GOOD MORNING STEVE...GREAT WEEKEND!
Oh Dear, Maine eagle just flew off.Wanda, did you see it ???
Others should be coming over.Thanks for the heads up Wanda and Good Morning.Eagle just flew out of Maine.
Thanks for the New Thread Alert, and Thanks Steve: a fresh slate for us to fill up !
Wanda, we had a brief visit at our nest, Sissy, did you get a pic?I see that Eagle at BWO, DANA..it came back for us !
Now 2 eagles at BWO
Two Eagles at BWO !
Now we just need some turkeys to round things out...
Great minds Margy lol
If I don't get on the ball and pay attention, I'm never going to see our eagles. Each time I get on here to wait for them, I get distracted and miss them!
Yes, it's fun to be having this much fun with company !
That eagle in the platform is big !Fishing must be good these days...
I guess I would fly out if someone starting banging nails near MY nest...
I see where DEB got home safely and was downloading her photos. I am so anxious to see them. I can remember when she was asking about cameras when she got this one...she chose well! Her photo of the Royal Pair in the tree knocked my socks off!
Our nest looks so pretty with the greens, white of tree limbs, dark brown of sticks and then the light brown of the leaves in the nest. Perfect place to grow a family of Eagles ( :
Hey, I made it. Got lost there for a second!! Good morning Wanda!!
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE
Has PAULA given us any photos yet? I am not with the program these days. I don't have time to search for goodies or check out the Bluey Linkeys. What is the problem with Mason?
Two eagles at BWO!!
I don't know Wanda, have not had time to check, bluies either.
Wanda - basically it sounds like an insurance paperwork thing, the operation went well, and the family is trying to get him transfered back to Bryn Mawr...I think just a paper battle in the midst of all the stress...but Mr. E. sounds pretty determined to get it taken care of...
the Beautiful Mei Xiang is enjoying her treats from a bag:)
Paula was taking time with the pups, and posted a note on Yahoo regarding sales, and a thank you..last last night...busy work day for her today, and a visit with her Mom later this afternoon...
Gene says GOOD MORNING LADIES. He really enjoyed the Open House activities. And the company of so many wonderful ladies. He thinks you all are special and understands why I enjoy this group so much.
Boy Luney has been sleeping alone with Lun Lun there or not all morning.
He is OUR, favorite Capt.:)
Nature Nut added some photos to the Open House Album...I'm sure it will grow here within the next few days, once people get caught up with the Other parts of their life...Yes, Good to hear that DEB is back at her nest, look forward to hear from Lolly and Anne-Marie too...
Gotta take care of a few morning things...You folks have a good day if I miss you before I come back...xoxo
Bunch of deer at the washed out salt lick...
Oh, and he also enjoyed chatting with the men. Aaron was at our table (he has never met him before) and said he was very interesting to talk to. Jennifer is his special friend...they share a love for candies cherries! LOL
It's hard to find the words to describe the Captain, Wanda... all superlatives, though...TTFN...xo
Okay, one last thing: Hen Party in Pennsylvania !
Oh, my goodness...he is telling me all kind of things about all of you to say. Helen is his TESTER for Eagle Talons...she was the first one to taste it. She liked it, so that is the receipe he uses. And then there is SASSY SISSY and on and on.
It was good to have Margy at our table. She is a hard one to capture...she is like a little bird, flying all around. She did settle down long enough to have a good conversation with. She is a sweetie.
Later Margy...I know you'll be checking in...HAVE A GOOD DAY!
