Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Aren't these pandas just fabulous!! I just told Sharon if I worked at Atlanta, I would have already been fired for wooling that baby to death. Truly miracles and such a blessing to get to watch them grow and live. Plus they brought me to ya'll. That is truly the miracle!!

Mema Jo said...

GOOD MORNING JIM !

Mema Jo said...

normabyrd said...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

It was, wasn't it Jo?! Good morning Jim!

Mema Jo said...

The clouded leopards are really large cats - I didn't think they were that big... Wouldn't it be great to see a baby one? !!

MITS said...

Tai weighs 48 pounds

Mook weighs 26 pounds
Clouded weights vary seasonally

they have mated several times...but so far no little cloudeds

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' MOVIN'JIM!---How is your weather---are you getting any of that smoke---I see on TV!!!---Hope not!!---Hope you are enjoying a beautiful day!

Red said...

Sounds like Norma may need to download MS Media Player again. Software does get corrupted sometimes.

Hedgie said...

Dental and doctors apptmt. this afternoon. See you all later!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' RED!---You are so kind!!---I need to take it up to the PUTER PLACE!!----

MITS said...

Mema Jo said...

days just maybe..........

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE---Remember to stick your finger nail into your arm---when in dental chair!!---ho!---It works--ask SUZANNE!!----good wishes---

movin said...

Good morning, Mits, Norma ~~

The weather in So Cal is not the usual "beautiful" thanks to very strong desert winds whipping the area. ...The Santa Ana Winds ...

I hear on the radio that they are getting the smoke from a fire a fair distance north of L.A., but I haven't smelled any here yet.

Just praying that no more fires start and that they can contain the the one to the north, which is out of control now owing to the winds.



[:~D]

Jim

Mema Jo said...

There comes another big one through..
They are pretty close together - both going in the same direction

Ceil said...

Good morning to everyone who came on after I was on earlier.
Sissy, Sharon, Norma, Red, Jim, Paula, Lynn, Deb and Jo.
Norman I love the little seal.
Oops, sister I forgot you. Mits did you see that the manatee died? Such a shame. Beautiful animals who seem to get in the way of humans.

MITS said...

color back on at Maine nest

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Boy, it gets dark quick, fast, and in a hurry in Finland, don't it?

MITS said...

yes, saw that...love the manatees:)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Panda under straw. Cute little boy we have there.

movin said...

Wow!! Things are really looking up in the world of finance this morning!

normabyrd said...

GRANDKIDS love the MANATEES too!!--They are wonderful animals!

Deb said...

The little hummer has started building a new nest as of Oct. 8. That is all that is posted on the hummer site, so we will have to look for more news coming up.

Mema Jo said...

Two incoming calls in a row - BUT the otters waited for me! Thanks for the alert Mits!

glo said...

Good morning every one and a Happy Birthday to Wanda I hope your day is special and you feel very celebrated.

Deb said...

The divers site at Bonaire is still stuck on Aug. 4th. I hope they get it fixed pretty soon.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Deb said...

Snow at Old Faithful:

Old Faithful

normabyrd said...

WHOA! DEB---I check the DIVER'S site at least once a week!---I really enjoy watching them!!!--Almost like TAI!!----We were watching them so often---I was sure they would recognize us if we met them on the street!!---DUH!--I was getting desperate!!---ho!

normabyrd said...

DEB!!!!!---That truly is AWESOME--
BEAUTIFUL---GLORIOUS---etc. etc. etc.----thank you----

Deb said...

I check it all the time too, Norma. Then one day I thought I had been seeing the same thing for quite awhile. Sooo, I finally looked at the cam date and it is stuck!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' GLO!!---You haven't had snow yet have you??---Our weather is just too--too BEAUTIFUL!!---I pray it stays that way through the weekend!!!----

grannyblt said...

Good afternoon everyone in eagle land. I haven't posted in quite a while, but I check in and read the blog several times a week.
We have had outstanding fall weather here in western PA. Love those fall colors......went to Benezette PA--in Elk County, to see what else but elk last week.We saw about 18 different ones. Those bulls certainly have wide racks.
Hope you all have a great time at your get together.

