glo said...

Good morning everyone. I am off for coffee and dog treats. Feels a little more like a normal day to me. I think I am going to go buy me some long johns too "Not the doughnuts" Weather here is going to get brutal over the next few days. Gonna make standing outside with a camera pretty cold and short lived actually because of the sake of the camera.

Hope your day is good.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle at BWE!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' GLO!!---We are looking forward to that WONDERFUL FORECAST in this area too!---One just can't tell---Weather folks get us all hyped up---then it doesn't happen--CAN'T WIN---can we?---Wishing you a great weather day!!!

Morning Sissy, Megan Norma and GLo. Just stopping in to say hi and hope everyone has a good day even though the weather is cold. BBL

normabyrd said...

GOOD--GOOD MORNIN' CEIL!!----WONDERFUL to hear from you!---Have you recovered from your train ride!!----Bet that was fun!---We are anxious to hear all about it---

ceil said...

Norma it was great. Could not help the weather. Amtrak has a lot of great people. Oregon was wonderful. Went to see the zoo lights and saw their new elephant that was born in August. Cute little fellow. We went so many other great places once we got out of the house.

ceil said...

2 at BWE

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

We have an eagle!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Looks like Belle and she is still arranging the furniture to suit her.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning everybody. Wonderful to see a beautiful eagle in our nest.

ceil said...

Thanks Sissy.

ceil said...

Hey Sharon.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I don't know, might be Lib, that is his spot, ain't it?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Now, THAT is Belle!

ceil said...

We have 2.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Ceil, have you recuperated yet?

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Mattie is waiting on you to send her that computer.

ceil said...

ALmost Sissy. Computer not here yet. Son is going to set it up for me. Lord knows how long that will take.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

They are supposed to be really nice. We were looking at them online.

ceil said...

I have got things to do. One of these days I will be able to just sit and watch. Have a good day all.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Bakatcha Ceil, have a good one!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Gosh, those are tress they are moving around. How cool, right in the camera.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Hope she don't knock the camera down with that tree!

floralgirl said...

Boy, the color has really gotten great on the cam.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Tried to capture a pic of it with Fraps but Mozilla crashed when I tried.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Hi again Megan!!

floralgirl said...

Howdy again Sissy:)
Hello Ceil, Norma and Sharon :)

NatureNut said...

Morning Everyone! Saw 2 eagles our nest. Now 1 posing for the camera. Lovely way to start the day & I thought I was too late!

Lolly said...

Good morning Ladies! I got on just in time to see all the house building. Wasn't that cool?!!! I mean they were moving logs!! And, I loved how they messed with that one until they got it right, then switched places and in comes another log! And, the color! WOW!

normabyrd said...

Doesn't BELLE look more BEAUTIFUL each time we see her???---anyone have sound???

Lolly said...

I decided to get on before reading the paper. Glad I did!

Lolly said...

I had sound durning the building. Can not tell now, no wind. I did notice that when there was sound, like people, dogs, or an airplane, they would stop their work and listen.

floralgirl said...

Hi Nature and Lolly:)
No sound here, Norma.

Lolly said...

Good morning Megan.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' BIRTHDAY GIRL!!---Sounds as if you have been enjoying it!---COOL!----What's the temp in TEXAS???

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' NATURENUT!!---SUZANNE says hello to everyone!!---she misses us very much!----Told her we miss her more!---ho!---We are a loving bunch---aren't we?---AND THAT IS A GOOD THING!!!!!

Lolly said...

I also had another treat this morning. I was at my kitchen window and there were two Mocking birds doing a mating dance. They were on the ground, dancing around each other, jumping up about 8 inches, and occasionally literally rolling on the ground in a ball.

NatureNut said...

Sitting in the nest for a long time. Good for us!

Lolly said...

It is 36 here this morning, bright blue skies. The full moon was bright in our window last night!

Lolly said...

Yes, we miss Suzanne. I loved her morning observations!!!

deb said...

Good morning, it is beautiful out here right now. The winds are supposed to hit around noon. Wind gusts in Rapid City are 70 mph, but luckily won't be that strong here. I am just about done packing, just need to make sure I haven't forgotten anything, like my flipflops!

deb said...

