Monday

New thread.

Work on the cam this morning. The system is not powered fully, so I don't think the cam will make it to the web right now.

We'll take some pictures and post them.

movin said...

The Hummingbird chicks are getting bigger and bigger and sitting much higher in the nest. Their beaks are much longer and rapier like....

On the other hand they don't seem "as active" as they usually do just before fledging...

movin said...

mORNING, Norma.

Aren't the Cowboys your team? How are you feeling?

I usually root for the SD Chargers when I'm in to football, but I don't think they are doing terrifically yet this season.

Mema Jo said...

paula eagleholic said...

I refreshed and have sound

Mema Jo said...

Static HUMMMMMMMMMMM is on

Mits said...

YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Man in the tree!

Red said...

Hum is caused by bad or no ground on microphone.

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for clearing out spidey!!

Mits said...

Cleaned away the web....no spider:)

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' PAULA--& MEMA JO!!----Lots of birds this am---sign we may get some snow!!---Will check for sound!

Red said...

paula eagleholic said...

Hey, it's Nu!!

Hi Nu!!

Mits said...

I remember this guy from last year.

Mits said...

that's right, Nu:)

Mema Jo said...

I saw the barn

paula eagleholic said...

Upside down!


There's the barn!

paula eagleholic said...

Kewl!!

Red said...

Oh My. That could make a person dizzy. lol

Mits said...

Nu, should have put a smiley face on his jacket

Mema Jo said...

I hope Wanda gets there soon & tells Nu when he has the right angle.......

paula eagleholic said...

Theres the tree truck!

sound gone again...

Mema Jo said...

Bucket truck - hope he doesn't have to jump down into it!!! lol

Mits said...

this is more fun then being there

Mits said...

sure they have contact with Steve on where to place it

paula eagleholic said...

Did Wanda really run out there?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Now THAT is a strange bird for sure!!

paula eagleholic said...

My sound keeps coming and going!

Mits said...

hope she took her camera, although Steve had great pics from last year

floralgirl said...

Oh, cool! but it's making me seasick....

Red said...

Refresh usually gets sound back.

Mits said...

someone just told him where to put the cam...

Mits said...

like a ride at Disney.

Mema Jo said...

Whoa! and around and around and around and around........


Susan and family are approaching the company barricks to head to the field to see those white buses bring in the troops!! Whoo Hoo
We'll get a call from SSG Ryan later!

paula eagleholic said...

Hmmm wonder if they are going for a totally new view??

Mits said...

great news, Jo, she must be so excited...is his girlfriend going to be there?

Mema Jo said...

Don't know if Wanda really did go...
BUT she sure hasn't been on this
blog for a long time....

Mits said...

lol...Nu, be careful with that cam:)

Mema Jo said...

Mits - Mom Dad Sister Brother & yes
Girlfriend are all there.........

As an after thought Mits...maybe we should have gone to NCTC today!

normabyrd said...

15 min. -- "CC" NAME

He is sound asleep!!---

Mits said...

someone is talking about the momsters, think they are going to ask us what we think..must be Steve on the line too

floralgirl said...

That is great news, Jo:)
this is fun to watch, gotta get back to work though...

Mema Jo said...

Oh My Goodness
Forgot to mention about getting some
turtle shells......

Mits said...

yes Jo, but then today is Immaculate Conception, and was going to mass, but now I have to go to the 7 0'clock one tonight

normabyrd said...

GREAT NEWS JO!!!!!!!!!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Getting alot of freezing up now on the live feed

Mits said...

that is right,,,turtle shells:)

Mema Jo said...

Sure have noon position
but we have lost 6 o'clock

Mits said...

not sure I like this particular view.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Mits!
we will go to 7:30 tonight

Mits said...

I was going to the noon mass, but don't want to leave now:)

Mits said...

no no NU!

Mits said...

someone just told Nu we are missing part of the nest

paula eagleholic said...

Def needs more adjustment

paula eagleholic said...

Wish the daggone sound would stay on...

paula eagleholic said...

Yea, like missing half the nest!

Mits said...

lol...yes, Paula, they are trying to get that across to Nu now:)

Mits said...

Red, to bad you are not there to give them some instructions:)

Red said...

Need remote control positioning.

Mits said...

might have been Steve talking then, telling him a bit to the left and down some...Nu said 10-4, and chuckled

paula eagleholic said...

And it's pointing towards the east now....

Steve Chase said...

How does that angle look folks??

Mits said...

yes, that would be helpful, but it is what it is:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I was just thinking that I am sure he is talking to Steve and Steve is watching on the TV at the main building. Probably saying he better get it right for us!!

Mits said...

no Nu, not there yet:(

Mema Jo said...

There is that red handled hammer

Mema Jo said...

Not sure that Lib & Belle are going
to like all this refurbishing......

Mema Jo said...

Not Good

Mits said...

not there yet, Steve

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Much ado about that little bitty bear and he is oblivious to all of it. You would think he would be at the naming ceremony.

Mema Jo said...

Keep getting the message
"Conflicting Edits"

I hear Steve loud & clear

paula eagleholic said...

Can you get anymore of the nest at 6ish??

glo said...

