Good Morning, Steve. Did you see our eagles this morning? WOW!

Costume Lady said...

I was trying to tell SISSY Good Morning, and my screen froze on me. Had to go "Round Robinhood's Barn" to get back on here;)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning Steve, thanks for the new thread.

For right now, things are settled for a minute and I am grateful. Wouldn't mind an uneventful day or two for sure. Tom has his hernia surgery next Tuesday. Hernias everywhere around here!! ☺

Costume Lady said...

TOM, TOO? Must be something in the water in Bluefield.

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Steven for the new thread.

BWO as stated on old thread and Sissy also said about the cam frozen and the floor of the nest has broken up!!!!!!

Sissy sorry Tom too has a hernia. You haven't had one have you?

wvgal_dana said...

On our "still cam" nest floor is brownish and leaves are different brown. Stick dark and white. On our "live feed" all is in like at nite and not much color. BUT I LOVE IT ANYWAY!!!!!! HAVE I SAID I LOVE THE LIVE FEED AND THE STILL CAM WORKING!!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I don't want to seem all gloom and doom, because I don't feel that way. This is just a bump in the road and things will settle down eventually. In the world of big deals, this ain't one.

I need ya'll to pray for us (again!!) today. 28 years ago today we lost our children in a fire in Falls Mills, VA along with a good friend and her daughter. It was the Thursday before Thanksgiving, just like today.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

The eagles are singing to use in Maine. I find such comfort in that sound. Wish we could see em!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Singing to us I mean.

Costume Lady said...

Oh, Sissy, I am so stunned that I don't know what to say. I didn't know...Prayers for you BIG TIME!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks so much Wanda. Yeah, it was a long time ago but still feels so fresh. One of those things that never happens to you, ya know. But, we have a good life now. Wish it had been different but IT IS WHAT IT IS. But on days like this, I just have to let myself remember and cry or laught or whatever.

Floralgirl said...

Wow, Sissy, I had no idea, so very sorry to hear that, you are a strong woman.. Much love sent to you:)

Costume Lady said...

Sissy, I lost a baby many years ago, but not in the way that you did. He would have been 28 years old last month. I never got to hold him in my arms and that makes a big difference, (it was a miscarrage). God Bless You.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Adam was 2-1/2 years old and Aaron was 8 months old when they died. Adam would be 30 now and Aaron 28, grown men. I am not trying to be morbid or anything like that, really I am not. But it is important to me that people know they were here, lived good lives, and were loved.

Costume Lady said...

Sometimes it helps to talk about it, Sissy. That is not MORBID. Thank you for sharing that with us.

Costume Lady said...

Gives us a whole new perspective on our own lives.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks Wanda, so much.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks Megan! You getting ready for Christmas?

Costume Lady said...

Megan is like a little hummingbird...here one minute, gone the next :)

Floralgirl said...

Well, morbid is never a word I would use to describe you Sissy... thanks for sharing your very personal thoughts today. I'm sure that Adam and Aaron would have grown up to be wonderful young men.
I am getting ready to walk outside, should start making wreaths today, now that I have a lot of greeens collected and cut up.

Costume Lady said...

I am not seeing our avatars, is anyone else having that problem?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

They are showing up here Wanda.

Floralgirl said...

Well, before I fly away...Here's the song stuck in my head this morning- Hallelujah
Wanda, sorry to hear of your loss, also, hugs to you(())

Costume Lady said...

I guess I need to shut down again and see if that helps. Something isn't right.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I put a pic of the boys on my pics thing, if ya'll want to see em.

Floralgirl said...

Wow- Sissy, they are so cute..
Here's news on Mason-Mason update

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

As loud as those birds are in Maine, you would think we would see some signs of life on the cam. I haven't seen anything there this morning, but I sure do hear em.

Costume Lady said...

I shut down my 'puter and now that I am back, I can see the avatars and two beautiful angels :) :)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Panda laying on his/her head. Can't tell who it is.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle in Maine!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Looks like breakfast.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Beautiful, on the branch now.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle gone at Maine.

