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!!

HEDGIE---Remember to stick your finger nail into your arm---when in dental chair!!---ho!---It works--ask SUZANNE!!----good wishes---
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
There comes another big one through..They are pretty close together - both going in the same direction
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.
color back on at Maine nest
Boy, it gets dark quick, fast, and in a hurry in Finland, don't it?
yes, saw that...love the manatees:)
Panda under straw. Cute little boy we have there.
Wow!! Things are really looking up in the world of finance this morning![:~D]Jim
JIM---FIRE--N of LA---3,000 acres--BURNED!----SANTA ANNA WINDS!!!---Pic of LA---FULL OF SMOKE---because of the winds!! Turn on CNN!
GRANDKIDS love the MANATEES too!!--They are wonderful animals!
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.
Two incoming calls in a row - BUT the otters waited for me! Thanks for the alert Mits!
Good morning every one and a Happy Birthday to Wanda I hope your day is special and you feel very celebrated.
The divers site at Bonaire is still stuck on Aug. 4th. I hope they get it fixed pretty soon.
SHARON---I keep thinking he is a she!!---tail shorter too!!--HE STEALS EVERY ONE'S HEART!!!---Just ask SISSY?? ho!---I remember feeling that way about TAI!!!---I was just sure that if I had gone to the NZOO----he would recognize me!!--ho!----He was ONE COOL PANDA!!---
I need some lunch -BBL
Norma, Tai slept through most of my visit with him, little imp!
Snow at Old Faithful:Old Faithful
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!
DEB!!!!!---That truly is AWESOME--BEAUTIFUL---GLORIOUS---etc. etc. etc.----thank you----
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!
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!!!----
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
DEB!!---I FIGURED IT OUT WHEN THE FISH WERE IN THE SAME PLACE EACH TIME I TURNED IT ON!!!---took me a while! ho!---
How wonderful to see so many elk! I have only seen a few at a time and always from a distance.
looks cold, Deb..
Boy, it does look cold, don't it!! It is 73 here and so beautiful!!
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!!!!!
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.
Still baking bread!--gotta go to a craft workshop--ciao
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
I'm leaving for a BIG panda nap. BBL
There is alot of panda napping going on (wish I was a panda)!!
GRANNYBLT---Forgot we do have an ELK RIVER--ELK GARDEN--& an ELK SPRING----& ELK have been seen--VERY--VERY FEW!!!!---
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
Published just last week HELEN---& was on NPR--(PUBLIC RADIO)---One is more apt to get HIT in WV--
State most likely to hit a deer in, as ranked by State Farm Insurance:1. WV2. Michigan3. PA4. Iowa5. Arkansas6. SD7. Wisconsin8. Montana9. ND10. Virginia
my list was not for deer hit...my list was for population
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.
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.
Yep, total per state. If you don't want to worry about hitting a deer, move to Hawaii, number 50!
Deb I did not know that Hawaii even had deer.
JIM!!---I hope you don't get the smoke & smog ---what they have been showing on TV---Looks like you might need a mask!!!---
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!!---
I don't think they do either, that is probably why it is number 50! I will check to see if they do!
FUNNY!!---Would think we would see an ELK on the PA site!!---lots of deer---
They do have them, but they are not a natural inhabitant. They were introduced to Hawaii in 1959.
Turkey party in PA. Big ole fat ones!!
Eagle at BWO
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 PhotosBob
Beautiful, Bob, just beautiful!
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.
Wow, Bob, beautiful pictures!!
Jinx, Mits :):)Bob, they may visit early morn or late evening...
I could stay late to try to get a picture and skip dinner at the Ruminator Tavern!
Just kidding. I'd be too afraid someone might throw me in their trunk if they thought I would miss dinner.
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.
Thanks much, Bob... really interesting and beautiful photos from your excursion to BW.[:~D]Jim
Thanks Jim. If I'd have known the Wildlife Drive was opened I would have gone earlier and spent more time.
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.
Oregon snowy nest
Hi Bob - Photos are awesome, fantastic, superb, just beautiful.Thank you!
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.
Has the birthday girl been on today? I don't remember seeing her.
HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU*** WANDA ***YOU SWEET, YOUNG THING.ONLY 39, IT'S PHENOMENAL![:~D]Jim
Wow, Bob, you are quite a photographer. Those are really beautiful. Thanks for sharing them with us!
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY WANDA!" May you have a celebrating day!
Happy Birthday Wanda!

Thanks Deb for "Old Faithful" webcam.
Long time no time grannyblt..been wondering about you. Sounds like you have been keeping yourself busy up in PA.
Nest Update10/13/08: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.
Monday, October 13I 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.Debbie FordeCuratorial Assistant
And they were so worried about LL in the beginning!
BWO is a sight for any eyes wanting and eagle fix! Beautiful!
I just wanted to make a point with my comment!!
Speedy the chipmunk is in the PA woods.

Wow Deb your really on the ball today.....Oregon Nest ty I did forget they get snow in October.Great pics on the other site of the male and female. ty
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!
you deserve the good wishes, WANDA:)
Here's a toast to you Wanda!May you be forever young It's good to have you for my friend
Just thinking that if neither cam is up/running, How are we going topromote our eagles. Going to have to schedule a fly by with Lib & Belle.
It must be everyone's dinner time...So BBL
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.
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
Discovery BridgeThe 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.
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
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.
I think that is the Choptank Bridge , Jo.
lol Loretta it's a good thing hedidn't bite your toe off & go buryit! 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..........

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.!!!
More great pics, Deb!Saw where our (other) Lynne w/ an e was on today! She doesn't join us often.
Sure hope to see you Friday.Call when you're in the area.......
love the pics, Deb....specially the ones with the osprey and the fish it caught
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.
Weather could change but on mine it is saying 50 on Saturday. Anne better wear 2 pairs of long johns lolSafe travels Lolly and Gods Speed.
Saw the pics Deb - You're getting to be a pro picture taker of flying high in the sky osprey/eagles..They were great.
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?
Thanks for the schedule, Jo!Paula.....are you home? Do you have the table schedule yet?
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.
Hard day nite allPrayers for all needs.
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.
Yes, it is thistle. I want to know what kind of butterfly that is. It reminded me of a moth in the center.
Shepherdstown WVFridayPartly sunny. Highs in the mid 60sFriday NightMostly cloudy. Lows in the lower 40sSaturdayMostly sunny. Highs in the upper 50s.Saturday NightClear. Lows in the upper 30s.SundayMostly sunny. Highs in the lower 60s.
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.
Deb - when Loretta looks at pics tomorrow she will probably know the butterfly species......Going to need long sleeves thisweekend.. Good Breathing Weather!
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.......
Oh, Oh, Oh...I'm missing everyone....they are going to turn out the lights on me.LOLLY...have a wonderful trip. Travel mercies will be said for you.
WandaDid you have a really good day despite the work you had to do?
DANA...not milkweed. I'll have to send you a photo of milkweed. Deb is right, it's a thistle.
Hi Kids, I had to see all the OR eagle pics & nestoration video in the snow!Deb's butterfly is a painted lady.I was seeing quite a few in the last couple weeks on sedum at farmhouse office. They are almost more beautiful on underside.Will have to check pics I got then.One of our artists wants to make a long mural & paint the wing underside on it.
Weather here unreal--83 today,80 TU & maybe next day too!
Thanks, Loretta. I googled it and found lots of pictures. It is the first one I recall ever seeing.
Look up a few Loretta at the weather for the weekend... Cool & Crisp
