EAGLE BWE

Mits said...

EAGLE BWO TOO.

Mits said...

FROM LISA...UPDATE Nest Update for BWE page

12/29/08:
We've seen a good bit of mating activity on the Osprey Cam. Since it's too early for eggs, this activity is a form of bonding.

Oddly enough, we rarely see mating on the Eagle Cam nest itself; however, they may be doing it on the branches of the tree.

Mits said...

and Lisa's update on BWO page....


Nest Update

12/29/08:
Last Sunday, we caught sight of an American kestrel on the nest.

American kestrels are the smallest falcons found in North America.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks Mits!! Morning all!! Panda butt scratching at NZ.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good Monday morning Helen, Bev, Hedgie and Glo. Thanks for the heads up Helen. I have been back and forth lurking to see if the cam was up yet, while doing other things this am. So I guess it is on to the BWE and BWO cams for awhile.

Well I survived the Christmas celebrations, all the food and all the storms. Just wanted y'all to know I'm still lurking. Santa was good. I've been reading a book all weekend. An autobiography written by Randy Owen, the lead singer for the gouup "ALABAMA" Very interesting to me as we grew up on different mountains together. lol I'm a few years ahead of him too.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning RED and NORMA. Hey NORMA, the best team won! Congratulations! :)

HELEN, I am having trouble getting int the CC eagle cam this year. Could you give me a boost, please? :)

normabyrd said...

SISSY!!---Get your GLASSES cleaned!!----We will only have 3 more days to watch 'PRINCE XI'!!!!!!

carolinabeachmom said...

It looks like a beautiful day at the Maine nest; sun shining, blue skies, etc. It is 52 here with drizzle so far today. Good day to stay in and read a book like RED.

Mits said...

turkeys PA

carolinabeachmom said...

Turkeys are in Pa. woods. They survived both Thanksgiving and Christmas! :)

I wish our nest would open up. It keeps sounding like there is an eagle doing nestorations.

Mits said...

Candy just sent you the link..

normabyrd said...

HEY CANDY!!----I know you are a BASKETBALL person-----& your TAR HEELS always WIN--BIG TIME!!!----I was wanting PAT WHITE to do well!!!---Remember WVU has been having a lousily time---Coach leaving, etc.--Thanks!---you are COOL!!!----(now that DALLAS game)

carolinabeachmom said...

Thanks Helen.

normabyrd said...

HELEN---Have you heard from CEIL?-----Any changes?

carolinabeachmom said...

NORMA I was happy for Pat White too. It was a wonderful way for him to finish his career at WVU. He has to be one thrilled guy.

Mits said...

They are still in Oregon, will be leaving this Saturday to come back home...

normabyrd said...

CANDY---Thanks---I think he may go pro---He is a good kid!!---

carolinabeachmom said...

NORMA He'd be crazy not to turn pro. He can use his education later after making millions in pro ball.

Pete's Pond finally has a cam that keeps the pic coming. Don't see any animals there yet tho.

normabyrd said...

HELEN---I bet you have missed them!
You haven't told us about Christmas with M&M!---I bet it was AWESOME!!---both walking!! ho!

magpie said...

Good Morning Egle ♀ and ♂ Buds !

Nice animated avatar, Red, glad to see you back on here.

Wonderful to see the turkeys again at PIX pa - it has been awhile.

Suzanne caught a brief glimpse of the two Sea Eagles at Finney's Water Nest earlier this morning...almost dark there now.

Norma: Loved your comment about OUR BIRDS pulling the blind down for some privacy! We sure oogled (I guess that is a word) them a bunch over the last few days.

Good to "See" everyone...

Mema Jo said...

WOW Did one of our turkey gobblers get loose and go to the snowman cam?

carolinabeachmom said...

Looks like a flock of Pea Hens? at Pete's Pond now getting drinks of water or whatever.

Turkeys still in Pa. Woods.

magpie said...

Okay, who woke the Blogger Cop up?

Just saw a female pheasant at one of the Scottish sites, and was watching a squirrel earlier on one of the tube feeders completely embracing it, trying to suck the feed out of the feeder I guess.

magpie said...

