Thanks for the info and the new thread, Steve. I'll get everyone!
Whoo Hoo!!The 'tail' is gone at BWE...or covered up in the fur/feathers....
Outstanding news on the technical side, Steve.Do you think possibly, now that we have the zoom feature, that the camera could be moved back a little from the nest, so that we get the total view, including Liberty standing on the edge at 12 o'clock?? And don't forget the edges will get built up even further before the real action starts in the nest.Thanks, I hope you will consider it.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Steve - are you gonna leave the cam up so we can watch? Pretty Please ;)
Eagle at PH
Great! Thanks Steve!!Hello all:)If you want to see what I've been doing that's keeping me so busy, I posted some new pics to my blog..Have a great day! I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa
Thanks, Deb for the roundup, and thanks, Steve for the news
Megan, they are just beautiful:)
Megan, your wreaths are so pretty, I really like the third one down! Nice that Mother Nature helps you water them!
Megan, you do beautiful work.
yea!!!!! the pretty tree is back:)
Megan is soooooo talented:)
Deb, I like the third one down (to the left) too.Megan you do such pretty work:)
Too bad PH cam is so far back, wonder which eagle is there??
Megan - I like the 2nd one with the hOlly
I checked at IWS, they say it is the male.
Too bad we can't smell Megan's wreaths! Can you imagine how here yard and house smell??
Her, not here.
Deb - probably K10
I can't find Luney...he must be getting checked out or weighed. Lu seems happy as a panda.
must really smell like Christmas around her house
Well, now if we all went to Megan's and bought a wreath, may be she would give us a cup of hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies:):)
GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDDIES!!----I just said good morning to every one on the other thread!!---ho!---THANKS STEVEN---GREAT NEWS!!----MORNIN' DEB---PAULA---JIM---MEGAN--& HELEN!!!
WHOA MEGAN!!----I am easy---I would take any wreath you gave me!!!----They are all beautiful!!!
Eagle left PH and looks like it left BWE also, nope, right back at BWE.
Eagle at BWE gone and back again...LUnch is gone!
WOW!---It's a gloomy day here---but temp is 50°---I pray that SHARON won't have any snow on her trip to UVA-----
Deb - did PH eagle leave to the right or left?
osprey at CC
I think right, I'll back it up and check.
BWE gone again
Daggone, how can you back that up? Are you using RP for PH?
OH, and thanks for checking!
Right and down, Paula. It wasn't much to the right, more down.
Quick Time, Paula. I don't know how it works, just pops up that way.
Thanks Deb...he's gone for now, then.I didn't know you could rewind quicktime.
I can't all the time. Isn't it weird how different cams do different things. I can't rewind Oregon on Quicktime.
Ok. I'm off to take my beauty nap. I need lots of help. :) ☺☺
I think it depends on how the feed is sent out...Ours was the only nest I could rewind on RP
I put up a short clip of K10 leaving on Nest Pictures, Paula.
Something at BWE, think it is a turkey vulture.
is that an ewwiiee at BWE nest?
Great News Steve!!!More Great News --- ♥ ♥ ♥ From my daughter SusanJust heard from Ryan...He made it to Kuwait and will be in Ft.Stewart on Monday. WHOO HOO !!Thank you all for all the many many prayers for his safe return. ♥
Hi all! Getting ready to head to Denton to celebrate Laurel's birthday. Get to pick up Jacob at his school. Oh, I love doing that!Megan, beautiful wreaths. Wish I lived closer so I could get one of yours. Too far to drop in, get a wreath and a cup of hot chocolate.(Need a sad face here!)Thought we were going to have our first freeze last night. It was 32 this morning but was not down long enough to do harm. Flowers still blooming, fern still green.
That is very good news, Jo!
Well, it seems I have been blaming the cats for all the feathers in my yard. I just looked out the window and I have a hawk having a little lunch. I took pictures, but did it through the window, so not sure how they will turn out. It is small, so my first thought was a merlin, but I don't think the coloring is right.
How cool, Deb. Have to laugh at you blaming it on the kitty!Might be raining at our nest...Lolly - wow, no freeze yet...
The cats are still here, Paula, maybe the cats clean up after the bird?? Pictures are on my page. Still not sure what it is??
BTW Wanda, love your blue wreath avatar!
I just went and checked to see if the hawk was back to finish up, it was in the pine tree, then flew to crab apple. I am loading more pictures. I got some that aren't through a screen this time. It is very small--10 to 12" is my guess.
