Moose on moose cam.

MITS said...

hummers peeking out of the nest

Floralgirl said...

Hot chocolate, please...

MITS said...

wow, Megan, that looks like an ad from the 50's :)

Floralgirl said...

It's funny, isn't it? I like the old ads more than the new, they should bring em back. Now if I could just find that refreshment stand.. but I did have some stale marshmallows, so I'm heading back out..brr....

MITS said...

there are some funny ads today, but the old ones still crack me up

MITS said...

Deb said...

Good morning, do we have two baby hummers or is the unhatched egg hiding?

Deb said...

The big ball of fluff at CC has an osprey in it. Every once in awhile its head pops out.

MITS said...

The eggs were laid: October 29 & 31, 2008 ... Hatched: November 15 & 16, 2008]

Deb said...

Thanks, Helen. I had checked that when I opened the cam and it wasn't there. Mom is off the nest now.

MITS said...

I did see an part of an egg earlier

MITS said...

been in there alot this a.m., keeps getting smacked in the face with the fluff...:)

Deb said...

Two moose on moose cam.

Deb said...

both osprey at CC.

MITS said...

their full screen capacity is great

Deb said...

I can't do full screen for some goofy reason. I opened CC in Firefox, same thing.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Okay, I was just reading through the blog and I did not see an Amen at the end of the forecast!

Mema Jo said...

Well you know what to expect when our outstanding eagle eye isn't around to keep tabs on us lol

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good afternoon everybody. I am doing okay today. Last night while lying and watching TV, I was eating popcorn. Really bad idea. I got choked on the popcorn and thought I was going to die. Funny how we forget things. Never lay down and eat!! DUH!

My Sissy is cooking vegetable soup for supper. I hope I can eat it. My appetite still isn't too though.

Mema Jo said...

Guess you thought you could do what the pandas do and lay back & chew
on their bamboo!! Well when you choke - you cough - I bet that hurt!

carolinabeachmom said...

Eagle Alert in our nest.

carolinabeachmom said...

HELLO EAGLE IN NEST!

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh my, I guess no one is at home. :(

carolinabeachmom said...

Jo, Sharon, Mits, Deb. Come out come out from wherever you are.

carolinabeachmom said...

Eagle is still there. I need someone to twll me who it is.

carolinabeachmom said...

I am going crazy because I can't raise anyone. You must all be napping or eating. Too late for church.

SHARON Glad to hear you are feeling better but that popcorn episode is what happened to me one time. I don't eat Popcorn much after that anymore.

Hummer is off nest and babies are visible.

Deb said...

I got it, Candy!!

carolinabeachmom said...

DEB Thank heavens someone will see it. Is It Liberty. Doesn't look big enough for Belle? I finally even checked to see if the clock was right or stopped.

Deb said...

From that angle it is hard to tell, but I think you are right on it being Lib.

carolinabeachmom said...

I liked the sound of Steve's message on yesterdays blog about the cam and am hoping that we have better luck this year.

Deb said...

BOTH!!

carolinabeachmom said...

DEB Both birds in nest now.

Deb said...

That answers the question, it was Lib, Belle has arrived.

carolinabeachmom said...

WOW What a day. It makes up for me not being able to see them much during the week!!!!!!!

Deb said...

I hope so, too, Candy. It was so much fun to watch when we had a live feed and sound.

carolinabeachmom said...

Yes DEB, you can see that Belle is much larger. I am so excited, that I missed mother hummer coming back to her nest. I'll take the eagles anytime.

carolinabeachmom said...

One gone. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted. Still one there.

Deb said...

Lib took off.

Deb said...

I take that back, he is still there, at 12 o'clock.

Deb said...

Look right above Belle's head, he is there.

carolinabeachmom said...

OMG, I see he is still there. We need a wider or taller screen!

Deb said...

I wonder if everyone is watching football!

carolinabeachmom said...

Liberty must b e making room so that Belle can get the feel of the egg cup so they can start to get that made. :)

MITS said...

just walked in from church...hey candy, some of us go to Noon Mass up here...

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh that could be too DEB. I never got the TV turned on when I came in from church and breakfast. I wanted to look at our nest soooo bad as I hadn't had the chance in a couple of days. This has really been a little time. I think I gave the call around 12:37? for the first appearance of Liberty.

