Hi, Bob...Merry Christmas to you and Mrs. Bob!

Costume Lady said...

Looking forward to some SNOWY photos from you :)

Bob Quinn said...

Merry Christmas!!! Haven't been to BW in a while. Anxious to go back and post some photos.

Mits said...

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Helen...I wonder if Steve knows we have Spidey (or Mrs. Spdey) back. He will have a nervous break down. LOL

Costume Lady said...

Gotta get back to work.

helicopter flying by

deb said...

I just walked in and was thinking what is that noise, helicopter on our cam. Eagle in Norfolk nest, one at BWO.

Mits said...

they are beaking at Norfolk, Deb:)

deb said...

Dang, I went to stir my soup and missed it. They zoomed in, too, didn't they?

deb said...

Maybe not, the eagle up front just makes it seem like it.

Mits said...

I didn't see the LW eagle

deb said...

Me either, I just opened the nest--it looks pretty covered in snow.

Mits said...

from their weather report think they only got a couple of inches...

deb said...

Eagle alert--our nest!

deb said...

Now both!!

deb said...

EAGLE ALERT, BOTH IN OUR NEST!

deb said...

Lib is almost hidden by Belle at this angle.

wvgal_dana said...

deb said...

HEY EVERYONE, WE HAVE EAGLES!

deb said...

wvgal_dana said...

yummy yummy

deb said...

Both eagles in Norfolk again. Poof for our nest.

deb said...

Poop shoot at Norfolk and a take off.

deb said...

NBG just went to night light. I think that is how we abbreviated it last season.

wvgal_dana said...

I late but HI BOB Merry Christmas to you and the WIFE and HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

Mits said...

I could not remember how we abbreviated it Deb, thanks

Mits said...

now the geese are flying by, that was a nice little visit

Both eagles at BWE and NBG.

deb said...

Down to one an BWE, oops, make that none.

Bob Quinn said...

Merry Christmas Dana!

NatureNut said...

Son of a gun! I was getting lonely w/my eagle alerts, so saved 4 pics from still cam.
Now I see there's a new thread! Bummer!

glo said...

Good evening all. Beautiful picture Steve thank you so much. Spent late morning and early afternoon going to my favorite spots this itme of year. Tonight I will see what kind of photos I got. I did see Countless Eagles and a gorgoeus Blue Heron. Loaded yesterdays photos to Glo's Glimpses just a little while ago. I so love this tim eof year photo wise. I am out in the ocld much more than I am in actually.

Weather hasn't started yet but still in forecast. As long as we don't get enough ice to bring down power lines all will be well enough as the storm is to be over by noon or so. Party is at 5 with a neat Pizza Place catering for free and Santa arrives at 6. Still hoping and praying and right now things are sounding a little better locally. Dicey but doable if they are right now.

Bob Quinn said...

I guess you didn't see my "come on over" Loretta. ☺

glo said...

I read your alert when I first came in. Went right to the cam before posting my previous message but I was too late :(. So glad they are visiting regularly and eating in the nest. Great sign as we have all been learning.

deb said...

Eagle at Caltrans.

deb said...

Scrub Jay at PH, I am pretty sure that is what it is.

Mits said...

looks a little breezy there today,,,,they have also been working on the bridge for a couple of weeks now

deb said...

Yes, to does look windy, Just finished Cindy's Battle Hymn song as the eagle flew away, made it even more beautiful.

Mits said...

snowing at the Oregon eagle nest

Mits said...

moose on moosecam

Mits said...

that e-mail from Cindi was awesome

Mits said...

deer just walked in front of the moosecam

deb said...

Eagle back at Caltrans.

Red said...

She's having problems with those sticks too.

Red said...

must be hard doing all those repairs with only you mouth.

deb said...

Now both!

deb said...

Now both on the same stick!

deb said...

She is determined to get it in just the right spot, Red.

Mits said...

wonder when they lay their eggs?

Mits said...

hey Red, how's it going?

deb said...

I do, too. I am not sure if they are on the same timeframe as the Channel Island eagles or not.

Red said...

