BBL. Gotta run to drug store and pick up prescription and buy batteries. TV Remote died last night. Can't have that. :) lol
NORMA, we don't have time to dress up and Party on Halloween...we stay open til 8 o'clock and are usually too exhausted to even THINK about Partying. But, I will have to say, that the last week of the season, we feel as if we are having a party every day! It is FUN as well as exhausting.
No Eagle costumes, Sissy, but I did sell two EASTER BUNNIES yesterday.

good morning, Miss Sharon:)
A balmy 29 degrees in Bluefield this morning.
Good Morning all, I just got up to get Brandon off to school. I didnt have the heart to tell him the cam was stuck. He was so excited to see them
The BW eagles were into some hanky panky this morning I believe! Practice runs I guess! :)
grandson wants breakfast. Its still dark here. BBL
Eagle at Finnys!
Good morning, everyone. It is going to be 68 today and that means I have to clean the garage once it warms up. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 70 and we are hoping to go kayaking, so I want to get my work done today.
sounds like fun Deb:)
As long as it is nice out, it isn't that bad. I tend to spread out over the summer, since the boat takes up the driveway. It just needs a good sweeping and putting everything back where it belongs. I use a shop vac, much easier than a broom.Sea eagle left.
FROM LISANest Update10/29/08:If you feed birds during the winter, you should think about joining Project FeederWatch, which uses citizens to help keep track of winter bird populations.Joining is easy and fun. And your observations will improve bird science.
FROM ATLANTAWednesday, October 29Well just as she did with Mei Lan, Lun Lun has started taking the cub on “outings.” Over the last few days, we have seen Lun Lun carry the cub into the adjacent dens for brief periods of time. She does not stay long in the new areas, because the cub usually protests vocally to the relocation process even though no harm is caused to him. Soon she might start to leave the cub in the other dens. Until then the cub will have to learn to tolerate the mode of travel around the dens. Wild giant panda mothers move their cubs to different dens as well, most likely to reduce parasite exposure and avoid predator detection. The cub’s weight yesterday was 2,608 grams.Kate RocaCarnivore Keeper II
Morning, allmight be an osprey at the PH nest...
***GOOD mORNING******EVERYONE IN THE******BIRDER WORLD***[:~D]Jim
I was too slow and missed it, but saw a couple of pictures of it on here, towards the bottom of the pageOsprey at PH
Good Chilly Morning Everyone
PROJECT FEEDERWATCHTHIS IS THE PROGRAM LISA IS TALKING ABOUT ON THE OSPREY PAGE TODAY:)
Thanks Deb, beautiful osprey there:)
Something just flew into the nest, crows or a similar bird, at PH.
Thanks for all the updates, Mits.Mason also has update - New drug program - let's pray for the bestresults possible. Mason's Update
They are ravens!
Yes, those are some mighty big ravens out on the islands!
Sunset at Finney's nest already...
Eagle at BWO
Good Morning Folks!Red..We got a big laugh about your pumpkins. Did you have your GRITS this morning? We had ours yesterday morning the way you like yours but we have added something to ours that make them even better!!I was writing to tell you all about the grits when we lost power. The Power Company estimated about 11 hours to get it back on. I told them I was on an Oxygen Generator and the lady said "Life Support". We got it back on in less than three hours. WOW!You all have a nice cool windy day!!
I am glad you got your power back, Pauleo. Early storms are hard on trees and power lines, both.
Hello to all in Eagleland!! Cool and breezy here today, but not as bad as yesterday!Entering the Park this AM, I finally saw an adult eagle flying over the nest area and toward the River!!! It was pretty high, so don't know if it had been at nest or not.As Suzanne always says, "keep your eyes to the skies!!
