Thank you all for your Anniversary wishes to me and Gene. It does not seem possible that 50 years have gone by. I truly believe that God meant for us to be life partners. We actually met the very first time in church. I think God liked what he saw and sprinkled us with His magic potient and the rest is History:)
We have had to postpone our celebration til next month. Too many obstacles got in our way:(

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SWEET DREAMS
PRAYERS FOR ALL

Almost there- got the tree undecorated(never as much enthusiasm or help available as the decorating part) and out the door...

magpie said...

floralgirl said...

I'm not a big country fan( I like the old country songs) but I love that song...pulls at the heartstrings...

Red said...

Yep, Alabama got beat so I have to go to bed now and cry. boo hoo.

floralgirl said...

Sorry, Red, I was rooting for Bama(my birthplace) they were favored to win, I believe....

magpie said...

magpie said...

Going to start getting dark at Finney's soon....wonder how long the birds will stay....

hedgie said...

Morning, fowl friends. Pretty afternoon at Finney nest with some fresh snow....and what a long visit! She looks like she's sitting with real purpose!

magpie said...

Hi Hedgie - !

Yes, they have been there for quite awhile...wonder if they will ever give that nest up to the Ospreys ...

hedgie said...

These are sea eagles, right Margy? Think they have claimed ownership.

Mits said...

GOOD SATURDAY A.M. EVERYONE...

Mits said...

The osprey chased them out of the nest last season, Lynn.

magpie said...

Sea Eagles - also called White-Tailed Eagles...just bailed...
Eagle with big something meal at BWO -

magpie said...

And now the Hoodies are at Finney's!

Mits said...

fish crow chased the sea eagles out of the nest at Finland

Mits said...

Mits said...

Mits said...

eagle with food at BWO

Mits said...

eagle poof at BWO, now I see a fishcrow....eagle took its food with him

magpie said...

The days seem to be getting longer at Finney's - - and on this side of the pond also !

Off to the post office soon...

Guess the eagle at BWO took that meal somewhere else ??

magpie said...

Squirrel perched in the nest at Maine !

magpie said...

Well forget that, shoulda known not to post a squirrel notice, they don't sit still long enough...

NatureNut said...

Coming back in on Park entrance road, a BIG turkey I've heard about crossed in front of me. Heard gobbles--he was joining his 1/2 dozen friends up in the woods.
Eagle had left the nest.

Mits said...

both eagles at BWO now...

normabyrd said...

2 BEAUTIFUL EAGLES----BWO!

Bob Quinn said...

Good morning and a belated Happy New Year! I've been to BW twice since the last time I logged on and didn't get much of anything either time. I went to Pickering Creek yesterday and saw an immature chasing an adult over a field. The quality of the photos is not great because it was late and the light was fading but it was still an interesting exchange:

hedgie said...

Your pics are great, Bob, as always!! Fading light doesn't affect your talented quality!

paula eagleholic said...

Bob, the pics are still cool!

Hopefully the sun will warm up our cam...

paula eagleholic said...

Lisa has started the Eagle cam weblog. She has an interesting aerial pic of the eagle nest vs osprey platform pic. Margy, you might like to see that.

Mits said...

awesome pics, Bob;)

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle pair gone at BWO, eewwiie has arrived, scouting for nestovers

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Everyone

I came in at a great time to see Bob's pictures. Bob the two having their talcons out in the air wow !
The one of the tired (I think) immature landing is just awesome.

I like seeing your; as you say (fading light) pictures anytime!
Thank you for sharing ( :

wvgal_dana said...

I've been all morning looking for webcams at zoos for elephants for my SIL. She does watch Wavelit cam doesn't do Pete's pond as much anymore.

wvgal_dana said...

Paula when I go to BWE aerial view I see the Osprey Platform. Where are the two eagle nest?

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry the one eagle nest ?

magpie said...

Great Pictures, Bob, as usual!
Was it a friendly or unfriendly exchange between the adult and the juvenile?

Paula: thanks for the tip, I just read the BWO web log and viewed the Google earth picture...that's exactly what I was wondering about, and what you had told me. Thank you.

Well, it is already time for a Panda Nap...I vow in the New Year to get a more regular sleep schedule!

TTFN xo to All...

paula eagleholic said...

Dana - Lisa didn't point specifically to the eagles nest....it is in the "eagle cam woods". I have seen the eagle cam nest...it is in the area where it says "cam woods".

wvgal_dana said...

I don't see where it says the eagles nest is in comparison to the Osprey Platform?

wvgal_dana said...

Ok Thank YOU I seen that on the map. I thought that would refer to the eagles nest. I was not sure that was it though. Got the spot ty.

NatureNut said...

Group w/their own kayaks came in an hour ago! Must be a polar bear club!!!

Speculation here is that perhaps our eagle is on eggs already due to the warmer weather we had as she's sitting low in the nest!Crossing our talons.

paula eagleholic said...

Wow Nature, that sounds really early for eggs. Has she ever had them this early?

magpie said...

Oh I forgot: Happy Eastbound Traveling wishes for Ceil, Mary Margaret and Jim... ☺

Brrrrrrr Loretta!
Williamsport MD, (Washington Co Md) had their Polar Bear Plunge on New Year's Day....

Great news about eggs there, hope it turns out to be true! You will need to set us up for a field trip, NatureNut.

xo Good Night.... z z z

wvgal_dana said...

Loretta what is her record; ie first year how many eggs and hatch etc.

NatureNut said...

I hope there are no eggs yet. This is only the 2nd time for us to see this pair & nest.(Same pair was probably at another nest further away & hard to view in the past.) I guess if she is not constantly sitting there, probably no eggs. Time will tell.

Bob, beautiful pics of that encounter!!

Bob Quinn said...

To answer Magpie's question (who may be Panda napping by now) I'm guessing it was not a friendly exchange. Neither one had food in it's talons but I'd bet it started over food.

paula eagleholic said...

Bob - I love the way you caught the juvie yelling at the adult!

wvgal_dana said...

turkey vulture at BWO

magpie said...

Bob - just viewed your pictures again (after Panda Nap) - thanks for your answer. They really don't look very friendly. I really like the way you captured the wing action on 6, 7, 8, and I love #10 - and the Deer: that is such an incredible pose and capture. Thanks again for all the beauty and wonder ! ☺

magpie said...

ISS Fans:
Have a good flyover Sunday morning, Berkeley County time is 0640 - 0643...70-degrees with a negative 3.8 - skies should still be dark enough to see that....will transit WNW - Hope Paulleo is watching !

Monday not as bright, and Tuesday brighter right at 6 am our time here!

TTFN - enjoy your North, South, East, West, Midwest, Southwest, Central, and Overseas Afternoons (hope I didn't miss anyone...)~ xoxo ♥

hedgie said...

OMG...watching Sleepless in Seattle...can't believe it's been almost 16 yrs....Tom Hanks looks like a baby!!! Sure Meg Ryan will, too. Remember when she got her start on As The World Turns.

glo said...

New thread. Steve must have thought you all didn't much like blogging on the old one.

Come on over

Costume Lady said...

Yes, Lynn, I do remember her on that show and If I recall correctly, she wasn't very good at that time. A lot of the stars that are doing well in movies now, got their start on Soap Operas. I have watched Young and the Restless since it's conception. I have even had Gene to stop the Eagle Express so that I could watch Young and Restless:)
