normabyrd said...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mei and Tian love to wrestle for a while but I think she gets sick of him pretty quick.

MITS said...

and she gets sick of him fast, he loves to play...I just don't like it when they get ruff, Tian always ends up the one getting hurt

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

What was it Mommy used to say "It's all fun and games till someone gets hurt".

MITS said...

Mommy was a smart lady, Sissy

magpie said...

Okay Eagle Buds, I have tried to make my contribution to the Eagle Society this morning...put up a new album on the Momsters Photo Albums page, is entitled

"Summer/Autumn 2008 NCTC Eagle Photos,"
is on the last page, right after SEA EAGLES.

Double E-Sharon and I hatched the plan this morning...IT'S OPEN TO ALL TO ADD...I might have to clean mine up a little, as I am such a NEWBIE ! but it's a pretty cool little slide show....

magpie said...

Now, with a little Randy Travis "Worship and Faith" to get me going for the REST of the day, gotta find something RED to wear.

Take Care All.

Your friend, Magpie !! xo

Friday, September 5
Lun Lun and the cub are still doing great, and the cub weighed 165.4 grams at his most recent exam. One thing I find quite interesting is that Lun Lun seems to prefer the left side of her nest box just as she did with Mei Lan, she spends most of her time curled up with the cub in this location. Although, occasionally she moves over to the center of the nest box, within several minutes she always shifts back to her favorite corner.

Good morning everyone. Have that silly computer training this morning but host is late so have a minute to pop in and say Hi. Loved the pictures from this mornings visit. I think they are preparing the nest for their own very special visitors in Oct.

magpie said...

Have a good day, GLO - So nice to "see" you, and everyone else this morning..

Nest Update

09/05/08:
We've now seen two bald eagles on the nest with some food. We also briefly saw a lone osprey, but it could be a bird that is migrating through.

Also, visit our Eagle Cam page to see a recent photo of our adults on the nest.

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning - It has taken me a while to get through emails upon emails and then tried to catch up with comments since I signed off last night!
Thanks so much for all the pics of this mornings nest activities.
I have a feeling that they have been there fixing things up - Like Glo says they are sprucing up for Oct visit from all the Momsters!

Update from Mason's Mom & Dad just minutes ago

Deb said...

Good morning, everyone. I slept in this morning and really needed that. I am still a little tired. I am not going over to the lake until later today. It is sprinkling here, I hope we get some good moisture.

Mema Jo said...

I smell Bacon! Two of my daughters are fixing Brunch! I have been invited! Would I say NO to my daughters - I'm out of here!

Mits, Have a safe journey home. Let us know when you arrive.
I'll touch base in the afternoon hours.

See you later if you don't leave before I return

Mema Jo said...

Norma - have a great heritage
weekend there in Romney!

MITS said...

THANKS, JO....Just got word that our property manager has requested we remove out outdoor furniture, so all the bun-geeing I did yesterday was for nought.....outside to bring in furniture:)

normabyrd said...

THREE PART MORNIN'----MOVIN'JIM---DEB---& JO!!!----------DEB---Keep the rain we don't WANT ANY RAIN until Mon.----ho!----send it on then!!!--

Deb said...

Sometime next week, I will be getting back to normal. We think our birds have started their journey down the river. :( It is scary to see them go, but instinct and nature tell them when to leave. We only could account for 6 osprey yesterday.

Have a good brunch, Jo.

Deb said...

I'll try, Norma. We need the rain here, so it would be nice if it stayed!

movin said...

Thanks for the link to Mason's site, Mema Jo.

Wow, that song-poem that Gloria Estevan (sp?) and her husband wrote is really some basic soul stuff...beautiful.

movin said...

Frodocam still doesn't show much action; BUT the Alcoa nest, which is in the far southeastern corner of AU, has just come on-line again ... although their pair laid the first egg on Aug 29th. Guess they waited until the third egg was laid to flick the cam on.

I'll put the bluie link below.

MITS said...

thanks, Deb, not sure, there really aren't too many people here this week...not sure when I am leaving, might wait til later today and stop in Annapolis for dinner, hubby is out of town til later tonight, so no hurry getting back to the city:)

MITS said...

thanks, Sissy:)we have been thru this many times, the nor'easters are worse, because they stay around longer

movin said...