BTW, Love Red's pumpkin people :>)) I have that picture, but was too chicken to use it!!Will get rid of the spyder when I get home. Still looking for my haunted house pic!Wish I could get Atlanta cam. Would love to see CC carried to other dens!
looks like eagles at BWO are yelling at the juvies to stay away
Loretta, why can't you get atlanta cam? Do you get an error message or what?Paulleo what is the extra ingredent in your grits.
one eagle just flew off and came right back, still yelling at BWO
report from Hummer nestThe egg was laid: October 29, 2008] HUMMER NEST
I bet they are yelling at the juvies, too. They are looking all around, so they must still be in the area.
YIKES, THEY LOOK MEAN:)
Thanks, I hadn't checked the hummer this morning.
HUMMER IS SITTING ON HER EGG:)
Red... Just the other day we had some chicken broth left over from a garlic bread soup from the night before and my wife (Dot) used it in place of some of the water for the grits. They were the BEST Grits we ever had!! I still used lots of butter and salt and pepper with mine though.
mmmm, sounds like GOOD EATS, Paulleo.
wonder if our cam will come back on today:(
That sure sounds like good grits. Might have to try that sometime. Next time I make Kilbasa and cabbage soup(which takes lots of chicken broth).
Those eagles at BWO work really hard to protect a nest that ain't their's either! :)
Red, At work we have RETARDED Wind. 2000 Prof. 'puters that have no/old Media players. Other office I work at got upgraded to XP & now we can at least see Atlanta!
Wow. Windows 2000. Someone needs to upgrade badly. Guess that explains it.
I forgot what Windows 2000 was like!OK I am out of here for someappointments and I will touch basewith you upon my return.Good to hear from you Paul & Dot!BBL
This Vis. Ctr. 'puter is not even supposed to go online, but we accidently found a way!!! So, SSHHH, I'm not really here!!LOL Just a ghost.........
The sun is rising in Talkeetna, Alaska:Talkeetna/McKinley
I said Kelbasa and cabbage soup. It's really Polish sausage but can use Kilbasa too. Here's the recipe. Sure is good on these crisp fall days.1 Small Onion, Chopped ( 1/3 cup)1 Stalk of Celery, Sliced (1/2 cup)¼ Cup of Butter½ Cup of Flour8 Cups of Chicken Broth4 cups of Shredded Cabbage8 – 12 oz Fully cooked Polish Sausage, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced.2 tsp Snipped Fresh Parsley½ tsp White PepperIn a 4 quart Dutch oven cook the onion and celery in butter till the vegies are tender, but not browned.Stir in flour till the mixture is smooth. Add chicken broth and cabbage. Cook and stir till soup mixture is thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 3 minutes.Stir in sausage, parsley, pepper and cook uncovered 10 minutes. Cook longer if you don’t like crunchy cabbage.
And I would suggest a couple pounds of Microgreens, Red! :)
lol...Sharon....pile those suckers on:)
Deb, that is an awesome site in Alaska
All this food talk is making me want a nap. BBL
just got an e-mail from the HUMMER GUY......Thanks.Now that she'll be sitting on an egg tonight, I won't be turning on the flasher
Break time, progress is being made. I have all the camera stuff from the Osprey project tucked into the corner and the garage is swept. Now just have to put stuff back where it belongs and I am done. Needed a break from the dust.
Hi gang! SO many fine folk on today!! Sorry, Paulleo, don't like grits! Red, the kielbasa soup sounds good! Talking about food makes you sleepy?? Makes me hungry!!Chrissy, it's a combo of the tea, cold and age!!! I drink iced tea all day and I know what you mean!!Beautiful McKinley!!Hope the chemical spill/fire is under control!Margie, Paulleo...any other "locals"--vehicle ran into the DMV in Jefferson County...hope they didn't issue that person a license!!!
Had company this morning, and then doing some odds and ends chores...wind is still blowing, gray and gloomy and it's only at 48 now. Yuck!
Now some kind of agricultural animal truck overturn w/ dead animals on road on 340 south of CharlesTown!! Wonder if the wind is blowing trucks off the road!?
YIKES...LYNN.....bad day for traffic around there
Vicky, if you check back in....how are you doing and how's everything in IL--besides cold!
