normabyrd said...

Yes MEGAN!---didn't reply!

ceil said...

Thanks Steve. Morning all. Sunny and cold in Baltimore.
Fun day at the plunge yesterday. Someone asked about wet suits. They are not aloud to wear them. You will see people standing in wet suits but they are Maryland State Police keeping everyone safe. All pledges are not in and will not be tallied for at least another month. Now.
Great to see BWE and their egg. Come on Lib and Belle.

floralgirl said...

I din't get an email from you-can you tell if it was sent-did it tell you it failed?

ceil said...

I think they want privacy. Looking at camera and telling us to go away.

ceil said...

Norma you have professionals helping you. Listen to them. We need your cheery thoughts on here. We are all in this together.

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.....thanks, Ceil for the heads up on the new thread...I always read my e-mails first, so it makes for an easy transition

floralgirl said...

Both back again.
Hello Helen and Ceil:)
Norma, I seet you two emails this am, did you get them?

Mits said...

I think Red needs to come north and look at her puter....it really seems like it is infected, Norma, what kind of virus remover do you use?...in any event make sure if you get someone in to look at it it is a professional...:)

floralgirl said...

Norma- where did you go? Don't make me send out a silver alert...

ceil said...

Silver Alert on Norma.

normabyrd said...

MEGAN---I have been on the phone!-----I certainly appreciate your help!!---

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks for the call over. Thank you Steve for the new thread. Hope you are seeing what we have been seeing. "EAGLES IN OUR NEST!!!"

floralgirl said...

Ok, sorry-did you get any of my emails? Do you have a virus program installed in your computer?

ceil said...

Never mind she is back.

ceil said...

Belle is fixing sticks again. I think she is telling him. No eggs until this nest is ready.

wvgal_dana said...

I don't know if this will work. I am trying it. The video of Our Dadster Dave on tv:

DAVE ON TV

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good Sunday morning eagle friends. First looked at the BWE cam and the egg was all alone. Don't like that site but mom/dad quickly appeared on the next refresh!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle in our nest this morning. What a beautiful site. I think we will soon have an egg of our own!! It is a balmy 27 degrees here in the big city.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Does Norfolk lay their eggs around the same time as us, Maine?

Mits said...

Sissy, Lisa says it is normal for after the first egg to see it alone, they are close by, and once the second and/or 3rd egg is laid they they will be on it all the time....I love that site

Mits said...

Belle just flew in

Mits said...

with a big stick

paula eagleholic said...

Belle just arrvied w/ a stick...some beaking...and freezing on the feed.

Morning, all.

Mema Jo said...

Good morning Paula. Hoping that yesterday's get together went well for you & that the b-day boy had fun!

Mits said...

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Paula, Sissy, Mema Jo, and everyone that has come in.

paula eagleholic said...

Brensin was totally covered in cake and icing :) I forgot my camera...will post a pic when DIL has sent them.

I saw Dave on TV...how cool...didn't quite read his post correctly last night, but saw Dana's link.

Mema Jo said...

wvgal_dana said...

Jim did you do your measuring ? Fly in with more sticks and sticks and sticks lol

paula eagleholic said...

Mema Jo said...

Sure wish my sound would come on!

wvgal_dana said...

Oh Paula can't wait to see that picture. ( :

paula eagleholic said...

Lib on the back, Belle in the bowl.

NBG usually has eggs a week or so before us, end of January as I recall.

movin said...


They just had a close-up face shot of Fatty the Crocodile on Pete's Pond site!

Mits said...

it was Molly sleeping in the tent...Maggie is a party girl, she had had a brief nap in the morning, and was on the beach when Dad went in:), she loves the crowds, Molly doesn't.

wvgal_dana said...

I see her V Paula

paula eagleholic said...

Hi Belle :)

Mema Jo said...

I was thinking the same thing Jim.
She is very determined to "tidy up the nest" & get things moving!

Mema Jo said...

"Hello there, our beautiful Belle"

Mits said...

I hope all the cam issues get resolved before the real season starts.

wvgal_dana said...

Liberty back in nest on still lol

wvgal_dana said...

Yep just as I said lol

paula eagleholic said...