Costume Lady said...

Had to shut down again. ????
I wonder where everyone is this morning? Sleepyheads:)

Costume Lady said...

Sissy, I did get to see Maine eagle, wish we had sound. Never satisfied are we? lol

Costume Lady said...

Customer coming for Grinch costume...BBL

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I know Wanda. We are the early birds this morning.

Floralgirl said...

GRINCH

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE....

Mits said...

Sissy....prayers for you and family today....I've had 5 miscarries....never forgot those little ones...will see them again someday:)

paula eagleholic said...

Sissy - Hugs and love to you and Tom. I know your boys would be fine young men!

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry I did a download and had to restart. Then I went to emails.

Sissy I am so sorry for your loss. Yes I did know. Sharon and me had spoke of it one time. I didn't know
their dates or names though. It is good that you have shared with us and talk about your Boys. I feel saddened and bless that you shared your sons pictures with us too. They are beautiful boys Bev. You know when the time comes you will see them again. For now they are shared with your Dad and Mom and others. Just have always had Sharon, You and YOUR FAMILY in prayers through ALL the DIFFENT THINGS YOU ALL HAVE BEEN THROUGH.
Plus have prayed for GOOD THINGS FOR YOU ALL for a long time now.

I also know the prayers for GOOD THINGS have been answered too.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks ya'll. Yeah, I wonder alot what kind of men they would be, would they be married, have children, etc.

Ceil said...

Good morning.
Sissy keeping you and Tom in my prayers today.
Sharon hope you have good news.
Wanda thank you for the special olympic pledge.
BBL

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

God has blessed us so with the opportunity to help raise Andrew and Mattie. They are just the best.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I love the sound of those eagles at Maine. Wish we could see more of them.

deb said...

Good morning, everyone.

Sissy, you and Tom have my prayers today. They are beautiful boys.

Wanda and Helen, hugs to you!

UPDATE FROM LISA....
11/20/08:
Technical Note -
We're having computer issues, which is affecting the image updating. We're working to fix it.

Also, Meadow -- the odd American osprey that migrated to Canada -- is on the move.

She's come down to Cleveland, Ohio, but she still has a long way to go to South America.

glo said...

Will just echo what Deb just said

Sissy, you and Tom have my prayers today. They are beautiful boys.

Wanda and Helen, hugs to you!


Loss is a hole filled with love. I find it easier to think of it that way in my own life.

I hope in the rough days that "He" sends you something beautiful to lighten your heart along the way.

movin said...


God bless you and your loved ones, Sissy. I'm sure they are all with Him and well cared for.

And while He's at it, maybe He can bless us all as well.

Mits said...

TU, GLO.....Just talked to Sharon, they are 51 miles from Charlottesville...appt at 11:20a.m.

wvgal_dana said...

You can see snow flurries blowing across our live feed at the nest. So pretty just don't amount to anything please.

Mits said...

Lun Update for Thursday...
Thursday, November 20
Lun Lun continues to enjoy outings to the dayroom. She has been getting access to the area for about 2-4 hours a day. Some days she ends up spending an hour or two eating her bamboo, whereas other days she only makes a short trip out to look around and then returns to the off exhibit dens. The cub does not seem to be bothered by Lun Lun’s time away. He is either content sleeping or scooting around working on his muscle development. These are two things a panda cub does best.

glo said...

Off to run lots and lots of errands that don't involve sightseeing with a TE...That will make sense if you read the For The Love of Eagles Blog under my name. Now I need Dog food, birdfood, and people food. LOL Its a priority thing.

Hope Sharons visit goes OK and has not been too hard on her. Saw she was hurting quite a lot yesterday.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I think Sharon is too hard on herself. Thinks she should be able to get up and around more than she is. She is doing really really good. I think if they take some of those drains out, it will help her alot. That can't feel good for sure.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

What will become of the BWO nest? It definitely looks like the nest fell through.

