mits

Today is Megan's flower day in the
Big City!

MITS said...

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

update in LUN LUN...









Monday, August 4
The saying goes that no news is good news ... Well, I hope that is true today, because there is no news on Lun Lun today. She continues to eat normally and go on exhibit – no slowing down yet. Her hormone levels do indicate that she is in the pregnancy/pseudopregnancy phase, but she is not showing behavioral signs yet. We are sending urine samples off twice a week now to be analyzed, so hopefully we can predict when a possible birth could happen. However, as we have all said in the past, Lun Lun likes to be different and do things her own way: in 2006, she exceeded the predicted birth window by several days and kept us guessing. So again, we will continue to wait and see ... and of course, we’ll keep you updated.

ANOTHER EARTHQUAKE IN CHINA

MITS said...

FROM THE ATLANTA CAM 8-5-08
We're having server issues today-please stay tuned we will have it up shortly.

NillaWafer said...

Good Afternoon Folks, Just popping in aminute.. Looks like bad storms here in Martinsburg today and even more tonight.. I need to tell you i saw what i thought was 2 eaglets flying quite low in the sky over Winchester Avenue coming into work thsi morning heading towards the direction of Shepherdstown.. Flying side by side what caught my eye was there wing span as i was getting out of my car...Well maybe heading home for a rest in the nest... Glo i saw your have or had bad storms once again in your area.. Hugs to you... BBL off to check cameras..

NillaWafer said...

Oh no as if those poor people didnt have enough devestation.. Mits since the earthquakes do you think now theres a chance that Tai will stay here for a longer peroid of time rather than go back next year???

MITS said...

I have thought about that, Nilla, but the Chinese people work so hard and efficiently, that my guess right now is, he will go back next year

NillaWafer said...

I suppose so there are more Panda places than just those destroyed in the earthquake.. I wish Mei would make up her mind and drop the baby..lol I thought surely she would have had it by now if she is in fact prego...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

That quake was not long after the Olympic torch went through the area. They really have their hands full over there.

MITS said...

we still have some time, Nilla, but not much more time.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I was reading where the pollution is so bad in Beijing that it is the equivalent of smoking 70 cigarettes a day. Athletes are going to have a hard time.

MITS said...

think it is safer to smoke, than breathe their air......JUST KIDDING!

MITS said...

GOT TO DO MORE PACKING..BBL

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

From what I am reading and seeing on the news, I think you are right, Helen. Wonder what they were thinking when they gave them the Olympics. I don't think this pollution is a new problem.

NillaWafer said...

Hey Hey Hey Sharon if i havent lost track of time i think in August will be 2 years since i quit smoking and Jo isnt far behind me.. I thinking about the money im saving and its allowed me to go back to Disney and parks in October with daughter and her sister inlaw Theresa.. But we fly from Baltimore on Oct 17th day before Open House... sighhh

NillaWafer said...

hahaha you'd think they wouldnt have so much pollution they all ride bikes and ricshaws over there..lollll

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

You go Nilla!! I am so proud of you!

movin said...

GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY!!

A new quake in China! What timing.

Fortunately it was not as powerful as the May quake and might be another aftershock.



C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

MITS said...

That tremor killed almost 70,000 people and left 18,000 missing and 5 million homeless. There had been 22,019 aftershocks detected since then -- including three in the past four days before the last incidence...6.0 IS A PRETTY BIG AFTERSHOCK

NatureNut said...

Heard on car radio this AM, that new quake is in the same province as before--Szechaun, I believe. Hope people had not settled in yet & weren't most of the panda's moved?

Red said...

Congratulations Nilla to you and Jo. and you can pat my back too as I have been off them for one year now after smoking for 55 years.

MITS said...

yes, Loretta, they were moved.

paula eagleholic said...

Pats and Congrats to all those quitters!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

This November will be my 10 years no smoking. I am grateful every day to not want a cigarette. So much freedom, not to mention breathing better.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

And I smoked alot for a long, long time.

Costume Lady said...

Hello Everyone...
I am sitting at a bar in Berryville. Just thought I would check in and let you know where I am so Margy wouldn't come looking for me. Have a nice day.

