Thanks, Steve:) Looks like the nasty weather has moved north towards Pa, we may just miss most of it.

Hello again. See I missed that visit while Fubby was on Ebay! Drats#$(&^%

floralgirl said...

Hello beautiful Norma:)

normabyrd said...

WHOA! NATURENUT--Who is "FUBBY"?
ho!----I missed it too!!

normabyrd said...

MEGAN---Did you buy lots of food---for the big storm!!---I think in my area---we won't need to buy food for a while!!---

NatureNut said...

Norma, Months ago Mits typed her husband's name in as Jubby. She meant to write hubby, but his name is Jay so her first letter was a mistake. My hubby is Frank, so I refer to him on here as Fubby! Tee Hee

normabyrd said...

NATURENUT!---I was kiddin' -- I think that is a COOL name!

normabyrd said...

NATURENUT!------ TOO FUNNY!! ho!

floralgirl said...

Hello Nature:)
Didn't stock up on food, Norma, starting to take these weather forecasts with a grain of salt, they have blown the last few... off to mkt. to get my fresh eggs and ground beef...bbl

normabyrd said...

The NORFOLK site is down!!

normabyrd said...

Yep!--MEGAN!---Live & Learn!!

normabyrd said...

FINNEY SITE!!----Foggy & nest is purple?

NatureNut said...

At work yesterday, I could not get on NCTC site all day. Don't know what happened---was busy anyway.
Lots of clouds down here, but bright & cold. Looks like "wintry mix" is staying north.
Guess it is what it is!

More coffee....

normabyrd said...

PA site----SNOW COVERERED---Box is still there----lots of birds & a
fluffy tailed squirrel!!

carolinabeachmom said...

Two Eagles in Nest

carolinabeachmom said...

Breakfast time for the eagles

carolinabeachmom said...

It is wierd how you can hear them pick the meat off their food.

GOOD MORNING TO EVERYONE IN EAGLELAND THIS BEAUTIFUL SUNNY SATURDAY MORNING!

normabyrd said...

I had trouble getting on the other day----I just assumed it was my computer!!---ho!---

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning NORMA. How is everything? Have the eagles been in their nest all morning? Was wondering as no one seems to be watching.

carolinabeachmom said...

Breakfast is over and nestorations begin again.

normabyrd said...

WOW!---Our 'LITTLE SOUTHERN BELLE' is signing on!----GREAT to hear from you!!---Bet you are basking in the SUNSHINE?----We have been 'FREEZING' here above the MASON-DIXON line!----ho!---Send some of your weather this way!!!How are the TAR HEELS?----

NatureNut said...

Eagle Alert---Both!!

normabyrd said...

CANDY!!---Aren't they AWESOME?----They have been coming a little more often & staying longer to get the nest ready!! ho!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Everyone !

Seen food disappear fast. One was fitting the nest cup while the other ate. Now 2 are staring around. Love the sound!

Did make it yesterday to grocery store. Wasn't because of weather was overdue. Hubby was NOT happy with me to say the least. My body paid me back too. If he isn't better dr. call Monday.

Glad Wanda, Gene and GeeGee are in warmer weather.

Candy and Megan prayers for jobs and unemployment.

Anne-Marie prayers added for you friend Sharon's dil.

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh NORMA, we finally lost a game and aren't number 1 anymore, but did win the last game. I haven't looked to see if we play today, Do you?

Hope you don't get that horrible storm that is coming up there. I'll ask Mother Nature to let it pass north of you people up there. :)

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning DANA and LORRETTA. DANA, thanks for thinking about Josh. I keep praying too that he will find something, anything would be all right right now.

So I take it Wanda, Gene, and Gee Gee are headed to or are already in Florida. Those lucky ducks. I'm glad to hear Wanda is feeling better. Now if we can get you up to par DANA.

carolinabeachmom said...