Norfolk was FEB 1,3 8 last year...very close to us in egg laying times...wow, we could have eggs in 2 weeks folks!

Mema Jo said...

I misread your post last evening then..
I saw a small clip on the news at 11.
Didn't see anyone I knew!

Our eagles are really industrious today!
Can't be too long to go before an egg appears.. But I guess about 2-3 weeks.

Mema Jo said...

Something must be zooming around their nest.

paula eagleholic said...

I would guess it's the cold messing with our transmission

Mits said...

sure are keeping an eye on whatever it is...

wvgal_dana said...

Dave your welcome..I do think snow brings in the birds. How much snow is it calling for up your way?

hedgie said...

Dave, you could take some pics of the birds at your feeder!! Bet some snow-dappled birdies are pretty! That way we can enjoy the beauty without getting the nasty stuff!!!

floralgirl said...

Yeah, thanks, Dana, I just watched it.
Thanks for sharing your pics, Dave-looks like it was a great event to attend.

wvgal_dana said...

GOOD INFO FROM LISA

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good afternoon everyone. I am blogging from my new handy-dandy laptop computer that I purchased from Walmart for $348!! I love it so far.

hedgie said...

Check this out!!!

The Dalliance of the Eagles

Skirting the river road, (my forenoon walk, my rest)
Skyward in air a sudden muffled sound, the dalliance of the eagles,
The rushing amorous contact high in space together
The clinching interlocking claws, a living, fierce, gyrating wheel,
Four beating wings, two beaks, a swirling mass tight grappling,
In tumbling turning clustering loops, straight downward falling,
Till o'er the river pois'd, the twain yet one, a moment's lull,
A motionless still balance in the air, then parting, talons loosing,
Upward again on slow-firm pinions slanting, their separate diverse flight,
She hers, he his, pursuing.
--- Walt Whitman, The Dalliance of the Eagles

Although Walt Whitman had never actually seen the bald eagle's courtship ritual called cartwheeling, he wrote The Dalliance of the Eagles based on the description a friend had given him of this extraordinary displ

hedgie said...

Well, Sharon, you lucky eagle!!
What a buy! What make?

Lolly said...

Good Sunday afternoon! Thanks Dana, enjoyed the video with Dave.

Going to Dallas shortly. Have been invited over to eat, going over again Wed. to babysit, and then again Sat. for Zach's party. I am baking and decorating his cake this week. Going to be busy!

Cool day today, 57, and bright sun shine. Rain forcast for tomorrow. We need it!

Going to take Zach his book today. That way in won't be lost in the avalanche of toy gifts. Going to be 30 children and 30 adults at his 3rd birthday party. They do things in a BIG way!

Lolly said...

Hey, Sharon. I am on my laptop as well. Love it! I can sit in my comfy chair and blog away!!!

Lolly said...

Gettin sleepy, time for a power nap! BBL

EAGLE

floralgirl said...

Still an eagle in our nest, yes? Norma, SPYBOT is good, you can download it online- then run it-when my kids computer had a trojan virus, even her antivirus program wouldn't work properly, I had to download spybot and run it to fix her computer. If you aren't comfortable doing that, call a computer geek.
Gotta go next door for dinner-sigh....bbl

POOF

buck on Pix

deb said...

I am finally home--it was a long day out and about, but two pairs of long underwear did the trick. Only my fingers and face got cold. We were traipsing through some trees looking for owls and got into a cocklebur field--Yuck! I got so tangled in them they untied my boots.

Mits said...

eagle off egg at BWE

Mits said...

hey Deb, glad you stayed warm

deb said...

Snowing in Oregon.

ceil said...

Deb, I just spoke to my son and he said the same thing. First snow they have had since we were there.

deb said...

The snow was almost gone from the nest there, it has filled back in some. When we were in CA, the brown pelicans were dying and they were trying to figure out why. They finally found out they were suffering from frost bite from the snows in Washington and Oregon.

Mits said...

frostbite.....poor pelicans:(

ceil said...

I saw about the pelicans but did not see why. Thanks Deb Poor things

Mema Jo said...

Looks like our weather forecast is for snow Tues into Wed the a one day breather and MAYBE snow again on Fri...