Wanda, you both are just the greatest!! All of you are. It was such a special weekend. Hard to even describe to my friends. Definitely a weekend that had to be experienced, not explained!!Morning Mits!! How are ya?
yes, she is like a hummer, just flies around, what energy, wish I had some of it.
hey Sassy, how are you?....I'm just great:):):).....you should turn on QVC, their special of the day is some little interactive animals one of which is a panda...or go online to see it
Helen, that is a perfect discription of Margy...like a hummingbird! LOL
Morning feeding at Atlanta
She is a sweetheart....:)
Lots of hens at PA
I best get off of here. Another busy day awaits me. Costumes this morning and a doctor visit for GeeGee this afternoon. I am so lucky to have Gene...he takes care of the shop when I can't. Gotta love him! Be back this evening. Have a good day.
the commotion you hear going on at NZ is the ongoing building of a new exhibit for the Elephants...it is going to be a wonderful home for the zoos' pachyderms:)
the orangutans are playing ghost this a.m., got their sheets on:)

I don't know. I think that is Mei draped over that log. Mits?
WANDA!!---Just viewed your pics!!----GREAT!!!!----EVERY ONE WAS HAVING A GOOD TIME!!!---Thanks for posting them!!!---
yes, you are correct, Sissy, Mei is draped over the log, Tai is roaming around his yard.
Luney is getting more and more mobile.
Eagle at BWO!
Fine specimen of Thanksgiving bird at PA.
HEY SISSY!!----You get my vote---that it is the 'LITTLE PRINCE' posing on the log!!----
Morning all. Much warmer this am--already 50; gusty SW wind blowing. (=MORE leaves coming down!)Margy, hoping you don't get that dreaded page...one dispatcher sounds very sick!Cam looks like it's in color again....anyone else see that? Any visitors this am? (I haven't read thru' comments yet).
it was Mei on the log, Norma:):)
SORRY SISSY!!----I VOTED WRONG!! ho!----but that is par for the course for me!! ho!
well they do look alike:)
GREAT MINDS HELEN!!---ho!---except mine is wrong!!---

it really is harder to tell on the cam, because he is getting so big;)
MORNIN' HEDGIE!!---I heard you folks had all kinds of cheese cake!!!---Didn't save any for RED or me!!----They said Sunday---it was DELICIOUS!!!---ho!
Good Morning LynnYes we had an early visitor looked like Liberty. Spidey web was still around nest.
Panda climbing!! Tai is just wandering everywhere this morning.
Haven't seen the one in Memphis yet this morning, must be sleeping in.
Hi ya' Helen, Norma, Dana!!Yes, Norma, cheesecake was delicious! Company was even better. And you were missed!
hi ya, Lynn:)
Good morning my friend Lynn!! Great quotes you sent out!!
DANA!----FIVE (5) DONKEYS today!!---looks rainy there again today!!------So did you enjoy the cheese cake too???----(i know the answer)ho!!!
SISSY!!---I always say he is strolling over his estate!!---ho!---LITTLE IMP!!----He has done that for a long time!!!

DANA!!---She told us Sunday what was in her cheese cake!!---Sounded almost WICKED!!---ho!!---
Hi Sissy!!Don't know if she got called in or not, Norma....but it's a possibility. One dispatcher sounds really sick, and it's a hard job to do w/out a voice! Getting ready to head out for the day....bone scan...4+ hr. routine--all because I opened my stupid mouth and complained about bursitis in my hip acting up(which I've had off and on for over 10 yrs.), so Dr. says he'll sleep better if we verify that it's not a metastesis....felt like asking if he was going to pay the co-pay! Oh, well, it is what it is.Talk to all this evening! Have a good day.
PLEASE TELL ME WHO SENT ME THE 'GIFT PACKAGE'??----I really want to thank them!!---Had the beautiful EAGLE MAGNET & OTHER GOODIES!!---THANKS!!---THANKS!!LATER---I have a meeting this am!!
Try to have a good day Lynn. I know those tests are so expensive but the peace of mind will be worth it. We need you to stay healthy! It is what it is. That is the greatest saying ever.
well Mei got tired of Tian fast this a.m.
Fishcrows at BWOCoffee and paper bbl
Oooppsss I spotted that up there Lynn. Keeping you in prayer for good results!!!