Centering is awesome. Doesn't seem to be able to get it down more towards 6 but we will definitely see the approach and take off everywhere else really well.

Mits said...

think Nu is praying:)

Mema Jo said...

I am confused looking at the nest
Is the old 12 o'clock on the left hand side now?

Mits said...

someone said they think it is good like that

glo said...

even looks like we are pulling in color now cool

Mits said...

would like more nest, less ground coverage:)

Mema Jo said...

SISSY - I think I remember that they have the ceremony and then come in
to see Luney and tell him about his
new name........ Maybe someone else
will remember..

Steve Chase said...

the camera was lowered a little, but is on the same limb, so 12 oclock is the same as before.

Steve Chase said...

the camera was lowered a little, but is on the same limb, so 12 oclock is the same as before.

paula eagleholic said...

Not very much color...look at the still pic

glo said...

Golly MeMa Jo if they change where 12 o clock is we are all going to need new watches.

Mits said...

I kinda liked the earlier horizontal view, with nest and sky view

glo said...

remember we can zoom in and out. You will see the nest as xlosely as you want to while they are little hatching etc etc.

Mema Jo said...

PANDA UPDATE from home page

Cub's Name Will be Announced Soon

paula eagleholic said...

It's fairly close, Steve...skewed to the left side of the nest more....

glo said...

Thanks Steve and everyone who has helped. Did you leave a piece of salmon up there as a Christmas gift for Lib and Belle.

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like Nu is gone...

Will get a good view of some fly ins....

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I don't like that view, ya'll?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
paula eagleholic said...

I would say that where 11 was is now noon....

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I am repeating myself, getting conflicting edits, etc. Definitely need a little more 6 o'clock of the nest.

Mits said...

Thanks, Steve and Nu:)

Mits said...

HIS NAME IS:


Xi Lan (shee-lahn) "Atlanta's joy" Zoo Atlanta Board of Directors

Cute, as is he!

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Steve & Glo for getting me
on the right 12 o'clock

Now need to see the tenants fly in

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks Steve and Nu

paula eagleholic said...

Can't quite see all of the launch pad...

Mits said...

That was a report from Suzanne, about cubs new name

paula eagleholic said...

Yuck, don't care for that name for luney

paula eagleholic said...

XL or AJ for short....

paula eagleholic said...

Now, if they could fix the sound....

Mits said...

I prefer the Chinese names, more traditional.

Red said...

I think 12 O'clock is still 12 o'clock. Cam has been tilted up a little so you can now see Lib when he's at 12 O'clock position. Could be more to the right but I think Its just fine now. Thanks Steve and crew.

paula eagleholic said...

That sure was cool getting to watch all that this morning....

Mits said...

Suzanne said they same about the launching pad.

Mema Jo said...

New Name is UP for Luney

Xi Lan

Mits said...

said it reminded her of the 2006 position

Mema Jo said...


Link to AJC.COM Panda Name

Mits said...

yes, Paula...XL:)

Mits said...

wonder what L&B will do when they come visit?

Mits said...

think all the other stuff will fall into place, when the stuff Steve talked about last week come in>:)

Mits said...

I really enjoyed watching it!!!! Was more fun then being there:) And alot warmer:), sitting here drinking coffee:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Very good, great name!! I didn't vote for that one but it is still a great name. What a doll baby!!!

paula eagleholic said...

I see the nest as this....the branches that were at 10 and 2 on the nest are now at noon and 3....

Costume Lady said...

We just go back from the nest site. It was a little difficult to get in. The guard called Steve and he said it would be OK. Chatted with Steve a bit at the tree and he said there were some amazing pictures on the web site. I have posted a few photos that we took on ..WILD AND WONDERFUL....Such fun that was!!

Mits said...

glad you made it Wanda, we had a ton of fun watching Nu:)

paula eagleholic said...

Amazing pictures on what website Wanda????

Mits said...

Great pics, Wanda, did you get to go to the barn?

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for the pictures, Wanda!

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for being there, Wanda & Gene!
Love the pictures.

The sunset pics - it's the first I looked at them.... The 1st 2 are
really winners!!!

I'm not sure Santa heard you
We'll try to spread the word to your Santa!

Mema Jo said...

Lib is not going to hide from us ever again!!!!
I love the Zoom feature!

Thanks Steve, Nu and everyone out there at the Sycamore Tree this
morning!

paula eagleholic said...

Eewwiie at BWO

Costume Lady said...

We had to park on the hard top road, where we parked the Eagle Express, I guess for saftey's sake.
Steve asked if we had seen the awesome photos on the web site...didn't say which one??.
Helen, thanks for the heads up on the tree workers being there. We flew out the door and prayed all the way that they would let us in:)
It was sooo fun to watch.

Mits said...

could not think of anyone better than you and Gene to represent us at the tree:)

Costume Lady said...

Speaking of EEEWWWIIEES...there was a whole FLOCK? of them just a short distance from NCTC...posted on WILD AND WONDERFUL. They were dining on a deer on the side of the road, which I deleted.

Mema Jo said...

Mema Jo said...

paula eagleholic said...

Well, so it was....there he is!!

Mema Jo said...

Mits said...
