Good morning everyone. Finally starting the day out of bed and able to breathe reasonably well.

Its going to be about 30 here eventually and the sun is shining.Hope you all will have a beautiful day as well.

2 Eagles at BWO...one came back with a fish!
I'm going to the Ravens' game, Norma, we are season ticket holders..... we rained on your parade last week...tee-hee...that is what the owner gets for picking the Ravens,,,the NFL allowed him to pick who he wanted to play in the last game at their stadium...he picked the Ravens because he said it would be a sure victory for the Cowboys....he should have picked the Lions....lol
The OREGON NEST is covered with snow---& it's starting to snow---But the trees & greenery in the area are bare!!!
Paula, news was saying alot of people were returning yesterday from holiday trips....
Jo I talked to Ceil yesterday, they are still stuck in Forest Grove, still can't really move around....they have no plows and they don't treat roads, so it is what it is....
I didn't think the COWBOYS were out yet----I think they have another game!!----BUT I will have to wait & ask LOLLY!!!!
OH! I have all my doors open also!Feels great! At least I will enjoy it while I can!
Mits - traffic wasn't too bad yesterday...just not running down the road again today...
MORNIN' PAULA!!---WOW!---Sounds as if you are having GREAT weather!!---We are having light rain & very windy!---ENJOY YOUR SPRING WEATHER!ho!---Good thoughts to your MOM!!
I googled Forest Grove ORThey have a great New Year's Eve Bash!I wonder if they made it to St Anthony's for mass? But Mits are they still boarded on the train?
Back to the birds!Both eagles at BWO
JO--Talked with SANDY & TOM the other day---At the 4 way stop---A kid ran into my car!---When I called Lisa---she kept saying that's SANDY---I couldn't figure what she was saying!!---(i wasn't with the program)---Both TOM & SANDY were so very kind!!---I saw a pic of her BEAUTIFUL MABEL!!---I think she said they are coming at New Years!!
Jo they leave on Saturday to come back...Norma Cowboys play Giants today in NY.....they are not out of it yet, but they really wanted to win last week at the closing of their stadium, maybe they will get another chance
DANA!!!--NO DIVERS or DONKEYS!!! soooooooo you can go back to sleep! ho!
Good morning, eagle lovers. WHat a balmy day...63° here, breezy and cloudy. Nice to sit out and breathe in fresh air--with a coat, of course--pneumonia weather! Had my new camera, but nothing good to take a pic of! Lazy day is right!Norma, hope damage to your car wasn't too bad! You didn't stick around here for long!! Did you visit the nest??
Norma - Sorry to hear about the 4-way stop. It is a very treacherous intersection. I am glad you got to see Tom & Sandy! I had stopped by also and saw the pic of the new grandbaby! I hope you have wheels - or are you home already?
SKINS play San Fran this afternoon in SF. Hope Ravens win, Helen! And hope rain holds off until you get home!Margy had some good captures this am...first time I've seen the mating...cool!
Small bird at the WildWatch Osprey nest- that egg is still in there.Foggy looking at Lake WASnow melting away from the owl's burrow.I guess Deb is out there counting all those birds!
I know the town probably does not want it, but they should have a light there, people don't know the 4-way rule, or they know it, but ignore it.
Glo, glad you are feeling better. Mucinex is a must have in the medicine cab....most Drs. recommend it now.
SDZ---GAO--GAO---is always on!!---I am dying to see our BEAUTIFUL little PRECIOUS!!!
Lynn, my philosophy on football is like hubbys',"it is what it is", I have too many important things to worry and care about in this life.
Mucinex-DM is great!
Don't Worry BE HAPPY Where oh where are our Bluefield gals?
Helen, they put a light there once...it didn't last very long...I can't remember the reason they took it down! Someone needs to ask Sandra.
The streets and the roof tops in Bluefield are free of snow - The galsmust be out and about.
WVU win celebration probably still going on in Bluefield!!!
wonder if they will ever retrieve that egg from the osprey nest?
