Mema Jo said...

Good Sunday Morning Everyone
Hope your day is filled with lots of love and joy and maybe being able to see an eagle or two! Catching up on comments and emails and then off for an hour or so with family.

Mema Jo said...

I am thankful that all our cards reached you this am Delphia!
Have a very special day - it is
all yours!
Happy Birthday and may the year ahead be good to you

Red said...

Norma, you say your hummers are still eating the Red stuff. I hope you dont' use food coloring. Food coloring is not good for hummers. They will drink sugar water without coloring.

Hedgie said...

Happy Birthday, Delphia!

Hedgie said...

Hey, Margy, you did in blue, too! Aren't we getting smart? Thanks to all of our fine fowl friends teaching us how!!

Ceil said...

See you tomorrow sister dear. Lunching with Maggie & Molly.

Mema Jo said...

I did go pumpkin picking with Alexis but not to the Patch - to the front of the grocery store!!! We had eaten lunch (Burger King at you know who's request) and then upon leaving her thumb went in the mouth and head went down on her dad's shoulder. So in order to go home with a pumpkin we did a quick trip & she was very happy.
Getting ready now to go over to daughter's for dinner. I love those
kind of invitations.

Mema Jo said...

All of our SKINS fans should be happy

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie said...

Hey, Jo, is that a turtle shell at about 11??

Hedgie said...

Knock, knock...anybody else home? Did anyone else see our resident "visitor"??

Deb said...

Darn, I missed the visit. Still lots of time to come back again.

Eagle at BWO!

Hedgie said...

Ravens have clinched this one! Congrats, my MD friends!

Deb said...

BWO is gone, I think it was same one as earlier. At least it was in the same spot.

Hedgie said...

Hi, Deb....almost dark...nest will be hard to see soon, thanks to spidey!

Deb said...

My Vikings one too. We are all happy campers, but I think the Steelers might be losing.

Deb said...

I wish I would have come to check a little earlier. I was watching the Steeler game.

movin said...

Both SD and Atlanta Panda cams are interesting right now.


C(°ﮡ°)D

Jim

Ceil said...

Lynn you beat me to it about the Ravens. I wanted to make sure it was over. Missed the visit.

Hedgie said...

Stare at the nest, Deb...can you see two eyes, a big,crooked nose and a droll little mouth?? I know...I have a vivid imagination!!Gotta see something when there's no eagle! Fun for the feeble-minded.

Hedgie said...

Hi Jim and Ceil! Congrats to ALL winning teams if they are your favs!!

Hedgie said...

What a life Lun has!! So content.

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie - T-Bird should be flying high with the Skin's win just as you are! Just as is out army guy Patrick over in Iraq about this win!!
Mits & Hubby should be once again be pleased with Ravens' win! Been doing good ever since they brought in the live raven mascots!!!
Well it is early evening - I'm back -
but not soon enough to see our visitor.
I need to put my feet up for a few...
Was standing out on daughter's deck watching the Hummers. She put out extra feeders so they wouldn't have to fight!

Hedgie said...

Squirm-worm says "Mom, let me up for some air! Don't hold me so tight!"

Hedgie said...

Glad you had a nice day, Jo. Prop your feet up and relax!!

Hedgie said...

Anyone know how many teats a panda has? Do they run the full length of the trunk the way they do on dogs and cats?

Mema Jo said...

Lynn - I can't be sure if I can see the turtle shell in the dark and web covered nest? One day I will find a shell under that tree - I'll shellac it - and I'll keep it forever.

BBL

Hedgie said...

Lun pats him just like we do a baby! So cute.

Deb said...

I think I see and eagle tail, darn, I should have said something when I first saw it. Gone now. I will send you two a picture and see what you think.

Deb said...

Panda has 4 teats, had to google it.

Deb said...

Check your mail, if you think it is an eagle tail, I'll forward it on to more.

Deb said...

Only the upper nipples are used when a panda cub is young, the lowers are used when the cub gets older. Interesting commentary, I will get the link.

Hedgie said...

Not the same image now, so maybe/probably it was, Deb!! Good grab!

Deb said...