I guess we will have to enjoy the beautiful sight for them. :)

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey MITS. We don't have a 12 noon mass here. We just have 9am. This just goes to show you you should get up earlier and maybe catch them twice in one day. :)

Deb said...

Wow, long visit today. After all the quick in and outs, this is nice.

carolinabeachmom said...

MITS so glad you could catch them.

Mema Jo said...

Great to see them both!
Even if it is only his feet.

When they go up to the nest for a quick something or other
WE NEED TO
TELL THEM TO ADJUST THE CAN A LITTLE
SO WE CAN SEE LIB AT 12 NOON

Mema Jo said...

You know I mean the C A M

carolinabeachmom said...

BTW Did the hummer have 3 eggs. Looks like an egg left unbroked in the nest or maybe it is just the shell.

carolinabeachmom said...

So glad to see you are on witnessing the beautiful sight JO.

MITS said...

hummer had 2 eggs, and 2 have hatched

Deb said...

Well, it was nice while it lasted!

MITS said...

off to find something to eat...me...not the eagles...bbl

carolinabeachmom said...

Thanks Helen, I must be seeing a part of a baby chick then.

Oh well, that is what I get for trying to see if we had live cam on our nest. As soon as I did that, the nest emptied out, but they were there for a good while.

carolinabeachmom said...

I'm off to change from my church clothes so I can get comfortable. BB

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for that heads up Deb or else I would have missed them. Getting a lot of emails with pics from Germany.

Hubby is putting a new hard drive in
TODAY!

Mema Jo said...

Signing off in order to get my new
hard drive ! I'll be back soon in FULL FORCE!

movin said...

Lun Lun and son are in the midst of a cute cycle and I think she just grabbed him by the back of the neck and carried him into the den.

He was really energetically squirming around the floor, so he'll probably be crawling soon.



C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Hedgie said...

Afternoon, fowl friends! Been lurking off and on. Was just watching Atlanta...lil Luney is growing so fast...Lun Lun acts like it's getting hard to pick him up w/ her mouth...mostly just dragging him, and then cuddles him up to her neck....so cute!
BTW....did you know that sea otters have a million hairs per square inch on their bodies???

Hedgie said...

SLEETING here...argh!!!

movin said...

THAT IS HAIRY!! Hedgie. I'd be lucky to have 1 million hairs per acre anymore.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Hedgie said...

LOL! Bald is beautiful, Jim!!!
Going to get the trash out before anything else happens weatherwise--calling for flurries. Then a snack and a movie. SKINS play Dallas tonight at home....GOTTA WIN!!! BBL.

carolinabeachmom said...

Some new feed (corn or seed) has been strown out at Pa. cam and Suirrels are having their fill.

carolinabeachmom said...

Maine Cam sure looks cold and windy. Our nest is still MT. Maybe a visit will happen earlier om tje [,/

carolinabeachmom said...

That is earlier in the pm. :)

carolinabeachmom said...

Poor Luney keeps trying to pust himself into the wall. If he would only turn around and push with his feet against the wall, he might get someplace. You have all heard of butting your head up against a wall..........

carolinabeachmom said...

Everything seems calm for now,so guess I'll sign off for now. Later gators.

Deb said...

Eagle in Maine!

Costume Lady said...

DEB, love your new avatar! Mine is suppose to have falling leaves, also, but, try as I might...just couldn't get them to fall. They fall on my profile page, but when I SAVE it...they stop falling! Paula gave me instructions on how to do that and it use to work, but not now :( :(

Costume Lady said...

Where did everyone go? Must be supper time or game time. I'm going to have leftovers...so no sweat here! TTY

Costume Lady said...

CANDY...glad you got to see our Royal Pair!

MITS said...

been panda napping here, Wanda, and watching old movies.

Ceil said...

EAGLE ALERT OUR NEST

magpie said...

I see the Bird, Ceil, and I See You !

xo

MITS said...

why, yes, there is:)

MITS said...

nice that 30 second cam is working

Deb said...

I see it, too!

Deb said...

Darn, dog needs out, brb.

Deb said...

I made it back and still there.

MITS said...

tell dog to hold it.

Costume Lady said...

I SEE TOO!

MITS said...

spidey's nest looks like it is made of steel

Deb said...

I cheated and left the door open, don't have to wait and let him back in.

Ceil said...

Glad you heard me. I was yelling and trying to post. Lib I think

MITS said...

lol....was just going to ask will dog knock on door to be let back in:)

Deb said...