Good morning, everyone. I did sleep in, Norma. All my pictures are loaded, but it will take some time to sort them all out, get rid of the bad, etc. I took over 500 pictures. I have my work cut out for me today!! I see where Bob said he didn't have people pictures. I am bad at that, too. No people pictures from Sunday. :( I will have to get some from Paula, Lolly and Anne.
morning Deb, animal pics are much more interesting;)
keeper was just calling Mei Xiang to come down for her treat.
Sissy talked me into getting my camera Saturday night and now I am glad she did! I don't think I take good people pictures inside, so I don't do it often.
Mei Xiang loves her frosty treats...nice close up pic
Eagle at BWO.
A setback for Mason: This is from the Caringbridge site this morning:"We can't break Mason out today. Unfortunately there is a spot on the back of his head where the shunt sticks out that has become a problem. Remember the Malmut? His helmet was customized to accommodate that area. I guess it wasn't protected enough post operation for the cranioplasty. Dr.Aaribee will have to move the shunt to the front of his head. Surgery is supposed to be tomorrow afternoon, earliest release is Friday. If he didn't need the shunt at all would be preferable, but our hands are tied. The issue of re admission to Bryn Mawr is off the table until after this next procedure.Were hanging in there. Love to All Brian, Mason and Sylvia."Prayers for Many Friends, today.
Good Morning Everyone!Took a while to read all your comments and get thru emails. I havebeen watching the NZ otters! One was playing in a pile of leaves! And now they are having water battles.Beautiful day out there - Leaves are coming down! One of my maples is already barren. I love to hear about all your memories from this past weekend..I don't think any of us there will ever forget it.
That must be so disappointing for Mason's family. Bless their hearts. They are definitely gonna have to learn a new normal!! Their lives are changed for sure. Prayers, prayers, and more prayers.
Update on Mason
Leaves are certainly falling now!! This cold snap will bring them down fast.
Today is Tom's birthday. He is 53 years young!!
Take time to read some of the Guest Book entries when you are on the site. I mentioned yesterday late that the band were at the local high school and the Ram Band played the special "Mason" song. My son was there and said it was so moving since he was well aware of Mason..
Watch for some cards for TOM....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TOM;)
He said thank you!!
GREAT WEST VIRGINIA DAY FOR A BIRTHDAY - - HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. SISSY !! xoxo

Okay, Mema, we're with ya'! We got our assignment from the Boss ! xo
You might want to treat yourself to BWO first JO...He is standing guard!
That was a strange view on the NZ cam.
Good mornign everyone. I did actually make it here while it was still morning even out east. Getting off to a late start. Have been busy looking at Elia pictures LOL. Everything else gets to wait when new pictures come in of this one. She remains a charmer for sure. This time it was the pilot of the airplane. Elia has earned her wings. Too cute. Long fun story and I shall continue to fly Airtran...they are special folks especially to my grand daughter :). ALERT there will be a few new photos on Elias Blog in a little while :).Hope all of you are off to a great day. Gorgoeus here. Chilly fall with brilliant blue sky and those falling leaves.
what was strange about it, Sissy?
Tom said he wants a panda for his birthday!!
***GOOD MORNING******ALL MY FRIENDS******IN EAGLE LAND***C(°ٿ°)DJim
It was a strange angle Mits. Just one I hadn't seen before. Like it was behind the panda and looking out the glass towards the people watching.
there are 40 plus cams for different views, that is why I like doing the cams on the 4 to 7 shift when they are inside, only about a dozen cams to man then.
sloth bears demo going on at NZ
Gobblers are scratching
I mighta missed it, I see people walking past, MITS - am I in the right place?
sorry MITS- not crafty with this site, but found three other angles..
The sloth bear is pretty energetic..bet that water is a little cool!
PB and banana samich for lunch!! Now that is good stuff!!
if you are on the sloth bear page, Margy, they have 4 different cams, plus clouded leopards, one is there now, and fishing cats and small-clawed otters, Jo loves watching them.