Today was perfect weather here in MD

B-day 4 yr old looked like Christmas all over! Guess that is what happens when you have parents, grandparents and great grandparents...

ceil said...

You are right Jo and great aunts and uncles.

Watching movie on TV - might need to miss Cold Case. Big decision here to be made!

Both eagles in LW

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Hedgie, I disappeared for a little while. Sorry about that. It is an Acer computer. It has 160 gb hard drive and 3 gb memory, DVD writer, WiFi card built in. I love it.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

How is everybody this evening?

hedgie said...

Sharon...I disappeared for awhile, too! I think that is what my daughter has...she seems happy with hers. If my tax refund is big enough, and if I can get a wireless router for my Hughesnet, I might look into getting one. THen I wouldn't have to be holed up in the office to watch our nest!!

deb said...

The eagle at BWE is so still you would think the cam is frozen. Of course, I type this as she decides to move her head.

deb said...

I am tired tonight, off to bed early. TTUT

Unofficial Buddy Update

"At the eagle release today we asked about our eagle.

Ed said he is pretty sure his beak will never be capable to tear food enough to be released.

He is becoming so used to being handled from all the procedures they do that he grabs his cage and ' demands food '. So much so that he has learned command " Go back"
When anyone comes - even to his neighbors cage - he grabs and wants food. with a stern
" Go back" he goes to his perch.

Ed was surprised how smart he is and thinks he will be given to a facility with a large aviary OR he may be used as an education eagle."

Ed may be able to use him at WCV since he lost Justus.

This information was posted by Rose on the NBG forum.

magpie said...

Hi Everyone -

Pix cam switching to a salt lick view, with a pretty doe and snow....oops doe disappeared.

Get you last "live" views of BWE, nest goes nighty night in 5 minutes...until 5 am....☺

magpie said...

Hi Paula
Nice Angel Avatar!

Poor old Buddy, but I would say he has made the History Books! I bet he will be a very good Education Eagle....

BWE cam all asleep now for the night.

Mema Jo said...

Hey There You Night Owls.
I am going to head into my roost!
Watched Hallmark Movie - it was very good
Thanks for the update on Buddy

Good Night
Peace to you and yours
Prayers for everyone's needs being said

magpie said...

Good Night Mema Jo... tomorrow I hope to see the Live Eagle Show same time as you ! ☺ ♥ xo

hedgie said...

If they send Buddy someplace else, I sure hope that they continue with the good care he has gotten at Harrisonburg. I'm sure the beak dremeling will have to be a forever procedure.

hedgie said...

Me, too, Jo--movie and time to hit the tub. Margy, don't stay up all night! Talk to you all tomorrow. Peace.

magpie said...

Wow just saw the Dave TV Video, great! I have a hat just like his! Ha Ha

Thanks DANA for posting that blue link! ☺

Hedgie...: I won't stay up all night, but I will read another chapter of your book! Have been in hiatus since starting this three-day marathon. ☺

Costume Lady said...

To pick up where I left off this morning...Dustin ate a Pot Pie for breakfast (remember, I let hime eat anything he wants) and then ham, eggs and hash browns. I set out his clothes for church and after he dressed, he called me into his room and lo and behold, his pants were too tight in the waist! This is wonderful to see...finally getting some meat on his bones:)

Jo, Cold Case was good and I, too, watched LOVING LEAH....sweet movie.

I saw our DAVE on the video...we are getting some very talented and soon-to-be, famous, bloggers on here;) Wonderful group of people!

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SWEET DREAMS
PRAYERS FOR ALL

Good Night Margy.

About my pictures:
Got some nice ones from the Outdoor part of the Open House, mostly around the Sales Table.
Great photos there, including one of Mema Jo, Jennifer, and Aaron.
Also Bob Quinn. A nice one of Tom and Sandra "consulting" with Michael the Famous Waiter, and a little of this and that. Will get them to someone who can scan and post. Also, saw lots of May Apples, Cardinal Flowers, Butterfly Weed....tells you how old these rolls of film were !

Good Night, Everyone, see you at First Light!

Peace, Love and Prayers xo ☺ ♥
