Good Morning, Steve. Thanks

Costume Lady said...

The Royal Nest looks really fuzzy for this time of the morning. Hope it's not stuck.

wvgal_dana said...

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning ALL ( :

Costume Lady said...

SHEPHERDSTOWN...WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM!

Costume Lady said...

HELP, STEVE!!!

Costume Lady said...

Sent an email to Steve. Hope he can get us some help with the cam.

Costume Lady said...

Wonder what a new cam would cost? Don't know if that is the problem, but all the problems we have had with the Live Cam and now the Still one, is sooo very disappointing.

Costume Lady said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SGT. PATRICK THOMPSON!! HE HAS THIS DAY OFF AND HOPE HE FEELS OUR LOVE AND GOOD WISHES.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning everyone! Slept in this morning!!

Costume Lady said...

OK...I don't want Lolly to see me talking to myself, so I'm gone.
Forgot, Lolly is on a trip. And NO HURRICANE THIS TIME!! LOL

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Two eagles at BWO!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SGT. PATRICK!!!

Red said...

Nice eagles at BWO. I think our cam is fuzzy because of Spidy.

wvgal_dana said...

Sissy I just love your panda baby pic. I seen Sharon has the same one too.....I know you "want to be a panda when you grow up". lol

wvgal_dana said...

Red I think like Wanda said "cam is messed up". Outside it is nice and sunny today. Suppose to rain later.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning everyone!

wvgal_dana said...

Well there is the other twin panda baby ( :

Red said...

BBL. I have to Vacuum. Dogs have tracked in too much grass.

Deb said...

Sea eagle at Finny on the Water. I see our cam is stuck again, thanks for reporting it Wanda.

normabyrd said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDDIES!!---STEVEN---WANDA---DANA---SISSY & RED!!----I overslept!!---Went to a great concert PSC last night!!---Check the BOY CUB!!--(nestled up close to his MOMMA!!-----SISSY---I bet you are saying---Awwwwwwww!!---What a HANDSOME CUB!!!-----I think RED could be right---couldn't that be SPIDEY'S work???

Deb said...

Good Morning, everyone. Since we can't see our nest, at least we see eagles at BWO and finny! BWO's are active this morning, flying in and out.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN'-- BLUEFIELD SHARON & DEB!!!------SISSY---I think EVERYONE has PANDA FEVER!!----And that's a good thing!!----ho!---need to check yesterday's blog-----

Ceil said...

Good morning. Just stopping in. I am off to work. I am supposed to be retired. Try to help out when needed.

Lovely fish at BWO

Have a great day.

Costume Lady said...

Speaking of Panda Fever, I looked through my old photos of "Squiggles" aka "ZZ" and she was so "Precious". Take a look on my WILD AND WONDERFUL. Can't remember when she was born, but these photos look to be just a little bit older than Baby Luney. As Mauley would say..."Be still my heart!"

normabyrd said...

WOW!---JO!---I didn't know your last name was THOMPSON!!---We have THOMPSONS here in Romney!----Have been my closest friends for years!!----LOUDOUN THOMPSON, ESQ.--he has traced his family back several years---(might be interesting to talk with him)!!

Costume Lady said...

Speaking of Mauley, if you are reading this, I have a question.
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO COME VISIT WITH US AND OUR ROYAL COUPLE? I have not had the pleasure of meeting you...don't know if you have ever been here or not.

normabyrd said...

WHOA!!---DANA---I would guess there is a 'baker's dozen' DONKEY this am!---3 beautiful dark ones!!

normabyrd said...

Still have my hummers!!---know--I am really going to miss watching them!!!!---

normabyrd said...

EAGLE back at BWO--

Red said...

I thought I had refilled my hummingbird feeders for the last time but no. They are almost empty and I still have hummers too. Will refill later today.

normabyrd said...

The 'capricious' ADORABLE ZZ is movin' today----She stays in motion!!---Never slows down!---I enjoy watching her when MOMMA is there!!----The 'little' one loves to tease her!!!

Costume Lady said...

Red, you said you mow 4 acres of grass...It must cost $100 in gas to finish all of that land and that is, if you can find gas. Looks like you all are still having availability problems. Just really doesn't make any sense.

Red said...

Wanda, mower holds 5 gals of gas. I can mow the 4 acres on about 4 gals in three hours. A couple of weeks ago I had to wait two days to find regular gas. I found premium but dedn't want to spoil my mower into thinking it's going to get the good stuff all the time.

Red said...

Here's a good satellite photo of my place. My house is in the center and I have a long skinny lot. The photo shows my neighbors on each side too. I have one acre in the woods to the right too with a creek running through it.
Reds Place

MITS said...