When will you go do the cam again, Mits?
I think I'm sceduled for last Wednesday in October
Cold here today, 48 degrees. BRR!
Found 'em MITS - Thanks....Clouded Loepard looks like it is snoozin' - Might give me an idea...I better get back to work !(home-work, that is...)TTFN - xo
Actually headed out in one half hr...Sissy - I sure hope your wish to be a panda comes true 'cause it would make Tom very happy on his b-day lolAll the little otters were out earlier... Hope you get to see them.
it is 65 here, Sissy:)
Secret Squirrel in PA!
Good afternoon everyone!! Been working this morning and hadn't even looked at the blog. Will try to catch up in a minute. Hope all are having a wonderful day!
Mits look at that cam at NZ. That is a different view, isn't it?
Never mind. Changed back now.
that was Tian, mugging for the visitors....right next to his den is the cam room....they have a blind between him and the cam room, otherwise he would be begging us for treats....
Tian is looking into the cam room
Nice Landing Sissy ~ Hi Sharon..You are good, well-behaved, attentive to detail, and task-oriented....wish I was more like you! I have that "Disease" that Wanda talked about a week or so ago... But I am making some progress..boy have I saved a bunch of useless stuff, sure it was "valuable" when I saved it...but now?? half and half.TTFN again..xo
I have Value Village coming tomorrow, and am cleaning out some drawers too, Margy
did you all know our cam is stuck on 9:37a.m.?
sent e-mail to Steve
Well - that is one way to make sure Mema Jo does not miss any Nest Action....!Out to run some "errands."Hey, I have found some good recipes, including the famous Neimann Marcus chocolate chip cookie recipe, the one that cost that gal $250, so she shared it with all her friends via email ! They told her "two-fifty" and put it on her charge card...she thought, $2.50 - that was several years ago..Have a nice afternoon everyone.xo
There are pictures on the hummer page of the nest in progress: Hummer nest
Did anyone notice our new title?Shepherdstown Eagle Cam Daily
yes, I did.
Yes, I noticed it too. Wonder why? It is still associated with NCTC right?
The write up on the home page is different too.
I did notice that earlier about the name change but the blog is more in Steve's domain than NCTC, right?
maybe because of the school stuff Sandy Burke is going to do....
I don't care what they call it, just so they don't take it away from us!
Maybe they thought people could find it easier under the Shepherdstown name?
Or more likely, because it's not a government blog...or on a government site.
Tuesday, October 21With the exceptions of the crunching of Lun Lun enjoying bamboo, the smacking of the cub nursing greedily, and an occasional grunt from either mom or cub, the panda building was quiet and uneventful last night. Lun Lun spent much of her time away from the cub either eating or sleeping. When sleeping, she often chose to lie in the den with him, but not in the nest box. The cub seems to accept these new sleeping arrangements. And Lun Lun does not seem as bothered during separations from the cub for weighing or to clean the den. All of this is in stark contrast to the early days after the birth, when the cub vocalized a great deal; when both cub and mom seemed to have trouble finding a comfortable position in which to rest; and, when separations were times of stress for Lun Lun and cub alike. These changes are testament to the progress the cub has made since birth in both development and growth. Since his birth, the cub has doubled his weight just over four times! Yesterday, he weighed 2,198 grams (4.84 pounds).Debbie Forde
little luney on his tummy:)
Our Little Luney has become quite a little Hoss!
Hi Everyone. Hope you're having a great day. Sunny and lovely here at the Park, but wind is picking up.Gonna be a Really Low Tide at 5:15 PM!I also noticed a new name for blog.Hope the still cam gets fixed before 6:30---gotta have our daily eagle fix!!
Great blue at BWO!
Heron at BWO
Glad you got home safe and sound Deb.
BTW, tried to show a colleague the Open House album on yahoo site & couldn't see it on any page.Noticed that there were NO left/right arrows at bottom of page, so couldn't scroll over to see if it was there?! Must be this retarded 'puter.
