GOOD MORNING EVERYONE..
Where did our Live Feed go? Must be Goblins down there at NCTC trying to trick us. Maybe if we give them a Treat, they will turn the cam back on. LOL

Costume Lady said...

Jo, I have sent you an email with directions to my shop. I couldn't seem to get it large enough there...I posted it on Wanda's Wishes for anyone one else who would like to come down and there, you can click on the map and it will enlarge.

MITS said...

thanks, Wanda

MITS said...

Got this from Loraine,

Hi Helen,
The main 'WDFW Customer Service' email address (I believe is still) wildthing@dfw.wa.gov. I am on the site occasionally but haven't checked that information in a long while.

Along with many other projects and areas he's involved in, our contact and the WDFW WildWatch Cam Coordinator is Chuck Gibilisco. His email is GIBILCJG@dfw.wa.gov. His boss is Mike O'Malley OMALLMFO@dfw.wa.gov. The last time I wrote to the wildthing address (a year or so ago maybe?) I got a canned response.. You know those kind that say stuff like 'Thank you for writing, someone will get back to you ...." etc etc..

Let us know how the communications go,
Loraine and Garry

normabyrd said...

MEGAN---Your "YELLOW SUBMARINE" certainly brought back memories!!---My kids loved it!!----thanks you 'MISS PUMPKIN PATCH'!! ho!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

normabyrd said...

SISSY---DID you read the "clinically cute panda"---They will name the BOY CUB on Dec. 8!!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO!---no red shirt--must go to funeral home---later--

normabyrd said...

JO!!---If you get your computer fixed---tell me what I need to do!!---(i need to take it to a computer shop)---

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning, Jim

A short but interesting report from Steph on the Northern Channel Islands....

Bluie link below.

Northern Islands Report

MITS said...

Friday,
October 10
Over the last month it has been interesting to see this little cub’s features and markings develop. I have always hoped that one of Yang Yang’s offspring would have a white patch of fur on a paw just like he does. The cub’s paws are still too small for me to tell if he has any noticeable white patches, so I guess I will just have to wait and see if I get my wish. However, during the cub’s most recent weight checks, I have noticed a different marking on the cub’s fur that may set him apart from other pandas, but not all pandas! Just like his mother Lun Lun and his older sister Mei Lan, this cub has small patches of white fur on both of his otherwise black heels. As he grows, it will be interesting to see if they become as noticeable as Mei Lan’s white markings, or if they stay small and less noticeable, like Lun Lun’s.

The cub's most current weight is 1588 grams.

movin said...

Good morning, Mema Jo and the rest of the crew...

Is that a rabbit the Clouded Leopard is eating this morning??

Maybe it's still frozen, but it doesn't closely resemble any rabbit I've seen.


[:~D]

Jim

Mema Jo said...

I thought it was a bone... Mits says they feed them thawed rabbit once a week.... Go up to comments starting with RED around 9:14....

Mema Jo said...

Hey Birders - need to break for about
an hour........

BBL

MITS said...

It just looks like his regular bone to me....I have seen the frozen rabbits at the commissary

MITS said...

bbialw.

Hedgie said...

Good Friday afternoon, eagle fans!
Notice that eagle is not capitalized, so I am not referring to football fans! LOL!! Did anyone know that my Skins beat them??? RAH!!
Norma, I had the same problem w/ e-mail...everytime I tried to forward or reply, 'puter froze up completely. I really don't think it is us or our equipment....I think it's goblins in the airways!

magpie said...

Good Afternoon Everyone -
Gosh it seems wrong to sleep through a beautiful day like this: But I'm up and raring to to and off tonight, so there's plenty of hours to wear RED for the military .

NORMA Condolences for the bereaved, reference your trip to the funeral home. Peace and Prayers...

xo

magpie said...

I saw those beautiful Eagles at Pelican Harbor this morning before snoozing...but another Big Treat was hearing the song of a LOON at the Maine Cam early this morning, it didn't last long, but was unmistakeably its song...

Time to get rollin',
TTFN xox

Hedgie said...

