Are you watching the pandas? Great close up of a panda face at NZ!

floralgirl said...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Tried to save a pic of it but I don't know if it did. Mozilla keeps crashing on me.

floralgirl said...

Not watching pandas..just nctc nest.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

No, it didn't save it! Darn, that was a great face shot!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

That is close to Lib's favorite sitting spot too.

Hmmm. went to bus stop- back- eagle still there- must be waiting for someone...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Costume Lady said...

Looks like breakfast is almost over.
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE
Wow, did I sleep in! Felt good:)

NatureNut said...

I still have eagle on my cam. It is a little jerky, like it's refreshing every 10 seconds or so.
But a beautiful sight on this dreary day. No eagle here at Park when I came in.

Mits said...

missed takeoff...blog crashed on me...:(

Costume Lady said...

Left-over feathers/fur will make a nice lining for the nest...better than fish scales:)

normabyrd said...

NATURENUT!!----I have an EAGLE too!----Eating & then backing away looking to the sky!----

Costume Lady said...

Going to see if the Capt. left me any coffee.

normabyrd said...

HELEN!!---I watched take-off!--then warmed my coffee & there he/she is---like NATURENUT said!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' WANDA!!---Did you get to see the EAGLE?

deb said...

What a wonderful morning wake up treat!

deb said...

Good morning, everyone, have to do e-mail and catch up on the blog.

Mits said...

looks like she is going to finish breakfast

deb said...

For a while I wondered if the cam was stuck, she was so still. Then she started moving around some more.

deb said...

Poof, that was a nice visit.

deb said...

EAGLE BACK!

deb said...

NESTORATIONS, WITH A FALL!

NatureNut said...

Nestorations going on. Woman's work is never done!!!

deb said...

It looked like she tripped over the stick, it was big. Looking over the edge, it could be Lib, sitting in Lib's spot.

deb said...

My cam is a little sticky this morning.

wvgal_dana said...

An Eagle read comments

Good Morning Mits, Deb, Norma, Megan, Sissy, Loretta, Wanda hope I didn't miss anyone.

wvgal_dana said...

Wow fur in that nest everywhere. Bet you all enjoyed all that plucking. lol

wvgal_dana said...

Did anyone see what the meal was?

wvgal_dana said...

I still show an eagle in the nest at the launch area. Does anyone else?????

deb said...

Both eagles at BWE!

wvgal_dana said...

2 eagles in nest BWE

deb said...

I see an eagle, Dana.

Lolly said...

Good morning all! Have been lurkiing while reading the paper. Nice long visit. I don't know why I had not thought of turning on the laptop before reading the paper. Anyway, I read and watched. Good life!

Our ice is gone, 39 this morning and warming up. Sounds like you are heading into winter weather.

NatureNut said...

Sitting on the launch pad, but still there.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb is our cam re-running an the eagle isn't actually there? Or is it there?

Mits said...

I have just rain here, Lolly

wvgal_dana said...

I just brought up the still cam and it is showing an eagle there in our nest.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Lolly

Both left BWE

Lolly said...

Morning Mits! Did not get on last night. I watched The Bachelor, even though Jack was making fun of me.

Lolly said...

Good morning Dana!

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Deb still there. Glad others see the eagle and not just me. Sound is skipping some this morning.

hedgie said...

Morning all.
Still cam /Pop up looks to me like it's frozen....not a single move in 10 mins. even tho' I refreshed...clock is correct...hmmmmm...???

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle back at BWE

Morning Lynn !

Lolly said...

Do you have sound?

deb said...

I think the eagle is just sitting and watching the activity in the world. You can see the head moving. It doesn't appear to be looping.

wvgal_dana said...

I just seen the head move after a refresh.

2 eagles at BWE

Lolly said...

Eagle is just sitting still. Just saw a truck go by.

deb said...

Poof, that answers that question.

deb said...

Beautiful weather here, Lolly. It is going to be sunny and 37 today.

paula eagleholic said...

What is that long white thing at BWE??

wvgal_dana said...

Paula you remember those corn flowers they bring in each year. I think it is part of one.

Lolly said...

Good morning Paula!

Great Deb, it is supposed to be partly sunny here tody, but so far it is gloomy.

deb said...

Kent Forum is back up and Tom Otto has a WONDERFUL update:
t looks like we'll be doing the maintenance work for this nest next wed. So if all goes well these cameras should be back online by that afternoon. Also, this nest should be streaming live with sound and night vision. Additionally, there has been some talk of installing a PTZ camera, which would offer many new viewing angles.

