magpie said...

* Hi Ceil *
I've been wondering that too, and no late night good night from Jim either...
Red might have said something about going away...will try to look back and see.

ceil said...

Hi Margy,
Hope your car is not too expensive. I had to get new glasses and they are very expensive this time. I was just thinking I should have waited one more month. Well off to shop.

magpie said...

Golly Neds, it is 4 pm in Finland and getting dark. Daylight around 8:45 - and over now. Days are really getting short over there!

magpie said...

Okay ! We got our feeds back at NCTC !

Thank you Steve and the Gang !

xoxo

magpie said...

I can't find Red since last Wednesday....I'll try an email...
It ain't the same without him!

magpie said...

I don't think I can go to Alabama and look for RED...just tried to send him an email...told him we are looking for him!

magpie said...

That is a most unusual sound at our nest! Clackity clackity clackity....reminds me of those wind up teeth!

glo said...

Good morning all. Glad to "hear" the cam is up. Will check in when Dex and I return from the Vet(just a checkup and rabies shot visit, I hate that though the shot part. Maybe I will stick my arm in the way.). well yes I am a little nuts at least about this dog.,

graylag goose feeding and eagle lookout adventure. Ice and snow here so a little slow going.

Have a good day.

Red said...

I'm here. Have just been lurking lately. Sorry to have worried anyone.

grannyblt said...

Morning all

Quick check of cams show a lonely squirrel in PA, a crow at BWO, wind at ME

Cold and some snow here....I guess that will be myreport for the next 4 months LOL

Sorry about the new glasses price, Ceil. I say that smugly because I went last month after 3 years expecting to need new ones, and the Dr. said only a slight change, so I am waiting till after tax time.

Whoopie, sun coming out. Off to take om for a perm.

magpie said...

Whew, okay Red!

Thanks for Checking in!

magpie said...

RED - I'd have hitch-hiked to Alabama to look for you though

Good to See you, Grannyblt, Glo, and some more coming on this morning... ☺ ☺ ☺

magpie said...

We got two in our nest !!

Red said...

Margy, I hope your car is not too sick. Sure is not cheap to fix them either. Car hospitals are expensice too.

magpie said...

I am trying to Holler !!

paula eagleholic said...

2 in our nest...what a site for sore eyes!!

paula eagleholic said...

Belle is in the middle, Lib is on the back, of course.

magpie said...

Ditto that Paula !
I got some pics will put them up in a bit !

You have good ears!

Red, please tell me you are watching !

paula eagleholic said...

Kewl, heard Lib fluffing those wings!

magpie said...

funny the still cam has more color to it

paula eagleholic said...

Always has, Margy.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Yeah for the live feed!! Good morning all!!

magpie said...

noisy there isn't it, someone building something? surprised they are sitting still for all that

Mits said...

I see them Margy...

magpie said...

all right young lady, Sissy, glad you showed up for our Birds !

magpie said...

Oh boy the audience is growing!
Adoring Fans, We. ♥

paula eagleholic said...

Looks breezy...I see feathers on Belle's head a blowin'

magpie said...

I guess it was Liberty had flown off for a half a minute...glad he came back !

paula eagleholic said...

How's the ankle, Sissy?

Red said...

Yes Margy, I'm watching too.☺☺

paula eagleholic said...

Pretty tree, REd.

magpie said...

Yes, I love that tree, too, Red! And always enjoying seeing your Snowman Wave, Paula !

Red said...

Everyone was talking about their Avitars being on Photobucket. Mine is on my home computer. They work fine from home too.

magpie said...

At least this takes my mind off the Car Hospital Bill....

Red said...

And they're staying a long time today. Good for everyone!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Off goes Belle to the right off the launchpad...

paula eagleholic said...

Red- they will work as long as the file isn't too big, it seems.

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, big entry with a huge stick!!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

My ankle is purple and swollen but it doesn't hurt very bad, so I can take the multicolors. I am so glad to see our beautiful eagle!!! Only saw one, missed it when both were there. But I will take what i can get. Oh, oh, there she is back. Is that Belle?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Big ole stick!!

Red said...

