GOOD MORNING, STEVE, THANK YOU!
thanks WANDA AND STEVE:)
This is so great...every time I stop by the 'puter and check to see if we have a full nest, WE DO! I guess it is that time of the year:):)
The little girl was amazing, she was just a tiny thing, it is good that he grasped onto the back of his car in the garage and could pull himself up...called one of his close friends across the street and she will check on him too....
Made the jump. Good morning again eagle friends!
Good morning everyone!
eagles must have spent the night at the nest in LW, eyes still glowing still dark there
Well sent big Rig an email. Says it might take him a week to read and respnd. Hmmm I think he might miss the spot I suggested he stop at while he is passing through LOL.
he answered mine in a couple of days, Glo, but alas, he probably will be pass the spot you want him to stop, he does take some great pics of where he has been, updates them once a week.
osprey at CC, looks like she might be laying on an egg
He is past where I sent him suggestion for. Maybe he will mark it and next time through. Have a friend very close to ewhere he is now maybe I should send her over and tell him to turn around LOL.
he probably would stop if he knows there is something interesting to see and take a pic, maybe we can get him on the blog.
great pic of XL with this reportWednesday, January 28As Lynn pointed out in the last update, Xi Lan has developed an interest in the automatic water bowls. He is able to stand on his hind legs to drink from the water bowls in the dens, but he cannot reach the top of the water bowl in the dayroom. To remedy this, we installed a step for him to more easily gain access to the water bowl. Upon installation, it took him a mere five minutes to discover the step. He was able to climb the step with little difficulty and was able investigate the top of the water bowl for the first time. He is quite a quick learner, and found out that water is not only good for drinking, but it is also very good for sitting in. He actually climbed into the water bowl and sat in it. I don't really know if he liked this, because he wanted to get out pretty fast. To accomplish this, he jumped out and tumbled to the mulch below. This was all funny enough. But in true child form, the first thing he did upon hitting the ground was bounce up and run over to mommy, dripping the whole way. I don't know how much he enjoyed his first bath, but I can guarantee that it will not be the last time he ends up in the water bowl. Xi Lan weighed 8.7 kg (19.18 lbs) today.Kenn HarwoodLead Keeper of Carnivores
BRS, is stopping somewhere
Mits the paper should have stayed there til later. I was out yesterday and it was the second worst day I have ever had. The ice was terrible. The President needed only to try to walk on this mess. I always tell people we do not get snow alot. We get a slippery ice. Sorry to go off.Back to eagles and pandas. I could go off on why Atlanta cannot get a sponsor when people have offered to help. But I won't
Good Morning all caught up on blog need to check emails.Deb, Daves and Loretta's pics need to check out. Congratulations to our new celebrity Deb. Hope they publish lots of your pics. Norma (such a great lady) will be so happy I'm sure to be home (back on blog).
Thanks Mits!! We are missing out on so much with Luney!! He is absolutely adorable!
I would like to invite Pres to come and try to walk up my neighbors' driveway Ceil:)
getting light at LW, can see eagles much better, one just came into the nest from the trr branch
BRS, moving down the highway again
correction: tree branch:)
too bad no sound at LW, they are really screaming
and they poofed at LW
been almost a month since Atlanta has been off the air:(
getting dark in Finland
if there is an egg in CC osprey nest, she was just turning it, must be really a deep egg cup
goofy panda trying to fight with tree at NZ, can' tell if it is Tai or Tian yet, it is in Tians' yard, but he and Tai switch sometimes
That would have been so great to have seen our Luney. Making his way to the water. Then sitting in it!! What a hoot!
Good morning, everyone. I am all caught up on morning chores, except the bird baths need water.
Helen, I think the CC Osprey had the first egg on Saturday. I wish we could see into the nest.
**gOOD THURSDAY MORN****EVeRYBoDY**C(°ٿ°)DJim
Deb that woodpecker has the suet pack he was pecking at some. He prefers my feeder instead. He is awesome to look at. So close you can see the hairs sticking out around his beak close to his face. lol
Was that a monkey on the hummer cam just now?
GOOD MORNING JIM ( : talked to a lady that works in El Dorado Hills, California yesterday. Do you know where that is?
they have been known to visit, Sissy, they want a lot of people to visit the site, so that they can justify making improvements like sound and other things, but they need more visitors
Ecuador update.........January 27thA few people have been getting in touch recently asking when there will be the sound and full screen additions to the cam – well the answer is soon! Please try to tell as many people as you can about the project because the more people we have visiting the site the easier it is for us to justify upgrading the system! Remember that the webcam and all other material on the site is taken from some of the last remaining tropical forests in the world so please, if you like what you see, don’t forget to make a donation to the World Land Trust and help us save these amazing places – forever!