I have been counting the days we have left to see our 'PRINCE XI'------He is just reaching his peak now!!!----Maybe I can talk SISSY into going to ATLALNTA & PICKET the ZOO!!---ho!----3 DAYS LEFT!!!
clouded leopards and otters snuggling at NZ
OH HEDGIE!!---The STATE OF WV is still celebrating!!--------We take our MOUNTAINEERS seriously!!I understand the BLUEFIELD CREW is so hoarse from cheering----they can't utter a word!!---ho!---KIDDIN'!
I'm sure Atlanta will keep up good reports and videos if they can....send a bunch of money, Norma, that would probably help;)
KIDS!---I like the 4-WAY STOPS!!!---I am upset having to give up my car for a few days---& will having to rent a car!!---
Norma, Sissy DID say that TOm, Mattie and Justin were so hoarse that they couldn't talk when they got home!!!
Were you able to drive your car back to Romney, Norma, or do you have a rental now...and have to have repairs done up here?
HEDGIE---I drove my car home---but they aren't going to work on my car until after the holidays!!!--My ins. will rent the car ---
When I 'GROW UP'------I want to be just like DEB!!!----She does such FUN things!!!----Isn't she COOL??
Well, thank goodness it was drivable!! And so glad you weren't hurt!!
I just finished my wonderful video call to Germany! They are great & enjoying the holidays. Patrick will fly back to Iraq Thursday of this week. He doesn't feel that his tour will be shortened - 9 more months.
Good that you got your call, Jo...too bad that Patrick's tour won't be shortened...boo.Going to watch a movie. BBL.
Going to find some light lunch foodsBBL
There is an eagle up in the ME nestStill wicked weather conditionsHe is eating lunch!
Norma - glad you are OK..car can be repaired!!Normally, that 4 way there works pretty good.
2 now in Maine...thanks for the heads up JO
Looks like Dad is eating in the nest...I could be wrong
The ME couple is really talking to each other! Love the eagle sounds!
One still in ME finishing lunch
Mom took off, Dad still eating....or digging in the bowl...picking at nestovers....nope he is still eating prey
I really hope that the ME couple has a hatching or two this season.
Looks foggy up in Maine
Me too, Jo.
Up on the far branch cleaing his beak now...breezy!!
Make that "cleaning"
Off he goes...
That was a good show for us, Paula!
it is so windy in Buffalo, their goal-posts are bending
2 eagles at WE
Time for me to put my feet up!BBL
my bad, mea culpa, Cowboys are in Philly, Norma.
boardwalk is crowded down the ocean, Jo
Lone eewwiie at BWO now....
Hello - goodbye! I'm off to BW. Will check in later.Bob
Drive fast Bob...eagle at BWO now
Hello Hello Hello Eagle ♀ an ♂ Buds ! So good to "see" everyomne. and read all the News.
And I am obviously not ready to type correctly yet !Nice Moose resting in the snow, so big, maybe it is the Bull that shed its antlers.
I bet DEB will record the highest number on the bird count! I went on one a few years ago with the local Audubon Society, around this time of year. You could count what you see, and what you hear if you were sure you were hearing it. Heard Robins and Meadowlarks in the winter, very nice. And that is when I saw my first Ruby Crowned Kinglet and Brown Creepers, and haven't seen them since!
Norma - Glad you made it to Norma's Roost okay...bummer about the car, hope the rental car you get will be zippy and swanky ! So glad you got to share your bubbly spirit with Tom and Sandra! ♥ ☺
Here is a Stoplight Story regarding Shepherdstown: Many years ago, and I would have to say at least 30 years ago, there was a stop light at that four way intersection. But, rather than all sides being standard with red on top, orange in middle and green on bottom, two directions had that, and the opposite direction had the colors reversed, with red on bottom, and green on top...maybe to save money? Good good friend of mine was color blind! And he really had to pay attention coming through that intersection....☺ ☺ ☺
Eagle Alert, our Nest !
Make that Double Eagle Alert our Nest !
they look so Cozy !
Chirping ever so softly...
LIBERTY HAS LEFT
You are way ahead of me, Margy
I got a couple of nice pics when they were both in the nest will post them in a little while.Thank goodness for that sound on the cam, you can usually hear an arrival !So Glad to have company, Paula!♥
I guess the roar of the pigskin action has got the rest of our Eagle Buds occupied !