Lynne

normabyrd said...

DEB!!---I FIGURED IT OUT WHEN THE FISH WERE IN THE SAME PLACE EACH TIME I TURNED IT ON!!!---took me a while! ho!---

Deb said...

How wonderful to see so many elk! I have only seen a few at a time and always from a distance.

MITS said...

looks cold, Deb..

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Boy, it does look cold, don't it!! It is 73 here and so beautiful!!

normabyrd said...

GRANNYBLT----MISS you!!---Are you still finding time to bake home made BREAD??--ho!---If we have ELK in WV---it's very few!---DEER is every where---WV is #1 state---one is more apt to hit a deer---I think PA IS #2 or #3!---Please check back again soon!!!!!

grannyblt said...

Deb, we saw these elk in people's yards and close to the road. None in the "elk viewing area" --mostly in family groups bull, cow, and youngster.

grannyblt said...

Still baking bread!--gotta go to a craft workshop--ciao

MITS said...

What state has the most deer?
In: Deer Elk and Caribou, US States Cities and Territories [Edit]

[Edit]
Pennsylvania. Then West Virgina, then Virgina.

just checked this on Goggle

Red said...

I'm leaving for a BIG panda nap. BBL

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

There is alot of panda napping going on (wish I was a panda)!!

normabyrd said...

GRANNYBLT---Forgot we do have an ELK RIVER--ELK GARDEN--& an ELK SPRING----& ELK have been seen--VERY--VERY FEW!!!!---

movin said...

Thanks for the shot of Old Faithful, Deb.

There are people in the viewing area too ... I'm surprised.

Maybe it's "global warming," but I've been there twice...early to mid September, and they were closing everything down and locking it for winter. Light snows like these had already begun by the first week in September.

I wonder if this delay is typical nowdays. Anyway, it's very beautiful and awe-inspiring as always. That's good.



[:~D]

Jim

normabyrd said...

Published just last week HELEN---& was on NPR--(PUBLIC RADIO)---One is more apt to get HIT in WV--

MITS said...

whatever, Norma:)

Deb said...

State most likely to hit a deer in, as ranked by State Farm Insurance:

1. WV
2. Michigan
3. PA
4. Iowa
5. Arkansas
6. SD
7. Wisconsin
8. Montana
9. ND
10. Virginia

MITS said...

my list was not for deer hit...my list was for population

Ceil said...

Norma I could be wrong but what Helen said is that they are saying there are more deer in PA. WV just hits more of them.
Off to doctors appt.

Deb said...

The top three on your list are all in the top 10 on State Farm's list. I wonder if State Farm only uses their clients or total accidents per state. I would think total per state.

Deb said...

Yep, total per state. If you don't want to worry about hitting a deer, move to Hawaii, number 50!

Ceil said...

Deb I did not know that Hawaii even had deer.

normabyrd said...

JIM!!---I hope you don't get the smoke & smog ---what they have been showing on TV---Looks like you might need a mask!!!---

normabyrd said...

HEY!! NO PROBLEM----I am just glad we don't have that many ELK --- Can't imagine what it would be like to have those 'big guys' running around in our lawns---That would scare me!!!----Husband used to go ELK hunting in MONTANA!!---

Deb said...

I don't think they do either, that is probably why it is number 50! I will check to see if they do!

normabyrd said...

FUNNY!!---Would think we would see an ELK on the PA site!!---lots of deer---

Deb said...

They do have them, but they are not a natural inhabitant. They were introduced to Hawaii in 1959.

normabyrd said...

food time----later!!---

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Turkey party in PA. Big ole fat ones!!

Eagle at BWO

Bob Quinn said...

Hey all! I was quite surprised to find the BW Wildlife Drive open yesterday when I visited. According to Lisa it's not scheduled to be open until November. She thought it might be temporary because there is still work to be done (which I could tell). Anyway, here are some photos from yesterday:

Sunday's Photos

Bob

MITS said...

BEAUTIFUL, BOB

paula eagleholic said...

Beautiful, Bob, just beautiful!

Bob Quinn said...

Thanks Mits, Paula. With a little luck maybe I can get someone making a nest visit Saturday. Probably not likely though with all the people around.