What a nice way to open the computer!

NatureNut said...

Hi Lolly! We may be coming to TX first of April. Bluebonnet season & King Tut exhibit will be in Dallas. 4 hours away, so we could spend the night there & daughter wants Fubby to see LBJ ranch & library. He worked for him for awhile at the Senate. We've driven by the ranch, but didn't go in to library.

Lolly said...

Good morning Deb. Is the weather going to play havoc with your departure plans? Hope not!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Liberty just came back! They are an active couple this morning.

NatureNut said...

More coffee......

floralgirl said...

Hope you have a great trip Deb:)

Lolly said...

Good morning NN!! Yes, we are going to see the King Tut exhibit. Laurel has already been and will be going again taking her class. Michael as also been to see it. We will go soon.

Hope the bluebonnets are beautiful this year, just for you!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Haven't had a chance to look at yesterday's blog. Are you going to CA, Deb?

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Busy, busy eagles in our nest for sure!

Lolly said...

Poof! Guess I can go read the paper now. I am just going to have to start getting up earlier and enjoy the morning show!

BBL

deb said...

I leave at 7 AM tomorrow for CA, so flying shouldn't be a problem. It is the driving to Omaha that could be the problem. We changed our plans and will leave this afternoon instead of driving down in the morning. That gives us plenty of time to get there. As we go south it is supposed to get better.

floralgirl said...

Eagle back with nest material!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Busy eagles this morning.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Come back Lolly, they aren't done yet.

Whatcha goin' to CA for, Deb?

ceil said...

Good morning, Lolly, Loretta, Megan and Deb.
Just checking back in before I leave to do errands.
Deb have a great trip. Loved your pictures.
Good day to everyone.

deb said...

My niece is getting married on Saturday, Sissy.

paula eagleholic said...

Kewl - eagle in the nest!

Morning, all!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

That is Lib I think, in his favorite spot again.

paula eagleholic said...

Deb - have a great time. Did you pack the suntan lotion?

normabyrd said...

NATURENUT!!---I have always had a great deal of respect for LBJ!----I met him once---a much larger man in person than he appeared on TV!--

grannyblt said...

Morning all from snowy PA. We got about a foot of that white stuff this weekend.

Saw the long visit at our nest a while ago. That one stick was giving someone fits.

Lolly, I love your avitar. I lived for over 40 years in the Houston area. All of my household belongings are still there in storage, so I may move back there someday Yes, Nature Nut, April is the right time for the bluebonnets in the hill country (around Austin towards Brenham)

Deb, have a great trip.

Lynne

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' PAULA!!---Tell her to remember her bathing suit!!---

normabyrd said...

MORNIN GRANNYBLT!!---Thought of you this am when I saw all that SNOW at the PA SITE!----We haven't had much snow---but lots of COLD WINDS! Did you know LOLLY makes home made bread too!!----(must be a TEXAN thing)---ho!----

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE....just turned puter on to hear eagle calls:)

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HELEN!!---I have that EAGLE too---bought it in Shepherdstown!!!

normabyrd said...

MEGAN---COOL AVATAR!!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I was listening to my eagle just the day before yesterday.

paula eagleholic said...

Deb - Don't forget your bathing suit!

paula eagleholic said...

Most important, don't forget your outfit for the wedding!

deb said...

I have my wedding outfit, not bringing swim suit or suntan lotion. No time for sun tanning, unfortunately.

ATLANTA UPDATE....

Monday, January 12
The temperatures have started to drop here in Atlanta, making it feel more like winter. Along with this change in season, we are beginning to see the start of breeding season behaviors in Yang Yang. Over the last week we have seen a small increase in his activity, including walking around his habitat and more frequent scent markings. In the wild, both of these behaviors would help him locate and notify females near his home range that he is around and ready when needed. These behaviors also advertise his presence to other males with which he would compete for access to cycling females. Yang Yang does not yet know that this year he will not have the opportunity to mate, because Lun Lun will not cycle while she is nursing Xi Lan.

