BIG TIME EAGLE ALERT

OUR NEST FOR LATE LUNCH

Mema Jo said...

Belle is eating & Lib is working!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Thanks Deb. Wonder what they are eating?

Mema Jo said...

I was over checking out other cams & almost missed this - I would never forgive myself!

Hi Sharon & Deb.......
Hope some more are watching......

Just look at our Mr Lib lol

deb said...

Looks like fish to me, easy to eat and no feathers or fur flying.

Off goes LIb.

floralgirl said...

Hmmm.... what's for dinner??

floralgirl said...

Yep, think it's fish..

deb said...

Whatever it is, she is sure eating it fast.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Megan! Ed loved your card!!!!

Answered your email Sharon!

floralgirl said...

Sure is a nice clear picture.
Darn, got to run to school to meet with Japanese teacher about a trip-
happy viewing ...c u later....

Mema Jo said...

We need to have some way to tell Belle that it is almost time for Egg Laying.

I sure hope our weather stays good!

floralgirl said...

Hi Jo, bye Jo! Glad he liked it, I thought it was funny!!

Mema Jo said...

Did you all ZOOOM in on that food...

Mema Jo said...

Makes sure she gets every piece
Needs to clean her beak now

Oh My checking out egg well

deb said...

I forgot about the zooming feature, so I missed it. Time for a little nest work.

deb said...

My sound is sure staying on good. Now I probably jinxed it.

deb said...

eagle at BWE

Mema Jo said...

CU later Megan

You think we could be honor by seeing at least 1 poop shoot

Mema Jo said...

My sound is the same as yours
It has not stopped
I was just wishing for some Eagle calls

deb said...

More food, boy, she must be hungry, took it right away from him.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

DO YOU ALL SEE THAT FISH - IT IS HUGE. You would think they are feeding babies already! Beautiful talking to each other!

deb said...

I am taping, so got the big fish. I hope.

Mema Jo said...

I DON'T BELIEVE IT
EVEN THOUGH I SAW IT

Oh Ho That sure is a sign of
bonding... She might be in for the
night........

deb said...

I got the fish, but will have to edit it, as it is too long. Eagle at BWE is in the nest cup.

deb said...

Darn, BWE left already,

Mema Jo said...

They will tease us to death!!!!!
Getting into the egg cup & then off they go!

Belle still eating
She had been very intent in looking around - I guess Lib is up on the limb

You all remember all those (5) fish that Lib brought in for his 3 little eaglets?

deb said...

Back at BWE. My sound is going in and out again. She ate the whole fish, no left overs for lib.

Mema Jo said...

BWE has returned

Mema Jo said...

Belle is hanging over the edge at 2:00

WOW I just saw the most slow beautiful
fly out by Belle.... Just beautiful

Mema Jo said...

BWE - I keep hitting F5 to refresh.

Mema Jo said...

Well, BWE is still there in the nest We'll see what goes on when the night light comes on...
MTBR

Mema Jo said...

Time for me to take a break
The visit was great - anxious to see the
Big Fish on your tape, Deb

Taking Hubby out to eat for b-day!

BBL

Mits said...

hello....was down in the dungeon doing laundry....didn't see the last visit, but thanks for pics, Sharon

Mits said...

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

You are very welcome Mits! ☺

Mits said...

I could hear them talking from the other room

deb said...

eagles our nest

Mits said...

EAGLES IN NEST

Mits said...

of course then sound went down...

carolinabeachmom said...

Hi Sharon, Mits Deb and Jo. What a way to come home and start the weekend; two beautiful eagles in our nest!

Mits said...

BWE is really getting that egg cup ready

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey Helen, is that your sweet little Maggie you haae on your blog space? What a doll and that smile could brighten anyone's day.

Mits said...

hello, Candy

Mits said...

yes, Candy...it is Maggie, big day tomorrow, her Dad is plunging into the Chesapeake Bay for Special Olympics of Maryland

carolinabeachmom said...

I wish someone would take a hammer to that microphone or give it a shot of adrenelin.

carolinabeachmom said...

Brrrrr. I hope all goes well.

Mits said...

Lib popped in with another stick

deb said...

Lib is back, with a stick.

Mits said...

both eagles at BWO now

deb said...

I knew I shouldn't have said it was working so good today.

Mits said...

me too, Candy:)

deb said...

BWE looks pretty comfortable!

