Merry Christmas TO All Of You In Eagleland! Thank you Steve and may your family be blessed today and the rest of the new year!
Hello all you Early Birds! You really got treated this morning with loving visits!
Just putting my cinnamon rolls in the oven!

deb said...

Good morning and Merry Christmas to everyone! Two visits already, the start of a wonderful day.

deb said...

A little story about some friends of mine that was on the news this morning:

Stacy, Brian and Hunter remember Bailey

sometimes you have to hit pause, then play again to see the video.

deb said...

There is a bunny rabbit at the Burrowing owl hole. I wondered if the owls had gone south for the winter!

Mema Jo said...

I missed the bunny but I guess that is what has been making the tracks. They have videos of the owl in the snow - I think they are still there. Hope we soon get to see one!

deb said...

It is still there, Jo, it comes and goes. It is hard to tell, but it seems like it comes out of the hole in the ground.

Mema Jo said...

Deb - love those kind of stories!
Takes special people to do those things for others!

Mema Jo said...

I'll keep looking for it.....

Mits said...

family will be here soon...just stopping by to say...HI:)

Mema Jo said...

Enjoy, Helen!

I just finished eating warm cinnamon roll.... More family coming around noon......

Mema Jo said...

There's some interesting action at the Panda den in Atlanta, and there's a mature eagle at BWE.

Haven't read blogs, so forgive any repetitions, please.

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning JIM !

Merry Christmas to you!

floralgirl said...

Merry Christmas Jo and Jim:)

Mema Jo said...

Luney is really concentrating on moving on all fours........

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning Megan!

Family coming for lunch

movin said...

Morning, Megan, Mits, Mema Jo and Deb...

I think we dodged a bullet in So Cal. There was a big advisory on the Weather Channel last night about heavy rains last night and today; but we only had light rains in the night, the advisory is gone and I'm not sure how much more light rain we'll get........ [:~D]

My trip to San Diego's northern County should be much easier. But I was thinking of one year in the 80's when I would have been better off with a gondola than with the TR4-A convertible I had.

The convertible did well though, although I had to slow down and drive in a lower gear to limit wheels slipping in the deep water on the freeway...also the wipers were having trouble handling it.

This year should be a lark.

deb said...

Good to hear the bad weather missed you, Jim. My niece is trying to go to Chicago this morning, wonder if she will make it. Her finance is best man in a wedding tomorrow.

hedgie said...

Merry Christmas to everyone...short break from the bustle to give this present to you all...also will send it via momsters e-mail!!

Good Tidings of Great Joy

Enjoy. It is indeed beautiful. This is really my favorite Christmas song--should have heard my Grams sing it in her opera-trained voice!

deb said...

Just talked to my sister and my niece is going to Indianapolis first, then Chicago next week. They are on the plane, so they should be okay.

deb said...

Nice song, thanks, Lynn.

movin said...

Xi Lan is walking-crawling-walking right now.

Merry Christmas from me too, to EVERYONE! People and pets, flora and fauna!

Just passing through...saw the Santa wonder at the grandson's this morning, now on to the cemeteries to place some decorations, then to help elderly lady neighbor have some Christmas at the hospital...

So Glad to see our Eagles put on a Christmas show this morning!

And so glad, to see that Paula's Mother is doing better, and that Ceil, Jim and Mary Margaret landed at John's Roost !

Best of my loving wishes to All:

magpie said...

Two beautiful Christmas Eagles at Maine Nest....

magpie said...

Now, only one beauty there.

Have good time, Deb - hope the wildlife is plentiful!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Merry Christmas everyone. Hope ya'll are having a great day. We have eaten until we are miserable and now I am working. Doctors doze but never close!! Luney is justa snoozing now. We watched him and Lun loving it up a while ago. So very, very precious. Santa brought Mattie the WowWee Panda. I am so jealous. Looks just like Luney!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She said she will let me play with him some, though, so I am happy.

wvgal_dana said...

Merry Christmas All On Here and to those that are someplace else !!

Christmas Blessings and Dinner's and Diner's Delights..

Our Christmas Dinner in the oven...smells good.

I have to share because I just would never have thought hubby would get me this. I got a stuffed and so very soft mature eagle. ( :
I have registered him and all. Now that was a real SURPRISE !!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Two eagles in the nest, working hard.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

There went Belle. She was here for just a quick visit. Lib still hanging out.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

There went Lib!! Nice visit. Merry Christmas.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Beverly for putting the pic up!
I missed them & was really happy to see them!