Mei Lan is also enjoying the cooler weather and continues to peel and eat both rivercane and yellow groove bamboo. Lun Lun is still spending her time indoors in the off exhibit dens and dayrooms, because Xi Lan is still a little small to negotiate the outdoor habitats. Xi Lan will spend all day on exhibit only if Lun Lun leaves him in the hammock, otherwise he still prefers the off exhibit dens. His motor skills have definitely improved and he seems to enjoy short bouts of wandering around the dens checking out his area.

Your welcome, Sharon:)

Mits said...

Mits said...

Mits said...

Mema Jo said...

Good Monday Morning Everyone! Good to hear from so many so early! Sorry I missed the visit..... I'm sure they will be back later.

Nothing planned for today - another lazy day........

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning Mits and Mema Jo. My sound is doing the same thing Mits.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

But then, my whole cam is freezing up a lot too.

floralgirl said...

Hi Jo and Helen:)
My sound disapears shortly after opening cam page. oh well...but the picture is great!

Mits said...

yes, my pic is fine.....aren't they supposed to be getting some more new things done to the cam BEFORE the season gets under way...?????

normabyrd said...

I'm happy I checked back in!!---My computer has been freezing up--I just supposed it was me!---

normabyrd said...

DEB!!---Your pics are AWESOME!!--as always!-----ENJOY YOUR TRIP!!--I know you will look beautiful!!!

deb said...

I am off to take the dogs to the vet, it is snowing here, but so far it is just light snow and no wind.
BBL

Mema Jo said...

No sound here but beautiful clear pic on cam...

movin said...



** GOOD MORNING **

** MY FRIENDS AND **

** FELLOW EAGLE LOVERS **

movin said...

We are having winter Santa Ana winds for the best part of a week, because of a high pressure area over NV, and either the weather instruments are crazy or the weather is.

It was due to drop into the high 40's last night, but I don't think it went much below 70°... the first look at the weather channel this morning has 71° already.

83° is predicted today, but at this rate it'll probably break through that max.

magpie said...

Hello Eagle ♀ and ♂ People.

Megam: Love that new avatar! Jumped right off the page when I saw it...

If there was an avatar for "Clumsy" I would probably use it sometimes...

So good to hear about OUR Birds on the nest, maybe I will luck out and see the next visit.

Happy Trails, Deb. We will miss you.

xo

magpie said...

Didn't intend to give you a new name, MEGAN - sorry,
fingers are all cracked up and sore from the weather...:(

magpie said...

Norfolk cam is up for me...don't see any birds yet. Hear people talking at the Maine Nest...

Lolly said...

Back! Read the paper and did the morning sudoku puzzle.

Morning Jo! I got on early this morning, well early for me and thoroughly enjoyed the morning house building. Belle and Lib were moving logs!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' MOVIN'JIM & MARGY!!---WHOA! JIM----Are you fussin' about your WARM weather???---ho!!----MARGY---Maybe you can tell him how lovely our weather is------

Mits said...

thanks for update on Norfolk, Margy

Lolly said...

Good morning Margy. Hope you do get the next visit. You missed a good one this morning. They were up close and working on those trees you see in the bottom left of the nest. You could really hear too.

hedgie said...

Good morning all. Cold, gray...we've had some flurries, too. Good to see so many of you this am!
That sure is a big log in the "fort", isn't it??
Deb, hope the Omaha drive isn't too bad for you this afternoon. Have a great time!
SIL here w/ his mom's BIL delivering/stacking wood...making lots of noise about it! Sure didn't want to run low with the wickedly cold temps coming the next few days!
Gotta move truck out of garage so they can put Christmas tree on shelf.
Drs. apptmt. this afternoon, so gotta get ready for that, too.
HAve a nice day. See you later!

Lolly said...

Norma, we do enjoy milder winters but we like the cooler weather. If it gets too warm the trees start to bud out and then...whoops! along comes another freeze and kills the buds. Then the fruit trees suffer. :(

Mema Jo said...

Just finished emails...
Opened Moose cam and Pook has new posting about: Alfalfa Returns
with his antlers still in tact.

He is on the cam now - beautiful

floralgirl said...

Hi Margy, don't worry, I've been called worse. See, my mood has gone from grumpy to grouchy...not sure if that's progress-
Hello Jim and Hedgie

Mema Jo said...

I have some wind sounds from our cam now.. but it didn't last very long.