I'm starving Mits and Mrs. Red is hung up at work. Might have to cook dinner and let her have warm ups. lol

deb said...

I didn't find dates, but I found that they have names:

The cone was removed last December and the eagles - named Patriot and Liberty via an online Record Searchlight poll - raised their eaglets, Freedom and Conehead, also named by poll, this spring and summer.

Mits said...

lol....conehead????

Mits said...

I'm hungry too, Red...waiting for pizza delivery:)

Mits said...

got all the rest of the decorating done..now tackling laundry

deb said...

Eagle at LW.

Mits said...

pretty much right on time

Red said...

I think I read the story about them placing a cone in the nest to discourage them from using the nest but they insisted anyway. The cone was removed and the first born was named conehead.

Mits said...

that's right I remember that story

deb said...

That was the nest the Caltrans workers put a cone over so the eagles would leave, but they just kept coming back anyway. Must be how Conehead got its name.

Red said...

Mrs Red is a manager of a Travel Agency here in Huntsville and has a man trying to leave Cairo, Egypt and her office has experienced a power outage. She is having to wait for power to come back on so she can finish getting him to whereever he's going. Of course it's 3:30 AM there too. I think I may as well fix dinner and let her warm it up when she gets here. See Y'all later.

Mits said...

sounds good Red.

Mema Jo said...

I think the LW and the Caltran eaqle nests are going to be great to watch this season along with our Live Feed!

Eagles Eagles Everywhere!


Hi Bob Quinn and Merry Christmas to you and your wife & all the Kits!

Mits said...

I think so too, Jo

Mits said...

wow, beautiful fly-in at Caltran

hedgie said...

Good evening, ladies and gents. Sounds like everyone has had a good viewing day.
Sissy, loved the pic of Tom and the doggies...the rescue boy is on Tom's right arm, right? He does look emaciated.
Welcome back, Jim and Bob!
Ceil, are you ready for your trip??
Bet Glo is having fun-fun-fun at the party!

Mits said...

deer, snowmancam.

paula eagleholic said...

Evening, all. Went out to try and finish up Xmas shopping...almost there!

Mom might get released tomorrow.

Costume Lady said...

I hope to finish up shopping Saturday. For some reason, I have enjoyed Christmas shopping this year. I have no idea why.

Costume Lady said...

Paula, is your Mom going back to the Nursing Home or to her house?

hedgie said...

Will keep my fingers crossed that tomorrow will be the day, Paula!
Steve, thanks for the pic...very cool! Too bad we can't see Nu!!

hedgie said...

Poor Margy must have had a rough day...she's probably slam wore out and sleeping, I hope!

magpie said...

Good Evening Eagle ♀ and ♂ Buds.

It was a rough day, long hours, then 15 mins before I was due to leave, bad wreck on the interstate so 90 minutes later I did get out of there...you're right, Hedgie, Slam Wore Out. Go to bed, go directly to bed, do not pass go, do not collect $200...

But I did just catch up on blog posts. Couldn't open or close the computer this morning...had to unplug the darn thing tonight just to start over...that's not normal.

Sounds like a really great Eagle-Watching Day! Good to see that Jim was able to hobble back on for a bit.

Best wishes for all your dreams to come true Friday...Glo's workplace party for the kids, Paula's Mother being released...and every little thing that is in your heart. ♥

Good Night...
Peace, Love, and Prayers xo ♥

paula eagleholic said...

Mom will be going back to the nursing home when she is released, Wanda.

Costume Lady said...

Helen, I came upon this ad in KIJIJI and thought about you:

Inaugural Housing - Bowie, MD


Rental Period 1/16/09 – 1/22/09 (Flexible) 7 Day Rental Only v 3 Bedrooms; 2 Full Baths; 2 Half Bath v ... US $2,850.00

Costume Lady said...

I'm sorry, Paula...I was hoping she was well enough to go home to recuperate. The time will come.

Costume Lady said...

Margy, do you know what mile marker the wreck was near? Was there any fatalities?

Costume Lady said...

Margy, your 'puter sounds like it is acting up exactly like mine. It works really well for a while then it get a STUBBORN STREAK! Have to completely shut down power:(

Mits said...