MITS said...

yes, Jim up to date on Finney's nest, thanks for the Alcoa site, pretty pink nesting box

MITS said...

No, Jim ,not this time, although I would love too, would take me about 25 mins of the main RT 50, so once I get going, don't want to side track til I get over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

Ceil said...

Good morning everyone. Thanks Jim for the update on the Channel Island eagles. Great pictures from Cedrick and Stephanie. Love the Alcoa nest.

All righty Mits, head on outta there and try to beat some of the traffic...

That's a pretty heavy duty weather forecast for the nest few days for this area...

Safe Afternoon, all..

magpie said...

HEDGIE: I think the Picking and Grinning Event at the Lazy A is going to be more like Slippin' and Slidin'. Unfortunate when something like that happens....

Panda Nap time for me...up late and up early jammin' with OUR Eagles..

xo TTFN, All xo

magpie said...

The updates at BWO and BWE, with the photo captures, are really cool.

That has always been such a great site...

z z z z z z z

Hedgie said...

Good afternoon, eagle buds. Panda nap sounds good to me, Margy!
Don't think we'll go tomorrow!! Sunday sounds okay, tho', so will spend some time there then!
Missed all the action this morning....'puter nowhere near bathroom, so couldn't glimpse while getting ready to go out, so never saw our beauties. Thanks for capturing pics!
Better check e-mail before my eyes close. BBL!

Hedgie said...

Safe trip, Mits!
Ceil, do you have any pics from your trip??

Hedgie said...

Candy....wherefore art thou Candy? Battened down, safe and sound? Hope so!

wvgal_dana said...

My comments were stuck for awhile. Have to catch up from #59.

Jim thanks for the Alcoa site.

Afternoon all eagle friends and cam watchers.

Just seen on news for Vero Beach, Fl. this is the time for the sea turtles nesting. The winds and waves (from storm) are taking a toll on their poor nest; so sad.

wvgal_dana said...

From CT Osprey nest:

Sept. 2, 2008:
It's not over yet!
At least one Osprey chick is still hanging around the nest (see photo at right, taken today). We believe the 2 adults and its 3 siblings may have already departed on their southbound migration.

Maybe we'll get to see "Oscar" my seagull showing up there. Like last season he really enjoyed that nest. As a lot of you know and seen.

movin said...

There's a Buddy update under the "Rehab" heading this afternoon.

Mema Jo said...

Mema Jo said...

Whoa! Nilla! My comment just published and there you were. I agree that these hurricanes are getting out of hand! Friends in FL are getting ready to put up the shutters!

Take care! I was reading comments and now it is time to put some food on the table... BBL

paula eagleholic said...

Heading home and then going out tonight...probably catch ya'll tomorrow!

wvgal_dana said...

Jim you are the man with the updates for information. Thank you again. Neat how Nethy & Deshar just love the UK and don't seem to want to leave yet.

wvgal_dana said...

Ok Paula enjoy your evening.

Well hello there Nilla ( : Nice you stopping by. Oh bet your not up at home yet...your probably working hard. No Jessie today?

You know there are wonderful people in this group. That would answer the call and send up prayers as you needed for your daughter.

Yep they hopefully will be out of there by the time you go to Disney. ( :

wvgal_dana said...

I couldn't do a panda nap but did lay down and just rest. To much of headache from bump on my noggen I guess. I'll sleep later tonight. ( :

wvgal_dana said...

Not sure but hoping people I know that leave end of next week for Captiva, Fl. Hopefully will still be able to fly and enjoy. If it looks like any hurricanes that way they will cancel for sure.

wvgal_dana said...

Doesn't look too good for Carolina....but could go anywhere prayers for all areas.

NillaWafer said...

Hi Dana, yes tomarrow might be a bad one with hard rain and big winds. I checked on the new panda and is there a live view cam link to watch her or they dont have one?

wvgal_dana said...

GGGGGGOOOOOO
BBBEEAAVVVERRSSS!!!!!

wvgal_dana said...

They did have the baby panda and Lun Lun on cam live. Since they had to take baby from Mom I think it was on Monday. Put baby in incubator but out and back with mom and doing well. I think they are just waiting and giving mom and baby less stress.

wvgal_dana said...

