NatureNut said...

Think Finland cam is stuck--on a good scene tho!
PA turkeys seem to like the square object in the back. Maybe it's suet or something.

floralgirl said...

Morning all:) just crawled out of bed- nice to see an eagle in the nest.

floralgirl said...

Jeesh- I am so bored with these windy days. Cold weather headed to us, by the end of the week, they are predicting our temps will be in the 20's during the day, and low teens at nite. brrr.....

hedgie said...

Morning, gang! Getting ready for a panda nap...got up at 6...out the door at 8 to meet Bill for breakfast...couldn't get out of my development....interesection was SO-O-O ice-covered...and on a slope...I was going 5 mph w/ my right wheels off the pavement, and I was sliding. Chickened out and managed to back up to a driveway and turned around and came back home. Booo...
Norma, my bean soup was delicious, as I'm sure Red's and Anne Marie's was....Megan did spaghetti! Her hubby had bought beans so we told her how to make soup!!

deb said...

Norma, I pulled into the driveway and there was that nuthatcher. It didn't fly away, just sat there and let me take its picture.

normabyrd said...

NORFOLK---still down!

paula eagleholic said...

Norfolk Cam Message:

Adjustments are still being made to Eagle Cam. The video may be unavailable
at times when the work is in progress. Thanks for your patience.

paula eagleholic said...

Sorry you missed your breakfast, Hedgie! My deck is icy slick, too, but it looks like the roads are OK here.

Norma- is your Finney nest refreshing?

normabyrd said...

DEB!---I enjoy watching them!! --- almost as much as I do the CARDINALS---they seem to glow during these dark cloudy days!!!

Mits said...

there is a 7 hour difference between here and Finland...so yes, Finland is stuck:(

Mema Jo said...

It sure is a slippery Sunday morning out there. But you are all here safe & sound. Lynn I think you made the right decision! I sure don't do ice!

Good Morning!

normabyrd said...

PAULA---NO!!---I tried that earlier!!

Mema Jo said...

A truck has pulled into to the snowman cam area. Don't know it someone will shovel or fill the feeders...

deb said...

Paula, do the eagles come to the Seal Rocks nest very often?

Mits said...

I think they are just visitors....sometimes I see on the chat room people wanting to stop by and take a pic

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE!!---I don't think we have ice here!---The paper girl was here --- much earlier!!---

CHECKED JUST FOR YOU HEDGIE!!--ho!---My DRIVE is dry!!---ICE scares me to death!!---My car is good in snow!

deb said...

The man in blue must be the one on the snowmobile. He still has on his helmet.

deb said...

Maybe two of them are snowmobilers, one guy is wearing a ski mask.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO!----Feeling better?---I hope!---I think this is 'STAY IN' weather!!

paula eagleholic said...

Deb - No one has seen an eagle yet at Seal Rocks...

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks Mits and Norma

deb said...

Thanks, Paula, I keep watching and no one comes to visit.

Mema Jo said...

Snowmobilers just took off

Mema Jo said...

WOW SHORT RIDE

Truck returned and so did the snowmobilers........

Mema Jo said...

Norma - just let's say I got an earlier start today! Hope I hold my own!

Mema Jo said...

Blogger cop is after me

BBL

normabyrd said...

JO!---Remember---I have problems too!---That's why I keep telling you to take it easy---in your own time!!----no one can breath in this COLD--COLD weather they are predicting-----

paula eagleholic said...

movin said...



**gOOD SUNDAY**

**MORNING TO YOU**

wE have a temp. of 63° now, but it's still blowing hot winds from the desert, and they say it's destined to rise to 80° or so by afternoon.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

paula eagleholic said...

Two our nest!!

Mits said...

nice clear pic of them too:)

hedgie said...

Panda nap over, crossword puzzle done, and ready to finish yesterdays work...have to get all the boxes back under the eaves!
Don't know what road is like now, but still see ice on some surfaces. My papers were here, too, Norma, so I think maybe there must have been some early morning precip. cause there sure wan't any ice last night.
Jim, are the warm desert winds the ones that pose the biggest fire risk? Heard last night that the Th. quake was a 4.- something. Footage on your NBC station showed people running out of a mall. (I had taped something on west coast station/time that evening).

paula eagleholic said...

Yes, just like yesterday

paula eagleholic said...

Lib was calling out a minute or so ago...but my sound was out...

Darn sound...

hedgie said...

Hi ho, Hi ho, off to work I go.
Speaking of work...Margy seems to be having a busy day.
No phone number for highway dept. in book, so I called 911 on non-emergency line to have them get DOH out to salt....but Margy wasn't who answered! BBL.

hedgie said...