Awesome sunset at Finneys

normabyrd said...

The FLAMINGOS are sunning --- some are in the water & the ducks are watching!!

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning Everyone!


The burrowing owl cam is frozen from yesterday... At least we get to see him.

Mits said...

yes, Jo had read there chat this a.m. about their turkey:)

carolinabeachmom said...

Gppd morning MARGY AND JO. Do you suppose that it is a lone turkey at the snowman cam or could it be a grouse or something?

magpie said...

Glo is like the energizer bunny! She keeps going, and going, and going....

Glad to hear you are on the mend, Glo......so I guess we won't hear any narrative on any videos if you make them this morning, huh>

xoxo Time to start the ball rolling here....would rather stay and play....

carolinabeachmom said...

There it goes. Now we'll never know.

carolinabeachmom said...

Ok Helen, so you saw where they had a turkey. My parents used to have a flock of turkeys that came through their yard up north.

magpie said...

Wow, turkey at Snowman Cam? I guess I could do the 24-hour video review and try to see it...

magpie said...

Okay - at Snowman Cam...
just saw it was there around 8:25 am....guess it was a turkey, kind of looked like a Goose to me....also saw there was a pile of deer there last evening, and overnight....

Mits said...

he has been running in and out of the pic all morning

magpie said...

Just checked on the Flamingoes and the mallards at the National Zoo too, thanks for the tip Norma...☺

Well, I have to move along now.

TTFN Have a Great Day, All.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...
I haven't seen our baby panda in over a week and I see he is now walking like a BIG BOY!

carolinabeachmom said...

good morning PAULA. I couldn't get a pic at Seal Rock.

NORMA I still can't believe that the Atlanta Zoo will be doing away with their Panda Cam. I surely must have brought them alot of viewers and publicity. Such a shame.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning WANDA. Hope you are feeling much better today.

paula eagleholic said...

And morning, Red and Sissy...

normabyrd said...

Such a tiny little cub!!!---He is the most handsome little panda I have seen for a while!!----Reminds me of little TAI!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I know Norma. I have been grieving so over it. Wish I had a ton of money, I swear I would donate it. They say we will get updates but that just ain't the same. I really hate that we are losing that cam.

magpie said...

Wow, Paula, thanks for the heads up on the Western Eagles...just had a quick view before heading out the door....Even West End is not so gnarly this morning...

Bye.

xo

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Blogger cop keeps getting me!! Are you watching, Norma? Lun Lun has Luney in the hammock!!

carolinabeachmom said...

Two at Pelican harbour again. Beeking and courting.

magpie said...

And you too MITS, Candy and everyone else with the Eagle Alerts.

And a big Thanks to the Blogger Cop ! Grrrrrrrrrr...

Hi Wanda...

Bye

deb said...

Good morning, everyone. Lots of activity in CA this morning. 2 eagles at WE, TH and PH. I couldn't get a picture at SR.

carolinabeachmom said...

It looks like it is feeding time for the little one. They both fit in that hammock just right, and look so comfortable.

deb said...

I fed the birds, now the dogs think it must be there turn.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO---PAULA---SHARON---NATURENUT---& WANDA---Just look who is taking over the day room!!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' DEB!!---Great to see you are back!!

Mema Jo said...

Whoo Hoo! Luney is in the hammock!
That sight sure brings back memories of his sister!

normabyrd said...

Won't be long until 'PRINCE XI' will be sleeping on the top log of the hammock!!----Looks like a little pillow lying there!!! ho!

Mema Jo said...

I didn't yet read the early am thread... Should I assume that someone emailed Steve about the live feed ?

carolinabeachmom said...

He has a fully tummy now,so he is taking a Panda nap.

Mits said...

