Good Morning everyone. Make it a good day. Prayers for MeMa Jo, Debs uncle, continued healing from "Bluefield multiple moments" wondering about Paula's Mom, but may have missed something there.
I am glad the Holidays are over even though they always contain so many special times..its good to feel a little closer to back to normal as well.

I never feel normal. I don't want to be normal. LOL.

Watching for that cam to come up.

There are new Glo's Glimpses and For The Love of Eagles posts if anyone needs an eagle fix while waiting for the cam :).

MONDAY UPDATE FROM ATLANTA....

Monday, January 5
I have been away from the giant pandas for about two weeks and upon my return I see the cutest little cub, who is now walking! He really has gotten bigger and his mobility has increased quite a bit as mentioned in the previous updates. One other detail that has changed is that the nest box was removed from the birthing den. Now that Xi Lan and Lun Lun will sleep anywhere, there is no longer a need for the nest box. So it was removed to make it easier to clean the den.

CUTE PIC OF HIM IN HAMMOCK

deb said...

A little better every day, Norma. He is moving his left ankle and starting to get some improvement in his right leg. He is 71. No update yet today.

Mits said...

DEB, have you heard any updates on the KENT CAM?

normabyrd said...

Any news from JO!----Bless her heart---I truly understand that coughing 'stuff'!---Once it starts-----WOW---makes you feel weak all over!!

deb said...

Nothing since Tom said they would be working on it the first of January. That is what I went to check on, and can't get in. I e-mailed Lorraine (hope that is right) about a month ago, but never got an answer.

Mits said...

Jo has a dr appt this afternoon

Mits said...

thanks Deb...

Red said...

Deb, I sent Larry an email about the Kent forum.

normabyrd said...

Deb!---Wishing Good Thoughts!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' RED!---What's happening at your place?---Seems like a month since I have talked with you!!

deb said...

Thanks, Red!

This is about the time last year when the swans showed up, so I am off to see if they come back. I sure hope they do, they were so pretty last winter.

BBL

paula eagleholic said...

Deb - I just rejoined the Kent forum yesterday...there weren't any new updates...

Mema Jo said...

I best pop in and at least say Good Morning before I lose my membership in the Eagle Land! I am a bit better but I am going into the Dr this afternoon just to be sure that I am a bit better!

Miss you all & love reading your comments. So it's standing room only on the eagle express - Could I just lay on the bed or sit in the loo? lol

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Mema Jo, I bet Wanda would let you have the Queen's Chair!

normabyrd said...

Thanks HELEN!---I hope JO gets a good report!----She is just too 'busy' to not feel good!---Thinking of you JO!

Mema Jo said...

My Kent Home link says:

Red said...

Hi Norma. I'm doing great. Had a good Christmas and didn't drink too much wine on New Years Eve. Now I'm getting ready for lots of rain tomorrow. We're supposed to get from 2 to 5 inches.

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good Morning everyone; Today the
weather is a little better,not to
cold and the sun is shinning and i
am going to get some gas in my
truck and go check on the eagles.We
have a new nest that is only one
mile west of my house.The other
nest that i have been watching is
six miles south.This year could be
a great year for the eagles here.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

floralgirl said...

Mason update-
Greetings from Paoli. Next it will be greetings from Newtown Square, our next place to stay, doesn't roll off the tongue as nicely, but speaking of tongues, Mason either stuck out his tongue for Mary Beth or at her. We have been trying to get him to get it out past his teeth and that was it.

MB's son Nick was there and Mason seemed to be trying to communicate with him. I know he has with me. Apparently I annoyed him enough so Mason gritted his teeth and growled at me. He did give us what we think was a grin, well not to me but to Sylvia. George, the OT had Mason standing up last week with some support from him, but the rest was Mason.
Moving forward.
Love and Peace from Paoli

floralgirl said...