I just am enjoying this long visit by our Liberty and Belle this morning. NORMA, I think that this will be more and more common now. Won't it be great? I did turn it on a few different times at school this week and caught them in the nest, but that is all. We have been very busy.

wvgal_dana said...

Candy for me it is the usual. Been doing good as can be expected with the water exercise for the cervical and spinal stenosis. It is my fubby lol (hubby). Tuesday he came down with that intestinal virus. Poor guy really feels poorly. No better Monday dr get called.

Mits said...

GOOD SAT A.M. EVERYONE...been sitting here watching eagles and listening to wind

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' DANA!----I hope you didn't do too much yesterday!!----You take it easy GAL!----Just stay in & watch our GORGEOUS EAGLES!!---Isn't it wonderful when they have long visits!!---Best wishes to ED!-----Pray he is feeling better!!

Mits said...

eagle BWE

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HELEN!----Their visits get longer---& longer!---WONDERFUL!---seems too good to be true!!!

Mits said...

both EAGLES BWE

Mits said...

it is a wonderful time of the year, Norma

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh DANA, so sorry to hear about fubby. The virus finally got to him, too. It is horrible. Hope you have already had it, or oh o! Do hope he feels better soon.

Are your water arobics helping you at all?

NatureNut said...

Both still sitting in the windy nest. Great, long visit!

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning HELEN. Good to see you on today. I just love being able to get a good long look at our eagles. I am enjoying it very much. What a way to start the weekend.

normabyrd said...

CANDY---Sorry!--I didn't know JOSH was job hunting!!----I thought jobs were plentiful in your area!---Will keep him in my thoughts & prayers!!---

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all. was surprised to see two in the nest right now, they are just hanging out,...sound is good here

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Norma...I really miss the water exercise. Can't wait to get back there. I just don't want to leave hubby alone too long.

Good Morning Mits..I know your happy family is home. When will you be heading for the beach?

paula eagleholic said...

I love hearing them eat....sorry I missed that!

Gotta go get some coffee!!

normabyrd said...

NATURENUT!----Isn't it marvelous to just sit & watch them!!---

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, Norma, Mits and Candy and Nature and Dana.

Darn had to refresh for souund

wvgal_dana said...

Paula today should be a better day weather wise than tomorrow to go down and see your Mother. Hope she is feeling much much better.

I loved in comments--Megan's sacrifice for Paula lol ....that gal is such a friend.

wvgal_dana said...

Looking at Pa deer cam that is a "brown mineral salt lick". The thing that looks like a box in the back. Birds, squirrels, deer, rabbits any animal loves them. Because of the minerals in them.

carolinabeachmom said...

Thanks NORMA. His wife didn't want to live in Winchester, so he , like a fool, quit his job there before having another job. :( What an idiot, huh? Then all the job's everywhere started to layoff. He is looking in the Triangle area (where she wants to be). Who knows. I thought he was smarter than that.

normabyrd said...

WOW---WOW!!!---EAGLE BUDDIES!!!---This is just like CHRISTMAS!!!----We have our EAGLES to watch & lots of EAGLE BUDDIES to chat with!!!---LIFE IS GOOD!!----(now we must get MOVIN'JIM to hug a tree)--ho!!--

wvgal_dana said...

I did too Paula ---refresh for sound.

Paula did you see where Microsoft is not going to do anymore with Vista. They are coming with Windows 7.

carolinabeachmom said...

good morning PAULA. So good to see you too on here this morning. I was hoping that your mother was doing better and better. Is everything ok with her?

wvgal_dana said...

MATING

Mits said...

hanky panky

carolinabeachmom said...

Hanky Panky. That dirty bird> :)

carolinabeachmom said...

Belle says that that is it. I'm moving over to this side of the nest.

carolinabeachmom said...

Looks like she is looking for higher ground

carolinabeachmom said...

Take that Liberty!

wvgal_dana said...

Did you all hear the sound Liberty made just before??? Almost like a gurling sound.

normabyrd said...