NatureNut said...

OK Gang, when should we start calling the Finnish Embassy for translater &/or contacts on osprey nest? Another whole day, & no naturalist visit. Perhaps their policy is to not interfere----would be nice to know. :>(

MITS said...

packing up and heading out, talk to you all later:)

MITS said...

in a bar, huh, Wanda....little early don't ya think:):):)

movin said...

Congratulations, Sissy. May 30th marked 6 years without a smoke for me.

It's a lot cheaper too, as well as more healthy. My heart specialist is ecstatic. I'm probably healthier and happier.

It's a 'win, win situation'.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Now if I could get the willingness to exercise and get rid of this weight. Never satisfied are we?

movin said...

There's a new video at the SD Zoo on the two Panda birthdays this past weekend.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

paula eagleholic said...

It's 5 o'clock somewhere ;)

Have one for me, Wanda. Enjoy!

Mema Jo said...

Hey You In The Berryville Bar

Do we need to tell Margy to
come get you? lol

Mema Jo said...

NatureNut - last year we tried and tried to translate and communicate
with the Finish nest when one of the chicks died. We really didn't have much luck. Now at least they have the Nest News in English. Last evening Paula got a quick response from a friend - so that may be our contact to find out what is going on.
Don't be upset but it is possible that the adult parent will NOT feed the youngest bird that is injured... :(

Mema Jo said...

I think it is almost midnight at the nest - I cannot see if the youngest
chick is in there. Will need to wait until rather late this evening when the sunrise occurs over there.

IrisF said...

CONGRATUALATIONS to Nilla, Jo, Red, Sissy, and Jim for quitting!!!
I too quit 25 years ago last March, so I know it is not an easy thing to do...takes determination for sure!!!
I'm really proud of you all!(and even proud of me too actually)
Of course...there is still the weight problem yet to conquer!!!

Hedgie said...

Hi gang! Suffering w/ a pulled shoulder, so very uncomfortable at keyboard, but needed to check in and see "wha's up". I quit 3 yrs. 2 mos. ago., the day before chemo started!!! Congrats to all the rest! HAve to say that it was probably the hardest thing I ever did, considering the stress of the situation. But Wellbutrin really helped.
Wanda, dear, you didn't have to run away to Berryville to have a drink!!!! Some of us nearby would have joined you at a local bar!
Feeling so sorry for the poor juvie in Finland...but that's nature....survival of the fittest, as they say.
At least we know that Buddy was named appropriately for his gender!
Mei....you are driving us crazy!
Mits, hope you are having a safe trip home.
Deb, your pics were great. Sure glad you didn't go the bike rally in St. Louis asrea...it was nudies!!!
Will check back later...gotta get back on the heating pad.

NatureNut said...

Jo, Thx for info. Suzanne wrote me about the one chick that died last year & it got removed from nest when they came to band(ring).I figured since they had already done that this year, it's not impossible for them to get to this nest.Perhaps their policy is to let nature take it's course. If the cam was not there, we wouldn't know what happened. I may stop watching it if nothing is done to help----too painful to see that poor baby.

Costume Lady said...

Hey, I quit smoking 35 years ago. I drank coffee to get me through the tough times and exercised.
NOW, if I could just conquer this DRINKING problem, zzo epi;f jsbr oy ,sfr/ wpif dp,rp,r vp,r smf hry ,rzzzz/z? Margy, I need a designated driver, would you come and get me?

magpie said...

Adult Eagle roosting at Delta Cam - magnificent !

NatureNut said...

PS: Before I left work could still see that nest--it was almost 11 PM---and 2nd juvie was there for awhile but flew out & little one was in nest.

magpie said...

WANDA: IF YOU'RE SERIOUS, GIVE A HOLLER ! I'M STILL SOBER AND HAVE A FEW GOOD HOURS LEFT IN ME...!

XO

magpie said...

NATURE NUT: Which nest?
Finney's?

magpie said...

All that bar talk killed the Blog...

Loretta, I know your PS comment went with the Finney's nest, just was confused for a minute because it showed up right after my Delta Nest post..