Mits said...

wonder how Maine nest keeps there sound up and running?

carolinabeachmom said...

I wonder if BWE will stay the night?

Mema Jo said...

I cam back!!!!

I can't believe they are here again!
Aren't we Blessed today!

Yepper! We need to keep our eye on
The Lady at BWE - glad they have a night light!

I really do need to get ready to take this b-day boy to dinner..... Oh My
What to Do!!!

Mits said...

she spent the better part of the afternoon there at BWE yesterday, Candy, then left around 6:00p.m.

Mits said...

BWE keeps jumping around looking in the nest cup

Lolly said...

Hi! Was in the study cleaning windwons, decided to sit and check the nest, two eagles! And one cozy one at BWE!

Mema Jo said...

I wish that Belle would race Lady BW
this year......... lol

Lolly said...

LOL windwons are windows!

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the email pic Mits or I would have missed this one..

carolinabeachmom said...

`Oh oh, They are looking at each other very intently.

deb said...

I wonder if she is tweaking the egg cup to get it just right. Too bad they can't have more bandwidth to get a faster refresh.

Lolly said...

See what you mean about Lady BW looking in the egg cup.

Mits said...

this is just wishful thinking on my part, but hoping she is feeling eggy...

Mema Jo said...

Hi Lolly, Candy Mits and Sharon!

I am sure Lisa is watching her gal sitting in the egg well!!! It's really not too early for them!

Mema Jo said...

Hit the F5, Deb!

We are all going to go Awwwwwwwwww
if she flys out!

Mema Jo said...

What's Lib & Belle trying to prove?
It's like I'll move if you do!

BWE is smack dab right in the middle of
the egg well!!!!

Mema Jo said...

Keep posting what you're seeing
I am off to Olive Garden

BBL

Lolly said...

Look at the color on the back of Lady BW.

Mits said...

wish I were going to Olive Garden:(

deb said...

F5 is a Windows thing, Jo. I right click, hit reload and then it only changes every once in a while.

deb said...

Me, too. I haven't been there in a long time.

carolinabeachmom said...

I sure wish I was going to the Olive Garden too. Jo, you have so many birthdays and family gatherings, you lucky person.

Lolly said...

I'm thinking she is feeling "eggy" or close to it!

Mits said...

Lisa says it can happen anytime between now and end of the month

Mits said...

refreshing BWE doesn't help much, it still runs thru its 30 seconds for me

carolinabeachmom said...

Looks to me like Lady BW has settled in for the long haul. Can we all hope?

Mits said...

AAARRGGHHH...WISH OUR SOUND WOULD STAY ON:(

Mits said...

geese are flying by

deb said...

Same thing here, Helen. Sometimes I can get it to jump to the next picture earlier than the 30 sec., but then I have to wait longer for the next picture.

Mits said...

poof Lib

Mits said...

frustrating isn't it Deb???

deb said...

Lib is back.

Mits said...

sounds like people talking right underneath the nest

Mits said...

poof Lib

deb said...

It was a pretty fly out, too bad I wasn't taping it.

Lolly said...

I am off to accomplish a few more tasks. BBL Drat! No Olive Garden for me.

carolinabeachmom said...

sister calling BB

Red said...

El Omega Mexican place for me tonight. Haven't been there in ages.

Mits said...

poof Belle

Mits said...

@#%$##$% blog is making me sign in every other post:(...GRRRRRRR!

Mits said...

close your ears, Red...maybe HP going on

Red said...

HP is good.

Mits said...

EAGLE BACK

Mits said...

poor Lib, looking for leftovers.

Red said...

Big Rig Steve's truck must have had serious problems.

Mits said...

POOF

Mits said...

He sure has been having serious problems, Red

Mits said...

eagles at NBG

Mits said...

night light on at BWE

deb said...

It is getting pretty dark at BWE, sure hope she doesn't take off on us.

Red said...

I thought she was going to stay last night but she left around 6 PM

Mits said...

I know Deb, but she did take off yesterday, when it was dark

deb said...

Both eagles at BWE

Mits said...

both are at BWO now...this is what happened last night both were there, then both left

deb said...

One gone.

hedgie said...

Good evening...?????? Not feeling like it's very good...this whole day has been a bummer....when leaving to meet daughter I got out of truck at end of driveway to get mail and found scads of roofing nails in my driveway. Picked up at least 30....I called to file a police report, and they sent out a deputy...he picked up a bunch more that I had missed...Oh, young eyes are good!!

hedgie said...

