GOOD MORNING STEVE AND THANK YOU...ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND.
Oh, yes it is November, Steve; I forgot. October really flew by!
Last day to have the shop open! It has been fun, but these 10-11 hour days are rough. Thank Goodness I have Capt. Gene to help me.
I don't know what to expect today...with Halloween being last night, I don't know if there are going to be any parties tonight. Probably so...people like to PARTY. There are always those who decide at the last minute to go to a party and they are the ones who are easiest to please (in a hurry and will take anything that fits) :)
Almost time to open up.HAVE A GOOD DAY...it's going to be a beauty.
Nice morning here in western PA. Haven't seen any turkeys on the Pix cam today. Maybe they know that today is the first day of gobbler season. Beautiful in ME, but no action.Our nest is empty too. Got my eagle fix at BWO a while ago.
The day after...aaah...gonna go get some grub and wash the car.
Hi Granny, good to here from you.
Hi Paula....will you wash my truck for me? Went birding on Thursday and dirt roads tend to leave grime. LOL We saw some deer, a few ducks and maybe 1000 of those RARE Canada geese. No sight of an eagle though.
You all have great weekend
GOOD SATURDAY MORNING EVERYONE
and Welcome November...one of my favorite months of the year:)
Luney is in the corner:)
Excellent update from Lisa of BWONest Update11/01/08:We've been seeing a large mix of immature or sub-adult bald eagles on the platform, and we even saw one get chased away by an adult.If you'd like to learn how to judge the age of these birds, check out this excellent guide to identifying sub-adult bald eagles. go to the page to check it out;)
Good Morning I bookmarked Lisa's Guide for trying to identify those sub-adult bald eagles we see on the BWO platform.Hope you have a good wined-up day at the shop, Wanda.Sorry I missed you GrannyBLT - glad you stopped by to say hello. Don't think Paula heard you about the dirty truck - at least no offers! lol
Good Beautiful sunny morning everyone.. I read the last blog to catch up and glad everyone enjoyed the trick or treaters that came knockin on the doors.. My trip to Florida was wonderful and Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party was terrific.. Im taking Jazzy and Rosa to Hagerstown to BIG Halloween Mummers Parade tonight with sister and kids some of you met at NCTC... Ohhhh DANA i want to tell you how very much i enjoyed your company and your moms for lunch the other day.. She is one person who just warms your heart with her delightful stories and smiles!!! Thanks for sharing those times with me..
ewwies at BWO:)....doing wing stretches
Thanks for sending me the pic, Mits. I am running through the cams at DC zoo & now getting a look at Luney! Hi there Nilla - Should be a great evening for the parade. I think I grew up watching those parades andeven marched in one or two for school. Always went to my Aunts on S.Potomac right where the parade would turn the corner. Bundle those little ones up! You too.I am out of here for awhile. Mits I didn't even buy a pumpkin for last night - had the scarecrows out!
***gOOD MORNING******EVERYBODY***I hope everyone has a great weekend...C(°ٿ°)DJim
Is that a strange critter in the BWO nest, or is it the shadow of the camera ... or both??C(°ٿ°)DJim
Now the Fish Crows and a Eeuuwie have arrived. Maybe some of them were on the camera earlier, casting strange shadows.C(°ٿ°)DJim
EALES AT OUR NEST:)
Belle in the middle and Lib at the top
Double Eagle Alert!!
Belle gone, Lib still at Noon
Lib still at noon, you can see his shadow
I did get a glimpse of Liberty, but then, on the first refresh, he was out of there...C(°ٿ°)DJim
hey Paula...have a great day today:)...loved the pics from last night:)...they are adorable:)
Look how high L & B are stacking the stickworks at the far end!! The shadow looks like they've built a tower down there.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Jim, he is still standing at noon...you can barely see his feetsiesThanks, Mits! DIL didn't tell me what they were going to do...cute surprise...just as good as Humpty Dumpty
JIM - THE SHADOW IS LIBERTY...
Was an eewwiiee party at BWO, but only one left now
Thanks For saying Hello Jo.. Yup i sure did too never missed aparade but then again lived on Salem Avenue so we could walk.. We would start to tear up old newspapers into confetti in Sept. remember could throw it back then.. Have big bags full and cold Brrrr . this years parade starts at 6 pm because its so big.. Sister is setting up our chairs down by Bester School.. where there are concession stands for hot chocolate!! Step moms making a big pan of Ginger Bread and snacks for after too.. yum yum..
