Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning again...
Norma, hope it doesn't snow so much that Gene can't stop at Seneca Rocks and wave at Carol!
Hope it doesn't keep him from getting to Deer Camp...He would be a very unhappy camper! ;(

Costume Lady said...

How cold is it, Dave? It is 44° here in Martinsburg/Shepherdstown.

MITS said...

wow, Wanda, is it that time of the year already...time sure does fly..

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh yeah, Paula, I forget not all of us can work in our PJs!! It is 34 here this morning.

MITS said...

we have a balmy 49°

normabyrd said...

WHOA KIDS!!---What if BLUEFIELD SHARON has another 'you know' while in WALMART!!!----kiddin'!!---TOM can probably walk the other way & ignore her!!--Awww! SHARON--LOVE YOU---WE ARE SO HAPPY YOU ARE HOME!!!---It's wonderful you are feeling much better & you can go out!!!

MITS said...

Seneca Rocks web-cam still shows it on August 10th:(

Costume Lady said...

Yep, Helen...it is that time again. Just step into my house and you will signs everywhere. Guns, boots, clothes, snacks and ORANGE, ORANGE AND ORANGE. It is like the Hunters Christmas...they are all so excited :)

Costume Lady said...

That must be a forgotten cam...too bad.

MITS said...

I liked watching the differnt seasons on that cam...may have to try to contact someone to find out why....sure it is a money thing.

Costume Lady said...

Gene will be leaving Wednesday to get the camp ready for the others. Then I will be a Hunter's Widow ;););)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Tom's niece killed a deer Saturday near his mom's house. She was so excited. I just can't imagine doing that!!

normabyrd said...

WANDA!!---PENDLETON CO. was 1st on the SNOW ADVISORY list in WV---What are they hunting?--TURKEYS or DEER with a bow?----will need his long-johns!!---We had flurries yesterday---& winds---COLD!--It's 39° here!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Hunting used to be a ritual in our family. All the men would be gone for 2 weeks in November. We used to love it. Tom has lost the heart for it now, has no desire to hunt anymore since our dads are gone.

Lolly said...

Good morning all! 57 and sunny here in Texas.

Presently having our carpet cleaned. I was up early and thought I would get on and see eagles in the nest, but did not make it.

NORMA How about our football team?

Recorded the eagle program last night, so I will get to watch it later on today. Dentist appointment today. Yuk!

Had my two oldest boys here this weekend. Jack babysat so Laurel and I could shop. Bless him! Anyway, those boys are so precious. I layed down with Jacob to get him to settle down to go to sleep. After a short while, it was tap, tap, tap. "Grandmommy, you need to get your PJ's on." Will have them here several days Thanksgiving and then Christmas, I get them all this year. Yea!!!!!

MITS said...

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Hi costume lady; Well it is about 28 with a north-west wind so it's
cold;

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

No, they don't here, Norma, but Bland County in Virginia, right down the road does. It is a real holiday for them.

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Lolly, those grandsons will give your hands a workout! Tell them they have to be gentle with you so that your hands will be well enough to wrap their Christmas presents! :)

Lolly said...

Hi Helen! Took off the ace bandages yesterday afternoon and have not put them back on. They are doing great. They ache and sometimes when I turn them wrong I get a little pain. Just very weak hands and wrists. Wonder how long it will take to be able to do things like open the windows?

paula eagleholic said...

2 eagles at BWO now!

Costume Lady said...

Norma, Gene is going deet hunting. He can't use a bow very well anymore, after a nasty fall on frost-covered steps, so he will use his gun.

Lolly said...

LOL Good idea Wanda! Wish I had thought of that yesterday! I did have to remind them a couple of times to be careful, but I did have both wrists wrapped so that reminded them.

MITS said...

LOLLY, get one of those little balls to exercise you hands.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' LOLLY!!---What was the final score---I didn't stay up--but did notice that HEDGIE said BOO--on her blog last nite!!---So I guessed COWBOYS won!---WOW--DOUBLE--WOW!!----Hope you are feeling better!!!

Lolly said...

Thanks! You guys are full of great ideas this morning!