Mits said...

Sissy, I reminded her this a.m., that she had 2 major surgeries last Wednesday.....my drains were in for 3 weeks.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Right Mits. This ain't like getting a hang nail trimmed. This is some big stuff.

wvgal_dana said...

She MUST take it easy on herself...REST, TAKE IT EASY, TAKE IT SLOW....and more she would be telling someone else on the blog. That just had that surgery. God Love Her Heart..

wvgal_dana said...

Hay wait a minute....that's NOT a eagle on the branch on Maine cam??????????

Mits said...

I sure know that, Sissy.

wvgal_dana said...

He is just a "want to be eagle" lol

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Are ya'll hearing the sound that crow is making? I reckon that is a crow.

wvgal_dana said...

There are turkeys on the Harrison, Mi CAM

Mema Jo said...

Morning! Reading earlier blog and now the current one. All of you are such beautiful people - I feel honored to have you all for my friends. Thank you Beverly for sharing with us the sad part of your life - may we love & care for you even more. Adam & Aaron would have grown and made you and Tom so proud

wvgal_dana said...

Yep Sissy one of them crows was on the branch at Maine. That is why I said "he is a want to be eagle" lol

Mits said...

Mits said...

wvgal_dana said...

EAGLE ALERT !!!!

wvgal_dana said...

eagle ALERT !!! OUR NEST

wvgal_dana said...

HURRY EAGLE ALERT!!! OUR NEST!!!!!!!

Mits said...

UPDATE FROM MOOSE CAM FROM POOK........ lone cow joined Primo last week. So you may be seeing her in the webcam.


Most of the snow from the first storm has now melted. The prediction is sunny for the next 10 days which means the moose won’t be sitting in my yard during the day. They go find shade on the north side of a tree or better yet the woods. So you’ll only see them when they come to feed, generally early morning 7-9 am and afternoon 3-5 pm give or take.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle in our nest!!!

wvgal_dana said...

HURRAY EAGLE STILL IN OUR NEST!!!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

This live feed is a little choppier than our other one, isn't it?

Red said...

Eagle alert our nest

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle alert our nest!!

hedgie said...

Morning, y'all!
Sissy, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and Tom today and always. What a sad loss to bear. Adam and Aaron WOULD be wonderful young men, you can be sure...look at their parents! Thank you for sharing with us. We love you.
Wanda and Helen, I also had a miscarriage...37 yrs. ago last month.
I wonder if the Robinhoods Red Barn phrase came from PA? We always said it growing up, but folks here act like they've never heard it....my maternal great-grandmother came from PA....will have to ask my mom if it was something she always said!

wvgal_dana said...

I'll still take it Sissy love it moving it around !!!!

Red I see your on to watch ...wish Jo and Wanda were here...Lynn, Margy others EAGLE ALERT!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Yes it is choppy...wish were a little more smooth...

paula eagleholic said...

Tit for Tat, I guess.

hedgie said...

Blogger cop is alive and well....does anyone else have problems when you first "log on" to the blog with it not accepting your password once or twice??

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Both there.

Red said...

Both there now!!!!

wvgal_dana said...

My fingers were getting tired now if Jo and Wanda, Deb and Lolly would get here.

hedgie said...

Sissy, is Tom having his surgery in Bluefield? I imagine it will be outpatient, right?

paula eagleholic said...

WE have a pair!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Is there a way to record on this one like Real Player?

Mits said...

Funny to watch the slo-mo

hedgie said...

Bev, the boys are beautiful!
Helen, is there anyway to make a donation specifically in Maggie's honor?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Aren't they absolutely breathtaking!!!

Costume Lady said...

Mits said...

wvgal_dana said...

Lynn why can't you get the live cam?

paula eagleholic said...

Lynn, can you get the snowman cam?

wvgal_dana said...