I wonder if Paula got to see them today when she was at NCTC.

MITS said...

she may have been there when they were there this afternoon.

MITS said...

looks like Lib's tail

Costume Lady said...

Wonder if Paula had some bacon at Betty's Restaurant :)

Costume Lady said...

I thought so, too, Helen.

Deb said...

Wanda, I think that is the first avatar I got to have animation. I have tried before and it hasn't work.

Costume Lady said...

Yep, that's Lib's feetsies.

magpie said...

Holler Eagle! and we all come running....

Hope to hear from Loretta soon on how the wedding went...hope she has pictures for us!
Maybe she is lurking and watching !

MITS said...

I still can't get my avatars on, without Sharon's help

Costume Lady said...

I haven't seen Anne-Marie on here for a while...has she gone away again? She and Deb are our GYPSIES.

MITS said...

thought that would happen..black screen than a poof.

Ceil said...

He looked all around for Belle and she did not show so he left.

Costume Lady said...

Sharon is so special. She is so good at sooo many things, especially spotting Lib & Belle, I can't believe she missed them this afternoon by 2 or 3 minutes. Or, maybe she did see them, but didn't feel like commenting.

Deb said...

Snowing in Alaska:

Mt. McKinley

Ceil said...

Hey Steve Let me know when they are going up the tree will come and get that spider and its web.

Deb said...

The other view:

Talkeetna cam

magpie said...

Well, that was nice....sure sounds like there was some mid-day Glory too!

Things like pretty windy in Pix PA -
Maybe even snowing a bit.

Time for another 12 hours of "run" at work...then off for a few days...then I can check all the cool sites you have all been posting...

Good to "see" everyone and I will sure miss the Evening Chatter!

Peace, Prayers, and Love,
xo ♥

magpie said...

Well, I guess "fun" would be more like it...not "run" - at work.

duh, fingers in the wrong place!

Ceil said...

Margy hope it is a slow evening.
Off to fix supper.

Mema Jo said...

Sure does look as though it is snowing in the PA woods! Hedgie you said it was sleeting over there sometime today.. All I know is that it is cold out there. I am never ready for this seasonal change.

My hard drive has lots of space now!

Mema Jo said...

Raccoons in Pa Woods having an early party this evening. 6 are there now

Mema Jo said...

Headed in at 7:00 to watch the Eagle Documentary. It is also on at 8:00 but a different channel.
Check out your area.........

BBL

Ceil said...

snowing on the snowman cam
Thanks Jo I forgot already

Hedgie said...

Hi again. Yes, Jo, we had sleet three different times. Cold and windy...fire is going so toasty inside!
Well, thank goodness this miserable NASCAR season is over. Haven't even watched much the last few races...what a bore.
Getting anxious for game at 8:15...GO SKINS!!!! ☺ ☺ ☺

paula eagleholic said...

Howdy, all. Stopped by the nest this morning...no Lib or Belle in sight...looked for turtle shells, couldn't find a one! All the leaves are off the tree!

Went to Betty's for Breakfast. Then went down to see Mom. Stopped by Mom's house and raked leaves.

I'll try to get some pics posted later...gotta watch the Nature Bald eagle program on PBS at 8.

Hedgie said...

How was mom today, Paula? DOing well, I hope.
Wasn't the wind working against you with the leaves?!

Costume Lady said...

We just got through watching the Bald Eagle Program on PBS...Enjoyed it very much!

MITS said...

wow....what an awesome show that was:)

Hedgie said...

I taped it to watch later.

Hedgie said...

Game time. Later!!

Ceil said...

Good show. Did not learn anything that I did not know thanks to all the information we have learned on the blog from our nest. Beautiful pictures.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening everyone.

MITS said...

Hello, Sharon:)

MITS said...

I thought the same thing, Ceil, we have learned alot about eagles:)

Mema Jo said...

Just finished watching the nature show WOW was he talking about OUR eagles at times or not... That snow storm segment did me in - got me teary eyed. I would give that a 4* rating. For someone watching that has never been through what we have seen and learned - I think they covered it all.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Sharon did you eat any of Sissy's veggie soup? It sounded so
good! I am hoping your appetite will soon return - Miss You ((hugs))

Costume Lady said...

I didn't know about the lead being a killer...that was so sad:(

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Sharon...are you home now or still at Sissy's?
SKINS GAME...BBL

Mema Jo said...