Panda cub first week

wvgal_dana said...

Well SKINS won their game yea!!!!

Poor hubbys Steelers lost :(

ZZ is sure in a comfy seat and eating bamboo.

Baby Luney just got finish nursing.

Yep I missed the evening visit.

Deb said...

The link is to a program from the San Diego Zoo, it is kind of long, but I found it interesting.

Deb said...

Thanks for the confirmation, Lynn, I'll send it out.

Hedgie said...

Yes, Deb, that was interesting! TY.

Mema Jo said...

LUN LUN & LITTLE LUNEY

In Full View

magpie said...

Okay Watching Lun Lun and Baby - I know he is those folds of Panda Fur somewhere !

Great Eagle Photo Deb ! Thanks !

Osprey at Wildwatch, kinda looks like an adult

magpie said...

Half of the Fun of this Blog is seeing the fabulour Avatars !

Love the Osprey DEB !

Mema Jo said...

DEB - definitely an eagles tail.
Good Eye!

Didn't mean to make that a blue message before - I usually only use
the blue when it is a link!

magpie said...

Ha Ha Jo - I did click on it a few times.....then just went back to the Cam I had opened up earlier in Atlanta -

Now that a few more of us are learning the "Blue Things" we will have to learn the rest of the "rules." xoxo

wvgal_dana said...

Deb that was a great picture you took..( :

magpie said...

So I will Save Blue Things for Links.....!

wvgal_dana said...

I'll be in and out football kick off again ... oh boy !

Mema Jo said...

Margy instead of Blue lettering try to use the Bold Black

< b >
< /b >


But I always like to say Good Morning in Blue!!!

Mema Jo said...

BBIALW

magpie said...

OKAY JO, GOTCHA !

XOXOXOXO

magpie said...

I hope we hear from Paula soon...maybe she is catching some pigskin action at the Hospital...

TTFN - time to do some housework, how boring !

xo

Deb said...

Osprey at WW.

Costume Lady said...

DEB...that is very interesting. I don't think it can be snow, must be rain. Is that the PIX cam? What do the others think?

Hedgie said...

Wanda, I think it is probably a sprinkle of rain, too. There is a front coming through from that direction....

Deb said...

I have had one vote for rain, if so it lasted 5 seconds, that is how long my refresh is set at. My only other thought is maybe there was a big birdie above the cam.

Hedgie said...

Ooooh, Deb....better to think rain!!!

Deb said...

I knew it wasn't snow, but sure looks like it, doesn't it?

Deb said...

I agree, off to watch the Raptor Show! BBL

Costume Lady said...

Deb, you must have excellent vision, to see that little bit of an eagle tail and the strange precipitation all in the same evening. Glad you are one of us.

Costume Lady said...

Deb, it was an excellent show. We just got through watching it.

Floralgirl said...

Hello... Here you go, Jo-Ridgefield Farm
I also added some pics to my blog.

MITS said...

you got some interesting looking friends there, Megan:)

MITS said...

osprey still hanging out at WW

MITS said...

Luney all alone.

MITS said...

Sunday, September 21
The cub continues to grow and thrive under Lun Lun's care. This morning, he weighed 644.4 grams. His black coloration is very dark now and the fine layer of white fur he was born with is becoming thicker. Within the next week or two, his fur will get fuller and more dense, and he will finally look black and white instead of black and pale pink. After his coat grows in, the next milestone will be at 35-50 days after birth when his eyes will start to open!

magpie said...

MEGAN - Great photos! the tobacco hornworm is specatular and I love the Saddleback.
What kind of hummingbird is that? Never seen one like that around here, looks like it has a little black chin..

Floralgirl said...

Those are ruby throated hummingbirds, that's all we get here. They are immature males from this season, the spots on their throats will eventually be replaced by the familiar red.

magpie said...

3 deer at the salt lick..PIX PA

MITS said...

their eyes look blue....Margy

magpie said...

Okey Dokey Megan..thought maybe you had a transient...know it rarely happens, but your garden would be a welcome spot for such a visitor!
Friend of mine in New York sometimes sees a rufous-sided, but he sees all kinds of rare things where he is....

magpie said...