GOOD THURSDAY A.M. EVERYONE

MITS said...

WOW...party at Red's Place.....you got the room...we can pitch tents:)

MITS said...

caught up on posts, need to finish e-mails......CEIL....you work to hard for a retired person!

Red said...

I think our cam is like it was the last time it was in a loop. I can see photo change but I think it repeats.
Better hurry Helen, will be cold out there soon.

MITS said...

Red remember we are coming from the North...anything South of VA during winter is a heat wave:)

Costume Lady said...

What a beautiful piece of property, Red. Do you garden or grow flowers?
Yes, Helen, looks like a party to me.

Red said...

I have had lots of visitors come here in the winter and say. "I thought it was warm in Alabama" We still get cold here. and the humidity makes it feel colder.

Red said...

No Wanda, no gardening for me as long as there's a farmers market nearby. I'm retired and lazy. I spend enough time keeping grass mowed and trees trimmed.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HELEN!!---WHOA!!----Do you think that all us retired folk do is lie around & eat chocolates!!!----ho!

normabyrd said...

WOW!! RED---That's a beautiful SPREAD!!!----When are you going to invite us down?-------
(ps--i live below the mason-dixon line)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Birds everywhere!! Eagle at BWO, Finney!! Pandas all over the place. Love it! (wish I was a panda)

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Again to Everyone ( :

Wow nice piece of real estate Red.
Thanks for the eyeview from above.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I have a camper when we go to Red's! Wanda and Gene can bring the Eagle Express.

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning Everyone!
I am expecting little guests around 11:00 for a play date! I can't stay long as the toy room needs some tiding up just so they can find their favorite things.
Hope Steve opens you email soon Wanda and gets our cam up & running but like Deb said there is a Sea Eagle at Finny nest and Bald Eagle at BWO.
And Little Luney is lying behind his mom!!

Costume Lady said...

We have an ariel view of our house, but there are so are so manyo trees, you can't see the house. We only have 1and a half acre, but it seems foreve to get it all mowed.

normabyrd said...

SISSY---Isn't that YOUR PHOTO on your avatar!!----I thought finally SISSY has gotten her wish!!----SHE'S A PANDA NOW!!!----ho!---

Mema Jo said...

Red I may need to reboot - I can't get to your blog by clicking on the avatar.. I was just in on Wanda's so not sure what is not connecting..

Wanda Thanks for the photos that bring back so many happy memories of ZZ and Bai. Can't wait until we are all watching and coaching Little Luney to Roll Over.

normabyrd said...

SISSY!!-----NOW LIFE IS GOOD!!!---ho!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO!----Hope you read my note about THOMPSONS---

NatureNut said...

Good TH Everyone----off today but tons of stuff to do. Think 'puter is eating up our time?LOL Gotta check Finney's & Pandas. How wonderful to sea eagle at BWO.
Red, your place is great!Daughter used to live in Mobile & we went down to Gulf Shores a few times. The most beautiful white sand we've ever seen. Had never heard of it, but SIL was from TN & said they vacationed there all the time.

normabyrd said...

Haven't seen MEGAN on here!!----BUT THE RAIN IS ON IT'S WAY!---TONITE------LOTS OF IT TOO!!

Red said...

MITS said...

roflmbo....Sissy you behave:)

MITS said...

I hope the sea eagles stay there all winter...of course once winter comes will not see much of the nest since it stays dark there most of the time.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Too funny.

MITS said...

Sharon, do you want me to come down there and referee?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

It's her fault. She should have left my bear alone!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Yes, Mits, you come right on. I have seniority on here and that is my bear!

MITS said...

HEY!!!! don't make me come down there....I'll bring Jo, she has the cane...I have a noodle:)

MITS said...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I can't say what just went threw my mind on this blog. There are civilized people here, my dear sister.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

through my mind, excuse me.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Nana-nana, boo-boo!

MITS said...

Thursday, September 25
The nights have become much quieter this week. In the first two weeks after birth, giant panda cubs vocalize frequently to communicate to their mothers that they are hungry, cold, or just uncomfortable in their current position. As cubs grow, they don’t need to nurse as frequently because they can take in more milk during each nursing session. This allows both mother and cub to rest for longer periods of time. Lun Lun’s cub has followed this pattern. During the first two weeks, we normally heard him vocalize every 30 to 45 minutes. Now there are periods of an hour to an hour and a half of silence while he and Lun Lun sleep.

The cub’s weight this morning was 832 grams.

LATEST UPDATE FROM ATLANTA

Thanks for the update Mits.

paula eagleholic said...