DEB I think it could be a Fox Sparrow....
They (Fox sparrows) are pretty pouncy, but I didn't know that they would attack other birds...I have seen once, and it jumps on the ground, pretty much rules the roost if other birds, juncos and things are around trying to eat off the ground.
tiny bird at BWO, forgotten its name
well it flew the coop.
eagles our nest..............
EAGLES IN OUR NEST!!
both are looking around.
Lib looks like he wants to leave already
Well I sure know what WE are all doing right now...
and off he goes
guess she is going to sit there and decide if she wants to work
Darn, haircut at 2, gotta go. Margy, hooked beak, raptor of some sort, I am thinking Broad winged hawk. Later.
I have no sound there, anyone else?Nice pair...
no sound since they brought it back on, Margy...
letting Mother do her thing...
there goes Lib
Oh, funny, now sound...no wonder they would leave !
my sound is back
I was folding clothes in the bedroom and was wondering what the racket was:)
Deb - I think your guess about Merlin is a good one too...just looked at that.You are sharp! ☺ Fox sparrow might be similar, but yep, no hooked beak..
MITS See where your Mating Shots made the BWO Page ! Bravo !
Well, car is ready, shuttle driver on the way..Here goes all my Christmas money, next year's tax refund....and...Oh, give me the horse and buggy days! RED You were so right! Your three things.....let me see, if coffee pot, garage door, or dishwasher more important....☺ Catch you folks later. Looks like lots of good sightings today !
I know it was too early, but was nice to see them bonding:)that is a good start to the season.
RED At least the third thing was not your computer !!! Mine was a mess when I finally got up today...had to shut down and start all over. Woof !I hear the wren at NCTCTTFN xoxo
I hear a bluejay:)
sun is out at snowman cam
Just talked to Sharon. She is finally done. Got one drain out. Back in 2 weeks hopefully to get the rest out. They are heading back this mway. She will be wore out this evening, long trip for 1 day.
Our sound is on!
1 down 3 to go:)
yes, we know:):)
See I'm late for the party again!Darn blogger was hung up!Missed our pair, too!
I had trouble with blog this a.m., when we had the new thread, old would not close and new would not open...
can hear the geese honking..
Deb, I think you have a Sharp Shinned Hawk or Coopers Hawk. I have Sharp shinned Hawks that likes to grab lunch from my feeders. Lunch is usually a House Fench or Chickadee. Sharp Shinned Hawk is just a little bigger than a dove. Cooper Hawk is more crow sized.Identifying Sharp Shinned and Coopers Hawks
Eagle pair at BWO
2 eagles at BWO
Luney is hiding behind the bamboo. I bet that is where he was when Wanda couldn't find him too.
catch ya'll later
EAGLE ALERT!!! Our nest!
Hey ya'll, I think it was Lib. Gone now. Poof!
Well, that was short and sweet. Gonna go out in search of some good Christmas cards. Found some online but they wouldn't get here in time. Wish me luck!!
two at nctc again
Come Back You All ! </b
And Spidey Nest just jumped on too...plop just like that !
I had to hit refresh to get sound back on...
Sigh, I just cannot holler any louder
Sound comes and goes..but birds still there.
I'm watching and been on the phone too, Margy....
Sweeete Liberty is helping and Belle is letting him ! ♥ ♥
Took a panda nap and when I awokeWhat do I see but bothThanks Margy for the email alert
My sound comes & goes alsoMore or less Static
Our eggs are like 2 months away...
mostly humming too...
I have had to refresh sound about six times now....love to hear the sounds of the talons in the nest !
looks like she is ready to bolt
and there she goes...he is still there
...and the sound of wings flapping, even though it means one has left... Glad to see company watching Now look who is in the middle of the nest !
now he is going to move back the stuff she moved
we have had some really nice long visits today
That was sooooooooooo nice!
Yes, that was good to see them. I missed a lot of it today...but this is a good send-off to work!And I got my wheels back. One nice thing, the heater works better!
BWE UPDATE, PICS ARE ON THEIR SITENest Update12/04/08: The parents brought in a mammal with a long tail.Also, we might have seen some adult beak feeding.It's a promising sign to see the adults bonding by bringing meals to the nest.
Thanks Margy for the e-mail but I missed them. I did get to watch Paula's video of Belle with the log. Great video.Trying to get things done. We leave for Oregon on the 20th.
