THANK YOU, STEVE...HAVE A GOOD WEEK!

Costume Lady said...

Hurry, I have left the door open...it's getting cold. I'll bet Jim went back to bed.
I'm going for coffee. bbl

Costume Lady said...

Close the door when you all get over here:)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks Steve, thanks Wanda!! Yep, Megan, was at the Wellness Center this morning at 5:15. Tried to talk myself out of it this morning but just couldn't do it. I see the red panda at NZ this morning!

floralgirl said...

Flurrying like crazy here as a little patch of snow passes over ...off to bus stop-

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Andrew and Kelsey just left for school. She spent the weekend here with us. They seem to get along really well. Just hope they don't get in any hurry and get their education!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle is back!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Both of them!!

movin said...

Well, I didn't go back to bed yet, but I might.

I went to AOL to see if Suzanne had returned from her week off. Emailed her, but haven't gotten a response yet.

My sound doesn't seem to be working on this site either. Maybe there's not enough power in the batteries this early.

I see BWE has some red meat ... mammal or bird ... for breakfast this morning. Can you tell what it is??

I thought it was a rat-like critter, but I think I see a wing under the female....

Jim, BWE is leftover mourning dove from yesterday afternoon.

Mits said...

Suzanne is at work today

floralgirl said...

Oh thank you, I'll take that forecast:)!!!
Sissy, that's great, keep it up, I'm impressed, that's an early morning workout..

movin said...

Had to refresh the live feed to see that you were right about both L & B returning. Sound was mostly a power problem buzz, and then it went out again.

Looks like Lib went to get more fish to get her started with the eggs. She sure was in a hurry to get back to finishing the nest, wasn't she.

Jim

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Oh yeah, Mits, I like Megan's forecast better. So that was mourning dove, huh? Yuk! The joys of mother nature!

Mits said...

I saw it after they brought it in, and the wings looked like a dove before they started to eat it...

ceil said...

Good morning all. I watched Loving Leah last night also. Nice story. Missed Lib & Belle so far today.
Have a good one. I never get to stay and chat. BBL

Mits said...

egg alone BWE

ceil said...

Eagle at BWO

floralgirl said...

Hopefully there should be another egg today at BWE.

movin said...

Thanks, Mits. I didn't raise her yet.

Probably Mr. Eagle at BWO.

Jim

Mits said...

JIM, she said she answered your e-mail....

Mits said...

Yes, Megan, today should be the day

Mits said...

Hello my sister, have you thawed out yet?

hedgie said...

Morning all.
Looks like some fleshy leftovers in our nest...sae one bird for a moment, but gone now.
Mmmmm...bacon.....(remember the Beggin' Strips commercials?...want me to send you some, Megan?
Ceil, we sure don't see much of you since you retired??? What's up with that??
Jim, do think you should go back to bed...we don't want you falling asleep over the keyboard.
Snowing here....was NOT called for on last nights' forecast...argh!

Mits said...

wow...eagle at BWO, must be big momma

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Had to take the trash out. That is one bad thing about Tom staying Sunday night at his mom's. I hate taking it out!!!

floralgirl said...

Hey Lynn:) I do not want some beggin strips-aren't those dog treats?? I will only accept actual bacon.
This patch of snow has lasted a little longer than I thought it would. Do not want snow today, have to drive to DC this afternoon...

floralgirl said...

p.s. my dog says he will accept beggin strips...

wvgal_dana said...

Nice fish laying in nest for BWE eagle to eat.

Morning ALL

wvgal_dana said...

Well after looking more closely that is part of the left over meal--part of a wing.

wvgal_dana said...

Writing between doing things. Was up early and busy but what a nice visit. Nest work getting ready for our eggs.

Mits said...

Megan, your dog will thinks its BACON!!!!!!!

hedgie said...

Megan, I wasn't going to send you beggin strips....but the commercial started out Mmmmmm...bacon! I can send you the real stuff, but I don't have any of the other for your dog!

floralgirl said...

IT'S BACON!!

hedgie said...

Just finished writing out some checks for bills..now have to make the trek out to put in mailbox, & get papers and trash can in. BBL.

wvgal_dana said...

Sissy couldn't responde back on other thread at time. Glad you are enjoying the Wellness Center there.
I'm sure you are using the machines. How is your back doing?

