Mits said...

Mits said...

lol....Sharon....Lisa from BWO was happy to see it...I told her the same thing, they look much calmer now

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Such a dreary day in Bluefield.

grannyblt said...

Morning all. Planning to stay home today so maybe the eagles will be visible on the cams today. I may have mentioned this but I am still excited about seeing THREE eagles in the 'feather' while looking for ducks on Sunday.
Yesterday I went on a bus day trip to Pittsburgh and the Phipps conservatory for the Christmas flower show. It was just beautiful. I never knew there were so many colors of amaryllis. Then we went to a light display at Hartwood--really fantastic.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, grannyblt, sounds like you are enjoying the season!

Mits said...

note from Lynn's daughter....

Dear Mrs Kalis,

My mom wanted me to let you know that her internet sattelite is iced over and she will be on blogging when she gets de-iced.
Thanks,

Have a good day!

Carolyn Riner Smith

Mits said...

I love doing that kind of stuff during the holidays

Red said...

Good Morning everyone. we're having another wet gloomy day here. I think we are caught up on the rainfall now. I enjoyed our visitors this morning. I was just lurking in the shadows watching. lol

paula eagleholic said...

Cool, did you see the new pics on BWO...brought in another mammal with a long tail...possibly a muskrat!

paula eagleholic said...

Norma, I also sent you an email with the list...can you open it?

paula eagleholic said...

Whoops, Norma, I forgot I couldn't get it to send last night...check your mail in a few minutes...

normabyrd said...

Have had a couple cancellations today!!----Now I have no excuse for not getting things done here this morning!!

paula eagleholic said...

Norma, you have mail.

normabyrd said...

HELEN---One of my grand-kids didn't want to have anything to do with talking to SANTA!!!---no way!!----(denies it now) ho!

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle ♀ and ♂ Buds - glad to hear that many of you saw at least a few moments of beauty at OUR NEST

Its great that the video and still cams stayed up through the lousy weather...

Very early this morning (like around 5 our time) I saw the male ring-necked pheasant at the Scottish wildlife site, then two red squirrels showed up and were playing ring around the feeder. Of course the pheasant left then.

Hope each of you has a great day.
It's a blessing that the temperatures warmed up in this area. ☺

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' RED!!---Do you have your CHRISTMAS SHOPPING done??---Sun is trying to shine!!----Wish this weather would decide---snow or shine????

paula eagleholic said...

Norma, they say it is supposed to be sunny later...no sign here yet of that...still foggy.

paula eagleholic said...

And Mits, they have your mating pic up at BWO also.

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle at PH

Mits said...

I see that Paula:)

Mits said...

moose and deer on moosecam

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Mits, where is Ceil going?

Mits said...

They are going back out to Oregon to visit her son...taking the train this time.

magpie said...

Sharon - how are things going? Are you still back at work?

Sissy - have we gotten a report about your doctor's appointment a couple of days ago?

Moose looks fabulous ! Sun shining on his antlers now...☺

magpie said...

Lone turkey at Pix Pa...

Note on the Norfolk cam says they will be up and down today due to maintenance.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Yes, Magpie, I am still working but only a few hours a day for now. Sissy is at mother-in-law's today. They told her they think she may have torn a ligament but it has started healing. Gave her a brace to wear.

magpie said...

I can't sign onto the Eaglet Yahoo group... ????

Was going to try to email Movin' Jim, but I am not being recognized. Maybe someone else on here can try to check on him sometime today?

deb said...

Good morning, everyone. I just went and unburied the birdfeeder from the snow plow, not sure where I will put it so it is safe and birds can still use it. It is chilly, but headed to 19 today!

paula eagleholic said...

Magpie - he's alive and kicking...got an email from him this morning...

magpie said...

Thanks, Sharon...slowly but surely....you all take care and make each other behave !

Lots to do today - just like everyone else I guess...