See our eagles!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Lib is really puffed up, must be trying to keep warm

hedgie said...

Something made them both turn toward cam at the same time!

paula eagleholic said...

Beaking

paula eagleholic said...

Think she told him "no"

paula eagleholic said...

There went Lib...my feed is really choppy all of a sudden

paula eagleholic said...

Lib appears w/ a stick

Mema Jo said...

I'm BACK !

paula eagleholic said...

Nice to see these visits several times a day.

Mema Jo said...

Egg well looks deep

paula eagleholic said...

Belle took off

Mits said...

yes, it is nice to see them on a more frequent basis:), just think a month from now we will hopefully be looking at eggs:)

Mema Jo said...

That's what I was thinking... very soon there will be eggs! Probably all the nest over here on the east coast
should be incubating in Feb.

Mema Jo said...

Time for my afternoon snooze

BBL

Mema Jo said...

Whoops! holding off for awhile

They are BOTH back in the nest

carolinabeachmom said...

Good afternoon JO, PAULA, and MITS. Came back just in time to see the two in the nest. What a sight. Can't seem to keep my sound on, tho.

JO I hope you are feeling better and for goodness sake, don't go out in that cold air. You don't need that.

PAULA How was your visit with MOM yesterday? Better, I hope.

carolinabeachmom said...

It doesn't seem possible that the long waiat is over and there will soon be eggs again in the nest to watch.

Mema Jo said...

BWE also in the nest

Mema Jo said...

Hi Candy - Good to hear from you
I will stay away from the cold!!!

My sound isn't on either

carolinabeachmom said...

Hanky Panky.

Mema Jo said...

Need Megan to come on and tell us how powerful the wind gust are at the nest

Mits said...

have to keep refreshing to get sound

carolinabeachmom said...

I had sound yesterday for a long time while I watched. Today, it doesn't stay on long even with a refresh. Then I'm afraid that I will miss the birds actions.

Mits said...

true, sound does not last long on refresh

Mema Jo said...

One of the Caltran eagles is at their nest....... Surprised that the cam came up quickly......

Well he was out on the branch but is gone now...

carolinabeachmom said...

Maybe if the wind would just stop it would make a difference or have you noticed it doing this through the week when thee was no wind?

Mits said...

I have only noticed the sound being bad today...

Mits said...

poof BWE

Mema Jo said...

Oh My! The Maine nest is snow covered and you can see it is still snowing..........

Mits said...

yeah, Jo, noticed that a little while ago, looks pretty

carolinabeachmom said...

Thanks for the reply MITS. The poor eagles in Maine don't stand a chance.

wvgal_dana said...

Morning everyone ( :

Been watching football then eagles came into nest. So now watching games and our eagles.

Jo stay warm! Also resent you that email.

Mits said...

got to go set up my ailine cams, like to watch when hubby flies...bbialw

Mits said...

they are making some sort of gurgling sounds...

paula eagleholic said...

Missed the HP...see Belle is sticking around this time :)

paula eagleholic said...

And did it really look like HP or just practice...yesterday it looked like the real deal

Mema Jo said...

I got it Dana & it worked! Thanks

paula eagleholic said...

Belle is digging around the egg cup bowl now.

Mema Jo said...

I missed it Paula as I was making a comment Candy was the eye witness!

Mema Jo said...

At times Lib looks like he is going to blow off his perch.


BBILW

floralgirl said...

Ok, Jo, last gust here was sbout 13 mph- seems windier over there at the nest today.

paula eagleholic said...

Lib is gone...

Gotta head out catch ya'll leter

carolinabeachmom said...

PAULA, Yesterday he would make those gurgling sounds before he hopped on her back. Yes he was on top of her for a time just a few ago.

carolinabeachmom said...

It looks like Belle is keeping the egg cup warm.

floralgirl said...

Looks like the wind gust is from about 6 to 14 mph in Shepherdstown

Mits said...

NEW BABY GORILLA BORN AT ZOO, STORY AND VIDEO

carolinabeachmom said...

Well guess I'll read a little while. I stopped at the library on my way home from school to get some large print books. Still haven't started them yet. Can't wait to see when the eagles stay all night on the nest. I checked in last night around 2:30am when I couldn's sleepand the nest was MT> BBL

Mits said...

we have several more weeks before that will happen, Candy

wvgal_dana said...

Wow neat video....I love how she pats the baby.

Lolly said...

It is so cool to get on and there is Belle.