Here Nilla Friday, September 5
Lun Lun and the cub are still doing great, and the cub weighed 165.4 grams at his most recent exam.

bbl fixing dinner

Red said...

I think I'll be lazy tonight and get Chinese carry out. Haven't had Chinese since the Olympics. lol

Hedgie said...

That was cute, Red! Enjoy.
I am asking all to please watch the Stand Up for Cancer show tonight...8pm east coast...not sure what exactly they are planning to do, but have to say that there IS life after cancer, there is not enough research funding (especially for lung) and since almost everyone will be affected at some point, whether it is self, family or friend, it is important to be informed! TY!!

Hedgie said...

Dana, did the Finney pic come through the 2nd time around?? If not, I'll send it to your other e-mail address!

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie, you could put the pic in the album of Sea Eagles that was started on the Momsters site.

Also I have heard from Diane & she isn't attending Open House but plans next season to be at our Nest Visit and plans to stay lots longer! I gave her our cares and concerns!

magpie said...

Howdy Friday Evening Eagle Buds:

If you have a chance, look at the picture of the two eagles on the main page, the Second thread picture: check out the Eagle on the right....can you really "see" the lower part of the body? Looks like a head, part of the upper back, one talon: and then, almost ghostly "transparency" - - I have been fascinated by this impression !

For example: Where is its tail?

Heading out for something...will try to catch some of that show HEDGIE - thanks for the alert. Got something on email this week for the American Cancer Society, and just found out today that a friend has lung cancer...

Safe Evening All...

MEMA - How was the Bacon? My grandson can eat a whole pound all pretty much in one "sitting" as long as it's cooked nice and crisp!

xo

Anne-Marie said...

Hi all I'm popping in and then out. I am now a great garndma. wow am I old...... His name is Isaac and he is 71/2 lbs. Lots of black hair and pretty.Have a dinner date. Ta-ta...

Lolly said...

Good evening all!

Great pictures of our two eagles. Thanks! Sorry I missed their "show".

Mits, hope you are home safe and sound. Probably a good thing that the outdoor furniture is in.

Congratulations Anne Marie on being a Great Grandma. WOW!

Mowed the lawn today. Now this evening I have to bake Jacob's 4th birthday cake. Tomorrow I decorate it. It is a "Tigger" cake. Sunday we party as his birthday is actually Monday. Busy weekend!

Time to start dinner. BBL

paula eagleholic said...

Howdy, all.

Don't want anyone to worry if you don't see me on here this weekend. I have to go down to my Mom's and help her with some things. She is having some health issues and will need to be admitted to the hospital for some tests...so I am going down tonight and get some things done for her before she goes into the hospital.

Everyone stay safe and dry!

Hedgie said...

Thanks for info from Diane, Jo. I'll see if I can figure out how to add to the album. Takes me awhile to learn some of these computer tricks!
Congrats on your new arrival, Anne Marie. A great-grand is Grand!! Are you wearing the red dress for your date???
Margy, if your friend needs someone to talk to, feel free to have her/him contact me. Nothing like the voice of "been there, done that"!!!!

Hedgie said...

Paula, best wishes to your mom for a good outcome. Have a safe trip! Don't get wet!!

NatureNut said...

Congrats Anne-Marie!!! You're Too young!! Me too--step-grt Gma for hubby's side of family!

Thx everyone for all the great news links today. Buddy, the miracle bird, and Babylanta are doing well.
Raining lightly here--got home early-wanted to get new bush planted before all the rain.Of course I ran into the wonderful yellow clay & rocks!Had to dig even more out to line the hole w/good top soil. I'm pooped!
But I did get crab legs to eat!!!!

NatureNut said...

Hope everyone has battened down the hatches & Helen has a good trip home.
Any word from Candy?
Nilla, sorry to hear they have no power still in LA!

In case power is out tomorrow, thought I should get the celebratory avatar on tonight! ;>)

NatureNut said...

Paula, thoughts & prayers for your Mom.

Ceil said...

I was getting concerned and called Mits. She got home a little while ago and is setting the computer up now. Congrats Anne-marie. Prayers for your mom Paula.

Ceil said...

Ceil said...

I am going to call it a night. We had steamed crabs tonight.

wvgal_dana said...