Mits said...

Hi Lynn, Bye Lynn:)

floralgirl said...

That moose is beautiful...

Mits said...

I think it is a definite improvement, Megan;)

floralgirl said...

Well thanks:)

Mits said...

he is beautiful.

floralgirl said...

I wish I had moose instead of deer, but hubby says, no way, they would wreak havoc in my gardens..

Lolly said...

Well!!! Something ate my last blog!!

Been listening to the Maine cam. You can almost understand the men talking. Funny!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HEDGIE!---Sounds like you have great relatives!!---Isn't it wonderful to have help--now just sit back & let them help you----good wishes--Dr.today---

magpie said...

Lolly - they sound like lumberjacks at Maine!

Megan, favorite book from when daughter was a kid, "How to be a Grouch" by Oscar the Grouch...

Page One:

"First of all, if you want to be a Grouch, you have to stop being so NICE and CUTE ! "

xo ☺ ♥

Lolly said...

Now you hear chopping on the Maine cam. Wondering what they are doing????

magpie said...

Moose cam is wonderful, pictures are magnificent....We're lucky to have that one! ☺

Lolly said...

Hey Margy...think we had the same idea. However, they are talking more than they are working!

magpie said...

Don't see any action at the IWS sites, but Seal Rocks looks better this morning...empty, but there is some pretty green stuff in the nest.

floralgirl said...

I loved Sesame Street as a kid, and my daughter learned so much from that show- when she was little, we took her to Sesame Place in PA., and she was awed by the characters walking around, at that age, she believed they were real..

Mits said...

Maggie loves....MELMO....that is what she calls him...cracks me up:)

magpie said...

One more, Megan:
"Remember these things that a Grouch Can't Stand:
Friendly puppy dogs, Pretty flowers, Cuddly kittens, and Mushy Mail."
But I sure do like Oscar better than Grumpy !
xo ☺

floralgirl said...

Aw- that is so cute, I think we have at least 3 Elmo dolls in daughter's closet-one is so ragged-he got a lot of lovin'..

normabyrd said...

LOLLY---I have tried twice to get sound on ME site!!---Maybe tomorrow!!----I have so much paper work here---I think I need an asst!
ho!---I just need to get off computer & keep up!!---naaw!

magpie said...

I agree, Sesame Street is Tops...

Melmo ! That's Great, MITS.

Hear Eagles calling at Maine, I think it is Maine, would rather it be NCTC -

Got to get some stuff done, but will be Watching OUR NEST.

Good Day to Everyone, even if it is MONDAY.

xo TTFN

Lolly said...

As much as I would love to sit here all day, I really think I should get up and start moving. Need to buy some groceries. Jack, for some reason, wants to continue eating. I'm just trying to save us money!

Have a great day! BBL

normabyrd said...

Have you all noticed----When WEATHER PEOPLE are giving us news about the BAD weather --- they have a kinda smile on their faces!!
Time!---later!

Mits said...

they are sadistic people:):):)

floralgirl said...

That's cause they know they are probably wrong....

Mits said...

tee hee, Megan:)

floralgirl said...

At least I haven't lost my twisted sense of humor-although that may not be a good thing....

Mits said...

I look forward to your twisted sense of humor:), makes me LOL!

Mema Jo said...

ME TOO, MEGAN
((hugs)) ♥

Our new little dog is wanting to play but he just ain't sure how to go about it. He is still intimidated by everything but not as bad. He is definitely feeling better. It is so cool to watch him "come into his own".

Mits said...

good for you, Megan:)

Mits said...

EAGLE AT NBG

Mits said...

BOTH ARE THERE:)

Mits said...

one on branch, one in nest eating

deb said...

I am back from Yankton, drive over wasn't fun, but it quit snowing, so the drive back wasn't bad. Now I am just waiting on my sister and we will be off to Omaha.

magpie said...

Bon Voyage, Deb. xo ♥

floralgirl said...

Have a great trip, Deb!!

magpie said...

Thanks for the Norfolk news, folks.
They Look Great !

magpie said...

Good news, Megan... Takes a lot of hard work but sounds like you've got your Act together ! I'd be both Grumpy and Grouchy with all that you are dealing with....that twisted sense of humor will get you through !
xo ☺

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Have fun Deb. Be safe!!

floralgirl said...