Olive Garden sounds good! And so does Red's Mexican place!
BWE looks like she's settling in....?? No one home our nest!

hedgie said...

BWE THINKS THEY HAVE AN EGG!!!!

deb said...

We are hoping, Lynn, at BWE, just watching and waiting to see what she does.

NatureNut said...

BWE may have an egg---Lisa is saying to watch for a roll!

deb said...

Wow, I just checked a few minutes ago to see if they had posted anything, because I suspected something had happened. I had to refresh to get the message and see the picture.

NatureNut said...

BWE correction-Lisa said they maybe saw an egg roll - has pic.
Our nest MT--got on here too late.

hedgie said...

Got a nice invitation from Kevin, Mits!!!! Glad to hear that the goal was reached...way to go team!

Mits said...

cool, Lynn;)

Mits said...

Nest Update

01/23/09:
Egg Alert!
We believe we have an egg; we're just waiting for a clear shot of it.

Here is a photo from earlier that appears to show her rolling the egg with her talon.

Mits said...

I saw that very shot when it was happening, but didn't think I saw an egg

Mits said...

he is very happy the team has done so well.....updates will be on WBALTV.com....the Super Plungers have already started today....they go in once an hour for 24 hours...there was a barge there today breaking up ice.

hedgie said...

BWE THINKS THEY HAVE AN EGG!!!!

hedgie said...

Weird....blogger cop reposted what I had put in 10 min, ago!

Mits said...

blogger cop has been giving me a fit lately

hedgie said...

I would think the barge would stay on scene and keep breaking!!!! Otherwise, it's liable to refreeze by morning!

Red said...

Is BW cam hung or is she just being still.

Red said...

OK I saw head move.

Mits said...

I'm sure it will still be there tomorrow....Lynn

deb said...

I remember watching this nest last year and thinking it was froze. It seems like she hardly moves, but we miss a lot in 30 sec.

Red said...

I can't imagine jumping into water that cold. It would take me a year to thaw out

Mits said...

she is very still

Mits said...

Red, think there might be some medicine for the plungers, if you get my drift....hubby didn't plunge last year and he was taking alot of medicine:)

Mits said...

It is a very emotional day for all of us.

deb said...

I can't imagine how cold the water is. The coldest I have done is the Missouri River in May, January gives me the chills just thinking about it!

Mits said...

I bet Lisa is very excited:)

floralgirl said...

Good grief, I was only gone for a little while...possible egg at BWE, sounds like a lot of excitment...
Olive Garden- that really sounds good- hope Jo brings us a doggie bag...

Red said...

With my circulation system I have trouble staying warm even on a warm day. lol

Mits said...

my brother-in-law did it last year, did not recognize him when he came out of the bay....had some strange color to him

deb said...

I bet she is, too. I e-mailed her and told her we were all watching over here.

hedgie said...

What kind of strange color, Mits? Blue???
I'm with you, Red....I have poor circulation, too...Tea in my veins instead of blood, I think!
Some warming medicine would taste good, and warm up the insides, but don't think it would help much on the outside!!

hedgie said...

Megan....is your daughter going to Japan???

Mits said...

yes Lynn, blue, gray, purple...think he has learned his lesson...no medicine before the plunge

Mits said...

Jo will be excited to, when she comes home from dinner

floralgirl said...

There's a Mason update, it's long, so I won't post it- also a nice article on Mason in the Chronicle-www.shepherdstownchronicle.com

Mits said...

FROM LISA.....

Thanks to all the Momsters! Hopefully we'll get a peek soon. She sure looks like she's incubating.

deb said...

I would want a wet suit on! How long do they stay in the water? Do they jump in or walk in?

floralgirl said...

I hope so, Lynn- met with her Japanese teacher to discuss details of a trip to Japan this summer- have to figure out fundraising and other details.

hedgie said...

What a wonderful opportunity for her!!

Mits said...

some people walk in and out, but you know guys, they try to out do each other and get on the cameras

Mits said...

that would be awesome, Megan....

NatureNut said...

Last I saw Ms. Hummer, the one egg had 2 holes in it. I don't see a date for a 2nd hatch & she's sitting on the nest! ?????

deb said...