Baby Luney is all alone, sleeping soundly! So cute!

Ceil said...

I just spoke to Candy. She is fine but has been busy and unable to get on at work. She will be on the blog later.

magpie said...

GOOD NEWS ABOUT CANDY, CEIL, NICE WAY TO END OUT THE WEEK

You all have a nice evening, I'm going out to find some kids to play with..

xox

Costume Lady said...

CEIL, so glad you reached Candy. I really thought there was something wrong, because Candy was a very enthusiastic blogger and was on here every morning along with me and Suz. We HAD COFFEE TOGETHER every morning. I miss hearing about her kidnergardners and the goings on at the Outer Banks.

Costume Lady said...

She always kidded about being in Kindergarten for 24 years. I think she plans on retiring after this year.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good afternoon, my friends of fine feathers and fur!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I haven't even looked at today's blog until now. See where Megan gave us a ride on the yellow submarine. Now, I will see what else I have missed today.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

So glad that Candy is not MIA anymore!

Red said...

Do you people who are having "puter" problems have anti spyware installed. If not you might be experienceing slow down and freezes due to spyware.

Red said...

Spybot and Ad Aware are freebee antispyware and are better than nothing but still allow lots to get through.

Hedgie said...

Red, my spyware is whatever is in Norton/Symantec package. Do you mean that IT is causing freeze-ups, etc.? And that the two you mentioned don't?
Yea! Glad that Candy is alive and well!! Did she say how the wedding went?

Red said...

Norton/Symantec is probably your antivirus. Not sure if they have antispyware included or not. But it is not the problem.
Norton is probably the best antivirus you can get but it's also a memory hog.

Ceil said...

Lynn, she said the wedding went fine.

T-Bird said...

good evening all my fine eagle buds

T-Bird said...

I see live feed isn't up. :(

T-Bird said...

At least we have baby luney for those like me who don't do lots of cams

MITS said...

hi Thelma...always something good to watch, if you want to:)

MITS said...

CEIL thanks for calling Candy....I was thinking something was wrong because she is such a regular, even though we knew she was busy with wedding....:)still seemed odd, she was not around.

MITS said...

there is an eagle at BWO

MITS said...

updat on BWO page....

Nest Update

10/10/08:
Mittark -- the young osprey from Martha's Vineyard -- has struck out on migration in a big way by flying out over the Atlantic Ocean -- all the way to Florida.

T-Bird said...

hello MITS :) I'm here in Bedford this evening-strange not being in Bluefield this weekend

MITS said...

Buddy must be wondering why you are home:)

MITS said...

I hear the loons up in Maine

T-Bird said...

Yeah-MITS-Buddy is lost. :)

Hedgie said...

Yes, Red, the menu shows "Spyware Protection" and is marked Secure.
I guess memory hogs slow things down, right? But it wouldn't cause freeze-ups would it, when I still have 70+% free space?

Hedgie said...

Helen, can you link me to Maine, please? If I had it, I can't find it!!

MITS said...

Lynn it is on its way....going out for chinese food..bbialw

MITS said...

its getting dark there Lynn, so you might not see or hear anything except the ocean

Red said...

No Hedgie, yours sounds ok. Sorry I can't help you . It's hard to troubleshoot without being there with hands on.

Red said...

I WAS a computer technician in my last life. Just been retired 5 years. Lose it in a hurry.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

YEAH RAH!! NO WORKING THIS WEEKEND. I JUST FINISHED!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Let me guess, everybody else has a life and are out and about on this Friday evening, right? :)

T-Bird said...

now Sharon you sound like staying at home means we don't have a life :)

T-Bird said...

I still haven't seen Baby Luney roll over

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

ROFLMAO!

Floralgirl said...

Have no fear, no life here...I am home......

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Hey, T-bird, did you see my beautiful pic on here?

T-Bird said...

forgive me but i don't know what ROFLMAO means

T-Bird said...

what pic? oh yeah, I sure did-he is handsome!!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, really it should say ROFLMBO - rolling on the floor laughing my butt off!