LIVE CAM

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

You would think doctors would want you to understand their dictation wouldn't you? Some of these guys I type just mumble and grumble.

paula eagleholic said...

Try copy and paste

http://www.fws.gov/nctc/cam/livevideo.html

wvgal_dana said...

TRY THAT BLUE LINK I JUST PUT UP HOPE IT WORKS LYNN

Red said...

I just switched the quality from High to Low and I believe the picture is better on Low.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

What I wouldn't give to be there watching them live and in person!!!

hedgie said...

Yes, I can get snowman cam. Every link I use to our live feed is just blank...if I click on live feed, nothing happens....had it a couple of days ago okay...guess I'll try to reboot puter....

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I tried that too, Red, but mine is still choppy. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for it, but it is just a little more choppy than the other one we had.

Costume Lady said...

The wind is fierce here...I was outside when Dana called, getting the Journal and the wind just about blew me away.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD pict. now.

Red said...

Hedgie, you might need to install or reinstall Adobe Flash Player.

Costume Lady said...

My still cam is stuck on 12:13, anyone else?

Mits said...

no difference here on high, medium or low...same quality pic

Costume Lady said...

WHERE ARE YOU LYNN...Try that blue link that Dana put on. She must have gotten lost in Cyberspace.

Mits said...

my still says 12:29p.m.

deb said...

I made it in time to see the two eagles!!

Costume Lady said...

Hooray, Deb!

Lolly said...

OMG I went to the still cam and was thinking it was a picture that had been posted.....then I thought NO! That is a current picture!!!!! Wow! Wow! Wow!

Watching the live video....wish I was there!

Mema Jo said...

Wanda my time is ok on the still cam
It is still 16 min ahead of reg time on my computer
Hit the F5 refresh once

paula eagleholic said...

The snowman cam is choppy as well....

paula eagleholic said...

Yay, the gang is just about all here!

Lolly said...

Are they not beautiful?!!!! Is that Belle in front?

Mema Jo said...

Great that you can also zoom in & Out and move pic around on the
POP UP

Mema Jo said...

Yes Lolly - Ladies always up front

Floralgirl said...

Well, that is too cool! Both in nest for a while now, huh.. was making a sandwich.. hard to walk away but I must go back to work- enjoy the view y'all!!

Lolly said...

Yay! For me!! I could tell them apart for the first time. Yay! LOL

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Wow, they sure are hanging out for a while, aren't they!!

Good morning Deb. Glad you made it in time. Morning Lolly and anybody else I missed. So good to "see" you all this morning.

Lolly said...

Paula and Deb...thinking about our 1 1/2 hours in the cold watching them. Paula....my little eagle is sitting right here by the puter! ☺

Costume Lady said...

Jo, my still cam is OK, now...just temporary insanity ;)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Sharon is on the phone. Changed her antibiotic, left all the drains in. She has go back next Wednesday. Changed her pain meds, cut down on them. Said she was doing good.

deb said...

I was coming in to tell you that I had a red-bellied woodpecker just now. I am sure glad I had to report on it,

Lolly said...

Morning Sissy! I have read a little on this mornings blog. My prayers are with you today. You are a very strong person. Thank you for sharing...hopefully sharing helps. Bless you!

Mits said...

didn't think the drains would come out this soon:(

Costume Lady said...

MAAAARRRRRGYYY...I'M HOLLERING AT YOU....PAIR OF EAGLES IN OUR NEST..HURRY!!

hedgie said...

Okay, that worked!!

Lolly said...

Deb, red-bellied woodpeckers are common at my feeder. I have never seen a pileated woodpecker. (Sp?) I want to sooo badly!

paula eagleholic said...

Yay, Hedgie!

Lolly - we were there for awhile, weren't we! ♥ ☺ ♥

Red said...

Mits, I think you are right. Quality is same in all three positions. I think it was just a coincidence the first time I changed it.

Lolly said...

Anyone have Margy's telephone # ?

paula eagleholic said...

Glad Sharon got a good report!

hedgie said...

