GOOD MORNING STEVE...THANK YOU!

Costume Lady said...

It doesn't look as if our eagles are coming back this morning, so, I am going for coffee. BBL

Costume Lady said...

SAFE TRAVELS FOR JO and ED.

magpie said...

Thanks for the New Thread info, Wanda...

I'm headed for the pillows very soon.

Yes, Second that Wanda...Safe Travels for all, coming and going, and
Special Wishes for all the Lennox Family on their Journey to Romney.


Good Night, All....or Good Morning, depending on your schedule today...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning, Wanda. Thanks for coming over and getting me. Just wanted to jump on this morning and say thanks to all for the prayers. Getting ready to go down to Mrs. Riffe's this morning. She is just pitiful. This is the 4th child she has had to bury. She said last night she didn't think she would make it through this one. Doug was there almost everyday, would just come and have coffee and visit. Such a loss for us all but especially for her.

magpie said...

Sissy Special prayers for strength and comfort. You are a blessing for the entire Riffe family, we know that. Take Care.
We are with you....

xo

magpie said...

There are two Eagles in OUR NEST to give you comfort...

magpie said...

Just one now, for now...

magpie said...

I think the Eagle heard Sissy and came back to deliver some strength.

♥ ♥ ♥

magpie said...

Breakfast at Blackwater.
And pillows for me.

Sayonara....

xo

magpie said...

I can't leave when there is an Eagle in our Nest !

magpie said...

Holey Moley I hope I am not the only one seeing our Eagle...

magpie said...

Wanda would you hurry up and get your coffee !!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I see one there now Margy! Beautiful sight this morning. Will check in later today and see what is up.

magpie said...

Okay real quick, Sis, there are two again...

Ceil said...

I see them Margy. Just got on and wow. So beautiful. Thanks for yelling so loud. Heard you in Baltimore.

magpie said...

I know you have to go..I'm saving some pics for Yahoo...

xo

magpie said...

Hallelujah Hawaii, Ceil, as the Grandson says when he gets excited about something !

I'm glad you heard me! ♥ ♥

Costume Lady said...

Yes, I see them too, Margy. I think you are right...they came back especially for Sissy!
GOOD MORNING, SISSY. ((HUGS))

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING, CEIL.

Ceil said...

Good morning Wanda. Belle left.

Costume Lady said...

I wonder why we never see our eagle pair bring a fish to the nest, but BWO eagles do it often? Strange.

magpie said...

I just put four up on Yahoo...
they were gone for awhile, I was checking out...then had one last loving look, and Voila! Eagle Magic !

Ceil said...

The BWO eagles don't bring the fish to their nest they mess up the osprey nest but it feeds a bunch of birds. I hate to go but have doctor appt.
Prayers for all.

Costume Lady said...

It is hard to comment on here with my letters showing themselves about 10 seconds after I print them. I don't kknow what the problem is, but, it is driving me crazy. I am going to shut down everything and come back and see if it is any better...I have done this about 4 times. BBL

Costume Lady said...

You are right, Ceil...I never thought of it that way!

MITS said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE....

MITS said...

Prayers going out for those in need.

magpie said...

Okay, this is it. Just had a quick look at Snowman Cam 24-hour archive, last night between 7 and 9 pm, there were as many as 7 or 8 deer at the cam At One Time!

I see our feathered friends are gone now so I better make a getaway..
Eyelids are drooping....
It's that time....xox z z z

Red said...

Wanda, You need to completely shut down every couple of days. That means power off too. The only way to completely clear memory is power off. If that dosen't work then you may have spyware or virus.

Sure was good to see our eagles this morning. ☺☺☺

MITS said...

Red, it sure sounded like a virus to me...Wanda run your virus scan:)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning, my friends of fine feathers and fur!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I did get a glimpse of Liberty and Belle this morning.

MITS said...

Morning, Sharon

Costume Lady said...

Everything seems to be working as it should now. Hooray!!!!

Costume Lady said...

Sharon, will Thelma let us know how you are doing after your surgery Wednesday?

grannyblt said...

Morning all. I guess I am late to the party today--I don't see anything anywhere. BBL

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning Granny...yes you did miss a few visits from our eagles. They will be back, keep your eyes open and listen for someone to HOLLER at you ;)

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning Dave. Understand. We have all dealt with Dial Up and one time or another.

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Costume lady; Yes it's a real
bummmmmmer.

Dave

grannyblt said...

I am on dial up. That is one reason I am not here more often.