Mema Jo said...

Herd of deer in PA woods

Mema Jo said...

Check out the 'bird' in the Caltrans eagle nest - it is eating - I don't see a white head or white tail....

Mema Jo said...

The bird I am watching in the Caltrans eagle's nest is as large as an eagle and totally brown - no white splotches at all. It has a small head.
Trying to enlarge pic with the CTRL & mouse scroll bar but it's not working

Still chowing down!

Mema Jo said...

It's a CA eewwiiieeeeeeee!

Mema Jo said...

Out of the nest up on the limb
Poop Shoot
POOF ! Down over the bridge!

wvgal_dana said...

Jo I HAVE SENT YOU SEVERAL CHRISTMAS CARDS. HAVE YOU GOTTEN ANY OF THEM???

Mema Jo said...

Dana I don't think I have received them.

IrisF said...

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

and thank you for the Christmas Visit picture. I keep missing them!

paula eagleholic said...

Merry Christmas, Again!

Dana, so cool about the stuffed eagle...is it a webkinz?

John, Ajay and Gkids have come and gone...waiting on youngest to get off work, so we can have dinner together. My brother is still here also...

Gonna have a nice rib roast for dinner...talked to Mom...she doing good today.

IrisF said...

Dana, can you post a photo of your very special "soft" eagle??? What a great hubby you have!!! I would love to see it!

Paula, I'm glad to hear your Mom is doing better! That's a great Christmas gift in itself!

Mits said...

wow...what a long day...hope everyone had a good one....we did:)

Mits said...

Christmas racoons at PA

wvgal_dana said...

Paula yes it is a Webkinz. I'm a kid again lol

deb said...

I had a very quiet Christmas since my sister had to work. We will do Christmas next week on New Years. When you have family that works in a hospital, you just have to adjust. I went to the river and watched the eagles. My pictures are loaded. I used Flickr this time. I will see if it is any better than Picassa.

deb said...

I've seen those Webkinz, they are cute!

magpie said...

Wow Deb - Love the new pictures. The Meadowlarks in the Snow! Fabulous, and those Eagles soaring and roosting, breathtaking.
Get This: My code to post comment was "bless" - how cool is that!

xoxo

Hello Everyone...Christmas is not over yet....☺

magpie said...

But it is probably time to say Good Merry Night to some heading for the pillows, and whisper in the ears of those already there....

Sure hope it was the day of everyone's dreams....

I'm cruising around some sites, will be back before the final Good Night..xoxo ♥

magpie said...

I saw a beautiful red-tailed hawk soaring in Morgan County this morning.
Sure would like to see an Eagle spend the night at OUR NEST again.

magpie said...

There is a deer, I think, at the Snowman Cam....the site it almost totally obliterated with Snow !

magpie said...

Check out RDHC - some one big and around made a visit to the cam, cute !

Mema Jo said...

I'm calling it a very merry Christmas day.........

Good Night Everyone
Peace to you & yours
Prayers for all needs being said

(((hugs))) ♥

magpie said...

Iss is done for 2008...:(

And remember, Tomorrow is Friday....
Got some red to wear? Great time of the year for that...

magpie said...

Nighty night Jo, hope you got some Christmas PJ's to keep the spirit bright!

magpie said...

Something is lurking at Pix PA - keep seeing some glowing eyes near the tree that looks like the owl...then it disappears....

deb said...

I am all done with my CBC list for today. Sunday is the official count day. I think the meadowlarks might be unusual as they aren't even on the list. I sent the picture to Roger, he is in charge of the count.

deb said...

Margy, can I get the RHDC link? I deleted it for some reason.

One deer at Snowman Cam.

deb said...

I am off to bed, headed to Sioux Falls tomorrow. I found RDHC, I googled it!

paula eagleholic said...

Deb - Thank goodness for the Dr's and nurses who work in the hospital on holidays...we thanked them yesterday and today for working...

paula eagleholic said...

I have had a wonderful Christmas Day...son and GF just left...time to hit the hay...have to work tomorrow...see ya'll then!

Hugs to all. ♥

magpie said...

Good Night Everyone, Paula, Deb, and all the late night folks.

Glad you found RDHC Deb, sorry, I was over on Yahoo emails...didn't see your question..

Paula, so glad to hear it was a good day.


Love, Peace and Prayers, xo ♥

floralgirl said...