I don't use the machines at the Wellness Center. I only use pool for exercising in. Hubby uses both pool and machines.

Mits said...

fish crow BWO

wvgal_dana said...

It is snowing here and now I see it snow at OUR NEST.

Costume Lady said...

Lynn, have you considered setting up an online account for paying your bills? I never thought that arrangment would be for me, but thought I'd try it...couldn't do without the system now!

Costume Lady said...

Megan, I'll bet you are also a BLT lover:) Our breakfast this morning (one of my favorites) will be toasted ham and cheese sandwiches (with swiss cheese).

Costume Lady said...

Sissy, just think how wonderful it will be to have a little great neice or nephew. Picture Sharon being a GRANDMOTHER:)

Costume Lady said...

That time will be here before you know it!

Costume Lady said...

Oh, maybe you are already a Great Aunt??

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Wanda!! BITE YOUR TONGUE!!!

deb said...

Good morning. We have a little snow here, too, today. The weatherman says up to 2", but I think he is going to be wrong. (Hopeful thinking)

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I am a great aunt, Wanda, Mattie is my great niece. But I certainly ain't ready for Andrew to give me one!! I am still taking care of him!!!!

Mits said...

.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning everyone!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

OH - PLEASE - NO GRANDBABIES FOR A WHILE, PLEASE!! :)

ceil said...

Lynn I don't know. I am in and out of the blog but don't have time to really sit and chat a lot. Wish I could.
Helen I was not cold at all Saturday.
Wanda no babies for Andrew yet. Education first.
I have no grandchildren but have Molly and Maggie great nieces and Lucy and Max friends children.

Mits said...

yes, Ceil has her hands full with babies

Mits said...

thanks, Sharon, for the pic of Mei Xiang

ceil said...

Mr. BW eagle is still sitting at BWO.
Looks like Mrs. wants a break.

Red said...

Good morning Eagle watching friends. Guess the season is beginning to take shape with BW eagles being first again. That mangled bird in their nest sure looked yummy as I ate my sausage and biscuits this morning. lol

Red said...

You know you're getting old when your daughter becomes a Grandmother. I've been a GreatGrnadfather for a few years now.

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning
Just saw a fly in at OUR nest
Very intent on getting the egg well ready


Love the Beggin Strips commercial.

Mema Jo said...

BUSY BUSY EAGLE

IN OUR NEST

Mema Jo said...

It looks like Belle (the V-neck)
Checking out egg well

Costume Lady said...

Sharon and Sissy, I agree: education first. But sometimes those babies come before you are ready. Karla was only married 6 weeks when she became pregnant...I was devistated (did not approve of her husband). She divorced shortly after learning of learning of her condition. She moved in with us and as she progressed along with her pregnancey, I learned to love that little THUMPING thing inside her. When JILLIAN was born, it was I who was the first to hold her and take her to be weighed, etc.
I have never known a greater love (except for Gene). My whole life revolved around that little,precious girl. She is now 24 years old.
You can go on my JUST FOR FUN and see a photo of Jill and Dustin hugging at their Mom's wedding to present husband, four years ago.

Mits said...

eagle alone at BWE

Mits said...

digging in our nest

Mits said...

turning egg at BWE

Mits said...

meant egg alone at BWE

deb said...

My live feed keeps sticking. I had to reset to see the eagle Jo was talking about.

BWE still one egg.

Mits said...

our nest still needs some tweaky,,,cam freezes, sound is the pitts

Mema Jo said...

Well MEMA JO is awaiting #7 GREAT Grand Child! I feel the same way Red when your children's children become parents.
I am blessed with lots of love, hugs and kisses!

There is a really fine snow flurry here

Mits said...

we are having a few flurries too

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Deb! No one was commenting on OUR eagle - I thought maybe I had a frozen
pic.

Mits said...

our eagle still there:)

deb said...

There were 12 short eared owls in the Owega Wetlands near Sioux City yesterday, so guess where Mary and I are headed to!! My only sighting of a short-eared was when I was told the bird flying away was one. I could only tell you it was a big bird!

Mema Jo said...

I miss Maggie! But you know we all love Tai too.

Need to eat some breakfast...

Mema Jo said...

How far is that from where you live,Deb
I sure hope you sight them.

Mits said...

this pic is of Mei, Jo

deb said...