Eagle STILL at roost at Delta..

xo

magpie said...

Waiting for the morning light at Finney's - is going to be a long wait...

magpie said...

There are TWO eagles at Delta!

magpie said...

Is this a replay video on Delta!
Someone help me out, the other bird looks too young to be Dawn or Dan....

magpie said...

I hope someone out there knows what's going on...there are two young birds and the adult...gonna have to read their blogs and see if I can find out ..feel like I am going crazy....!!!! I didn't even see the chicks for awhile, just thought Mom had showed up for a rest.
Man I feel stupid.....don't have to take that IQ test to feel this way...

magpie said...

Not so good news at Hobby Nest, one of the two chicks seems to have died sometime today, still checking for a confirmation on that. Chrissy had commented in an email that she thought this was happening...

Deb said...

I am home from watching the release of 5 osprey chicks today from the hacking tower at Lake Yankton. It was an awesome day, I thought I was only going to be there for awhile, but it turned into an all day event. Three of the osprey fledged today, the other two were still on the tower when I left. Seven more will be released on Thursday, then more on Friday or Saturday.

magpie said...

Blog says Delta is a replay of earlier days...sorry I didn't figure that out...was so excited to see the Adult there....way before I saw the chicks...sorry about all that....

Good news out your way, Deb, at least there is healthy life at the Hacking Tower...

Deb said...

At the top of the Wavelit page it says Eagles Nest Live REPLAY.

magpie said...

I posted this morning early or maybe emailed Chrissy, that the weather looked bad at Hobby Nest, Mom was on the babies tenting them..something went awry sometime after that...

Deb said...

I get to be a volunteer and help the next 3 weeks with spotting on the birds. I kept looking at the lady in charge, thinking that I knew her from somewhere. Well, the osprey are all from IDAHO! A light bulb went off, she is the lady that has Beauty.

magpie said...

Confirmed, one hobby chick remains.
Sounds like it was a really tough day on those watching things develop, maybe not enough food...or other factors...

NatureNut said...

Yes, Margy, I was talking about Finland osprey nest. Our messages crisscrossed.
DEB, how exciting---an Osprey Mom!!
How is Beauty doing??

Wanda, Don't get behind the wheel--Call 911!!!! LOL

magpie said...

Yah - we lost an hour while the blogger was acting up...Wanda...where are you....?

Costume Lady said...

MARGY, what's taking you so long? The drunker I sit here, the longer I get!

magpie said...

I think we're going to be pretty cloudy for ISS in the Eastern Panhandle...will still go look around 9:33 - from the West Northwest at 82-degrees...

Deb said...

Beauty is good, they are planning on the next step in October. She says they know they are bad at updates. After talking with her today, I can understand why she doesn't have time.

Mema Jo said...

Margie - check email

paula eagleholic said...

Deb - that's really cool about the osprey being released from the hack tower. I meant to say something yesterday. And you met the lady who has beauty...how cool is that....Did you get some pics?

paula eagleholic said...

Wanda - are you still at the bar?

magpie said...

Okay Mema, you too....

Hi Paula...

And everyone else. I am plowing through photographs looking for things and found some pics I took at NCTC last year and year before, mostly flowers...

Deb said...

Yes, Paula, I have pictures that I am downloading now. You know what is even stranger?? The eaglets that were rescued that you e-mailed me about are at her place in Idaho!

paula eagleholic said...

paula eagleholic said...

Wow Deb, isn't that cool.

Costume Lady said...

I am at home now. I was sitting at a bar, but wasn't having anything to drink! Karla (Butterfly Mama) is the Lounge Manager and secretary of the Moose Lodge. We took Dustin there to go home with his mom. Afterward, Gene and I went shopping and had dinner at the Red Panda in Winchester. We rode home on Route 11 and I enjoyed that so much. Green lawns and brightly colored flowers in all the yards. I think people are staying home due to the price of gas, and tending their lawns and flowers and it shows. Or maybe it is the surplus of rain we have had.

Costume Lady said...