Lolly said...

NORMA.....Cowboys 14 Skins 10. ☺

Costume Lady said...

Dave, I stay indoors when it is in the 20's also. Build a fire and read a book or magazine.

MITS said...

eagle coming in for a landing at BWO

Floralgirl said...

Hello all:) Hey Norma, down at the bottom of the screen on your computer there should be a volume or speaker symbol you can click on to control the volume on computer, make sure you don't have the mute button checked,...just a thought. later gators, back out to work.

Lolly said...

Carpet all clean! Sure wish it would stay looking like that! You wouldn't think two people could mess up carpet so bad. LOL Just outdoors folks tracking in all the time! But now I am ready to decorate for Christmas as soon as Thanksgiving is over.

MITS said...

NORMA, do you have a 13 yr old kid in the neighborhood, who can show you where you sound button is????

paula eagleholic said...

Pretty pair at BWO, eagles at TH as well.

Lolly said...

Two eagles at BW now! Got a picture of one looking like it was "ducking" while the other was coming in for a landing. LOL

normabyrd said...

SISSY---They certainly take deer hunting seriously here too!!---Bd of Education---say they close school for the safety of students waiting on buses!----Every one knows!!---TEACHERS ARE HUNTERS TOO!!----ho!

Lolly said...

Jack is not a hunter, and I am so glad. I would not want him to shoot a "deet" and he would not want to shoot a "deet" as well. He will just keep shooting armadillos and traping/killing moles.

paula eagleholic said...

Chowing down at BWO

Lolly said...

OMG! Just looked at Bob Quinn's latest pictures posted at BW. The sunset pictures are breath taking!!

normabyrd said...

HEY MEGAN!---I may ADOPT you!!---ho!---no problem!!---thanks--thanks!----I was looking for a button that said 'megaphone'- no markings!!----tried them all!!

normabyrd said...

LOLLY!!---I always want 'ONE OF EACH' when I look at BOB'S pics!!--I love the sunset too!!!---I have some of his photos!!---He is GOOD!!

normabyrd said...

HELEN!!---I WISH I had my 10 yr. grandson here or any one else's grand-kids!!----Our area used to be full of kids---now very few!----

Lolly said...

Norma, at our dinner Bob donated some pictures and I bought one of a BW eagle, but that sunset pictures "speaks" to me. LOL

MITS said...

UPDATE FOR LUNEY

Monday, November 17
I - the “absentee aunt” who learns of the family news a bit late - don’t regularly watch Panda Cam or read the updates. I catch up with the cub and Lun Lun on Sunday and Monday nights. The distance serves a purpose. Catching sight of the cub after being away for almost six days renders the changes in his size and development all the more astonishing. At 3.817 kilograms, he has gained almost one pound since I last saw him.

Other truly noticeable changes have taken place. A once long, thin, hairless tail, is now the fully furred, broad-based triangular shape characteristic of giant pandas. Head up; eyes alert. Face rounded by thickened pelage. Legs strengthened enough to lift his weight, even if for only a few seconds at a time. Following sounds with directed head and body movements; catching glimpses of motion in the periphery. Each day, each week, each month brings new advances. And soon, a name!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I had Tom get me some Biofreeze while he was out and it is a miracle!! My back is feeling so much better. Still there but does not take my breath now. I am so impressed!!

Costume Lady said...

Lolly, have you seen the adorable little foxes that he photographed? I have to wonder how on earth he got such a photo without them running away.

Lolly said...

Okay, I am making Christmas ornaments for grand-kids and great nieces and nephews. I better get with it, before leaving for the dentists.

Jack is out building a new picket fence around my herb garden. ☺ Yea!

BBL ♥

MITS said...

Biofreeze, huh, Sissy....my back was killing me last night....will have to go get some....have one of those Therma Care heat wraps on since 3 this a.m.

Lolly said...

Yes, Wanda....I saw yours! Fantastic pictures. However, I bought that eagle picture and Jack asked where I was going to hang it. I have nothing I want to take down. Help!!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I had heard of it before and heard it was really good but I had no idea. It is a little expensive, $14 for a tube, but worth every penny!!