Lib is gone now...
Howdy Nilla, have fun.
The little Alcoa eyasses were all banded on Thursday, but they haven't put any info as to their findings on the sexes or anything on the site.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Nilla, have fun at the parade!! I'm sure you and Jo have a lot of fond memories of those old parades!Wind is working against me in the leaf department.....argh!!!
They have the Panda cub at Atlanta in extreme close-up now. Take a peek.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Saturday, November 1I have noticed that the cub's favorite place to sleep is next to the board that makes up one wall of the nest box. Whenever Lun Lun puts him down and leaves him in the middle of the nest box, he seems to always wiggle and scoot until he is right up against the nest box wall. Sometimes he even ends up lying next to the wall closest to Lun Lun when she is sleeping on the floor outside of the nest box. Is this his goal? We shall never know, but this seems unlikely, because he does it even when Lun Lun is off in another den. Perhaps he just likes to touch a solid surface when he sleeps; or possibly he just scoots around until he bumps into something and has to rest. Unfortunately, it is impossible to understand the thought processes of a giant panda cub, but I do find it interesting that even at 63 days old, the cub seems to be showing a preference for a sleeping space. The cub's most recent weight is 2,829 grams, which is over 6 pounds!Heather Baker RobertsCarnivore Keeper I

Beautiful pink sunset tonight:)

Daggone, they're gone!
Sure was nice to see them live...twice today!
I see our 'light sticks' are on...
Darn, they're gone, probably up in the tree branches.. Paula, that can of worms costume is great!
Anne told me last week, Paula, but I don't remember,,she and Kev were going to be a farmer and a farmers' wife....I will have to call them...
Yup, John has quite the imagination...he did good!
they may come back like they did last night briefly:)....So Megan is the maze down for another year
Having friends over for a cookout tonight...brother still here...will take him home tomorrow and visit w/ Mom.She's really proud of herself...she stood for 20 seconds yesterday!

OK, pic all changed!
Catch ya'll later...My pic is the eagle from Open House...
Guess what, Paula!! SO IS MINE!!!! I had changed it earlier this afternoon, but don't think I've posted since!!
Tell your mom "You go girl!!!"
Congrats on "your" win, Norma! Skins don't play til Monday night, so weekend will seem extra long, not to mention the extra hour!!
Hi, everyone, I am home after a great day here. It started out cold, 2 jackets and gloves, ended up with a jacket. In between I wish I had brought shorts and a t-shirt along! I had to settle for jeans and a long sleeve shirt with sleeves pushed up.Pictures are loading now from today.
glad you had a good time, Deb...still 66 here, went to 79 today:)
Glad you had a good day, DEB. We will be waiting for your photos.
Don't know what the temp was here, Helen, but it was BEAUTIFUL.
fat raccoon at PA
yes it was a great day.....:)
It is 64 here, but it is windy and when the sun leaves, it feels cooler. I wish the wind didn't blow as much as it does here. Tomorrow 74 for here!
Large dear's face right in the cam at the Snowman.....
there are several deer there
the goose is dressed in a Michigan State Spartans cheerleader outfit:)
If the deer are hear can the bear befar behind?Misspelled deer's face - previous comment..... I said dear you knowdearies what I meant!
yes dear, we did:):):)
I have one loading now, but will finish the rest after I eat.
the deer look very alert!
OK I need helpDoes that goose have ears........
Luney is nursing...
its a girlie bow on her head:)
Great! Thank you so much.Lun Lun has been taking Luney in and out of that den this evening.The deer are now in the Pa Woods with the raccoons.
I still wish they had sound at Atlanta, so you could get the full cub experience:)
Our Mass was a full house - had one baptism and then we have a brick floored patio - Our deceased members have their names & dates engraved.NOV 1 is when we have a special (Brief) prayer service for those departed. I intend to have a brick so all of you can come on out to Holy Family and see me - Now since Megan is taking out the trash...I'll do her thingy....Brick in the Wall..