Tom

wvgal_dana said...

Wow great update ty Deb sound and night light wow weee

NatureNut said...

Poof, I guess. What a wonderful, long visit! Better than watching TV!
This retarded 'puter will not show bottom desk bar when a window is open, so I can't put pop-up over anything but desktop. Bummer...

wvgal_dana said...

Paula is your sound at our nest choppy...spitting?????

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' DEB---DANA---& LOLLY!---I am most certain my picture froze NATURENUT!!----I had to go off & come back on!!---but it was glorious sight!!!

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle back at BWE

deb said...

Snowing on the moose cam.

Lolly said...

Dana, my sound is mostly out and yes, a little static.

wvgal_dana said...

My sound is good when I go to IWS sites. Yet on our nest it has started that spitting? Does anyone know what I need to do to fix it?????

wvgal_dana said...

Ok thank you Lolly ... then maybe I can't fix it if others having same problem. hummmm

Lolly said...

Good morning Norma! How are you today. Sending you a morning (((hug)))!

normabyrd said...

HEDGIE!---Didn't mean to miss you!----I called daughter & her EAGLE was frozen too!---But WOW!---They were here a long time this morning!----

wvgal_dana said...

Eagle at BWO

wvgal_dana said...

Lolly said...

Deb, can you send me a blue thingy for the moose cam? Do not have it here on my laptop. Gee, I would have to get up and go in the other room to get it. LOL

wvgal_dana said...

Think I'll get some breakfast and coffee. Don't think we will be going to get grociers. From what Margy was saying about weather best stick to home.

paula eagleholic said...

Dana - sorry, can't help you out on the sound issue - my sound here is very bad as it is...can't hear most of the stuff ya'll hear when it's working properly.

Yes, could be one of those thingys at BWE...was thinking a feather at first...but does look more like a seed pod.

wvgal_dana said...

lol Lolly I read that funny

Yes Paula you have the right name for it...duh me

deb said...

hedgie said...

Lolly, here's link for moose cam:

Moosecam

Lolly said...

Thanks Deb!!!!

Well, come on Norma! I have two guest rooms. You can have your choice! Though the sun has not peeked out yet.

hedgie said...

Whoops...doesn't work!!!! Wonder what I did wrong?? Let me try again!

Moosecam

hedgie said...

Okay, that's a good link!!!

normabyrd said...

LOLLY!---Thanks--I'm packing! ho!

Lolly said...

Thanks you wonderful friends. You have kept me from getting up out of my chair. Oh! Perhaps that is not good, I may get stuck here. Jack gave me an electric cup warmer, so here I sit with continuous hot coffee, feet up and comfy!

Lolly said...

What do you want for breakfast, Norma? Sausage and homemade bread or one of Jack's wonderful omelets. Sigh!!! Today is is oatmeal or cold cereal. :(

normabyrd said...

2 EAGLES---BWO--

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning everyone - just popping in to make sure the eagles are dry!
Still up like 36° no freezing yet.

Here is the link to Tom Otto's news that Deb mentioned

Tom Otto on the Kent nest

Mema Jo said...

Feeling pretty well
I'll be back later to chat

BBL

normabyrd said...

Hope JO is feeling better this am!!-----All the FLAMINGOS are out at the NZOO!----Saw one JUVIE this am!!---they grow fast!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' JO!!---I was just thinking about you!!----GREAT MINDS!!

normabyrd said...

LOLLY---I think I will arrive on a 'FRIDAY' morning this fall when the COWBOYS are playing in the new stadium!!! ho!

paula eagleholic said...

Eagles at WE and TH

There has been a redtailed hawk visiting the WE nest over the last couple of days! It was just there again a couple of minutes ago...

Lolly said...

Yea! Norkolk cam is back up! I love that cam!

Lolly said...

Hey Norma, that sounds great! Buying us all tickets?

That thing is monstrous! We have watched it going up, as we can see it driving to Dallas.

Our son Michael, who is an attorney in Dallas has many connections, including going to law school with one of Jerry Jones' sons. Therefore he has been to the games in Jerry's box. Also, his former firm had a box, so at Texas stadium one time he had the box and it was just our family and friends in the box. More fun!

hedgie said...

Hi, Jo!!! Glad you are feeling perkier!

normabyrd said...