CANDY---I know exactly how you feel my SIL wanted to move to FL!!-----now he is doing a lesser job than he had in WV!---you are not alone---

glo said...

Good morning everyone. Wow I loaded the cam just in time to see our "loving birds".

Love that the cam is up although I am out of here for several hours today off and on.

Hope your day is beautiful. Sure started out great didn't it.

normabyrd said...

PAULA---I have to 'refresh' to keep my sound!!----Where's BELLE?
Getting lunch???

NatureNut said...

Thought they poofed, but see Lib (I guess) is still sitting there.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Glo...stay warm you and Dexter.

Liberty is sitting at his favorite spot. Belle had flown up onto a limb after the HP.

paula eagleholic said...

Wow , glad I had the video running!!

No, I didn't hear about Vista...but glad to hear it...give me XP!!

Candy - what our kids do for love...probably not the best thing for Josh to do...but hope he finds something soon.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' GLO!---We don't get to see you much anymore!!---Miss you!!---You seem to have MARGY'S work schedule!!----glad you enjoy your work!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Got a Text message from Michael...having a great time.

Not sure what's going on w/ Mom...rather confused...running some tests yesterday or today.

Thank goodness weather won't be so bad...but gonna have to leave here soon...

normabyrd said...

EAGLE BUDDIES!!!----I have a question!!!!!!

What makes you think that BELLE doesn't enjoy those little encounters with LIB?????????

paula eagleholic said...

Good Question, Norma!

ROFLAMO!!

carolinabeachmom said...

Hey DANA Now we know what to look for. NORMA. She Belle got it and took right off. So did she or didn't she? That is the question!:)
PAULA Sorry to hear mom has had problems. Will keep her in my prayers that they find out what is wrong and bring her good health.

paula eagleholic said...

Sounds like Belle is the love em and leave em type...she always takes off after HP!!

carolinabeachmom said...

NORMA I think that Josh would take a lesser job about now too. Time will tell. I keep hoping, as his wife is still sick and will be going to a specialist in February; earliest she could get. What a way to start out. But I have faith that all will turn out for the best.

carolinabeachmom said...

Naaaah. She is the "Just don't touch me type" only when I want it. :)

wvgal_dana said...

Candy I don't have anything on my prayer list about Josh's wife. What is the matter?


I think Belle is just a lady. Afterwards she wants some privacy lol -- to preen and pretty herself back up.

paula eagleholic said...

Got the bonding on video...too bad sound was off again! :(

paula eagleholic said...

And I see she didn't toss him off this time!!

Mits said...

paula eagleholic said...

And the nest bowl sure is getting deep, isn't it.

paula eagleholic said...

And there went Lib up into the tree as well.

glo said...

Hi Norma I try very hard to check in daily. But you are right don't stick around too long. I am out with my cam enjoying these gorgeous critters up close. Lots and lots of pictures and links on Glo's Glimpses on a fairly regular basis.
And then of course my special picture with Angel. MTBR

glo said...

Lib is still sitting in his spot on my cam and it appears to be live. Hmmmmm

glo said...

Yes Norma You are right I have taken on 2 overnights a week right now. Had one of my co workers have a heart valve transplant 1 week before Christmas so I now have her shiftat least for a while. Leaves me daytimes to take phtos or sleep. I would much rather do one but sometimes got to do the other.

paula eagleholic said...

Refresh it Glo...probably hung up cause of the sound hanging up...There he is, just flew in!

paula eagleholic said...

With some fluff

carolinabeachmom said...

More nestorations in progress

paula eagleholic said...

Now working on the branches under the cam

paula eagleholic said...

Lib sure looks regal, doesn't he

carolinabeachmom said...