I think I see it snowing now on the snowman cam - there is more snow on the ground then earlier today.

Costume Lady said...

Sharon, if you can't eat the veggies in the soup, at least drink some broth...very good for healing.

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good evening everyone;I am watching
the nature show on public TV at
this time.It is on the Bald eagle.
I just love it.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I am still at Sissy's. Afraid to be by myself yet. I did eat a little soup. I am having pain when I eat for some reason, not sure what the reason is though.

I am watching the eagle show on PBS now. I too have learned about all of this stuff right here.
Waiting for Andrew to get home. He spent the weekend with Kelsey and her family so I haven't seen him since the surgery. Looking forward to getting a hug from the little turd.

Mema Jo said...

Sharon - is it raining or snowing in Bluefield? On the cam it just looks like the streets are wet.

Costume Lady said...

Sharon, maybe at half-time, Lynn will come on and give her opinion on the eating and tummy problem...It could be gas. I seemed to have a lot of gas after my surgeries.

Costume Lady said...

DAVE...I enjoyed that show too. Love anything that features eagles.

MITS said...

deer in Pa and snowman cam

MITS said...

SUNDAY ATLANTA UPDATE:)

Sunday, November 16
The cub must have been exhausted from his crawling attempts yesterday because tonight he slept the entire night until about 5:00 a.m., when he awoke because he was hungry. Lun Lun was also tired; after eating for an hour and a half late in the evening, she promptly fell asleep and slept the rest of the night. Since the cub is older, Lun Lun can spend more time away from him. Now the time she spends on her own includes resting as well as eating. I am not really surprised by the amount of time they spent sleeping – giant pandas typically spend about 10-12 hours per day resting in intervals of 2-4 hours at a time. Cubs, of course, spend much more time resting. As with all young mammals, panda cubs need to expend energy growing instead of involved in activity. Indeed, he is growing! In the past 24 hours, he has gained 81 grams, bringing his latest weight to 3.72 kg.

MITS said...

Lun and Luney are sleeping together

Mema Jo said...

I resemble pandas in some ways LOL

MITS said...

I think the most frequent questions I get at zoo..."is when are they going to wake up"?

MITS said...

only 1 falcon in the nest at Alcoa right now

paula eagleholic said...

PBS Show was great...loved hearing the wingbeats...

there was something new I heard on there...have to think of what it was...
I taped the show too so I could watch later..

Mom doing good...now to fatten her up...

Mema Jo said...

I just ate ice cream and my hands are so cold from holding the dish.
I feel like putting my gloves on...

Mema Jo said...

Anything can happen but it is the
Skins 7 Cowboys 0

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

I watched the nature show and just
loved it. I'll see all of you tomarrow.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, and I think it was bark in front of the cam...I couldn't see anything while I was there.

Mema Jo said...

Good Night Dave - If I get up earlier I very well could greet you.
Being retired meets my sleeping schedule.........

Mema Jo said...

Cowboys tied it up 7 to 7

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, my boy is home now so I am going to visit with him a little while and then go to bed. I don't know what is up with the eating thing but maybe I will lose a little weight in the process. ☺

Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur. Love you all.

Hedgie said...

Halftime....10-7 Skins...
Wanda, new Il Divo release Tues.--The Promise. First in 2 yrs.!

Mema Jo said...

Good Nite Sharon

Pray you have a good night's rest.

Say Hello to Andrew for me.

Mema Jo said...

Those Skins weren't going to let that half time come without the lead!

BBL

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

No precipitating right now Mema Jo but we had now during the night last night.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Meant not!

Costume Lady said...

LYNN, I didn't know about the new Il Divo album. When I got my new car, I would open the moon roof and put on my Il Divo CD and ride off into the sunset. Did it so many times I'm getting tired of same ol' same ol'. I will buy that for my birthday. Mom always gives me money for B'Day and I don't have a chance to spend it til after the shop is closed. THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP :)

Hedgie said...

Yes, Wanda, and Sharon...gas is often a big problem following abdominal surgery. Used to be they wouldn't even consider discharging until after a movement....now they just listen more for bowel sounds (gas movement). If you haven't "gone", Sharon, maybe some prune juice would be a help. At least some GasX would be worth a try.

Hedgie said...

Good position to facilitate gas movement is to lay on left side w/ left leg straight and right leg knee bent, drawn up toward chest. It lets the bowel kind of spread out and relax!