Deb, I'm glad you have more photos coming. I loved your slideshow, but it didn't last long enough. You had everything on there that I love: animals, birds, flowers and waterfalls. MORE!

Deb said...

She wanted to know where they came from, so I got out the map and showed her. She is trying to decide where to release them, here or Idaho. If she does it in Idaho, she can release them near her place and it is also near an adult pair that is successful with raising eaglets. She asked our opinion. I told her it would be nice to bring them back, but that she should do what is best for the chicks.

I have to mow, I will be back later.

Mema Jo said...

Buddy is a 'cutie'

Thanks for the link to the pics

magpie said...

Mema - back to you, lady...

Can someone send me the pic that Sharon sent along of the Eagle this morning? I saw it with my own eyes but would like to see it again...
please and thanks....

magpie said...

Skies are clearing for ISS...

Ceil said...

I agree Jo. Buddy is a cutie. You can see how crooked his beak is in those pictures.

Costume Lady said...

It is daylight at Finny's nest and I see nothing but white down feathers.

Mema Jo said...

I am waiting for Deb to return from mowing....... She is really making connections! How about that gal!
Working the Hacking Towers with
Beauty's owner!

Mema Jo said...

Wanda

I dedicate this #100

to you as you deserve

a facial

Mema Jo said...

Hi Ceil! Do you think that your
sister made it safely home yet?

NatureNut said...

Wanda, I just looked at Finland nest too. He/she gone----just feathers left behind. Knew it was a sitting duck for a predator---probably owl.
Well it's out of it's misery, but I'm not out of mine. Can I meet you for a drink, Wanda??? ;>((((

NatureNut said...

Paula, the Buddy pics & videos are priceless--I've been emailing them.

Mema Jo said...

It is daylight at Finny's nest and I see nothing but white down feathers. Same Here Wanda...
No new nest notes either.

Paula - do your thing and email
BOB for an update if possible.

magpie said...

COSTUME LADY: Sounds like a wonderful night for you and the Captain....
I had the coffee pot going just in case I was headed to Berryville...!

God Bless all our Feathered Friends, wherever they may be.....

MITS said...

August 5
Mei Xiang slept in the den last night. Our volunteers observed 11 minutes of moving bamboo, nest building, and then eating the bamboo, beginning at 7:31 p.m. About half an hour later, Mei spent five minutes cradling the Kong toy, and toward the end of the hour, she had a three-minute episode of paw licking. Near midnight, she cradled her Kong toy for 31 minutes, and for 18 of those minutes she was also licking the Kong, her abdomen, and possibly her nipples. This was the most extensive behavior observed all night.

This morning, Mei came out to the training cage when called and participated calmly in the ultrasound procedure. Mei declined to hold her arm still for a blood sample, withdrawing it from the sleeve, and patiently waiting for her treats anyway, while remaining seated in the training cage. It is typical for her to be touchy about some of her training when she is “pregnant” however she was so relaxed, we decided to give it a try. Mei, in her quiet way, let us know it was not part of her plan.

Mei produced a nice fresh urine sample at 7:55 a.m. before calling it a day—on the rocks in exhibit three. She may have urinated again while defecating at 10:17 a.m. From the top of the rocks, it was difficult to confirm, as it all dropped into a pile of bamboo. She remained asleep in the enclosure and did not shift for the rest of the day. As I write this at 3:55 p.m., she is still asleep.

MITS said...

got home around 6:30 p.m., saw about 6 osprey on my way home, hubby and I went out to dinner, he is traveling for next 2 days, and I'm off to the zoo.

MITS said...

August 5

One urine sample collected at about eight this morning had a progestin value of about 34 ng/mg Cr. The progestin value today is still above baseline, and considering her behaviors, there is still hope that Mei Xiang’s reproductive cycle may end with a cub.

STILL OPTIMISTIC

Costume Lady said...

Margy, thanks for your concern. I don't think you will ever have to come and get me at a bar. You are such a sweetheart to offer.
LORETTA, come to our open house Oct. 18, and we can all have a drink together.

Mema Jo said...

WOW! Mits - still hope!
Maybe tomorrow when you're there!!!
Now wouldn't that just be awesome...

paula eagleholic said...