It is about 60 miles. I hope so, too. They say they normally don't have many owls there, so we want to get there while they are still there.

I put up a few pictures from yesterday. I think the last one is a rough-legged hawk, but I am not 100% sure. It isn't in focus, but was such a pretty bird I put it in.

BBL

hedgie said...

Wanda, I do pay my credit card bill online, but that's the only one. My daughter said that with utilities you can only do it one way or the other...wooried that if I was away and didn't have access to a computer, I'd be in dutch!! I can mail from anywhere!
Don't want to be a ggm any time soon...oldest gd is 14....I remember a guy from work saying that "you don't know love until you have a grandchild." I don't think I can say that I love them anymore than my girls....but I think I worry more about them than I did mine when they were growing up because of circumstances that I can't control in their lives. I once told my daughter that if she and her husband didn't get their acts together that I would take the girls away from them legally...and that kind of shook them to their roots. And I think they appreciated that jolt after the fact!

hedgie said...

Wonder what whoever is in our nest is thinking/doing/looking at/listening to?? Holding down that piece of leftover it seems, but so little movement!

hedgie said...

Mits, is Ceil babysitting?
I vote for bringing back Maggie's pic---she is such a mood-lifter!!!

Mits said...

I need to find a pic of the M&M girls together....:)...D-i-l just sent over 200 pics from Saturday

Mits said...

have I mentioned I wish our sound would stay on....grrrrr:(

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good morning everyone;
Man with all this talk about me
on the news,I couldn't even get my
hat on this morning HA!! HA!! just
kiding.It was a great day to see all the birds and get outside and
see some eagles.It was hard to get
good photos of wild eagles because
of where there viewing areas were
and you couldn't move around the
area much.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

ceil said...

No Lynn not babysitting. Every now and then our friends need a sitter and I watch Lucy and Max.

Mema Jo said...

I hope I didn't insult Mei by calling her Tai - he sure resembles his Mom!

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning Dave! We enjoy having
celebrities on our Blog!

Mema Jo said...

Deb - saw your most recent pics.. Thanks so much for naming each pic for us to know what we're seeing.

Mema Jo said...

Patience is a virtue but I wish I knew for what our eagle is waiting...
I keep refreshing to be sure the cam isn't frozen - so still....

Mema Jo said...

Breaking away for awhile

BBL

floralgirl said...

BWE egg is showing, still just one.

Mema Jo said...

CALTRAN EAGLE IN NEST

hedgie said...

Amazing that he/she has been sitting in that one spot for so long! Wonder if something is getting ready to happen??

hedgie said...

It's as if everything is frozen in place except the head!

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all.

BWE eagle just chowed down...back on egg now

hedgie said...

Hey, Ceil, thought you had left us!! You just need to slow down....no rush now!

hedgie said...

And then she moved!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Morning Miss Paula!! Good to see ya.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Paula, Hedgie and Megan

I had thought it was Belle
Not really sure now
Finally moving around in the nest

floralgirl said...

Hello again:) Hello Jo and Paula.
Lynn, my dog is still waiting for his beggin strips....

Mits said...

little bit of snow falling at our nest

Mits said...

magpie said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
hedgie said...

Sorry, Megan....my dog is on a perpetual diet, so she doesn't get treats!!! Did you receive the rasher I sent you??? LOL!

Costume Lady said...

I see Belle...not doing any work. Saving her energy for laying eggs?:)

magpie said...

When we were kids and got very short hair cuts we called them Baldy Eagle Haircuts.

Hope MITS gets one of those !

Good Morning Everyone, just passing through, back later. I am off today and once I get back I am going to do nothing but nothing ☺

Right now I am enjoying a brief moment with the Live Eagle !

hedgie said...

Just checked Glo's latest pics...amazing!!

Mits said...

poof

Mits said...

snowing in Co....MT nest

hedgie said...

Well, I see she finally took off! What a long rest!!

Costume Lady said...

Helen, do you know if Ceil is still going to send me a photo of Margy at the train station to copy and put on here? Tell her that I will return it to her.
The photo of Jill and Dustin hugging, is a copy that Gene took with my new camera and then I transfered it from the camera onto here. It works pretty well and is easy to do.

Costume Lady said...

Margy, you can SCAN your photos, probably 4-6 at a time and then post them. Let me know if you need help.

paula eagleholic said...