And the wind subsided when they landed.....
NNut,you jumped just in time !
Jumped ON just in time that is....They might be back, it's early yet...
I heard Eagles calling, it was at Maine...had to shut that down first to make sure...cannot tell when I have both cams up :(
Guess it was just us "three little pigs" that saw them...☺
Single Eagle at BWO for quite awhile now....looks kinda windy, can't wait to see Bob's new photos when he posts them...
I missed most of that visit...had to restart #$$#% computer!!
Just got back from drugstore & it was so dark thought I should check nest. What a treat!Out front of house, ONE tulip is poking out of the ground!!!It is mid 60's here! DUH
This AM, Fubby said it felt like FL here!
Margy, thx for saving this AMs eagle pics!
Dumb ???, but I'm trying to figure out the orientation of the cam view of the nest.On the road in front at NCTC, the big barn is left of tree.At what o'clock is the barn on our cam pic????
Nature - it is perpindcular to the barn that you see....right behind the small limb at 9ish....in the very upper left corner of the cam pic...
The view has only been rotated 2 hours so to speak...
2 hours to the right, so to speak..
At 11 o'clock on cam, is a low looking white bldg. Could that be the barn? Looks like a chicken coop to me LOL ☺
Poop! Was all frozen up here on the computer too...I have concluded that for some reason the IWS sites seem to slow everything down! Yahoo does too sometimes. Guess it is time to do some deleting...Think I will clean things up before a possible next nest visit..then I will post some afternoon NCTC Eagle pics...BBL
Thanks, Paula! Weather was so good today, I just wanted to get in car & go there & sit (or to the Park)!Jan. we start working weekdays again at Park, so maybe I'll see birds on TU AM.(HEAR THAT, BIRDS??) Our secretary sees them at 7:12 AM. She said 1 is usually in the nest & other in the tree!
I guess I kept my feet up too long & missed the show!
Snowman live feed is frozen but the still cam is working...Last night late I saw a deer on the Okie Bird Cam...Now it is cardinals!Caltrans - Margie and Loretta you are the 2 I think that can't pull this site up. If you get the QT screen up with no pics.. give it a few sec and then double click with your left mouse. I've been able to view both eagles there - the nest is getting active.
Mama oh, I mean, Mema - Okay - will try that with Caltrans...I know Deb had said to try to install Quiktime 7.5.5, might wait until I get off work tonight....(at midnight) The Birds were calm and peaceful looking, just sent a few pictures out. Someday I will get a place on my profile page where I can post them and you all can see them more easily...someday... It's Good to Prop Your Feet Up ! ☺
Looks like I proped my feet up too long, also, Jo...missed it all:(
No Moon for a few days, it is in New Moon phase....when it comes out, we will see some nice pairings again with Jupiter and Venus in the South/South West...☺
Thanks for the pics of this last visit, Margie.
I think BWO Eagle is getting ready to bail, maybe he or she will go its own nest next...
Welcome Wanda! Hope you are feeling better and can start eating some Christmas goodies!
You are most welcome, Jo...I just got lucky. They looked so cozy, I was hoping for some Hanky Panky! ♥ ♥
I haven't seen any Mason updates for a few days. The picture of Mason giving the Peace Symbol, was sent out on a Christmas Photo Card to some friends of mine in Shepherdstown, it is so beautiful!
Well, it is that time again, to get ready for work. Wish I could wear my pajamas to work like Sissy can! January and February, I will be on dayshift... 6 am to 6 pm. Now, That will be different ! Have a good Sunday evening all, hope it is warm, and friendly. Will look to see all the new photos later on, maybe from Deb, and Bob, and Glo....and ? others... Peace, Love, and Prayers xoxo ♥
Last I read on Mason was that he wasdefinitely OUT OF THE COMA STATE!
Well, yes it is!! That was the best card I got this year!!
Yes, Meama - that was a wonderful Christmas gift for his family! Beautiful, pink-cloud streaked sunset here in Berkeley County. Should see Venus, the Planet of Love ♥ pretty soon.TTFN xoxo
MARGY! It seems you are always going as I am coming.LOLHave a good shift:)
Hi Megan - been thinking about you, and all the beauty your handiwork has given this year to many....