Ok, get Wanda to give all of you a ride to Atlanta...
'Zoo Atlanta officials are trying to find a way to turn the PandaCam back on.
From January 4- The online PandaCam gave close-up views of Atlanta's panda family. Officials turned it off Dec. 31 to save money.
Spokesman Marcus Margerum said officials will know within two weeks whether it's possible to bring back the PandaCam.'

normabyrd said...

GOOD MORNIN' INDIANA DAVE!!---Wonderful that you have found an EAGLE NEST closer to you!!---Keep us up to date on your EAGLES!!---

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I don't want to hear that. I want them to give us a firm date for its return. Surely there is someone out there to sponsor it. Wish I had a ton of money!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

But for now, watching Tia is pretty good. He is munching on some bamboo and looking pretty happy!

normabyrd said...

BLACK (SMALL) VULTURE at BWO!!--- Remember don't shot it!!!---ho!

Mits said...

just talked to Ceil, they were leaving Fargo, ND, they are 8 hours behind and will not make their connection in Chicago tonight, so Amtrak will put them up in a hotel, and hopefully they will get on the train tomorrow night. She said to say HELLO to everyone.

paula eagleholic said...

Hey Mits...you got wax!! :):)

Mits said...

man, do I need it, thanks, Paula;)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mea culpa!! Misspelled Tai's name, as my sister so gently reminded me. I do that all the time!! TAI TAI TAI. If I type it a hundred times, maybe I will do better!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

EAGLE

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

We think that is Lib, but not sure.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Looks like someone else is near.

Mits said...

Mits said...

Mits said...

Mits said...

really cool to hear him

Mits said...

good eagle sitting in the cup

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

She has to be close. He is looking at her or for her.

Mits said...

she was just talking to him

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

He is moving the furniture. You would think he would learn by now.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

poof

Mits said...

poof

Mits said...

now maybe I can get some things down around here

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I hear one of our eagles but don't see em.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

There he is, I think it is Lib.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

got lunch?

Mits said...

yep, see him

movin said...



** GOOD MORNING **

** EVERYBODY **



C(°?°)3

Jim

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Morning Jim, how are ya?

Mits said...

morning Jim, we are watching an eagle in our nest

paula eagleholic said...

Nope, gotta go get my lunch!

BBL...

movin said...

Good morning, Sissy, Mits, Paula.

Yes, I see one of them...Liberty, I agree.

This is one of the times when young eagles are looking for opportunities to take over a nest, and I think Liberty is claiming his territory...you see how he keeps looking around and especially up?...and telling other eagles "here I am. This is my nest. I'm here if you want to try to take it."

And Belle is probably doing something similar about now to warn off, or fight off, female challengers...BEFORE the serious nesting gets started.

That reminds me to ask if anyone has been watching Norfolk this season.



C(°?°)3

Jim

Mits said...

yes, Jim we have, but the Norfolk cam has been down for a couple of weeks, supposed to be up again sometime beginning of this month

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Nice long visit!! Over now.

paula eagleholic said...

deb said...

I am home, we didn't find any swans, darn! Did find some eagles and some gulls.

Lolly said...

Hi Deb! Good afternoon everyone!

Have dedicated today putting away Christmas. What a job! I'm a Santa collector (or was!) and go all out decorating the whole house. I'm taking a breather right now.

Temp has been at 32 all day and we have had an inch of much needed rain. The trees are all white with teeny icycles. Hope the roads don't ice up.

wvgal_dana said...

We are expecting it tonight and tomorrow if it happens as they say.
Ice and more Ice.

deb said...

WE HAVE AN EAGLE

wvgal_dana said...

EAGLET ALERT OUR NEST

Lolly said...

Jo, glad you were on for a sec today. Hope you report to us after your doctor appointment.

Wanda, how about the Eagle Express detour here to pick me up for the road trip to Atlanta and FL. i am ready to picket! LOL

I am think that I am going to suggest a road trip to Jack to the hill country in central Texas. Eagles nest on Lake Buchanan and we have never gone on their boat trip to see the nests and eagles.

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle alert our nest!

Mema Jo said...