Back with big stick.

paula eagleholic said...

I thought Lib was gonna leave, but I think he was making sure he was out of the way!!

And he just took off of the back

paula eagleholic said...

That is one huge stick!

normabyrd said...

2 EAGLES IN OUR NEST!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

This is sooooo cool with sound!!

Mits said...

good job of nestorations:)

magpie said...

Sissy - Is your sister able to watch? This is Classic!

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, Norma!

Enjoy the show!!

Red said...

Paula, my tree is pretty big. I'm surprised the animation is working.

Mits said...

lol.....

paula eagleholic said...

Boy she is really working that stick!

paula eagleholic said...

How big is it, Red?

floralgirl said...

COOL- that bird is strong...

Mits said...

I emailed her, Margy....Suz is watching:)

normabyrd said...

WOW!---Those are sticks---THEY ARE LOGS!! ho!!---Made my day!!!

normabyrd said...

WOW!---Those are sticks---THEY ARE LOGS!! ho!!---Made my day!!!

magpie said...

Sure wish Megan would come in and take a break and see this! Belle works as hard as she does ! xoxo ♥

paula eagleholic said...

Guess she didn't like where that one was, moved it clean to the other side of the nest!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She just can't decide where to put the new furniture.

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, you can say that again, Norma!

:):)

Red said...

200 X 200 pixels. 8.10 KB

normabyrd said...

I can't remove my mistakes!---no trash can!!---

I meant to say----those aren't sticks---they are logs!!---I get so excited!!!!----(i'm easy)!

Red said...

Thats original size Paula.

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks, Red, wonder if the pixel size has something to do w/ it as well.

normabyrd said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDDIES!---I was over talking with SUZANNE!---Told her about your sprain--SISSY!---I knew it would turn 'purple/black'----didn't want to tell you yesterday!!---KEEP IT PROPPED UP!!
(i am older than you---so don't talk back!!)----ho!--love you!

floralgirl said...

Darn, gotta go back to work- so hard to walk away... hope she stays for a while, maybe Lib will bring in a stick. Enjoy the view!!

paula eagleholic said...

Is that static finally gone?

normabyrd said...

PAULA!!!----SEE!---The FEMALE has the last word as to where the sticks go!!!!----(aren't we smart)!

Mits said...

JUST A HUM NOW...

magpie said...

Good Work MITS - You take care of us!

Belle is sooooooo attentive, all eyes and ears....

("Where is my helper?" )

Mits said...

NICE OF HER TO SAY GOODBYE

paula eagleholic said...

Walked away, and now she's gone!

magpie said...

That was quite a squeal...I hope they start vocalizing more very soon!

Wow, What a Show!

Red said...

She did say goodbye didn't she?

Mits said...

she is very polite, Red:)

Mits said...

something is fooling around up by the mic?

movin said...



***A BEAUTIFUL***

***TUESDAY MORNiNG***

***TO YOU ALL***



C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Red said...

Mits that sound you hear by the mic is one I get when I'm sitting with bird feed in my hand and a bird lands on my cap. lol

magpie said...

Morning Jim!

did you see our visitors this morning? Belle was moving Logs around in the nest....(Norma's words!)

Now, what in the world was I doing before all this started?

Got to go find out I guess.

TTFN xo ♥

Mits said...

guess the bird is trying to "pick your brain":)Red.

paula eagleholic said...

Ooh, pretty sound, what was that Margy?

Mits said...

sounded like a car with a bad belt:)

normabyrd said...

Remember the NATURE show about the EAGLES pointed out the fact that the MALE decides where the sticks should be----We have watched BELLE---make the last move!!----

Red said...

Weird sound now. Almost like a jack hammer.

Mits said...

that male was making the last moves on that nest, because he was a long term tenant...she was the new bird in town

Red said...

Norma, I think they meant just the male with that pair. Not males in general. We know Belle decides at this nest.

Red said...

Maybe that noise has to do with the repairs they are making to the cam setup.

Mits said...

that is correct, Red...they did not make a generalization on all eagles, just him:)

Mits said...

now that would be nice:)

Mits said...