MITS said...

Hi Ya!!!! :) made it back, no real traffic coming home, til I got to the Washington Beltway, what's new, it always has traffic....Paula, prayers for your Mom!

MITS said...

wvgal_dana said...

Hedgie I have been waiting all day for someone to notice that pic. This morning when lots were watching the eagle show. I believe Sharon may have sent pics to Steve. I didn't know what pic if any he would post. So when he posted that one. I've been just waiting for someone to see what YOU said you see. Otherwise I was going to send it to all because it is such a different pic than usual.

wvgal_dana said...

A friend of my husbands had lung cancer years ago. They operatored and he has done well. This past year they some a different place on his lungs which again was lung cancer. He had the operation and some chemo and is doing great again. Praise God!!

Margy Prayers for your friend and all those touched by cancer!
Mits Glad you're home and that the trip was uneventful.

MITS said...

Hedgie said...

Dana, I'm confused!! The pic I sent and commented on was the Sea Eagles at Finney over water nest> Now I've got to go back and look at the Steve posted to see what you are referring to!! LOL.
I am a 40 month survivor of lung cancer! Yea, me!!

Lolly said...

Went back and looked at the profile picture. Spooky! That one has no body! Where do all those fish go?

Paula....prayers for your mom.

Hedgie said...

Okay...are you talking about the one on the left looking like he/she is grinning, Dana??? Yeppers, I see it!!

Mema Jo said...

The picture for this thread and I think Margy took it -
Liberty in the rear
Belle in the front (as usual)
You see Liberty's head and left foot
You see the full image of Belle
At Belle's head you can see Liberty's
tail tuck down..... Right by Belle's beak you can see some of the white feathers of Liberty's tail...

Mema Jo said...

YEAH YOU LYNN!!!!

Now I have to find my Sea Eagle pic!
I think everyone is confusing everyone else! lol

Hedgie said...

I thought the show was well done. A little sad, but a lot of glad there, too! And some humor. Stand up 2 cancer!! Wouldn't it be great if they could raise as much money as Jerry Lewis did this past weekend...$63 million!?!?

MITS said...

He has the midas touch, Lynn

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, I am sitting here watching 3 deer in the yard. Buphals wanted to go outside. I opened the door very quietly and somewhere out there a skunk has sprayed! YUCK! Buphals didn't linger long and came right back in. Don't think he could stand the smell! He never did see the deer.

Hedgie said...

Dana, sent you my Finney's capture via your e-mail address!

Kind of like M C Escher...

It is crazy, isn't it?

Yes, two different pics we are talking about, the Sea Eagles at Water Nest Finney that HEDGIE posted a few days ago that Dana can't open yet, and the the

Floralgirl said...

Mason news-There is a fundraiser for Mason at The Greene Turtle Restaurant in Frederick." Have A Meal for Mason" My niece Claire Ellsworth (Mason's cousin) is hosting this event Monday, September 8th, 4:00 to 9: P.M. See if you can grab a flyer to participate in the event. Thank you Claire! We love you! Phone for the Greene Turtle 301 698 1979
Today is Friday and I am with Mason right now. The occupational therapist was here. We sat him up on the bed, when she tried to take his socks off he pulled his leg back . He thought it was Sylvia going to tickle his feet again. We work on a little balance, some focus and then get him in the chair. I know the nurses are thankful he's built like a toothpick.

Mema Jo said...

It's great to know that Lord & Lady Blackwater still visit their nest just like Liberty & Belle do.

MITS said...

well that is really nice, Megan.....do you know where the original Green Turtle got started???:)

Mema Jo said...

I have almost given up on Frodo & Freida for this season. I think we will need to go with the Alcoa site in Australia with Havoc and Sheila and their 3 eggs!
Really glad Jim found that site.

Hedgie said...

No rain here yet.
GLad you made it home okay, Helen. Where did you stop to eat?
Margie, your friend is too young for the beast!!
Glad you and your grandson enjoyed your bacon...m-m-m-m good!
Mason, wake up and smell the bacon!

Floralgirl said...

Mema Jo said...

Margy didn't have bacon
But I did with my 2 daughters today..
One of the little ones calls it
Candy Bacon!

Floralgirl said...