Lolly said...

Thanks Mits for letting us know about the birth of the gorilla. How great! And the video is really neat!

wvgal_dana said...

Lolly did you get the note about your Birthday Card?

Mits said...

poof Belle

Lolly said...

Got home from church and going this afternoon to Laurel's. Got a phone call a little while ago. Thought it was Joseph, but it was Jacob. He made his first phone call ever to me! Of course, he was self conscious and talked nonsense. Laurel is preparing dinner and birthday dessert for me, so will not be on this evening.

Mits said...

have a good time, Lolly

wvgal_dana said...

Sounds like more birthday fun for you Lolly.

Lolly said...

Yes, Dana, I did. I thoroughly enjoyed my card. I received many and it was soooo much fun. Really appreciated them all. Thank you!

wvgal_dana said...

I'll have to send that link from the DC zoo baby being born. So SIL can see the baby. She'll love it.

Lolly said...

Thanks Mits! This is one time I do not have work to do when I go up there. I am usually the one preparing the meal and I always have a job or Jack has a job. ha! We continue to spoil our kids, but Laurel works, and I know I would have appreciated any help while raising a family. Also, we spoiled them....but they are spoiling us right back! LOL

Lolly said...

Deer at snowman cam!

Mits said...

I hear ya, Lolly, do the same here, they work hard and have the 2 little ones, so like to spoil them, when they let me:)

Lolly said...

Time to leave. Possibly be back late this evening. Hold down the fort!

Mits said...

Mits said...

poof...BWE

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle at BWE

wvgal_dana said...

deb said...

I am back home, had to get an eagle fix in before I left. Off to start some laundry, bbl.

deb said...

Watched the gorilla, but still have to watch Paula's videos. The baby was so cute!

NatureNut said...

Just hung up my Pittsburgh Terrible Towel!!!

Phila Eagles won an exciting game against Giants.

Later ☺ ☺ ☺

deb said...

I keep thinking it should be getting darker at the nest by now, 5:20 your time.

deb said...

EAG;ES!

deb said...

EAGLES, I was too excited to spell it right.

Mits said...

Mits said...

Mits said...

poof

wvgal_dana said...

She flew up into tree likes like he is getting ready to leave.

deb said...

At least we got in a visit before dark.

Mits said...

sure did, Deb, and sound stayed on this time.

deb said...

I added some pictures from today. The last three were taken from quite a distance, so the focus isn't too good, but fun shots of eagle, a red tail and a crow.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening everyone. I am in Bedford and have been absolutely a lazy bum today. I did make it out to WalMart and Tractor Supply a while ago but looking forward to bedtime now.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good to see our cam is up and working!

Mema Jo said...

Just popped in --
Hi Sharon Lazy days are ok!
Touch base with us tomorrow...

BBL

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

Good evening to all; Hey deb i
checked out your photos and there
great.I just droped in to see who
is all here.

Indiana Nesting Eagles----Dave

deb said...

Thanks, Dave, I couldn't believe it when I saw the Juvie and the red-tail in a chase. It was fun to watch.

indiana nesting eagles dave said...

I was just wondering if anyone
has talked to susan lately,I haven't seen her here for a while.

Dave

hedgie said...

Saw the piece about the baby gorilla on the news! Really precious, isn't it?
So far, so good with the football games...looks like PA is the BIG winner for the day!!! Bet Philly and Pittsburgh are both rockin'!

hedgie said...

Deb, haven't looked at your pics yet, but wanted to wish you a safe and fun trip!!! We'll miss you and your photography!!

deb said...

Suzanne got a new boss and had to cut out the blog, she is doing fine, but misses being on here with everyone.

deb said...

I'll be here a little tomorrow yet, Lynn, it depends on the weather. We are supposed to get freezing rain tonight and snow tomorrow, so may head to Omaha earlier than planned.

Mits said...

lots of deer at PA, and even on the remote cam

deb said...

Did you see the deer with the stick stuck in it's fur? My cam is jumpy tonight.

Mits said...

Deb, the weather in Los Angeles looks great for this week, what a nice break for you:)

deb said...

Well, @#$#$@#, they just posted a blizzard watch for Sioux Falls tomorrow. I am just in a Winter Weather Advisory, but might experience blizzard like winds and blowing snow. GO NORTH!

deb said...

Yes, it will be a nice break. I don't think I will be taking my dogs to the kennel in SF tomorrow. I think they may have to go to the vet in Yankton.

hedgie said...