Hello everyone.. Checking out the cams & seeing that all is well.Going to read earlier comments on otherthread - see what I miss!BRB
might be an ant eater Sissy, it is huge
I don't have that link, Mits. Can you forward it?
on its way Jo
Was that a Moose walking down the road? Just came in where he is stopped on road and something was in road.????
Thanks for the link
I wasn't watching DanaDon't see anything right nowBut BRT is still stopped.......
Still catching up on blogs, but don't want to forget what I have to say about what I've read so far! ???Does that make sense???LOL!Mits, thankful that your neighbor is okay, and how nice of the young lady to help. My mom's driveway is quite steep, and the development would not allow her to install a wrought-iron handrail, so if sis isn't going on a particular day, BIL stops on his way to/from work to get her mail in for her.Ceil.....you didn't fall, did you?? Hope you are okay. Rant away...we understand!
Fun story about Xi Lan, BUT....where's the VIDEO??? Bunch of dummies, right Ceil and Mits?
Sis & Sharon...don't understand about HDTV...is it small enough to fit on a desk? I thought they were regular-sized televisions...and how could you get computer screen up on them? Sorry...I'm a little technically challenged still!
I hope he is, Lynn, just saw the neighbor I called going to check on him, they are originals to this neighbor, we will be here 25 years in April, still a relative newbie:)
finally for it to refresh and see the eagle...2 eggs in view at BWE too.
I saw the eagle on the still cam and had to refresh my live feed, also.
Lib in the Nest?
I'm constantly refreshing the cam to get live feed to move and sound to come on...not looking good for all this to be fixed in time for the season.
Lynn I SO AGREE WITH YOU --- why didn't they put that on a video so we all could see...grrrrrrThat would have been so cute!
Lib waiting on Belle.
BRS on the move again:)
I read that article from Atlanta and felt that they were RUBBING OUR NOSES in the fact that we can't see. If they really were interested in what we are seeing and thinking, they would have allowed us to see the water bowl incident!!
Didn't have to wait too long!!Aren't they loverly??
Hey, Jim, hear that you are getting the Santa Anna winds again. It is slightly sunny here, w/ light snow flurry activity and 29°. Wish I was someplace warm!
yes Wanda, didn't they promise us videos:(
They certainly did, Helen.
guess we have to write to them to hold them accountable.:)
Lunchtime in the nest?
This must be their HONEYMOON...spending a lot of time in the bedroom;)
I had to look up El Dorado Hills, Dana.It appears to be a suburb to the east of Sacramento...way up north from here.C(°ٿ°)DJim
really building up the nest.
Baby, come back!
Wonder what that was all about??
Thanks Jim I knew you was the man to find it...ty
She was yelling her head off!
Lynn, my HDTV is about 3 inches deep, 42" TV. It can hook to a computer with a normal monitor cable. It really isn't practical to do that but it is possible. I am thinking about getting a bigger monitor, though.
It looked like a lot of downey feathers are in the nest when she flew away...flutterd all over the bedroom area.
Dana, that may be near where Anne-Marie lives.
Mema Jo forgotten to tell you. I spoke to Sandra. She is taking time off from the Wellness Center. She is doing good. Will start back up in the spring. Was certainly nice to hear her voice.
Did not fall Lynn but it was really bad. I was stupid. Was just out trying to get to my neighbors to clean her yard. Hubby tried before and it was not soft enough. You still really have to watch. It is still cold here. 29 I think. Deb know that is not cold to you.LOLWanda and Lynn agree with you about Atlanta. Sure hope Mei has a cub. Watched Tai 24/7.
My cousin has a small TV in her kitchen, which hangs from underneath the counter. Would be perfect on my desk. I just want too many things:(
Eagle at BWO eating. Hope it is not the male. Boy I really am in a negative mood today. Sorry. Think I will go get something to eat. Cream cheese and olive sandwich.
geez, look at the time, have not eaten yet...
I have sent Atlanta a couple of emails telling them they did not live up to their end of the bargain. I also asked them if there were actively seeking sponsors or not. Of course, didn't hear anything back from them. THEY ARE THE PITS!!
Okay, Sis...got it now!Dana, I'm sure that Anne MArie knows where El Dorado Hills is if it's near Sacramento!Just found out that even tho' school here was on a 2 hr. delay, bus driver called daughters' house and told SIL that she couldn't make the run on the back roads, and that the kids would get an excused absence...doesn't that beat all? Daughter said it was pretty hairy going to work--she was off yesterday, fortunately, and SIL drove her on Tues.