I guess this is my three good-bye night....☺
Hello:) hope everyone had a great holiday- I need to change my pic- it's still Christmas...
Wanda - We just pass the baton, that's what it is....xoxoxoxoxo ♥ ♥ ♥
Jo, my appetite is slowly creeping back (unfortunately). Had soup for breakfast and Shrimp and mac and cheese for supper. Staying down pretty well! I have been a bit of a lurker for a few days. I can't seem to type write or right or wright?
RUN, GIRL, RUN!
Okay and now you have Eagles !!
Also, two at BWE !!Rats! This is tough !
BOTH IN THE NEST

POOF, but I got a "gonna bail" pic off still cam.
Darn, missed the beginning of the show. Rebooting 'puter--dwnlded the newer version of QT!
Loretta, loved your card with the black kitty and red ball...adorable!
I had been able to get Caltran, but just a while ago, was told I needed to install a new version of QT and needed to do a scan first, with the offer of a FREE spyware???I'm going to crawl back into bed:(
Got Caltrans. Hope I didn't get any other junk. Now that 'puter is totally fixed, afraid of new dnlds.
Wanda, Thx, QT dwnld site ctried to get me to take some of that other stuff, but I skipped it.Hope you're 100% soon.
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS...☺☺☺Halftime. See I missed a visit from our favorite guy and gal!
Cooling down...53° now..thank goodness violent winds have stopped! No rain with the "cold" front, tho'.
Ho Ho! Missed them again!I was running the Spybot Search & Destroy to clean up this computer.I had NO errors to be reported. Now I don't know what this computer does what it does some of the time.!Hi Megan! My large wreath which I hung inside the house -- it is still fresh and not a needle has dropped.You make very healthy wreaths, Gal!Saw my Big Pool daughter's bittersweet wreath at her house that you made! Looked great!
BOTH EAGELS ARE IN THE NEST RIGHT NOW
One flew- now both gone-
Megan, I missed that visit and I was sitting right here! Jo, hope you didn't miss this one??
Night light is on at BW....I wonder if Bob got some good pics. The sunset up here in the valley was very colorful!
I just pulled up the cam page and one was there- then the other flew in-
Looks like bad news for the Live Feed:(
Yeah- looks like it just went kaput for some reason.....
YES I DID MISS IT AGAIN!I was at the back door saying good night to my company.. Of all the luck in the world - I don't have any today!So The Fat Burrowing Owl is at his burrow. I think he ate the rabbit...
My live feed has lots of interference right now...... does yours?
Ok I read that your live feed is kaput also
Wanda - download the new version,,,,but you don't have to download any of the extras...uncheck the box!
Skins just lost Waaa
I guess all the skins fans are hooting & hollering for a score.Tied game right now
I read somewhere that Bob posted some Christmas photos of his Kitties, but couldn't find the comment or Bob's avatar to have a look-see. So, I typed in Bob Quinn...searched and this is what I got:Bob QuinnSee exclusive Bob Quinn photos and the latest movie clips and trailers, ... Overview: A Navy photographer and his three-man team occupy a Tokyo geisha house ...www.reelzchannel.com/person/267831/bob-quinn - CachedBAD, BAD, BOB!!
Thanks, Paula. Will give it a try.
OK I am seeing that the RAVENS 27took the Jaguars 7 Now that is GOOD!
WANDA Try This Link Bob Quinn's complete gallery
Hope when DEB gets home she doesn't have a stiff neck from looking up into the sky all day!
Raccoons are out in the PA woodsAll Channel Island eagles are out & about - MT nestsHope the West End Cam gets better - don't care for the cam pic
Good pic on Pook's camCould be a cow & calf ORa Bull (without antlers) & cowDon't know how Pook gets to the feeders when they lay right there at them.
PAULA I hope you have had a greatstay at home day!
Going to take a short breakMay be something to watch on tv thisevening - not sure until hubby surfs the channels!!! BBL
Those Redskins can make you say ARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!