Although don't know what they would be drilling under the nest, its dirt there

magpie said...

Well, Paula, I heard a wren earlier, now it is those chattering wind-up teeth again! It't got me chucklin'. I agree with Red, I think, some kind of trimming device maybe? Now I hear the wren when it is quiet.

I guess we could play Name that Sound !

magpie said...

and you know, I think they were kind enough to stop while the Pair was in the nest! That's NCTC for ya'.
I remember what I was doing, getting ready to take a Panda Nap..

z z z z

Mits said...

yes, Margy I noticed that, which leads me to believe eagles are not in the area...I e-mailed Steve, maybe he can shed some light on the noise

magpie said...

And I suppose it could be something the farmers are doing close by.....

Okay, see ya' later.
This was a real fun morning with you guys Wish Everyone had been present and accounted for! xo ♥

paula eagleholic said...

ROFLMAO

Chattering wind up teeth!

paula eagleholic said...

Now it would be really cool to watch a guy in the nest, working on our cam!!

Red said...

Got Dishwasher rapairman coming. Will BBL.

NatureNut said...

Hi Everyone! Missed the birds---didn't put cam up as I thought it was too late for an AM visit. Guess they will be coming in at anytime now for nestorations! ☺
Margy sent me an email alert---THX!!

Mits said...

quiet at BWO today.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning everyone. Sissy called me earlier and I was able to see our eagle in the nest with the big water-finder stick. That was so awesome.

Hope all is well with everyone this morning! ☺

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle at BWO

paula eagleholic said...

How are you today, Sharon?

NatureNut said...

Wow, goose on Snowman cam looks like Marge Simpson! LOL

Red said...

Bet my dishwasher repair cost as much as Margy's car repair. All hospitals are expensive now.

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle at BWO, eating

Red said...

Who is trashing all the sticks from the BW osprey nest. Seems like there's fewer there every day.

Red said...

Testing

Red said...

More testing

Red said...

Much too small. lol

paula eagleholic said...

Love the pics, REd.

The eagles are trashing the BWO nest!

Won't be one left there soon!

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle back at BWO

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Paula, thanks for asking. I am getting a little better each day. Have to go back to Charlottesville on Thursday to see both surgeons and hopefully get a drain or 2 out. More will be revealed!

Lolly said...

Hello! Looks like I missed out on all the action this morning. Drat!

Have been straiting and getting ready to decorate. Have put some things out but have a lot to go.

Lolly said...

One eagle at BW.

Lolly said...

Back to work! BBL

magpie said...

Lolly : Your outside was all aglow last night: so now you can tell us later the inside is all aglow !

The only way not to miss everything at the nest is to park your hiney at the computer all day....but just imagine, when it gets near egg-laying, and hatching time, there will hours and hours of viewing pleasure!

Howdy everyone !
Red - a dishwasher is almost as important as a car! Sorry to hear it was pricey :(

magpie said...

Loretta- that's a good one Marge Simpson! And the Snowman hat is beginning to remind me of the ones the guards at Buckingham Palace wear!

magpie said...

Sharon: so good to see you, glad you saw the logging expedition!

I am still waiting to hear from the car doctor, RED...

magpie said...

Just heard Eagle at Maine.

I have figured out that the ISW sites, Pelican Harbor, Two Harbors and the others, slow my computer down..so I open up, get a quick look, and then have to shut them down again. Sigh...

Back to work here, (you know, housework)
Good afternoon to all...♥

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Hey all! I just fixed an address list and sent it out through eagletmomsters@yahoo.com. If you aren't on the list, let me know or if you don't get eagletmomster mail, let me know.

magpie said...

Eagle Alert !!

magpie said...

She is looking skyward....

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for hollering, emailing, etc, Margy

Mits said...

magpie said...

Holler Holler Holler

Mits said...

magpie said...

Nice Fly In - -

Megan - come inside!

Sharon, Sissy, get your eyes on!

Red said...

Thanks for hollering Margy.

Mits said...

paula eagleholic said...

Nestorations happening!

Mits said...

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, like the one with the dead leaves on it!

Red said...