DANA Amanda has had some very serious allergies for a number of years and finally started getting shots each week after being tested. Her joints are starting to ache on top of everything else. She has tried everything, but has stopped her shots for now after a bad reaction, and is just waiting to see the specialist, I guess. As far as I know, she is home here and Josh is in Greenville looking for work. Whatever, it is too long a story, Mom caters to her every whim; not sa bite the bullet person. Soooooo we just have to wait and see what is found out. I wish it would be soon so they could get a decent start to their marriage.

deb said...

Good morning! It is sunny and cold here. So nice to see Lib in the nest.

Lynn, you asked where my dad lives, he lives in Hemet, CA. That is out passed Riverside, not as far as Palm Springs.

carolinabeachmom said...

He sure does PAULA. Look at that pose.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning DEB! Aren't you supposed to be going to California soon?

carolinabeachmom said...

Looks like Lib is waiting for his favorite gal to come bearing gifts; limbs and sticks.:)

deb said...

I leave on Tuesday, Candy. I am getting excited to go!

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like Lib was trying to cough up a pellet...I didn't see anything come out, tho.

carolinabeachmom said...

Come on Belle, don't let this handsome eagle down! He acts like he is trying to call out, but nothing is coming. He either ate too much this morning or has a sore throat.

deb said...

I thought the same thing, Paula, shaking his head like that.

glo said...

oooops Dana I sure hope Ed gets to feeling better. And Paula sorry to hear about Mom. SOme of the toughest things I dealt with when my Dad was ill was those confusion kind of days. I never knew if he was comng back to reality. It was usually a result of some medication and once that was out of his system he cleared up. He was very special to me as he had raised me from the ago of 12. Hoping for a much Healthier New Year for your Mom.

Lib just now left the nest on my cam. That is kind of confusing. Is my cam like way behind you guys.

Well I am off an dout of here for a few hours.

paula eagleholic said...

He is still coughing.

Deb, did you know there are eagles nesting out there at Hemet lake?? One of the IWS eagles!!

carolinabeachmom said...

PAULA Hope he spits that pellet out soon before he chokes. Looks like he finally got it out.

normabyrd said...

GLO!!---WOW!---As I always tell MARGY----You are a GOOD person!!---
That is wonderful!!---I would like your work---I have volunteered to be a CASA Worker (speak up for a child)----need my training---But I worked for many years as an asst. of sorts---FAMILY COURT JUDGE,--travel, etc.---lots of div.--custody, etc.----

paula eagleholic said...

No, he is still here, Glo. Maybe you are ahead of us...

normabyrd said...

THIS WAX IS FOR YOU SHARON!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Did you see the actions I described?

wvgal_dana said...

I am bringing prayer list up-to-date. Many changes for more prayers and many praises. Candy I will add Josh's job looking and will add Amanda.

Just heard geese flying.

Paula added more prayers for your Mother.

glo said...

Hmmm Ok I see he just flew in on mine too. Guess I am good to go again. But I am gone for a while. Enjoy!!!!

deb said...

I wish I had time to go find it, Paula, but I am pretty well scheduled. I will only be at my dad's for a few hours, then back to Huntington Beach.

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, your feed is way behind Glo...really strange...he just left again.

paula eagleholic said...

Huntington beach is nice, Deb. I didn't make it there on my CA trip, but my son visited....saw a surfing competition.

paula eagleholic said...

Gotta go shower and stuff and hit the road...catch ya'll later...will work on the videos tonight...

carolinabeachmom said...

Thank you DANA. I don't like to share bad new much, so I hadn't said much. They would appreciate any help from your prayers and God they can get along with all the others on your prayer list.

carolinabeachmom said...

Out for a minute while they are out of nest. BB

hedgie said...

Morning friends. See I missed all of the nest action. Great capture, Steve..thanks!
Well, Christmas ham bone is boiling, navy beans soaked overnight, and I'm about ready to clean the meat off the bone...Bean soup for dinner tonight!!! Mmmmm good. Anyone coming?
Good to see you, Candy!! Sorry about Josh and Amanda's troubles...not ag reat way to start out. Bet she has some kind of autoimmune diseas.

hedgie said...

