wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Steven for the new thread. WOW thank you Brett for the wonderful video of our eagle and the nest and tree. Thank you Steven for posting for us to see. ( :

Red said...

Norma, I just mix 1 part sugar to 3 parts tap water. No boiling. Keep it simple. Most people use 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. Don't go any stronger than 1 sugar to 3 water. Too strong is not good for the hummers.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Morning Mits, Deb, and everyone!! Good to see ya.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

panda dancing in DC.

normabyrd said...

Thanks RED!---Sounds GREAT!---Like that not boiling water!

Nest Update

09/22/08:
Hawk Mountain in Pennsylvania is reporting that between Aug. 6 and Sept. 21, 266 ospreys migrated over the mountains.

If you've never been to Hawk Mountain to see fall migration, you should really plan a visit.

from LISA

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

are ya'll seeing that baby. total comfort and relaxation.

Mema Jo said...

Just saying Good Morning...

I have been watching the Eagle at BWO

That is one large beautiful Eagle!!

MITS said...

YES, it is huge!

MITS said...

Tiger cam at NZ is showing a beautiful sleeping tiger:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Gosh, that is a huge eagle!!

Costume Lady said...

Steve, thank you for taking the time to post Brett's video. FOLKS, THIS IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO SEE OCT. 18! It is truly breathtaking to walk up to that area and see Lib or Belle (or both) in that tree.

Costume Lady said...

After not seeing a hummer for 3-4 days...just saw one. I am most sure it is a migrating one, because it has more green on it than ours. Glad I kept the feeder full.

Costume Lady said...

GeeGee appointments today. BBL
Have a good day.

MITS said...

eagle gone at BWO, now the black birds are coming in

MITS said...

TUESDAY ATLANTA UPDATE.

Tuesday, September 23
It barely seems possible that in less than a week the cub will be one month old!

In these past 24 days the cub has made phenomenal developmental gains. Since entering the world as a pink, virtually bald, somewhat nascent form, he has developed the quintessential features of a giant panda with tiny black tufted ears, arms, legs, shoulder saddle, and black encircled eyes. He has grown from an estimated birth weight of 125 grams to this morning’s weight of 764.3 grams.

The opportunities to watch these changes are improving as the natural progression of maturation and mothering allows for longer and more frequent periods of time when the cub can be viewed unimpeded.

Mason's update

Mema Jo said...

My thanks to Steve & Brett for posting the video! If there are anymore videos to view - bring them on!

Paula, I am so happy for you that your mom is getting better. Thoughts & prayers still coming your family's way.

Loretta - where's the kitten now?

Jim - thanks for the info on F & F
Don't think we'll be fortunate enough to see them this season.

Mema Jo said...

Little Luney is up under Lun Lun's chin. I think the cameraman wants us to see just how long that tail is!
lol

Floralgirl said...

Cool video-thanks Steve and Brett!!
Paula- great news!!

Hello everybody!

Wanda- we always keep our feeders out until November, sometimes we will get a straggler, hummers all migrate at different times, some of ours here are still very small.

Back to work, up to my eyeballs in field trip paperwork....

Hedgie said...

Great video, Brett. Thanks and to you, too, Steve for posting!
Partly cloudy morning here in the panhandle...but not as cool as the last few am's.
Thanks for F&F notes, Jim....hmmmm.....

normabyrd said...

CHECK LUN LUN & BOY CUB!!---I think he is nursing!!!!---what a handsome cub!!---Who wouldn't love that face!!!!

Hedgie - You're on you own for a while. You can do it! Red is mowing, Sissy & Sharon are working, Mits is unpacking, Norma is filling bird feeders and paying her bills!
Megan is doing paperwork for the field trips in hopes of NOT losing any kids!!! Loretta, Paula & Margy are working & Lolly is vacationing!
I bet Dana is panda napping! I don't know where Deb is - maybe you can find her. Lynn - good day for staining decks!

Hedgie said...

As a matter of fact, Jo, as soon as the sun (out full now) moves around the corner, I WILL be hitting the railing painting...only have a little left to do; that should be all for a couple of years, I hope!!
I imagine Deb is still catching up on all of her chores after her b-u-s-y summer!!!
Have a good afternoon, everyone.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Sgt Patrick said THANK YOU! He has
gotten the cards you are sending & it certainly brightens his day!
((hugs))

magpie said...

Great, MEMA - I mailed his birthday card out on Friday Sept 19 ...meant to send it sooner, but I put the date on the back of the envelope like you said to..so maybe we can see how long it takes for mail to get there.
And I bought me a new pretty red blouse last night at the Second Hand Store...I'm gearing up for Fridays every week ! xoxox

magpie said...

Well it wasn't NEW, It was, we say in my family "New Old"...

AND I got two New Old pairs of Bib Overalls! About wore my other ones out !

Mema Jo said...

As long as it is new to you - that's what makes the difference.

Mema Jo said...

Too dark in the den to see Little Luney......

Nothing on the F&F ledge and from Jim's link I don't expect to see any falcons down under this season...
I know we have the other site but I got attached to F&F...

magpie said...

YEAH! And you should see the pile of greeting cards I got! I finally found ONE FROG !

magpie said...

..You'll never guess who's gonna get that FROG !

magpie said...

BabyLanta all alone and squirming and wiggling...

magpie said...

That IS the Baby isn't it? Or a far off view of the Momma?

magpie said...

There's my answer..Mom is back...almost looks like she SAT on Luney but now she is loving him up !

I miss all this during the daytime...

magpie said...

Baby in full view, Luney on top of Lun Lun.

You all can tell what kind of TV I am watching...

Time for Bed,
Good Night Everyone.
Take Care, and Big Prayers.

NatureNut said...

Margy, Glad you liked the pics--- they are only Fair. Bob's are GREAT!!!
BTW, My boss brought over a butterfly net when we saw the monarch. They are tagging them now. Of course it kept flying over the roof. And they collected several caterpillars which did change to chrysalises.Some didn't
emerge due to being parasitized.

Good Night to all---;>)