My daughter and granddaughter should be in Myersville & said they would stop by before going back to Catonsville. I am awaiting!
roflmbo, Jo, you are soooo hip:)
Today we were driving around Lake Andes and talking about the great blues. We were wondering where they moved their heronry to. We saw a nest and wondered if it were a heron nest, then in flew a bird! Not a heron, a bald eagle!! I put two pictures on my page. We saw 4 other eagles, all too far away for pictures.
good eagle shot, Deb:)
WOW- Pink Floyd, Jo- I'm impressed. you go girl...
raccoon and deer at snowmancam
I don't know why I am cold, turned heat up and made a big mug of hot chocolate, maybe because I am tired.
get under those covers, Deb....might be coming down with something:(
Hot bath, pj's and a throw seem to be doing the trick. I battle allergies this time of year and it runs you down. Especially after a day outside like today, climbing through the weeds.
time for you to relax, you have had a few really busy weeks.
Deb, were you TRICK OR DRINKING LAST NIGHT? That could be your problem;)
That's my problem, Wanda, I WASN'T trick or drinking, I should have been out having a drink!Helen, I leave for the Black Hills on Wednesday, so on the 12th I can relax. Mostly the Hills will be relaxing, though. We are staying in a cabin, no tv, no phone. I'll probably go stir crazy.
My avatar doesn't show up very well. It is really pretty (has an eagle flying by). I'll have to find another one. PHOOEY!
Some little creature flitting around on the snowman cam.
hmmm, that is roughing it a bit....
I have seen that critter, thought it was a raccoon at first
Well, even though it is only 9:18, I am tired and heading to bed!
Didn't finish before I posted, Night everyone! TTUT
I guess if I want to get an extra hour's sleep I better get to bed now.Good Night Everyone Deb, Isure hope you feel better tomorrow.Prayers for all our needs being said(((hugs)))
Night all, see ya tomorrow!
Good Night Deb...Hope you feel tip top in the morning.I guess I had better get some sleep too. GOOD NIGHT EVERYONESLEEP TIGHTPRAYERS FOR ALL
Good Night Jo and Paula.Glad to hear your Mom is standing now. That is a BIG improvement!
Checking in to say goodnight. Tomorrow will be a chicken-little day...piece of space junk the size of a refrigerator expected to hit...they don't know where or when yet...so, eyes to the sky!! Maybe we'll see an eagle while looking for junk!Peace.
WHOA! That caught my eye Lynn! I don't want to see any JUNK while looking for an EAGLE! lolGood Night for sure.........
Crows Rioting at Maine Cam, what a racket !
Good Morning Margy...We have owls hooting outside right now. They should be sleeping.Heard a loud noise towards Shepherdstown Rd. and then the power went off momentarily. Hope it wasn't a wreck.
Good Morning Wanda...aaah..Owls, how I would love to hear some !Hope it wasn't a wreck either....I haven't heard any sirens...not sure if I would hear them from this far away....Man those Crows were so raucous! And then I heard the little bleat of an Eagle call....now all is quiet !xo
Oooh, Gobblers in Pa....
And a deer at the salt lick, there were three there a few mins ago. Quick! An Eagle at Maine !
Anyone up to see that Eagle at Maine ?
Eagle at Maine gone now,Two adults at BWOand a Pile of Big Gobblers at Pa. Good Morning everyone..enjoy that extra hour of sleep ?xo
Margy I did..... Good Morning All...was eating and then flew up on a branch. Later nice fly out.Thanks Lisa for the Guide for Age of Eagles. ( :
Hi Dana! I just realized that I could make the Maine Cam full screen, it was nice, saw just what you did....did you hear all those crows - must have been a dozen or so -
And those turkeys, are so colorful !
I know Margy I thought it was going to be a "nest takeover". Never a one showed just all the calling back and forth. On going thought they would never stop lol
There is a nice buck with the Gobblers now !
Margy you like looking for new spots to see things. Have you ever been to Cacapons new overlook they built? You can see 3 states...it is beautiful from up there.
6 pounder trying to push himself around awesomely cute boy
Going to catch up emails
DANA I know there is something called the Eiderlon Preserve in Morgan County, lots of trails, and I think that is what you might be referring to...haven't been there but it is a Must Do for "one of these days."