Paula, I'm with you...give me XP, and heck with this Vista!!
Norma, dear...just wanted to clear up what you said about the Mason-Dixon Line...it forms a demarcation line between four U.S. states, forming part of the borders of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia (then part of Virginia). In popular usage, especially since the Missouri compromise of 1820 (apparently the first official usage of the term "Mason's and Dixon's Line"), the Mason-Dixon Line symbolizes a cultural boundary between the Northern United States and the Southern United States (Dixie).
You are BELOW the line!!!

Mits said...

thanks, Lynn for clearing that up for Norma...was wondering when she defected to the North...lol.

Mits said...

both eagles BWE

Mits said...

ONLY 1 at BWE now, they have been in and out this a.m.

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE---OH!--OH!---I know about the MASON-DIXON line----It's teased about in WV----In this area of the state---Eastern Panhandle---they have always referred to WV as being southern----But on 6/20/1863--WV pulled away from VA & became a separate state---A LINCOLN signed the paper!--ho!---The part of WV I grew up in---We were never thought of ourselves being Southern!!!---We used to yell 'We won the War'!!----Sorry----I should have said I said it in jest!!!----Sorry---

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' DEB!----I would be EXCITED too---if I had a trip to look forward to---What do you do with your dogs---do you take them with you?

Mits said...

eagle still at BWE

deb said...

No, Norma, they go to the kennel. Too much stress on them to go to a strange place and be left alone all the time. Flying them out and back would be hard on them, too.

deb said...

Eagle at LW, now both.

deb said...

Back to one at LW.

deb said...

Owl is out on the burrowing cam.


Back to two at LW.

Mits said...

wish LW would face the cam:)

deb said...

Me, too. They are just content watching the world go by. Think they were just beaking.

hedgie said...

Ok, Normabyrd!!! Of course, in VA schools we were taught that the "formation" of WV was illegal!!! Many of our poor Hedgesville boys left for war as Rebs, only to come home to a Yankee town. And, of course, as you know, DC was considered a southern town prior to the war!
When I first came here from DC/VA, everybody made fun of my southern accent...LOL!!

normabyrd said...

WHOA!! DEB!----I just assumed you were driving---& visiting family!!!--No Way on a plane----Thanks for update on the owl---I had checked there earlier!

Mits said...

could see some action

deb said...

It would be a two day trip each way to drive, only 1/2 day to fly. I would end up driving most of the trip out and back. Flying is much better, sit back and relax.

normabyrd said...

OH YEAH HEDGIE!!----Lots of fun with NORTH & SOUTH----in our area! LINCOLN'S Birthday was always a holiday in WV---But they combined it with GW to Pres. Day!!!----ho!---one less holiday for folks!!

deb said...

Crow or raven in LW nest.

normabyrd said...

DEB!---NO argument about flying!--ho!

deb said...

I don't mind driving, if I have lots of time and someone who is willing to help drive. That someone is not my sister that lives in Sioux Falls!

normabyrd said...

I haven't see the DIVERS since the day I spent watching football all day!!!----Think they were DIVERS from last year-----ho!

movin said...



** GOOD MORNING **

** EVERYBOdY **


iT'S a moderately beautiful 64° with 12% humidity and desert winds this fine morning in So Cal.

But it will rise into the 70's with desert winds this afternoon.

Desert winds all weekend essentially is what they're predicting.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

deb said...

Did you feel the earthquake, Jim?

Red said...

Good morning everyone. Beautiful Alabama is cloudy again today. Expecting more rain. I've been playing with my Facebook page. Trying to place pins on the map of all the cities I've visited. I gave up trying to place them all. Traveled too much in my younger days. lol

deb said...

The sky watchers probably know this already, but just in case:

If skies are clear Saturday, go out at sunset and look for the giant moon rising in the east. It will be the biggest and brightest one of 2009, sure to wow even seasoned observers.

normabyrd said...