Wanda, you would not believe some of the prices I am hearing for that week....I'm planning on heading to the beach that week

Lolly said...

Lolly is on her way to NY. Michael called and said that he feared snow would mess up the NY airports in the morning, co they flew out tonight.

Jack

Lolly said...

Jack

Mits said...

thanks, Jack, good thinking on their part....my hubby has been in Atlanta all week , and most of the people who live in the NE, left tonight

Red said...

Wanda and Margy, You SHOULD completely power your PC off every day or two. Thats the only way the memory gets cleared. If the memory gets too full it will slow everything down.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Jack for the update. I'm sure she'll get there with good weather - I just hope you get her back for Christmas

Keep us posted - thanks again.

hedgie said...

What a miracle that Michael could get their flight bumped up! Hope Lolly was READY for a last minute change! Sure hope there isn't a NY blizzard this weekend!

Costume Lady said...

Red, I think you are right. I have done that and 'puter runs well...at least for a day. Thanks for all the tips and help that you give us:)

Costume Lady said...

Jack, thanks for letting us know where Lolly is. Hope the weather doesn't hamper their trip.

Costume Lady said...

Helen, you are VERY wise to leave town! I would be afraid to rent out my house!

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks, Jack. Glad they got out early!

I turn my computer off each night.

Wanda - that's OK...Mom has a ways to go before she can go home.

Mits said...

trust me, Wanda, I would never rent my house or my condo:)

paula eagleholic said...

Time for a new pic...

Costume Lady said...

I hope Lolly took her new Lap Top and keeps in touch with us.

Costume Lady said...

Paula, so pretty! Mine is suppose to twinkle too.

deb said...

Just got done watching a movie, took out the garbage for the morning pick-up and the snow is coming down. I kept hoping it would stay south, I am in the 2-4" zone, so that isn't too bad.

deb said...

The radar really looks nasty in Nebraska and Iowa for icy conditions. I hope the Quad Cities aren't getting it too bad for Glo's party tomorrow.

deb said...

Light, freezing rain with a temp of 19 in the Quad Cities, I would think it will switch to snow soon.

paula eagleholic said...

I love your wreath Wanda, blinking or not

Mema Jo said...

I am calling it a day......
May all travelers be safe!

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

(((hugs))) ♥

deb said...

I see Lolly is off to New York, glad they could work out the flights and she can have a little extra time with Michael.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SWEET DREAMS
PRAYERS FOR ALL

Costume Lady said...

GOOD NIGHT, JIM..

hedgie said...

Nice wreath, Paula!
Good night, dear friends all. Blessings and prayers.

Lolly said...

Lolly called. They have arrived, and couldn't find a pizza place quickly enough, so they ate buritos. I ridiculed them severely for going to NYC to eat Tex Mex. It was 38 and more or less dry.

Jack

NatureNut said...

Just shutting down since Stopzilla finished spyware scan. Tried to start a new label page in Word w/Avery program & you'd think I broke into a bank! All kinds of messages that Avery had something malicious & it was blocked!I made copy of existing page & deleted the names & reused it. So There!

Jack, thx for info on Lolly. What a great idea. Don't know how they changed flight. Month ago I couldn't get one for TX. Guess we won't be having TX Mex for Xmas!

Helen, I thought of getting out of town for inauguration, too. Maybe I can get to TX then! Nighty-night all.

Red said...

Wake up everyone. Just because its Friday dosent' mean you can sleep in. Don't think I have ever been first one on in the mornings.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning Friends!! Looking for a visit this morning. The eagles at Norfolk have been there since I got up at 6. They really stay around that nest alot don't they.

Hope everyone is safe in their travels. I guess this will be a busy weekend for travel.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning Red. Looks like it is me and you this morning so far. I bet there are some "lurkers" out there somewhere.

Red said...

I was watching Norfolk also. Only one there by the time I got up.

Costume Lady said...

WE HAVE A NEW THREAD...COME ON OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

YEAH RAH!! EAGLES IN OUR NEST!

Apologies for my neglect on this site.  I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