Lolly said...

So, biofreeze is something you rub on your back?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks for the update on Luney!! He really is growing. I dread them changing the cam back to regular time. I will miss him terribly.

MITS said...

normabyrd said...

WHOA!!---LOLLY--you are a "HAPPY CAMPER" as long as your husband keeps shooting those ARMADILLOS!!!
ho!---you are so funny!!----I admit---DEER are more handsome than the ARMADILLO!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yeah, it is in a tube. Only sold it at the pharmacy, not Walmart or anywhere like that.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

http://www.biofreeze.com/

Lolly said...

Thanks....sounds like something to keep on hand. Will give it a try!

Really do have to go! BBL

Have a great day all!!!!

Costume Lady said...

SISSY, my grandaughter works at a Health Spa and she recently brought a Roll-on bottle of Biofreeze for us to try and it is great! $10.00 for the 3oz bottle.

Costume Lady said...

Have a good day LOLLY!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Have a good one Lolly. See ya later.

normabyrd said...

Little "CC" CUB BOY is now behind bars!!---ho!---He can't climb over
this gate!---He looks so cuddly!!---have a look---SISSY!!----BUT I don't want to see you on a bus headed toward ATLANTA!!--ho!

MITS said...

MOOSE on cam

normabyrd said...

HEY SISSY!---Does the cream have an ODOR?

Mema Jo said...

Good Late Morning - sorry I missed seeing some of you Momsters/Dadsters.
I think I would like some of that
BioFreeze - Sounds as though it has been tested & recommended by my Eagle Buddies!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

It does have an odor but it goes away almost immediately. Vanishing odor it says on the tube. I think I love it!!

Mema Jo said...

Suz had sent email with pic that Finney 2008 is up & running again.

Primo the moose needs some snow!
Maybe the Snowman cam could accommodate him.

Clouded leopard pair are resting!
Yes, Norma their coats do remind you
of a large snake......

MITS said...

hey Jo;)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning Jo!! How are ya this morning?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Panda fussin?

MITS said...

tree climbing panda

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Jo...slept in this morning?
SISSY now has 3 loves--Tom, Pandas and BioFreeze :)

MITS said...

hope he did not fall out of that tree.

MITS said...

hmmm, wonder if it is that order, Wanda?

Deb said...

Hi, everyone. I can't believe I got all the way to Yankton to get the dog's haircuts and no purse. I stopped to see if I could find any eagles and only saw one.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Exactly Wanda, in that order.

MITS said...

oh no, Deb:(

Good afternoon, Jim.

Costume Lady said...

Good Afternoon, Jim...did you conk out on us last night? You forgot to say GOODNIGHT :)

Deb said...

I put up 3 pictures, one eagle and two from my front yard when I drove up today.

Mema Jo said...

lol I didn't sleep in by my clock!
I don't get my feet out on the floor
until it's anywhere between 9 & 10.
I think the habit is age related...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

What's with all the panda fussin' at NZ?

Deb said...

Back to Yankton to get the dogs. BBL

Mema Jo said...

Deb - post a pic of your dogs for us.

MITS said...

Tian still wants to play and Mei does not.....

Mema Jo said...

Hubby is doing his LAST LEAF collection he hopes. Trees are almost bare - the last leaf has not fallen yet.

Don't know what programming Dish or Verizon, etc. may have.
Whoa...glad none of us live in Huntington....unhealthiest city in the country!!!
Wow, Sharon must really be feeling better to get into a mess like WalMart...hope she's using a scooter!

MITS said...

I read that yesterday, Lynn, they have more pizza places then health gyms...

Mema Jo said...

MITS- Is it harder to run the Panda cams when they are outside compared to when they are in their dens?

MITS said...

yes, Jo it is. So many more cams to follow.

MITS said...

I prefer the late shift:)

Mema Jo said...

My very thoughts, Lynn about the scooter! Bet our gal better take an afternoon nap!

Mema Jo said...

Going in to get dressed for the day & get some lunch

BBL

MITS said...

otter brothers are resting together.

Hedgie said...

