Good morning Steve and thanks!
I see I missed a nest visit. So glad the cam is back up!
Thanks Steve and Sharon! I was looking in my butterfly cage- all the remaining chrysalis are hatching this morning, 4 monarchs and 1 black swallowtail. Not a very sunny day to hatch.
Good morning again, everyone. Thanks, Sher, for the heads up. I have a very, very wet squirrel and an equally wet cardinal out here.
Mei and Tian are wrestlin' again this morning. I think she is already sick of him, though.
MEGAN...what does the chrysalis of the Swallowtail look like. Is it similar to the Monarch?
They are not as pretty as a monarch chrysalis swallowtail picturesscroll down to bottom of page for chrysalis pics.
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE....WAKE UP MASON, THE SUN IS SHINING FOR YOU
EAGLE ALERT, OUR NEST!
I think that is our gorgeous Belle in the nest again!! Yeah!
I keep missing Mei and Tian together

I put butterfly pics up on my blog...
Very nice pics, Megan!Wanda - I finally checked yours out also...very nice! Love GG on the porch, too.
Sissy, can you get on the NZ panda cam??
I don't know if anyone has heard of the baby bear in CA that was rescued from the Lake Tahoe fire....he's gonna get a webcam soon. Here's the link to the blog they've been keeping on him. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the story from the beginning. Lil Smokey
poor little fellow, or I should say lucky guy, for the good people taking care of him
He's still really small....thought they got bigger quicker than that!
Aawww...he looks like Little Bear..
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 05:00 PM, A quick update. Mason's surgery was A+ successful. The shunt will bring the ventricle tubes exactley where the docs want them. He is now off of the critical list. Serious but stable!We are very happy right now. All of the families are invited to the Orioles White Sox game tonight with A barbecue on the field at 5:00. We are going their to celebrate. See ya! Thanks to all.Love BEE and SYL.
Well now! Buddy & Mason's prayers and positive thoughts have worked so well. Let's keep it up!!
Love all the butterfly pics ..I have even seen Margie the Butterfly of GeeGee's out fluttering in my back yard and right up on mydeck!
Message from Anne MarieMy computer is down and I can not open or send emails. Sorry, I will get back to you as soon as its fixed.
EAGLE CAM STILL NOT UP TO DATE:(
All you Butterfly BuffsButterfly Quiz
ok, guess I know nothing about butterflies:(
I know nothing about butterflies either. Too bad cam is frozen, I wanted another eagle fix. We saw an adult eagle fly over today, but it didn't stick around, just flew right on by.
The butterfly quiz was on Lisa's "KIDS" page from Blackwater. You can guess at the answers until you get it right - then the puzzle will appear. Fun way to learn. Lots of other quizes - Osprey Quiz is there.
oooh..I got 100% right...
Happy birthday, Capt. Gene. I hope you are having a great day!
Took me awhile, Megan but I finally got the correct answers and the beautiful puzzle pic came up!
Found a good journal on the NCTC site concerning our Eagles! Winter 2008 thru June 2008
Evening, all!See the cam is still stuck, so I'll guess we'll miss Lib and Belle tonight. Waiting patiently for the rain!Gonna go walk the dogs...BBL
Aah, hadn't checked that in awhile...thanks Jo
Is everyone watching Law & Order?
I'm watching CSI re-runs on Spike TV.....watching for Dog the Bounty Hunter to come on:)
Project Runway at 9 for me...as soon as hubby falls asleep on the couch and can't complain about it...
Evening everyone!!!!Loved the butterfly Quiz & Megan & Wanda's pictures! Saw a painted lady at work (I don't have a photo of one), so went in to get camkera & of course she wouldn't pose!!Had heard about the Little Smokey Bear in CA---hope he heals OK. & new Buddy report is good..they didn't say if he got larger enclosure yet.If I ever get new pics on blog, we got the Tamarin Twins on parent's back!! Cute and lovely color.Gotta eat---been checking out 'puter. Calling anti-virus co. tomorrow---dreaded adware has not popped on yet tonight.
Another update on Mason from his Dad
I just heard the wonderful sound of rain and checked the radar. I think that little bit is all we are going to get. We could sure use a nice all night soaker.
I'm hoping Fay will give us some Deb...just a couple of wayward sprinkles so far
It does call for about 3 or 4 rainy days but don't know about how steady it will be. I'm still doing the Rain Dance!
Wow, still raining here and I checked the radar again, it seems to be building. I hope it keeps up. We had so much rain before, and now we are having a bad dry spell. Grass fires in western SD this week. I hope Fay brings you all a nice rain, too, Paula.
STILL not a drop of rain here...threatened all afternoon, but still waiting!! Rain dance...Sure looks strange to see our nest in daylight at nighttime!!! Spidey can't mess us up this way---LOL!
Good Evening to everyone, loved all the new things on the Blog today, Megan's baby Butterfly pictures (great photos!) the site for Smokey (loved the way the Firefighter imitated his wailing) the Buddy site, Catalina updates, and everyone's cheery greetings, and especially the good news regarding Mason. If you go to the guestbook there is an entry with several websites you can access regarding the details of the accident and other events.Still waiting for rain here...xo
Captain Eagle: It is still your birthday! Hope it has been a wonderful day for you and your family....xo
Lynn That is a good point you made about Spidey!!! lol
Yes, Lynn, good point. Well, those eagles might be sneaking in and being cozy and they will have total privacy....Foggy morning at Finney's Water nest...maybe a few Sea Eagles will show up again, or Hooded Crows,...sure haven't seen any Ospreys lately.Getting ready for another Midnight shift.Hope all is well with everyone tonight.xo
have a good shift, Margy...drive safe...TTUT

DEB - Nice Osprey and Eagle Picture! NATURE NUT: Glad you got to see an Eagle today.MEMA: Glad you got to see the GeeGee/Margy Butterfly..Maybe she will visit all the Momsters and Dadsters before heading to Mexico.Take Care all, and Big Prayers all around.xo
Hope you have a good night, Margy!Jo, any music preferences for your soldiers yet?