I see what you mean, MITS!

magpie said...

Oh, just saw one pair each of red, white and blue eyes ! How Cool !

Hedgie said...

Wonderful pics, Megan! Thanks for sharing!

MITS said...

they look tiny too.

Hedgie said...

Hey...speaking of pics...Bob has been MIA for awhile...think he's looking for the Rumsey???

magpie said...

SISSY! Where are you? You are missing the show in Pennsylvania!

Hedgie said...

Almost time for Army Wives....BBL.

Mema Jo said...

PA WOODS - Doe at salt lick with
fawns I think

MITS said...

maybe we can pitch in and get Bob a GPS:)

Mema Jo said...

GREAT! They were gone and I typed the alert really fast! It was a scene from the other cam location

MITS said...

we saw them, Jo...sent you a pic

magpie said...

Yes, Mema, they put on QUITE a show....Those eyes were so colorful ! Red, Blue, Green, White...
and they are back !

Mema Jo said...

Now they're back!

MITS said...

look at those ears

magpie said...

magpie said...

Sticking their tongues out a LOT !

MITS said...

MITS said...

MITS said...

Lolly said...

Hi All! We are all loaded and heading out early in the morning. Have a good week and I will be back in a week or so. Just depends on what a good time we are having! :)

MITS said...

safe travels, Lolly:)

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Megan for the link to the
Ridgefield Farms. Maybe my family will take me there for my b-day and I can hear the Speakeasy Boys!
I would love that.

MITS said...

osprey gone at WW

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the photo Lolly - at Camp
Hawkwood it looks like good times were had by all.

Mema Jo said...

If you check your email Lolly there is a message..... No big deal if you don't ....

magpie said...

HAVE FUN LOLLY! WE'LL MISS YOU !

magpie said...

Osprey finally left WW...

Headed for a short serenity Panda rest before work tonight.

Nighty Night to everyone, catch you on the morning side !

xoxo

Lolly said...

Thanks all! Appreciate the good wishes. Jo, we will reply. Right now Jack is involved with the Cowboys. He can not be disturbed!!!!

Deb said...

I just finished watching the Raptor Force. It was very interesting, focused on the flight of the birds and how they are studying the birds to build faster, more maneuverable jets.

I hear thunder, off to check the weather.

paula eagleholic said...

Evening, all!

Great Weekend. Arrived at the hospital yesterday to find Mom had just been taken off the ventilator! Wasn't sure if they were really going to take her off as she had accumlated some fluid on her lungs (not good). But they were able to get it off and it's stayed off. So now she is breathing with some O2. She is one happy camper! I told her there were many people, that she didn't know, who only knew her as my Mom, that were praying for her and sending positive, healing thoughts her way. She wants to me to tell you "Thank You". She said she really needed them, and I told her she had them. She is now committed to getting herself into a much better physical condition. She doesn't ever want to be on the vent again. I saw her today also, and she continues to improve a little each day, gaining strength.

Thank you, each and every one, for all your positive thoughts and prayers for my Mom and my family.

Deb said...

I just talked to Jane, she and Gabby arrived safely in Idaho. Gabby made the trip like a pro and even ate a trout while in route.

paula eagleholic said...

Awww, Deb, that is such good news about Gabby!

MITS said...

That is wonderful news, Paula...as we approached Holy Cross hospital today....I saw black smoke and got scared.....but it was a car on the side of the outer loop fully engulfed in flames...hubby said call 911....I did...and got put on hold..but when they answered me, they already knew about it and were sending fire engines

paula eagleholic said...

Lolly - have a safe trip and enjoy!

MITS said...

good ole Gabby.....glad they are home.

Deb said...

Paula, I am so glad your mom is off the vent. I know it is a such a relief for you to know that she is breathing on her own and continues to improve.

magpie said...

Great Update on your Mother, Paula,
Braveo!

And Great News about Gabby!

Nice way to end a Sunday Evening..

xo

Mema Jo said...

Most of us have been waiting for you to come in this evening. And I can only be very thankful that your mom
is on the road to recovery.

Good news about Gabby - he sure had a good dinner while on the road home.
You will see him again you know.

magpie said...