T-Bird said...

Hello Megan

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

That is Andrew's "teacher" look. He has to dress up to observe a class.

T-Bird said...

What class is Andrew observing Sharon

Red said...

I have observed something.
Andrew is a BIG boy. lol

T-Bird said...

Yes Red he is a manly man!!! A fine looking young manly man I should say.

Red said...

I can almost remember when I was a young manly man. :)

Floralgirl said...

Andrew looks very tall.

T-Bird said...

I bet you can Red :)

T-Bird said...

luney's trying to walk

Red said...

I would guesstimate Andrew to be at least 6'6". I know I would have to look up to him.

T-Bird said...

Andrew is 6'2''- right Sharon and what size show does he wear-a 16

Red said...

If he is 6' 2" then the door he's standing in is short or it's not as close as it looks in the photo.

Mema Jo said...

Hello everyone.
Raccoons are out in full force at the PA woods.
Little Luney is squirming around
I wish we had sound for him.

T-Bird said...

I wish we had sound too Mema Jo-have you seen Baby Luney turn over

Hedgie said...

Red, even tho' 5 yrs. is a long time in tech advances, I believe that once you have that knack, you can pretty much keep up w/ the new stuff! You are lucky to be so talented!
Hey, Bedford Thelma....do you normally go home every weekend??

Costume Lady said...

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE...
Shop is closed. Dinner is over. time to get comfy. Gene watched the shop while I went to dinner with GeeGee, Karla, Denise, Dustin and Brandon. Crab legs were super good. I only had one plate full...so proud of myself. No dessert. Dustin came home with me and will be with us til Monday evening. I wanted to catch up on the blog before I turned the 'puter ovet to him.
Have a good evening...BBL

Mema Jo said...

T-Bird He hasn't turned over yet
If he does it is going to be accidental and not intentional!
His little feet have to dig in more
in order for him to flip. I remember when Buta Buta first did - at least before she did - we would all holler and try to coach her to do it.
It will be great fun watching -

Red said...

Hedgie, I didn't keep up with Windows. I had heard so much about Vista problems when I bought my new computer I ordered it with XP installed. From all I have heard about Vists I think that was a good move.

T-Bird said...

Hey Wanda and Hedgie-yeah I normally head to Bluefield every Friday-I keep trying but no one will agree to move to Bedford yet. :)

T-Bird said...

Red-I've got Vista and I have problems but I'm not sure if I'm causing them or my computer is or Vista. I don't know enough!! :(

Mema Jo said...

Well it's that time of the month for
bills to be paid...... I best get
on it. I will return...

BBL

T-Bird said...

later Mema Jo

Hedgie said...

Yes, Thelma and Red, I'm not crazy about Vista, either. XP was pretty decent. I installed MS Office 2007 pak because I liked it so much better.

T-Bird said...

I'm signing off for the night. Good night Red and Lynn and all my other eagle buds

MITS said...

good night Thelma..

MITS said...

great pic of Andrew, Sharon.

Hedgie said...

Nite-nite, T-bird! Sleep tight.

NatureNut said...

Evening Eagle Buds, Been busy reading emails...not done yet. They'll have to wait. Got more stuff to do to prepare for Early AM work tomorrow at Park. Will be hectic, but fun I hope. Kid's Day in the Kountry. Free, all day crafts, pony rides, pumpkin painting, hayrides & much, much, more.
Checked some cams now & pretty dark in Atlanta & 1 racoon in PA.
I've been seeing at both work places several juvie TVs--think most of you call them eewwiieess.They just look like they're Halloween decorations! Creepy, clustered in dead treetops!
BBL

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening everyone. Yes, Red, Andrew is a pretty tall feller. I have to look up to him. But, I don't care how tall he gets, he will always be my baby boy!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Bluefield Beavers just beat Richlands (Virginia) 35-14. GO BEAVERS!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Wow, we are getting to see the shadow of the microphone instead of Little Luney!

movin said...

Mema Jo said...