LOLLY---I may start walking now---might get there just in time to sit with you all in JERRY'S box this fall!! ho!

floralgirl said...

Sound is in and out for me too.

Lolly said...

Well, I think we all know now it is not our computers but the cam that has the sound going in and out.

floralgirl said...

Yeah, either that or we all have hearing issues.....

hedgie said...

My ex had a friend who was an usher at the Skins old stadium (RFK)...he gave us tickets for a game on a Thanksgiving weekend, playing San Fran. We were in the end zone. It was SO cold, and I couldn't believe how tiny everyone looked on the field...it was a big disppointment, and our wonderful Skins fans were SO loud that you couldn't hear what was on the PA speaker.....I decided I liked watching on TV much better than being there in person! And I was ALOT younger then! Wouldn't mind going to the "new" stadium once, in warm weather...a box seat would be oh-so-nice!

Lolly said...

The box rally was fun! We had food, drinks, and a bathroom. Felt like we were important people, well, for at least a few hours! LOL Joseph was there too. Got a cute picture of him looking down on the game. He was about 5 or 6 at the time. He really did not know how lucky he was.

Lolly said...

Sun has finally come out! Sky is blue with fluffy clouds. Temp up to 47.

I am going to have to get up from here soon and resume putting away Christmas. I will when I finish my coffee. Also, working my morning suduko puzzle.

normabyrd said...

I love the NORFOLK nest!----Can't wait until they start hatching a bunch of 'little rebels'!!----That sight is just beautiful!!---Pray all goes well this year!!!

normabyrd said...

MEGAN!---What have you been doing with all this time on your hands!
Bet you lie in bed & eat chocolates!----ho!!----When do you start again with the planting, etc.?

floralgirl said...

Oh, Norma- I wish....
Workling on paperwork- taxes..ugh..
Seed catalogs are in a pile on table. Hope to start planting in late Feb.- early March.
Things are complicated here right now- financial difficulties.. there's just so little work available here in the construction trade...hubby tried for an hour to get thru on the phone to unemployment office- then stormed out- think he ran away from home- don't blame him- just wish I had thought of it first...lol..

normabyrd said...

WHOA DANA!---What have you folks been doing since Christmas is over?---still swimming?---That sounds good!----I am kinda happy to get back into receiving mail & papers everyday---ho!---Guess I need structure!!! ho!

wvgal_dana said...

Sorry Megan that construction is down. We know he'll be back. Sure it is a downer at times. I remember the 4 1/2 year lay off for us.

Norma yes tomorrow we hit the water class again for exercising.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning everyone!

Lolly said...

Megan, sounds like you could use a few prayers. Things are tight right now. Our traveling has certainly been curtailed. Just sitting and waiting for things to get better.

Have finished suduko and coffe. Better get off my tush and get something accomplished. Could easily sit here all day. Sigh...

BBL

paula eagleholic said...

It's Lib in the nest w/ a stick!!

paula eagleholic said...

Now working on the fluff

paula eagleholic said...

2 eagles now....my video is froze...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

2 eagles. Lunch time.

floralgirl said...

Thanks, but I don't see it.. I don't think the housing industry will ever be what it was, cetainly not for a long time. So many houses built for people who were trying to flip them for profit- flooded the market, now with so many foreclosures, the main work is commercial, but the ecomomy is so bad that has slowed too. Time for hubby to find a new career, which is easeier said than done, there aren't a lot of places hiring, someone with his skills.

normabyrd said...

MEGAN!---Didn't think of husband's
work!---So sorry---I know jobs are scarce all over!!--I just supposed he was carried over!----I was wondering when you started planting again!!----Getting in touch with any of the government offices are a pain!!!----I often think they have to take a 'nasty' test before they are hired!!!--HANG IN THERE!---

floralgirl said...

I've got video, but no sound.

NatureNut said...

Wow!! 2 for lunch?

Lolly said...

Ahh! Leftovers! Yum!

paula eagleholic said...

Lib is back w/ fluff!!

Video choppy here...

hedgie said...

Lunchtime in our nest!

paula eagleholic said...

There goes Lib again...

hedgie said...

Notice the blue hue to the tips of feathers? Cool! Only one now.

paula eagleholic said...

And he's back! Busy eagle today!

hedgie said...

2nd back!

paula eagleholic said...

Well, choppy pic is better than none at all!!

paula eagleholic said...

Man, that was huge piece she just ate!

hedgie said...

