Good morning Steve and thanks!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I see I missed a nest visit. So glad the cam is back up!

Floralgirl said...

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.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning again, everyone. Thanks, Sher, for the heads up. I have a very, very wet squirrel and an equally wet cardinal out here.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mei and Tian are wrestlin' again this morning. I think she is already sick of him, though.

Costume Lady said...

MEGAN...what does the chrysalis of the Swallowtail look like. Is it similar to the Monarch?

Floralgirl said...

They are not as pretty as a monarch chrysalis swallowtail pictures
scroll down to bottom of page for chrysalis pics.

hoodies at Finland water nest

Hedgie said...

Thanks, Jim...I had forgotten to check in on Buddy lately. No mention made of the device...I hope that is good news!

Hedgie said...

Our cam seems to be stuck at 10:49...can't get it to refresh. Wonder if we've had any more visits?!

MITS said...

hmmm, I see that, Lynn

NatureNut said...

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Capt. Eagle Gene!!!!!
39 TOO!!!

Very cloudy down here, but don't know if we'll get any rain.Here at Exhibit Office saw Mom deer & 2 spotties, and teenage groundhog.
Back to work....

paula eagleholic said...

I see it now too, Lynn. Will shoot an email to Steve.

Floralgirl said...

I put butterfly pics up on my blog...

paula eagleholic said...

Very nice pics, Megan!

Wanda - I finally checked yours out also...very nice! Love GG on the porch, too.

MITS said...

Sissy, can you get on the NZ panda cam??

paula eagleholic said...

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

MITS said...

poor little fellow, or I should say lucky guy, for the good people taking care of him

paula eagleholic said...

He's still really small....thought they got bigger quicker than that!

Floralgirl said...

Aawww...he looks like Little Bear..

Mema Jo said...

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.

Mema Jo said...

Well now! Buddy & Mason's prayers and positive thoughts have worked so well. Let's keep it up!!

Mema Jo said...

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 my
deck!

Mema Jo said...

Message from Anne Marie

My computer is down and I can not open or send emails. Sorry, I will get back to you as soon as its fixed.

MITS said...

EAGLE CAM STILL NOT UP TO DATE:(

Mema Jo said...

All you Butterfly Buffs


Butterfly Quiz

MITS said...

ok, guess I know nothing about butterflies:(

Deb said...

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.

Mema Jo said...

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.

Floralgirl said...

oooh..I got 100% right...

Deb said...

Happy birthday, Capt. Gene. I hope you are having a great day!

Mema Jo said...

Took me awhile, Megan but I finally got the correct answers and the beautiful puzzle pic came up!

Mema Jo said...

Found a good journal on the NCTC site concerning our Eagles!


Winter 2008 thru June 2008

paula eagleholic said...

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

paula eagleholic said...

Aah, hadn't checked that in awhile...thanks Jo

Mema Jo said...

Is everyone watching Law & Order?

MITS said...

I'm watching CSI re-runs on Spike TV.....watching for Dog the Bounty Hunter to come on:)

Floralgirl said...

Project Runway at 9 for me...as soon as hubby falls asleep on the couch and can't complain about it...

NatureNut said...

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.

Mema Jo said...


Another update on Mason from his Dad

Deb said...

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.

paula eagleholic said...

I'm hoping Fay will give us some Deb...just a couple of wayward sprinkles so far

Mema Jo said...

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!

Deb said...

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.

Hedgie said...

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!

magpie said...

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...

magpie said...

Captain Eagle: It is still your birthday! Hope it has been a wonderful day for you and your family....

xo

Mema Jo said...

Lynn That is a good point you made about Spidey!!! lol

magpie said...

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

MITS said...

have a good shift, Margy...drive safe...TTUT

MITS said...

turning out the lights...GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE;)!!! MASON TIME TO WAKE UP, ITS ALMOST LABOR DAY

magpie said...

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

Hedgie said...

Hope you have a good night, Margy!
Jo, any music preferences for your soldiers yet?

Hedgie said...

Good night, Helen! Are you getting rain??

magpie said...

Thanks MITS -
We almost had a baby delivery overnight, that's always exciting!
But the Mom and Dad mde it to the hospital in time.

Nighty night all, maybe we'll get that rain overnight...

xo

Mema Jo said...

Lynn - Family get together this Saturday afternoon - I may get our info then!

Mema Jo said...

Calling it a day....

Good Night everyone and

Hedgie said...

Good night all! Dream rain!!

paula eagleholic said...

Been up in the kitchen working on dinner for tomorrow night...shish-ka-bobs....and cut up fruit for fruit salad.

Mema Jo said...

Got it.... Nite All.

Costume Lady said...

This has been an exciting day. Capt. Gene bought me a car for HIS birthday. We had a great day...GeeGee baked him a Zucchini Bread and iced it. Grandaughter trimmed it. It was a sweet surprise. He was overwhelmed at your Birthday greetings, saying you all are really special. He will thank you all when I let him have the mouse. LOL

Costume Lady said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL....MASON, YOU ARE GOING TO AWAKEN SOON AND WILL BE SO SURPRISED AT ALL THE NEW FRIENDS YOU HAVE.

Lolly said...

Happy Birthday to Capt. Gene from Texas. Hope it was a great day for you!

Have been busy today refinishing some furniture. Then tonight I was watching the convention.

Thanks for the Buddy update and the news on Lil Smokey!

Nite all!

paula eagleholic said...

Sounds like a nice day for Gene.

Gnite all!

Wake up Mason, even tho it's after midnight!

Robyn said...

Good morning everyone, I see we are finally getting some much needed rain. It sure is a steady rain here.

I hope everyone had a fine summer, school for Tori is back in session, her freshman year and so far she loves it, until the homework starts rolling in I'm sure. Now that I awake before the sun and Tori I have time to hop in.

Looking forward to catching up

Floralgirl said...

yes, slow but steady rain here..we really need rain badly!! Cam is still not working right, stuck on yesterdays pic.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning all. I see we still have no cam! :(