Panda Cam has good shot right now
Lun Lun lying her head down on the

Mema Jo said...

paula eagleholic said...

Gnite, Jim!

Hey Jo! Sent you an email...

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, I didn't recognize the song Megan posted this morning...it was yellow submarine?? I thought it had something to do with The Who, not the Beatles...

Red said...

Goodnight everyone. Me and the pups are tired and going to bed.

Mema Jo said...

I get upset that I don't know how to take Little Luney's picture.

He is so adorable. And did you see that Teeny Tiny Deer pic Lolly sent out? I cannot even imagine that...

paula eagleholic said...

Have a good sleep Red!

Mema Jo said...

Good Night Red - Hope your day alone
went well. After so many years of being together, I do miss hubby when he is away for a few days. But then when he returns I wonder why I didn't do more ME things while he was away. Ya Can't Win All The Time!

Mema Jo said...

I'm waiting for Megan to give us
"Quinn The Eskimo Man"

It's good to have music in your life!

Mema Jo said...

How was your mom tonight when you visited, Paula?

I did send you an email

Floralgirl said...

Quinn the Eskimo

NatureNut said...

Hey Paula, Hope your Mom is doing OK. I won't know what chore I'll be assigned until I get to Park.Hope it's a good one. I'll also see some longtime friends who only work at this ewvent and are at Park on days I'm not there. We should have great weather too.
Jo, I bet Sissy would keep Lil Luney company! LOL
Nighty Night to all ;>)

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, Jo ask and you shall receive...

paula eagleholic said...

Got you email Jo, and sent you another one.

Mom doing good, progress is slow, but attitude is still good.

paula eagleholic said...

Hey Megan - had me a nice honeycrisp apple tonight.

paula eagleholic said...

Thank Ya'll for asking about my Mom

Floralgirl said...

MMMmm...yummy, Paula- love those honeycrisp.

paula eagleholic said...

Mema Jo said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT---GOLDEN DREAMS
PRAYERS FOR ALL

magpie said...

Looks like I missed everyone AGAIN....

Just me and racoons waitin' on the Sea Eagles....or the Hoodys...

Hello and/or Good Night...
xo

magpie said...

I wish someone was awake to watch the Sea Eagle at Finney's with me..too many awesome poses to imagine! xo

magpie said...

Some of the Bloggers from the Puleston site think the eagles that have been on the nest recently, such as the Pics I sent on Yahoo, might be adults whereas the others we have been seeing might have been Juveniles. These last few views of them DO seem different...

Red said...

Good morning world. Do Dogs have clocks? Wish mine could figure out when it's too early to get up. ha

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING, RED. Maybe you could put them in you basement or garage for the night.

Costume Lady said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Red said...

Then who would keep me warm at night.

paula eagleholic said...

MOrning, all.

Live feed and still cam both down...sigh.

guess that means I shouldn't have any reason not to mow the lawn!

Ceil said...

Good morning. Wanda and Red and Margy (who was on very early and probably back in bed.)Do not blame her. Have a great day. Little chilly here but suppose to get warm. BBL

Ceil said...

Morning Paula. Go for it.

Red said...

I mowed yesterday, Paula. I'm sure glad I waited for some rain to settle the dust. Hopefully we won't have to mow many more times this season.

Costume Lady said...

Is there anyone on here who can give me the Dinner Guest List for the Open House? I can't open the email that Jo sent. I installed OpenOffice 2.4, but still can't open it.

paula eagleholic said...

I hear ya on the dogs, Red. If my alarm clock doesn't go off, they are sure to wake me...although it's funny...they will let me sleep in, but as soon as I start to wake up...even an arm movement, they are are all over me to get up!

paula eagleholic said...

Wanda - I'll send it in a moment...

paula eagleholic said...

Wanda - List has been sent.

Costume Lady said...

Thank you Paula...I need to get some things put together.

paula eagleholic said...

Wanda - If I were to try and put my spoiled dogs in the basement or close the bedroom door on them at night, they would keep me up all night with their whining and scratching and barking at the closed door!