I did, Jo

Mits said...

dawn has arrived at LW

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the info on the hummer, Jim,

LATEST PANDA UPDATE FROM NATIONAL ZOO.....December 25
The sunrise was beautiful this morning. The sky went from midnight blue, with the tiniest sliver of a moon, to bold strokes of greys, and oranges added on, at dawn. The pandas are all up and ready for their first bamboo meal, at this time of day. Their anxiety to eat makes for fleet feet when preparing their morning meal. Care must be taken by the keepers in case the morning mist has turned into an icy glaze in the yards. The pandas, even demure Mei Xiang, bulldoze their way out and straight to the first pile they find. Gone are the preferences from a mere month ago…golden bamboo is delicious again. The pandas also are now requesting their second feeding as early as 10:00 am. After some serious attention to the bamboo it is time to wander and play. Playing in trees is the activity of the season. With their new found energy pandas may be seen playing or wandering just about everywhere now.

This is the time of year that the nutrition department staff has to work extremely hard to keep our shed full of bamboo. They do this on top of all the work it takes to feed all of the other zoo animals. The work load of the keeper staff also increases, not only in distributing the bamboo, but also picking up all of the feces! Pandas digest only 20-25% of what they consume and can produce up to 40 fibrous, green or yellow (depending on what part of the plant they have eaten) large, baked potato sized droppings. When the pandas shred and eat the culm or stalk, all of the remainder must be cleaned up. Only one look at their beautiful faces contentedly munching bamboo makes our morning, and every morning of the year, like Christmas.

Mits said...

just heard from Ceil, she says Hello to everyone, they finally got out of the neighborhood yesterday....

Mits said...

eagle back at BWE

paula eagleholic said...

BWE - 1 back

paula eagleholic said...

Update from Barton Cove Website - don't know if this was posted before or not.

December 17, 2008 - Update
As many viewers know, the tree that held the Barton Cove Eagle nest blew over during a passing storm on July 27th. There is a new potential nest site in a red oak on the big island. The area is being monitored to see if the adults rebuild at the new location. We will post any new information as it becomes available.

paula eagleholic said...

Osprey at CC

deb said...

Our cams are back up!

deb said...

Thanks, Steve and crew, for getting our cams back up for us!

Anne-Marie said...

eagle at BW

Anne-Marie said...

Hi gang, the wind sounds cold , thanks Steve

deb said...

Hi, Anne Marie, hope you had a good Christmas.

deb said...

Two osprey at CC.

Anne-Marie said...

Thanks Deb. It was full of love,kisses and great food. back on the diet today..:)

Anne-Marie said...

The heavy storms north of us are pushing the birds down here. I have seen birds at my feeder I have never seen before. As soon as I get my knee replacement I will be able to get out and get pictures.

deb said...

What kind of birds are you getting?

Anne-Marie said...

I got a book to put on the coffee table that I could reach. Bright yellow canaries. Blue buntings, a bright green finch type that wont hold still long enough to identfy. They have brought me a great deal of company not being able to get around. I really wrenched this silly knee goofing off with the kids. The squirrls and jays eat the sun flower seeds and the rest is for first come first serve.

Anne-Marie said...

the paper reports of eagles seen in the foothills. Heavy snows are bringing them down from the Seirra. Skiing is good.

deb said...

Sounds like fun, Anne. Sorry to hear about your knee! Do you have the surgery scheduled yet?

deb said...

Burrowing Owl is out.

Anne-Marie said...

Not the knee Deb but my stomach comes first. I'm falling apart..:) where's the crazy glue?

deb said...

Sounds like I feel today. I stepped in a hole yesterday and wrenched my back somewhat. I couldn't see the hole for the snow! I am stiff today.

deb said...

Luckily, my stiffness will go away. Sorry to hear you have stomach surgery ahead of you.

Anne-Marie said...

Ah its a piece of cake.. I'll be in and out in no time. I have too much intestants and they are crowding everything else . so they are going to take some out. Nothing exciting. Just a birth defect. We all have one thing or another.

Anne-Marie said...

I'm sorry about your back. OUCH. A heating pad will help. If you have to leave the house the pads that self heat at the drug store really help.

Anne-Marie said...

Be back in a minute....

deb said...

Some weird sounds coming from our cam.

deb said...

Eagle at LW!

magpie said...