Missed the noon news, Mits...lots of traffic incidents there, too?
clouded leopards, Asian small-clawed otters, and even the fishing cat is passing the cam at NZ
Of course, that's normal for beltway and environs, huh?? Doesn't take bad weather to cause it!! One time I was on 495 when a car in front of me had hood pop open...poor woman couldn't see where she was going, and it scared me almost as bad! Thankfully, it was about 11am so traffic wasn't too bad, and I was able to get over to the outer lane and around her...she made it to the shoulder ok. Pure luck.
Helen, did you know that the biggest threat to sea otters is cat feces? The toxoplasmosis germ gets into waterways not only from above-ground runoff but also from treatment systems where people have used flushable cat litter.
I'm not sure I know what is normal here.....traffic is traffic, it is what it is. I usually just heard out at least 15 mins ahead just to be sure I arrive on time to where I want to go....
CAM IS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!
TIME IS RUNNING ABOUT 17 MINS AHEAD
Soooo, We'll see something on THE NEST before it is really there....It's got to be a Hallowe-en thing.Cool sites and news from everyone...Got to try some of my new coffee..Be back in a few caffeine moments...Good to "see" everyone...
Blackbird of some sort at Two Harbors.
That is one big egg at Hummingbird site! How does such a little bird lay such a BIG EGG !
You know, I understand the usefulness of ewwies but they are still butt ugly!
Went from an ewwie in one shot to an eagle in the next!
Hope Megan is getting thawed out from another blustery day in the Great Outdoors !
Eagle at BWO has a partner.Chubby Buns at Pix PA. And some squirrels.Coffee Pot gets an A+.
Hope everyone has a nice afternoon and evening...Enjoy all the wildlife. OUR NEST sure looks ripe for a visit.BTW - I love grits, and like that new idea, PAULLEO with the broth....gotta load 'em up with salt and pepper and an egg and plenty of butter...good winter meal !Trip to Morgan County in my near future, I am off tonight.TTFN - - xoxo
Glad cam is back up, but wonder who set the clock? And nest is MT...boohoo!Drive safely, Margy!
Thanks Hedgie..Like your avatar..Out the Door nowTaking the back way up and down Parks Gap Mtn, then through Tomahawk, gotta avoid Hedgesville Town traffic this time of day.xo
That's for sure!! Unbelievable how slow it moves....so much worse since all the traffic lights were put in. Usually thins out pretty good after Butts Mill and Camp Frame! I absolutely hated it when I worked until 5 the last few years I worked.
Eagle calling at Maine.
woops!! Didn't see your post about the baby Mits. I took mine back. :)
I'm glad to hear the hummer is sitting on an egg, I will miss the flashing skeleton though.Hoping for a nest visit since our cam is working now.
Buta is playing in her den!! She is so beautiful!
good evening everyone
hope everyone has made a good day
I think Buta really hurt herself just now.
Gosh, that was pitiful. Me, Sharon, and Thelma have come to the conclusion that she hurt her ribs. She fell right onto that stump. Bless her little heart. That was very traumatic for me (not to mention Buta)!!
buta is eating now-hopefully false alarm-poor soul
I can't stand to see'em hurt. I hated hearing about the elephant yesterday-sad.
Making stuffed peppers tonight. Got canceled last night as I had to run to town to unlock wifes car door so she can get keys. lol At least she bought me dinner.
and she thinks I have a memory problem. lol
I just got a note from Janie and Gabby finally got her wing wraps off. I looked back and it has been since Sept 18th that she got hurt. (We are told that she is a he, but old habits die hard.) I will put up a picture of Gabby with her wing wraps on. He will be placed in a heated cage soon, as the nights are getting colder in Idaho.
It is getting closer for Beauty's second attachment of her beak. They are doing CAT scans and assessments on her right now. The SD eaglets are doing well and are being fitted for anklets to keep them flying and hunting this winter so they can be released right away next spring. They are doing the same for two golden eaglets they have.
Darn Safari won't load pictures, I have to do it in Firefox, so logging on here.