Afternoon, all.

Love the pic from yesterday...looks like Lib was checking out his feeties :):)

Looks like a bugared up cam today, huh?

Mom is doing good...waiting to be released to the rehab facility...

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle at BWO - looks wet there.

paula eagleholic said...

Sissy finally turned into a panda!!!

MITS said...

that is very good news, Paula...thank God

Hedgie said...

Great Sissy Panda pic!!! Can't anyone steal that one from you, girlfriend! Now you girls can behave!
Jo, you lost me...did you mean that Patrick appreciates the fact that I am a Skins fan, and that I have to be the most avid because I am older than he is??? I'll buy that...age has rank! LOL!!!
And whoops....I goofed...I thought he was your grandson or g-s-i-l....didn't realize that he was your sil!!!! Sorry.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Sure is quiet out there. Whatcha doin'?

Mema Jo said...

MY BAD! Hedgie, Patrick is my
GrandSon In Law........
Norma thinks my name is Thompson -

You must have put a statement on you card about who was the most avid Skins fan - he got a kick out of if when you said that you won because you were the older and longest Skin fan -

My play dates are returning to Hedgesville! Panda Snooze may be in order!

Red said...

Goldfinches are migrating through North Alabama. Just had a big flock in my yard.

Mema Jo said...

Sissy I love your picture especailly because it is personalized with your name! Sissy is a panda!!

Paula - good news about your mom & I am sure she is excited about leaving ICU - one step closer to getting better.

Mema Jo said...

Newspaper article this am was about the migration watch up at Washington
Monument State Park - South Mt. I think the thermals come right down that way. Hawk Mt also doing the count. Lisa had a link to there web site.

Yepper! The birds are on the go!

MITS said...

MITS said...

Floralgirl said...

Whoa!! Sissy actually did turn itno a panda. Hey Jo, what newspaper had the Wash. Monument article? I gotta get up there, maybe this weekend.

NatureNut said...

WOW, maybe Sharon is keeping Luney, but Sissy HAS FINALLY BECOME a Panda!!!Imagine that! LOL
Hope Sgt. Patrick is having a GREAT REDSKIN B'day!

Paula, GOOD news about your Mom. Finger, toe xing & prayers on order.
BBL--gotta check dryer, Booooo I hate housework. Did I ever tell anyone I want to be MAXINE when I grow up?

Mema Jo said...

Todays' Frederick News Post, Megan

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening everyone. Thanks DEB!!

Deb said...

Hi, just got home from errands in SF. Hot and windy day here and it is supposed to be even hotter tomorrow.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

That is NOT Sharon's cub. It is OURS!!

Hedgie said...

Helen, are you glad you aren't in OC or wishing that you were? Looks fierce! And they said that they closed schools on the Outer Banks so guess Candy has at least one day off.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I like it Deb. Thanks!

Deb said...

Bwo eagle is in the water spot on the lens, all fuzzy!

Deb said...

I had to add fire to the panda battle a little bit! :)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

FOUL BALL DEB!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I still love my panda bear!

MITS said...

Lynn, have been at the beach for several nor'easters, we have them all winter,..our building is built very well, still would not stay around for a tropical storm or hurricane, but the nor'easters last longer....I'm watching a cam on 8th street and the boardwalk...ocean looks mean...grrrr.

MITS said...

MITS said...

Hedgie said...

Red said...

Helen, Can I ask you a question. What significance does your name MITS have

MITS said...

Lynn...love the one at Kill Devil, if you go to the top of page hit Wavecam, you get the sound too.....JMHO, but I would not be walking on that pier like I have seen some people.

MITS said...

Red, along time ago, when we were first married (34 years ), I quit my job, and never found another one, so hubby started calling MITS.....MADE IN THE SHADE:)

Red said...

Makes sense to me. lol Thanks.

MITS said...

YES,RED, the man has spoiled me:)

MITS said...

CAM AT OCEAN CITY

MITS said...

it sometimes takes a few seconds to download, and there is no sound.

Floralgirl said...

Wow- it's a Panda battle in here..

Deb said...

A couple of people have asked how I get pictures, but the program I use is for Mac computers only. I found one for PC's that is free, called Fraps. I'll get a link put up.

Deb said...

EAGLE ALERT!!!!

MITS said...

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

EAGLE ALERT - OUR NEST!

magpie said...

DEB started it !

MITS said...

Deb said...

When I was trying to figure out how to do it, I think that is what Paula said she used, too. I searched at the Maine and IWS sites for Mac users and found the one I use.

Mema Jo said...

Hey Down There

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie Thanks!
One of those is the Weatherbug -