Jo, some of those leaves won't fall until mid-winter or when new buds push them off!!! Ed should be able to relax after he finishes this round!!! I can't believe all the little twigs that came down in the weekend winds!!

Mema Jo said...

I heard that Helen!
They are so cuddly cute
Thanks for the heads up -
Now I'll BBL

Hedgie said...

Lolly, don't know how you can work w/ ornaments w/ sore hands!!! Superwoman!
Deb, glad you didn't get stopped by cops!!

Hedgie said...

Lolly, don't know how you can work w/ ornaments w/ sore hands!!! Superwoman!
Deb, glad you didn't get stopped by cops!!

Hedgie said...

Have only gotten halfway thru' American Eagle...so good!! Cried over the dead female, laughed at the "skaters" and marveled at the way one took the fish out of his talons and ate it in flight!!

Hedgie said...

Where did everyone go?? I even broke and ate lunch (yum...liverwurst and onion w/ mustard on rye!)....yoohoo!

Hedgie said...

Lil Luney is all alone, too!

Hedgie said...

Now Lun is back.

Hedgie said...

She just climbed up the fence and disappeared!!

Hedgie said...

And climbed back down.

Hedgie said...

And dragged baby out of sight. Fun to watch!

paula eagleholic said...

Hi Hedgie!

Hedgie said...

Hi, Paula!! How's everything with you today?

Mema Jo said...

The otter brothers are awake and on the move.

PA woods has some snow covered leaves.

Primo still on Moose Cam.

Hello Paula & Lynn

Hedgie said...

Hey, Jo...did you see my post yesterday about sea otter hairs?????
Over 1 mill/square inch!!!

magpie said...

I hear Eagles at Maine.....

magpie said...

Oh, and a Moose passing through at Moose Watch

magpie said...

It's my Week-end and I am Magpie !!! Hear me Roar !

xo ♥

Red said...

Hello Everyone. I've just been luring today. Sometimes I say it best when I say nothing at all. lol

MITS said...

well you are quite alluring, Red.:)

MITS said...

but you were probably lurking:)

MITS said...

Hello Margy, enjoy your weekend:)

Red said...

Sorry Mits, I dropped the k there and didn't notice it. It should have been LURKING. :)

MITS said...

I know, Red, was just pulling your leg;)

magpie said...

Hi Red And Everyone else

Rd, I think you had it right the first time: Luring ! Point us in the direction of what to watch this afternoon !

♥ ♥ ♥

magpie said...

I mean RED How could I drop the "e" - must be contagious, dropping letters ! xo

magpie said...

I'm enjoying the best cup of coffee of the day, in one of my Momsters Eagle Mugs ! Life is Good !

MITS said...

all this dropping, is like watching the Stock Market:(

magpie said...

BIOFREEZE :
Have been using it for months (but I am out right now! ) - It is kinda pricey, but worth every penny...get it at my chiropractors...Now, when THEY use it during a therapeutic massage, that is the best ! Sciatica is a constant Bear for me...I am quite the contortionist when it flares up, trying to find a good stretching routine....ice packs, heat packs, whatever works at the time....

magpie said...

Good One Mits !

magpie said...

Hunting -

Have done my share of it over the years, but I was lousy, got one deer, and a few squirrels, but this is how we filled our freezer, and rarely ever had to buy any other kind of meat for the entire year....It is a Country thing I guess...Just getting out in the outdoors was the Best! Noo phones, no radios.....no nothing but nature ! And I always was more interested in bird-watching....not paired up with my hunting partner anymore, but he still shares the wealth with me!

xo ♥

magpie said...

I guess Moose Cam is not refreshing, but it is stuck on a beautiful view of Mr. Moose...

Red said...

Penn. squirrels are getting fat on Penn woods cam.

MITS said...

eagle BWO

magpie said...

Time for a visit with elderly neighbor lady - be back later, hopefully in time for an Evening Eagle Visit ! xo

magpie said...

EAgle just landed in Maine....

magpie said...

That's what I get for checking everything one last time....
leaving that Eagle to you guys !

xoxo TTFN ♥

magpie said...

He's already on the take off branch !