I went for a few groceries early this afternoon and someone was really nice. Discovered a sack of powdered donuts. lol

ceil said...

magpie said...

Hope you are watching, Indiana Dave...will check your new pictures in a little bit..

Mits said...

yes there was a little pecking going on and that is a good thing:)

paula eagleholic said...

Sharon, glad you are feeling a bit better each day now.

My feed is freezing somewhat this afternoon..anyone else?

NatureNut said...

EaGLE aLERT---NESTORATIONS

Red said...

I think Belle pecked Lib two or three times as he walked by.

paula eagleholic said...

Ooops wha happened to Indiana Dave???

magpie said...

Good! The audience is growing ! ☺

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good Afternoon everyone.I goofed
so i will start over.I posted new
photo,one is the water shed and the
other is at the nest.It shows just
how far i am from it so a long lense helps.It is 227 yards from
the road to the nest tree.
Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

paula eagleholic said...

Aha...there you are Dave...are you watching???

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

PS. I also changed my little photo.

Dave

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Yes i am watching.HO!!!HO!!!HO!!!

Dave

paula eagleholic said...

She sure is checking out the right side...really looking around

magpie said...

Paula - when she looks out to the right like that, what direction is she facing? Pls and Thx

NatureNut said...

2nd bird @ 1 oclock

paula eagleholic said...

There she went

paula eagleholic said...

And back

NatureNut said...

1 out & back!

paula eagleholic said...

Margy, she is looking towards the treeline on the far side of the nest, as you look at the nest from the road.

Mits said...

oh-oh:(

paula eagleholic said...

Ruh Roh

paula eagleholic said...

That's all folks!

NatureNut said...

Oh No, cam messing up :.(

ceil said...

Rats I have lines and sound is terrible.

Mits said...

nice while it lasted...

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, stuck on Belle's butt feathers!

Mits said...

probably where it will stay til tomorrow.

ceil said...

I still see feet.

magpie said...

Okay Paula, thanks,
yep - we are kaplooie for the night, it was a nice visit...

Red said...

Hasn't been messing up this early before has it?

ceil said...

Great visit. Lib just stood there and hardly moved.

NatureNut said...

Think live cam froze---Still is showing them sorta---web more visible w/night light on.

ceil said...

Red I think it is very sensitive to the cold.

Mits said...

I think it is sensitive to everything:(

Red said...

Looks like the 30 second cam is still working.

ceil said...

Thanks Loretta. I forgot about the still. It is still pretty clear.

ceil said...

Belle is doing nestorations and Lib is standing there

deb said...

I got home just in time to see an eagle.

ceil said...

Deb if you look close at about 1:00 you will see Lib's feetsies. Glad you made it to see them.

NatureNut said...

Wonder if Lib isw napping back there??? ☺

deb said...

Thanks, Ceil, I found his talons!!

ceil said...

Probably. I have to leave. Keep a watch out on them.

Mits said...

nice long visit:)

Red said...

I'm beginning to think the still cam is in a loop. Looks like it's repeating.

Mits said...

I thought so too, red, but her head has been in a different position

Red said...

three or 4 different positions but still comes back to same one.

Mits said...

and it probably should be alot darker now.

Red said...

It was a good viewing day anyway. ☺☺☺☺

Mits said...

sunset 4:47p.m.

Mits said...

and if it has to loop, let it loop on the eagles:)

magpie said...

Well, moon and planets playing dodge ball with the clouds, but I have a nice view here. Venus and Jupiter going to do-si-do for a few days, you will find it interesting to watch their positions change, has a lot to do with the distance of their respective orbits...Venus will always be the brighter one, that helps, and you will find them at sunset, but not for too long - maybe 90 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

My car is in pieces at the shop, so I guess I ain't going anywhere tonight...better be ready by Wednesday, I need some Kid Time!

xo Good Evening Everybody....xo ♥

NatureNut said...

Strange things in Eagleland!!
If they're really there, they're gonna have to spend the night! ☺

paula eagleholic said...

OH yeah, it's looping. Rainbow at the top is the tell tale sign!

Catch ya'll later!