That would be so exciting, Megan. Will it be a school tour or will she stay with a Japanese family?

deb said...

That is definetly an egg!

Red said...

Yup. Just saw the egg and captured the phoot.

deb said...

Two good views of the egg, loading them on Nest pictures soon.

deb said...

Lisa has the picture posted, also. Mine are loaded on Nest Pictures.

Mits said...

yeppers, sure is:)

Lisa M said...

Hi guys!!

Thanks for your support and photos!! Here's to a great season for all!

NatureNut said...

Got pic of BW egg, but can't find Lisa's em address---ARRGGHH

Mits said...

Congrats, Lisa:)

Lisa M said...

Click on "Submit Photos" on the cam page for the address.

I'd post it here, but I don't want to get spam.

floralgirl said...

First egg of the season, cool!!
Trip is not thru school, they won't do any oversea trips becuase of liability. Her teacher is from Japan, and adores her students, and they adore her- it's a small class, only 8 kids.

Mits said...

wow....Megan, that is even better, more personal

deb said...

Yes, Lisa, Congratulations! It is so exciting to have the season underway!

deb said...

That will be a wonderful experience for her, Megan.

Mits said...

Update from MOOSECAM.....

January 23rd, 2009

Alfalfa left last Saturday night and the cow and calf left yesterday morning. So the web cam is now off for the season unless some one returns. Thanks for watching!

carolinabeachmom said...

Wow just got back on to see if Lady Bw was in her nest and read that she has become a proud MaMa! How exciting for Lisa and the Blackwater gang. Saw your pic of it DEB. Nice shot. And the season begins. :)

Red said...

I went to Japan for a week to help solve a computer problem in 1974. Really enjoyed it.

NatureNut said...

Put my EGG on blog--Yippee!

Off for chicken noodle soup--how appetizing--LOL!

hedgie said...

Good egg shots, gang!
Loretta, the 2nd hummer egg isn't viable...boohoo.

deb said...

My only ventures out of the country are Mexico and Canada and not far into either country. Mexico shouldn't even count, I only went to Tiajuana (?).

hedgie said...

Nice call from Margy checking on my nails!!! She's home and will be on here soon!

deb said...

I was so excited about the egg, I forgot about the Mason update. It is a good update, he is making so much progress!

deb said...

You are lucky you didn't get one in your tires, Lynn. I have had 2 nails in the last couple of years, with none before that.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

deb said...

I hope you see lots of eagles tomorrow, Dave!

Mema Jo said...

25 min wait at Olive Garden - Went next door to Applebee's and had a great meal!
I certainly am surprised with what all that has been going on in my absence!
I wish our Paula could pop in for just a minute! Emailed Lisa to congratulate her as I do every year - Told I was very happy expecially since I know that means NCTC NEST IS NEXT!
Refresh my memory - Did the Ft St Vrain have their egg before us?
HO HO Lynn! I also got an invite to the watch those crazy PolarBearPlungers from Kevin..
Going to go read about Mason..

floralgirl said...

whoa- sorry-had to walk away- sudden wicked blinding headache and nausea-gotta lay down...

deb said...

I got one, too, but I won't be able to attend. ;)

BWE eagle is up.

deb said...

Megan, I hope you are okay!

deb said...

I thought of Paula, too, Jo. We all had so much fun last year hoping the egg would come before the cam shut down for the night.

Colorado eggs came the end of Feb.--26 or 27, sometime in the night or early morning.

Eagle info for 2008

She is working on the new one for this year, I looked today for it.

magpie said...

magpie said...

Oh Man, BWE is gorgeous !

Mema Jo said...

Deb & all: according to the chart NBG could be before us.. I knew of 2 and I
guess BWE and NBG were those.

deb said...

Oklahoma is in there, too, Jo. Last year Feb 1, 3, 5 & 7.

Mema Jo said...

Judy may put her 2009 chart on the ME Forum.... I'll try to take a look.

Mason's update was very encouraging.
Still need to Light Candles

Need more glowing candles

Mema Jo said...

OK - Oklahoma too - Their cam went down I think before anyone could be sure how
of the hatchings - or they just didn't have a clear view of the nest. I remember there were 4 eggs!

Mema Jo said...

Megan Keep your head down!

deb said...

Cape Coral Osprey should be soon, too. Last year was Jan. 30.

magpie said...

Nice bunch of deer just crossing through at Pix PA

magpie said...