Must get dressed & get some food!!!
& after yesterday's weather forecast----I have tons of SNACKS!!!---ho!---if any one would like to come over!!----

normabyrd said...

Will remember Deb!---Thanks--

Red said...

Hedgie, you won't believe this but I'm making navy bean soup today too and cornbread to go with it.

floralgirl said...

That's right -full moon tonite-
Winter Moon, Cold Moon, Ice Moon-take your pick...

floralgirl said...

So I'm going to Norma's for snacks, and Hedgie's for dinner-I'd stop by Red's but it's just too far to drive. Who's making dessert??

floralgirl said...

Hey Red, hubby got a bag of navy beans at the store today...never cooked them before, have to look up a soup recipe.

hedgie said...

Red, I'm fixin' cornbread, too!!! Great minds, as they say!!
Megan, it's easy!! Recipe is on bean bag....tho' this bag didn't include ham info, but a ham seasoning packet...yuck! If you don't have a hambone w/ lots of meat, ask fgrocer for some hamhocks. Soak beans overnight in cold water after sifting through to remove any gravels. Cook off ham, remove from bone and cut up; add drained beans and ham to broth w/ diced onion, carrots if you like, and pepper and parsley. Cook all day; add salt if needed before serving!

deb said...

They are easy to make and so good. My aunt always said to boil and drain them twice to relieve the problems caused by beans. It sure seems to work!

BWE cam has gone wacky!

Red said...

Check them for small rocks. It's not unusual for them to be in the bag with the beans. Not good on teeth.

deb said...

I add garlic to mine, I think it is all what you like for flavor in the spices.

BWE back to normal.

floralgirl said...

Ok, I see where I have to soak them overnite- I'll add the rocks to my driveway...

Anne-Marie said...

good Morning all, made my pot of beans yesterday. I'm one step ahead of you..:)I make them like Hedgie

Anne-Marie said...

watched my birds and squirrels this morning . I need to finish shampooing but Diana is still asleep. I have rose buds out side my kitchen window. They arent happy but they are hanging in there.

floralgirl said...

Hello Anne:)

Anne-Marie said...

Hi our flower girl, wish I had you in my garden

Anne-Marie said...

I am going to try and graft thiw spring. Maybe the end of next month. I have a lemon the refuses to bear and my friend from Southern Cal who is a nursery man taught me how. Its going to be fun.

Anne-Marie said...

eagle at BWO

Anne-Marie said...

gone, boy that was fast.. looks cold.

movin said...

Deb, I'm not sure which earthquake you are talking about, but I guess it doesn't matter, since I didn't feel any.

Sometimes, if they give a gentle rock, you think you got a head rush and don't pay any attention.

I did read in passing that we had a small quake yesterday, but there was no damage.

I really didn't notice anything this time. [:~D]

Did your sister feel it??


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Anne-Marie said...

Jim, living in So Cal would give anyone a head rush..LOL

floralgirl said...

I wish I was in your garden too, Anne:) It is a chily 32° here, not too bad, but no sun. Hoping the clouds will clear tonite so we can see the moon.

Anne-Marie said...

I am going to graft a lemon, lime and orange to my big fruitless tree. One of them should take. Its should be fun to try..It will reach about 52 here today. sunny and clear. We need rain. All the storms are going over us to the sierras. Skiing is great but we need the water down here.

movin said...

Both eagles BWE


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

floralgirl said...

EAGLE OUR NEST!!

hedgie said...

Jim, the quake was centered near San Bernardino. Never did hear what it measured, but obviously not much or we'd have heard more!!
ANne MArie...go ahead and shampoo...that girl will sleep through it! Takes a quake to wake teens...LOL.
Believe it or not, didn't find a single gravel in the beans this time!!

hedgie said...

Sure nuff...kind of puffed up, isn't he/she???

floralgirl said...