Wish I could figure out why my computer can't handle the NBG cam, I can't watch it.

magpie said...

Megan, I know I had to add something, maybe ActiveX controls but I can't remember which it was...someone on here with Way More Experience will probably walk you through it....

magpie said...

As long as you get NCTC, everything else pales by comparison anyway.... ☺ ☺ ☺

magpie said...

One eagle at BWE

floralgirl said...

Hmmm....... not sure, all I know is when I try to watch NBG or Maine cam, my screen pic jumps all around- was thinking it is a monitor issue...

magpie said...

Yeah, that would drive me CRAZY and I would not watch it either...

magpie said...

Sissy:
That is one lucky dog, surrounded by many Blessings....☺ ♥

magpie said...

* Perfectly beautiful turkeys at Pix PA *

magpie said...

I'm looking for beards but don't see any yet.


with all that hollering at Maine, don't think we are going to see any Eagles for awhile !

deb said...

I am signing off, thanks for all the safe travel wishes.

deb said...

I am signing off, thanks for all the safe travel wishes.

magpie said...

Okay - Deb...Sayonara...
xo ☺ ♥ Have a Sparkly Time !

Mits said...

safe travels, Deb:)

Red said...

Megan, you could need JAVA. You can download it free.

JAVA

paula eagleholic said...

Megan - NBG and Maine - are you watching it from the cam page or your WMP

floralgirl said...

Watching from the cam pages- I have JAVA- using JAVA site yp check for it-I know I have it, maybe there is a problem with it- I have issues with the Caltrans cam, NBG, Maine, etc..

floralgirl said...

Site says I have the recommended JAVA-Version 6 Update 11.

paula eagleholic said...

Megan - do you have IE 6

Red said...

You could install it again. Won't hurt anything and it might fix a corrupted file.

paula eagleholic said...

Megan - copy and paste the following into your WMP...file, open url...it is the PH nest...wondering if screen jumps w/ WMP or just IE

http://media1.vcoe.org/eaglecam1

floralgirl said...

Ummm..I don't know- where do I find that info?

floralgirl said...

Screen still jumps around thru WMP- hard to explain-like I get several images of the page all over the screen-jumpy...

floralgirl said...

Ok, I have windows XP- version 5.1

Red said...

That does kinda sound like a monitor sync problem. Is it an old monitor with some controls on the back?

Red said...

Or behind a little panel on the front?

floralgirl said...

Has buttons on the side- not more than 5 yrs. old-

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Megan, if you go to the top of this page, click on "help", then on "about internet explorer", it will tell you what version of IE you are using.

floralgirl said...

Found that, thanks Sharon:)

Red said...

Megan, are you still on Dial up?

floralgirl said...

Thank goodness- NO dial up here.

paula eagleholic said...

Megan - if you shrink all open windows, and right click on your desktop (not on a shortcut)and choose properties, settings, advanced, it gives you info about your monitor..go to troubleshooting...try changing hardware acceleration to either full or none

Also, you can click on troubleshoot to reinstall the driver...you have to skip the first set of questions to get to that section

Red said...

Is your monitor a flat screen or the old tube type?

paula eagleholic said...

You can also change the "screen area"...try more or less pixels on your screen.

floralgirl said...

Well, I set my hardware acceleration(whatever that is) from full to none- and voila! no more jumpy screen when I open the NBG or Maine cam- thanks, Paula:) I owe you- please send me your IT bill.
thanks to you too, Red for your help.

floralgirl said...

Flat screen monitor- and hey, there's an eagle at NBG!!

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle alert!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Nice branch brought in!!

Glad that worked for you, Megan!

Red said...

I didn't think you could see NBG cam.

paula eagleholic said...

My feed is choppy...darn...some good action in the nest.

floralgirl said...

They sure are building up the nest- my monitor issue has been solved...this blog will now return to it's regurlarly scheduled program..thank you, you guys:)

Red said...

Sorry, I missed where you said Paula fixed it. Way to go Paula.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Nice mid afternoon visit!!

floralgirl said...

I can see it now, Red!