TTFN....
xo

Mits said...

starting to get light out at Lake Washington

deb said...

I got an e-mail from him today and he has been lighting candles, Helen. They got a lot of rain yesterday, wonder if he had internet problems.

deb said...

Oops, wrong person, that was for Margy!

Mits said...

yep, noticed he had been lighting his candles....think he also uses IE7, maybe problems there

magpie said...

Thanks, Paula!
I was getting worried..

Shutting down all my programs and browsers now.

Headed to Morgan County.

xo Good Day to All ! ☺ ♥

Mits said...

mating again at BWO

Costume Lady said...

I was reading earlier that Microsoft is going to send a PATCH to fix the problem that IE7 users has been having. I have been having problems for quite awhile now and suddenly my 'puter is working like new. I wonder if I have been patched up automatically and that is what my problem has been all along. WHAT DO YOU THINK RED?? (knock on wood!)

Mits said...

just checked, doesn't look like that patch has come thru here yet, last update for IE7 and WXP was 12-10-08

Red said...

I don't think the patch is out yet Wanda. I can't explain why suddenly your puter is running like new. Maybe someone has been using your computer and finally quit. I run IE version 6. If you have been using version 7 that could explain some of your problems. Version 7 had many problems.

Red said...

Several Experts, including PC Magazine recommended uninstalling IE version 7 and going back to version 6. I did that and have not had any problems.

Mits said...

i've never really had any problems with IE7

Red said...

You are lucky Helen.

Costume Lady said...

I think the GRINCH has been hiding in my 'puter and MEGAN brought hime out.:)

Red said...

I would get locked up several times daily. Also I could try to access a web site and it would sit there and search and search and finally say the site did not exist. But I could try again and find it the first time.

Mema Jo said...

I knew I could find lots of sunshine once I signed on! GOOD MORNING!

Norma - try to open the email I just sent. Use what you want

Red said...

Sometimes I would be on a site and suddenly get a message that an unknown error occurred and it would just kick me out.

Mema Jo said...

Big Bold Scarface on the Moose cam
Puppy's are very frisky again this am
I love Lake WA site - going to be a great view & the night light was just right last evening.

I do so love raw cookie dough -

Hope you all get your IE figured & it stays up without many problems....

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Lord have mercy, have ya'll been watching Lun Lun and Luney?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She has drug him all over the place. They are in Buta's den now.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

What a great view. He is nursing and they are right at the viewing glass. I would give my eye teeth to be there!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

He is gonna be able to walk on that surface, he is sure trying.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Lun Lun is really restless, she paced forever with him in her mouth, dragging him on the floor, took him up on Buta's stoop, thought she was gonna kill him for sure.

Mema Jo said...

OK BIRD ID PLEASE

Mema Jo said...

Where did all my Birder Friend's ears go....... Great sound from the
Live Cam

Mema Jo said...

I just don't think it is Lib or Belle

Sounds though like it is right at the cam

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning Sissy! I just hope we
are privileged to see Luney walking before it goes off the air!

Mema Jo said...

Sissy - he is adorable
Like you say he should be able to DIG IN & GO!

Mema Jo said...

Hope they don't keep him out of the pic

Mits said...

sorry Jo, was getting dressed didn't hear it

Mema Jo said...

That's ok

Luney is putting on a good show

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

This is a real treat, getting to watch them.

Mema Jo said...

Lun Lun got him!
He was starting to Push & Pull with those little paws!

Mema Jo said...

OK I have some of those little last minute things to do so I must go out & about........ Maybe I can make some grinch's SMILE!

Mema Jo said...

Oh Yes! This evening I am going to pull a Sharon & go to the 8th grade band concert to see my Drummer Boy! I'm excited!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Here she goes with him again.

deb said...

Eagle BWE!

Mits said...

lol....luney is going to get seasick

deb said...

OMG, I just turned on the panda cam and had heart failure, poor little baby!