Back again the same day...argh! Either hospital told secretary wrong date or she wrote it wrong...I'm not scheduled til tomorrow, so now have to get up early again and mess up another whole day. Did see an old friend and had lunch while there, so that was good. And she's free for lunch again tomorrow, so that's good to look forward to!I noticed the name change, but thought I had just not been paying attention before!! LOL!
Here's some scoop on Microgreens: filament-thin, delicate plants, the smallest possible incarnation of salad greens, herbs, edible flowers, and leafy vegetables. As a careful reading of trendy menus reveals, micro is huge: Microfennel, microarugula, micro-spinach, microchrysanthemums, and others appear as garnishes, as toppings, or as explosive bursts of flavor.No idea which the Clarion was OVER-using!!
GBH gone; Bald Eagle arrived at BWO.Nethy's migration report is up for today...C(°ٿ°)DJim
Catch ya'll later, heading out to see Mom
Hello Again. I made it to all 3 appointments and back home. However, one eye dilated and might be awhile until I am in full swing. All is well but going for a cup of hubby's coffee and a peanut butter cookie or two! Funny about noticing the name change.. this morning I backtracked some of the old blogs but they all said S'town Eagle Cam Daily...so I thought I was probably noticing something for the first time that had been there forever........ lol
I'll be back in a few hours...Just need to take a short rest..BBL
I have been through all the pictures, next step will be to pick out which ones to post. I need a break, off to get my dogs.
Okay, everyone, is getting back to their nests, or getting ready to, and Paula's is going to visit Mom's Nest!Nature Nut: Did you sign in to Yahoo before you starting looking at the Album Pages? I had shut down computer, and couldn't figure out why I couldn't see any, then realized I was not being recognized as a member...just a suggestion.I saw Dana and Ed at the Grocery store! How about that !!xoxo
MEMA JO : Even when you not in "Full Swing" you are more hip than a lot of people! xoxo Have a Good Rest ! HEDGIE: SORRY YOU COULD NOT GET YOUR PROCEDURE DONE TODAY..., but glad you got to schmooze with an old pal.Groceries need to be put away.TTFN xo
Okay - a little Bob Marley and it's hard to tell where these groceries are going to end up !!
Back from doctor appointment. He was very pleased with GeeGee's progress. She has gained 3 pounds and vitals were all good. She told him she hasn't felt this good in a long time and that made him and me feel good!Not very busy today...where is everyone (at Wal-Mart?). THAT IS NOT GOOD! Time to fix some supper. BBL
little luney scratching his little face
great report, Wanda:)
Just got this report on Michael Vick:SURRY COUNTY: Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald Poindexter tells 13News that Newport News native Michael Vick won't serve additional prison time on state dogfighting charges, according to tenative plea agreement.NO SURPRISE THERE!
Good for GeeGee, must be some Wanda and Gene love adding to the weight gain progress !
well, hope the first dog he encounters when he gets out bites him;)
2 eagles in MAINE
LOOKS like they brought found into the nest Maine
bet the Maine bloggers are excited:)
might be eating leftover seagull
off they go, just a beautiful cam site up there in Maine
Oh Man, MITS, I was emailing grandson's teacher, and missed the Maine Eagles...maybe this is a trend, though, one this morning, two this evening, once that construction banging stops, and before it starts, seems would be the best time!Off to the Storage Bins, to deal with more clutter and look for some treasures!xox TTFN everyone Good Evening!
they will visit on and off the next couple of months before they get down to business, Margy
Right on, Helen, about Vick....all I can hope and pray for now, besides a dog attack, is that NO team lets him ever play again.Live cam not working here, and still is still stuck...boo!
yes, Lynn, MTBR about him:( guess we will not see a visit tonight.
Nuts, still cam still stuck :>((Margy, saw your older comment---Yes, you have to sign in to access anything.I saw albums, but one or two rows on left were missing.Gotta go watch din din cooking---Later