MITS - Can understand your being put on hold...one incident on the interstate or major highway, and now with everyone having cell phones, everyone calls! Quickly leads to an overload of calls! But it is good that people call, because if everyone thought SOMEONE else would call, NO ONE WOULD!

It is What It Is ! xo

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, Mits. Glad someone had already called it in!

magpie said...

..That's BRAVO I meant, not BRAVEO, Paula.

You can see we were all waiting to hear from you!

paula eagleholic said...

MIts - thanks for the baby Lun update. I forgot how long it takes them to open their eyes!

Mema Jo said...

Margy I don't think that 30 minutes qualifies as a Panda Nap
A Panda Snooze - maybe. Hope that you have a quiet night shift!

MITS said...

My heart was in my throat, Paula, I was scared it was the hospital....I understand completely, Margy, and the woman was very nice and thanked me for calling....have not seen anthing on the news, so thankfully no one was hurt, I guess.

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for thinking of me! :)

I miss ya'll!!

MITS said...

We are just glad you are home safe and sound Paula, and that Mom is doing well...will keep her in the special prayers list.

paula eagleholic said...

I can understand Mits. Makes it worse when you know someone is there, then you think there is a tragedy there!

paula eagleholic said...

I see our special pair was sighted over the weekend! Glad some of ya'll got to see them!

Mema Jo said...

I am calling it a day
Early morning eye exam appointment


Good Night Everyone
Peace to you & yours
Prayers & positive thoughts for all
needs of our friends & families


I wish I could say
Good Morning Suzanne and that she would see it! Miss that gal

magpie said...

Panda Spiritual Break, JO -
Try to get my head and heart on straight before heading in.
Sometimes, unfortunately, we take calls of course, for people we know, relatives and friends, having emergencies. And wrecks, you never know if some of your people are in those cars or not....everyone in need is someone's loved one, that's for sure.

Thanks for the well-wishes.

TAKE CARE, AND PRAYERS, ALL.
XOXO

paula eagleholic said...

Kinda late, but

Happy Birthday, Bird Girl!

Hedgie said...

Hey, Jo...when is YOUR birthday????
Glad you are home with such good news, Paula!
And good to hear that Gabby traveled well w/ Jane.
Lolly, have a fun time. NO HURRICANES allowed!!
Did anyone see the ads for the new Lifetime movie "Living Proof"? Harry Connick, Jr. stars as the doctor who invented the breast cancer drug Herceptin. Airs Oct.18th, so we shall have to set our tapes, as we will be busy!!!!

Hedgie said...

Hope your shift is quiet, Margy.
Night, Jo! Sleep well. GEt those peepers ready for the test!

paula eagleholic said...

Robyn - I was reading back on yesterday's blog. I have had food issues with my 2 males also. Always feed the dominant one first. When I feed the second one, the dominant one (Nugz) has to either lay day in the kitchen while Boo eats, or go outside. If he is laying in the kitchen, I still keep my eyes on him and don't leave the room, because Nugz will try to steal Boo's food, but Boo won't try to steal his. When Nugz tries it, there's a lot of growling, and sometimes a fight - but not anything lately. I usually just step in and pull the bowl away. No food, no fight.

paula eagleholic said...

Have a good shift Margy! Still don't know how you can do these day shifts then night shifts!

paula eagleholic said...

OK, folks, I am outta here for the night. Gotta work tomorrow. Hope to see you then!

Hedgie said...

Car fire was on the news...woman threw out a cigarette that came back in and set it on fire!

Hedgie said...

Night all! Prayers for all. Fall starts at 11:44am tomorrow. Boo...

Deb said...

Yuck, fall. The only part of fall I like are the colorful leaves on the trees. Once they start coming down, I move to: Yuck! Allergies and 40' cottonwoods with tons of leaves. I always hope for wind that blows them away from my yard, not towards it. I wouldn't mind dealing with the piles of leaves quite so much if the trees were at least mine.

Night all!

Costume Lady said...

It's so good to hear that Paula's Mom is doing so well. Paula can rest easier now. Thanks given for another prayer answered.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL

movin said...
