magpie said...

BWO does not seem to have had many visitors today...since this morning...

Beautifuyl streaks of sunlight at Pennsylvania woods:

magpie said...

Soon as I posted, the image changed.....same old, same old...

MITS said...

magpie said...

crows and grackles galore at Pix PA

magpie said...

maybe ALL grackles....

MITS said...

WOW....look at all of them

magpie said...

They're working it pretty good aren't they MITS ! One dove passed through a few mins ago too...

magpie said...

seeing a lot of them in flight too...
this is one of those times when I think the cam is replaying itself a little....

magpie said...

Wow - I think I chased Vicky off the Blog, or maybe SHE decided to that nap ! Quick as a bird, here, and then, gone.....Sigh....

magpie said...

I think there are some COWBIRDS in there too....

magpie said...

They are really enjoying going Head Down into those depressions...

magpie said...

And now Hen Turkeys...

Floralgirl said...

I'm off to take kid to homecoming dance...Do you wanna dance

MITS said...

ahhhh, homecoming dance, remember it well with son. Hope she has a good time:)

Deb said...

Hi, everyone. My fingers are frozen, but other than that I am keeping fairly warm. It is wet and cool here.

I have seen hawks, hawks, and more hawks. I guess I should say raptors. Good views of red tails, norhtern harriers and prairie falcon. Not so good views of feruginous hawk, short eared owl and burrowing owl. One good sighting of a wood duck!!

beautiful deer at PIX

MITS said...

DEB, didn't think you were coming back til Sunday night?????

Deb said...

I am at the hotel, have to leave for the banquet in about 5 minutes. We have seen lots and lots. These birders are serious about finding their birds, but I am enjoying myself. Most of the time I have no idea what the bird is we are looking at, just shake my head.

magpie said...

And now a Deer at the regular cam.

Outta here for a little while. Enjoy your respective Saturday evenings..

xox

Deb said...

Off to the banquet, talk to you all later.

magpie said...

See I shoulda checked comments first. Deer's been there awhile...

DEB You are one gal who might not know what you see the first time, but you sure learn it well thereafter!

When I grow up, I want to be a DEB

xoxo TTFN

MITS said...

Deb, you have had a wonderful few months...really happy for you

MITS said...

forgot to look for ISS tonight....won't be back til Wednesday

MITS said...

enormous raccoon on Pix CAM

MITS said...

3 fat raccoons at PA

NatureNut said...

Good Evening to Everyone that's someplace else!!
Wanted to check in before I konk out. Saw that both our cams are still off, so no record of any visits.I've been watching the nest area at Park for any fly-ins/outs as leaves are still covering nest. Don't know if they'll use that area again.
Had a wild but fun time at Park Kid's Day. 407 visitors!!!!Only critter I saw was a tiny green tree frog that a little girl pointed out on the ground.One of our naturalists found a small black rat snake & a boy was holding it & it wrapped around his arm like a baby boa!To loosen him, you let his head lay down on the ground & he starts to uncoil as he wants to crawl away. Thought that might be a good tip!
Congrats to Deb with the bird group festivities!
Saw Little Luney by himself awhile ago & raccoons at PA.
Back to Nascar race......

Costume Lady said...

THANKS FOR THAT SNAKE TIP, LORETTA.
I'll remember that if my unwanted houseguest wraps around me in the middle of the night!

Costume Lady said...

We're watching the race too..who do you rout for?

Costume Lady said...

ROOT...

Costume Lady said...

We use to have a little green tree frog, until he decided to jump on our 150 watt outside flood light.

Costume Lady said...

Where is everyone tonight?
I guess I will go back to the race. Have a good evening. Oh, it's almost over...didn't realize it was so late.

Costume Lady said...

THE EVENING...NOT THE RACE!

Red said...

I'm still lurking Wanda. Trying to get these dogs worn out. Bet they are still up early

Mema Jo said...

Hi Wanda - you are probably gone by now. Where is Dustin? Hope all is well with you - saw a lot of young people in their fancy garb at the restaurant where Hubby & I ate tonight. Oh My The Youth of it all!

Mema Jo said...

Hi Red - Can they go out for a good run before bed?

Deb said...

Jo, we are going owl searching in the morning at a place called Billy Goat Jump. I have to look it up, no idea where I am going. I need to get cleaned up tonight, been in the mud and the gumbo today. (Gumbo--mud that sticks to your shoes) Two men from Wisconsin are here hunting. They said this is the only time they have gone hunting and gotten taller as they hunted!

MITS said...

just been watching some HGTV shows, Wanda...

Deb said...

I see both cams are down, no live feed again. Darn! Next weekend we will see them in person!!

Costume Lady said...

No, Jo, I'm not gone...can't sit still long enough to watch the race. I have been clicking this poor old mouse to death, going from one thing to another. If you will read Momsters Yahoo Mail..you will see what my problem is.