Costume Lady said...

SWEET DREAMS, SHARON...TOMORROW IS A NEW DAY ;)

Costume Lady said...

I love prunes and prune juice, but not what it does to me. I never need that kind of help.
My Mom uses Miralax and it works wonders for someone who is continually on pain meds. Until she discovered that, she was miserable.

Costume Lady said...

GAME BACK ON.

Deb said...

I just finished the eagle show, it was really good. I loved looking in the nests! I taped it, also, to save.

Deb said...

The dogs get their hair cut tomorrow at 8 AM, so I will need to be out the door at 7:20. I will go see how many eagles have arrived. I found 6 yesterday. (pictures on my page--4 of them were a long way away)

Mema Jo said...

Deb on the 3rd pic down Is that a
juvie on the left?

Hedgie said...

Boo...what a crock! Just can't believe these last two games.

Hedgie said...

Great pics, Deb!! As always!

Hedgie said...

Heading for tub. See you tomorrow! Sweet dreams, and peace for all.

Deb said...

There was only one adult, Jo. The rest were different ages of juveniles.

paula eagleholic said...

Jo, juvies in Deb's 2nd and 3rd pics...

Deb said...

The one you are talking about looks like it is going on 4. (I had to go see which one you were talking about.) In the middle picture I think the center eagle looks like 4 going on 5, but it was so far away, it is hard to tell.

paula eagleholic said...

That's cool you get to see eagles Deb. Around here, it's an hour or more drive to see that many...

Deb said...

The other is behind the tree limbs, but I don't think it is an adult either.

Deb said...

Pretty soon there will be more, I can't wait!

Mema Jo said...

You just keep on taking those pics - I love looking at them......

Mema Jo said...

Going to hit the hay.......

Good Night Everyone
Peace to you & yours

Prayers for everyone's needs being
said.......

((hugs))

paula eagleholic said...

Night Deb, and anyone else still awake!

Costume Lady said...

I just got around to looking at Deb's photos...the snow geese are sooo special. I would love to see that in person.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL

carolinabeachmom said...

GOOD MONDAY MORNING to all sleeping eagle and feather and fur watchers. All is quiet on the Eastern front. Had a minute so thought I'd check in to see if our special pair were visable.

BWO Nest is MT and just one lone deer at Pa. woods.

carolinabeachmom said...

Off to school. Hope you all have a wonderful day with many pleasant viewing hours.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

We have an eagle in our nest this morning. Good morning everyone!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Is anyone out there?

Costume Lady said...

WOW! I got here just in time!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING Sissy...Good way to start our day!

Costume Lady said...

GONE??

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Short and sweet this morning!

Costume Lady said...

How did Sharon sleep last night?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She is not sleeping a whole lot. She was up when I got up to work. I think she is up and down all night. She is doing really good though. I am amazed at how well she is doing.

Costume Lady said...

She is still in a lot of pain, but it should get a little better each day.
How are YOU sleeping? I know you have had a lot on your shoulders the past couple of weeks.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I am okay. Feel a little overwhelmed, but it is okay. Sharon's back spasm from last week jumped onto my back and that is driving me crazy but other than that I am okay.

magpie said...

Beautiful stately Eagle at Maine

magpie said...

Good Morning...I missed OUR NEST visitors but, maybe...they'll return! xo

magpie said...

Is it News that Finney Water Nest is back up? I haven't read last nights blog posts yet...I just saw a Ferry Boat !

Oh Man, Maine Eagle just took off..

xo ♥

magpie said...

I just went over to tell Suzanne and she had already discovered it!

Now to backtrack and see what I missed Sunday evening...

magpie said...

teeny tiny bird at BWO - far edge of the platform - two in fact

magpie said...

so small they already disappeared - squirrel heaven at Pix PA

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning magpie!! Missed the ferry boat this morning.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Tom stays at his mom's on Sunday night. He said she was having a really hard time. Losing Doug has really got her. It has got us all but she is especially having a hard time, understandably so. Bless her heart.

magpie said...

Helooooo Sissy ! I've Missed You, Lady !

Something
in the platform at BWO - a few birds I think, and Pix Pa will knock you out !

New Thread. December 9, 2017

Well, Judy Eddy, Eagle Eyed Sharon, and I, Hoda, have asked to be designated as Administrators for this blog. So an update from Steven Chas...