Sorry Dallas fans---they got trounced Big Time.
Loretta, did you see Bob's Christmas Kitties? Gotta love a man who loves kitties enough to let them star in a Christmas Album:)
Yes, Wanda!Sent him my email Xmas message & he replied w/kitty Xmas. Looks just like our house!Son & DIL in TN gave us a lovely sheepskin-like throw. I had it folded in it's box near Xmas tree. Big Binky is using it as her new bed!!! Think I should send them a pic?(she hates animals-is afraid of our cat!) TEE HEE
That is funny, Loretta:):) I think I would refrain from sending photo. But....if you get angry at DIL, what a great way to get her goat!! (Sorry, you know I'm just kidding)
OK, I just spent the last 20 minutes downloading a new QT and went back to Caltran and this is what I found: COME BACK AND VISIT DURING DAYLIGHT HOURS. LMBO! I can't win...I'll catch them tomorrow;)
Time for TV and propping up feet.
This is a sentence in a message placed on Mason's site by his gmother Chris- " Then yesterday, as I was working with your mom, you dad called to say you made your first attempt at talking!"No new post by Brian and sylvia yet- just found that in her message- :):):):) keep your fingers crossed ,light the candles, pray, sing, dance, think positive, whatever it is you do...
I am home and wore out. Have to feed the dogs, then I'll tell you about the CBC.
Gotta remind ourselves (myself) to watch Little Luney tomorrow!!!Will be the last week live!! Boo HooI think we should go to Atlanta! I just saw ad on TV for SW Airlines---great deals to all over from $49-$149!!!!
WOW, Megan, that sounds wonderful!Deb, I bet you're pooped. I think the Xmas bird count is done everywhere.? I know we've done it at the Park before. Didn't get a call this year to help & it was gorgeous weather (except cloudy).
Darn, can't get any New Years pics to move...
Dogs are fed, our day started at 6 AM looking for owls. Of course it is still dark but you play their call and listen to see if they answer. At first I was thinking, what fun could this be, but when you hear the owls answering in the dark, it is cool. We did see one screech owl and one Great horned owl. The screech sat about 5 feet from the car waiting to hear the Ipod again.
We saw 43 different kinds of birds, not bad considering all the gulls and a lot of different kinds of ducks left during the cold spell. There were thousands of gulls 2 weeks ago and today we didn't find one. The highlight was a black crowned Night-Heron. That was a surprise. We saw it while the whole group was having lunch so everyone got to see it.
Oh, I forgot to tell you that when the sun came up the world sparkled! Everywhere you looked, weeds, grass, fences and trees were sparkling. With the warmer temps there is moisture in the air, at night it freezes on what ever is around.
Sounds like a fun day, Deb. Yeah, SKins didn't pull it out....arghhhh is right, Loretta. Glad the season is over...better luck next year. Ravens "done good"!! Sorry Lolly and Norma...Dallas got beat up!!! Rah!Watched a good movie today--bit of a tear jerker--P.S.I Love You, with Hilary Swank, Kathy Bates and Harry Connick, Jr. Catch it if you can...on MAX a few times this week. Heading for tub...BBL!
I heard that was a good movie Lynn. I watched The Lakehouse last night w/ Keanu Reaves and Sandra Bullock...pretty good
Bet that was fun trying to get the owls to hoot.
**GOOD NIGHT****ALL**hAVE a good week and a **HAPPY NEW YEAR**[:~D]Jim
Deb, I loved hearing about your day. I sent all your comments to my oldest grandson who is studying Environmental Science. He has been Calling In birds since he was 8 or 9 years old. He would love to chat with you, I'm sure! I may have told you about him...he incubates and hatches orphaned eggs of all kinds (birds, no reptiles).
Good Night, Jim...HAPPY NEW YEAR to you too!
Well the day was successful but awfully quiet. I now have laryngitis.....I did get the Mucinex and will take the second pill and head to bed soon. Got some nice eagle pictures too will post them tomorrow sometime. Magpie I love the story about the stoplights in Shepherdstown 30 years ago thats a great one.Speaking of propping up feet and pretty much calling it a day that would be me. Good Night all.