Deb the eagles are following you!
Windy up there

wvgal_dana said...

2ND EAGLE ARRIVES

paula eagleholic said...

LIb has arrived

Mema Jo said...

BOY You could see that was a coming

wvgal_dana said...

HI JO GOOD TO SEE YOU !!!

paula eagleholic said...

Lolly, sounds like that would be a great road trip.

paula eagleholic said...

If you couldn't tell that was Belle before Lib arrived...the picking through the nest for nestovers should have told you...there she goes again.

wvgal_dana said...

Neat Lolly a boat trip to see the eagles. How far away from you is that?

Out goes one eagle.

paula eagleholic said...

And, there she went out of the nest, too.

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good Afternoon I am back and i
have photos.The eagles were not at
the nest but i did see the male at
the watershed fishing and he had
a nice size shad.He was in the
same tree as he was in this past
fall by the fallen tree in the
lake.I will post photos on winter
with the eagles.
Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

deb said...

And gone

paula eagleholic said...

And Lib is gone too.

Me too..later gators!

wvgal_dana said...

Dave is this an eagle from the 1st nest that is further from you? Or from the nest closer to you?

deb said...

Update on my uncle:

They moved Bob from CCU last night about 9:00 into his old original room that he was in at the very first. It is good because they monitor him very well. The CCU nurse didn't explain it very well when she told Shawn that they were keeping him. She meant that he wasn't being sent to the Acute Rehab program. We expect that he will be moved to one within the next couple days. His regular Neurologist says he thinks there will be a great chance for a complete recovery. The Physical Therapy Doctor said that Bob is an excellent candidate. They did a chest xray on him this morning. There was a bit of fluid in CCU so we hope that is gone. They say that since he only smoked one cigarette in High School, his lungs are really strong! (Those of you who smoke, STOP IT, says me, the smoking police!)

You are all absolutely wonderful. Thanks for all the prayers. He could put on a puppet show with the toes on the left foot. The right one can be stimulated to move--I had it going from tickling his instep. I also saw it move all by itself yesterday. Now we just have to concentrate on getting him into Barrows, either now or eventually, and his good general health. We didn't sleep much last night. They are diligant about moving him every two hours.

Lolly said...

Poof! I always feel lucky when I get on during a nest visit.

Yes, Paula. I have wanted to do it for a while and we have talked about it. I know the eagles lay eggs here earlier than in the east. I need to check it out.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb great UPDATE still keeping him in prayers.

Lolly said...

Dana. it is about 3 hours from here. I have been there often as I had four sets of aunts and uncles living on the lake as well as two cousins. Just one cousin now on the lake. Just have never taken the eagle boat tour.

deb said...

Eagle is back!

Lolly said...

Deb, great news about your uncle!! And I am in agreement with you on the smoking! Hurrah for your uncle and continued prayers!

Costume Lady said...

Lolly, Gene came home today with a HP Pavillion Notebook Lap Top. It had silver keys which could not be seen very well...he is now on his way back to Hagerstown to exchange it! :(

deb said...

That note is from my Aunt Dorothy, but I second it.


NOW BOTH

deb said...

BOTH EAGLES!!

deb said...

IS ANYONE ELSE SEEING THEM??

wvgal_dana said...

Yes I have been watching !!!

deb said...

Ok, I thought I was all alone.

wvgal_dana said...

I'm thinking Belle don't stay in the nest tonight. BAD WEATHER COMING !!

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

the new nest yet this year.The
eagle was the male at the watershed

Dave

wvgal_dana said...

wvgal_dana said...

wvgal_dana said...

wvgal_dana said...

lol Deb I forgot to snap the still pic. DANG

deb said...

Poof for one.

Lolly said...

Lolly said...

Wanda, I think you will love having a laptop. When we travel I have felt so lost without my computer. Now when we hit the road we will still be in touch. I can see it now....Jack and I will be fighting over the laptop. LOL It will certainly change our routine when we travel.

Lolly said...