Margy, you have mail! :):)

MITS said...

BE STILL MY HEART:)

magpie said...

OKAY PAULA, YAHOO IS REALLY SLOW AND SO IS MY OTHER EMAIL PROGRAM, THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT IS QUICK TONIGHT..THANKS IN ADVANCE...AND THEN I'LL THANK YOU AGAIN WHEN I GET IT.
* * * * * * * * * * * * *
ISS WAS SPECTACULAR TONIGHT, FOLKS. BRIGHTER THAN JUPITER, STRAIGHT ACROSS FROM WEST TO EAST, ABOUT 2/3 OF THE WAY THROUGH IT FADED INTO RED AND DISAPPEARED. STILL LOOKED A LITTLE "DUI" TO ME.

XO

Mema Jo said...

Mei is off the bed - down in the
corner ....

Mema Jo said...

Where did Mei give birth to Tai...

Her birthing den?

MITS said...

Mei is digging around in the birthing den

magpie said...

WANDA: ANYTHING FOR YOU, LADY!
Now I have my coffee in my anyway...got to clean up the mess I made looking for photographs...
Grrrrrrrrrr !

We all have each other to carry us through these nest sadnesses...
Feather Spirits....

xo

MITS said...

in the exact spot she is in now, she gave birth to Tai

Mema Jo said...

I guess Mei was just getting in a comfortable position.... darn...

MITS said...

she looks uncomfortable

NatureNut said...

Couldn't see ISS---very cloudy. But I did see a nice white light----helicopter LOL

Mema Jo said...

NN- I am glad they didn't beam down on you and scoop you upward!!!

Mema Jo said...

LOL If Mei births that cub or cubs - They are going to shoot right
out!

MITS said...

Tai actually hit the wall when she shot him out....BOOM!!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

PRetty sun on Finny's nest

paula eagleholic said...

Bob saw the MT Finny nest too, and that's all.

Ceil said...

Mei is laying down now but keeps moving her back paw up and down. She is restless. What was so nice about the NZ cam is that once they brought it back up after Tai was born it was on 24/7. Never had any problems.

MITS said...

she is almost on her head....I really did like that they brought the cam back as soon as possible.....WITH SOUND!!!

Deb said...

I am in from mowing, only made it half way before I lost the light.

MITS said...

my nerves are shot....hoping tonight is the night, but I know in my heart..."it is what it is", and God will do His Will!

Ceil said...

Going to watch her for awhile and then go to bed. Have a good night everyone. Prayer for those in need.

magpie said...

No ISS Wednesday but back out again Thursday..I'll post the time and directionals Thursday morning..

That Panda looks like a big balloon !

xo

NatureNut said...

Jo, that would have been a trip!Aliens from Andrews???
Been watching Mei, too. If she did have cub while ago it would have shot right into that cement wall like Tai butterstick!

paula eagleholic said...

Is Hopkins on Wed nights?

Deb - I kinda thought it was late to mow!

paula eagleholic said...

Mits - that is funny about Tai hitting the wall!

MITS said...

Hopkins is Thursday night, this will be the last one, Paula

NatureNut said...

Think Hopkins is on THUR.

Gonna watch some TV--Good Good Night to those leaving us.

MITS said...

she looks like a shrimp, laying like that

Mema Jo said...

They have Mei on both cams - just different angles.

MITS said...

tee-hee, she still reminds me of a curled up shrimp

Floralgirl said...

Did Wanda ever come back from the bar??

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks Mits and Nature...guess that's why I have missed some...just waiting for my reminder! :)

MITS said...

yeah, she made it back, Megan, how was DC?

Floralgirl said...

Better than last week..

MITS said...

GOOD!!!!!!Maybe people are going to stay in town....beach has been very crowded, people aren't worried about paying gas....all the SUV's, and big pickup trucks and vans...most from PA, NY, and NJ......

MITS said...

Mei is back up on the platform bed...never mind just came back down to the floor

MITS said...

I am tired...and am going to bed...Good luck sweet Mei, if you happen to deliver...GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE

Floralgirl said...