Now that looks like a snow goose in the BWE nest....black tipped wings...

Mema Jo said...

BWE EGG STANDS ALONE

paula eagleholic said...

Egg showing, BWE

floralgirl said...

Ok, still one egg, then. Maybe later today there will be two:)
I'm outa here, gotta run Mom to Walter Reed for Dr. appt.- gonna be in major traffic on the way back- c u much later.

paula eagleholic said...

Both eagles our nest

Costume Lady said...

WOW! Another visit.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Brought in lots of fluff too!

paula eagleholic said...

Gonna poof

hedgie said...

Safe travel, Megan. Better today than tomorrow!!! Is your mom retired military??

Costume Lady said...

Paula, did you read Jo's story about the purple Mardi Gras beads?
I was just looking at the PLUNGE photos and saw a man with a purple bathing suit and purple Mardi Gras beads on and thought of Jo:) I believe you were with us the night we were wathing the Bourbon St. cam.

hedgie said...

Both back in nest!

hedgie said...

Think they are eating.

paula eagleholic said...

Lib brought in a stick

paula eagleholic said...

Beaking

paula eagleholic said...

LOL major beaking!!

hedgie said...

Good view of egg cup...looks deeper.

paula eagleholic said...

LIb gone

paula eagleholic said...

Lib back

paula eagleholic said...

More major beaking...think she's getting testy, LOL

Lolly said...

Good morning! Had just finished reading the blog when both eagles came in. :)

Lots of talk about grandchildren. We were with Zach yesterday. We had a really good visit, yummy food, great play time, and I got to bathe and get Zach ready for bed.

Cold and damp here today. A day for staying in!

Those two are really working on the nest...a lot more fluff has been brought in.

magpie said...

Sweet, I think I hear kids at the Day Care Center squealing...or is it my imagination...is that US squealing ?

xo ☺

magpie said...

Wanda - I would scan my pics if I had a scanner hooked up !

I think we should disguise ourselves as little kids and go to the Day Care Center... ☺ ☺

paula eagleholic said...

That was a loud call! I heard it!

paula eagleholic said...

We are back to one eagle...

magpie said...

I'm falling asleep between sound refreshes...hate to walk away from an Eagle, but I'm headed for a Nap ! See You all later....xo

Red said...

That was eagles squeeking. For a moment I thought I was wheezing.

magpie said...

That's what little kids do about this time of day, isn't it? Nap?
Hi Lolly and everyone else.

Sounds like some great Birthday Fun ! ☺
xo

magpie said...

Oh, egg was just exposed at BWE - looks great, I couldn't type fast enuf ! :(

paula eagleholic said...

poof

magpie said...

Yeah, bye Eagle...still cam and live feed were very out of synch with each other there...
Sigh......
You all have a good afternoon !

Costume Lady said...

Margie, I would be happy to get your photos and do that for you. Just choose the ones that you want to post. GeeGee has a Super Duper Scanner that hasn't been hooked up either. Gene can do only so many things at a time and that is one thing that has to wait. He hooked mine up so he wouldn't have to listen to me whine;)

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle back

Switch at BWE around 12:30, looks like Lady BW now

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Lolly.

Lolly said...

Wanda, I love my scanner. I have been able to scan old photos and make wonderful birthday cards! LOL

paula eagleholic said...

Cannot get cam back up here...

Lolly said...

Eagle still in nest.

Lolly said...

Poof!

paula eagleholic said...

FWS is down for me

paula eagleholic said...

Cam is back for me... :)

hedgie said...

Wanda, does GeeGee spend time on the net? That is really cool that she computes....couldn't get my mom interested.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

EAGLE BACK IN OUR NEST!

Lolly said...

Moving that fluff around. Gotta get it just right!

ceil said...

Wanda I am going to send the picture as soon as I get it from MM. I will have to remind her. Would love for everyone to see it.

Costume Lady said...

They have really been working on that fluff a lot the past two days. Soft bed for eggs:)

hedgie said...

Time for a panda nap in this nest on this dreary afternoon. BBL!

Costume Lady said...