We have had blt's for dinner three nights in a row- so many tomatoes in the garden, we had to use them up.
I found 8 swallowtail caterpillars on my parsley today. Tiny ones and 3 pretty big ones. Also found about 6 monarch caterpillars. Filled up my butterfly cage again with them, kids(and adults) love it when I bring the cage to mkt. so they can check out the 'cats'.

MITS said...

are you going to mkt. tomorrow, Megan....have you been in DC?

Floralgirl said...

Man, now I am hungry for bacon.. too late for that, have to fry some more tomorrow. Off to sleep, long day, tomorrow may be interesting weatherwise...
Wake up Mason, I'm frying bacon in the morning!!

Floralgirl said...

No mkt. for me tomorrow, provided flowers for two events being held tomorrow, hopefully weather will be good on Sunday. Haven't been to DC in 2 weeks..

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Mema Jo said...

Prayers going out especially for Candy on the Outer Banks and anyone in harm's way of the storms!

MITS said...

Hedgie said...

Goodnight, Sharon. Sorry your team lost. I know how it feels!

Atlanta Zoo has 3 lion cubs..short clip of one of them.. There isn't any cam. The female Kiki gave birth to three live and two still-born cubs

magpie said...

Yup - MEMA was the Bacon Lady today...wish I had been !
I think the Morning Eagles went to Betty's Restaurant for Bacon.

Night Megan, glad you won't have to slosh around going to Charles Town Saturday.

Prayers, going to be ongoing with the next few storms coming out of the Atlantic....
Some places in Louisiana won't have power for three to four weeks!

MEGAN: I could eat BLTs 3 times a day, 7 days a week...During the tomato "scare" you could get "BLs" at restaurants..without the "T."

Good Night Everyone heading for the Feather Pillows...

I was on that site looking for info
on Buta Buta's b-day party & I can't find zilch. Waiting for Loretta to tell us where she found the picture because it looks as though she already celebrated with her cake

MITS said...

Jo, that just looks like they super-imposed Buta over the 2

MITS said...

I got my Atlanta zoo, newsletter today, but didn't pay any attention to it...

Sorry it was Margy that noticed the picture I was talking about. This is part of what Margy wrote:

Howdy Friday Evening Eagle Buds:

If you have a chance, look at the picture of the two eagles on the main page, the Second thread picture: check out the Eagle on the right....can you really "see" the lower part of the body? Looks like a head, part of the upper back, one talon: and then, almost ghostly "transparency" - - I have been fascinated by this impression !

For example: Where is its tail?

Happy 2nd Birthday, Mei Lan!






Join us on Saturday, September 6 for a day full of panda-centric festivities at Mei Lan’s 2nd Birthday Celebration. Special activities run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation Giant Panda Conservation Center.

Wish Mei Lan well with refreshments,
(while supplies last);
Find out what her keepers have dreamed up for this year’s birthday enrichment surprise;
Party with honored guest Zhu Zhu;
Catch up with Mei Lan’s care staff with exclusive keeper talks;
Take home a Mei Lan giveaway while supplies last!
What better way to honor Mei Lan than to send a measurable thanks to the heroes who risked their lives protecting giant pandas at the Wolong Nature Reserve during China’s devastating earthquake? Zoo Atlanta will announce total funds collected for the China Earthquake Relief Fund during the birthday bash.


Jo, I found this on their site:)

magpie said...

That's okay, DANA - think we have all been speed-reading today! Can't remember who had BACON, who didn't get what pictures....It's just a measure of all our enthusiasm for keeping up I think !

xo

magpie said...

Kinda of Like Who's on First, What's on Second, and I Don't Know is on Third !

I love that routine !

magpie said...

Big Panda Birthday doin's Saturday at Atlanta...No Wonder Sissy wants to be a Panda !!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Well, @#$%*&^!! We lost the game. That is the pits!!

But we live to fight another day. Margy, the tail is towards 11 o'clock. That is a cool image though.

Well, gonna hit the hay. My husband is having alot of back trouble again. Ya'll pray for him. All this pain really wears him down.

MITS said...

ok, must be a cruise ship.....poor Tom, Sissy....did he find any ginseng?

magpie said...