I'm not surprised they didn't take out drains since Sharon said she was still draining. Changing antibiotics probably means that there is some infection which could account for the more severe pain she's been having.

paula eagleholic said...

I think the best quality is when you hit "show all"...for me it makes the pic slightly smaller, and the best quality. But it doesn't stop the choppines.

hedgie said...

Gotta go get some work done....drat--sun is out--can't clean sunroom windows in the sun!!!

Mits said...

they changed antibiotics because the ones she was on made her sick when she ate anything:(

deb said...

I haven't either, Lolly. The first red-bellied I saw was at NCTC and now I have seen 2 more since then. Megan showed it to me.

Mema Jo said...

Nor sure of Margy's plans for today.
Just take pics and email to her.

Mits said...

how do you take pics on the live feed , Jo?

Mema Jo said...

Paula - I can't see your avatar...

Red said...

Jim is missing too.

Lolly said...

Jo, Paula's avatar is there. You are having computer problems.

Mema Jo said...

I can't take pics on LIVE FEED
I have the still cam up and the Pop Up on. Pics from the Still Cam is how I do it .

Paula and Deb - can you get video clips from the Live Feed?

magpie said...

I have been found! Thanks WANDA -
they are like two peas in a pod..

Eye Candy !! ♥ ♥

Thanks, Wanda, that's the kind of phone call I like to get ! ♥

Mits said...

ok, forgot about the still cam;)

deb said...

Yes, I can get video, did a small clip to see if it worked, but they are just standing there. The sad thing is we can't rewind anymore. :(

magpie said...

And I just heard Eagles at Maine....
Some day we will hear them at NCTC - I just know it ! ☺ ☺

paula eagleholic said...

Yes, I can video them.

I miss the rewind also!

paula eagleholic said...

So, If you don't see it live, you've missed it!

Lolly said...

Yay Margy! So happy you made it!

paula eagleholic said...

Unless someone else recorded it!

paula eagleholic said...

I think Jim is stuck in email land...

Lolly said...

Thye have been there an hour! Can not get anything accomplished this way.

paula eagleholic said...

30 second cam is ahead of the live feed for me.

Mits said...

pic is so much clearer when the sun goes in

paula eagleholic said...

30 second cam is ahead of the live feed for me.

magpie said...

Hen Party in Pennsylvania...just like on here! ( Sorry, RED....♥)

magpie said...

Lolly :
I am like you...can pretty much only tell which bird is which, when they are together like this...xoxo

Mits said...

I can't get the 30 second page anymore....pops up and says page is not available

Mema Jo said...

Question? you don't think we are watching a rerun on our cam - do you?

Lolly said...

Paula, enjoyed the story of the swimming eagle. Ahhhh! Water therapy!

Mits said...

ah, was starting to think so too, Jo

deb said...

I was wondering the same thing Jo,

Lolly said...

No, surely not!

magpie said...

Just wonder what Liberty and Belle are thinking about up there on top of the world....

deb said...

I have a couple of pictures and I am waiting to see it they repeat.

paula eagleholic said...

No, I don't think so...think they are just relaxing.

magpie said...

Sissy - We're here for you, all day long, every day....... and for all those with loss and sadness to bear...

♥ ♥ ♥

deb said...

The picture from 12:43 doesn't repeat, but I think the later ones do.

magpie said...

Weren't Suzanne's Pics of the Finland Sea Eagles Greaaaatt! Sure was nice to see those feathers in that snowy nest this morning again...

Lolly said...

Okay, Wanda. You are going to have to run out to the nest and check on this. Only kidding!!☺

magpie said...

Eeewwieee in the hole at BWO

magpie said...

Was....

paula eagleholic said...

In the hole? Margy

Glad BWO is working

magpie said...

Belle and Liberty might as well just mate while they are there....♥

deb said...

I think Paula is right, a lot of similar poses but none of my pictures match. Now we know we aren't in a loop.

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...