OK, Ceil.
Lynn, GeeGee won't sit still long enough for me to show her how to use the computer. We talked her into a computer so that she could read emails from us, because, many times she can't hear us on the phone. The night she called me and asked me to take her to the ER was a nightmare! I asked her questions about how she was feeling to determine if I should call an ambulance or take her to ER myself
I think she feels intimadated and overwhelmed and never will agree to use her 'puter.

magpie said...

Two at Norfolk,
Two at Colorado
One at Ours.

Mema Jo said...

I had to refresh our cam in order to see eagle.... I thought it was MT
Thanks for the heads up

Mema Jo said...

Who said Panda Nap.....?? lol

magpie said...

Crow on the branch at LW stole leftovers and is eating them !

magpie said...

Was....

magpie said...

I love that purring/cooing sound ♥

magpie said...

You got me JO LOL

Nice fly-in...☺ ♥

magpie said...

That IS some serious nest-cupping...

magpie said...

...sure is choppy...
Bye bye again, Lib..

paula eagleholic said...

I think Belle left and that is Lib eating the nestovers.

paula eagleholic said...

Poofed in this time

magpie said...

And He's back again !

Mema Jo said...

Isn't that a beautiful sight!
Glad I decided against a Panda Nap
Her feathers are sooooo large..

magpie said...

I will never get it straight Paula...unless there is some HP going on ! ♥

magpie said...

Sure is nice to have you back, Paula...♥

Mema Jo said...

Lib went Poof

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle that came in flew up to branch on the left

magpie said...

I thought I had the lighter/darker feather combination right, but maybe I had it reversed :(

I was napping and reading, Jo, "Firefight" - then got up for a minute and always have to stop...
and oogle the nest..

She or He looks as big as a turkey !

magpie said...

Did....

Mema Jo said...

That was an unusual fly out!
Topsy Tervy or however that goes....

paula eagleholic said...

MT nest

paula eagleholic said...

2 at BWE

magpie said...

I'm sneaking back to the book and the pillows...
TTFN xo ♥

Mema Jo said...

Going to hate to see the nest filled with snow tomorrow.

Both The Lord & Lady are in the BWE nest

magpie said...

and the egg is exposed.
I lied, I didn't leave

paula eagleholic said...

Poof In!!

paula eagleholic said...

They don't want you reading today, Margy

magpie said...

I think, you are right Paula ! they must know I have been Eagle-starved the last three days!

Did the BWE parents change places you think?

magpie said...

In my book, I am approaching the part where Woodsboro is going to get called in to squeeze througth "the tunnel" with their old-fashioned Ladder Truck, so that is a big draw, and here I go.
"See You" Eagle ♀'s and ♂'s later.
xo ♥

Mema Jo said...

If you go by Lisa's measurements that should be the Lady BWE...

I hope Norma finished her book today.
I hope her computer is turned off not broken so that she can finish reading before the Book Club meets.

Mema Jo said...

I am going to leave while I am ahead..
Just looked at Lisa's illustration on size and not I am doubting myself!!!

Panda Nap.......... Here I come

NatureNut said...

Good Afternoon Everyone in Eagleland!
Missed getting on here yesterday--busy trying to finish G'daughter's wedding album pics. Of course am real backed up on chores & gotta get stuff in order for work in AM.
If icing starts on TU PM, I'm bailing! A few flakes are lovely, but not ice if you're away from home!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Cam is on the blink again!

NatureNut said...

Just checked back while doing emails & saw that messy cam.
The Still is much better---only a couple rainbow stripes at top.

NatureNut said...

Oh Boy, Cam is all better! ☺

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Loretta, I don't think there will be a problem until late afternoon tomorrow, here...don't know about there. Be careful.
Will send you an email later from daughter...she found another doctor and is very pleased with diagnosis!:)

Mema Jo said...

DIL Picking me up so we can go to a viewing of a past coworker who succumbed to cancer. Only a few years old then my dil. Very Very Sad.

BBL

Mits said...

we are pretty much at the 3 day period at BWE....better come soon

T-Bird said...

good evening everyone

T-Bird said...

I hope everyone has had a good day so far.

T-Bird said...

They are calling for wintery weather here in Bedford. Get this, wintery weather is possibly one inch of snow with sleet and rain following that.

T-Bird said...

We a small amount of snow flurries this morning and everyone was talking about the snow.

T-Bird said...

I sure do miss the snow. Well enough about me....

paula eagleholic said...

It can be 4 days between eggs, Mits.