MITS said...

all gone in Maine.

Ceil said...

Eagle still at BWO

MITS said...

need to go to store, but waiting for eagles to come in

Mema Jo said...

Just a few snowflakes in my valley!!

Mema Jo said...

I am watching Luney's little feet starting to move around........

Mema Jo said...

Watching the nest but need to go find dinner....... BBL

Red said...

I'm slaving in the kitchen this afternoon cooking seafood for Ms. Red and I.

Seafood

MITS said...

ROFLMBO, RED:)

Costume Lady said...

RED, I don't think Mrs. Red would appreciate that meal...:)

Red said...

True. She hates hot dogs.

magpie said...

Red - You are too much! It looks pretty tasty, actually !

MITS said...

There is an e-mail out there, somewhere, that has that pic, and so many other neat food dishes

Red said...

Someone just emailed it to me. I just put it on Photobucket.

magpie said...

Boy, it is cold, wet and raw around these parts....
feels like.....November!

xo ♥

magpie said...

Spidey's Web is perfectly poised for some visitors!

Red said...

47° in North Alabama today too. Going to 25 tonight.

MITS said...

I'm giving them til 5:30p.m., then will go to store....need food:)

Deb said...

I am back home again. I saw 2 more eagles, one first year from the looks and another adult. The adult was in a tree right next to the highway about 15 miles from here. I figured by the time I turned around and went back he/she would be gone, but it even stayed while I got a few pics of it.


Jo, will find a picture of my dogs, or take a new one.

Deb said...

Red, I'll take some seafood, looks like a fun meal!

MITS said...

great pics, Deb:)

Deb said...

Thanks, I need a window mount so I can stabilize the camera when I am in the car--the head is a little fuzzy. :(

magpie said...

Deb - Those photos are Grrrreatt, as Tony the Tiger would say

xo Can't wait to see the hounds! ♥

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good evening everyone. Another day almost behind me. Trip to the store wore me out today. Sissy still fighting the back spasm. Both of us together might make one whole person.

magpie said...

Sharon, is that you disguised as Sissy ?????

magpie said...

It doesn't matter which one, as long as we "hear" from one of you !

xo ♥

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Yes, it was, I forgot to put in my account name and password!

magpie said...

Computer getting real pokey, lilke its operator! time to clean up and shut down..if the Eagles show up, please someone grab a picture !

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Going to lay back down for a little while. Will blog again after while.

magpie said...

It's okay Sharon...you have good credit with us....make as many goofs as you want, just stay goofy with us...Rest Well ! xo

Deb said...

Moose cam is updating, two moose were on there, now back to one.

magpie said...

Oh, new Moose cam pic..Bull is on the move ! xo

magpie said...

Whoooops, the Sow is on the move....sorry Moosie....

magpie said...

I gotta get off of here...

Deb said...

Bull stayed for quite awhile, now it is on the female.

Ceil said...

deet on the snowman cam When I looked in they were not there and just then here they come 4 of them.

Ceil said...

Deb just looked at the pictures. They are great.

magpie said...

Butt Up In Moose Land ! What a picture !

magpie said...

I see the Deet too, Ceil !

magpie said...

"xi♥" I guess means "Hugs I Love"
Too excited to type I guess...

Hello all Evening ♀'s and ♀'s

magpie said...

Oh man, I left the ♂'s out!
Sorry Gents,....xo

Deb said...

I loaded the dogs picture. Couldn't get them to both pose nicely at the same time, so here is the best one I could get.

magpie said...

Time to make some phone calls...TTFN - -

Loretta, Dana, others... hope to "see" you tonight....

Hedgie: Thanks for posting some alternate show times for the Eagle Program...I have none of the fancy channels you mentioned, but I do have PBS !

xo

magpie said...

DEB - I want one of each! That's a great picture !!

Ceil said...

Deb they are adorable. Miss my dogs. Dalmatian named Lady Victoria and Shepherd/lab named Princess. An we live in a townhouse as us older people say row house.

MITS said...

Costume Lady said...

Mema Jo said...

You canine friends are beautiful...
I really do like them!!
Thanks Deb