Wow- long day- was just checking for Mason news before I head to bed- and found some-


We are up here in PA with Melissa and Bridget, sharing Christmas today with Mason. Brian, the nurse got a nod from Mason> A yes nod. Thats big, so mom and dad can communicate with him. Mason received some great tshirts and hand made items from Melissa and a nice quilted cover from Granma. Melissa'a portable umbrella christmas tree is set up in his room. That Merry Christmas peace sign is all Mason by the way, we are just holding the blanket for background.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

Love and Peace from Paoli

wvgal_dana said...

I hear geese off in the distance.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning To Anyone and Everyone Coming in this morning.

Hope your Christmas Day was beautiful, fun, peaceful, loving, and sharing. Of course some good food too.

Paula I'm so happy your Mother is starting her recovery process. What a BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS that had to be!!!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle at BWO already this morning.

wvgal_dana said...

Our eagle just flew in !!!!

wvgal_dana said...

ALERT EAGLE IN OUR NEST !!!

wvgal_dana said...

Picking at pieces of nesting materials.

wvgal_dana said...

Trying the egg cup.

wvgal_dana said...

Now a fly in two in nest !!

wvgal_dana said...

EAGLE ALERT !@!!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Alittle beaking

carolinabeachmom said...

Good Friday morning to you DANA! What a wonderful pic to look at so early in the morning.

wvgal_dana said...

Belle moving a big stick.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning CANDY !!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning ladies. We have company and they are beautiful this morning (of course).

wvgal_dana said...

Candy isn't this just wonderful and with sound.

wvgal_dana said...

Darn a gunshot....One is sitting in the egg cup....now some more beaking.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Sissy and yes we do..

carolinabeachmom said...

Yes DANA. I am so glad for any chance to see them. They beak a little, tidy up here and there in the nest a little. Can't wait until they bring breakfast in with them and stay awhile.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning Sissy and Megan. I came on so fast that I didn't see others on besides DANA.

carolinabeachmom said...

Is this their first visit this morning? We had two visits yesterday morning. Maybe this will one big looooonnnngggg visit. Whatever, just so excited to be watching them. I would be in school right now amd missing it all.

wvgal_dana said...

Oh did you all hear that !!!! They are talking !!

carolinabeachmom said...

Steve and NCTC have reallly done a wonderful job of getting us a wonderful live front seat for the new season.

carolinabeachmom said...

DANA Never knew they made that little sound when they are beaking either. I think Lib is telling Belle to go off and get some breakfast for them. :)

carolinabeachmom said...

The zoom in is just incredible when you can see them up as close as you can.

wvgal_dana said...

I thought we were going to have some mating that time.

carolinabeachmom said...

DANA I couldn't believe it when I saw it yesterday. I thought it was too soon, but then I guess love is always and everlasting. :)

Megan, that was good news about Mason and thanks for sharing. God works wonders, even if it is a little at a time.

Was also so happy for Paula when I read that her mom is doing much better. It sounds like she has finally turned the corner and will soon be herself again.

carolinabeachmom said...

There goes Liberty

carolinabeachmom said...

And Belle Must have gotten hungry.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Gone!! Great visit this morning.

wvgal_dana said...

Now Belle just left...nice long visit. First of the morning.

carolinabeachmom said...

Hope they will come back soon again this am.

carolinabeachmom said...

That was a nice long visit. They are just the most beautiful birds.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Back again for more nestorations.

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle back with branch !!

carolinabeachmom said...

BACK with a new stick for the nest.

wvgal_dana said...

CANDY COME BACK IN !!

wvgal_dana said...

Good you both are here ( :

carolinabeachmom said...

This is great. Really getting it into the right place. Oops, guess that wasn't it. It is something watching them getting the nest set up just so.

carolinabeachmom said...

That looks big enouth to be Belle. What do you think?

wvgal_dana said...

And gone again.....

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh dear; gone for another piece of the nest material.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I hear some geese flying over at our nest.

carolinabeachmom said...

Wow that was a huge flock of geese or whatever flying over the nest. Wonder if they were going north or south. Probably north. :(

NatureNut said...

HO, HO, HO! Hope Everyone had a nice Xmas!
Bob has some Kitty Xmas oics up on PBase. Looks like our house. When we went to son's for family dinner on Xmas, we locked our little fiber optic tree in a room. No decorations except top star so they can't hurt it, but older cat wants to eat the needles!She likes to eat thin ribbons too!
See I missed our birds' visit, but since they seem to be visiting after noon, maybe I'll see them at work.