Thanks for the info Deb on Gabby and Beauty.
we have a visitor
Juvie at BWO!
later guys-everyone be well
Whoa- storm passing by, just had a 27 mph wind gust here, it is raining with snow flurries and ice crystals mixed in- 34 degrees.. nasty out there.
WOW!..Our nest looks like it is surrounded by Glo-Sticks..cool
LOL Wanda, great description!
The grits sound good, Paul.Red, have you ever put keilbasa in sauerkraut? really good!
Yes Paula, One of my favorites.
yummy, mine too:)
Helllllooooo Everybody!!!!!!We are home!!! What a fantastic trip! Four nights W.V., four nights DC, and four nights in the Williamsburg area. Home safe and sound...give praise!!I have a whole new feeling when I see who is on the blog. It will take me a while to catch up on everything.All is well here at home. Have walked around the yard and everything is great. I was worried about my Ti plant as it has dropped into the 30's here, but it looks great. Annie the mad cat is MAD at us, but she will get over it. :)Just wanted to let you wonderful people know we are home.
We use a whole Pork Butt roast, put it in the slow cooker along with the saurkraut and a can of chicken broth and onions and cook it for 24 hours...then throw in hot dogs...or Keilbasa the last hour or two of cooking. Yum!
WELCOME HOME, LOLLY
DINNER TIME HERE..BBIALW...THAT SOUNDS GOOD WANDA.
Lolly, Welcome Home. So anxious to see your photos and hear of your travels. Sounds like you made the most of your trip.
We sure did make the most of it. We spent two days in DC and one visiting some civil war sites.Loved Williamsburg as well and we went to Jamestown. We've been to all of these places, but everytime you see something new. We walked till my feet hurt, but that was good as we were eating very well. What is it about trips that makes you eat so?!
Don't know Lolly, we do the same thing...just seems like a good supper is the way to end a good day!
Welcome Home, Lolly and Jack. It was so wonderful meeting both of you!Vacation = eat what you want! (Plus, ya didn't have to cook it...makes it better!)
We were so happy to hear that you went back to the nest and say Lib and Belle. We wanted that to happen as much as you did!
Yay! Lolly and Jack are home! Glad you had such a nice trip and it was great to meet you.
Hey, check this out! snowman cam
Just closed the shop...supper time for us. BBL
Welcome home, Lolly and Jack. When is your retreat, Lolly??
I leave for retreat on Friday morning. We have unloaded the trailer, will do some cleaning tomorrow. On my third load of wash. More to go!!!!Paula and Deb.....our visit to the nest on Sunday....was most definitly the highlight. What a memory!!!!! I am anxious to get your pictures.
Time for our dinner. BBL
There is a bear on the snowman cam right now!
Hummer off the nest, you can see the egg. It does look huge!
Welcome home, Lolly and Jack! So glad to have met you, and that your trip was a rewarding experience in so many ways!!Where is your retreat??
See the bear, Paula! Did you notice the temp?? Brrr....and bear!!
Megan, we had some of that weather, too. It's too early for this nonsense.Hey, Wanda, hoping you had another great day in the shop!
How cool is that bear??? I don't know when I would have noticed it if you hadn't mentioned it.
He's being pretty quiet. Looks like the small black bear we had in Frederick a couple of months ago.
This one is for Lolly, Jack and Anne- Back Home Again
I have returned --I feel like I have been in a far away land.Welcome home Lolly & JackVery happy you made many memoriesI love all the Halloween avatars!I still need to get the candy! At least waiting this late it will not get eaten ahead of the trick or treaters coming.
I remember that cam, Suzanne had sent it around several weeks ago, and was wondering how it would look when weather turned cold
Snowman cam is neat, that bear is just hanging around...did someone say Halloween candy?...ok, I'll have some....
Megan, what a perfect song for Lolly and Jack. :)
Yeah, I love that song...I have candy corn.....
Went to Wal-Mart today, after visit with GeeGee. Candy is on sale, I think half price. Didn't buy any...too tempting! LOVE THOSE LITTLE CANDY BARS!
Mama hummer still off the egg
