Sea Eagle has been quite busy all by itself at Finney's this morning, just hunkered down in the nest... Good Tuesday Morning Everyone
Eagle has arrived at BWO
I hear an Eagle at Maine Cam
Hellooooooooooooo Anyone ?
Thanks magpie!! It is certainly a blustery day!!
Hi Sissy - Yes, feels like we are getting ready for November in a hurry !The beak on the bird at Finney's looks a little crusty ...I think this is one of the younger birds. Have a Good Day! xo
Squirrels getting first dibs at Pix PA...
I'd love to see what they are building in Maine !
Good morning everyone. This is crazy. Bluefield has a white ground!
DEB Regarding the Snowy Owls. In the early 50's, my brother remembers Snowy Owls perching on the roof tops and poles when we lived at the VA Center in Martinsburg. My naturalist friend at Roger Tory Peterson Institute in New York had this to day about Snowy Owls:"When I see them around here they are either sitting on a building, fence post, telephone pole or airport runway. Usually I see or hear of a few around here each winter. This is not their normal range but when lemmings are scarce on the tundra they will move south until they find suitable prey. Like many birds of the far north they can be seen far south of their range when food is scarce. The first or second year we lived here there were Snowy Owls everywhere. I have not seen a year like that since."He moved up there in 1968...so he's been waiting a long time to see them again. He also remembers the shrikes impaling some chow on a fence post...on an old farm he had near our Swinging Bridge here in WV.xo
That is crazy Sharon Are you guys taking some pictures?Get out the sleds !Freaky pic at BWO right now...
Hello all:) cold, blustery day here- All Together Now
Please have a look at BWO !Weird !
OMG What is going on at Maine ?Are they trimming the branches ?
That's a horrible noise !
GOOD TUESDAY A.M. EVERYONE
why do we have TWO threads for Tuesday?????
I hope Chrissy is watching PIX PA - she would be in Squirrel Heaven !
Looks really weird Magpie!
Ha! Maybe Steve had double-posting events like the rest of us do sometimes! Or else it is just Hallowe-en in the circuits ! This has the feeling of strange day !
looks like Christmas in Bluefield.....Sharon run over to the cam and throw snowballs at us:)
I cannot keep Maine Cam up...!!
or maybe he is going out-of-town:(, and does not want us to be without a new thread
Gobblers have chased off the squirrels now. Or maybe they are squirrels in their Hallowe-en costumes..
Looks like we have two TUESDAY THREADS...or am I in the Twilight Zone again?
Nope, Wanda...Mits mentioned it...not sure what that is all about, I saw the new thread and started posting, didn't even notice the second one til you all did.Maine sounds like a horror movie in the making, and whatever they are doing up there is kicking up some dust ! I'm turning it off RIGHT NOW !! Woof !
sounds like they are taking down trees or brush, up in Maine...hear the buzz saw, then the wood chipper
Margy don't know if that is dust or just the a.m. mist off the ocean
Bluefield looks like a Christmas Card. Is Sharon and Sissy on here yet...I'll have to look back over the morning comments.
Oh, yes, they are both up...Good Morning girls!
Margy, get your boots ready, we will have some of that any day now.
I wonder if all that noise and commotion in Maine will cause the eagles to settle in elsewhere?
Yes Wanda, we are here and watching it snow! *(#&$@!A#)(#*!!!!
Was thinking the same thing, Wanda.
lots of action going on at BWO....think another eagle was trying to land on the nest, and the eagles chased it away
Yep, here Wanda!! Supposed to end up with a couple of inches they say. Already have an inch on the daggone ground!!! I am with Sharon @#$@@%#^%^#!!!!
Have we had any word on our Eagle Cam? If technology can put a man on Mars, why can't we get a little camera to run properly? (I'm getting grouchy..EXCUSE ME)
Got my long johns on and I am headed out the door- sure hope parents dress their kids warmly, gonna be a rough morning for an outdoor field trip.Northwest winds 15 to 25 mph...increasing to 25 to 30 mph this afternoon. Gusts up to 50 mph. YUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Have a good day all, stay inside if you can!!

Breakfast time. Turkey burgers with yellow peppers and onions and mushroom sauce. We will eat anything for breakfast :)
(Did not get the turkey from Pa.)
Wanda, are you sure of that?
Looks like heavy fog at Maine cam. and sounds line something from outer space is near. lol
Are those large fish in the platform at BWO ???
looks like it Margy, think that is why there has been so much commotion there this a.m.
well there were 2 fish there????

No, Norma, we didn't find the snowy owl. I think we may try one more time, but we will wait for another report from the people who saw it the first time. There were other people out looking yesterday, maybe they got lucky and saw it.
LUN LUN is back & now we can't see "CLINICALLY CUTE"!!!---He was there a few mins ago!!---He can't keep those 'little black legs' from movin'!!!