Just checked the PA cam again. Did they adjust the view so we can see some skyline?? or did I just not notice before this?

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

grannybit; that is also why i am
not on here to much,but i hope that
will change soon.

Dave

glo said...

Good morning everyone. I see your day has started out in a wonderful way. I am going on a little shooting spree myself and hoping for a fun glimpse. MTBR.

MITS said...

MITS said...

I know I would not be on here....looking into getting FIOS

Sissy, I am saddened and so sorry for your family's loss. I pray that during this time, you and your husband may feel the many prayers that are being said on your behalf. I wish I could be there and go with Sister Sharon on Wednesday. Sharon, I will be there in prayer for you. Your big Sis. donna

Mauley said...

Morning everyone, the blogger cop has had it out for me the past couple or three months. Refused to accept anything from me. I became so discourage. I had the email from the blog and saw that the Bluefield Girls needed prayer. Before I sat down here, I just prayed a little prayer that God would help me get on the blog, so I could encourage my sisters from Bluefield, and I got on the first time. I was surprised, but shouldn't have been, when I got on. I pray all of you dear ones have a glorious day and rejoice in it. Lots of huggs Mauley Donna.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I know you will Donna! Without a doubt!

MITS said...

Good to see you on hear, Donna

MITS said...

MITS said...

movin said...

wHen I first signed on this A.M., there was a largish Great Blue Heron in the BWO nest, but that has been replaced by a couple of the EEuuwwwiee Clan.

Also there's news that the oldest eyass at the Alcoa site has fledged, so the others might be very soon now.

MITS said...

MONDAY UPDATE FROM ATLANTA.....

Monday, November 10
Last evening the cub's slumber was broken by a period of activity. Stretching and yawning, and just generally squirming about in the little space he was occupying in the nest box. Suddenly, his left foot became the area of concentration for his kinetic energy. At first small, slow and barely discernible; then, the motion grew and became a rhythmic pattern. He was scratching! One minor technical problem; while most of the required sequences of the action were in place, his foot did not come into contact with any other part of his body. In spite of the ineffectiveness, he continued scratching the floor for a time before sleep overtook him again. While his weight (3357 grams) continues to increase rapidly, motor skills are not as easily gained; they require physiological maturation, a bit of trial and error, and much practice before being mastered.

Deb said...

I am envying you your weather, Wanda, on Saturday no moisture in the forecast, now tonight, Thursday and Friday. Of course, that can change again, I hope!

Eewwiiees at BWO cleaning up!

Morning, all ☼

paula eagleholic said...

Look at that really white stick in our nest.

Hedgie said...

Good morning all. So many "strangers" back with us this am!
Saw one of our beauties in our nest earlier, but all on had already mentioned it so I didn't get on to shout ALERT!!!
Sorry about your 'eers, Norma. But congrats to Baltimore fans!!
Wind is blowing like crazy again, so you know what I am NOT doing...hoping it dies down.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Paula, maybe that stick has been whitewashed with a poop shoot! ☺ ☼

paula eagleholic said...

How much snow is at your house, Deb?

Deb said...

None, Paula. We had 2" and it is gone! The storm was all out west, except for the winds. I think it snowed itself out in the Black Hills.

normabyrd said...

BLUEFIELD SHARON!!---I'll just keep those prayers coming for you!!---STAY COOL----

normabyrd said...

DANA---The obit was in the CUMBERLAND TIME-NEWS----(www.times-news.com)

Eagle in Maine

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE!!---I knew that some one would remember the score for the MOUNTAINEERS!!!!---ho!!---went down in overtime---FEEL SO SORRY FOR COACH---that one hurt!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Sharon - I don't think they bring those sticks back to the nest! They leave them under the tree!

Deb said...

Do you have sound on the Maine cam? I don't have any today.

MITS said...

yes, Deb, I have sound

normabyrd said...

DEB!!---I don't have sound---but just supposed it was my computer!!
ho!

MITS said...

I hear eagles, crows, blue jays and a woodpecker

Deb said...

I'll restart it after the visit and see if that helps.

paula eagleholic said...

I don't have any on RP...

Deb said...

Darn, I am missing some great sounds!

MITS said...

also have the sound of something near the mic, fooling with it

Deb said...

I'm in QuickTime Player.

paula eagleholic said...

I have it on WMP, tho

MITS said...

I just go to their site with the 15 second cam and click on live feed

MITS said...

I can't zoom in like Margy says she can, I can only enlarge

Deb said...

i just click, too. I can't zoom in either. Strange how we all get a little something different.

paula eagleholic said...