I have never gotten an answer from them when I emailed them 2 years ago to get some corporate sponsers, now the corporate sponsers don't have the extra money, I guess.
The 20's can be cold here, too, especially if it is windy out.
ice is not nice:(
Ceil, eat a banana...it will improve your mood!!! Right, Helen?? BTW...how is MM???
What is that ball looking thing to the left of the eagle at BWE??C(°ٿ°)DJim
yes it does, Lynn....jubby ate the last one this a.m., need to go to store to get some more....actually am craving them now:)
I had banana yogurt, does that count?
Have a banana and a little chocolate, Ceil, and you'll be the sweetest thing in the neighborhood at least until dinner.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Is Steve offline?
hmm sounds like a nice combo, Jim...yes that counts too, Deb
Remember! I am a moving object! If I lose signal or switch towers the camera may drop out.Just reload your page and check back in a few minutes. HE IS BACK NOW
Yep, there he is!
HA, I thought you were asking about Steve from NCTC, Sissy. Now I get it. I was confused!Still two eggs at BWE.
Me, too, Deb!!! Now I get it, too!! LOL!
and I knew exactly who she was talking about....lol:)
I thought that's what you meant too, but I still don't 'get it.'C(°ٿ°)DJim
Don't have any "nanners" either, Mits....gotta go rustle up some lunch. BBL.
Big Rig Steve, trucker cam!!
BIG RIG STEVE
There's a pretty interesting Catalina Report posted by Steffi now. C(°ٿ°)DJim
Oh, that Steve. I guess I did read something about that yesterday.C(°ٿ°)DJim
I had my interview and at 2 o'clock I am bringing my pictures over to the magazine office so she can pick what she wants.1. How did I hear about the project?2. What did I expect to see?3. Did I know anything about Osprey before the project?4. Why is it important to reintroduce the Osprey to the Missouri River area?5. What was the best thing about the project?It seems like there was another, but I can't remember what it was. She said her article is way too long, so I don't know if I will get in it or not. She is sending it to Janie for approval.
keeping fingers crossed, Deb:)
Out of bananas and hubby just got back from the store. No chocolate either except hot. Look out neighborhood I'm in a mood.MM is good Lynn. Got to get that picture from her to send to Wanda of Margy.
Have you noticed that when our pair are looking to our left, they are always looking upward?? Makes me think they are looking at an intruder in the skies every time.C(°ٿ°)DJim
we are up to 37°:)
From Tom Otto on Kent nest:The nest is still very small, but Loraine reports that nest building activity is picking up. We will have the cameras up soon, I promise.
Eagle in LW.My appt with SD Magazine got moved to tomorrow. I told you she wasn't her dad!
I noticed Big Rid Steve changed his destination. Going to Ohio now and not Pa.
Both eagles in LW.
With a big fish.
that is good news about Kent, Deb....must be going to pick up a load, Red:)
Howdy all:) I have come to the conclusion that the only good ice is when it is floating in a nice cold drink...Schools were delayed two hours today, and I figured if I was gonna try to make it out the lane I should run some errands while I was out. Main roads are fine around here, some parking lots were still a mess. Temp is up to 37° and the sun is shining.
yep lunch at LW, or brunch
there you are Megan, was going to put out a BLONDE ALERT for you soon.
lol...I'm only blonde in the summer...just issue an ice alert...
There is nothing worse than driving on ice--yuck!
Good news about Kent. I enjoyed that so much last year. Watching the sun come up was always so special (on three cams, no less):)
sun is doing a good job of clearing jubby's side of the driveway:), might have to go out and do a little work on my side.
I will take snow over ice any day of the week
Blonde Alert is good, Helen. LMBO;)
I would've rather had a foot of snow than this darn ice. I need to go scrape some more off the lane while it's slushy, but my arms are so sore from the past 2 days, I can't get motivated.
Good Catalina report, Jim.Megan, did you see where 4 correctional officers were suspended without pay? Two in the tower and two who were (supposedly) doing head counts. Of course, union is protesting.
I think that I must be #76 everytime I try to "ride" with Steve! I've only gotten cam up once!
I Love-I love-I love the Lake Washington site
Mits, go pour some hot water on your side of the driveway and then it will be a little easier to clear off!