COUNTDOWN TO THE PERSEIDS: The annual Perseid meteor shower peaks one week from today, on Tuesday, August 12th. The best time to look is during the dark hours before dawn on Tuesday morning when forecasters expect 50 to 100 meteors per hour. Get away from city lights if you can; plan a camping trip! The darker the sky, the more meteors you will se

Mema Jo said...

Can we all camp out in your garden?

Floralgirl said...

Sure!!

Mema Jo said...

Do you rent tents?

That would be so awesome to see!

Floralgirl said...

UH, BYOT!!

paula eagleholic said...

Tent party at Megan's!

Night all!

Mema Jo said...

No Problem!

Glad market went ok today.. hope it keeps up that way until it's time to stop going down. Corn maze time coming soon for you!

Mema Jo said...

Night Paula.......

Floralgirl said...

Yep, already booked a school field trip last week..

Costume Lady said...

Megan, a quick question...do you plant your Tansys in sun or shade?

Mema Jo said...

Hoping that Lolly and family are safe. Perhaps they did come home early due to the storm. Vacations
aren't any fun with RAIN WIND and
POWER OUTAGES! Especially with small children......

Floralgirl said...

Tansy is growing in full sun. Off to catch some zzzz'S...

Mema Jo said...

Mema Jo said...

Wanda - what is "Tansys"

Floralgirl said...

Tansy is a perennial herb- can be very invasive- grows 4-5 feet tall, has clusters of small button like yellow flowers in the summer. nite

magpie said...

Oh wonderful, Megan, on the Perseids...they are good ones...and there will be no big moon to compete with....I will have to be clocking in at 0800 Tues morning but what the heck! I'll take a huge panda nap beforehand and find a place to camp out...you might have to do the same if you have market Tuesday...thanks for the info on the peak time!

magpie said...

Bird on the nest at Finney's - parent or chick? can't tell..

Mema Jo said...

It is a chick, I think. Someone once said that the chicks' feathers have the scalloped white ends on them.

Mema Jo said...

I am signing off for the day....
I've been watching for Deb to come back on - bet she is going through all those wonderful pics!

Good Night Everyone
Peace to you & yours
Pleasant dreams and restful sleep
Prayers being said for all our needs.. especially for Mason's recovery... ((hugs))

magpie said...

and one on the nest at Over the Water Finland nest as well...
and a Ferry Boat just went from left to right...

magpie said...

Thanks, Mema, cause the one at the Water nest does not have the white edges and we know those are adults..
I know you might be on the pillows already but thanks anyway...
xo

Mema Jo said...

You're welcome!

magpie said...

Good Night, and God Bless Us, Every One.

Costume Lady said...

I am feeling so sorry for Lolly. She and her family were going to Padre Island and had to scrap that trip because of hurricane "Dolly", and planned to go to Galveston as a second choice. Now Eduard is probably sending them home early. Hope they had a nice time before the winds and rain came. As Jo said, she'll have a lot to tell us when she gets home.

Costume Lady said...

OK, MEGAN, now I know why my Tansys aren't doing well. I have them in shade. I will water them well and move them to a sunny spot tomorrow. Thanks

Costume Lady said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR WELLNESS & HEALING

movin said...

GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY.

Keep warm, keep well, keep moving....


Jim

movin said...

You might know it, but I don't see a comment on the Finnish eyass.

I just opened the site, and it appears some bird ... perhaps the original White-tailed Eagle ... has killed and fed on the injured chick.

There are white feathers strewn around the nest and not much else of the chick still visible.

Merciful in the long run, since the little guy didn't have a chance anymore.

Did anyone see it??


Jim

NatureNut said...

Jim, It happened in the dark. I doubt if sea eagle could see good then. My guess is an owl.

Deb said...

I am off, too. I got through all 267 pictures to see what to keep, etc. I got it down pretty good, but now I am tired. I will finish and post tomorrow night. Off to osprey watch tomorrow.

NatureNut said...

I was looking for news statement too before I shut down 'puter.

Oh well, such is nature. :>(

Good Night

movin said...