Hmmm, I do have sound on my RP at Maine

paula eagleholic said...

Sometimes hard for me to tell, sound on this computer is lousy

paula eagleholic said...

Big feather fluff and tail wiggle...getting ready to go?

MITS said...

someone is blowing leaves up in Maine

wvgal_dana said...

Beautiful eagle fix at Maine. Colors are awesome.

MITS said...

big poop shoot

paula eagleholic said...

Poop Shoot at Maine...looking to the right...

paula eagleholic said...

Little more preening...and fluffing

Deb said...

I went ahead and restarted it, now I have sound!

normabyrd said...

WOW! WOW!---Even if I don't have SOUND!!---The ME EAGLE is just too BEAUTIFUL!!---She's really putting on a show for everyone!!!

normabyrd said...

REALLY!!---REALLY!!! BIG TURKEYS APPROACHING on the PA SITE!!

normabyrd said...

Party is over in ME!!

Hedgie said...

I've got sound today on Maine cam, but didn't yesterday. I have to turn volume all the way up tho' to hear it, which isn't the case w/ other things, so.....must be the site!

MITS said...

TOMORROW PAULA & SUZANNE---HOLIDAY!

paula eagleholic said...

No Holiday for me Norma...sure would like one though...I think Suz and Bob are the lucky ones...

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Lun Lun is not having an easy time getting settled with Luney! She has rolled all over the place with him and now carried him into the other den.

MITS said...

think she found a good spot:)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

He does not like being held on his back.

MITS said...

he is a mouthful

MITS said...

oh oh he's stuck...nope got himself turned over

MITS said...

lol...here comes the bamboo

Costume Lady said...

It looks like Lun Lun is "fencing" in Luney. He scooted clean out of the cam's range earlier today. I can remember Bai would stop ZZ just as he got himself to the door and was ready to step out...pick him up and bring him back...over and over :)

Hedgie said...

Did anyone notice that our has color today???

Hedgie said...

That is CAM has color!!!!

Hedgie said...

Interesting report on our little Luney....the lack of coordination I guess is typical of all mammals.
Thanks for PBS heads up, Helen. Got it scheduled to record!!

carolinabeachmom said...

EAGLE in Maine nest!

MITS said...

thanks, Candy:)

Costume Lady said...

LACK OF COORDINATION...doesn't that pertain to most males? ;)

Costume Lady said...

OF COURSE, I REMEMBER ZZ IS A FEMALE. JUST HAD A SENIOR MOMENT :):)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Wanda, I still think it pertains to most males! ☺

carolinabeachmom said...

Hi HELEN AND WANDA! Just got home from school and turned on the puter to see an eagle on the nest in Maine. I still can't bring up the live and no sound.15 second update is ok with me right now. OH Poof and the eagle is gone.

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey SHARON, I read where you are having an operation. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family and all will be ok, I'm sure.

Red said...

Gosh Wanda, You know me well. lol

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I sure can hear those eagles calling at Maine. What music to my ears!

Red, I was hoping you were closeby about the male incoordination thing! ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Both in the nest at Maine!

carolinabeachmom said...

RWO EAGLES BACK IN MAINE NEST.

carolinabeachmom said...

congragulations to you RED and Your CRIMSON tIDE TEAM for their win the other day. The UNC Tarheels won too. Poor NOMRA wasn't so lucky. :(

Red said...

Thanks Candy, They barely squeeked by LSU. I though they were going to blow it. ☺☺☺

MITS said...

so nice to see living, breathing, moving eagles live!!!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Looks like he is doing the stick arranging. Reckon SHE will go behind him and fix them right? ☺

MITS said...

of course, she has to, he is not doing it the correct way:)

magpie said...

Well, that was nice! At Maine!
I love that Take Off Branch !

Hello Eagle ♀'s and ♂'s !

By the way, I do not have Zoom at Maine, the choices are greyed out, I guess I said it wrong, I can just get full screen or regular screen, I have live feed, and must be just like Hedgie - the sound is quite low so I have to turn my speakers up high to hear the sounds most of the time.

xo

magpie said...

Did you all check out Deb's New Pictures from her field trip Sunday ? Awesome !

carolinabeachmom said...

I have the live cam at both the Atlanta Zoo and Maine. I downloaded a new version of real player, I guess, and that did the ticket.

Has anyone checked in on the Snowman cam today. Looks like they had some more snow since yesterday. Better them than me.

Ceil said...

Thanks Margy for calling attention to Deb's pictures.

Deb they are great. The juvie is a cutie.

magpie said...