Mits said...

pretty eagles

deb said...

Both eagles at BWE now.

deb said...

At least they are just going in circles now and not up on the tower thing again.

paula eagleholic said...

Testing out the bowl again at BWE

deb said...

Something near our microphone.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She is literally wearing the fur off of him. Bless his little heart.

Costume Lady said...

I have been watching Lun Lun and XL too, that is hysterical. She has dragged his little butt all over the place. You can see his "drag path" in the gravel. I guess it is her way of taking her baby for a walk :):)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Here she goes pacing with him again.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

You're right Wanda, I hadn't even noticed. He is gonna have a sore behind.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Wouldn't it be a great day to be at Atlanta!!!!!

deb said...

Both eagles back at BWE!

Costume Lady said...

Those little legs just aren't gonna do it today...they are probably too sore to walk on :)

hedgie said...

Good afternoon friends. I am de-iced!! Finally.....terrible to be unable to get on when I want to!
Caught up on everything except momsters' mail....cookie dough is chilling, oven is preheating....Lun just carried our baby away, but he was UP ON HIS KNEES for a second before she toppled him over!! So much fun w/ Lun and lil Luney!!
Brief visit from me....gotta grab a bite to eat and then start baking....such a tedious process...can't leave kitchen for a minute when there's cookies in the oven!
BBL!

deb said...

He got two legs over, but how to get the back legs!

deb said...

I have to get the snow plow mess cleaned up, get dog food, etc. BBL

BWE eagles are getting lots done! Nice to see them working together, the male seems to be doing a lot. Oops, one gone.

magpie said...

Bird sound at OUR NEST is a red-bellied woodpecker...

magpie said...

That eagle at BWE is a beauty, sorry Mr. Eagle, should say handsome one if it is a HE...the colors at that nest, are great.

Don't work too hard, DEB....

paula eagleholic said...

Snow is just about gone from our nest...

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle at BWO

BWE MT

magpie said...

Eagle at BWO - looking backwards, it is a funny view.

Norfolk cam still down...

paula eagleholic said...

2 eagles now at BWO...looks like one is eating...

Mema Jo said...

Popping in for a second -
Thanks Margie for the ID
Sounded like a woodpecker hammering when he first started......

Enjoy your day everyone - Mine is going very well..........

Mema Jo said...

SUN IS SHINNING IN MY VALLEY

Good time for our couple to come in and fluff up the nest!!

magpie said...

He looked funny turned around, didn't he Paula?


Ooops just heard gunshots on the NCTC cam...must be surrounding property somewhere, blackpowder season in til the end of the year in WV...

magpie said...

And now, two at BWO -

How far apart are the Osprey platform and the Eagle Nest ?

magpie said...

Hi Mema! We have sun in Berkeley County too ☼

By the time I answered your birdie question, it might have been a different bird!

Those eagles at BWO looked very proud and strong...

paula eagleholic said...

Magpie - maybe 1/2 mile or so...not too far...if you can see the treeline in the back of the BWO Pic...the nest is to the right in that tree line

magpie said...

We need to send all this warmth and sunshine over to Glo!

magpie said...

Paula:

I knew you would have the answer! Thank you...

magpie said...

All kinds of chirping at the nest -
time for the evening roosts, sounds like starlings there now.

Time for me to leave, Mtg at work and staff Christmas party, personally I would rather stay here and party. Hope the Eagles show up for you.

Good Afternoons and Evenings to Everyone.

xo

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle alert!!

Mits said...

it had been fooling around with the mic before it came in

Mits said...

paula eagleholic said...

I think it's Lib

wvgal_dana said...

I'm watching the wonders of beauty that would be "our nest".

Mits said...

poof

paula eagleholic said...

And off from 10ish....looked like went up into the tree

Mits said...

other one still by the mic

wvgal_dana said...

Heard the call from one of them. I think our cam is "well like".