Hello again, everyone, Good to see you Anne-Marie - - sorry to hear about the old knee...but so happy to hear about those colorful birds ! Beauty loves Beauty!

..and sorry to hear about the back, Deb.... if I did that I would be out of commission for awhile! Your Bird Count outing sounds sooooooooooo dreamy ! The only time I have seen an American Kestrel is on the bird count I went on two years ago, it was so very pretty. And I have saved back a few of the 1-cent Kestrel postage stamps...

I am happy to report that I have the Caltrans Eagle site up and running, the install of Quick Time 7.5.5 went well...

Time for a very large Panda Nap....

Just wanted to say "Hi." ☺ ♥

xo z z z z z

deb said...

One moose at moose cam is stretched out on the ground.

deb said...

If you are still there, Margy, check out the LW nest, absolutely beautiful view right now.

magpie said...

Whoa, thanks for the LW and Moose alert, Deb...guess I'll watch for a few minutes...☺

paula eagleholic said...

Howdy, Anne. Sorry to hear about the stomach surgery...I knew the knee one was coming..but sorry it's not feeling good. Hope you had a super Christmas!

magpie said...

Oh, that was very nice...loved it when he/she looked straight at the camera.

Good Night.....xo

deb said...

Spread out moose finally sat up!

Mema Jo said...

Back in operation now! Glad the live feed is fixed. Having my afternoon cup of coffee and cheese & crackers.

OK - Anne Marie go for it! Here is hoping that you have insurance to cover the tummy surgery! And then on to your knee!!!

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the pics Deb.

Mema Jo said...

Glad you are enjoying the book Red!
Let us know when you are checking in on us!!

Mema Jo said...

I wonder if hunting season is over in MI - LOTS of deer on the snowman cam.

Mits said...

my computer is running weird today, especially when it comes to the blog:(

paula eagleholic said...

Mits - I was just going to ask if anyone else had problems refreshing the blog...takes like 5 minutes to refresh for me...

paula eagleholic said...

And awhile to post as well...

Lolly said...

Hi Paula, it just took a sec to refresh. Will see how long it takes this to post.

Lolly said...

Posting was as fast!

Lolly said...

It is taking me a while to get used to this laptop. I have not had a laptop since I retired eight years ago. Hopefully our computer will be back up and running tomorrow,

paula eagleholic said...

Better now...

Lolly said...

I do much better with the laptop sitting at a table and not in my lazyboy. Shucks! Sitting here at the kitchen table, I see I need to refill the suet for the birds.

Lolly said...

Good! Your Mom continuing to improve?

paula eagleholic said...

Slowly, Lolly.

Thanks for asking.

Blog slow too again...

deb said...

There was just a little hanky panky on the osprey cam at CC.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Evening Everyone.
Finished out yesterday all the Christmas Celebrations....so now it forward towards the New Year.

Been Watching Luney crawling around using his hind legs. Love it !!

Been helping Granddaughter and great grandson out during day. Makes us leave earlier and get home later. It's worth it though!
She'll soon get on her feet.

Paula glad Mother is doing better...one step at a time.

Anne will put you on prayer list for surgery on stomach. My sister and I had that when born. But our surgery had to be done 20 and 22 days after birth.

deb said...

I posted pictures of the osprey at CC on Nest pictures.

paula eagleholic said...

Kewl Deb. Mebbe some eggs soon ♥

magpie said...

Great capture Deb, first this way, then that way...

for a bit there I was wondering where the male's other leg was! Finally I see it. May he has a little Stork in him...

Hear noises at the microphone our nest...

magpie said...

I guess those are children noises at our nest...think?

Dana, hope all will be okay with g-daughter and gg-son...
It is good that you can help out...

Mits said...

thanks, Deb,,,,maybe good news soon:)

Mits said...

Lolly my lap-top is on my desk....haven't tried it in recliner...

deb said...

I hope we have an egg soon, too. It will be fun to watch at this nest.

Mits said...

wonder if there will be a visit soon?

Mits said...

yeah that will be cool.

deb said...

something was just by the mic.

Mits said...

sounds like something landed close by

Mits said...

c'mon, little eagle we know you are there...