Do you think that the NCTC folks with windows looking toward the nest sit and watch all day?? LOL!

paula eagleholic said...

She is done chowing down, and they are moving some sticks! I think Lib left and returned real quick!

paula eagleholic said...

I would be running out to the nest all the time, Hedgie!!

normabyrd said...

Thanks MEGAN!---They are MOVIN' STICKS like crazy!---Maybe they want a place to settle down until the ice storm is over!----NO SOUND HERE EITHER!!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Loving watching this lovely couple!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

HP happening.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Eagle LOVE!!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Love em and leave em!

normabyrd said...

WHOA!---I see when these EAGLES settle in the nest!!----I WON'T EVER GET ANYTHING ACCOMPLISHED!!
Love watching!!!----

wvgal_dana said...

female 69 tried out the nest cup 01 is looking around Sound is very good not like our spitting camel sound

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' BLUEFIELD SHARON!!----Feeling better?----

paula eagleholic said...

Daggone, I always miss it!!

normabyrd said...

NAW! SHARON!!-----he is coming back!-----just watch!----ho!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Yes, Normabyrd, I feel a lot better. Still have this one drain and go back to the surgeon on Thursday but am sure they won't take this drain out yet. Still draining too much.

paula eagleholic said...

And she is cleaning up the nestovers....again!!

wvgal_dana said...

I was thinking after coming back from helping hubby (he is sick).
What are they talking about eagle in our nest. I don't see an eagle. I refreshed and there is an eagle in our nest. Glad I did get to see some.

normabyrd said...

Flew the coop!!!

NatureNut said...

Poof...

paula eagleholic said...

Think Lib just arrived in the upper branch at noonish. Then Belle flew up there as well.

Dana, hope Ed feels better...

wvgal_dana said...

One left and WE and flew back in with a stick. Right away 01 took it and mended it in with others. Now she is re-arranging other sticks.

normabyrd said...

DANA!---What wrong with ED???---

movin said...

Before I get caught up in anything else this morning,

*** GOOD MORNING ***

*** EVERYONE ***


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Paula might be the stomach flu hitting him. He was up early AM lost last nights supper. So we'll see. I put back pork chops will serve him soup this evening.

69 at WE just flew off for more sticks.

wvgal_dana said...

yep back with sticks and more nestorations at WE

NatureNut said...

Hi, Sharon! Good to hear from you. Still have a drain? Poor thing, you're gonna be dried out!!
☺ ☺ ☺

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' MOVIN'JIM!!---We have had the EAGLES on almost all morning!
LIFE IS GOOD!!

movin said...

Did you see the eagle at BWE??


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

movin said...

Morning, Norma,

I did get a look at both Liberty & Belle in the nest a few minutes ago...looks like quite a few back East are getting serious about the mating program again.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

normabyrd said...

OUR EAGLES JIM!---BELLE & LIBERTY!!----

hedgie said...

Yes, Jim, stick around...they WILL be back!! Hmmmm...sounds like your gov's line, huh?

normabyrd said...

MT NEST!

paula eagleholic said...

Dana - the female at WE is Wray, not Dianna #69. Dianna hasn't been seen since LY March 08.

normabyrd said...

DANA!---Be very careful that you don't catch it!!---Just wash hands every 5 min.---I pray that he just has an upset stomach---not the flu!

NatureNut said...

Just went outside & saw eagle flying down the river. Whoopee!
Heron has been huddled in the tall grass at river's edge all day. We're having COLD drizzle. At least it's not ice.

hedgie said...

Dana, sorry Ed is feeling puny.
Just don't you catch it!! Lysol, Lysol!!!

hedgie said...

Jim, what's your weather like? Talked to my friend out there last evening, but we never discussed the weather!

normabyrd said...

WHOA!! NATURENUT!!---You have been blessed with EAGLES today! ho!--We haven't had ice here either---but it's a cold--wet--dreary day!

normabyrd said...

need food!

normabyrd said...

Forgot to tell you MEGAN!---I love your 'ROLY POLY' SNOW MAN!!

movin said...

Well, Hedgie,
It's not bad today in So Cal...mostly cloudy, 55°. It will range from 45°-63° by day's end.

The heavy, wet fog we had nights and mornings last week is gone from our area now.

NatureNut said...

Had a chance to read back & Dana, hope your hubby is better soon.
We've been lucky so far. I didn't get the other type flu shot, but Fubby did. Seems every year I get shot, I get some other kind of flu!