Deb said...

Wow, Bob, beautiful pictures!!

paula eagleholic said...

Jinx, Mits :):)

Bob, they may visit early morn or late evening...

Bob Quinn said...

I could stay late to try to get a picture and skip dinner at the Ruminator Tavern!

Bob Quinn said...

Just kidding. I'd be too afraid someone might throw me in their trunk if they thought I would miss dinner.

Deb said...

I want to go early to the nest, do I need to get permission to do that? If they come early, I would like to try to get a picture.

movin said...

Thanks much, Bob... really interesting and beautiful photos from your excursion to BW.


[:~D]

Jim

Bob Quinn said...

Thanks Jim. If I'd have known the Wildlife Drive was opened I would have gone earlier and spent more time.

Deb said...

I can't get the Oregon cam open, so I checked the Maine forum. They have snow already. I'll get a link to some pictures from the 10th.

Deb said...

Oregon snowy nest

Mema Jo said...

Hi Bob - Photos are awesome, fantastic, superb, just beautiful.
Thank you!

Mema Jo said...

I wonder how and if there have been fledges from the OR nest. I don't know why those OR birds don't move out of the area. Seems they don't mind it one bit.

Deb said...

BBL!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Has the birthday girl been on today? I don't remember seeing her.

Nest Update

10/13/08:
Bob Quinn has posted new photos from Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Check out the wonderful sunset shots and also shots of an eagle on our Osprey Platform.

From Lisa.

MITS said...

Monday, October 13
I have often heard people say that those who are most adept make what they do appear deceptively effortless. Lun Lun may just be proving that adage true; and, she is doing so with consummate tolerance. This seems to be the case with many animal parents. It seems to come naturally; although, we know that for many species it is not just a matter of hard-wired instinct. Often, as is true for humans, good parenting is the product of being parented well. Having felt challenged by parenthood, it is humbling to watch Lun Lun attend to her cub with such patience.


The cub continues to flourish under Lun Lun’s exemplary maternal care. Since Saturday he gained 66.8 grams, which brings his total weight up to 1760.3 grams.

Costume Lady said...

I heard singing and laughter and chatter...had to stop and see what was going on. What do you know, it is MY BIRTHDAY. I have read every good wish and greeting and listened to each and every card. You guys are terrific. I got an early morning delivery of two huge boxes of costumes which I was told would not come to me before Halloween, so I canceled the order. THEY DON'T LISTEN VERY WELL!
Anyway, I have been steaming costumes ALL DAY. My hair is steamed also and hanging in my face. I needed to take a break and I'm so glad to sit and read all your wonderful greetings. I feel SPECIAL, LOVED, CELEBRATED, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, FRIENDLY, AND 38! Thank You and my love to you all!

MITS said...

you deserve the good wishes, WANDA:)

Mema Jo said...

Here's a toast to you Wanda!

May you be forever young

It's good to have you for my friend

Mema Jo said...

Just thinking that if neither cam is up/running, How are we going to
promote our eagles. Going to have to schedule a fly by with Lib & Belle.

Mema Jo said...

It must be everyone's dinner time...

So BBL

Deb said...

I went to pick up the dogs and, of course, I had to drive over the new bridge in Yankton. Driving over the new bridge took me down to the dam, where two osprey put on a show for me. I am downloading the pictures now.

NatureNut said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO WANDA,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOOOUUUU!!!!


Have been off 'puter all day--busy & dentist appt. for achy tooth while chewing only. He needs to do root canal, but can't until Nov!So I have Rx pain killers when needed.If I become extra whacky in WV, blame it on the drugs!!!LOL

Deb said...

Discovery Bridge

The old bridge was a double decker, there is a picture of it. The old bridge is not going to be torn down, it is historical and will be kept as part of a walking, history thing.

NatureNut said...

Trying to check back & see Bob, you've done it again!! Beautiful pics! You can't stay late at NCTC nest because we are going to FOLLOW you to dinner!! ;>))

TODAY'S NATURE STORY---Was on deck this AM w/coffee watching a squirrel with huge walnut in it's mouth.It was walking along top of fence from house behind us onto our fence and kept going along the right side of our house til out of view, towards front yard I guess.A minute or so later, I looked to my left & squirrel w/out walnut was on the deck & walked up & sniffed my shoe!!!!!