GOOD SUNDAY MORNING EVERYONE
GOOD SUNDAY MORNING MITS!
Good Morning again...I was wandering through the wonderous internet. There is a new hearing device called, Lyric, that sounds like a possibility for GeeGee. She doesn't do well with the ones that she has.
love the bookend eagles at BWO
sounds good Wanda.....get it sounds good;)
I just pictured the size of Luney in my mind, and 6 pounds is the size of my Karla when she was born. A nice little armful!
I haven't seen OUR EAGLES yet this morning but might have missed them before I got home..Hunter's Paradise in Pennsylvania, Buck and Toms at the site...now just the Toms...BWO active still .....and I am definitely winding down !
yes, but Karla didn't have teeth and claws, made her easier to hold
Margy, do you go back in tonight...what happened to day work?
I got an email from my Grandaughter last night and she told me that gas is now $2.09 in Winchester...I don't know what it is here..Margy? Dana?
Beautiful new pictures by DEB -
Aren't we so fortunate to have friends on here that share their adventures and photos with us? We see things through them that we might never see on our own.
Lun Lun looks like a big stuffed animal ! Wanda: Can you believe, I weighed 9 lbs 1 oz...the biggest and last of my Mother's babies....I think I am all cammed out for now, time to rest the eyeballs...Enjoy this Wonderful Beautiful day, Eagle Buds
Morning everyone. Missed the action in Maine, but caught the buck and turkeys in PA. Eagles at BWO. Hope everyone has a beautiful day.
GOOD HOPE YOU TURNED THE CLOCKS BACK MORNING TO ALL!
Didn't get on at all yeasterday as I was finally taking a Saturday to clean my whole house, but did get into the emails.See our nest is MT, but BWO has two eagles and turkeys, turkeys, turkeys all over Pa cam
That extra hour killed me. I was up and down all night just thinking about it. If I had the gumption, I was going to get on the blog to see if anyone else couldn't sleep or woke up early.
WANDA I like your granddaughters gas price better than ours. I think ours is stuck at $2.39. :(
Margy, it's no wonder your Mom never had any more babies! LOL
Hey MARGIE, I have you beat. I think my mom said I was 10 pounds something and breach.
If those gas prices stay where they are, or go even lower, we may go out West again. Oh, I would LOVE that.
It looks like a sunny day here today. Just right for going to mass this morning. I am sitting here waiting for my hubby to finish getting it together. :) I still hae to change my pocketbook over, so I had better get the lead out.You all have a wonderful day and keep talking so I can check in later to see what I've missed. Later Gators!
My Aunt had a 14 pound baby. That would be my cousin that we just visited in Pennsylvania.
Good Day, Candy.
Hi Again You all know I seldom really leave the first time! Grannyblt good to "see" you and hope to meet you sometime, love your moniker! Yah, all that turkey time in Pa, and did you see the nice buck chowing down with them too?
MARGY go to bed!!!!!!!
I have to try to pull myself together for church. My hair looks like I was in a hurricane. Curling iron...here I come! Have a blessed day.
and Carolinabeachmom: Been Waiting to be on here same time as you! Yep - ten pounds is a big baby, and Baby Look at You Now ! - I saw where you said your husband worked as a Telecommunicator in Dare County for 20 years...that's a long time, I just passed that milestone this past April...it sure can be some kind of interesting job at times!xo
Well, six calendars and eight clocks later, and I am caught up, except for my wrist watches...the most fun clock to move forward was the Bird Clock, a cacophony of chirps and warbles ! You can't go too fast or the birds get all mixed up ! And now I realize it is only 8:21 instead of 9:21...Whoo Boy, but my body tells me it is time to find the pillows and blankies...so I leave all the Eagles and Turkeys and Dreams to you guys for a few hours...xoxox z z z z z
Yes, Mother Helen...just wish you were here to tuck me in and read me a bedtime story! Love you guys....
Margy for you that is hard to believe such a large baby. To look at you one would think you was a preemie. That just goes to show "not always does good things come in small packages" lol Sleep well.....back to emails
Beautiful day in Finland;)
MOrning, all. Must be the name of the game Wanda - my hair looked a wreck too!Must have been that extra hour of sleep2 eagles at BWO