They are both still in the nestOne of course you can't miss is stillhaving lunch..The other is perched way up on the limband if you just put it up - you will need to strain your eyes to find him
Oh, Megan, I was so afraid that would happen...hope your back is holding up...that gets me b/4 the arms! Take some ibuprofen.Have you been able to take the dog to the vet yet? If not, did you try some benadryl?
Deb, any idea when the mag will go to press? Did she do the interview over the phone? Not very professional, I must say!
Hedgie - When the BRT cam comes up it may "Buffer" for a few - then double click on the cam & full screen should come up -then double click again and it willbe the regular screen..........
Talked to lady at vets office, she told me to try Benadryl, so I just gave dog somw.
Lynn, there are only 11 views now, you can find out how many are on by going to his where is Big Rigg Steve page
NZ Small clawed otter cam Asia TrailMits What am I seeing on this cam?
Yes the interview was over the phone. I am sure she is behind on getting the article out to be proofed. It will be in the March/April issue, I got my January/February one the end of December.EAGLE
Now back to one.
just 1 now
Jo that is part of their out door pool, did you see an animal??
It is amazing to se her eye so well in the cam pictures.
Back to one.
GRRRRRRR, wish the sound and live feed would stay on for more than a minute or two at a time...miss so much
WOW !!! I just checked Glo'seagle photos on her flickr web siteand they are awsom,I just love towatch eagles soar.Indiana Nesting Eagles----Daveps. I forgot to say hi to everyone
I got the slo-motion version of HP on nest pictures.
I missed the action, feed keeps stopping here, too. Gonna walk outside and feed birds and move some ice.
just opened up back door and can hear a woodpecker nearby....
I was just checking out Deb's new eagle pics and reminded me of last night, when I looked at her last offering, after I made a comment, I had to type in the "word"...it was FULNEST..believe it or not:)
Thanks for good tips on Big Rig...got it now!
Dave Must have been arriving at my Flickr account just as I finished uploading and getting a new Glo's Glompse's ready for tonights Feed. I did get to go out to enjoy eagles for a while yesterday. First time in several days.And Deb Is flying as high as her feathered friends. I can just imagine how excited she is. Keep us posted on the happenings and if we get to see any articles or maybe point out to us the photos that they do choose.I did miss the HP at our nest though. I was getting things taken care of here so I can nap and get ready to go to work tonight with Dex :). I am so very happy that he is up to going with me and well considering the Vet is doing an awesome job but has a fee to match, Dex and I got to go to work LOL. Naptime at my house now.
Two eggs visible in BWE.
Isn't that the coolest omen, Wanda? Deb got a great video, didn't she? The HP times are SO brief, it's a wonder it does any good!!!!Please add Paulleo to prayers...he hasn't been well...and was snowed in at PA house for quite some time. He's doing better, and is home in CharlesTown, trying to catch up on computer, but still has health concerns. We all know how well our prayers work! AMEN.
Has everyone read how BRS got his cat TK? At the top of the page click on "Home" then "Cat Bio". Good story.
yes Red he has some interesting stuff to read and see
The high speed video at full screen going through Chicago during rush hour is a little hair raising. lol
darn missed Chicago, looks like he is in Indiana now, according to his map.
eagle eating at BWO
latest from Lisa at BWE....01/29/09: The parents have created a nice nest cup for the two eggs. If a third egg is coming, it should be here by the end of the day.
Hey, Red...been through Chicago more than once during rush hour, in the Eagle Express. We always try to plan so that doesn't happen, but the toll road really slows us down (even though we try to allow for delays). It is nerve wracking and takes me 2 hours and 1 or 2 cocktails to get over it enough to carry on with my business!
I think he's in Ohio. He was in Indy 2 hours ago.
lol....Wanda, couple of eagle talons to soothe the spirit
EAGLE JUST BROUGHT IN A BIG STICK
I've been through Chicago during rush hour to Wanda. Steve takes you through in just a few minutes with high speed video. Put it on full screen and hang on. lol
my yellow pin still has him in Indiana
Now that was a big stick!
you can tell he is flying solo
I know, had to chuckle, would have loved to have seen it flying across the field
they are really starting to get down to business
BRS has the wipers on
Yellow pin marks his last stop. Yes it's in Indy but it was two hours ago. He should be over 100 miles east of there now.
Nest always looks beautiful this time of day.
cool sign just said WELCOME TO OHIO, AS STEVE JUST ROAD BY, think he must have froze the cam so we could view it
good afternoon everyone
How are my eagle momsters and dadsters doing?
hello, Thelma, just just missed a visit
MITS-I hope they come right back.
sure they will, they seem to be real busy with nestorations
New thread and photo of solar panel and an eagle Head on over :).