Mits said...

going to leave the room, that should bring them in.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb just seen your pictures. I love the one of the cedar waxwing. Although the fence with the ice is a beautiful catch.

deb said...

The fence picture doesn't do the sparkly day justice, Dana. None of my pictures showed just how beautiful it was!


EAGLE!

Mits said...

just flew into nest...

wvgal_dana said...

EAGLE ALERT!!!

deb said...

NOW BOTH!

Mits said...

both are there.

magpie said...

Holy Smokes - What a noisy landing, one then two ! ☺ ☺

paula eagleholic said...

tHERE THEY ARE

wvgal_dana said...

Moving sticks

paula eagleholic said...

bELLE IS near....Lib is far.

magpie said...

wvgal_dana said...

Mits said...

magpie said...

Okay - I see you are here, MITS, missed your come back post...☺

Mema Jo said...

Love our LIVE FEED !!!

deb said...

Two eagles at BWE.

Mema Jo said...

I can hear them - that is pure music!

deb said...

And then there were none. Something by the mic, though.

magpie said...

Two at BWE - -while we wait for ours to come back

Mits said...

they are so much quieter than the eagles in Maine:)

magpie said...

Sounded like little turtle dove chortles, MEMA....♫ ♪

Mits said...

here come the geese.

deb said...

Osprey just left CC, geese flying over.

magpie said...

Down to one at BWE -

Mema Jo said...

Good shot at BWE
I guess it is Lord Blackwater....
I am looking at tail feathers

Mema Jo said...

Poof at BWE &&&&& IT just may have been Lady Blackwater!

magpie said...

I can just sit here and picture all of us cam-hopping...looking for action...
PH and TH and West End all look empty. What is up with West End? So wiggly and distorted!

It seems too early for OURS to be done...not enough Eagle Folks got to see them!

Mits said...

beautiful deer on Pix

Costume Lady said...

Margy, I tuned in just in time to see them both land. Haven't done much watching today, but was here at the right time:):)

deb said...

Oh, they are pretty deer at Pix Pa!

wvgal_dana said...

Saw in comments where our Norma had an accident in Shepherdstown 4 way stop. Glad she seen Sandra & Tom. So glad our LADY NORMA is ok. The car can be fix or replaced. But NOT OUR LADY NORMA !!

Jo seen in comments were Patrick has to go back. Darn Sorry I know we all were wishing his time had been shortened. Keeping him in Prayer!!!!!

magpie said...

All right Sky Watchers! Check out the Crescent Moon ! It's a must see! A newborn Moon, always a beauty, and then to the upper left of that, Venus ♥ and it is not dark enough to see Jupiter yet....

didn't think we would see baby moon so soon !

wvgal_dana said...

My one cam that I was watching was Atlanta. When it stopped for the day. The picture of Little growing Luney is still on there. He is laying in the bamboo. Not ready to close the pic out yet. Our dear sweet boy.

magpie said...

Hallelujah Hawaii Wanda! (grandson's phrase for a good thing...)

It puts a zip in everyone's step...

magpie said...

Wanda, did Caltrans open up for you? Mine did, and of course, have only seen cars going by and twinkly action at the nest...might not be too late.

Got a call to work midnight to 0600 - Wah Wah Wah ! Was not planning on this....:(

wvgal_dana said...

Ok Margy just went out in cold. Seen the moon then upper left beautiful bright. What is that at the lower right of moon?

magpie said...

My computer definitely has problems when I open up the IWS California sites...can't figure out why but things instantly start to freeze up...

Just barely saw those deer at PIX PA in time...

magpie said...

That would be Jupiter Dana...I didn't see it at first, had to go further outside to get away from the trees...

Nice isn't it? Tuesday night the moon will be closer to Venus, then it will probably trade positions with it...

Great Stuff !

Look South, folks, or South/West...
whatever direction the sun just set in... ☺

Mits said...

hey Margy, on the San Diego game last night they showed a shot of the crescent moon and the planets over the Pacific Ocean it was a great pic.

Mits said...

split!!!!!!!!!!!!