You are going to need that heater this weekend from what they are saying.
good thing for heater to work now:)
And, from my naturalist friend in New York (near the Pa border, near Erie...) "Today I went to the lake and saw another eagle, this time an adult. It was sitting on the ice eating something and several crows were trying to steal its food. Most likely the eagle stole it from them to begin with. There are a couple of Pileated Woodpeckers coming to my feeders at home. They really decimate the suet fast but are so nice to have around. " DEB this is the friend that watched the Merlins catch the Swallows in mid-air over a body of water last year.Time to get ready for work.You all have a good evening. Stay Warm, it is not exactly a beautiful evening. No Trio in the sky tonight here !xo
yeah Ceil, sounds like a cold front coming thru:)
looks cloudy here, so no ISS
Okey Dokey Ceil... maybe that Christmas CD will go with you to Oregon. And this time, you will be well! You should see some very wintry weather on this trip.xox ♥ ☺
you are going a more northern route this time , aren't you Ceil.
Margy that CD is definitely going to Oregon. Yep Mits going North.
Margy have a good night. I will BBL
I think I am going to fool my computer for a change and shut down before I leave for work...then I should be able to jump right on in the morning and see some Eagles, right ?Good Night again...here goes the plug....I hope you all have pleasant evenings in store..Wonder where Hedgie is right now xo
Red, I think you are right. When I checked the Sharp shinned earlier, I didn't see any with yellow in the beak. Yellow eye indicates a juvenile.
Ceil, what route are you taking? Mary Margaret thought you were coming through SD.
they are taking the train this time, Deb.
I don't think any passenger trains come through my part of the state.
There is a much better view of PH now, they moved the camera in closer to the nest.
yes it is a better view.
deer on Pix cam
Deb we will not be going through SD. We will be going through ND. I have to look up the route.
I was just checking the routes. The closest you come to me is about 6 hours north in Fargo, ND. Did you know there is only one state in the continental US that DOESN'T have Amtrak routes? Any guesses which one?If you guessed SD you are right. There are a few others that just get a little bit of a route.
Oops, add Wyoming to no train service. The green lines on my map are for Amtrak bus service.
I did not know that. I just hope we do not get too much winter weather along the way. When we went to San Francisco by train they had a blizzard in Denver. Train got through with no problem. Airport was shut down for 2 to 3 days.
Gotta run. Mrs. Red is on her way home. Gotta fix Dinner.
No snow in the 10 day forecast for Minot, ND.
There is an eagle in our nest. Or is it frozen? Looks too light to be now.
I don't see it Sissy, hit your refresh button
Deer at snowman cam, raccoons at Pix PA.
WOW....those hummers are huge!!!
Luney sure is trying awfully hard to get them legs under him. Getting better at it every day. Can't wait for him to get mobile!!
are you still seeing an eagle, Sissy???
From the puppy cam:The dreaded warning... this coming weekend (Dec 6-7th) will be when the first couple of pups will be heading off to their new homes. Yes, it has been and will continue to be really hard for us to let each pup go but we're confident that they are going to extremely loving and caring homes. We'll be arranging at keast a yearly meet-up (if not more) with the pups that will be going to homes in California. We'll have to post a link to where everyone can go to get updates, progress and pictures on the litter as they grow.
Time for Survivor!
The cheetah's at the NZ are on cam 3.Their eyes glow.
No, Mits, no eagle now. I refreshed and it was gone. :( It is snowing here now. Mattie was worried to death Sharon and Bec were gonna have trouble. She just called for me to look outside and told me how good God is to us, that they got home before it started snowing very much. She is such a worrier, bless her heart.Bad news from my foot. It is more and more swollen, new bruises popping up on it. Lord have mercy, I so do not want to go back to the doctor. Pray, ya'll, pray. Pray my foot to good health!! ☺
Good evening all. I just got home from Charlottesville and am so tired. One drain removed and 3 to go. I go back in 2 weeks and hopefully have more drains pulled. More will be revealed. I will be on antibiotics for at least 3 more weeks. Hope all is well with everyone and will check in tomorrow. Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur!
My computer has been the pits this week, gonna shut er down and run some scans...TV night anyhow...Grey's and ERSee ya tomorrow!
Sissy - hot and cold on the ankle..and put it up!!!Night!!
Thanks Paula. I know you are right. Just hard to do. I reckon it'll be easier that puttin up with it like this. Have a good evening ya'll. Gonna go watch CSI and ER.