Oh, Deb, as always, they are beautiful!
Hi, Sharon!! When is your apptmt. in Charlottesville? Will you have to go by yourself, or will Thelma be able to go with you?

Mits said...

yikes, Deb.....hubby just landed in LA:)

Mits said...

too bad you don't live closer to one of us Deb, we could doggy-sit:)

deb said...

I wish that was me landing! I fly into John Wayne, though, not LAX. It is only about 15 minutes from my sister's place. (on a no traffic problem trip)

Mits said...

78° in Los Angeles

deb said...

That would be nice. At least they don't mind the kennel or the vet, they get spoiled every time they go. SF is so much cheaper, but I am not driving up there in bad weather to save some money.

Mits said...

you are a smart lady, Deb;)

deb said...

70 in Huntington Beach, 26 here. 26 isn't bad, 21 for tonight's low. -3 for tomorrow night, yuck!

hedgie said...

Deb, do you have to fly out of SF?? Are you leaving Tues.?

hedgie said...

My friend won't even pick up any visitors ar LAX, let alone fly in or out...she does everything thru' John Wayne.

hedgie said...

Munchie cravings...ate an early dinner....gotta go find something good! BBL.

deb said...

I fly out of Omaha at 7 AM on Tuesday morning. I am the designated airport shuffle driver on Thursday, I don't mind as long as I can avoid rush hour.

Mits said...

eagle at CALTRAN

Mits said...

flew in and out at Caltran

deb said...

Buck at Pix PA.

Mits said...

Finland cam is unstuck, but it is 3 in the morning there

deb said...

My computer doesn't like Caltrans, it freezes everything and then shuts down everything.

Mits said...

mine doesn't like it very much either.....that is one big boy at PA

Mema Jo said...

Been reading you two..... Glad hubby has landed! You'll be the next one, Deb! I viewed your pics and they are great - can't believe you caught the red tailed and juvie together..



Going to watch Cold Case this evening at 9...

NatureNut said...

Now that Pittsburgh won, they'll play Ravens. I like them both!!!Help! Guess whichever one wins, I'll root for them in Super Bowl!

Deb, great pics. You are so fortunate to be able to see all these critters & THX for sharing!Hope your flight plans work out.
Wanted to see Golden Globes on TV, but Fubby has something else on--if he's dozing in the chair, I'll change the channel!

Mits said...

good Cold Case tonight:)

Mits said...

DEB.......AWESOME PICS:)

Mits said...

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE:)

movin said...

Well, alas and alack, the Chargers just didn't have enough offense today, and the Steelers made them pay.

The Super Bowl could conceivably be played by two PA teams...that would be a little eerie.

**GOOD NIGHT**

**EVERYONE**


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

hedgie said...

Good night, fowl friends. Talk with you tomorrow. Peace and prayers.

Mema Jo said...

Cold Case was good...
Jim - do you mean the town of Erie PA?
lol That would be different if they did both win & play each other!

Mema Jo said...

Time to hit the sack! WHoo Hoo I didn't nap all day. I must be sick!

Good Night Everyone
Peace to you & yours
Prayers for all our many needs being
said

(((hugs))) ♥ Stay Warm!

deb said...

Good one, Jim!

Night all!

Lolly said...

Well, we get home from Denton and everyone is signing off. I'll just say we had a very enjoyable evening. My grandboys are "grander" then ever! Laurel fixed a very special dinner and cherry cheesecake pie. Yum! Theyn stuck 3 candles in it and sang HB in German, at least they told me that was what they sang. The tune was correct. The boys turned out all the lights for special affects. Now my birthdy is offically over. LOL

Nite all! Sweet dreams!

magpie said...

Well, I am just getting home...and there is one Sea Eagle at Finney's right now.

The moon tonight, was soooooo bright, really nice to see it.

I know probably everyone is snoozin', and I won't be far behind, already had a nap at the Grandson's .

xo

magpie said...

Hedgie: I was out of the room getting coffee when you called ! I saw immediately that you had, and we did call DOH - they were headed out that way, but might have gotten diverted to another place over in Jones Spring where Hedgesville VFD was, on an accident call. Bummer, your Bill Date got canceled ! :(

xo

magpie said...

Sea Eagle left, not long after I posted that it was there...

Deb - Ditto on everything everyone else said about you! Prayers that the weather will cooperate with your travel plans.

I'm treating myself to no alarm clock in the morning and plan on sleeping in, even at the risk of missing an early morning Eagle visit.

Paula, Great Video clips ... Thanks!

Good Night! xo z z z ☺

Good morning everyone out there in eagle land!!