It is a good morning don't you think. Love that the cam is up. Off to run errands and work tonight. Thinking about turnig on the Bluefield cam. Nah I don't want to see it.Oh OK since I odn't have to shovel it or drive in it maybe I iwll take a look.argh!!!
Eagle finally eating at BWO
Morning all. Snow in Bluefield better stay there!! Thanks for cam link, Helen....wonder why it's called Jefferson...can our Bluefiled girls explain??Satellite guy showed at 8:30..hard to believe! Back in business now w/ new TiVo!The PBS show Sunday night on the gryfalcons and white wolves on Ellesmere (sp?) Island was fantastic! Shed a few tears, but everythig turned out well, other than no wolf cubs. Really rough terrain up there in the tundra, and such a short "growing" season.Red, avatar is great!

I'm back from town. Glad you like my avitar.
Juvie at BWO - wonder if he's the one causing the ruckus?

Juvie gone...didn't find much nestovers!
I like all the halloween avitars. Everyone is getting into the spirit.
There's something there to snack on,...
Red, was just checking out your mooning pic...and saw we share the same favorite movie!!
Good to see our cam back up!
Lun and Luney were just rasslin!! First time I have seen him play!!
She took Luney out of the birthing den!!!!! WOW!!! I am so excited!
Paula, it's a great movie and lots of people have never seen it or heard of it.
Has anyone asked Steve if they got a final headcount for open house? Curious to know how big a crowd they had!!
Lun is really restless. Wonder what is up??
Had to read all comments but I can't see where you said that our Still cam is up/running.At least the date/time is correct.It is MT
Whoops! Hedgie just said it!Anyhoo..... Good afternoonI've been out with appointments Trying to catch up.. May take awhile at the rate I am going
Mema Jo, I thought Deb or somebody said this morning it was up! I hadn't checked since yesterday.
TV just showed the twin panda cubs that survived Wolong disaster....cute and growing so fast!! They have already been named. Only twins born this year (in captivity).
Adult eagle at BWO now
HEY BLUEFIELD SHARON!!!---President CLINTON is going to be in BECKLEY at 10:00 am Oct. 30!!!Don't have to have tickets---(FREE)---but might be wise to call for them!!!-----GO & get me an autograph!!! ho!
You're right Sissy! Deb found the cam operating today around 10am.Daughter is here visiting I'll be back later........
WOW!!!! I hate wind!!!what a day!!
Is the corn laying on its side, Megan?????Hey, Norma, did you get my email from yesterday??
Corn still standing, but everything that can blow away is trying to. What a miserable day, and tomorrow seems to be more of the same. Teachers wisely decided not to eat lunch on the playground, but head back to school instead.
LOL, Megan and Hedgie - look at your avatars! Just about identical.Have a great afternoon all. Heading out to see Mom.
Normabyrd, if I was not working, I would go get us both his autograph! :)
Time for my beauty rest. See y'all later. :)
Can hear the circular saw at Maine site. How awful for the birds! It will be a miracle if they stick around!
***GOOD DAY*****TO ALL MY FRIENDS****IN EAGLE LAND**C(°ٿ°)DJim
I may be late, but at least I got to say 'good morning' to Suzanne, and I even did a little email to many of you.How's it going so far?? Did I miss a lot of action??Here's a bluie link to Nethy's report. Nethy in Africa C(°ٿ°)DJim
Nethy does seem to be happily settled, Jim. Still a heartbreak, tho', about Deshar.
Well, I see our 30 second cam didn't last long today. It is stuck again.
Never mind, it just updated to 4:09!!
Weird, the pop up was stuck at 2:37 for about a minute longer than the non-pop up one.
Tuesday, October 28This week I had the opportunity to observe the cub during daylight hours. Up until then, I have to admit, I was a bit of a doubting Thomas about reports that the cub was scooting around. The cub I watched overnight most certainly was not scooting anywhere. I had witnessed him move his legs aimlessly and squirm, but to call it scooting was a stretch of the imagination. And then, Saturday afternoon, I finally did see what could be somewhat convincingly termed scooting. Lun Lun had just left the cub to snack on some tasty bamboo in the adjacent den. The cub was in the nest box facing the opposite direction from where Lun Lun was eating. He picked up his head, cocked it in the direction of Lun Lun and began his trek. With arms and legs moving in semi-coordinated fashion, the cub was on the go; his head leading the way as he turned his body counterclockwise toward his mother. But, alas, all this travel was exhausting and at the 5 o’clock position he had to lay his head down and regain his stamina. After several moments, he resumed his journey, reaching his final destination shortly thereafter. He had managed to end up where he began, having scooted in a 360 degree circle! And yesterday, the little voyager weighed in at 2556 grams.Debbie FordeCuratorial Assistant