BLUEFIELD GIRLS, you will have many, many prayers being said for you tonight. I just can't believe the bad luck you have been having. Come stay with me and I will nurse you all back to health :):) You could go down to the nest every day. I'm only three miles away;)
Paula, I have been having BIG TIME agravation with my 'puter. I have to shut it down 3-4 times every day. I have been looking in my DUMMIES book for some idea of what to look for. Gene says this thing is obsolete...it is only 3 years old :(
3 years is not obsolete. You may just need a good spyware remover. You can download "counterspy" and try if for free.Free Trial of Counterspy
Caught some shows on TV this evening..Like Polar Express!I will be praying for all of our illsGood Night All My Friends...Peace to you & your loved onesSafe travels for all((hugs)) ♥
Thanks, Red...I am certainly going to give that a try:):)
Good Night, All...Sweet DreamsPrayers
EAGLE IN THE NEST!!!
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...I feel like I'm in the Twilite Zone. Where is everyone?I guess our still cam is looping and the live cam is kaput??
Good Morning, Megan. I'm not sure if that is happening now or if it is looping.
Hey Wanda:) Cam looks live to me....eagle is gone..
Saw that fly out!
Gone, was at 1 o'clock.
Good Morning Loretta...good to see you so early:)
Still cam is lighting up with the sunrise,but not the Live cam.
Morning Everyone! Been turning on other 'puter. Got Live nest up on old one, so I can turn around & watch & not miss anything like I almost did a while ago jumping from nesst to blog tab.My cams look about the same. Spidey web is gone from Live, still is of course in color.
Going for coffee (you know they'll come back!!!)Up 'cuz I pulled an all nighter. Had 2 Giant Panda naps yesterday after Dr. appt & shopping.Saw Xmas tree lighting & konked back out til 10:30 PM & here I am! Don't know for how long--gotta go to work, too!! DUH ☺
Good morning All,I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.I have 3 weeks off in 2 more weeks, hopefully I will be able to spend more time here.I miss everyone
Eagle alert. Belle is working hard
Both there now.
Where is everybody. WAKE UP WAKE UP SLEEPY HEADS. YOU'RE MISSING THE ACTION
Good Morning, Robyn...we miss having you on here. We'll be here when you are ready;)
Thanks for the Alert, Red:)
Wanda, are you seeing the nest now with Belle and Lib working?
Our beautiful 2 eagles in the nest ahhhhhhhhhGood Morning Everyone
Cam is freezing up on me for some reason today. Having to refresh to get it back.
Yes, Red, but the Live cam is not working right and the Still cam seems up-to-date. I'm soo confused.
Good morning everyone. Watching our lovely Liberty and Belle this morning.
I'm watching live cam. Its the one freezing up.
Something just isn't right???
It will be nice Monday when the new equipment is up. Tilting the cam some so we can fully see Liberty at the 12 o'clock position will be great too.Nice stick Belle ( :
Did you download and run Counterspy yet Wanda?
Oh Robyn your weeks off can be filled with watching the nest. After they have gone up the tree on this Monday coming. You'll be enjoying good viewing pleasure for ALL.
GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDDIES!!---I was watching our "ROYAL PAIR"----and WHOA!---my computer froze!!--It certainly is a lovely day in my neighborhood this morning!!!----'I LOVE EAGLES IN THE MORNING---I LOVE EAGLES IN THE FALL---I LOVE EAGLES MOST OF ALL.....What a way to start the day on this frigid morning!!----
OK, it's official...live cam is frozen, still cam is OK.
I see Liberty's feeties hee hee
I can refresh the live cam and get it back as long as it's not the popup cam.
Red, I was not certain whether or not I should. Counterspy said not to download if you already have spyware...And I don't know whether or not if I do. I am so unhappy with the situation right now..my puter is worse than dial-up:(:(
Oh, yes...I see Lib's feetsies:)
Well if the cams are stuck. At least Liberty's feeties are there. lol Not a blue, green and red colors floating across the top. With an empty nest picture. It will unfreeze if frozen up later.
Wow sorry Wanda....Man if only Nilla was around. She went to Sandra's and fixed her computer right up. Boy was Sandra O. ever having problem back then. Oh what ever happened to Nilla????
Hello Wanda, Norma, Red, DanaWhen did we get sound on cam?
I doubt if you have another one Wanda. Even if you do it won't hurt anything to run Counterspy. Just might not have as good results. It sure sounds like you need any relief it can give you.
Sound has been working for a few weeks now Robyn. Also they are planning more equipment changes early next week.
Good morning everyone especially Robyn. Good to hear from you.