Deb,wonderful Old Faithful--Thx for link!
If I don't get everything read tonight, think I'll be able to catch up at Park tomorrow--should be nice and quiet. BBL-Little People on TV

Mema Jo said...

One of the cities on the eastern shore on RT 50 had a new span built -
not as long as the one you have but
they didn't tear down the old one -
left access to it for fishing.

Ceil said...

I think that is the Choptank Bridge , Jo.

Mema Jo said...

lol Loretta it's a good thing he
didn't bite your toe off & go bury
it!
Sorry that you are having a tooth problem..... Don't you love the scheduling procedures.

This blog is acting crazy with the format - throwing my words down onto the next line..........

Floralgirl said...

Oh, what?? Bob is threatening to be late for dinner??? Nice pics today, Bob, thanks for sharing...

Mema Jo said...

Ceil - is it going into Cambridge?

Mema Jo said...

Bom Bom Bom....here we come!

Never fear the cheese cake is loaded! See all of you Friday nite or Saturday!

Deb said...

Have a good and safe trip, Lolly!

Hedgie said...

Caught up on emails and took a panda nap when I got home from apptmts. Now caught up here. Probably need to check mail again!Bob, pics are absolutely marvelous!
Nice bridge, Deb!
Got to watch a state trooper going through video surveillance this afternoon...Subway at our little shopping center was broken into last night and robbed...shopping center owner installed cams last month...unit is in my guys carpet store...he still hadn't found anything when he had to leave, so will be back in the am to continue looking. Grainy images....glad I don't have to watch it for 7 hour.
Save travels, Lolly. See you Fri.!!!

Hedgie said...

More great pics, Deb!
Saw where our (other) Lynne w/ an e was on today! She doesn't join us often.

Mema Jo said...

Sure hope to see you Friday.

Call when you're in the area.......

MITS said...

love the pics, Deb....specially the ones with the osprey and the fish it caught

Lolly said...

Will do! I sure am hoping you guys furnish cooler weather. It is not terrifically hot here, but warmer than I like and muggy. Supposed to rain tomorrow, hopefully not before we are on the road.

wvgal_dana said...

Weather could change but on mine it is saying 50 on Saturday. Anne better wear 2 pairs of long johns lol

Safe travels Lolly and Gods Speed.

Mema Jo said...

Saw the pics Deb - You're getting to be a pro picture taker of flying high in the sky osprey/eagles..
They were great.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb just looked at your great pictures. I like them all but I do like the butterfly on the purple plant. Is that milkweed?

In picture 4 what is the Osprey at the top doing?

Hedgie said...

Thanks for the schedule, Jo!
Paula.....are you home? Do you have the table schedule yet?

NatureNut said...

Have great trip Lolly & everyone from far away!!
Will check Deb's pics tomorrow.Can't wait!
Saw Little People & then had to watch John & Kate---great family.
Yesterday I checked Shep. weather for Sat. & it said 61 as high & cloudy. That was in the paper w/Jo's letter to Ed.

wvgal_dana said...

Hard day nite all
Prayers for all needs.

Deb said...

Dana, the plant is thistle, I think, but I will double check. The two osprey together were just soaring in the wind, they would twist and turn all over. It was so fun to watch, I am sure I missed some good pictures, but I was fascinated watching them.

Deb said...

Yes, it is thistle. I want to know what kind of butterfly that is. It reminded me of a moth in the center.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks, Jo, that is what the weather is doing here now. It was 75 yesterday and I think we were lucky to hit 50 today. Tomorrow will be mid 50's. I broke down and let the furnace cycle through once to get the chill out of the house.

Mema Jo said...

Deb - when Loretta looks at pics tomorrow she will probably know the butterfly species......

Going to need long sleeves this
weekend.. Good Breathing Weather!

Mema Jo said...

I need to rise & shine early tomorrow morning - at least earlier then I want to.......

I'll be closing down shortly.
Going to get ready.......