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry Hi Everyone

Paula you got a "rockn" snowman there gal ( :

Mits said...

going to knock the cam down, really shook

Mits said...

back in

paula eagleholic said...

back again from the right...brought a stick I think

Mits said...

looking for help

Mits said...

straight up takeoff

paula eagleholic said...

Rats, my live feed froze...eagle gone.

Mits said...

think it is still nearby, Paula

hedgie said...

Okay, I'm back. 6 dozen peanut butter cookies done! Still gotta clean up the mess, but needed to rest and catch up on you all!
Will mix up dough for my spice crisps later--it has to be fridged for 24 hrs. Youngest is doing my Spritz for me....just can't stir/beat that stiff dough anymore. I gave her the cookie press a couple of years ago, and she and her jubby do a great job! My grandma would be proud.
No sign of CC, but somebody is playing hide and seek in the bamboo! Lun, I guess.

hedgie said...

Hope she didn't hide baby!!

Mits said...

nice clear pic, and finally a calm day with no breeze

hedgie said...

I got a bunch of updates from MS....wonder if that is the patch/packet they are talking about?! There had to have been about 30 things they installed through automatic updates.

Mits said...

I'm sure that is it, Lynn....

paula eagleholic said...

I think my feed is frozen solid :(

Mits said...

is your sound on Paula?

paula eagleholic said...

Sound is up, can't hear a thing...usually if I zoom in can see something moving...nothing here. probably have to shutdown, but not doing that tonight....

wvgal_dana said...

I talked with Steve. He said if one of the eagles was on top of cam. We would be seeing some part of it wings, etc. Because there is only about 6" for it to stand on.
He did say it could be on a nearby limb and the mic is picking it up. He is going to watch the comments for infomation on when we hear eagle at microphone. He is going to look through scope then to see what eagle is doing at or near cam.

paula eagleholic said...

Eagles at Norfolk!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Geesh Dana - might be easier to email him

That mic picks up pretty good.

Mits said...

wow, Paula, both are there...they have moved the view slightly

hedgie said...

That's interesting info, Dana. 6"--wow...not much space for our eagles to stand on!! Steve will have to stay on the computer continuously, won't he? LOL!

Mema Jo said...

Popping in again! No movement on the live feed EXCEPT lower right corner -
Borris!!!

I missed out eagles
Was getting ready to get out of here for the 6:00 band concert with gs.

Talk to you all later this evening.

Mits said...

Mits said...

wvgal_dana said...

Costume Lady said...

AWWW...I guess I got home too late to see our beauties:( I'll catch them in the morning:)
Did Lun ever get settled with baby XL? Couldn't stop laughing about her dragging that little butt all over hell's half acre. LOL

paula eagleholic said...

Backatcha, Dana

paula eagleholic said...

Catch ya'll latero!!

hedgie said...

Wanda, didn't see any settling when I looked!!! Poor kid won't know where he belongs!

deb said...

I am back home, wore myself out--funny how a head cold can take so much energy away. I went to two stores and, of course, the river. I put two pictures up, have more, but need to check them all over--good eagle day!

Costume Lady said...

Lynn, he did look sooo confused when she would put him down..like "what do I do now?".
It's hard to believe they are going to take him away from us, soon:(

Mits said...

DEB,,,, they are beautiful....you really should be sending these to weatherundergrond photos

deb said...

I looked at how to register, so I will get it done soon. Glad you like them. I really wish I knew what that eagle was looking at!

ceil said...

Debs pictures are beautiful. Such a pretty shot of the eagle. Lucky Deb

deb said...

I see you all had some nest action and microphone noise! I still need to finish putting away dog food, etc. BBL

Mits said...

2 moose on moosecam

deb said...

I am lucky, they are so beautiful! I couldn't find the swans, so hope they are around after all this cold weather.

Red said...

Did I hear a jet airplane on the cam mic or am I hearing things?

Mits said...

yes, Red, they fly by at times.