Kelloggs has come out with a new cereal, partnered with Animal Planet: "Wild Animal Crunch" which is a vanilla and chocolate flavored cereal - maybe you all have seen these: There are different animals on the Boxes: INCLUDING PANDA !!

Hedgie said...

Goodnight, Megan and Margie!! Sorry you have to work tomorrow.
Prayers for peaceful sleep.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mits, he found some, not a whole lot. He enjoys the time in the woods so much, it is fine with him. But since he went he has really been having a time out of his back. Had surgery last November and just ain't doing too good. Maybe resting for the weekend will help.

MITS said...

I was thinking that could aggravate it

MITS said...

there might be another boat docked near the Finland nest

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yeah, and as much as we love going to the lake, the setting up and tearing down of the camp is not easy on his back either. So, I am going to try to get him to take the muscle relaxers the doc gave him and rest. He don't like they way they make him feel, so he don't take em.

MITS said...

I don't blame him....

magpie said...

Sissy - Back Pain can be a royal pain in the proverbial Butt ! Saps your energy just like that! I hope Tom will feel better soon after some good Panda Rest !

My sciatica acts up a LOT - drains me greatly....

HEDGIE: You are speed -reading !
I don't go in until midnight Saturday night, and MEGAN delivered flowers already for two events...I think she gets to stay home in the rain !

But We Love You Just the Same !

xoxoxox

Mema Jo said...

We'll need to have Sissy tell us about Tom's Ginseng digging adventure. If the "Ginseng root is reputed to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protect against stress, enhance strength and promote relaxation" I would have kept a bushel for myself!

MITS said...

yep, boat anchored on the left side of the screen

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks magpie!! We are going to bed. Ya'll have a great evening, see you in the morning light!!

Mema Jo said...

Sissy I thought you went to bed..
What do you do with what you find?

Mema Jo said...

I think I should go to bed...Slowing down..

Good Night Everyone!
Peace to you and yours
Prayers for all our needs being said

((((HUGS))))


WAKE UP MASON

Evening to some that are hitting the hay.
I found the Mei Lan pic somewhere on the Atlanta site. They were telling about the big party, I think what Helen posted.I bet we really won't be able to see much of the party until they post something later. :>(

Saw some of the CA show. Sorry to hear about your friend Margy. We also have good friend that had lung CA. He had surgery, etc. & has been fine for many years.

NatureNut said...

Boo, Beavers lost. Hope Tom feels better---if he takes the muscle relaxers at bedtime, then the knockout part won't bother him.
Not too good during the day, tho.

NatureNut said...

Sailboat & ferry!

Hedgie said...

Margie, guess I'm just too tired. Been up since 6. My brain is befuddled, or as my grandpa used to say: discombobulated!!
Cute little sailboat at anchor at Finney's. They are probably brewing their coffee before setting sail! Lucky (sea) dogs!
Good night fine friends. God bless us every one.

NatureNut said...

Good Night Lynn. Pleasant Feather Dreams !

Heavy fog at big Finney nest. No sea eagles anywhere. Boo

magpie said...

Good Night HEDGIE: YOU HAVE GOOD CREDIT WITH THIS BUNCH....AND YOU, PLEASE, GET SOME GOOD REST !!!
BUMFUZZLED IS A TERM THAT APPLIES TO ME QUITE OFTEN !

GOING TO CHECK FINNEY'S NOW WHILE EATING A MESS OF GREEN BEANS.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE ELSE HEADING OUT !

XOXOX

NatureNut said...

Gonna go back to crab leg pickin'. Was interrupted by phone calls earlier & couldn't eat them! Midnight snack! Yum

Night All

WAKE UP MASON & hear the rain!!

NatureNut said...

Hoodie at Fin on the water

magpie said...

Oooh, Nature Nut, that Fog at Finney's Land Nest is Mystical...
and the little sailboat is a charmer at the Water Nest...those Sea Eagles might be out in a bit...

I saw a bird there last week, and after looking at my bird books, I think it was a Great Skua or some kind of Glaucous or Herring Gull. By the time I captured it, it was nose down and I got the feather colors but not the beak !
Paula was going to check for some Eurasion Bird Sources for me...
It was sitting on the nest with a Hooded Crow...

magpie said...

Well, we'll just start with a Hooded Crow for now at Finney Water Nest...