WHoa- 2nd eagle just arrived with a big stick!

hedgie said...

Looks like he's giving the cam the eagle eye now!!

hedgie said...

Two!

floralgirl said...

Cool- working right up by the cam-great pic

hedgie said...

Up close and personal!

Red said...

No gravel in mine either Hedgie. I don't soak mine overnight either and I can't tell a difference in taste. Do boil mine twice and discard water each time then cook all afternoon. Then just before serving mash them a bit with potato masher. I use two ham hocks thrown right in with the beans then clean all the meat off the bones afterwards.

floralgirl said...

Darn it,trying to chop garlic and watch the cam, gonna cut my fingegr off...must focus...

hedgie said...

Ol' blue eyes!!

hedgie said...

One gone...

hedgie said...

Can't get any work done this way!!!
Watch those fingers, Megan!!

movin said...

You're all making me hungry. I love Boston baked beans in the Crock Pot.

Years ago I had the small Crock, which had a great recipe book for some things, and baked beans was one of them. But I lost the book, got a bigger Crock for Christmas, and it doesn't have anything in the way of a recipe book.

I'll have to look on the INet for a good recipe. They're good with ham or hocks or even good sausage. Haven't tried corned beef or the like, but it might do too.

This stuff is great for cold nights, but it's not the only one...stew, corned beef and cabbage, chicken and dumplings, HAM (OR PORK STEAKS) AND SCALLOPED POTATOES are just a few...oh yeah, a big pot of spagetti and a loaf of garlic bread.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Anne-Marie said...

all I did was leave a few min to make an ommlet and everyone show up at our nest.

hedgie said...

Not sure if it's Lib or Belle still there...whichever...king or queen of the roost....purveying the realm....king or queen of all that he/she sees!

floralgirl said...

Turned the computer desk so I can see it from kitchen counter, making spaghetti sauce. 2nd eagle is back!

hedgie said...

Good color....moss evident in nestcup.
Both again!

floralgirl said...

And one out again...

hedgie said...

One gone again....lovely iridescence showing on feather tips!

hedgie said...

Cam just went black...hmmmm...hint that I need to get back to business here! BBL!

Anne-Marie said...

Jim I am on Atkins and your making me hungry. I have got to loose 10 lbs before March. help me here...:)

Mits said...

nice they are giving us longer visits.

Mits said...

really getting tired of the blog, blocking posts all the time

floralgirl said...

"Atkins"...is that the one with no carbs?? I don't see a pot of beans fitting into that somehow.

UPDATE FROM BWE.....

Nest Update

01/10/09:
We've updated our Eagle Cam Web Log with interesting information about eagle mating behavior. Also, we have some amazing photos of eagles performing a cartwheel display.

Thanks, that's a nice update-neat pictures. Lisa is right, Blackwater is a beautiful place, when I go there, I don't wanna leave.

Beans were for the kids. I had a left over ham from New Years and needed to use it. I cant throw away anything. blame my parents and good ole farmers ethics.

is is always nice to go to a place where there is complete quiet...very rare.

BWO UPDATE.....
01/10/09:
The eagles brought in another meal, although we can't be sure if it was a bird or mammal.

Unlike ospreys -- that depend almost exclusively on freshly caught fish -- eagles will eat fish, mammals, waterfowl and even carrion (such as road kill). GREAT PICTURE WITH THIS ONE......

I have decided that for some strange reason I was watching reruns. I even got to see lib do that coughing or trying to get up a pellet thing just before I left although I had read about it on the blog like 10 mins at least beforehand. Hmmmm

Back from my vetures. Wonder if I will watch real time or reruns this afternoon.

Oh before I go , brother Bill wants to go to Williamsburg this spring and meet me there. I didnt do everything I wanted to when I was there and he has never been. when does warmer weather start down there?

Starting to rain and sleet here and at the nest.

Probably around mid May, Anne-depending on mother nature, who is not always predictable.