Hi Ceil - And aren't those Snow Geese in Formation Awesome? I would Fall Over of I saw something like that !

magpie said...

It's time to start watching the night skies for Tundra Swans migrating towards the Chesapeake from the North....

MITS said...

awesome pictures, Deb

magpie said...

Hi Candy! Enjoy hour holiday Tuesday, good Special Holiday to be off, sorry you have to work Saturday too....My schedule includes working both Tuesday AND Saturday... but you would know about that since your husband was in the same line of work...

♥ ♥

magpie said...

Whenever I know Deb has been on a field trip, I wait with baited breath to see her pictures !
Glo was going on a field trip today too....so we can look forward to those as well!

☺ ☺ ☺

magpie said...

I think the weight of the snow at SnowMan Cam is pushing the thermometer over !


Gotta start getting ready for work...where is the character for Upside Down Smiley Face ??

xo

carolinabeachmom said...

EAGLE at BWO

magpie said...

Well, there is an Eagle at BWO so I am all ☺ again


TTFN Hope all is well with all our Eagle Buds....

carolinabeachmom said...

Have a good rest Margy.

Costume Lady said...

RED, No offense...I love men; I married one ;)

Ceil said...

My husband and I had some appointments today and as we were going over a bridge a flock of geese flew so close to the car I almost opened the back door to let them in. Not snow geese but also beautiful. Have a good evening all.

MITS said...

Yep, and the DNR would have arrested you, Ceil...lol

NatureNut said...

Evening Everyone in Eagleland ☺☺☺☺
Had ME cam up & now it went black?!
Blessings for all those in need♥♥♥

Posted some new bird pics on blog---now have to get back to work here at home!

carolinabeachmom said...

I do think that is is dark in Maine now, no? :):):) They stick out there a little more than the rest of us, so it gets dark earlier there.

Ceil said...

Helen I was afraid they were going to hit the car. Figured open door let in. They were just so low. They were landing on the other side of the bridge.

MITS said...

correct, Candy...their sun sets faster there

MITS said...

what bridge????

Ceil said...

Candy at one time it was a lighted cam. The first year I watched them all night but I have noticed this year when it gets dark you cannot see the nest.

Ceil said...

Hanover Street Bridge.

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey CEIL, I can just see you and your hubby riding down the road with a car load of EAGLE IN OUR NEST

MITS said...

they turned it off last winter when there was no action....will probably turn it on again, when things start up

MITS said...

EAGLE

MITS said...

MIGHT HAVE BROUGHT SOMEHTHING IN TO EAT

Ceil said...

Loretta so cute. Beautiful pics.
Thanks.

carolinabeachmom said...

As I was saying, I could just see you and your hubby riding down the road with a car load of geese honking and sqwaking; feathers flying. :):):)

T-Bird said...

Hello everyone

T-Bird said...

It was sure nice to see a quick visit as I turned the cam on this evening. :)

Costume Lady said...

Thanks, Helen...my day is complete now. I have seen them three times today!

Ceil said...

Candy don't think they would have fit. Flock of them. Beautiful.
Hi Thelma.

NatureNut said...

Ceil, I think hunting season has begun, so you probably could have offered them a ride & had goose for Thanksgiving!!!! LOL ☺☺☺

carolinabeachmom said...

Hi t-bird, the visit was nice even tho short. It did look like they had been working on it some. Don't know if anyone saw them or not. Eagle is still sitting at BWO

MITS said...

Yep visit to fast...had to tend to something in kitchen and when I got back it was poof time

carolinabeachmom said...

CEIL They were probably working for Aflac and headed for a southern convention. :)

Costume Lady said...

Hello to you, Thelma. Are you going to let us know how Sharon is doing, Wednesday? Bless you for being with her.

MITS said...

lol...........AFLAC!!!!!!

Ceil said...

Great idea Loretta. Like roasted goose. Going that way tomorrow will be on the look out for them. We live near Fort McHenry and there are hundreds down there. They have been trying to figure out how to get rid of them.

carolinabeachmom said...

Deer coming into the snowman cam

MITS said...

They can be really stinky and messy

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good evening my Eagle buds!! Been a heck of a day. We got the arrangements finalized and the wake is not until Thursday and funeral Friday. Gonna be a long week for sure. I am gonna take Sher to Charlottesville tomorrow night and come back Thursday morning. Just feel stressed to the max. Need to breath and pray and things will work out.

Ceil said...

Good one Candy. Love those commercials.

Costume Lady said...

LMBO Candy!

MITS said...