Costume Lady said...

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT, DEB!

MITS said...

yes, Wanda can definitely relate to that problem:0)

Deb said...

Hi to Wanda, Red and Helen, too. At first I thought it was just Jo on here tonight!

Costume Lady said...

Jo, Dustin is here til Monday. I think he is mad at me because I have been on the 'puter ever since the shop closed. He tried to comandere it while I was taking my bath, but I'm too feisty to turn it over to him tonight. Told him he could have at it with GeeGee's 'puter all afternoon, tomorrow. Happy now...but still p----- at me :)

MITS said...

I have been like Wanda, just driving my mouse crazy, looking around for some things....did send off a Lobster-Gram gift certificate for my kids anniversary next week....the site was a bear to work with tonight, but got it taken care of.

Mema Jo said...

You sound like you went Mud Bogging!
Hi Wanda... I'll go see what you're
up to.
Did the eeeeeerrrrrs win tonight.
I guess we'll hear from Norma tomorrow.

Have fun Deb! South Mountain area:there is an owl search & banding in the late evening. I wish I could but... I told Megan to go..

Costume Lady said...

DEB, have you started growing any feathers yet? :)

Mema Jo said...

There isn't much to watch...
PA Woods you can catch some animals if you're lucky.

Deb said...

Google doesn't know where Billy Goat Jump is either. I guess I will find out tomorrow.

Costume Lady said...

Yes, the EEEEEERRRRRS won today, something like 17 to 6.

Deb said...

No feathers on me, Wanda, but I think there are some of a lot of these people. There is a man here who crawled out on the ice on the Missouri River last spring to take a picture of an ivory gull. What if the ice would have cracked!!

MITS said...

that sounds a little extreme, Deb, but JMHO:)

Hedgie said...

Wanda and Loretta.....race is not going well. Jr. is my man, and wrecked again. Think these COT's and tires are still not a right match. Argh......!! Between the "chase" and the COT, it jus tisn't racing anymore! Can you imagine was Dale, Sr. would have to say about all this garbage?
Yes, Norma's 'eers won.

Costume Lady said...

Oh, Lynn...for me, racing has just not been the same since Dale,Sr. died. He was a very exciting personality.

magpie said...

HEY WANDA !!

Meant to say, those pictures from Friday night on Wanda's Wishes are B O S S !!!

magpie said...

I was going to just languish tonight but got a call to work Sunday 6 am to noon....Sigh....
well, maybe I will see the Sea Eagles before I head out to work!

DEB: Billy Goat Jump is a great name...will be interested to hear all about it! Have Fun !!

Costume Lady said...

I am thinking I need to get out more...like Deb. Never a dull moment with her!
Margy, you and she would have a BALL!

Mema Jo said...

Well Deb - if the ice had cracked there wouldn't be a picture to see of
an Ivory gull -now would there!

Like Helen said - you can get
carried away!

Billy Goat Trail - Youtube has a clip on the hiking. Beautiful scenery by the water BUT nothing but rocks! Wear You Hiking Boots!!

Deb said...

Margie, if you work extra tomorrow, will you get off earlier on Friday night into Saturday??

Mema Jo said...

Hey Wanda You want to go to lunch?

Costume Lady said...

Margy, we did have a great time Friday night, but I sure missed Gene. I called him on the phone and the girls shouted Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Nah! They are bad, just like their father. That is what I am smirking about in the photo.

Costume Lady said...

Lunch, Jo? It's time for a Midnight Snack.

Costume Lady said...

Are you serious...when?

MITS said...

did someone say LUNCH....when...where???:):):)

Mema Jo said...

Helen and I are thinking about coming up but will probably wait until after the Open House weekend -
MTBR

Mema Jo said...

A.A.A.D.D.

That says it all! Not another word!

magpie said...

DEB - Nah, 'fraid not...it's a long story about these long shifts...and we have one supervisor out this week for training...Sure Wish I Could join the gang Friday night though!

Hedgie said...

Wanda, Dale, Sr. was my man! Remind me to tell you about my "meet and greet" him story!
Did somebody say LUNCH??? Where and when? Let me know--I'll be there, if you want me!

Costume Lady said...

Sounds good to me, Jo.

Hedgie said...

Margy, time for you to hit the hay! Since you were up most of last night, and now have to get up so early, you need to get some zzzzzzzzzzz's!

Costume Lady said...

I do believe we are a bunch of PARTY ANIMALS :)

magpie said...

Great little story about a Lab-Mix on Fox-5 news, "Tilla," which was rescued from Afghanistan 18 months ago, brought here, and is now ready for a home! Recommended: no other dogs or children for starters...I think that dog will have an offer before midnight...

Peace, Love, and Prayers,
God Bless Us, Every One.
